The orc side of the Blood Bowl set are finished. So without further preamble, here are some pictures!
I have a problem; I finish models faster than I can post them...so here is the most-recently painted Space Wolf. The rune priest is a very fuzzy model (with fur covering most of his armour), but lacked many of the issues that most people report about finecast. There were a couple of bubbles (mostly underneath the cloak) but the details are very crisp and deep. It almost felt like painting a Forge World model.
The left shoulder pad was blank, so I went with a personal icon befitting his status, a wryding blood-moon. And off I go into the next bath of Space Wolves starting with some 'actual' wolves....more fur!!
This troll is a little different than my usual, a river troll who plays Blood Bowl. This was a really fun model to paint up (even though it is old with a static pose without a lot of details). When these teams are done I might actually miss them...
I am currently rocking four projects at the moment, and all of them commissions, which is pretty awesome if I say so myself! This allows me to make notable amounts of progress while sating my hobby add (which is crucial cause I get bored fast). In the past while this system has worked wonders for me, although the projects don't go as fast as they could.
This dreadnought drop pod was sent to me already airbrushed red, so all it needed was some details here and there. I thought the hazard stripes would be fitting and I think they turned out well.
In addition, this is a very converted model made from a regular drop pod. The base section was scratchbiult, with hinges built in, and the doors extended and textured. To my surprise, this was a fun model to paint up.
The Sisters of Avelorn are the next up on the high elf project with their flaming bows. I opted for orange flames, like d&d magic missiles, partly to reinforce the orange in the rest of the army. I also didn't go with an osl glow, with the models so close together I didn't think it would look right (unless I put glow almost everywhere).
Overall, I'm happy with the unit, they do stand out nicely. Next up; the Everqueen!
Until next round, be well.
Finished off the second pack of Grey Hunters recently, and I'm warming up to the space puppies. I am a sucker for minis with lots of details and these guys have them in spades.
They were all painted like the other pack, with one exception; the black/red triangles are reversed on the shoulder pads. Hopefully this will help tell the two packs apart.
The bulk of the Blood Bowl minis consist of Gork and Mork's finest. Given their large number, I painted them in two batches, so here is the first bunch of green meanies.
As requested, I went for a traditional colour scheme, almost like that on the box. I really like the old school GW themes.
Being a boxed game/starter set there are lots of duplicates (the second batch has exactly the same minis), and a total of six identical linemen! This was the other reason for doing them in two batches.
There are a couple additions to the team, four metal orcs who look like they just showed up to hit stuff. (They are the two in the middle.)
Until next round, be well.
