Savage Dragon Conversion

Recommended Posts

My brother in law made a pathfinder character which looks like savage dragon, and of course there are no savage dragon minis. So he requested one of me.

 

Goldar ended up being a great mini for him, just added a fin (which I've been getting practice at), switched out his axe for a spear, and added a naga head to his belt. Whatever species the character is worships nagas, and his guy is evil, so he killed one and carries it around as a trophy.

 

Unfortunately the camera washed out the colour on him. The green is much brighter, and has more highlights, and the naga head is a bit grayer. Cause it's dead and decayed.

Comments, critique, suggestions all appreciated. Before I send it to Wyoming.

Actually a SD line was made. I've got SD & Dart (the white/silver female dart thrower). I'm not sure if they made more in the line. I can't remember exactly who the did the line but I got em from Mega Minis at the time, way way back..

 

I'll have to dig that SD up but it look like this, minus the Heroscape base. It has a integrated metal square base to him

Savage Dragon was always great. I got into it around 2007-ish, when my FLCS guy handed me a copy of the first TPB. After reading it, I spent the next few months buying all the rest that were available. At the time though, Erik Larsen was still the publisher for Image and the TPBs were years behind the singles at the time. I don't think they've caught up yet to this day, actually.

      So this is the first time I tried painting freehand on the shield  This is the end result of the conversion: 
       

       
      And for the conversion part, I didn't like neither this minis pose, nor its weapon choice (pickaxe really???), nor its commie looking (???) sigil on the shield. So I removed the weapon and sanded the shield. I also think that his pose looks a lot more natural as a spear throw than a pickaxe swing.. Also gave him some simple terrain and a quick paint  Thanks for looking!

      Gave this model a different arm and hand pose, sculpted a wooden stick and used a resin bit from avatars of war necromancer for the spear head. This was a speedpaint that took probably around an hour. Thanks for looking!
       

       

       
      The original model:

      This is one of the heroes from legend of drizzt board game. I gave him simple terrain and a super quick speedpaint. I like how he turned out. Thanks for looking

      Hi everyone, I recently had the pleasure of realizing that I inadvertently bought the same Gnoll model twice. So, I decided to convert two of them to create a little variety in my hunting party. Read the text under each picture to have more detail. This post was purposely written as a guide for any who would like to try their hands at converting Reaper Bones model or any other models.
       
       
      I used two 77236 Bloodmane the Gnoll Warrior sculpted by Tre Manor, 77235 Toghra the Gnoll Leader sculpted by Jason Wiebe and 14056 Weapon Pack 1 sculpted by Tim Kaufman.
       

       
       
      I first separated the dagger handle from the body. Just a simple notch did the trick.
       

       
       
      I then cut the trunk along the belt.
       

       
       
      Again, on the other side of the model, I cut the body following the belt as a guide.
       

       
       
      I have this hollow feeling in my stomach...
       

       
       
      Same thing for Toghra, cut the body along the belt line.
       

       
       
      I drilled a hole in Toghra’s lower section and cut a small nail to pin the two parts together.
       

       
       
      I drilled a hole in Bloodmane’s upper body section and tested the pin in.
       

       
       
      I glued the pin in the leg part. I’m using Gorilla Super Glue.
       

       
       
      I then removed the handaxe cutting the handle just above the fist. I keep it for later use.
       

       
       
      The tricky part is to drill a hole in straight line through the fist. I had to use a small drill bit, smaller than the new weapon handle not to tear the plastic.
       

       
       
      I used a slightly bigger drill bit to get the hole a little larger.
       

       
       
      After cleaning the mold line on the new weapon, I cut the handle in halves in order to keep the pommel intact.
       

       
       
      I had to use a file to reduce the diameter of the handle.
       

       
       
      Also, I removed two spikes from the shield to alter its aspect from the one the other Gnoll Worrior is wearing.
       

       
       
      Finally, I’m using a piece of wooden stick to adjust the posture of the model on its base.
       

       
       
      I often use this simple trick to level my models. I use super glue to fix the parts together.
       

       
       
      I’m using 40mm round base for the Gnoll. These models are large and even if there in game space size is 25mm, I personally prefer larger base to have more room for decoration.
       

       
       
      That’s it, I’ll need to fill the gap above the belt and along the shoulder.
       

       
       
      I’ll also be using Greenstuff to fill the gap and complete the base before cleaning everything with soft soap and water prior to painting.
       

       
       
      I added some notches on the cutting edge of the original Gnoll’s plastic axe. I’ll be using it as a battlefield wreck weapon to decorate the base.
