About a hundred years ago me and a couple of friends ventured into the amazing Old World with our fantasy football teams. The game was Blood Bowl and we loved it.
Recently Games Workshop decided to revive the game with new releases, and from what I’ve seen it is still awesome. I had to get a box from my local gaming store immediately and start up a team. I’ve decided to go with the human team. I haven’t decided on a name yet but I have an idea of the paint scheme I am going for. I think they will look great in grey, white and red. The orcs I am going to save for later. I love the greenskins, but first things first.
The box comes with round slotted 31mm bases – I actually measured them – but I prefer bases without slots so I am going to use regular 32mm ones. To my appreciation the new game board with the field is somewhat scaled up from the classic one, making it easy to fit slightly larger bases on it.
I started up my team by gluing together the figures I am going to use. This was super-easy and no miniature had more – nor less – than three parts to fit together. They also had very few mold lines making this process pretty quick. I altered one of the blitzers a bit, allowing his head to face slightly to another direction. I like the models but they would take quite some effort if one wanted to personalize them further than that. I am tempted to do this but at the same time I want my team painted up as fast as possible.
