Nice work Marvin! He looks great! Love the tattoo detail ^_^

 

Umm.. suggestions... maybe a lil more shading in his "muscle crevices" (lolz) and on his skirt thingy. Oh, and a neat base. Where's the skulpty bases you were talking about in randomness? ^_^

Very nice! 

I see you did a great job. 

 

You can do a little highlight to increase it (look at the picture and see where the light brights in your mini. Try to do the same with light tones of your colours.)

Thanks, y'all.

 

I still find myself, always, trying to find the balance with shadows and highlights. Tough for me to figure out.

      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.
       

       
      To be continued…

      "Bliss"
      Needed a civilian type for a game, and this was the best I find in my lead mountain.
      Dunno why, but I keep seeing him as one of those beer-making monks carrying a keg on his back.
      So I painted him as one who just "sampled" the merchandise and really liked the sample.
      The nose and cheeks were more "ruddy" IRL but doesn't show up well in the pictures.
      There is a lightish line at the top of the belly where I tried to repair the paint job after accidently flicking some dark wash on it.
      The line isn't really visible IRL but clearly seen in the pictures.
       
      Thanks for looking.

      Presenting Veteran Chisel, a player for the Masons Guild in the game of Guild Ball. 
      This is one of the many Guild Ball characters I don't know much about, although it's surprising she got a veteran version without popping up in any big story lines.
       
      Had a few issues with this one (even after painting them I still can't figure out her boots) plus she's yet another Guild Ball mini missing a few fingers.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Tre manor is at it again...   
      Another well-designed warband.    
       
      Unfortunately, one of the minis is a bit... not-PG. So no pictures.
