Guild Ball: Navigator's Guild painted


I painted my Navigators over Easter. I chose to paint them all as an African guild ball team, complete with clothes inspired by various African clothing. I usually don't do a lot of freehand, so it was fun with a new challenge. The non-freehand parts I kept fairly plain, to increase the contrast.

Skin color


Haven't really painted much black skin before, so I tried this.

Basecoat: P3 Umbral Umber
Shade: GW Nuln Oil wash
Highlight: P3 Umbral Umber + P3 Jack Bone


Navigators Guild

Fathom got a geometrical pattern in Pan-African colors. She was the first of the Navigators miniatures I painted, and inspired me to do the rest to match!

Ebb got a Kente inspired pattern on his trousers. Inspired by an image I found here.

Azimuth has a Mali mudcloth inspired pattern on his armor. Trousers are plain green for contrast.

I wanted to do a Dashiki shirt for Windfinder, but it had so much structure that I could not find a way to do it. I decided to use that pattern as an inspiration for her pants, and left the shirt white with some gold trim.

Albatross wings are dark on top and white beneath, for camouflage. You learn something new every day!
