I've not seen that Bloodbowl team before, very nice.

Cheers, mate.
I posted a few of my old Blood Bowl teams on here a few years ago before I sold them off on ebay.
There are another couple here if you want to take a peek before photobucket kills that too:

Back on the subject of the Lords of the Multiverse nonsense, the paint is starting to materialise and I hope to finish the first of them tonight.
In the meantime here are a couple of companion creatures that will be joining the crowd, as I wanted to add some variety to the project.

First up is Not-Severin with his Not-Gryph Hound*....



*because I really like those Gryph Hound models.  ;)



And Lord Klegghead with his Swamp Beast**



**because I love this Four A beastie and have been trying to find somewhere to add him into for ages.

Never heard of these characters, but I'm in awe of the greenstuff skills. Awesome stuff.

That is how I feel now I have the mojo.
Lets hope it is still around tonight when I get the time.

Thanks. I should be getting better as I am getting enough practice lately.
 ;)

As for having not heard of the characters: I am not surprised as the first three are alternative sculpts for one of the factions for the game Shadespire, whereas 'Lord Klegghead' (as he has the head of a Klegg...) is just a placeholder/silly name until he gets a proper one.


Suggestions for 'proper' names for any of the characters are always appreciated.
 :D

Cheers, Al.
Lets hope that you still think that when you see them coloured-in!
 :D ;)


Speaking of which, the colouring is pretty much done on the Shadespire alternatives, I just need to wait for the varnish to dry and then base them. Then it is time for piccies and to see whether or not I have pulled off the look I wanted for them.
Fingers crossed!
 :)

Have no fear, sir, the Four A beast and his master are next in the queue.
I have been wanting to paint that Beast for ages but have not had an appropriate place to add him into a project until now.
He shall be painted at the same time time as Lord Kleggy,

Cherers, John.
Hopefully they prove a little more interesting later as I am finishing off the basing this afternoon and will take pictures when they are done.

Group shot of the first four finished models now that basing is complete.










There were a few nightmares involved at this stage...
Firstly, the 'crackle medium' that I bought did not work the first time when I added a small amount of colour to it.
I wont be doing that again.
It was not a disaster, I just had to do it again and paint on top of it, but it was tedious waiting for it all to dry again.

Secondly, my matt varnish is, apparently, knackered.
It has frosted and left a blue sheen in places. This could have been a disaster on other figures, but here on these, I really do not mind as it just adds a weird sheen which may be 'magic'.
Well, that is what I am going with anyway....

Oh, and I shall be saving it for when I want that effect.
 ;)

Individual pictures later....

Loving the light blue on these. Are they inspired by anything in particular or just random '80s-ness?

 :)

These are pretty much simply made up.
As they are Shadespire alternatives I wanted them to be fairly recognisable as the original characters.
Apart from the big hair, of course...
 ;)

The 'Bad Guys', on the other hand, will certainly have much more of an 80's influence, with MotU being a particular source of inspiration.

I have been giving the setting a little more thought and have a few ideas in which direction to take this project from now on.
 :D

The individual shots, beginning with something new, the Gryph Hound...

 :D

Each group will consist of three 'Heroes' and will be joined by a 'companion beast' and a small group of 'retainers/minions'. I may even add a larger creature to each group at a later date. Maybe...

The parts for the 'Minions' for this group have been ordered and will be added soon.
