77235: Toghra, Gnoll Leader

Recommended Posts

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.

      I was inspired by limey72  work doing NMM Gold on the enlarged Dwarf over in Works in Progress. I wanted to do a brass like robot or construct, so I pulled out this Golem. I also wanted to try some AK weather effect acrylic pencils I have had for a time. I think it ended with too much brown and ended up wood looking. But it has grown on me, so I will finish up his base and call it done. Hope you like it.

      My exchange partner this time around was @Corporea.  She was one of those troublesome ones that are fine with anything.  This of course means that I am free to do anything, so what I did was use her as an excuse to test out airbrushing my Vallejo Air Metallics.  Because of that this mini is a little more metallic than I might have otherwise done.  The aluminum didn't want to airbrush, or hand brush for that matter, so I may have a bad bottle.  Other than that they all worked as expected. I.e. you can create a TMM effect by combining these paints with a regular paint for the shadows.
       
      I also tried my hand at a mosaic tile base.  The area I started with isn't as good as the rest of the base, but seeing as I am already late I didn't go back and take even more time to repaint that area.  Overall I thought it turned out pretty well, though I don't believe I'll be doing it on cork again. While I thought the imperfections in the surface could work as missing tiles, in practice they just ended up being in inconvenient places.

       
      But unfortunately I had to stick a mini on it.
       

       

       
      Full frontal metal shiny.
       

       
      And rotating around for those that want to look.
       
       
      I also attempted to create the look of texture by applying leather colors in a series of parallel lines.  I kind of liked it but at the same time I'm not sure that it comes across as any particular type of texture.
       

       
      And that's it for my 2019 exchange.  Next year I might even try to be on time.

      I’m working on trying to get this big guy painted to tabletop standard by the time I have to use him at our next Pathfinder D&D session to represent the Roc King on Tilagos Island in the Demiplane of Last Resort, in the Age of Worms adventure path.

      Painted up these 8 unrelated barbarians as a clan for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Tried my hand at non-metallic metal again. This is the result. :)
