Thanks!

Got my Lizzies done(Sans Kroxigor, waiting for my order to arrive). I went a bit out of the norm, but this is probably the most 'acceptable' colour scheme I have used so far. Pics:

I also found out what to do with the extra Skaven models I have lying around, seems Underworld teams only use 2 Blitzers, 2 Linerats and 2 Throwers from the Skaven team, turns out I have 2 Blitzers, 2 Throwers and 5 linerats, now I just need to find myself a lone Chaos troll and get me a box of night goblins.

I may have a problem.

Btw, if anyone has a spare Chaos Troll lying around, let me know!

Had my first match for the local league yesterday against Orcs, with my Lizardmen and won! It was a very close match though and a failed "Going for It!" by my opponents blitzer was the only thing that prevented a tie game. Lizardmen seem pretty powerful, even without a Kroxigor on the field(the Kroxigor has a passive tail ability which makes it usefull when it just stands around, thus circumventing his nega-trait, Bonehead).

I also started to make a Bretonnia team according to the latest Cyanide rules for them, I assembled the Blitzers(knights) and Blockers(yeomen), but I still need to strip the paint off 8 peasants to make linemen.

One of my friends also found an old Island of Blood Rat Ogre somewhere, so that is pretty cool, plus I got my hands on the new Blood Bowl Troll by secret and unmentionable means. I don't like the model for the latter, but I'll be using it as a Warpstone Troll for an underworld team(found a use for the extra skaven models I had after making a team out of 2 boxes). Just need some Night Goblins and the underworld team is ready for assembly!

My wife has noticed the excessive amount of blood bowl teams I have gathered so far (4+2 under way and another 1 planned), so I might need to slow down my addiction a bit.

I'll probably go and paint Inquisitor Greyfax while waiting for the paint to fall off the Rat ogre and Peasants.

Got Greyfax done, aside from the base, I'm trying something new for pics, just hoping this works:

I also started work on my Rat Ogre, it is a nice model to paint, I am somewhat sad that I do not own any stormfiends though, as I saw an awesome conversion online which used a Stormfiend helmet, it was really awesome. Will post pics when they are done.

Thanks Kov! Cpt. Bluddflag will be sad to know the hatt is actually part of her head, though I doubt that will stop him!


Also finished my Albino Rat Ogre!

This makes my Skaven my first fully complete Blood Bowl team! I also acquired one of the new Blood Bowl trolls, I don't like what they did with the hands, so I'll be replacing them with Spawn Claws as I intend to use it for an underworld team anyway. But first, I made a team of Brettonians according to the Blood Bowl 2 rules by Cyanide, so I'll be painting those up first.

Stop making me itch to paint my BB-Team! I have too much to paint already! :evil: ;-P

A always, nicely executed. The green trim reminds me of the old school times of 2nd Edition W40K. My old vindicare assassin is still painted like that. But personally, I think it stands out too much from the grey basing. Also the skin could do with an additional highlight. I'm only saying so because I know you could pull it off. ;)

The colours on the bases are based on old style Blood Bowl positional colours, Grey are linemen, White are Throwers(Dwarf runners are considered throwers for some reason, because of sure hands and Passing skill access I guess?), Yellow are Runners, Green are Blockers and Big Guys, Red are Blitzers, Purple is for Secret Weapons and Orange or Blue are Strikers/Special. That last one changes a bit depending on who you play and stuff, as some use Blue for Star Players, other blue for strikers like Witch Elves and Troll Slayers.

I'm the only one that does it like that in the league, but I am hoping it catches on, as it can be hard to tell models apart, especially the older ones, but also human linemen and blitzers.

Thank you for the explanation! Never heard of anything like that, but it surely makes a lot of sense! Especially with the lot of kitbashing going on in BB as well as the often similar looks.

Haven't gotten much painting done the last week. I've been catching up with school stuff, just about every course needs a learning diary in addition to the usual group works, so its been busy!

I got my night goblins in today, so I have all the models for my underworld team. However, I am still working on the brettonians and haven't even finished basecoating them yet! I am hoping that I will have a bit of time over the Easter holiday to get stuff done. I'm going to be trying out my Dwarfs for the first time tomorrow, haven't played normal Dwarfs yet in any format, so it will probably not end well, although Dwarfs are pretty beginner friendly.

I hope to have some pics to show next week, I also need to find a new upload service as I can't upload stuff to Photobucket now anymore either, due to some weird bug in their site, which I have no idea how to fix.

If anyone is wondering, the Brettonian team is based on the latest Cyanide rules from the Blood Bowl 2 PC game.

This is turning into more of a bi-weekly paint! I have been painting though, but only here and there. The last 2 weeks of this school year are upon me and I have to take care of the last few bits and pieces. I took less courses this period, so I am not as swamped as previously, but the next few weeks are going to busy anyway. Nothing quite beats the lecturers and their impulsive last moment huge essays and then lecturing us about time management.

But enough of that, I painted some bretons for Blood Bowl!

It has been a while since I did yellow, it was not the best yellow ever, but I did a better job than previously in my opinion. For those that are wondering, this team is based on the Cyanide Bretonnia Rules. Claims of heresy are now allowed. Enjoy!

Your bretons are looking nice! Did you get a chance to play them, yet? If so, how did they fare?

Sadly I haven't had the chance to try them out yet! Wednesdays are usually our miniature game nights at the FLGS and my wife has either had an evening shift then or I've been too busy with school. I can wait to try them out though! But it might be that it will be a while, I haven't played 40k since January so I am hoping to play a match of that next week, dust off my Word Bearers. Or maybe try out some inquisition for a change.

Definitely bi-weekly!

I have been painting, just had little time to post an update with the final week of school underway. I finished up the missing Blitzers for my humans and my Kroxigor(s) finally arrived last week and I promptly painted that up as well.

Pics:
[+] Expand

The Kroxigor is hard to take a proper picture of, as it is slumped forward a bit. I am quite happy with how it turned out though!

Image
Image
With these 3 my human team is also finally complete!
Just today I finally primed my underworld team, the troll is intimidating me quite a bit, as it is highly detailed, so I might start with the Goblins. Can't wait to get them done though, as underworld is one of my favourite teams, especially since my other favourite, Skaven, is played by just about everyone. After I finish underworld I will probably get a box of Orcs to finish up the Orc team from the starter, I'm still debating on whether or not I want to get a troll for them, but I converted up a Goblin, so I might just have to!
