Becoming real
So improving myself and becoming a CR star (löl), and reaching a 2nd round in the FUMBBL Cup (and losing to some evil Chaosdwarfs)
I decided to analyse what works best and best works not Khemri but Goblins.

When I went (for fun) to the local GW shop in Vienna and asked about miniatures the guy there expresses to me how bad and expensive the game Bloodbowl would be and I should rather try some Sigmarcrap. I sawed him.

So instead now an old friend offered me these miniatures


Next week I will hold these little Gobbos in my arms!
and I plan to use those as a basis for building my first real life Goblin Blood Bowl team!
As you can see I will have to make loads of modifications, otherwise I would need too many bribes.
Also I hope to replace the dwarf head in the Troll's arms with a Goblin.
Any protips regarding ways of sawing off miniature arms and what kind of glue works best etc?
Also what colours do you swear on?

I will also need more miniatures..
Ball & Chain Goblins seem to exist many miniatures. But I think most important one will be to get (or better make) a CRAZY sawguy.

If I ever progress with this I will post beautiful pictures.

looks like some admins disliked the photo of gobbo miniatures
will upload and link to my server when at home again

btw i have that plastic orc and human teams which were included in the basic game. so i think i can reuse their hands and fists.

You can pick up the 4th edition warhammer goblins for literally pennies. Last time I looked the average goblin was worth around 10p.

If you're chopping up metal miniatures or big pieces of plastic, your easiest tool is a pair of clippers with one flat side and one bevelled. GW make these: http://www.games-workshop.com/en-WW/Citadel-Fine-Detail-Cutters but you can get the same sort of thing a lot cheaper elsewhere.

The only problem is that if you want to use both of the parts you're cutting apart, the part on the sloped side of the clippers will get distorted and squashed. If you want to be totally accurate and not ruin either piece, a razor saw is better.

For small pieces, or for cleaning up bigger bits, a scalpel/hobby knife/artist's blade is useful. It will also remove mould lines, which makes paint jobs look much better.

For gluing, unless you're making something big, superglue (cyanoacrylate) is best, unless you're gluing plastic to plastic, in which case plastic cement is better. If you are gluing heavy or fragile joints, pinning will strengthen the joint, and to do that you'd need a pin vice and some suitable wire (paperclips are a common source, especially if you can "borrow" them from your workplace or have them lying around at home already).

I love GW stores.

Me - I want to buy one of your old products please.
GW twerp - No, no, no, our old products are expensive and horrible, what you want is our new super great much much cheaper and newer product!
Me - But this one costs more, how is that cheaper? And it's not at all what I'm looking for.
GW twerp- Huh? Shiny! Look!

I've also had the experience of some red shirt trying to push old miniatures on me even though I'd already seen the new version of it that would be released a few weeks later. "Well that's just a rumor, do you really want to gamble on a rumor when you could have these right now?" Yes, yes I would, now piss off! :D

Anyway, enjoy the gobbos! They're currently OP!

If you're cutting through thick parts especially when it comes to metal, a hobby saw and a vice will save you some blood. Unlike the clipper advice above, this results in a really clean cut.

How expensive bloodbowl would be... yeah, because how can GW make a profit on 11-player teams?!

"DLC" sage! for new races and stadion upgrades.
