It has taken almost a full month, but the Gnoll warband has been finished.
The undercoat \ basecoat was applied to the models on March 31st. Since then work on them has been somewhat sporadic, but the Easter break has allowed me some time to really get my teeth into the final few models and get them finished.
I approached the task by dividing the figures into smaller groups – 2 groups of six models each, followed by a group of eight. Then the seven metal character models and finally the two hyenas. The basing on all the figures was left until the end and all done together.

Gnoll Sergeants (They are characterised by wielding two-handed weapons)
Gnoll Warriors with hand weapons
The warband has 29 models in total, so should be quite flexible for most of my needs – the character models with perhaps a couple of rank and file models would make a great group for Thud and Blunder.
The models in both metal and plastic have actually been a joy to paint and are packed with character and detail. I must admit to being very pleased with how these came out.
However, I think that it is probably time to paint something that isn’t 40-odd shades of brown!
