Road to the tsars!

This weekend I’m joining a Bloodbowl tournament.

It will be awesome, bringing a Khemri team, Tsar Strucked Ohlsdorfers.

Plan to do a proper post on that team soon, here are some wip shots of my coach model, Pointy McPointface. Not nearly done, three nights left but hey; its fitting an khemri player to be nocturnal I guess.

Im also doing Ithaca Benoin. Its un undead former Dark Elf turned Starplayer.

Bloodbowl Head couch?

Trying out an idea here, not sure if it works. But most likely this will be my couch model for my badland rockerz team. It’s a wip, based on a two-part silicone mould clay and a bad pun.


Ive also made moulds for my rock troll, in proper rtv silicone. Will try some casting in a few days when they have cured.


Apart from this, rest of stuff focuses on Necromunda. But more on that in later posts.

Press molded silicone ghost pirate


Youngest nephew loves pirates, so I made special one for his birthday. Good fun was had and he seems to have liked it.

Summertime means usually less painting and more gaming, this year is not an exception. 

I’ve reopened my 40K boxes and even played with the new rules, kind of likes them.

Plan is also to finish the shadow war Armageddon team as well as start a new warband for AoS. 

Picking up 40k again meant opportunity to actually paint up some scenery that’s been unpainted for over 20 years, here’s some wip:

Today a box of goodies from reaper miniatures arrived, since I backed their bones 3 kickstarter two years ago. The to-be-painted pile is growing fast, but that’s ok though.

Moosotaur, Greebo Troll and som gobbos

Players for a Chaos Pact team; Troll, Dark elf and a Moosotaur.

The troll is from Greebo, the dark elf (not sure) and the Moosotaur is from Eurobowl 2016. The moose is sculpted by the Kalle (Gimpen) who also has made the beautiful Ogre team available from Impact. He has done a lot of other stuff, super punch troll and some goblins. The dwarves I do hope get some wider spread some day, we´ll see.

The team that they are joining are wearing purple and are generally darker. Thats what I went for. Mostly glazing and washing apart from the metal parts. Quite fun.
Looking forward to painting my own moosotaurs soon. Really happy with how the horns turned out.

Next up are gobbos, completing an Orc team.

The first three from left are John pickfords sculpts, from wargames foundry/Warmonger miniatures. The last one is greenstuffed.
The NAF trophy was won in febuary, not by me but by the team that the goblins are completing the savage orc themed team I painted earlier.

Bloodbowl Dark Elf Team – Malal Temple Dogs

Based on the Naggaroth Nightmares from 3rd edition, these models are quite iconic I’d say. They bring the total painted figure up to 26 for the year, which is quite good but also means I’d have to step it up a bit to reach the three-digit-goal.

The team is devotees of the lesser Chaos God Malal, thats why they have b/w skulls. The mascot is a Citadel Temple Dog, the assassins is an older whfb dark elf assassin and a 2nd ed Bloodbowl Elf which has been given a night goblin scimitar from the older plastic regiment box. The coach is a dark elf corsair from way back, he’s been weapon snipped and been given a greenstuffed book. One of the linemen is a 2nd ed runner.

Here are some of the positionals:

  
Here’s the other positionals:

  
Group in full:

  

The team has already been fielded on the pitch, a friend borrowed them last Saturday when we tried his roster for the upcoming NAFC in Nottingham. Good fun was had.
  
Next paint project wont be batchpainting a twentyfold squad, thats for sure.

Bloodbowl Wood Elf Team – Gardeners of Degalaque C

The Gardeners of Degalaque C are known for their swift and proper execution on plays on the pitch.That’s why they are called Gardeners, they are keeping the competition short, like the grass in a garden.

Amongst the elves in the vast Degalaque forest the title Gardener is a ceremonial upholder of the order, carrying out the verdict of the Elder Council.

The team used to be bitter enemies of the Treehuggers of Degalaque West but seems to have won that feud.

Team is coached by the fierce Mme Butterfly, a proper Gardener by profession.

So I’ve entered our Open League this season with a Wood elf team, painted these almost three years ago but yesterday was the first time I had the opportunity to field them.

  
They are druid themed, and the basis is some neomics punkazones with added hoods. But there is also some necromunda eschers, mordheim sisters of sigmar, mourning fangs from warzone/mutant chronicles in there. And some lovely pixies from Stonehaven in Canada.

  
The centerpiece is the Treewoman/ Entwife, called Growtwice in this incarnation because of well, fluff. I did a proper blogpost on her earlier.

It was also an opportunity to finalize the first minis for 2017, five markers/counters, tadaa:

  
Not so impressive I know, but focus has been on some dark elves.

Since they’re done in an assembly line style soon there’ll be a whooping 21 more models finished! Hopefully.

If you wan’t to follow the Gardeners progress on the pitch you can do it here.

Last week most of the nerd attention has been dedicated to discussing the upcoming necromunda-esque skirmish game from GW. Lots of people are getting really excited again!
