There was a bit of discussion about this on discord. Can you dig up some official evidence that GW Hobgobs were ever actually orange? Or was Citadel "Hobgoblin Orange" for the clothes?


I definitely knew the answer to this.......I can't remember exactly now.

Hobgob orange was very orange........it definitely wasn't the base skin colour. Either clothing or a highlight or something.

I'm still backing 'swarthy olive'.

One idea would be to do home and away with different skin colours. Fluff backs up that goblinoids of the same race aren't always the sames skin tone. So you could go for the traditional green for home and a retro retro colour for the away.

Personally I think some of the new tones are better and more realistic......but not more accurate for the figure line they're replicating.

Dark Elves

A little while before tussock left us, he worked on the Dark Elf expansion. There is a problem with dark elves, in that sometimes it's a bit tricky to spot who has moved and who hasn't. The problem is worst in the rain. So tussock shined up the armour a bit:

left: tussock, right: current, top: unmoved, bottom: moved
Image

I think it's a clear improvement

Here's the full tussock set:

And on pitches

Notes:
- the linemen expansion is a simple swapping around of the 2 varieties of helmet, armour, shoulder pads 2x2x2=8. There's one dude with two sets of shoulder pads, I quite like the effect of this.
- tussock went and had a look at the miniatures. Apparently the "flower" brooch is meant to be a skull. So he made it look more skull like. I don't think this works and bleeds a bit into the arm
-chest plate on armour variant 2 (e.g. blitzer #3), has possibly be shined up a bit too much. Could do with being a bit more like the other one)

Feedback please. I feel a bit reluctant tinkering with the work of others, rather than the straight expansion work I've done with the other races.

Next - Pro Elves

Well what you do is what you do. However the bronze look I created has certainly been lost with the update. Might be better to go back to the original grey for home teams?

Good touch on brightening up the unused players. Definitely an issue with some races. I was peering closely at my Pro Elves yesterday too.

I've had a go at the pro elf linemen:

Also, Balle2000 has taken on the solitary icon that got me started on this project (see OP), the human blitzer:

Not too much to go to finish the expansion: human linos, helf linos, orc linos, dark elves, zons

All these new icons are rad! Haven’t read through the entire thread but will this be a general icons-upgrade or should I implement it myself somehow like the custom made icons on SL (CIBBL/BIBBL)? Those human blitzers😍

I've made a few changes to the tussock dark elf set:
- reverted the oversized skull shoulder brooch
- reverted the shined up away and purplish blue to the original colours
- added some helmet variants for the lino set
Image

full set can be seen on pitches HERE

Also a few extra orc linos
Image

I think all that's left is amazons. Jim_Fear is producing a really cool set.

Oooh thats an interesting set! Could you post them next to the old set for a comparison?

Also the outline on some of the red clothing appears to be black. Usually that is a no no but maybe he had a reason for it?

So Hitler DID escape to South America, and join a blood bowl team as a linewoman. Just as I suspected.

There were lots of iterations on the red. It tended to bleed a bit into the skin tone. Having a darker edge helped.

If you click the linkHERE it'll show the new set on all pitches, it does also show the old set further down the note.

The icons are amazing!
My ideas for the Amazon ones:
hair could have different colours (blonde, ginger, brown etc.), instead on black only, and skin tone should be lighter.
The second Catcher's arm-sash could be replaced by a "wing" made by parrot feathers.
