The Old Fathers Harvest WIP

Recommended Posts

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.

Thanks!

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

 

Progress:-

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.

 

 

Progress:-

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 Hemlocke, she's part of the Morticians Guild from the game Guild Ball by Steamforged Games. Originally part of the Union, she managed to escape it's destruction and, being what passes for a magic user in the Guild Ball world, found a home with the spirit summoners of the Morticians.
       
      Overall I'm happy with this one, but she is a bit rough in places, painting that snake was a big pain in the bum!

      Presenting Harriet the Hat, she represents the veteran version of Harry the Hat and is part of the Engineers Guild in the now defunct game Guild Ball by Steamforged Games. She was originally a down on her luck student, before encountering a certain cursed piece of headgear, now people say she's like a completely different person.
       
      I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out, even though she doesn't photograph too well.

      Presenting Hooper (the guy) and Quaff (the dog), members of the Brewers Guild faction in the (now, sadly defunct) game Guild Ball from Steamforged Games. Don't know much about this pair, except that Quaff is a good boy (like all doggies).
       
      I'm not normally much of an animal painter, but I had fun working on Quaff (probably because of how quick and easy it was). Hooper had a few casting issues, but I think he turned out okay in the end.
