Honestly, its not all 6mm!(5) - Blood Bowl (I)

I have been playing Blood Bowl on and off since the 1st edition, and its one of my favourite games ever, the release of the latest version and seeing my mates painting up teams in a matter of days put me to shame as I have had the last GW metal human team for 7 years and I have only undercoated them, so at the start of the year I determined to actually paint them.

I went with a relatively simple scheme to ease the process as I usually take about a week to paint a 28mm mini. Things started well and I get 4 minis done in a matter of a couple of days, then another 3, then I got distracted with my sideline staff(Cheerleader, Coach, Apothecary etc). Then I decided to paint the motley bunch of Orcs and Goblins I had and form them into a team along with an old 2nd ed Troll, these were fun to paint so I got through the whole team in a few days(more on these in the next post), before going back to the human team. That's enough background, on with the pics, first up my (GW) Human Blood Bowl Team and Staff:

Linemen (inc. an old 2nd ed. model):

My Catchers, Thrower and Blitzers:


Full Team:

Full squad:


Head Coach:


Team wizard:


Inducements/Score markers, etc:

The whole sideline:

I only have to base the Wizard and tidy the edges of the rest of the bases and they are as done as they ever will be.

Gruntz - 15mm Sci-fi Project (9) - More Vehicles and Bots

Almost there with this project, just the Army faction left to finish and whatever else I might buy in the future(so far more colonists and a VTOL are on my shopping list). I really cant face doing the infantry at the moment so I did the last of the vehicles and bots instead.


The Army Factions  complete vehicle pool:

A couple of Combat Bots:

And as my Colonial forces were lacking vehicular support and knocked this together from an old Matchbox army vehicle and a few bits from the bits box, its not great but serves as a recon/command vehicle and gives the force a little support:

Plodding on with the infantry now, but keep getting distracted by my Blood Bowl stuff.

I have managed to finish off my "Alien" faction for Gruntz with the addition of a few vehicles etc, first up, an APC:

Some Sort of mobile Weapons platform

More of the fantastic Ixx:

And a few shots of the whole force:

Tons of painting on the go at the moment, mainly my Blood Bowl teams that have been neglected for far to long!
