I know I haven't finished my Hunters Guild set yet, but after prepping my Farmers just to see what the Guild Ball plastic is like, I really wanted to paint them!





I've got six farmers and two bits of terrain, I'm starting with the terrain:-




The pig doesn't have a name so I shall call him 'Stinky'.


The wood posts are a base of Parasite Brown, given drybrushes of Ochre Yellow and Iraqi Sand and a Brown Wash, and the Guild symbol is Bronze with Polished Gold highlights.

The metal brackets are Oily Steel with a Black Wash at the moment, they still need highlighting.

The pig (and Buckwheat the Donkey) was the main reason I got the set.






Painting his bathtub.

I'm trying to achieve that dull metallic look that animal troughs and things have (it probably has a proper name but I'm not sure what it is), I started with a base of 1:1 Oily Steel/Steel Grey gave it a Brown Wash and then stippled the basecoat and a 1:1:1 mix of Oily Steel/Steel Grey/Wolf Grey all over it. It actually looks pretty close to what I wanted.


Finished it off with another Guild symbol and now I've just got the contents of the tub to do.

The bubbles in the tub could be an ominous portent. VERY COOL MINIS!


He's nervous because people keep kicking footballs at him.







I did the contents of the tub in Leather Brown, the bubbles are 1:1 Leather Brown/Off-white and the footballs are Cork Brown, everything got a Brown Wash and then the bubbles and football got their basecoats reapplied. Finally the liquid parts got a good coat of Gloss Varnish.


Started on Stinky, he's got a basecoat of 2:1 Old West Rose/Rosy Flesh and a Flesh Wash so far.

And finished!




His skin got highlights of 2:1 Old West Rose/Rosy Flesh and 2:2:1 Old West Rose/Rosy Flesh/Light Flesh.

He then got 1:1 Ochre Yellow/Iraqi Sand trotters and a Red Orange carrot to chew on.


Not sure what to paint next from the set.

So far I've narrowed it down to the other terrain piece, Buckwheat, Millstone or The Ploughman.

Needed to work on something simple, so terrain:-




Painted the dirt (Leather Brown > Cork Brown Drybrush > Iraqi Sand Drybrush > Brown Wash).




And started on the stone (Stone Grey > Black Wash).

I now have sacks of grain.


I'm also finding a lot of mold lines I missed.

Isn't that just the worst?

      Presenting Veteran Gutter from the game Guild Ball, a damaged young woman who used her trauma to transform into a rage-fuelled murder machine. Originally part of the Union team (haven't painted this version yet), this veteran version marks her move to the Butchers Guild team.
      As I said in her WIP thread, this mini had rather sever moldline and excess flash issues (she's a one piece mini and the areas between her arms, sides and chain were pretty much filled in) which has left the details in a few areas in a bit of a mess, despite that I think she turned out okay.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Presenting Veteran Decimate, a minor noblewoman turned sword for hire, who was originally a member of Guild Balls mercenary Union team (I haven't painted this version yet), however plot related shenanigans caused her to move to the Brewers Guild team resulting in this new 'Veteran' version.
      Really happy with this one, there's a few things I could do better (her bracers, straps and glove blend together too much), but I think overall it turned out pretty good.

      Yep, more Guild Ball stuff and a whole set this time.
      See, normally I choose which Guild Ball mini to paint by pulling a random character card out of the box I keep them in (I wish more companies still did character cards, makes it so much easier to add randomisation into the mini choosing process), but these girls didn't come with any, so rather than pack them away and potentially forget they exist, I thought I'd get them done now.
      Plus these are the Veteran versions of the characters, so it'll help having all the colour choices in one place for when it comes to painting their standard versions.
      Presenting the Exiles:-

      These are all characters who originally played for different Guild Ball teams (mostly the mercenary Union team) but for fluff reasons have moved on.
      We've got:-

      Hemlocke (ditzy hedge witch now learning the art of Spiritmancy) and Harriet the Hat (down on her luck engineering student possessed by a magic, and possibly evil, hat).

      Decimate (minor league noblewoman turned formidable sword for hire) and Minx (completely feral forest person).

      Gutter (formally a Stockholm Syndrome suffering princess turned rage-fuelled murder machine) and Honour (badly injured Masons team captain, now Farmers team coach and occasional goalkeeper, with assistance dog).
      Made a small start to Decimate today:-

      Couldn't figure out if she had a shirt on under her vest, decided she looked better without one, just a base of 1:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin and a Flesh Wash so far.
