Would there be interest in/support for doing this again this year?
This is the basic idea behind it for those not familiar:
The past couple Reapercons that I've been at, I have noticed a fair amount of swag bag/con exclusive figures that people didn't want getting tossed onto the melt table and/or left laying around.
I had the idea of collecting all the unwanted stuff, putting it in a box and shipping it around to folks who couldn't get to the 'con so that they could sort of 'be there, too'.
Unlike the regular BoGW, people donating wouldn't get anything out of the box, they would just be 'throwing away' the stuff they don't want in a slightly different direction. Maybe there would be a ribbon involved, maybe it might just be the thanks of people who will benefit done the line.
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!
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.
