Under the Brush: Tale of Tuesdays Part 3

IMG_20190914_163752

Well, even though I based up these three minis this weekend with time to spare for the Tale of Painters’ Tale of Tuesdays challenge, I forgot to take a nice photo of my minis. So here’s this one I shared with my buddies over the weekend from my work table. One catcher and two linemen. The lineman on the right got a slight conversion, an arm swap with a wardancer, just to give a little more variety to the pose.

Scandalous unpainted picture below!

Under the Brush: Wood Elves for Tale of Tuesdays

The day after I wrote my unboxing for the new Games Workshop Atherlorn Avengers kit, I started painting some minis for the Blood Bowl painting challenge put on by Tale of Painters. If you’ve seen my post on the Blood Bowl Community over on Facebook, I’ve been playing around a lot with Photoshop trying to nail down my team colors. While my Arsenal and Codillion Clarions color schemes got lots of likes, in the end I decided to go with a Celtic inspired theme. I felt this was both sporty and fit with the nature aesthetic I felt most wood elf teams would go for. Continue reading

Blood Bowl: Wood Elf Team from Iron Golems

Having been around the game of Blood Bowl for 25+ years, it takes a special look to get me excited about a team. Well, it takes that 2nd edition ‘fantasy sports’ look to be precise. I’m not sure if that style was once called ‘cyber sports’, but in my circles we just call it the ‘2nd edition look’. I’ve sort of passed along teams from the 3rd edition ‘Warhammer Army’ era, and have yet to pick up a team with the current GW ‘Gladiator’ (for lack of a term) aesthetics.  In the past 3 years the most recently produced team I’ve fielded in a game has been the plastics from the 3rd edition box…and this is the most prized Blood Bowl book on my shelf:

I think you see where I’m coming from.

So…with those leanings I am trying to make an effort to not just stick to Oldhammer minis, but to find, and support, companies that are currently producing content for the game, _but_ with that style that excites my nostalgic and creative juices.

One such company is Iron Golems from Spain.
