77235: Toghra, Gnoll Leader

Recommended Posts

It's great! The patterning is, er, spot on, and the leather is convincing. The black lips and eyes, and throat are just right. Rich palette and grass is nicely done.

Wow, this one really blew me away!  The face is amazing, and the leather and fur turned out awesome.  So much beautiful detail!

You did an excellent work on this chaotic evil Warlord. I like how these colors naturally work very well together, it's beautiful. I mean, as much as a Gnoll can be.

In my opinion, that's one of the deadliest monster of D&D when it gets hungry.

My players are going to come across a village that has been having citizens go missing...mainly children but also the adults who went looking for them. It is going to be gnolls. I am also going to be using the badger wolf that I first saw when you painted one! They are fascinating and work with gnolls. This is going to be a very tough encounter for the players but very fun for me! (I hope fun for them too!)

 

Thank you everyone! I really hated how they were looking at first but doing some back and forth on the fur/shading/highlighting and they came together. I do think they resemble World of Warcraft gnolls which was my goal so I am pretty happy and can't wait to throw them on the table and see what the players have to say!

Absolutely beautiful Pochi. I love the hard transition from white to brown. I shy away from that but seeing how well you executed it, I’m definitely going to have to try soon. Great job, and a killer tabletop addition!!!!

I never played World of Warcraft but was able to find some pictures of the Gnolls and you're right. The color you selected and the spots pattern you came up with matches the video game beasties fur.

 

I recently bought 77234 Boneflail the Gnoll Cleric, 02704 Lord of the Gnolls and a 03277 Hyena pack. Like you, I intend to use them in a future campaign. The Lord of the Gnolls 02704 is very impressive and towers the other Gnolls. He's 6 cm or 2 3/8 inches from the ground to the eyes, 8.5 cm or 3 3/8 inches to the top of its flail. Tre Manor, Bobby Jackson, Ben Siens and Jason Wiebe did an amazing work sculpting Reaper's hulking Gnolls.

 

The work you did on your Gnoll warband in inspiring, I will place an order to get the some more Gnolls and build myself a nasty bunch of Yeenoghu worshipers. As for when I will find time to paint them, that's another story.

      Tabletop cultists for my dnd game. I wanted them to have a look that I could either use to be sinister and evil, or even 'good' cultists that have gone too far...the leaders feature red and blue while their subordinates feature green and blue. I chose to do metallic masks of varying metal types and shades.
       
      My goal was to work on the speed at which I paint things like NMM so that I can get results without agonizing as I might for a competition piece.

      Hello forum family, want to share to you my last work: Lou AKA chibi-Cthulhu 
      Tried a purple contrast on him, the outcome is pretty nice, I think.
      The base is made sclupting some clay balls and cutting it in half to make the acid bubbles painted with fluo colors from Vallejo; then I've sculpted some tentacles and added to the base to make it more dramatic. A coat of glossy sealer and I call it done.
      Hope you like it:



      As always every comment, advice and criticism is super welcom!

      This was the must-have from Bones 4 for me! I cut off and modded the legs and created the base with apoxie sculpt so the hut can be placed on its own or on the legs. The paint scheme is "chicken" ;) 
       
      I can't even remember all the colors I used on this thing, it was a mad mix of Reaper browns and golds, Pokorny terracotta, homemade washes, and I pretty much just kept going at it until I was happy. I hit everything with a matte varnish except several coats of gloss varnish on the window glass.

      Hello forum family,wanna show you my last work, the Necromancer the bones one; she got way less details than the metal one, but it is good to try new techs.
      So, why do not try to refine my NMM and new skin type?
       
      And this is the outcome:

       
      Had to paint the low edge of the blade, as the sculpted one is too small, and I tryed some basic reflection, pretty happy of the result :)

      Hope you will like her, and rememmber than any advice and criticism is welcome!

      My niece has her birthday in a week or so.  We were up visiting so I thought I would bring up a dragon I created for her.  I also had gotten the copper and alchemy set from scale 75 and kaphrixis is a copper dragon so...
       
      Here is the finished piece.  The body was done with copper from scale 75 mixed with some Jaquards dry copper pigments for effect. The wings were aquamarine mixed with the copper and that was the effect I got.  I thought the upper wings were gorgeous 
       
      Then I asked: where would a dragon keep his spellbook?  Answer: tatooed.to his wings of course!
       
      So enjoy! I think I will try this again and see if I can duplicate or improve the results.  I especially want to work on some tattoo effects.  I would ask for critique but the metal effect just doesn't come through the camera well.  In real life the lower scales are significantly darker than the upper scales (decayed metal vs new copper) but it just doesn't carry.
       
      And she got the mini today and loved it!
