Blood Bowl Humans - Part 2 skin and trousers

After debating what colour to paint these guys for a few evenings, I settled on something easily recognizable. Google NFL uniforms and the vast majority wear a white colour pant. While these aren't exactly comparable (their armour is not hidden under a jersey) I felt the white pant/shirt would provide the most stark contrast and easily recognizable figures compared to real world. I didn't want these to look like space marines after all. So with my trusty airbrush I sprayed pallid wych flesh and skull white. A watered down gryphonne sepia followed by a skull white drybrush/highlight was then added.

Blood Bowl Humans - Part 1 conversions

Now that everything is together and basecoated, here are a few of the more interesting models. For the blitzers (only 2 in the starter) I needed to make 2 more. The easiest way was to use existing models in the box so I looked through my bitz box and found 3 headdresses from Secret Weapon Miniatures. I don't know where the others went so I couldn't make 4 exact; luckily I had another from the centurion box. Anyway I cut the eagle off of the 2 stock blitzers and replaced them with plumage so they'll stick out on the field.

Blood Bowl Ogre Helmet

I'm going to start a little break from Kingdom Death with a Blood Bowl segment.  My wife bought me the Blood Bowl starter for Christmas and I knew I needed an ogre. I instantly ordered an ogre body from ebay without waiting for GW to announce making a new ogre (I'd rather have one I made anyway; it's more special haha).

Anyway to match the box set guys, I needed to take the bald ogre head, carve off his Mongolian-esque moustache and add a helmet with wings. I took those red wings from an Aquila that was mounted to the back of a Space Hulk terminator. The rest is plasticard cut to fit. I toyed with adding more to his grill but it took away from the face. Also he's an ogre; how much protection does he need?

Kingdom Death - Tyrant Painted

Here's my finished Tyrant for the People of the Stars Campaign! He promises to be a very unique fight compared to the other nemesis encounters.  It's also a nice change to not have the butcher and king's henchmen breathing down your settlement's neck.

Kingdom Death - Tyrant WIP 2

More work on the tyrant and moving on to the robes.  I still have to work on the thing attached to his back (I forget what it's called) and his forehead tattoos.

Kingdom Death - Rawhide and Manhunter Gear

Firstly, I  noticed that the Manhunter sprue had two spare hats for survivors.  In addition, the only rawhide character I'd build uses a shield and axe; which in hindsight we never equip our survivors with in that combination.  Usually we do go with a rawhide set though on someone who doesn't get many weapons and is a utility character, using the rawhide headband ability to control the monster's actions.  So I decided to make an Indiana Jones inspired survivor.  Since she just has a whip and a pistol she won't be confused or look out of place as a stand in for any other weapon combination and should see lots of table time.

Kingdom Death - Tyrant WIP

Here's the start of my Dragon King Tyrant, the last 'needed' model for the People of the Stars campaign.  I went with yellow eyes to match my Dragon King and the inner glow.

Kingdom Death - Dragon King Painted

Dragon King Expansion
 Dragon King is finished!  Such a huge beast of a model.  I think my favourite part oddly is the underbelly...

Kingdom Death - Dragon King WIP 3

This model is really big so it's slow going!  Anyway here's a huge update with the skin, underbelly and wings much more progressed!  I wanted the wings to look like stretched out skin and to contrast heavily with the muted green; a real lizard look.  Next up are the horns, chest glow, and eyes.
