A few months ago I wrote a post about a really cool Zara the Slayer conversion I saw on the Facebook Blood Bowl Community group and how it inspired me to attempt the same conversion. I usually shy away from conversions as I am not particularly good at them, but this one looked pretty simple and the results turned out much nicer than I would have expected.
I am not one for converting minis much. Mostly because I am not very good at it. I do not really have the eye to recognize what mini would look great as something completely different with additional parts. Plus, I REALLY suck at sculpting. However, every once in a while I see work that someone else does that makes me think, “hey, I could do that!” That was the case a week or so ago when I saw a great and simple conversion that someone posted on the Facebook Blood Bowl Community page.
It is worth pointing out that Andy Hoare has said that Zara will not get a reprint in the new Blood Bowl rules because she really does not fit in with the fluff of the game. The only reason she was ever included in the first place was that Jervis Johnson who created the game was reportedly a big Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan. Zara is basically a Blood Bowl version of Buffy. Why would I go through the effort of converting a mini for a Star Player that will not be included in the new rules? The simple answer is that the NAF has said that Zara will continue to be allowed at NAF approved tournaments.
Now, on to the conversion! I started with a 40K Dark Eldar Succubus mini.
