I am doing some work on Blood Bowl miniatures at the moment, while also playing BB games on the Xbox. I have my first ”real life” game of Blood Bowl for years coming up any day now, so its safe to say that game is the passion du jour.
That said, I wont have any new miniatures to show for a while yet, for a number of not terribly exciting reasons. So I am planning to do a little retrospective on the BB teams that I have painted to varying standards in the past, starting today with the Goleen Gladiators halfing team.
These funny little guys have never seen very much action on the pitch (I mean, who wants to play halflings?). They were a fun, fast to finish project, full of characterful models: ideal. Puggy Baconbreath (visible centre above) is an all time favourite figure of mine. His determination is palpable: he is as focused as a halfling can get.
The paint job was straightforward and quickly applied. Its a simple, bold and bright scheme that is well suited to both hobbits and Blood Bowl.
The miniatures are a mix of second and third edition Blood Bowl figures. The third edition guys are easy to spot I think: they are the four largest figures.
There was a painted treeman with the team at one stage, but he fell into his component parts at some point and was subsequently stripped of paint. Its possible that I will get around to painting him up in the gladiators scheme again some time. Unlikely, but possible.
