Imperial Nobility Painted
Hello o/

I have been painting the Imperial Nobility team from the Blood Bowl Second Season box. This is my fourth team to date, again batch painted one colour at a time, aiming for a nice-enough TT job in a realistic timescale. I tried to work neatly as I could in the hope it would save time by not having to go back and retouch previous colours. Today I spent an excruciating hour or so attempting to paint invisibly small eyes, and then a very enjoyable 10 minutes creating blood spatters = )

My vintage Morg 'n' Thorg was rebased (square Big Guy bases in my youth - daft really) and is complete with a decapitated gobbo head, its blood still dripping from Morg's handspike.


The team is pretty close to the standard box art, just a little pinker to match in with my Dwarf team, for potential OWA use. I trimmed feathers, reposed a few arms, beer mugs, did head swaps etc. to get the team looking individual. They should be usable as humans; my idea is to use the four models with feathers as Blitzers, and the slim female models Catchers.



I have painted the fiddly little ribbons and will stick them on if I find them! plus the transfer numbers when the sheet turns up.

Here a close up of sweating (final lick of Contrast Flesh paint drying), blood stained noble.



Thanks for reading, see you on the pitch!

These are ace Bean!
Lovely paintwork, and clever thinking on making the team dual duty as Humans/OWA.

Nice. Hopefully they play as well as they've been painted.
