Orctober!

48th painted mini of the year, coach of the team Vilda OrchIdéer!

  
The model is from last years Orclahoma Bowl, theyve done a Starplayer called Cromnard Dung.

RN Estudios from spain is the sculptor.

Here he is from behind:

  
Next weekend is the EuroBowl and EurOpen in Örebro, I’m really excited. Together with jox and kaju we’ll be competing as Borlänge Fantastisk Foul.

Also bloodbowl.com seems to be up and running, indicating that a release of the new edition is coming soon. Can’t wait.

More Orcs’n’Gobbos

Bringing the total minis painted this year up to 46, by basing and varnishing and giving the finishing touches to these seven minis.

  
It also means that I’ve done all the players for my team at EurOpen. One of these gobbos won’t be rostered though. 

Here are more pics of the most recent orcish addition, two blitzers and a lineorc:  

  
In an upcoming post I’ll present the full team and their background.

Agents and orcs

With the EurOpen tournament soon it’s about time to finish the team.

But I got sidetracked and finished four agents first. These could all be employed by Hawkins Energy Department or any other dodgy government agency.

  
Or body guards, or sentries. One of them could be a PI I guess. They’ll be useful in lots of missions. Minis are from Wargames Foundry. They are part of Juno’s crew in their Street Violence range. And also, if you havent seen Stranger Things on Netflix you really should.

Finally here’s two blitzers for my orc team.   
More on the team in upcoming posts.

  
This brings the count for painted minis in 2016 up to 39.
It is good but I really need to pick up the pace.

I’ve also kind of sorted out my paints in order to make it easier to find the ones I need.

 

BloodBowl Ogre team – Ferlangen Jaded Serpents

What´s this? Chaos Ogres? In BloodBowl? Never heard of them. Yeah it´s not an official team per se, but bear with me. There is one available in the Chaos Pact team right and it´s not as if Chaos Ogres are totally unheard of in the Warhammer Universe, in the Old World that is. What´s transpiring in the bubbly realms that is called AoS I don´t know.

So it´s an Ogre team, dedicated to the Chaos God Slaanesh. Ostland is the most ogrepopulated province in the Empire so that is where they recide. Ferlangen is a small town in the Ostland province of the Empire. It´s mostly known as a trading town and has an abundance of antique shops, but also the famous Brewery of Sam Bugman.
Perfect place for a Slaaneshi Ogre Team right?

Here is a background thing I did for the Team Cup here in Stockholm 9-10 of April.

Jaded Sepents Team Background for stc 16 skärmdumpTurned out alright I think. In the team cup I´ll be joining forces with Pidpad, kaju and jox and the idea behind the cup is to focus on the performance of the team as a whole rather than the individual coaches. They did one last year, but I wasn´t able to participate then.
I think it will be great fun.

The Ogres are based on 40K Nobz and Badruks Flash gitz.

The second one from the right is greatly inspired by the old Hackflem Skuttlespike, I call him Gobblewhip Ripfiend. He will probably be a warpstone troll later on, when this team transforms into an Underworld one. Well, that is the current plan at least.

Here are the markers, new addition is the whfb chaos familiar second from left.

Here are some more sideline staff:

Left to right, apo, cheerleader and coach.

The apo is a secret admirer well known in society. But Slaanesh has followers everywhere. The miniature is found from Casting Room miniatures (an offspring from wargames foundry) and they are called Plague doctors. The snake on the base are from the whfb lizard swarm.

The cheerleader, forming the firm Järvens Espingar is an not-Bob-ogre made by Hungry Troll. The coach have I witten about earlier here.

And here they are, the team in full:

Chaos Goblins!

Painted miniatures 15-23 for the year, let me present:

Slaanesh devotees, since the crab is sacred. Hail to the Serpent!

These chaps will ultimately be the backbone in my future Underworld team for BloodBowl, but first another assignment awaits. Since number six is sacred by Slaaneshi cultists, these first six chaps form one of the covens for this Bloodbowl team in particular, counting as snotlings statwise. The seventh goblin is the waterboy/bloodweiser babe of the team.

The miniatures are from http://castingroomminiatures.com/collections/goblins

It´s an offspring from Wargames Foundry, they are sculpted by John Pickford.

From left to right: Rabidfist, Maggotspittle, Fondlefiddler and the waterboy


These two are markers for turn and re-roll and possible if there are any touchdowns for the team. The models are Grenadier from their AD&D range “2012 Dwellers below“, a Beholder and an Otyugh. The Otyugh is being somewhat restrained by an orcling from Wargames Foundry (a Kevin Adams sculpt).
Otyugh and the Beholder is about as old as me, casted in the early eighties.


Next up, some chaotic ogres probably…

Coach Järven

Painted miniature number 14 this year is this guy, I´m calling him Järven. It´s Swedish for the animal that shares the name with a known superhero. The model is made by Rykar Jové from Spain, check out his ebay account (z.ryk) for more amazing stuff. He´s been doing Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix/Idefix minis recently, a fact that made me buy my first minis for this year.
The goal is still to shrink the unpainted leadpile, but that does not mean that one has to miss out on golden opportunities when they present themselves. Oh well.

Here´s some wip photos of him:

He´ll be a blitzer in the Underworld team but first he´ll be the coach of another team, originating from the imperial province of Ostland. I´ll be more detailed on the background in a further post. The name of the team however is Ferlangen Jaded Serpents and their devoted firm goes by the name Järvens Espingar (that´s Swedish for Wolverine´s Baby Serpents). Hopefully I´ll get a chance to do their cheeleader as well, that mini is also quite badass. The numbers in the painting line keeps adding up but it´s perfectly fine, since they are all splendid miniatures.

Here he is finished:

 

 

 

BloodBowl Nurgle Team – Borås Black Goats

The team name is a reference to a cult of worshippers in the mythos of Svenska Kulter by Anders Fager. Team logo is used by permission from him, if you want merchandise with it, please visit this place.

First out are the Nurgle warriors, I´ve used whfb Blightkings for that. Only conversion is removing of weapons.

Here is the Beast of Nurgle, with a prone and stunned marker. The conversion is made out of a squig placed on a spider. I quite like him, check out WIP pics below.


 

Here are the pestigors, the two on the left are basically whfb pestigors with some addition of pink horror arms and headswapping (a banner skull and a gorkamorka cybork head). The ones on the right are savage orcs with head swaps.

 

The Group.

 

And here are the rotters, represented by opponents that all have been blessed by the rot.
From left: Dwarf from Battle of Skull Pass starter set, Gorkamorka Yoof with added tounge, WHFB Gnoblar, Orc crewman from Orc Chukka / Bolt thrower, Scotling from Impact miniatures and a whfb Orc Boy.

The team has been participating in the Open season at our local League, no tournament. Yet…
