Starting yet another Guild Ball mini:-

 

2UeHN3D.jpg

 

Compound, a player for both the Engineer and Alchemist Guilds. He was pretty easy to assemble considering he came in a lot of pieces for a metal mini (body, apron, both arms, head and four canisters for the engine on his back.

 

Since it involved drybrushing, I started on his mechanical arms:-

So far I've finished the wooden (Parasite Brown > Brown Wash > Parasite Brown drybrush > Ochre Yellow drybrush > Sepia Wash) and material (Scarlett Red > 1:2 Scarlett Red/Pale Yellow > Brown Wash) parts. The bronze metal parts are a base of Bronze with a Brown Wash so far and the steel parts are yet to be done.

Thanks everyone!

I kinda wish they weren't so tempting, got a lot of other minis that need painting too!

 

Progress:-

Finished off the bronze bits of his arms with layers of Bronze and 1:1 Bronze/Aluminium, and then painted the steel bits (Oily Steel > Black Wash > Oily Steel).

 

Next up, skin.

Thanks!

It helps that whoever sculpts the Guild Ball range is really good at wood-grain.

Been fighting with his skin.

 

Started with a base of 1:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin, gave it a coat of Flesh Wash, and then did highlights of 1:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin, 1:1:1 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin/Light Flesh and 1:1:2 Dwarf Skin/Rosy Skin/Light Flesh. Then I kept going backwards and forwards between the layers trying to blend things and emphasise other bits etc.

In the end I just called it a day, I can normally pull off a decent, basic skintones but I guess fat men are my weakness.

Painted everything from the neck up.

The mask is a base of Blood Red, given a Brown Wash, highlighted with a layer of Blood Red and a layer of 1:1:1 Blood Red/Red Orange/Carnage Red (my bottle of Blood Red died part way through the painting session and Carnage Red was the closest match I had) and then a Carnage Red glaze.

The stitches are Cork Brown, the metal parts are Bronze, the eye lenses are 1:1 Dark Green/Pure Black with 1:1 Dark Green/Off-white highlights (I was aiming for a gem effect but the area was just too dang small), and the pipes of goo are 1:4 Off-white/Green Fluo (the camera has bleached these out quite a bit, they look pretty radioactive in hand).

 

Start on his engine next.

 

Hmm... Is it me, or have I given him an angry chicken head?

And more mysterious green goo!

 

Painted up his engine (Oily Steel > Black Wash > Oily Steel > Aluminium), straps (Leather Brown > 1:1 Leather Brown/Cork Brown) and handle plus buckles (Bronze), then gave everything a Brown Wash.

Then I painted his big vials of goo 1:4 Off-white/Green Fluo with Off-white highlights and Brassy Brass knobs.

 

That Green Fluo paint doesn't work too great on larger areas, it has the twin problems of needing a ton of coats to get a solid base plus it dries pretty lumpy, I think I'll just use it for tubes and little lights from now on.

Had a bit of a happy accident painting his apron.

Started normally with a base coat of Iraqi Sand followed by highlights of 1:2 Iraqi Sand/Off-white and pure Off-white, then I was going to blend it together with a coat of Sepia Wash, but it went on really thick and streaky (I'm pretty sure this is the only bottle of Sepia Wash I've brought, so it's probably getting rather old by this point).

Got a wet brush and tried to scrub as much of the Sepia off as possible, but it didn't really work, so I was planning on letting it dry and then repainting it. But once it dried, I realised it worked quite well as a manky, stained old apron, so I kept it as is.

Next, he got trousers.

Started with a base of Dark Green, shaded with 1:1 Dark Green/Scarlett Red and highlighted with 1:1 Dark Green/Ochre Yellow, before it all got a glaze of thinned dark green.

Finally, I based his belt, straps and boots in Leather Brown, highlighted with 1:1 Leather Brown/Iraqi Sand and shaded with Brown Wash.

      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 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.

      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.

      Kinda wish he'd been a bit furrier as all the armour plates came out a bit bland.

      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!
