Nice.

 

If you plan to do more,consider picking out the seams on the front of the shield with a slightly different colour.

It just adds a bit of detail and 'takes it up a level without too much extra work.

 

Teeth... I went over the mouth with MSP Monster Maw first(On the Krokuta Gnoll Cleric I did recently) then dry-brushed on an Ivory colour. Makes it really pop...

 

I find that Gnolls makes very 'noisy' minis(lots of detail that competes for attention), so it's difficult to 'guide' the viewer's eyes.

I guess there's only two ways of solving that; One or two 'points of attention' and trying to mute the rest down a bit, or taking it all out.

 

As for spells...

Aren't Clerics usually healers?

Imagine him with a 'cure wounds' spell capable of healing broken bones...

 

Even more terrifying thought...

If he's a Cleric, can you imagine a high-level priest?

I am painting my pack of gnolls that have been sitting around for years and I am on this one right now. Can anyone tell me what is on his shoulder? At first, I thought it was a pot, but now I see it is a skeleton of some sort, but I can't wrap my head around the features. Is it an animal skull?

 

Secondly, the shield certainly looks like animal hide, given the stitching, but the back looks like a traditional wood shield with an iron border. Is it hide wrapped over a wood or iron core?  Can someone interpret what is going on between the front and back of the shield?

 

As an aside, I also noticed that all of the gnolls have four "toes", except for one, which only has three. Artist interpretation I guess.

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Or, as I like to call him, Smaul Hollywood.

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂

      Hi all, just thought I'd share a couple images of my first Reaper mini painted up. It definitely seemed strange not priming something before getting started (typically print my own lately in resin, so have to prime those), but I wanted to try one of the Reaper products.
       
      I am by no means a pro, but each mini seems to get a bit better - constructive criticism welcome - I know I need to get a better photo setup sometime - maybe when the basement reno is done 🙂
       
      Next up is Boerogg Blackrime the Frost Giant...I love doing monsters so they're on-hand when needed for our D&D campaigns 🙂

      It's that time of year for Orcs...but I already did that.  So it's time to get spooky instead!
