Miscellaneous Modelling Blog
The last blog was a bit of a rush job before I went home for x-mas so I didn't have time to go into full details of this team and what else I was working on.

The catchers are partly painted but not worth showing yet and the Blitzers need some greentuff work after my blinds fell off the wall and wiped them out, luckily the damage was not too great and the painted models were all fine. I still have 2 models left to build, a team coach/wizard and Zara the Slayer.

For the Wizard I'm using the leader model from the Mordeim gang, she's a pretty cool model and has a staff so doesn't need much conversion though i couldn't resist adding some fire.



For Zara I will be using Lelith Hesperax, she's such a lovely sculpt and is also my 1st finecast. Have to say I am not that impressed with the material, it is easy to work with but a bit fragile when cut, so I am going to have to think carefully about what conversion work I do to her.



To respond to some comments from the previous blog.


@TheElectricWizard - Yes I wanted them to look like lightly armoured athletes so their clothing would provide some protection but would mostly rely on agility. My original concept was even more modern looking so they could be used as humans too but Kalimar wished them to retain the savage aspect so I hope I have combined the character of Amazons but made them look like "realistic" Bloodbowl players.



@Nazgob - The legs are from the classic plastic Dark eldar with the loin cloths from the new range, the bodies and heads are from mordheim amazons, the shoulder pads from kroot and the hands from mostly dark elf spearmen but also wood elves, empire, dark eldar and the mordheim zons. Extras are from a mixture of forest goblins, lizardmen and the mordheim zons.



@Everyone - Thank you for the very nice comments it means a lot to me.



@Keith-Lemon - It all depends on how involved the conversions are and the concept, but sadly I'm pretty busy at the moment. See below for my current other projects.

I'm discussing with Topper about doing a Chaos Dwarf and Norse team, we haven't decided which to do first so no test models to show yet.

Jimjimany won this year's White Isle Star Bowl and so gets a team of his choice created by me. He went for Chaos Pact and liked the idea of the marauders looking like the 2nd edition chaos humans. I've created a concept model using bits from the Empire Greatswords, chaos marauders and chaos knights set though I still need to Chaos him up a bit more. The trick is trying to get a balance between the look of an AV9 ST4 Chaos warrior and an AV7 Norse lineman.



PeteW has asked me to do a team for the NAF Championship winner for 2012. I'm quite honoured and hope to do it justice as last year it was a beautiful Undead team. But I like the idea of the winner getting a tier 3 team to maybe encourage them away from the top races so thought about goblins. GW released some fab forest goblins with the Arachnarok Spider so I got my hands on some of them. I'm thinking with the greenstuff this guy could be holding a massive looney toons style bomb.

Not sure what to do for the other secret weapons, chainsaw as lumberjack on a treeman stump, Pogo bouncing on a mushroom or squig hopper, fanatic with elf heads or the tied up fling from he giant model?
The Plastic River trolls suit the goblins but I might forest and troll up the new giant ghouls instead.

I'm also working on my own projects which include a Khemri team combining the necron and tomb king range. I want them to look a bit more like BB players and the necron torsos kind of resemble the body armour the players of US football wear.

I think this guys makes a pretty dymnamic lineman, maybe too much and I should give him the head from the tomb guardians to make him a blitz-ra or thro-ra.


Speaking of Tomb Guardians on seeing the Necron Lychguard I instantly thought they'd make great Tomb Guardians. I've added the head and arms (which are a bit long still so need to be trimmed) from the necropolis knights and will sculpt or carve the knees and ankles to look like bone.



Oh and I got this vampire from the Terrorgheist model, not sure what else he could be aside from a Vampire, though he does look like a ghoul so could be J Earlice I suppose, does anyone ever use him?




All this stuff is in the ideas stage so any suggestions I can steal and pass off as my own ideas would be welcome. ;-)

Awesome stuff, as always.

Jeez 2012 has not even started and you have your hands full already. They will look impressive when done!

@ the Chaos dorf album. Dont leave the big hats! BIG HATS FTW! mask sucks!

There's sure a lot of work going on there. Thanks for the direct response.

With the NAF Championship team, is there any way that you could use the netters? Maybe they're using spider's webs as a chainsaw, somehow (weak, I know). Alternatively, a spider rider would make a nice pogoer.

Spiders as trolls maybe? Love the giant bomb - my bomber has one that says "kaboom" on it.

Presumably Lilith would need a prone marker of some sort?

All lovely though, obv.
