Wonderful shading on this - his robe, his stachel, the barrell - he's vivid, yet worn looking!

Thanks! Well they do say that Trappist Monks brew the best beer in the world.

Thanks. This was an experiment in using Folk Art "Tile and Glass medium" to thin paints, and I must say it worked quite well.

      Good Friday everyone. Here is 03492, Autumn Bronzeleaf Elf Wizard Sculpted by Jeff Grace. She's certainly one of the most challenging model I ever paint. The level of detail on this mini is just insane. Enjoy and have a great weekend.

      There is going to be a firework tonight... Firecrackers in Lorus's way. Here is 02771, Lorus Hightower aka Firecracker. This model was sculpted by Sandra Garrity.

      Tre manor is at it again...   
      Another well-designed warband.    
       
      Unfortunately, one of the minis is a bit... not-PG. So no pictures.

      Hi everyone, here is a group picture of my Bugbear raiding party. I painted most of them last year and mounted them on 40mm diameter base last week. These are all Reaper Miniatures models; 77233 Kegg the Bugbear Hunter, 02603, Skrug the Bugbear Shaman, 77015 Bugbear Warrior, 77232 Mogg the Bugbear Warrior and 77231 Rugg the Bugbear Leader. They were all sculpted by Tre Manor, except for Skrug the Bugbear Shaman that was Sculpted by Ben Siens. I used Reaper's MSP acrylic paint.

      Hi everyone, I recently had the pleasure of realizing that I inadvertently bought the same Gnoll model twice. So, I decided to convert two of them to create a little variety in my hunting party. Read the text under each picture to have more detail. This post was purposely written as a guide for any who would like to try their hands at converting Reaper Bones model or any other models.
       
       
      I used two 77236 Bloodmane the Gnoll Warrior sculpted by Tre Manor, 77235 Toghra the Gnoll Leader sculpted by Jason Wiebe and 14056 Weapon Pack 1 sculpted by Tim Kaufman.
       

       
       
      I first separated the dagger handle from the body. Just a simple notch did the trick.
       

       
       
      I then cut the trunk along the belt.
       

       
       
      Again, on the other side of the model, I cut the body following the belt as a guide.
       

       
       
      I have this hollow feeling in my stomach...
       

       
       
      Same thing for Toghra, cut the body along the belt line.
       

       
       
      I drilled a hole in Toghra’s lower section and cut a small nail to pin the two parts together.
       

       
       
      I drilled a hole in Bloodmane’s upper body section and tested the pin in.
       

       
       
      I glued the pin in the leg part. I’m using Gorilla Super Glue.
       

       
       
      I then removed the handaxe cutting the handle just above the fist. I keep it for later use.
       

       
       
      The tricky part is to drill a hole in straight line through the fist. I had to use a small drill bit, smaller than the new weapon handle not to tear the plastic.
       

       
       
      I used a slightly bigger drill bit to get the hole a little larger.
       

       
       
      After cleaning the mold line on the new weapon, I cut the handle in halves in order to keep the pommel intact.
       

       
       
      I had to use a file to reduce the diameter of the handle.
       

       
       
      Also, I removed two spikes from the shield to alter its aspect from the one the other Gnoll Worrior is wearing.
       

       
       
      Finally, I’m using a piece of wooden stick to adjust the posture of the model on its base.
       

       
       
      I often use this simple trick to level my models. I use super glue to fix the parts together.
       

       
       
      I’m using 40mm round base for the Gnoll. These models are large and even if there in game space size is 25mm, I personally prefer larger base to have more room for decoration.
       

       
       
      That’s it, I’ll need to fill the gap above the belt and along the shoulder.
       

       
       
      I’ll also be using Greenstuff to fill the gap and complete the base before cleaning everything with soft soap and water prior to painting.
       

       
       
      I added some notches on the cutting edge of the original Gnoll’s plastic axe. I’ll be using it as a battlefield wreck weapon to decorate the base.
