Just a note that Bloodbowl normally goes in the Other Adventures Board. I can move the Bloodbowl stuff there for you if you like? The conversions and painting are excellent though and it's nice to see them. A dedicated Bloodbowl thread would at least let the Bloodbowl players who may frequent the Other Adventures Board see this lovely work. Please don't stop with the posts!

I love the stark white helmets.

I like the bold painting, really striking look. Very cool!
a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

I get that Elk101, but as I already had a fantasy log I'd only just started, figured I'd add them here. Cheers guys, I went with white helmets for the old scheme to help them stand out since they were a bit darker. Figured I'd keep them for the nice contrast.

Managed to get another 2 linesmen done, as well as started converting an alternate Witch (Warlock) Elf so I don't have to have any duplicate poses. Just waiting on a pair of runner legs to arrive that I can also convert.






Gotta say, I'm very pleased with how all their eyes are turning out, I've been managing to get them looking in the directions I want! Pretty exciting for me, heh. All that's left to do for the team now is 3 blitzers, 1 linesman and the warlock elf.

The remaining 3 blitzers are all painted, as well as the top half of the Warlock Elf as it'll likely be a couple more days before his legs turn up. The last linesman is just green highlights, head and base tufts away from being too, so pretty close!






After this next linesman is done I'll likely paint up the remaining two quad bikes for my C100 Marine Rogue Trader project as they arrived as that essentially finishes that project's first wave, then it'll be back to the remaining 6 models left in the warband project - the leader herself and her library, big gribbly, chaos warrior, skaven packmaster and the final goblin.

Cheers! I actually got round to finishing the team, sans numbers, yesterday as the runner legs turned up earlier than expected!




The whole team, and some shots of each row -





So, back to sci-fi and fantasy for a bit till the next BB team(s), heh.

Hah, certainly. I got 2 more finished up today - the second (and last) goblin and the skaven packmaster that'll be goading the warband's big gribbly into battle.




They're all quite short currently, but the remaining 4 members are much taller and should help to vary up the height.

Love the shield...he looks a little disgruntled like he's trying to peak forward.

Wow!! Awesome painting! I really like your blue, green, and orange scheme for the blood bowl elves. Any possibility of getting a tutorial on how you did them??
Thanks!
LS :)

Whoops, been painting stuff and not really updated here. Which part of the painting process did you want to know about LazyStudent? For the most part it's base colour, shade, 2-3 layers of highlights per colour.

I've converted up 2 more BB elves in case I ever run a variation of elf team that requires 4 catchers, as well as made a start on a Chaos Dwarf team. I also got a cheerleader and frog done as tokens for when they're needed.

Those shields are hilarious! And your bloodbowl teams are so smoothly painted  :-*
