77012 Gnoll Warrior Test figure

Recommended Posts

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.

 Nice. My only critique would be that the skin and armor are very similar colors and tend to blend together. You may want to consider darklining around the armor plates and the armor straps to better separate them visually from the rest of him.

There's some lovely shading on the scale armor, but yeah - contrast would be my main criticism.  Even just darkening the fur slightly would help make the figure pop.

The armor plates are done in a metallic copper, which in real life present with a stark difference to the fur, as such I hadn't noticed the color similarities.  Thank you for the feedback, I would have messed that up likely on the entire unit without it.   I'll show the more contrasted version when I post pic's of the entire unit.

That's exactly what I was thinking, too.

 

Looking forward to the new pics!

      Bones 4 core set #20.  Could not find a release # for him yet.  I took this guy and a few of his pals to Reapercon to work on in my spare time (ha!) and got him base coated using some of the new Pathfnder paint set.  I couldn't help but notice the chickens and the look of terror on his face, thus the name.   Finished him with a basic drybrush and wash for table top play.

      Painted this for a friend's group. Their party acquired a dog they love so much that they spent all their gold to armor him up. He now has the highest AC in the party.

      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!

      Sir Guinemar the Righteous takes his loyal pooch Worral with him on all his adventures. Worral is a good companion, a devoted friend and useful for catching rabbits. He wears a jaunty hat with a feather in it because Sir Guinemar discovered that it makes his doggo an absolute babe magnet.

      After years of searching, Sir Guinemar finally found the legendary lost treasure of Lord Nicholai Brevil, reputedly the wealthiest man in the five kingdoms, in the ruins of Aeckland Castle. After giving a quick prayer of thanks, Sir Guinemar heard a noise somewhere in the dungeon and went to check it out, leaving Worral to guard the hoard of gold, silver and gemstones.
       
      That was 30 minutes ago.
       
      Worral has just noticed that Sir Guinemar forgot his sword.
       
      (Treasure chest by Debris of War; doggo by RBJ Games; sword by Reaper. And if you could find it in your hearts to ignore the fingerprints in the greenstuff flagstones, that would be great.)

      I recently finished kaphrixis using the scale 75 copper metallics.  It's for a gift so it needs to be sealed and I am at a loss as to what to use.  Using either a glosscoat or a dullcote will change the brightness of the metal.  Does anyone  have suggestions on which way to go?  Or is there another option?  If it were to remain mine I would just put it in the display case unsealed.
       
      Thanks for any help.
