    Glory be, oh happy day, the beasts are done!


    The Drakwald Despoilers
    You may recognise McMoo from the first team I posted, Chaos Dwarves. I'm finally getting around to reusing some models. For several teams, I am planning to just amalgamate players from other teams, another reason for the same colour scheme on most teams. Saves me cash and time! Also, apologies for the bottom left of every one of my pictures - for some reason I cannot ever get my phone to focus on anything in that corner.


    The Warriors
    Entirely Mierce Miniatures with the weapons removed. Love the two metal big guys, and most enjoyed painting the chap on the left. First time I've ever used a 32mm base on anything too. Interesting size - too big for normal guys, but a good midpoint between the 40mm big guys base so my chunky lads don't look TOO huge.




    The Beastmen
    All but one have some sort of mutation, even if it's only a big head. Can you see the beast who hasn't been blessed? He's not happy about it... Thanks to Abraham Danglebreech and his mutant army for giving me the push to just paint them in all sorts of colours, and try something bright with the hair. An inspiration.

    I'm quite pleased with how they all came out, and it has been some good practice on painting skin. It's still the kitbashing that's my favourite though, using all those old bits and chopping and carving them until they fit - so good!

    Anyway, next project is finishing the terrain bits for my next Rangers Of Shadow Deep scenario, then I'll be back to BB to redo my 3rd edition humans...

    Thanks, Leadbelcher is a great base silver to add coloured washes or shades over.

    I haven't been back for a while cos Warseer went down yet again and I've been waiting for my browsers to stop telling me my time is set wrong (it isn't, just Warseer's certificate out of date again). Very frustrating.
    I finally finished the terrain I was doing and got going on the Humans! Several progress shots to show - I would have put these over over the last couple of weeks but... you know:


    Finally stripped and based. Loads of spraying to do, especially as I decided to undercoat white then spray the base rims black, which involves spray one at a time while masking the body of the model with a toilet roll inner tube. Not too bad, but took an evening sat in the garden with torches and a lantern so I could see what I was doing.


    All ready to paint! One linesman is done in the background, still working on a thrower, blitzer and catcher as 'test pieces' to plan how the scheme works on each position.

    In other news, I've rejoined the local league for a new season with my Dryad Wood Elves. Currently 3-1-1 and finding that BB20 gives you a LOT of money (especially if you play a high scoring team - 95k winnings in my first match. Enough for a thrower straight away!).

    Re: Blood Bowl Bonanza

    Slowly progressing with the Human team, just 3 guys left and I'm onto the stars and backroom dudes. Picked up a few bits over the last month or so too:


    Decided I may as well just get a dedicated ogre, as using one from the ogre team would mean rebasing the lot and using Grak, while awesome, would stop me ever being able to use Grak and Crumbleberry, which seemed a shame. Plus the boxed set ogre is dead cheap - <10 delivered. While I was searching, I also found the boxed set refs for 6 delivered and just couldn't pass that up, so 2 new refs to add to my collection. Pretty sure the new dwarf ref is going to be SIGNIFICANTLY bigger than the old dwarf ref...


    Saw these in the FLGS a long while back, and they popped into my brain recently as fun keg counters (think I was looking at a keg/fan counter on Greebo that involved drunken dwarves with kegs...). Unfortunately the FLGS no longer has them in stock so had to order online with P&P (bleh) but Wizkids blisters are <5 so it didn't break the bank. Looking at them, I'm pretty sure the end of the kegs is smaller than the old school dwarf shield so the shield bosses should fit on the end of the barrels, which will make for fantastic branding/logos for the different ales. Looking forward to this, should be fun to knock out! Gotta get through the Humans first though...

    Just been catching up with your beastmen. Gorgeous painting and colours! I particularly like the blue furred, and pink furred ones, and the eye mutation is inspired (Im stealing that idea). They look brilliant all together too

    Thanks, man. Your stuff really was an inspiration - helped me just relax about colours and just paint, cos your beastmen are all sorts of colours and look awesome. A very direct influence on the blue and pink!

    The eyes are a nice simple mutation to add to plastic bodies - the chaos spawn sprues have loads of eyeballs all over them, so just a case of picking one off, drilling a hole the right size and adding a little green stuff to made an eyelid.

    Re: Blood Bowl Bonanza

    Humans are done! EDIT: Fixed image sizes.


    The whole team!


    Blitzers. Ever since they stopped you rostering Star Players, I've used Griff as my 3rd Blitzer. The 4th I only picked up a couple of years ago, at a local show.


    Throwers.


    Catchers.


    Linesmen. These guys are going to do a lot of work, as they will be Vampire Thralls and Chaos Renegade and OWA Linesmen as well...


    Halfling.


    Ogre. Like Griff used to be my 3rd Blitzer, I used to use Zug as my ogre. Cheap plastics and increased team availability for him mean I can save Zug for being a proper star.

    I've been doing some bits to break up the humans, so here's my balls:



    The kegs are basically done, just trying to think up a name to paint on the back of one. After they're finished, I'll be finishing off the human stars and staff, then probably updating another old team...

    Cheers!

    Backroom staff and stars done.


    Coach and Apothecary. Had the coach since way back, but only picked up the apo a few years ago. Just like with the Orc coach, it's a model I've wanted for about 20+ years since seeing in a White Dwarf, and now I have it!


    Griff. Black Scorpion star player. As I'm using the 3rd ed. Griff as a blitzer, I needed a replacement. Picked this guy up for 5 at a Salute a while back, absolute bargain.


    Zug. The classic. Post-star rostering, I've used this guy as my Ogre, but the size of big guys now means he just doesn't look the part anymore


    The White Dwarf. Wish I'd got him done when I did my dwarves, but at the time he had to be played with the Black Gobbo, which meant painting both and having the right combo of teams and a willing opponent... Just didn't seem worth the extra work. Now, I can play them individually. Black Gobbo is in with my Goblin bitz, ready for when I get to them...

    Currently working on a Hellboy model which I'm not massively enjoying (own fault - I messed up the primer so it's pretty rough but fragile resin bits so can't strip easily), then I'm either going to get one of my Greebo models out (a birthday treat for myself) or give another old team a touch-up and rebase, like the Nurgle team.
