Author Topic: Blood Bowl... I mean Blood Puck... Blood Hockey? (New pics March 2022)  (Read 5516 times)

I have been working on this little project for a few weeks now after watching the Montreal Canadiens blast their way into the Stanley Cup Final over the past month or so. I thought "How can I make some hockey figures?" I researched and found some suppliers, and was all ready to buy some more figs... and then I remembered the looming pile of plastic glowering at me from the closet and decided to convert some.

Using the Blood Bowl Necromantic Team I started cutting and gluing and then painting, and then making terrain.... and here's the first finished figure:





Next up will be some more from this Necromantic team that I have named the Ulfenkarn Monsters.

Thanks

Neldoreth that is beautiful work. The conversion really transforms that miniature into a hockey player, well done. Paint job is lovely. Please show us more,

Great idea and nice work on that first player! How did you model the stick? I do like the loose tape. Would you adapt Blood Bowl rules to ice hockey?

By the way, the pictures didn't seem to load into this thread, although I was able to see them when I opened them in new tabs.

That's a lovely conversion and really well painted. Very nice pose too; good stance, looking down at the puck (which is just off his base), I bet he has a hell of a half slapper. :D

Awesome work, I certainly admire your skill- and madcap wacky ideas that display a love for Halloween themes :)

Reminds me of the old video games...there was one about a Blood Bowl styled hockey game, though the collection of games escapes me.

I always wondered why GW never made a 40k Hockey game.

Thanks everyone for the kind words, greatly appreciated!

It's been a slow project, and I don't really have any additional completed figures yet.... I do have a couple of WIP figures that I want to show.

Here's the goalie... I might just leave that fist back there, I might put a metal claw in it, or I might sculpt an old-timey hockey glove... or I might just put a fish/butterfly net in his hand for fun... What do you all think?!?



Here's one of the skaters that is closed to being done. I am really liking the frozen-blue deadflesh look... I wasn't sure at first, but now I am really starting to like it. It still looks dead, and it has an ice-like theme to it, and it's not just another zombie to go with the hundreds of other painted zombies I have.... what do you all think of the blue skin? There's much more skin on this figure (and the other figures) compared to the first pumpkin-headed fig that I did originally.



Thanks

I think the goalie looks great. The zombie skater does as well.

Will you attach the hockey mask of the goalie with greenstuff band? Or will you make a sort of helmet for him?

The movement of that goalie is pure Glenn Hall  but the clenched fist suggests Ron Hextall:

Way cool.
Not into hockey at all (not into football, but I have both Blood and guild bowl).
These mini's are great. Brutal and goofy and magnificantly painted.
