Painted up the six models for my Skaven Blitz Bowl team.
I also painted up two others so I could combine it with my Dark Elf Blitz Bowl team (and two gobbos) to have a complete College of Shadow DungeonBowl team.

I do like the pink spot colour on those.

Yes, that colour scheme works really well.

Thanks, both. I have a full Blood Bowl team to paint in the near future. I might go with different colors, but the same idea...flair with one glove. I like the way it looks here.

In the meantime, I painted up the Nobility Blitz Bowl team.



A little blog post about them: https://wyrdstonesandtacklezones.com/2023/09/17/blitz-bowl-the-nobility-team/

All looking great.  If you want an easy way of telling the nobility positionals apart you can change the colour combos of the feathers on their heads.  So with your colour scheme you could leave the linemen/women with 2 white feathers, add a black feather or two (or perhaps black and white feathers) to the bodyguards and maybe have red and black feathers on the blitzer.  It then gives an easy visual clue.

Nice idea. I might also simply color code those feathers wings that come off the shoulders of the three positional players.

One of my future projects is painting up an old school metal BB team. I'm doing an event next year with some buddies and we're bringing out old lead. These older models are smaller than the modern, post-2016, plastic teams. We're going to be using modern rulesets and pitches though, so I need to make a decision. Go with the original 25mm bases, or use the modern 32mm?

Have the model fill out the base, or have the base fill out the space? Thoughts?

Smaller base looks much better for the model.

Yes, smaller base looks much better.

While I still ponder the base direction on those metal vampires (leaning toward the smaller bases), I went ahead and painted up columns for the 8, single space blocking terrain pitch in Blitz Bowl. No I have enough terrain types for all 6 official pitch configurations.

I've knocked out a lot of Blood Bowl the past three months and have failed to post them here, so this is gonna be a photo dump of a post.

Great work on all of these. I do especially like your dwarven star player: the beard and hair and the yellow really stand out on him.

Thanks!
My goal was to paint a BB team this year... With these Black Orcs, I ended up painting four.

Fantastic teams! A great output for the year. I hope to get a load of Blood Bowl teams done in 2024 to help keep the activity up in this spangly new folder! :D

Thanks!

Yeah, I did _a_lot_ of BB this year when you also factor in the Blitz Bowl and Dungeonbowl teams. In fact, I'm down to only about three or four unpainted teams. I refuse to buy another (despite thinking the new amazons look fantastic) until I either paint what's left or get rid of it.

I'm looking forward to seeing your BB efforts in 2024. Cheers!
