Still taking a little break from my other projects, so I'm currently painting random Guild Ball minis, the latest being Farris, ex-knight and master blacksmith:-




Hopefully I got all the mold-lines, I did spot the one on her collar after taking these piccys.




Got her head painted.

Her face is a base of 1:1 Beastly Brown/Dwarf Skin, Brown Shade Wash and then highlights of 1:1 Beastly Brown/Dwarf Skin and 1:1:1 Beastly Brown/Dwarf Skin/Light Skin.

And her hair is Leather Brown, shaded with Brown Wash and highlighted with 2:1 Leather Brown/Bonewhite.


Next job will likely be painting the underside of her horse (he has a name but I've forgotten it) black. I meant to do that first, but forgot ::(:

Thanks guys!



Bit stuck on other things, so this one has returned from The Cupboard Of ShameTM:-




Been working on both Farris's and Judgements (I've remembered the horses name) armour.

The steel parts are Oily Steel > Black Wash > Oily Steel > Aluminium > thinned Black Wash, the brass bits are just Brassy Brass and a Brown Wash so far, and there's also some Blacksmith Guild symbols in Artic Blue > Black Wash > Artic Blue.


Not particularly looking forward to painting more of Farris herself, not only is a lot of her difficult to reach but a lot of the detail has kinda blended together.

These PVC minis look so nice, until you try and paint them.

Thanks everybody!

Despite my complaining it is a nice mini.



Finished up the brass bits with layers of Brassy Brass and Polished Gold, unfortunately Farris doesn't look any different so rather than have a piccy-less update here's the bits of Blacksmith terrain I've been doing at the same time:-

Got Farris finished so I can concentrate on Judgement:-




And then I ruin it with poor photography (I think my hand was in the way of the lamp).


Gave her a shirt (Iraqi Sand > 1:2 Iraqi Sand/Off-white > Sepia Wash), trousers (Steel Grey > Brown Wash > Steel Grey > 1:1 Steel Grey/Wolf Grey), dark leather bits (1:1 Leather Brown/Scarlett Red > Brown Wash > 1:1 Leather Brown/Scarlett Red > 1:1:1 Leather Brown/Scarlett Red/Cork Brown) and light leather bits (Cork Brown > Brown Wash > Cork Brown > 1:1 Cork Brown/Bonewhite).

Bit more done:-




Started painting the horse.

The tail and mane are 1:1 Stone Grey/Wolf Grey > Wolf Grey > Grey Wash, unfortunately the Grey Wash dries to exactly the same colour as the basecoat, so I'm going to need to throw a darker wash over it.

The rest of the horse is just 1:1 Wolf Grey/Off-white at the moment.


I also found quite a few moldlines on the horses legs ::(: but at this stage I'm just going to leave them be.

Gave the tail and mane a Dark Grey (2:1 Grey/Black) Wash, and finished off the horses fur(?) with highlights of 1:1 Wolf Grey/Off-white, 1:3 Wolf Grey/Off-white and Off-white with two brushtipfuls of the previous layer, finally I gave it a thinned coat of Grey Wash.


Then I painted the horses dress. It's based with Blood Red (so many layers...), shaded with Scarlett Red mixed with a brushtipful of Pure Black, highlighted with 1:1 Blood Red/Pale Yellow and glazed with thinned Blood Red.

The trim and Guild symbol is based in Magic Blue, shaded with 1:1 Night Blue/Magic Blue and highlighted with 1:2:1 Magic Blue/Andrea Blue/Sky Blue.

I then knocked the highlight back a bit with thinned Magic Blue, darkened the Guild symbol with some Black Wash and edged the trim with it too.


Just all the straps left.

Painted up the straps (1:1 Leather Brown/Scarlett Red > Brown Wash > 1:1:1 Leather Brown/Scarlett Red/Iraqi Sand > glaze of thinned 1:1 Leather Brown/Scarlett Red) with Bronze buckles.


Now waiting for the varnish to dry so I can do the base.

      Presenting Calculus, she's an alchemist from the Alchemy Guild wielding some sort of alchemy flute, she was made by Steamforged Games as part of their discontinued Guild Ball range.
      Not too happy with this one. Her face and hair came out okay, but it went downhill from there, couldn't even do a decent job taking piccys.

      Presenting the Gladiator, part of the Echoes Of Death series from Kingdom Death.
      Another one rescued from the Cupboard Of Unfinished Things. My Kingdom Death minis always turn out fairly hit or miss, and I think this one falls a bit on the miss side, but I like the job I did on her shield.
      Just wish they'd stop with the dramatic dust clouds, can never figure out how to paint them!

      Presenting Sakana (Not sure if this is the regular or veteran version), a member of the Fisherman team from the, now defunct, game Guild Ball by Steamforged Games.
      This guy was one of those weird Guild Ball minis where I'm not quite sure what's going on with their outfit, I still can't figure out if he's wearing a roll-neck vest or just has a odd neck and, now looking at it in piccy form, I'm pretty sure the top half of his trousers aren't actually trousers.
      He still came out okay though.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Presenting the veteran version of Minx, a character in the sadly now defunct game of Guild Ball by Steamforged Games.
      She's being sitting in the 'Cupboard Of Unfinished Things' for a couple of years now, so it feels good to finally get her finished.
      As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Finished this just before christmas.  I'm rather happy with the way it came out.  The blending is probably the best I've ever done, and I used true metallic shading on all the armor.


      I hope my Secret Sophie partner enjoys it as well.
