Okay, back on the Fantasy side of things now, painting minis for Guild Ball.

As far as I read it's less like Blood Bowl (despite being similar in theme) and more like Malifaux/Warmahordes with a ball.

I'm working on a Butcher's Guild team and a Mortician's Guild team, starting with the Butcher's. (I have no idea what's going on with these apostrophes, but the designers write it like that, so I assume the guilds were the idea of some butcher/mortician each of whom now runs their own guild rather than having a guild of butchers/etc.).

Here's the test mini, the Butchers (I'll just refer to them as 'butchers' and 'morticians' from now on if that's okay):



Hope you like the guy. There's 7 models to each team (including mascots).

looking good @Sigur.

I've just bought the Butchers starter set so I'll be using this for inspiration when I get round to painting them :biggrin:

@Relise: :D Thanks for the comment! Have fun!



Here's a random WIP Space Marines special character:



...and here are some WIP test figures for the Morticians:



...aaaand there's another thing I probably shouldn't say (I probably shouldn't say anything but positive marketing drone crap), but I may have messed up on the colour scheme there. :D The order was "make 'em grey and purple". I also wanted to make them dark to fit their guild and to contrast the brighter Butchers. Between the grey clothes, the grey NMM metal, the black and the dark/dull purple I'm not sure if they aren't a little boring to look at. I'm pretty sure I'll stick to the colour scheme for the most part, but maybe tweak it a little by adding green bits. I really like those stripey things over the eyes as seen on the dude with the mask. Maybe that's a thing I'll carry through the whole team. Maybe i'll make it green when it's on purple masks or black or purple when it's painted on faces. What do you think?

@Asmodai: Thanks very much. :)


Guildball Butchers!



Only lacking the mascot now. Hope you like them. :)


A little off-topic, but the past day I've been doing some BloodBowl minis for another customer:



Very different style, but also fantasy football stuff, so maybe some of you will like them. :)

Okay, on to the next team -the Brewers Guild:



Boy, these take quite a bit longer than anticipated. Not only due to the tartan pattern. But I'm getting ahead pretty alright.

Right, last Friday I got another Fishermen figure (season 2, just like the imposing lady in the Brewers Guild team). Quickly finished him. He's a captain and he's called Corsair:

Right, time for some results. Here's the finished Brewers Guild team:













...and with white background:












Hope you like them! :)


There's yet more to some as I've got a full Alchemists Guild team to do and a newly released addition to the Butchers team.
