This past week I painted two of the Gnoll Warriors from the Bones II 24 Bonus Figures set.
I prepped these figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. I then glued the figures to black-primed 1.5" fender washers with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figures to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer's glue under each washer.
Lastly, I used some white glue to glue a little sand to the bases. When this was dry, I painted it all Black. When the Black was dry, I drybrushed it, and the Gnolls' bases, with Americana "Neutral Grey", and then some Folk Art "Platinum Grey". I let the figures dry overnight and the next day I gave them a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed them with Testor's Dullcote".
