  1. Okay, I couldn't really resist the silly title that had a touch of alliteration... Guess it's a thing for me or something. Anyways, I figured I'd want to do up a long-term WIP thread featuring a themed army that has the goal of being made mostly of Reaper miniatures... That and hey, I like gnolls and minotaurs, so... Why no! Not quite certain what the precise theme is just yet, but we'll roll with "spots and stripes are awesome, as is a love for axes and mythology in general" as the starter of it all. Initially, this army will be made mostly (if not all) with Bones figures, but eventually metal minis will find their way in. Bones are rather convenient with their pricing, and there is a wide selection on offer! It's also something to paint other than my various Games Workshop armies (Tau, Catachans, a scattered amount of Space Marines, a few Tyranids (for now), Skaven, as well as (fantasy) Orcs, although I have nowhere near as many greenskins), and my main focus is purely on fun, with fluff to come as things go. That and I very much so plan on spending a good amount of time on each mini, not just for detail, but to improve my own skills in general. One could potentially argue that I intend on making these guys more of my "showpieces", which is something I don't mind the thought of at all I like how @Glitterwolf formats their posts, so... I'm thiefing parts of it, as it's a nice formatting, and of course provides a reasonable amount of detail for it all, so why not Pictures were taken with my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge) because at the time I didn't quite feel like messing around with my G85 - or something to that effect ~_^ First and foremost, we have double trouble with a handsome hunk, I mean a minotaur who means business! 77012 Gnoll Warrior, 77013 Minotaur, and 77236 Bloodmane. White bones doesn't quite look appropriate in my eyes as it's "naked", so let's fix that... ^Both gnolls now have primer on them... And of course the couple of mold lines I missed are blatantly visible... Not that I mind, it's always nice to find them NOW other than a few hours into things... I'm planning on going somewhat darker for their fur, hence why the medium-ish grey priming job. Paint used: 09108 Brush-on Primer 09065 Grey Liner Two parts primer, three parts grey liner, one drop of water to improve flow. ^Not to be outdone, our fearless minotaur jumps into the fray as well, although somewhat lighter than the gnolls. Something about how a fox is thinking about going with a more "traditional" medium brown. Would have used brown liner, but, uhm, don't have that, so grey liner it is. Paint used: 09108 Brush-on Primer 09065 Grey Liner Three parts primer, two parts grey liner, one drop of water to improve flow. ^And since I just had to have him on my last order, here we have most of what I'll call our first leader, or even general of it all, 77376 Minotaur Demon Lord, partially test-fit. I ran out of time to get the mold lines on the other six parts, but I'll be working on that today. Goal is to have him assembled today, and quite possibly primered as well. I'm not quite certain as to precisely what colour I'll be going with on him, but for some reason an almost "aflame" reddish-coppery-orange with hints of brown in it come to mind.
  2. This is a heavy detailed bust from Legendarion. Meet Gebhuza the Hyena Warrior. In my mind he's an assassin / Bodyguard type, look at all those knives he's carrying besides his sword, I tried to make him into a Spotted Hyena. Hope you guys enjoy him. For those interested the WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62312-gebhuza-hyena-warrior-bust-by-xherman1964/
  3. I'm a little (a lot) behind on my threads, and even more so on getting to work on May's figure of the month. It didn't help that I didn't order him until the middle/end of the month. I started last night... Prep was done in the usual way, first by washing in warm soapy water, then attaching him to the cork. I then cleaned up mold lines, though I missed a few. Mainly the one running across his knuckles on his left hand. Then I painted on a 5:2 brown liner & flow improver mix. As you can see below, I'm working on a few other minis too. The orc and werebat will get their own threads later. Tonight was blocking in base colors, and working a bit on the skin. I'm sticking with the gnoll theme I did way back in the chainmail days with the gnolls all being demonic, to one extent or another. So they all get greyish fleshy faces, hands, and feet. I used Void blue for that, then mixed in cloudy grey to bring the color up. The fur was Nut Brown, with the ruff getting some Vallejo Red Leather. The cloth is Dragon Red, as are the lips. Everything that is going to be metal got a coat of Black. And that's where I'll pick it up tomorrow! Thanks for looking. C&C welcome!
  4. So I finally got tired of this guy, and basically finished him up, put him on the base and called him done.... Tried a few new things with him, such as adding an off white to the base color of his skin for high lighting, as well as the work on his "Skirt" Overall, I am certainly happy with him as a piece to be used eventually in a Frostgrave campaign... Thanks for looking! G OOpsie, WiP here June will be the Black Orc Archer, The Haminister of Truth and I poked around the catalog and came up with next months mini... 03429: Black Orc Archer in Metal 77056: Orc Sniper (Archer) For those of you that prefer Bones....

    02704: Lord of Gnolls

    Another demon lord for the index: I'd like to give special thanks to @Gadgetman! for his advice on my Gnoll Warrior post. I used a lot of his suggestions to improve this mini, especially highlighting the jaws and matted fur. Uploaded via mobile phone, so hopefully the pictures aren't too big. Enjoy! -E.E.

    77012: Gnoll Warrior (x4)

    Here are some gnasty gnolls for your enjoyment! Tried to do some work on groups with an army/matching uniform look... ... And some highlighting on raised areas (the gnoll's left knee). The lighting isn't super great in these pictures (sorry!) but I promise you all they DO have spooky red eyes, as per the usual evil hunters. Next post will likely be a return some bigger minis (I just can't quit my demon lords!). Until then, take care of yourselves! -E.E.
  7. Finishing up my Otherworld Miniatures so I can get back to my Reaper stuff. I wanted my gnolls to look really dirty, so dirty that their fur is greenish brown. DM5b Gnoll Warrior II, DM5d Gnoll Chieftain, ME3a Evil Magic User I

    small squad of gnolls

    This poor tribe of gnolls has been sitting on my desk half finished for well over a year. I decided I needed to clear them off, so I did enough to get them up to tabletop. I'm not happy with the coloration on the fur, but I still have more to learn there. Luckily I have a big pile of Bones to practice on.
  9. I can almost smell how bad this guy reeks.. and that greasy hair ugh.

    02955: Krokuta, Gnoll Cleric

    If she's a cleric, I'd really hate to meet one of their high priestess... I've posted a few pics of her before, in my 'Gadgetman! is messing with paints' thread, and even in the SirForscale competition thread, but now that she's finished, she wanted her own thread. (I've been working on her for a couple of weeks now. Speed painter? who, me? ) Can I remember which colours I used? Fur is AP Monster Brown, with the mane and snout getting a hit of MSP Dragon Black. Leatherwork is MSP Bones 09428 Saddle Brown. I kind of like the red tint of this. Her weapon is MSP Honed Steel and Blackened Steel, with a bit of Adamantium Black smeared liberally here and there on the ball. The Armor is AP Weapons Bronze, with the spikes more Blackened Steel. The belly portion I think is more Honed Steel. Her cloth is MSP Bones Heraldic Red. The Base got hit with Desert Sand, some Moss green and Lichen Green. The wash used on her armor and on the base is Coat D'Arms Superwash Dark Brown. The whatever it is hanging on her hip is hanging by something painted in carrottop Red, with Orange Highlight. The roll on her back? It was basecoated with Dragon Black... the rest is lost in a fog... A couple of jewels were made with Tamiya Clear Red.

    77234 Boneflail, Gnoll Cleric

    His arm must be hiding some really strong muscles to be able to swing that GIANT flail. So do Gnoll Clerics cast spells? If so they should be Gnoll appropriate. Like making someone drool uncontrollably. Or giving someone fleas or the Mange.

    77104 BlackTongue, Gnoll Archer

    I'd like to see what a gnoll was originally intended to look like. Gnome + Troll does not equal hyena man. Anyway, his arm seemed to fit better this way. Maybe he has his own unique style.

    77012 Gnoll Warrior

    Starting my Gnoll/Orc/Gnoll/Orc pattern until I run out of Gnolls. Then I'll splice some other monster in between my many orcs.

    77388 Gnoll Warrior

    First Gnoll I've painted in a long while. He was fun. I think i'll paint the rest now.

    Ral Partha? Gnolls

    I painted these guys some 17 years ago? Maybe a little longer? I can't remember what manufacturer they are. Did Ral Partha start making 28mm minis right before they mysteriously disappeared? I have some savage orcs too that are from the same line I think.

    Gnancy the Gnoll

    Meet Gnancy the Gnoll. A friend of mine had the idea of a gnoll character who was considered too beautiful to live among the gnolls (their patron goddess Lamashtu exalts deformity and ugliness). So she left the gnolls to pursue a life among humans, and became a paladin of Sarenrae - pathfinder's neutral-good sun deity. It was so delightfully incongruous, I had to paint her! I started with the bones gnoll warrior, but did a lot of converting. I mended the tattered kilt, and added a sunburst image to the belt buckle. I replaced the mace with a scratch-built scimitar, which is Sarenrae's preferred weapon. But I'm most proud of the shield, which I converted into a giant holy symbol of Sarenrae. Hooray for greenstuff! Now Gnancy and her party are about to begin their quest through Katapesh. I hope to have the others painted soon!

    77104: Blacktongue, Gnoll Archer

    So running out of time this month, I blame the snow castle: I speed-painted this guy in 2 hours, and another 30 min on stamping his base. the biggest problem may be getting paint to stick to the milliput base. another few layers? actually using primer? whats you experience? down to 2 unpainted gnolls of my 11. the last guys are primed, next month perhaps.
  19. Part 2 of my gnoll horde, used to further practice TMM, eyes, and basing. Eyes have improved markedly since the first batch taking the level-up painting class with Michael Proctor helped here, although I am still ignoring the white dot. TMM - about the same as the previous batch, starting to shade with some non-metalics to reduce the shine in the shadows. -putting the cork on a small round base (middle) didn't work at all. I tore it off, and put it on a 30mm washer, which disappears under the cork. way better. Eyes: Basing was done with a washer (slight larger than 40mm THANKS reaper!) layer of cork and then rocks, tea, and grass tufts (GW) Comments & Criticism welcome, especially on the techniques I am focusing on. I want to get better.

    Reaper Bones Gnoll

    I am feverishly painting this year in an attempt to get my existing pile of bones finished before the Bones 3 Kickstarter package arrives at my door. This tutorial is how I painted my Reaper Bones Gnoll. Please let me know what you think.
  21. Technique Practice, month one. 4 gnolls,painted the eyes, TTM on the armor and then basing using a Basius stamp pad. also by necessity fur. These three each have a base color that mirrors their skirt. the spear is toothpick and green stuff. the water effect is practically invisible. I cut the blue gnolls hand off, and rotated it. Hopefully he does not look like he is hitting himself.... I am happiest with the eyes, the TMM seems okay, the basing still a work in progress, but I learned a lot trying them.

    Gnoll Reaver of Kargir -14611

    Painted this as a gift for my cousin. I was a little bit rushed at the end to finish and didn't get to highlight/detail as much as I would have liked and also relied on dry brushing to speed things up, which I don't care for. Found out my aunt is in town and can bring him the box of goodies I made him without me having to mail off. This was the last to go in. My main goal was to have fun and experiment with the base and I was very happy with it. I've never had mud come out so well. Tough painting things I know I will never see again. Hard to part with the stuff, but he has more use for them with his long time game group and I like painting them, but don't really have a use for the models after I am done. Hope you enjoy.
  23. As another part of the 54mm challenge Ub3r N3rd and Dontfear started I have chosen this one from Legendarion. Gebhuza Hyena Warrior Bust, Awesome sculpt, no flash at all... Only the sword is separate so no filling gaps with greenstuff, just clean it, paint it.. The "paint it" part is easier said then done, sooo much detail.. all those knives... He's amazing. So first Pic, right out of the box. Pleas be patient with me, I've got three busts a 54mm and a 28mm on my workbench now.
  24. I painted a couple figures for my campaign while I was finishing off my lion and cookpot. The bard is 02186: Alfred Redlute by Sandra Garrity. The party bard is human, and plays him as a tattooed rockstar. He even has tattoo artist as his downtime profession. Of course I have no freehand skills, so instead I gave him a red band/mask to give the general feel of a tattooed character. We had discussed painting his face like a member of Kiss, but again, no freehand ability. It isn't obvious from the pictures, but I did actually paint his eyes and pupils, and the right side at least turned out well. The bard was miscast, but fortunately the seam isn't too visible, other than along the blade and the left side of his face. The facepaint helps downplay that, so it doesn't look too bad. I wish now I had gone with a different colour for the trousers, the colour is too close to the gold trim on his tunic. Also, I should have dabbed some gem colours onto his necklace, it doesn't really stand out next to the flesh and leather strap. It's a really nice figure, I wish I could do it proper justice, but it looks good on the table. I also skimped on the base because I was rushed. The mini is glued to a Dungeon Crawler base, I got their vampire bundle with their last kickstarter and got a ton of them. They are great, he can connect a torch or driftglobe, so we don't lose track of who is carrying a light. Although, as currently the only human in the party, it's always him. Still, it is handy for me as the DM to adjudicate surprise. His hair is brown with some reddish highlights, even though it seems almost grey in the pictures. The gnoll is the bones figure, 77012: Gnoll Warrior by Tre Manor. Ironic note, I hadn't seen Adrift's version until looking up the mini for this post, so I didn't know how closely the clothing colour scheme is. His is more orange vs. my gold, but still, very similar. I tried to capture the spotted look of hyenas, they have very random seeming spots so I tried hard to not repeat myself. It was definitely hit and miss, some spotting looks great, others not so much. I decided not to paint his eyes, hyena eyes are basically black anyway. I also tinted his ears pink like the inside of a dog or cat's ears. I like how it turned out, but it's not very hyena-like. His base colour is 09061 linen white, if I had more time I could have darkened up a few areas since hyenas aren't monochromatic, but there's a small enough area of hide showing that it doesn't look too bad. For some reason the brush on sealer stripped the paint in a few spots. Along the front straps and the back of his skirt are the most obvious spots, though it came off in a few areas. Maybe I didn't let it dry long enough. Hopefully I'll get back to it and touch up those areas. I like the colour I wound up with for his base. Just for fun I painted it with 09670 Pumpkin Orange I got as a promo colour with an order last year. It is a fantastic pumpkin colour, but was too bright so I mixed it with pure black and washed it over top. It ended up with an almost volcanic look, something I want to play around with in the future.

    77012 Gnoll Warrior Test figure

    Critique please! This is the test fig for my gnoll contingent that came with one of my bones kick starter sets. The rest are about half way done, but I wanted to get feedback before I got all the work done on all of them so I can take said feedback into account.
