Rollo the Fellhanded, Red Box Games

Recommended Posts

This is Rollo the Fellhanded from Red Box Games. I notice now that the pictures contain quite alot of white dots, that's because I did a poor job with the spray on matt varnish. It usually looks much better but on this figure I failed to get a even spray :/ Also the face got abit to much so I had to sort of fix it. It wasn't a master piece before but I do think it looked abit better. But varnishing mistakes aside I'm fairly happy with how he turned out.

Good job! Hard to get to the end like that and have the sealer mess up on you. Good job on the musculature, especially the front.

I think I heard that anither coat of sealer can help reactivate the initial layer and help with this issue.

 

Can anyone confirm?

 

Great work, though.

More good stuff! Bummer about the spray; hopefully another coat or something else will alleviate the spottiness. Or is it even noticeable, in person?

I had something similar (Frosting) happen to me when I painted Rogan, and another coat of sealer did remove MY issue...

Thanks guys! I'm going to try another round of sealer. I've only been reluctant to do so before because of the flock on the base, but I think it can take a hit without much problem.

      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.

      "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.

      Finished up one of my first bones 4 minis.  The unnamed big brother to the bones 3 barbarian.

      He's a simple table top job, though I probably could have shaded a few details more. Like his bracelet.

       

      I used an ink wash too shade the fur of his cloak and loin cloth. It worked great except they are now both very shiny. I could tone them down with some matte sealer, bit I think I'm just going to declare them magical.

      Someone's grumpy today.

      here he is with his unfinished little brother. Little brother's weapons ate a bit mor floppy unfortunately. They'll likely take a few hot water baths to fix.

      WIP. Two things, first I couldn’t resist. Second I can’t believe I am the only one to do this.

      Hi guys,
      so finished this one a few days ago and he's been sent to his final home, a commission figure I was asked to do.  The figure itself is pretty neat, I'd never painted any Rackham figures before so it was something fun and different.  I think I can see a bit the joy of commissions for other people because you never know what you are going to receive. Anyhow, here he is, hope you enjoy him!
