So I have been following a blog called Laughing Ferret for some time now and he has been posting up some coverage of the NATC: North American Team Championship of Blood Bowl in Las Vegas. Well after seeing his reports and also watching him do some amazing conversions for Blood Bowl teams, I decided that I should put up a few of my teams.
|I still have the box!|
|Remember these oldies, yes I still have them!|
Now I have been a huge fan of Blood Bowl for some time, starting with 2nd edition. We had about 10 people with teams and we ran a couple of leagues. My wife even was involved and had a team (Rainbow Warriors). But other games took our interests elsewhere and Blood Bowl faded away from the table. Up until the beginning of 2012, which I hosted a Blood Bowl day and had a few friends come over. Everybody loved it, but once again it faded away.
Well, I want to change that, I may try to rally the troops to play more Blood Bowl. Now GW is once again making it tough with the demise of Specialist Games, but where there is will, there is a way. So the first plan is to post up some of my teams to hopefully inspire folks, we will see. So here are my teams, first up the Dirty Rat Bastards, a 1st edition Skaven team. This is a pretty basic team, I do want to pick up a Rat Ogre to flesh out the team, we will see.

Next up are the Brittle Bones, a Tomb King team that is all converted from plastic Tomb king model. I built these guys a few years ago on a whim and I loved every minute while doing it. I also loved the color scheme that I used, which was going to be the colors for my Tomb King army before I sold it. I purchased a Mummy from Westwind Miniatures to add to the team, but I pressed him into service for Pulp games, so I will need to buy another one (oh darn!)
|The Throwers! No witty names yet.|
|A couple of Blitzers|
|A few Catchers|
Next up is my Dwarf team, the Black & Bruisers! This is another 1st edition team and there are a bunch of them. This was my brothers team, although they were Green & White after the Eagles colors. Well those were looking pretty bad so these boys got a dip in the Simple Green and repainted back in 2012. I love these figures, they have a bunch of character in there faces. Also you will see one figure that is a dwarf, but a Chaos Dwarf and that's the Thrower. Since Dwarfs were not a throwing team (nor are they now) my brother wanted a dwarf thrower, well he found one and it works well with the team.
|Black & Bruisers|
|Chaos Thrower, why not?|
|Hey you, come here!|
|I got something for yeah!|
Next up is another classic team from the good old days, a High Elf team. Now this paint job was dictated to me from my son to look like the Denver Broncos. We still need to come up with a name for them and like High Elves, they are colorful. There are also a few other cool figures, like the Elf Blitzer (Can't remember his name) as well as the Elf Kicker. Yes you could actually have kicker models on your teams!
|Bucking Broncos?? Or something else?|
|Blitzer whats his name!|
|Look everyone at my pretty nails!|
|Hair Band wannabes!|
|Orcland Raider team shot|
|Da Black Orc Blockers|
|Da Throwers, Little gunz on the Left, Big Gunz on the right!|
|Were sexy and we know it!|
|Da Stealin Crew|
|Our TD marker!|
Now, that concludes the fully painted stuff, here are a few others that are in need of work. First up is my wife's old team, The Rainbow Warriors. This is another 1st edition team and my wife painted these here self 20 years ago. They are a bit dinged up and she will not let me strip them. So they sit waiting there turn to play. Notice the old color bases, that's how we used to keep track of which position the models were. No fuzzy rings here!
|My Wife's Rainbow Warriors!|
|Drow's Rage Chaos Dwarves!|
|My old dark elves!|
|Were mean, were tiny, were going to kick you in your hiney!|
