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.

      Next up, a thundering of Giants from Reaper Miniatures Bones 4.  I went for 3 different skin tones this time.

      Speed paint! I’m happy with it though. There’s a lot to paint from the Kickstarter.

      I love this model.  Even with her slightly too-long sword hilt and bendy sword.  I straightened it, but it has slowly bent again.
      This is a figure to represent a female paladin of Sarenrae for our Pathfinder Reign of Winter campaign: a redhead whose favorite color is green.  That is why she is on a snow base.
      I wanted to spend a lot of time on her, and am very happy with the blending on the gray NMM.  It took about 3 rounds of painting transitions then glazing over the lines to smooth everything out.
      I tried a little weathering to the leather scabbards and belt to make them look scratched from adventuring use. 
      This was also the first time I tried giving a female figure makeup: blush, eye shadow, and lipstick.  I'm not sure how good that came out, I'll let you all tell me.
      The sword blade was the least successful part.  It just didn't want to cooperate, which is due in part to the softer details on the casting.
      I hope you like her as much as I do.  C&C Welcome.

      Now that my Bones 4 order is here, my backwards brain decided it's finally time to paint the fire dragon I've had in my box of shame for a year and a half! I don't think I can claim that I'm "new to painting" anymore, but this is my first dragon and by far the biggest mini I've attempted thus far. In order to actually paint more things I like instead of saving them until I've practiced or become good enough to attempt them, I'm trying to adopt the mentality of trying at least one new technique with every mini I paint. Hopefully this will get me out of my comfort zone and into some new styles and skills. 
       
      The focus of this guy is going to be blending, both wet and feathering. I'm still getting used to the process of documenting my WIPs, so if anybody has suggestions or requests (pics of my working palette, color recipes, what have you) please let me know. Lots of pics beyond the spoiler!

      This Bones figure was the demonstration model in my 2-hour "Good Fast Painting" class at ReaperCon 2017.  I got her about 2/3 done in the class.
      She stood half-painted on my shelf for a year and a half. 
      This past Sunday, I just needed to paint something, and this was it.  An hour later, I was ready to call her done. 
      As always, I spent a lot more time per square millimeter on the face & eyes.
      Enjoy!
