Miniature Games Construction Yard

In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.

Blood Bowl (Third Edition) is hot! GW is releasing new edition of the game. I'll stick with third edition. Some teams are still missing from my collection. Dark Elves was one of them.



I scored a bunch of Dark Eldar Warriors and Whyches on the CRISIS Wargames Convention. To build my team I'll combine these with Wood Elves and High Elves bits from my bitsbox.



The three "OldHammer" heads on Dark Eldar torso's will represent Blitzers. Two Whiches will be used as Witch Elves. The rest of the box will be used for my future Necromunda Esher Gang.



I won't be building Runners nor Assassins. Converting up to eight Linemen will be enough top form a top team.



By selecting shield-arms and archer-arms from High Elves and Wood Elves plastic sprues I was able to give the miniatures a Blood Bowl look and feel.



Next team: I want an undead team but I don't have enough skeletons... yet... So I'll put a Nurgle team together by using old Beastmen and Mantic Ghouls...

My second test-match. And I was honestly surprised AGAIN how smooth and immersive this fast game is.



Lizardmen took the kick-off and Dwarfs picked up the ball. Immediatelly three Saurus players stormed forward. That must have been quite an impressive sight for the Dwarf runner.



He ran away at safe distance from the Saurus players, ready to pass.



The pass failed initiatelly but was later recovered.



The Dwarf runner got blocked and KO'd.



Yet again, the Dwarfs stallwardly recovered and made a run for it.



Which eventually resulted in a touchdown!



Dwarfs 1 - Lizardmen 0



The Dwarfs kick off but the Skinks fail to pick up the ball and it scatters! The stunties are slow but still manage to reach the ball and steal it from the Lizardmen.



They are dangerously close the the end-line and ready to score a second touchdown... Ooow nooooo, a failed pass! The ball bounces around but does not get in reach of the Dwarf blitzer.



The Skinks take the ball, pass and run. They manage to get past all Dwarf blockers. Will this be the equalizer?! Only seconds away from the final whistle... whistle



ALAS! The Lizardmen just-not-make-it! Only 7 squares away from the touchdown. This was close. Very exiting win for the Dwarfs!

While I'm not the best writer, I can still guarantee you this game is very fast-flowing and story-telling. I'm ready for the next game!

Another team for my Blood Bowl (Third Edition) game: Norse Raiders.



Those Chaos Thugs from Claymore Saga were in my bits box for too long. I can't really use them in a Warhammer Chaos army because they have no ranged troops. (So the story goes...)
I have been using some regiments in my Beastmen army to replace the Ungors with ranged weapons. This fits well into the background story of Beastmen cooperating with Chaos warbands.
But these 10 Thugs had their left arms removed and replaced with High Elf shield arms. They're all footballers now!

The yeti miniature from World of Warcraft: The Boardgame – The Burning Crusade will be used as a Snow Troll superstar. The Wolfen and Gnoll are also from the same board game. They'll be Ulfwereners (or werewolfs) for this Norse Blood Bowl team. I guess they'll become the top players soon.

Teams collected/built so far:
- The Empire
- Orcs
- Dwarfs
- Wood Elves
- Lizardmen
- Chaos
- Norse

Enough to host a game evening :-)


PS: The seated Conan and wife are metal Reaper miniatures and will be my coach and first assistent. The prepainted plastic woman to the right is from HeroClix and is the second assistent coach.

Give or take 10 years ago I played my first Blood Bowl (Third Edition) demo match. I've been collecting bits and scraps of the game since then. Now that my game is complete, it's time to learn and play!



Handbook ready, two teams ready, replacement D6's and D8 ready, DIY throwing chart ready, playmat ready. LET'S PLAAAAAAY!



The Lizardmen kicked off and the Orcs picked up the ball and threw it far left. Unfortunatelly the Orc Blitzer didn't catch the ball and it ended up out of the pitch.



After the throw in by the (un)friendly crowd, a Skink play picked up the ball and blitzed away like lightning. Supported by a heavy Kroxigor that blocked a lot of Orcs he ran for it.



But one Orc stood in it's way. "Y'er goin nowhere reptile!" The poor Skink was blocked and the ball recovered by the Orc team. They made a run for a touchdown on the left flank but one long bomb pass didn't go well and it was the end of the first half. 0-0. Undecided! (Because I quit the game after this. I feel acquainted enough with the rules to start demoing it to friends.)


PS: The gaming mat is from http://www.blockhaus82.com .

From time to time I need a break. Away from WFB, Epic and Necromunda. Well, Blood Bowl is a pleasant distraction from the usual set of miniatures I'm working on.

I don't want to spend too much money on Blood Bowl (Third Edition) teams. Blood Bowl is not expensive if you're only buying one team. You can buy one team for around 25,- Euro's. But I do have the tendancy to collect ALL teams, armies, etc...

That's why I scavenged various miniature lots over the years. Now's the time to gather them into playable teams.

First inventory: The Empire.



- 2 Human Catchers @ 140.000 Credits
- 3 Human Blitzers @ 270.000 Credits
- 9 Human Linemen @ 450.000 Credits
- 1 Ogre @ 140.000 Credits
= 1.000.000 Credits --> TEAM ASSEMBLED!

TO DO:
Convert one Ogre from my bits box into a Blood Bowl player. And add a left arm to one of the Catchers.



Second inventory: Orcs.



- 2 Orc Throwers @ 140.000 Credits
- 3 Orc Blitzers @ 240.000 Credits
- 6 Orc Linemen @ 300.000 Credits
- 4 Black Orc Blockers @ 320.000 Credits
= 1.000.000 Credits --> TEAM ASSEMBLED!

TO DO:
I only have 2 official Black Orc Blocker miniatures. For the other two I will be using the first edition Orc players. And I will sell 1 Hobgoblin, 3 Orc Lineman, 1 Orc Thrower and 2 first edition Orc players on eBay.



Third inventory: Dwarfs.



- 7 Dwarf Blockers @ 490.000 Credits
- 1 Deathroller (yesss, I have that one in my collection) @ 160K Credits
- 2 Rerolls @ 80.000 Credits
- 3 Fan Factors @ 30.000 Credits
- 1 Dwarf Runner @ 80.000 Credits
- 2 Blitzers @ 160.000 Credits
= 1.000.000 Credits --> TEAM ASSEMBLED!

TO DO:
Covert 1 Runner and 2 Blitzers from my Mantic Dwarf sprues. I still have plenty of those.

Blood Bowl (Third Edition) is a game I played once, a couple of years ago. I loved it straight away and bought some miniatures and parts here and there over the years. So far I scavenged Skaven, Dwarf, Wood Elf, Lizardmen, Chaos en Orc teams.
Now it's time to start putting the teams together!

My first team is 100% custom. Minor conversions save me a lot of money, yet still granting all the fun of playing the game.



There are 8 plastic Skinks (with weapons removed) and 4 Saurus players with Space Marine shoulder pads. The color scheme is turquoise blue with red as detail color.



This Kroxigor is an old metal Harlequin miniature. I added some plastic football "gloves" from the Warhammer Ogre sprues.



Cold-blooded Carnage! Lizardmen for the win!
