  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 03190: Blacktongue, Gnoll Ranger By John (Tre) Manor The WIP: 03190: Blacktongue, Gnoll Ranger Brothers Of Tooth And Claw Sige -------- Barton -------- Pa'oul -------- Dagmar Dust of the Colosseum - Part 3 I was sitting on the opposite end when he sprinted to a stop after the gates rose. Before the dust could settle he was already reaching for an arrow. We had never seen a beastman archer before but then again no one had ever seen what had happen that day. That bow of his, black as night. They say it was made from the root of the elder tree in the Nether forest. But I think it was his eyes that capture the attention of the crowd; piecing ebony stare. After he let fly his first arrow the crowd yelled out his name, “SIGE, SIGE, SIGE!†The sound of his arrows screaming across the battleground made him a crowd favorite. It was truly freighting to think of an entire pack of these fellows hunting you. Name prononcation: [siig] like signature _____________________________________________________________ *White balance only* Thanks for all the encouragement. I feel the force growing in me! How does everyone feel I am progressing? C&C Welcome!
  8. I got a chance to paint Tre Manor's Gnoll Warrior, the Bones version. Love this guy--I spotted him when I visited a gaming store that actually keeps Reaper stuff stocked, and he became my first in-store Bones purchase. But, anyway. I "primed" him with gray liner and went from there. I don't know why I painted him gray instead of brown; because Disney, maybe. I remember those Lion King hyenas as gray, though I'm not even sure of that. But I shot for gray with black trim, such as it is. This was my first time putting gold metallic paint over a dark base, and I absolutely loved that. How metallics go on over this in general is big part of the reason I've shifted to black primer. Anywho, had fun with this fellow. My wife thought he was really brutal, too, and loved his shield. So when I please the wife in some way, especially with a mini, it's always a bonus. Thanks for looking!

  10. Hi, For no specific reason while browsing through my bits box I decided to cut up a Bones Gnoll Warrior and transform it into a blood crazed Gnoll Boar-Centaur. The upper body is Reaper model #77012 and the legs are from a boar (I think a GW sculpt). Here is a pic of the work in progress (my attempt at hiding the seam with green stuff). Comments and suggestion welcome!
  11. Hello again friends! Painted using a Reaper round #1 and the following Reaper Master Series paints: Red Shadow, Redstone, Gory Red, Auburn Shadow, Black Green, Dark Elf Shadow, Midnight Blue, Faded Khaki, Splintered Bone. Per Proctor's request, I tried doing bigger photos this time and I even blew one photo way up so that you could get in close. I decided to do a scar through his right eye; first time attempting to paint that feature. I also added a line of battle damage along the top right edge of his armor to add some details/interest and show that this is one battle-hardened gnoll savage. My goal was for armored/metallic parts to be relatively dull in appearance because I just wouldn't expect this fella to take good care of his equipment. C&C always welcome from ANY level of painter.
  12. First Show-Off Post These are some of the last minis I painted before the presbyopia started to kick in. At one time I could see what I was doing! But since then I have dis-improved. My experiments with OTC reading glasses continue—I must have almost a dozen pairs at this point. If I remember rightly I painted the Gnoll and the Paladin at a Reapercon several years back. Or at least that is when I started them. But the remembry is a funny thing—so that might not be totally right. At one point Sir William got to serve in a Warhammer Chaos Army as either a BSB or a unit Champion. It helped that his broccoli base + the plastic regulation square base + the steel washer let him tower head and shoulders above the other plastic Chaos warriors. The steel washer is under there to let him stick magnetically to the unit tray. I need to incorporate the Gnoll into my Reven Army for Warlord.
  13. This is a personal favorite I did. Started with figure P02467A: Gnoll: with axe, and turned him into one of my favorite characters from my old D and D days, Kabal Bloodcleaver. His blade is El-Ravagers Hackmaster, and I couldn't find one big enought to match it's might, so It's actually a dollhouse prop I found online and used for this purpose. In game terms, is a +12, 1D100 dmg weapon, and only the Mighty Kabal is worthy to wield it.
  14. Figured I liked her enough and did a good enough job she should have her own show off thread Gnoll was painted for JackMann
  15. Here is my take on Kashia Ghostmane (Reaper Warlord 14593) , the Lupine tribe shaman. She was fun to paint, I got my fur color inspiration from her name. Linked due to nudity: http://www.coolminiornot.com/352429?browseid=8370375 Edited to add SKU to title
  16. Gnoll MacDonald raids your farm E-I-E-I-O! You don’t want this kilted maniac mocking you with his laughter whilst raiding your livestock. He does seem to be looking to give someone a Glasgow Kiss! Black base coat, fur and skin is desert yellow and khaki with soft tone ink shading and whatnot. I used a dark green for base under the mail, wood and all the leather. Soft tone ink and strong tone ink in places. The failed kilt taught me something: When trying to paint a thin white line in a nice tartan black/dark red/ brown framework: Thin the paint! Alot! Or what happens is that the paint dries on the brush, making it impossible to make a straight line, even less a latticework of them! Leaving horrible lumpy things ruining the tartan completely. So I had to do a part of it over. This time I dropped the fine white lines, keeping the classic MacGregor clan tartan. The base was built up on one end so the gnoll stood more dynamically in it’s pose, and then I stuck several tufts of Army Painter Meadow Flowers around the higher foot, as if he is treading in someone’s flower bed. It also makes for a slightly different type of base while keeping the style I use for these figures. As you might have noticed, I do not like the so-called Broccoli bases. Good thing the Bones material makes it really easy to alter them or even carve them right off.
  17. I'm out of painted stuff. It will be a while until I can post something again. I didn't know what exactly to do with that Pillar of Good and came up with this. Just getting my feet wet when it comes to experimenting with some of the basing stuff I have. Not exactly what I had envisioned, but I still find myself staring at it fairly pleased for now. Hope you enjoy. :)
  18. I bought an extra Bones gnoll warrior with flail to convert to carrying a spear instead. Pretty simple conversion, I just cut the flail off above and below the paw and drilled through where the remaining haft was gripped in his hand being careful not to damage the fingers. Then I took a length of Evergreen brand plastic rod and forced it through the resulting hole. It gripped it so well that I probably could get away without gluing it at all but I did put a small drop of CA glue just to be sure. Then I drilled a hole in the tip of the pole. Next I dug up a piece of spikey frippery intended for a 40k Chaos Rhino and cut one of the spikes off. Then I drilled a hole in its base. I glued a pin made from a paper clip in the hole on the end of the pole and then glued the spike on the pin as a spear tip. This spear is pretty chunky but since the Bones gnolls are a bit larger than the gnolls I already own I am planning to use them as Fiendish gnolls to lead the others so I think it appropriate that he's carrying a massive skewering spear. At any rate, I'm pleased with the conversion and it took all of 15 minutes, including digging around looking for something to use for a spear tip. This conversion was easy enough and turned out well enough that I'm sorely tempted to pick up 3 or 4 more flail gnolls for conversion to spear carriers. On a side note, I only took pics of the finished product because I had a devil of a time getting the Bones material to show up with detail rather than as a white blob. The pics I finally settled on are still pretty crappy but at least you can see what's going on with the conversion. Ironically, I screwed around trying to get pics to post longer than it took to do the conversion.
  19. This was a fun one where I combined Airbrush with hand painting. Roughly 6 hours of work. The look of the fur is inspired by the striped hyena.
  20. Btw I did remember to dust the kilt off before sealing this litter bugger :p
  21. So I picked up a few new jars of paint Tuesday and took a crack at my gnoll and here's what i have so far, Im having a little trouble with lighting today so it's kind of hard to see the tarnished effect on the right arm. I'm not entirely happy with the leather straps but with a limited paint selection you have to make due. DSCN0068 by Color out of space, on Flickr DSCN0064 by Color out of space, on Flickr DSCN0059 by Color out of space, on Flickr that's the best shot i could get that shows the green wash on the right arm.

  22. As an experiment I painted this Bones Gnoll Warrior without priming it first, and using DecoArt Americana Acrylics craft paint, which I dilute a lot with Liquitex flow aid and fluid retarder. There was no beading at all and the mini really took this cheap paint well. I just got back into painting minis after a twenty year hiatus (actually longer if I am honest) and wanted to keep the costs down while I worked on my technique. I thought some folks might be interested in the results from an unprimed Bones. Of course now that I have photographed it I see all kinds of mistakes, but I did paint it really fast (for me). I chose the colour of the fur based on how I thought he looked kind of like a lion (rather than the hyena look). Cheers,
