77012: Gnoll Warrior WIP

Recommended Posts

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.

Ok I'm guessing it is digital. Back the camera/ figure up in inch increments also if it doesn't have a timer brace your arms against something. On to the pertinent subject. Solid and neat job in blocking in the colors. Looking forward to more.

One of my favorite Bones models currently available. I had a blast painting this one myself, and it seems like you are too. And I love your color choices! They are basically the same ones that I did ::D: I can't wait to see progress on this guy.

took some extra pictures after I finished the shield and also gave it a green wash but it's going to take some more work to make it show around the studs on the shield.

 

Off the top of my head I want to wash the chain a couple more times to darken it up and also black wash his teeth a bit, the skirt and back still need work but it looks like it will have to wait till tomorrow as i think my Lrn2p kit came in today.

Excellent! Much better pictures. I stand by my last comment of good job blocking in the colors. I will add get some MSP Brown Liner and line the figure. An example of this can be seen on my ogre chieftan.

Very interesting, i will have to give that a shot. Something I Hate is every time I take pictures of a mini I notice tiny spots of paint that got into the wrong spot or unpainted areas >,> on a side note usps let me down again so no new mini's for me so Im going to spend the rest of the afternoon messing with this guy.

so one of my cats dumped a coffee cup full of water i was using to clean my brushes into the container my gnoll was sitting in while i was in the shower today as I was shaking the paint and water off the mini I figured this would be a good time to redo it and try some of the dry brushing and wash from the rat in the lrn2pk so the fur wouldn't look so monotone.

So got the mini primed and took another wack at it with some different ideas.

drybrushing the fur didn't come out as detailed as I wanted but imo it's an improvement over the original soild brown I originally used.

Also I used a coat of walnut on the leather straps and then washed them a number of times with a very light flesh tone.

Tried something new with the kilt/skirt thing, started with a walnut brown coat then 50/50 of the brown and carnage red then a coat of original citadel khorne red, it's much darker this time.

Anyway still have a lot of touch ups and washing to do and of course the shield.

When you were doing the skirt, you should've built it out as layers. Leave a little of the walnut in the deepest crevices, then leave a little of the 50/50 showing, etc.

 

Looks great, though.

yea your right about that, after rereading the post I realized I made a mistake but that's what I get for painting at 1am.

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      Every so often, a model catches my attention. Sometimes because it is excellent and inspiring, sometimes because there is something off about it. Sometimes the model is both.  Here is one such example:

      Yeah, it is the angle of the buckler thats just wrong. It simply should not happen. It triggers my OCD.
      This is the "Gnoll Warrior" from the "Thank You pack" add-on in the second Bones kickstarter. During the kickstarter it was presented as a line concept drawing and as is usually the case, the resulting miniature ends up slightly different. Still a perfectly good representation of the original concept art, but anyhow.
      That said, I do understand that one-piece castability requires certain angles and alignments for the mould to work, and to get the detail in the shield to show it cannot be sideways in the mould. There have been plenty of examples of minis in strange poses and/or holding things at strange angles because of this.
      This Gnoll is also stylistically rather different from the other Gnolls Reaper makes in Bones, perhaps it's just not so comic-like?
      But I ramble.
      The other day as I yet again was perusing the Drawers of Doom™, I picked this one for the painting table. But first it got to meet Mr. Scalpel for a field amputation followed by a quick rotation and graft:
      One drop of superglue later the case of the misaligned buckler was solved.
      Add a base and some paint:

      Good thing classic Bones material is really easy to slice and reposition. Such an excellent material for convertions as well.
       
       
       

      Jagged white parallells of sharp fangs emerged into the campfire light, then a staring yellow eye. Inquisitive, roughly probing clawed fingers followed. Snorting, foul breath enveloped me, causing me to gag.
      It jerked its beast-like head back, loud barks of mocking laughter spraying spittle in my face as I tried to stand my ground.
         "I smell fright, little man", the gnoll rasped out at last. "Why's that parlay-totem here?"
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!
