With Covid numbers coming down and vaccinations in place, I put together a small two-player face-to-face Blitz Bowl League this Spring. The inaugural season wrapped this past weekend. Months of model prep and league rule considerations were put through the paces.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
Next into the badlands…those with the vision of Roswell’s significance in the world. Its desert is a siren call to terrestrials and those that are not…Continue reading
The first gang has arrived in the badlands of Roswell and of course, it’s the law….or is it?Continue reading
In this case, hell must be overbooked by about 20 lost souls because that’s how many zombies I’ve currently painted to populate the wastelands of Roswell.Continue reading
I’ve written previously about these models and their inspiration, so this is a bit of a push post. I’ve got some other models I had planned to post on this weekend, but there’s a cold snap here putting my Dullcote spray sealant plan on hold. I decided to get a shot of these graboid-like creatures with a Roswell ’98 UFO in the background so I can go ahead and get these tagged together.Continue reading
A child of the 80’s, my favorite genre was near future dystopia. The media I was immersed in at the time all pointed to the 90s being a dark period. Games Workshop’s cult game, Dark Future…1995. John Carpenter’s classic film, Escape From New York…1997. One of my top 5 video games of all time, Smash TV…1999. As a personal tribute to these influences, I’ve grabbed three recent Oprey titles to game my vision of an alternate dystopian America in the 1990s.Continue reading
Blitz Bowl doesn’t have an official Wood Elf team…but the upcoming Blitz Bowl Season 2 does! In anticipation I went ahead and traded a sprue of Dark Elves for Wood Elves with @caseyrog I don’t have history with Woodies across any GW game, but I knew which approach I would take with the team.
Halflings were always my preferred Dungeons and Dragons race when I was a a youth, but I never felt drawn to play them in Blood Bowl. I guess I was never a fan of all the kitchenware on their models. I can get behind them being a joke team, but I’d still like them to look like a…well…sports team.
At this point, I’ve played lots of Blitz Bowl. However, I’ve played very little with the actual humans and orcs. Being the standard default teams in every edition of Blood Bowl, I’ve painted plenty so I’ve sort of drug my feet on getting their BzB versions done. My minis rule is basically ‘Play it Painted’, so these teams have sat in their locker rooms for awhile. Now, they’re ready for the pitch.
