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.

So to start out I have at least a base coat for the fur on these guys. I am trying to improve my skills with each mini I complete and thought what better way than to have the amazing talent on these forums guiding my hand. We start with one of the gnoll warriors. i am thinking his skin is done, excluding a couple touch ups here and there. What do you think? Also is the orange too much? If so I was thinking of making it the red/orange like the loin cloth. Any tips on making the copper stand out more? Maybe a darker color for the leather? Next is Toghra. I think the dark fur is about done, but let me know if you think it could use a couple more colors. Still trying to figure out the lighter fur. I just rebased the feet after creating a mess. I want to add some more color to the light fur but don't want it to blend too much with the dark fur. Not sure if I will stay with the red on the armor. Though I guess a red/orange theme on all would create a sense that they run together, and give a tribal feel. I am still working out the mouth as well so any advise on that is appreciated. Leaning towards another coat of flat black with some grey highlights. Next is one of my archers. I did the green because when researching I found out that apparently they are a ghoulish green. So I thought I should do at least one with this color scheme. It still needs work as you can see. Again not really sure how I will approach the lighter fur. Also the darker fur looks a bit too reptillian imo. Lastly is the whole bunch. After doing the fur on three I think I will stick to three different color schemes. I wasn't too impressed with the others.
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.
