Altering a Blood Bowl token

With a spare five minutes, I thought I would see if I could change a Blood Bowl token. I don't own a dremmel or it would have been much easier but as it was, scraping this out with a knife wasn't too bad. This will be for the wife's Pink Rhinos team. A little bit of green stuff and some tidying and it'll be ready to paint.

Speaking of which, the Jetz are coming along, but I've not finished the second one coats of all the base colours yet (I do one layer of each colour) so once that's done, hopefully I'll get motoring!

Removing Eagles

I've decided to do a little bit more work on the humans in the Blood Bowl 2016 set. Already I have removed the helmet crests on the miniatures that have them, and now I'm intending to take the winged edges off of the face guards. These bits are positioned on the sides of the helmet. In the picture you can see the catcher with these wing bits removed.

I've also got a plan for the 'coin' token which will be my next post.

Battleships!

In the middle of a game of battleships with the wife, haven't had time for any hobby stuff today as I've been really busy but there's still time for a quick game of something!

Who else plays traditional games?

Pink Rhinos 2 - 0 Knee High Nibblers

So today the wife very sportingly played her first game of Blood Bowl. For someone who isn't that interested in sports or gaming, Blood Bowl is a strange concept.



So, in the attempt of teaching the rules as simply as possible, I decided to make a quick Nurgling card...



And with that we started play. I did the honourable thing in suggesting plays, which ended up with me loosing 2-0! And the lighlight of the game, last turn and the Rhinos tried a long bomb. The linesman in the end zone dropped the ball, it scattered around and went off the pitch a couple of times and then the linesman intercepted the throw in with a 6!

Removing Crests

As I'm forever trying to make my miniatures look even slightly different, I have decided to remove the crests off of the helmets on my human team.


It's really simple, but as yet none of the people I regularly play against have done it. Not sure if I'll remove anything else yet, but I have got some hand/head/random body part swaps lined up.

Anyone else convert their blood bowl teams from the box?

#TBT Frostgrave edition

I've not really talked about my love of Frostgrave on my blog as yet, but I do absolutely love this game! Whilst I'm busy tidying my base coats on the Jetz I wanted to share a couple of my favourite miniatures that I've painted to use in the frozen city.

Here we have Tryk Loosepaw, a recent recruit to Malamax's fellowship of the long forgotten grudge.

Tryk is flanked by a couple of Imps from the beastiary, these are from Mantics range of Abyssals.

One day I'll complete the whole selection of random encounters... one day!

No Hope Jetz update!

Finally I have all the colours blocked in!



This has been more difficult than I thought. I figured if I used Khorne red as a base I would paint all the rest of the colours easy but I found it so awkward. I wish I had gone from black as usual. However I've done the hard work now, just a bit of tidying up and then I can shade and highlight and so on.

Anyone else use coloured primers?
