It’s been quite a few years since I’ve posted any Blood Bowl stuff here, not for lack of wanting to paint/finish anything, but BB has just been one of those things that have been easy – too easy – to overlook until “later”. I’ve finally forced the motivation to get to work completing my 3rd Edition Chaos Dwarves team – nominally the “Zharr-Naggrund Ziggurats”, though I honestly can’t recall what I named my own team here back in the day – though they did get used, providing a fun and effective team to play with.
These were a “split” completion – with the first five being completed at the end of January – hence also the final models for Dave Stone’s Paint What You Got challenge that concluded at the end of January – and then with the last four of these getting completed in the opening days of February – it obviously makes more sense to just post all nine of them up together in this case.
Eight of the models are the “official” BB models, and the extra is a WHFB Hobgoblin war machine crewman of some description. It might have been a bolt thrower – I honestly can’t recall!
These had all been basecoated since the 1990’s. I cleaned them up, de-Skittled them to make them look more like an actual sports team (blue and yellow sleeves, blue hats, blue undershirts – gone!) – and the bright orange skin tone (remember “Hobgoblin Orange” paint and the Blanche hobgob face icons?) was ochred-down a bit as well to make it look more “natural”. or natural-ish, anyway!
I still need to clean up and finish the Chaos Dwarves and the Bull Centaurs (hopefully this month!) I probably also need to find a Blunderbuss and an appropriate Minotaur model to slot in with them as well, though that may take a bit longer, as an original metal Blunderbuss would be the most ideal.
