Here are some gnasty gnolls for your enjoyment!

Tried to do some work on groups with an army/matching uniform look...

... And some highlighting on raised areas (the gnoll's left knee).

The lighting isn't super great in these pictures (sorry!) but I promise you all they DO have spooky red eyes, as per the usual evil hunters.

Next post will likely be a return some bigger minis (I just can't quit my demon lords!). Until then, take care of yourselves!

Gnolls really are all about individuality.

The different blood splatters on their weapons, the individual fur patters, and the bloodlust... Well, maybe they have the exact same bloodlust... 

 

They could stand to have slightly different fur both in general tone and in patterns, to liven them up a bit.

 

Here's my take on the same mini:

Then also Krokuta:

where I'm particularly happy about her mouth and teeth... 

 

Gnolls are based on Hyenas, who happens to have nasty teeth and a powerful bite.

It's not too difficult to get the mouth done. I think I painted the gums and teeth all with a pinkish colour, then drybrushed a light ivory colour on the teeth.

 

The shield could probably use a bit of matte varnish of some sort on the wood parts as wood generally isn't that shiny.

But yeah, it's a good job and I'd be happy to have them on my shelf.

 

You may want to edit your tags, though. You misspelled 'shield'. ;-)

Also, if you add your username as a tag, it makes it easier for others to find more of your posts

      Hi folks,
       
           My very first snow base! I haven't attempted Non-Metallic Metal on a shield like this before and I'm happy with how it's turned out :)
       

       
       
      Thanks,
      Mocha

      I haven't posted for a bit but I have been painting. I have been painting mostly for D&D but some just because they are fun models. Luckily, the two cross over quite a bit so I get to paint fun models for D&D!
       
      I painted up these little goblins. I have the other 6 waiting to be painted. For these, I decided little greenskins. They are so cute!

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

      Hi guys, back again after a long absence... again.  I took a very long time to paint something that was supposed to be a speed paint.  I was painting a Bones Finari and wasn't happy with the cast so I was just trying to get her done quick to get her off the shelf but then everything went wrong with the paint job and I stalled out for a long time.  I'm not posting her because I wasn't happy but I've finally moved on.  This is my Gnoll Warrior.  I kind of like him.  He is part of my new strategy to just paint and get used to the motions and not try to be perfect all the time.  Trying to be perfect puts more minis on shelves of shame instead of in display cabinets.  I thought his mane looked a lot like a mohawk so I decided that maybe he would dye it in the colours of his tribe or clan or war party or whatever.  I thought it was neat.  If I did it again I would maybe use more muted colours but this first time I was afraid maybe muted colours would fade out and go unnoticed.  I was happy with the eye and jaws on his right side but not his left (which is why there are no good pictures of his left side ).  But here he is, he's imperfect and I'm happy with him!  Comments are welcome as always!
