I decided one of these mini-projects would be to pick up some work on some long-neglected Blood Bowl models, starting with an Orc Team. I'd tentatively named them "Green Dark Raiders" just for the sake of the pun on the English team "Queens Park Rangers" until my friend Mike came up with a much better pun. There's a lower-league team in the English soccer league called "Accrington Stanley". Hereinafter, this team shall be known as "Orcrington Stabley". Thanks, Mike!
I know Blood Bowl teams' armour is normally quite brightly coloured, but I deliberately avoided going that way with this team. There were two main reasons:
- They're Orcs and don't want anything to do with all that pretty-shiny, humie-girly twaddle,
- I enjoy painting Orc skin-tones and I wanted the skin to be the most eye-catching thing about this team.
The Whole Team:
|Most of these models come from the 3rd Edition of the game (circa 1994) which I picked up from Warhammer World in about 2006 where it was still on sale as a "Specialist Game".|
|The model front-and-centre is a 1st Edition Blood Bowl metal model. The front-right model comes from a GW game called "Kerrunch" which was released as a sort of "rules-light, budget intro" to their games in 1991.|
