Painted back in September, this team has been battle tested on the pitches of Chaos Cup’s 20th Anniversary. Finally, the Ironkeep Blood Bowl Club make their appearance here at WS&TZ in the last post of 2022.Continue reading
Another brief post during the Holiday. I’m aware I’ve yet to post pictures of my Khorne Blood Bowl team, heck they’ve been painted since September, but with the Goff Rocker in the last post, I converted up a 40K Noise Marine to be the “coach” of my Khorne team. Maybe musician models aren’t the best to represent coaches, but they are fun and I wanted to find some way to incorporate them in my BB teams. For this guy, I might go back and trim the barrel and clip off the guitar, but I’ve had a suggestion that maybe it doubles as a t-shirt cannon. Ha! Works for me. Thoughts on using Goff Rockers and Noise Marines for BB?
I’ll get that Khorne team post out soon!
This month I took advantage of the Orctober theme to finish painting up any outstanding, unpainted orc, goblin, or troll models. Oddly enough all of my models in this category are part of my Blitz Bowl collection. I have a troll in-flight to the house, so he didn’t make the Orctober cut, but let’s see who got suited up this month…Continue reading
Initially, I wasn’t too interested in the Silver Bayonet, but I recently met some local gamers who were getting into it pretty heavily, so I figured why not do up a little unit and join in? Using the Victrix Bavarian models (with the Austrian unit list) I wanted the unit to have more of napoleonic army special unit look. The official models look more like generic gothic warband to me.Continue reading
The last gang to cruise the wasted waves of Roswell are The Scientists. I went back and forth the most with this gang on what I could do to have them ride apart from the others. Originally, I was going to go with trucks and hitches to haul UFO artifacts. It ended up looking a little too much like a gang of bootleggers or something. When it dawned on me that a van was a vehicle I hadn’t used yet, the gang materialized.Continue reading
Recently, I’ve found myself in the position of teaching the king of all games, Blood Bowl, to new gamers. I thought this period was behind me and that I had moved on to Blitz Bowl and the occasional Blood Bowl tournament. Well, it turns out Blitz Bowl is an intriguing step onto the pitches of the Blood Bowl universe for new coaches. I have my full orc team for me to take to tourneys, but nothing to loan new players to learn the game with. What teams should I provide?Continue reading
I’ve had the models for the Elven Union team for a long while, but struggled what to do with their colors and theme. I didn’t have too much for them, so they just stood in my storage bin, sadly unpainted for a long team. It wasn’t until I decided to lean into their fluff of a collection of different elven types that became inspired enough to put paint to plastic.Continue reading
In the early part of 2021, I went on a bit of a ninja kick. I re-immersed myself in Cannon Film’s 80s Ninja movies and played through all three of the Genesis Shinobi series titles. As a child of the 80s, ninja had a hold on the media I consumed: GI Joe, NES Ninja Gaiden, TMNT, American Ninja, SNES Ninja Warriors, etc., so I guess it was a bit of a nostalgic venture. With Roswell ’98 being a creative outlet for these sort of genre tales that inspire me, it was only a matter of time before ninja would step out of the shadows.Continue reading
Pivoting back over to my near apocalyptic setting for Gaslands and Zona Alfa, I was able to work on and trick up a few vehicles for the third gang to ride into the badlands…the Thrill Hunters.Continue reading
