Blood Bowl 3e: Chaos Dwarf Team Minotaur – C34 Ox Roar, Chaos Champion of Ultimate Slaughter! Team Complete!

Blood Bowl 3rd edition Chaos Dwarfs, Zharr-Naggrund Ziggurats, Hthark the Unstoppable, Ox Roar, Chaos Champion of Ultimate Slaughter, Minotaur, Chaos Dwarf Bull Centaur

So hey! I finally found that missing Minotaur that fit the old-school ethos of my Chaos Dwarfs, allowing me to finally complete the team! Like, properly and fully.

Blood Bowl 3e: Chaos Dwarf Team Minotaur - C34 Ox Roar, Chaos Champion of Ultimate Slaughter

This Minotaur is actually from a generation of models preceding this 3rd Edition Chaos Dwarf team, and so he’d work well with the Original Chaos Dwarf players. As it happened, I really did not like the 3rd Edition Blood Bowl Minotaur player model at all, so I went looking for an alternative option. That option turning out to be one of the really old-school C34 Minotaur Lords range, named “Ox Roar, Chaos Champion of Ultimate Slaughter”. I originally painted Ox-Roar here a number of years back, though his shoulder pauldron was a different colour, not one that fits the current Chaos Dwarf colour scheme. I got him a long, long time ago, and set about removing his axe so he could be a Blood Bowl player – he looked perfect for the role – I mean, just look at him and his gladiatorial-themed gear!

That meant that once I found the large, hirsuite fellow, all I’d need to do would be to repaint the pauldron, touch up any chipped/scuffed or damaged paint, add the appropriate player number, and he’d be read to smash heads on the Blood Bowl pitch once again- or butt heads, painful given that third hornm he has in the middle of his forehead!

And that’s that! Now that this team is completely, err, completed, I’ve finally removed the last mental block stopping me from going back and completing one of the two other somewhat-painted teams I need to update for the modern day. There’s my oldhammer++ Orcs and also my “middlehammer” Khemri team. Which to work on… which to work on…

  1. The team look great all together, and I think the timing is god too. The preview looks like being a new Amazon team, so we will be waiting longer for updated chaos dwarfs. In truth any updated team would have to look great to get me to abandon my own 3rd ed models!

  2. Awesome work on the Minotaur mate, was always one of my favourite models, and funnily enough I painted mine in a similar colour scheme back in the day ! LOL
    I vote Khemri as that could look great after your brushwork.

  3. Damn, just lost my post (my fault). The mini looks great. I actually thought he was an older BB model and didn’t realize he was a conversion! There are a few of those old models that are scarce, so I’m not surprised when I see one I hadn’t seen before. Personally,
    I’d go with the Orcs. The roster is already out there and didn’t change too much over the years. I have a feeling Khemri will get a big change. Chaos Dwarves might too, but I think people will really bitch if they change too much as they have been a very popular team for some.

    • Thank you! Yeah, from memory the official Minotaur from this era was a weird 2-part model with the cut at the waist. I didn’t like it at the time, so I got this guy and chopped hm up.
      My Khemri team (I found them) was based on the generic Undead of the day (my conversions predated the later official Khemri rules), so it’s going to be playable using the generic Necromantic Undead rules.

      My orcs are going to present a bit of a problem, in that I’ve got WAY too many players across several iterations of the models from 2nd, 3rd and converted WHFB players – all doing the scale creep across time. Figuring out what to do with which of them, what to repaint and what to leave as old-school paint.

      That’s all without taking into account the 2 full modern Orc teams. And the Black Orc team. So it looks like I’ll have 2-3 Orc teams that can compete with one another. Maybe I can drop a couple into a Chaos Renegade team or something….

      • Unless something has changed recently, Chaos (Pact) Renegades only have 1 Orc. Though whose to say you couldn’t have the linemen be Orcs and throw 1 human in there instead!

  4. These look awesome, mate! I really like the Minotaur and it certainly adds some height to the team to go along with the centaurs 🙂 I think you should paint Khemri because I like Tomb Kings a lot and miss them in Warhammer. I’m sure that alone will give you plenty of motivation to work on them 😉

    • As luck would have it, I’ve been working on these guys a bit in the last couple of days. Turns out that this team dates from before Khemri teams were a proper thing, and (by the rules at least) it’s actually a Necromantic (or Standard, at the time, generic) Undead team that I gave a Tomb Kings/Khemri flavour with my model choices (WHFB models/simple conversions) for many of the players (and the scheme).
      Anyway, I should have the ghouls completed by tomorrow (a lot was already done) and then it’s onto some of the Zombies, then the Wights before the rest of the Zombies, the Mummies and the Star Players…
      And I’ll see if I can find the basic Skellingtons, since they’re not in the same case…
