PM's Blood Bowl Stuff...Chaos Dwarf Team Finished 16 April 2017Pappa Midnight 01-31-2017

Hi all,
I got the new release of BB for Christmas and thought I'd create a thread for my Teams as I paint them. I originally had Undead, Elves, Orcs and Chaos back in the day but they are long gone. The new plastics aren't too bad and I've quite enjoyed doing them so far. I need more Blitzers and Black Orks as well as a Troll and Gobbo to finish the Ork team and I've got the Skaven Scramblers set primed and ready to paint. When I've worked through them I will be investing in a Chaos Dwarf team, although the expense may mean it takes a while.

Any how, my Orks so far:

Work in progress Shot


Blitzer


Black Ork Blocker


Thrower






Linemen


One of Each "Type"


The Team So Far


I went for a yellow colour scheme as I will be reserving red for the Chaos Dwarfs.

Hope you like them.
Regards

God, the amount of iron on them is a bit 40k ish for me but very nice none the less for it.

So Orks first, then Skaven, then CD's.  After that?

RE: Pappa Midnight's Blood Bowl Stuff..... Orks First...Pappa Midnight 02-01-2017

Thank gents, I had a lot of fun painting these.
I agree they are quite heavily armoured and it's probably my colour scheme that makes them look 40k ish ( I used a similar one for Gorkamorka way back when...
Orks and Skaven first just because I have them really ( i'm trying not to increase my un-painted mountain too much!) and then obviously CDs. Unfortunately the classic CDs will probably look a little small with the new releases so I will  go for Meiko's version of evil dwarfs. Their CDs, Bulls and Hobgobs are very nice and their minotaur is brilliant!
Next I will be looking at Undead, Chaos and possibly the new Dwarfs ( as guest team for my mate to use).
This will probably be a long haul but I will update as I go.

Coming along very nicely.  I very much dig the blue and white (vs. black and white) checks as contrast to the primary color, and the battle damage/mud/weathering on armor is also ace.

A very cool team. I like how you did the checkers; they look both rough and precise at once Cheers!

I just make sure my wife never needs to get me presents - I buy minis and give them to her, then she hides them until the next holiday. It gives me a reason to get excited about holidays - when I have months worth of mini acquisitions coming my way - and she likes it because she doesn't have to worry about buying me stuff I don't want.

RE: Pappa Midnight's Blood Bowl Stuff..... Orks First...Pappa Midnight 02-08-2017

I managed to generate a little extra "hobby" cash by selling some bits on Ebay and so I've taken the plunge and ordered a CD team. I went for Meiko miniatures and although they are expensive, I really like them.
It may be a while before they turn up so here's a couple of pix from the Comixininos website where I got them.





These should keep me busy for a while!

On a separate note I found a really neat on-line tool for generating rosters which you can print off.

I've never seen those before. Looking forward to seeing you paint on them. What color scheme you thinking?

I'm pretty pleased that I got them basically for "nothing" ( selling stuff I hadn't even looked at for years!).
I will be going for the same sort of colour scheme as my CD army ( The "Hashut Red Hats") and I am looking at different shades of metallic red chequers for the shoulder pads. The Hobgobs will probably have a red and white "split" livery like a medieval surcoat to set them apart.

I've just completed some additional Orc blitzers and a Troll. One of the blitzers has a converted 40k head and the troll is by Willy Miniatures.







I have received all of my CD order and they are currently under-coated and ready to go.

I've been tied up with all sorts of work stuff lately so I have had very little time for anything else. I have managed to get these varnished and based. Hope you like them.













I should have the Minotaur finished soon.

Thanks mate. I'm glad you like them. I was a little worried as I managed to "frost" them with my first coat of varnish ( I changed varnish brand) and had to rescue them with a respray and some hand brushing. You can still see the odd speck of white in the photos, although not visible to the naked eye.
