02955: Krokuta, Gnoll Cleric

Recommended Posts

If she's a cleric, I'd really hate to meet one of their high priestess...


I've posted a few pics of her before, in my 'Gadgetman! is messing with paints' thread, and even in the SirForscale competition thread, but now that she's finished, she wanted her own thread.

(I've been working on her for a couple of weeks now. Speed painter? who, me? )








Can I remember which colours I used?

Fur is AP Monster Brown, with the mane and snout getting a hit of MSP Dragon Black.

Leatherwork is MSP Bones 09428 Saddle Brown. I kind of like the red tint of this.

Her weapon is MSP Honed Steel and Blackened Steel, with a bit of Adamantium Black smeared liberally here and there on the ball.

The Armor is AP Weapons Bronze, with the spikes more Blackened Steel. The belly portion I think is more Honed Steel.

Her cloth is MSP Bones Heraldic Red.

The Base got hit with Desert Sand, some Moss green and Lichen Green.

The wash used on her armor and on the base is Coat D'Arms Superwash Dark Brown.

The whatever it is hanging on her hip is hanging by something painted in carrottop Red, with Orange Highlight.

The roll on her back?

It was basecoated with Dragon Black... the rest is lost in a fog...

A couple of jewels were made with Tamiya Clear Red.

  Firstly, let me admit that I am scare-roused...


  Then, understand I am in no way an expert...


  While the colors are great and precise, to my eye there is opportunity for shading/highlighting almost everywhere.


  Almost every color is in need of more variation.


  I don't often critique this way, so feel free to disregard, I would say you have an absolutely fantastic base coat on this model!

Yeah, you're right, it needs shading and highlighting.

I'm working on learning how to do that these days.


As for more variation...

Possibly. I was trying to draw the viewer's eyes forst towards her eyes, then her teeth, which I think I succeeded with.

      I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin). 


      They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)

      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      This is my first mini painting, just finished it tonight. I have a lot to learn, especially the correct way to dry brush. But I followed a Reaper paint kit on the steps for their minis and this is what I came up with.
      Once I get the hang of the minis themselves I'd like to learn to make custom bases, this one just looks awful as is.
      For some reason I can't get the picture to show the color true either, it's a much more grayish blue than this bright color that is shown.
      All in all, I'm pleased with its turn out.

      Pulled this guy out of the current round of the Box of Goodwill and painted him up over the course of two evenings. 



      I apologize for the low quality photos, but I've had such low drive to get pictures taken lately that I just wanted to break the ice and get the ball rolling.

      This model is a Dark Sword Miniatures masterpiece of a sculpt by Jeff Grace. Never before have I seen so many tiny etchings on plate armor, especially on a figure that is barely 1.6 inches high. I feel a bit let down by my red OSL, but then again, this was only my second real attempt at the process, which is surely one I need to practice more.
