[D&D 4E] [Monster] Kobold Gear Warrior

In the last installment of Dungeon Design I've pointed to a problem with Kobold Dragonshields in my playtest session. They have an AC too high for 1st level PCs and the fight gets boring quickly.
Also I need a low level soldier to use in fights without having to sign the stupid GSL.
So here comes the Kobold Gear Warrior.

For this kobold I've just lowered the AC, modified the Shifty power in a way will be my official shifting related power for kobolds and added a reaction with the shield, just to add more flavor.

The crappy art is mine as usual. I will bother clkolbe when the series is finished.

To be honest this kobold was not planned, but who cares?
Comments will be welcome as usual!
