  1. Hello there! I've been a long time lurker on this wonderful site and I'm not afraid to say I've stolen a fair few ideas from the lovely models on display. I hope I can share with you the work I've been doing for a very good friend of mine. As it stands I don't play Guild Ball myself but I feel I'll be sucked into this game really quite quickly the more I'm exposed to these miniatures. First up I have an Alchemists team that have had a few tweaks with a little sculpting. I have a few pics of them close up and in the green stuff stage if anyone would like to see a bit more.
  2. KDOG gives it a go

    Hi all, Not really done much like this before but have discovered the joys of tabletop and painting recently. Figured i am such a slow painter that if I put pics etc up and took advice and so on I might get more motivated to paint more often (my GB mates would appreciate it). Apologies in advance for the quality of pictures etc, as I said this is all new ground for me. So you all know the aim is for a not quite so bloodlike red (more of a grimey red) and thinking a dirty gray as second colour. Figures I am working on are, Ox, Princess, Brisket, Boiler, Boar, Shank, and now Gutter and Minx. I may be slow with the uploads at times (due to kids and life etc) but will try to keep it regular.
  3. Dark Souls Painting Blog

    Hi all, my group's been enjoying slowly getting in to Dark Souls (been butchered by the Gargoyle once, had it down to 2 health and poisoned the second time), and I've started painting our set, so I thought I'd show off here, starting with some classic Hollow(s?), with a few more notes on my blog
  4. Painting Tutorials

    I am adding painting tutorials for the core box miniatures on my channel - I hope it is helpful. Comments and questions are welcome.
  5. Studio Jolly Roger workshop

    Hello, im starting new, collective topic of our work, enjoy Alchemist are getting popular. More: http://studiojollyroger.com/guild-ball-alchemist-team/ [/IMG] Check our blog and gallery! Get your army painted with us. Ask us a question.
  6. So I have been working on the boss models first, as they are the most visually impressive. I am pretty happy with all of these so far. The dancer and Titanite demon are going to get some airbrushed sections so I am tackling them last. Where I need advice is on the bases. I can't decide if I should do a solid color, a free hand painted design, or a full sculpted decorative base. The zone lines need to fit in to any style I go with, and they need to be easily visible while playing. I am open to suggestions and examples.
  7. Best Images for Painters

    Hope these images will help your painting, sorry if I screwed up somewhere.* Core Set Solaire of Astora Player Character Expansion Core Game Expansion Iron Keep Expansion Armour Set Expansion Invaders and Summons Expansions** Add-Ons Mega Boss Expansions Darkroot Basin Expansion Retailer Bonuses *Sorry certain images suck, I tried my best but these are the greatest I could find. If you want to use your game and get better pictures, that would be much appreciated. **Taken from the Kickstarter page as it was really hard to find images of certain characters. I also couldn't find normal and "glowing" versions of each character.
  8. Painted Heros

    In preparation for my friends coming over for our first game I got the heroes painted up. I decided to theme them in colors like you would for players in other game (green, blue, red, black). Below is how they turned out. Anyone else do heroes yet? I haven't really seen others in any posts.
  9. So I picked up the "kick off" set this week, and fell in love with the game. I'm a big fan the way the engineers look, and am looking for advice on how to get a deadwood/rusted look? A deadwood Mother with rusted metal parts would look particularly badass.
  10. Hey everyone, Just putting this out there since I enjoyed painting my set so much. http://m.ebay.com/itm/272671822748?_mwBanner=1
  11. I'm not a painter myself, so I'm going to have to hire someone to paint all the minis in the board game. I will need to provide the painter with reference images of each of the enemies from the video games so they can paint them to look accurate. I prefer them in this case to match the video game, since it's the theme of it, and will be more immersive that way. Anyways, I thought creating a thread where people can post links to enemy images or post them here on the forum would be helpful to others that are in my situation. A one stop shop for all the references for painters out there for hire that are unfamiliar with the video games. Thanks for your help guys!
  12. The Color of Dark Souls

    Dark souls is known for it's gloomy and gritty color pallet in game. But how does this translate onto the board? This is a place to talk about YOUR paints. Your pallet of colors that you use to paint your dark souls minis. Preferences and advice based on personal experience. What is your color of Dark Souls? Personally in curious as to what people are using for the Gargoyle

  14. Of miniatures... Got my box a few days ago and decided to paint it all up. My hands aren't as steady as they once were so I rarely do fiddly edge highlighting and try to keep it as simple as possible. Will most likely be tackling all the original dark souls miniatures before moving onto the newer baddies. The Chosen Undead. Executioner Smough Dragonslayer Ornstein Duo shot
  15. Hey you hollowed lot. Now I have my copy of the game and it's all in one piece *praise the sun*. I've decided to do a step by step painting walkthrough of my process. Will pick up paints and stuff tomorrow and begin painting tomorrow night of the main characters. *disclaimer* I'm no pro (not even close) just thought I'd share my progress and if people wanted to know what colours I used etc it would all be here in one place
  16. So I Painted the Knight

    So I figured I'd paint at least the player models, I'm notoriously lazy so I think sticking to four unique models may be best to keep up my motivation for now! So, Here's the knight: I vaguely based it on the art but honestly I glanced at the art then winged it. Personally I'm rather happy with how the metal turned out.
  17. I would like to paint my DS miniatures once the game arrives, but I don't know where to get started. Through YouTube, I know the steps for painting (cleaning, priming, and painting), but I need help finding quality painting, washing, and priming supplies to really get started without breaking the bank. I would love some help from pro miniature painters for supply tips, paint techniques, and quality brands to look at. Thank you.
  18. Hello, i just started this game about a week ago and chose the engineers due to their play style and the look of the models. though coming up with a paint scheme has been a bit of a struggle for me, the only thing for certain i know i want the wooden bits on the models to look like they have been burnt and ashy. does anyone know how i could achieve this effect? also any help with paint schemes would be awesome, thanks.
  19. Good morning (to some!), Can anyone recommend a painting service for Guild Ball in the USA? I realize now, that I don't have the time to paint all of the models I've bought and I'd love to send them to a painting service to finish them. Thanks for your time! -Quuids
  20. The Captain's (painting) Log

    Figured it was about time to start my painting log, now that I've committed to really doing some detail work on a single team. First: the final results of my speed painting. Masons: Hunters: These were just speed painted. Roughly 3.5 hours each team, including basing (which isn't pictured in these pictures). I spent almost as much time on this Brewer's ball as I did the other teams. Facepalm moment. My brewers will be Blue/White/Gray hence the laces.

  22. Hobbying tips for the fish

    Didn't see a thread discussing the hobby aspect of guild ball in regards to the fish. Figured this would be a good place to have people post their works in process, tips, tricks, questions any and everything hobby related. I have most of my team assembled, but I'm having trouble getting Greyscales to stay on his base, all that weight up and behind the contact point is making it a pain. I don't have a hobby drill yet, but I believe that is going to be the answer. Does anyone have advice on what size drill bit I should use for these models? They're on the smaller end of models I've painted and I don't want to destroy these great sculpts. Also have a WIP of my siren, cheers!
  23. The Work of a Meh Painter

    I thought I would put up some of my work. I am at best a mediocer painter but always trying to learn. If you have tips, send them my way. We will start with my Hunters and Theron
  24. Hey guys, I recently got into Guild ball (last week actually) and I decided to go with Union as my Primary faction, I just really like their models and their variety and their general play style, anyways I decided to start with big Boy Avarisse (I did not magnatize him, I didnt like the thought that he might get chipped by constantly swapping and it would also slow down game time) Expect Greede Next!
