  1. I love Guild Ball miniatures!!!

    I can confirm the second box does indeed have fully sculpted eyes on them so its most certainly an easier set to work with. Just a quick update. I've not been painting much guild ball of late but I am still tinkering away on a few projects, here's a little group shot of some Brewers I've been messing with.
  2. I love Guild Ball miniatures!!!

    Apologies for the picture spam but I've had a lot to catch up on of late, this time around I was asked to complete the Farmers team for a Mr David Cameron. Given David's namesake he decided on a little conversion for the Pig goal, other than that the models are as stock barring the rebase.
  3. Erahf's WIP Teams

    I absolutely love the conversion and paint job on Smoke. Your attention to detail is superb, I really like the lace on the bodice , incredibly well done. The paint work is subtle and very well done, if you can't tell already I'm very impressed .
  4. My Butchers :)

    Love the switch to the purple mate, it really does work well on Butchers.
  5. I love Guild Ball miniatures!!!

    Had a little time away from painting of late due to catching what felt like the plague. Now that I'm past the worst of coughing up my lungs I've got back to throwing so paint about. More Pirates you say? well here you go! 5 more of the Union all done and until the pictures of the Pride model I thought the last, Yay! I get to do another coin base . Here's a couple of pics of the green stuff work. Rage was a challenge this time around, the head I had to work with was a slightly larger scale so I had to bulk him out quite a bit and sculpt on some different arms but I'm pretty happy with the way he turned out. My apologies for the delay of my reply. For Anvil's beard I did a basecoat of Dheneb Stone (GW foundation paint).I gave it a light wash 50/50 water and Agrax Earthshade, once that dried I used neat Agrax Earthshade in the deepest recesses. After that I highlighted the beard using Dheneb Stone and adding white in for further highlights. I hope that helps you out a bit if you've not already worked something out, The colours I've used are out of production but I'm sure you can find similar colours from GW or other ranges.

    Thank you all so very much for the kind words regarding the Blacksmiths. @TanE Please do copy the Farris pose, I can send you some additional pictures if you'd like to see her from different angles. @Chapuzas Thank you! I may have some more pictures of the team stored somewhere which I'd be happy to send to you. I wasn't asked to do Kat or Vet Kat (Vet Kat wasn't out at that time) but if I'm ever asked to complete the team i'll be sure to share some pictures.
  7. The first miniature I’ve ever painted

    For a first miniature you have done very well indeed. The mistakes you've made on the others will only make you a better painter in the long run as that's how you learn. Keep painting and posting, I look forward to seeing you get better and better.
  8. I'll stick with what I said before, best team on this forum, the backdrop is gorgeous! (Skeletor in the crowd gave me a good laugh). Really looking forward to seeing what you can do with the Blacksmiths, the subtle changes to Cinder look excellent!
  9. I love Guild Ball miniatures!!!

    It's been a little while since I was last in and around the forum but I've been keeping myself pretty busy with a rather exciting commission. Ritch from Beard minis contacted me and asked if I wouldn't mind painting up his Blacksmiths for his channel. This is what I've managed to do over the past 5 weeks of painting and converting. The Forged from Steel set were a joy to paint, the cleanup and prep was as awkward as ever with the new plastics but you can certainly see they've made improvements on the first Farmers set. The only conversions I did for this lot was to bore out the furnaces on Cinder and Furnace and then remove that thing attached to Ferrite's knee. The Master Crafted Arsenal set is jam packed with lots of little details and was for the most part a joy to paint. Prep wise I must say was a total pain, Hearth alone sent me a little crazy chasing all manner of mold lines on multiple planes. Conversion wise I decided to cut away those clear poles on Bolt and use the anvil from the scenery piece to make him look like he was hurdling it. With Cast It was a simple turning of the disc in her left hand (apologies for the glare on her discs but seen as it was a skill of hers I glossed them to hell and back). Farris was somewhat a larger conversion but I have to say that the fact they are plastic makes converting a whole lot easier, just remember to pin where you can as glue alone wont be strong enough in my opinion. Finally here's a full team shot. Overall I must say that Steamforged are making some good progress with the plastics and I look forward to seeing just how far they can push it. I can't help but feel they shouldn't glue these multi part plastics together as some of the cleaning is a serious pain in backside but |I understand they want people to play straight from the box. Finally a big thank you to Pete for recommending myself to Ritch in the first place, much appreciated buddy!
  10. Brewers

    Love what you've done here, the tartan looks superb and although @KujoPainting makes it look easy I'm sure it's a pain in the backside to replicate, so on that note a very well done indeed. Keep sharing please
  11. Fisherman South Pacific Scheme

    This team looks lovely, wonderful warm skin tones you have, great work!
  12. My Morticians >:)

    OK Pete mate, I'm pretty sure we had an agreement about you not painting so much stuff! Lovely work as always mate, Cosset is the pick or the bunch in my opinion, the team as a whole is great. NOW SLOW DOWN I TELL YOU!
  13. I love Guild Ball miniatures!!!

    Your doing exactly what I did when I first started out, start small and work on things you are comfortable with for now and get used to using your sculpting tools and material. Once in a while challenge yourself to a larger conversion just to push yourself, don't go too big as you can (I have many a time) bite off more than you can chew. I've learned through making plenty of mistakes in my time but I personally believe that's the best way to do it. If you are unsure how to tackle something try sculpting it on something that isn't your model so you won't get annoyed about getting it wrong, that's how I taught myself to sculpt skulls . Most of all do it whilst your enjoying it, if you find yourself getting fed up just take a step back and paint something, sculpting is in my opinion as much rewarding as it is difficult so just keep plugging away. I'm pretty sure there are many a video on youtube about sculpting so soak up as much information as you can. I've only had time to sculpt of late and even that has been sporadic, this is something I recently completed, Obulus the Ferryman I'm giving this fella away by the way, all you have to do is like it on the Guild ball supports facebook page and you'll be in the draw. It's not a gimmick to get more likes or attention, it's just a way of giving back to this wonderful community.
  14. Morticans and mercenaries

    Stunning as per usual, you are really tempting me to have another look at nmm. I can't wait to see what you can do with the Blacksmiths!
  15. I love Guild Ball miniatures!!!

    Painting time is still pretty limited for me at the moment so I've had to scratch my hobby itch with some more conversions. @Kueller had asked me to repose Decimate to look a little more like the artwork. I forgot just how small the original sculpts were, it was quite the challenge to work on her but I'm happy with how she looks. @Peterseven Thank you, Is that the normal one or the skull faced one? I was thinking about doing a step by step on the skull face if anyone wanted it. @Furnace You are very kind indeed. I'm glad some of the stuff I do encourages you to do something similar yourself, feel free to share some pictures of your own work if you feel like it, it's always nice to see others work. Time wise it takes me about 8 hours to paint a model, the newer/larger models about 10 hours I think. The conversions are quite a bit longer seen as I'm learning how to sculpt as I go along, I'd say it took me about 15-20 hours for the Esters conversion but something like the Pumpkin headed Obulus was converted in a couple of hours.
