Here's a speed-painted sci-fi companion to the red goblins. He's not quite finished, but he - and his pallid companion - were very quick to do (recipe here).

Nice work indeed! The pale fella looks like a sci-fi vampire spawn, no question.

Lovely orcs, great to see them in something else than green!

Nice!  The white Orc looks rather creepy.

Thanks! I pinched the look from someone else (shoebox?) who had painted some orks in the style of Mad Max: Fury Road.

Here's another Great Scaly Orc. Gallingly, I dropped the chieftain after the group shot, slightly flattening his face. But I've added some extra highlights and lining, and I don't think it'll be noticed.

Thanks! I cheerfully plagiarised the three points of light from Ana/Blasphemia, who did an amazing newt here.

Did somebody say newts? Those are a blast from the past. Well done!  :-*

Glad you all like 'em! Here's another shot:

I've been trying to sort out the various boxes of miniatures and bits lying around. I realised yesterday that although I'd only a few unassembled Frostgrave gnolls kicking around, I'd only painted one up as an actual gnoll; the others have become mutants and ghouls and so on.

I was a little disatisfied with the previous gnoll, who I'd painted like a striped hyena. With some old Rieder gnolls I've been painting, I've just followed the Monster Manual rather than real hyena markings - so gray-green with yellowy or reddish mane.

I'm pretty sure that the MM description is just a Gygaxian attempt to describe hyena colouring, but it makes for a simpler template and makes them more distinctive (their forms don't get broken up by the spots or stripes on the table!).

So here's a little warband of three Frostgrave gnolls and a Reaper matriarch to lead them:

They look very decent. I've got a very similar line up ready to be primed, including the Reaper one, which you've made a very nice job of.

I'm stealing that eye effect with some black-eye nasties I have lined up. I hope it works though, because their eyes are a lot smaller.
