Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

The Green Machine

Hello chaps. Sorry for the long silence but I've been busy working on my lastest project; another Bloodbowl team. Ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to present...


Here's the full team (sans one Troll which is still under construction due to a drill related accident):


These are Willy Miniatures; quite nice castings (just a couple of miscasts and mold lines) but absolutely gorgeous sculpts. Bags of character. Here's the main players:



and here's the Specials. The team comes with a Ball and Chain Looney which was all well and good, but I had a spare Kev Adams fanatic kicking around and, well... it'd be rude not to. 


And here's the Big Guy.


Finally, I would like to introduce yourself to the Manager of my various teams. This is Sven Gorcan Erikson:


You might recognise the basis of this conversion. His twin can be seen on the left here. I happened to have a spare.


The hair, magnificent sideburns and sheepskin were added with some judicious greenstuffing - as was the chunk gold jewelry and cigar. 



So next up is some more gaming. On the horizon is some more Wild West and Bloodbowl. Painting wise, I think next up might be some adventures in Middle Earth...

    1. I have no illusions about winning with these; I'm operating on the old Warhammer Fantasy Battle approach that I will lose but have a lot of fun along the way.
