Goblin Referee

Always a sucker for ‘limited edition’ models, I had to pick up Forge World’s Blood Bowl Refereee set.  I managed to get this little guy done in an afternoon (it shows), but I’m fairly happy with the job.

As you can no doubt see, my freehand sucks.  I hope to get better and when (if) so, I’ll be sorely tempted to strip and repaint this.  However, there’s something a little charming about the crappy job I did, it’s as if the Gobbo took a shirt and decided to paint the lines on himself before the game 🙂

Orc Lineman

This is only second greenskin model I’ve ever painted to completion and I have to say I enjoyed it. 


I decided to paint up my Orc team in the colours of the Orcland Raiders because puns and also because I’ve never painted a yellow colour scheme. I think I’ve done alright, my aim is to get the linemen and maybe a specialist or two done by the end of the weekend. 

The Nuln Oilers

It’s been five months less a day since my last post, the longest gap in this pokey little blog’s inglorious existance.  Why the unwanted hiatus?  There were a number of reasons that not just stopped me posting, but also stopped me painting and gaming.

First of all work got very busy, trying to launch what might be our area’s last fund using European Union money (for now anyway) took a hell of a lot of effort and very long days not just in the office but travelling round the country.  Secondly, our younger cat Hervör was diagnosed with terminal cancer.  She passed away last month which meant that anything hobby-related was understandibly far from my mind 😦  Finally, our bloody bath’s waste water pipe sprung a leak and wrecked both the bathroom and our kitchen below.  As I’m writing this I can hear the builders rebuilding our bathroom and hopefully things will be back to normal by the end of the week.

Things finally calmed down about a month ago and I soon found myself itching to dust off my painting station and get started on something, anything.  As I’d decided on the colour scheme for my Human Blood Bowl team I thought it best to finish something.  So without further ado, I’m proud to present The Nuln Oilers!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, onto some Tzeentch deamons before I return to my Orc and Skaven teams…

My first Blood Bowl Miniature in 21 Years!

It’s been a while hasn’t it, read readers?

Truth is I’ve been absolutely rammed at work and long days coupled with the stresses associated with the project I’m currently working on mean that I was in close to zero mood to do anything other than collapse in front of a DVD box set.

Anyhoo, the long-overdue revival of Blood Bowl has got me well and truly back into the swing of things.  Thus far I’ve built up the two starter teams of Humans and Orcs, as well as the two Forge World Referees.  Not only that, but I’ve an on-sprue Skaven team to do as well!

Today I painted up the first model for my human team.  It’s not perfect and I can see a couple of areas to touch up in the photo, but here he is.

I still don’t know what to call my new team.   My old human team from ’93 was the Averland Angels, but I’d like something punchier this time round.  Tomorrow I’m going to pour over the fluff in my old Warhammer Fantasy Battle 8th edition rule book and see what I can see.

It’s so very good to be back 🙂
