Crooked Jaw Tribe - Orc Blood Bowl

Post  ScottRadom on Mon Dec 05, 2016 9:47 pm

I picked up the new set.  Love the new Orc mini's!  So I'm gonna try to get this team up and painted.  All the mini's are assembled and I picked turquoise as a main colour with a lot of brown tossed in.  Here's the first Lineman...






So There's Manny "the Franchise" Uzzum.  Get him up front and you can build a whole drive around him baby!

This guy is great Scott. The colour scheme is right in your wheelhouse and you nailed it. The metals are great and I really like the paint chips on the turquoise parts. The only thing that looks a bit off to me is the colour you chose for the fingernails on the raised hand. Maybe it is just a trick of the camera and it looks better in the hand but they look very blue.

Could be the lighting as it looks different than the first player, but that is one of my favorite figs I've ever seen you do. Can't put my finger on it but I REALLY like how that turned out. Super well done.

TY Don, I imagine it's just the lighting that's made a difference. The two mini's are pretty much the same. I might take more pictures like this and see if it makes a difference. I had a pretty good stretch to paint over Christmas and New years and I am almost done the third player, I'll take a group shot in a couple days and slap them shits up here.

It was Kieran's idea to trace the black numbers with white to make them stand out. It was a good call and I wouldn't have thought of it.

I like that they keep the numbers low, less thinking for single digits.

I'm just painting them as they come, up to 16 players per team, only 11 on the field at a time. Back in the day I had my players numbered more like conventional double digit action but the trend is to have your team number 1-16. The game even comes with a 16 sided die for randomizing things.

They look amazing Scott, but we all knew they would. It just occurred to me - shouldn't the bases be a football field?

The game comes with a double sided board. the orc one is pretty much dirt. Other teams will likely get their own boards like the ever popular astrogranite dwarf field and the lush green elf pitch.

That's going to be a cool-looking team Scott, I echo Don's comment about the bases.  Maybe there should be a line painted across a few of them?  I don't know, maybe that would end up looking weird in actual gameplay but I think it would look cool, especially if it went up and through a grass tuft.

There are lines here and there. You can see it on the base of the thrower and there is a line behind the black orc.
