So while I was working through my Warmachine backlog, a little game called Guildball caught my eye. I waffled a bit on teams but decided for now that masons were my team, so I'll be painting them up here, hopefully quickly so I can play the game.

Really nice, the more I hear about/see this game's minis the more I want to try it out ><

I was slowly drawn in by some of the minis, but the style of game is what caught my attention. It took a while for a full team to catch my attention enough to decide to buy in.As for the minis  The newest ones in metal are particularly good. You'll likely notice a difference in detail and clarity between these and Chisel or Granite, the newer two models.

Looking good.

 

Want to do the eyes? Take a toothpick, and place a small black or brown dot in the white.

Pupils!!!

 

I like them!

Thank you for the tip! I actually usually use a fine point marker like an 005 Sakura pen for the eyes, it's my last step so it won't show up until the mini is done since the ink will run if it gets wet and isn't sealed. I'll have to take another angle on harmony, her eyes do look a bit odd at that angle,and I added a wash to her base to clean it up.

Thanks Xherman! Mallet done, Chisel is up and Wrecker is on deck, though chisel is... already half done because I started painting same colors across multiple figures. Like her pants, vest and orange accents are pretty much ready.IMG_0716.thumb.JPG.9520a2467e22b3668bd70898c4d34251.JPG

Wrecker looks awesome!

I could see a unit of them in my Lost World armies!

 

Well painted!

I found the thread! It was hiding from me. <_<

 

As I said on Monday, they look great. I really like how you painted the outside of the bases as stone instead of leaving them plain black.

      Presenting Veteran Chisel, a player for the Masons Guild in the game of Guild Ball. 
      This is one of the many Guild Ball characters I don't know much about, although it's surprising she got a veteran version without popping up in any big story lines.
       
      Had a few issues with this one (even after painting them I still can't figure out her boots) plus she's yet another Guild Ball mini missing a few fingers.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Presenting Veteran Spigot, a player for the Brewers Guild in the game Guild Ball.
      This mini represents the mid-point of his character arc, where he has realised how much damage the Brewers Guild drinking culture is doing to him and, with a little help from his friends, manages to get off the sauce.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, not only is it a really nice mini, it's covered in those fat stitches I love painting.

      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.
