This past week I worked on another Gnoll Warrior, this one by sculptor Bobby Jackson. (The earlier Gnoll Warriors I painted are by Tre Manor). I'm not sure where I picked this fellow up, or if he was ever part of a Kickstarter as I couldn't find him shown anywhere. He is not a good match for the others stylistically, but I figure he can join the pack as a hero, where his visual difference makes him stand out; or as a rank and file fighter hidden in the back of the wide-angle panning battle shots. :)
I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying it. I then glued the figure to a black-primed 1.25" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figure to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer's glue.
I then turned to the metallics; highlighting the axe, loincloth plates, shield rim and hub, and the dagger with Ceramcoat "Metallic Silver". Next, I highlighted the parts I had painted with the "Bronze", using Ceramcoat "14K Gold".
When I was done painting the figure, I used some white glue to glue a little sand to the base. When this was dry, I painted the sand and the figure's own base with Black. When the Black was dry, I drybrushed the bases with some Apple Barrel "Rock Grey", and then some Folk Art "Platinum Grey".
I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave him a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor's Dullcote".
In other news, my Bones 3 box is scheduled to arrive on Wednesday! So I think I will post some photos here on Thursday for those interested in seeing what I got. And If I'm feeling really ambitious I will try to make an unboxing video since they seem to be popular these days. :)
