Gnolls (fantasy monster conversions)

Posted by 1Mac on 09 Oct 2014, 06:18

In D&D and other fantasy games, gnolls are wild, hyena-beastmen with a penchant for demonism and feral savagery. Finding gnolls in 1/72 scale is tough, so I'm making my own for my 1/72 fantasy project. Here's what I have so far:

Alliance elves with headswaps and tails from some board game pieces. The gray bodies are Arcane Legions figures. I'll have to fill in some gaps and sculpt some mane after I do all the conversions I want to do, but it seems like a promising start.

More at the blog, along with tips for an alternative source of 1/72 scale gnolls.

Cool idea, but what is really good is your blog! Great comparisons, but poor Sven got to work a lot.

Progress painting the gnolls. Very rough right now, but you get a sense of what they'll look like. They looked almost cute unpainted, but they seem much more vicious now.

A little more progress painting. Mostly detail work remains.

I also finished the command figures.
