      Every so often, a model catches my attention. Sometimes because it is excellent and inspiring, sometimes because there is something off about it. Sometimes the model is both.  Here is one such example:

      Yeah, it is the angle of the buckler thats just wrong. It simply should not happen. It triggers my OCD.
      This is the "Gnoll Warrior" from the "Thank You pack" add-on in the second Bones kickstarter. During the kickstarter it was presented as a line concept drawing and as is usually the case, the resulting miniature ends up slightly different. Still a perfectly good representation of the original concept art, but anyhow.
      That said, I do understand that one-piece castability requires certain angles and alignments for the mould to work, and to get the detail in the shield to show it cannot be sideways in the mould. There have been plenty of examples of minis in strange poses and/or holding things at strange angles because of this.
      This Gnoll is also stylistically rather different from the other Gnolls Reaper makes in Bones, perhaps it's just not so comic-like?
      But I ramble.
      The other day as I yet again was perusing the Drawers of Doom™, I picked this one for the painting table. But first it got to meet Mr. Scalpel for a field amputation followed by a quick rotation and graft:
      One drop of superglue later the case of the misaligned buckler was solved.
      Add a base and some paint:

      Good thing classic Bones material is really easy to slice and reposition. Such an excellent material for convertions as well.
       
       
       

      Jagged white parallells of sharp fangs emerged into the campfire light, then a staring yellow eye. Inquisitive, roughly probing clawed fingers followed. Snorting, foul breath enveloped me, causing me to gag.
      It jerked its beast-like head back, loud barks of mocking laughter spraying spittle in my face as I tried to stand my ground.
         "I smell fright, little man", the gnoll rasped out at last. "Why's that parlay-totem here?"
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      Hi everyone, Here's the Big "Slim" Boss of my Gnoll hunting party. 02704, Lord of the Gnolls was sculpted by Ben Siens.
      It's a tall metal model that stands 65mm / 2.5 inches at the top of its head. I painted it with Reaper's MSP acrylics.

      In a massive bag of random Bones minis I acquired, I found four of the same type of gnoll warrior. I've decided to take three of them and paint them different quality levels - a speedpaint, my average tabletop level, and the last one, the most detailed - to see the difference in the type of efforts I put into things.
       
      They've all been cleaned and based. Different basing as well, with the last one being a gnoll on a grassy knoll. A knoll gnoll! >>

       
      And the speedpainted one, I'm not priming or gap filling.  But the other two I am. I generally like to prime things no matter the material for three reasons -
       
      - Habit/preference.
      - To see the details better because the stark white makes it hard to see definition.
      - And lastly, because it helps me see how I failed to clean off mold lines as well as I thought I did and take care of it appropriately.

       
      Will get into the nitty gritty of it all tomorrow because tonight is D&D night!
