I'll be using these as one of the groups of "treasure guarders" in next years Historicon game and they'll see a lot of duty on the table for Frostgrave
I find painting fantasy themed figures a bit liberating from historicals.
You can also do silly things like make one of the Gnoll's a Champion from Dalmatian stock. The spots were a last minute thought but I kind of like them.
This "Dire Dalmatian" will prove to be a tough nut to crack in the game (that's a spoiler). Cruella DeVille be damned!
Lets see there are 28 figures so that adds 140 points to the tally.
This will likely be my last submission until after Christmas. There might be one of two on boxing day.
Merry Christmas to all of you and your families - I hope you all have a wonderful day however you choose to celebrate it.
Great work Miles, but you need to give us some better close-ups so we can see these chaps.
As you wish, Mr C, more close ups but they show had bad a painter I am - remember I prefer to use Stalin's definition of quality in terms of painting...
The Gnoll Chieftain and his loyal hound
A Gnoll barbarian and Shaman - I think I'll use the Shaman in a medic role for the game - a sip from the blood cup and your fixed up,
General purpose plastics
A plastic on the left and a metal on the right - Dohhh! I forgot to paint the eye patch!
Good man Miles! These Gnolls/Dalmatians ('Gnollmations'?) are awesome. I remember encountering them in our AD&D games when I was a teen and being really creeped-out by how they were portrayed in the artwork - these guys look very similar. That grey one, which is stooped over with the staff, is particularly excellent.
Hmm, 28 figures... Now, you just need 73 more Gnollmations to make it 101, then they can curb-stomp Ms. DeVille in style. ;)
