See what I did there, gentle readers? OK, we said it was the site of gaming goodness, not punning greatness. Just wanted to show you my Guild Ball team so you can judge and criticize as you see fit. They are work-in-progress at the minute so give me a break. The ones with the grassy bases have been almost finished, I’m still not sure if I want to give them muddy boots and bloody weapons. Let me know what you think.
These are the first minis I’ve painted in a while. If you want to know more about my thoughts on painting, then just have a look here if you haven’t already.
It’s funny how you don’t quite know how a mini is going to turn out until you base it. At first I thought the red was a little to orangey but when I saw it against the green grass of the base it looked ok.
It’s the little things that bring minis to life. The colour of the stitching, goggles and other little details help a model to stand out from the others painted with a similar colour scheme.
I’m loving that Guild Ball is played with characters rather than generic team bods. It really means that each one is fun to paint as it’s different to all the others.
To finish off, I’ll put up a picture of the players I’ve finished. Can’t wait to get them finished and start on my Alchemist team. I’ll keep you updated as I go.
Please leave any advice, criticism and praise (mostly praise) in the comments. What are you painting at the mo? What are your top tips? Do you have an issue doing the skirting boards? The best comment will win an exclusive painting lesson with yours truly (teach me how to paint…please).
Until next time gentle readers.
