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.

Budget Blood Bowl

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.

From gallery of toco

- 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!

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.

From gallery of toco

- 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!

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.

From gallery of toco

- 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!

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