I Said It Was Going To Be A Blood Bowl Year

What I have found in the past is that if you don't know what to do, do something that you have loved doing in the past. So that has to be Blood Bowl at the moment.

Today has been about clearing up the bench and not killing the dog who has been driving me up the wall. I wish dogs could speak human because I would really love to know what she wants.

After dithering about deciding what to paint, I have settled on the Blood Bowl stuff. There has been a load of it sat on the bench for months in various states of incompletion. I figured that I wanted to start the Skaven Team, one of the more enjoyable teams to play, as long as you don't get hit.Then I thought maybe I should finish what I have started first. Then I looked up how much all the Star Players and Big Guys I need for the four teams I already have and figured that this would amount to well over £200. This has got me thinking proxies. I can't really do proxies for the big guys but there are prospects for the Star Players.  But that is a story for another day.
Anyway, I have to finish off the Troll big guy for the orc team and start the four goblins. This isn't a huge job but maybe one for next week.
The human team is a little closer to complete. I still need the star players but I am thinking maybe I could do some conversions here as well.

All that said, it's Wednesday and I haven't picked up a brush yer. I am not too worried. I have a load of half done human catchers and an almost complete ogre so I should be able to catch up and get to five figures.


  1. Nice one Fred!
    I'm really glad you've got your compass fixed and sorted your direction - you sound suitably fired-up about the project, and the work on the mini's so far looks great :-)
    I played 1st edition Blood Bowl when it first came out (I even got the game for my PSP!) - maybe you'll convince me to re-visit it?????

  2. The miniatures for the newest Blood Bowl edition look so much better than their predecessors, almost inviting one to paint them up. Have fun painting them!

  3. Wow! This has certainly fired your hobby mojo.

  4. Plenty of interest in your photos Fred, and I'm very much looking forward to your conversions. The Troll and Ogre players look awesome sculpts and you're doing a grand job of getting some paint on them.
