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.
More gobbo goodness!
Part of my gitmob grots horde, led by Moonshineguzzler. When the points allow it he will probably be fielded as a shaman but as of now he’s a gitmob boss.
They are sculpted by Kevin Adams and bought via Knightmare Miniatures (a Spanish company).
My Gore-gruntas, two beasts from Reaper Miniatures and an old wyvern. The riders are an orc boar rider standard bearer, a savage orc shaman and a savage orc standard bearer. The savage orcs have had their faces greenstuffed, the one on the right I did 20 years ago.
Really like how they turned out.
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.
Turned 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.
And here they are, the team in full:
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
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…
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.
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.
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.
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…
