Blood Bowl Wood Elves

Citadel Miniatures 2nd edition Blood Bowl elves painted as Galadrieth Gladiators. These elves are among my favourite miniatures ever produced by Games Workshop. They were sculpted by the legendary Jes Goodwin and have a distinct eighties feel to them.

The wardancer (or blitzer as they were known in 2nd edition) with the hockey mask is my absolute favourite Blood Bowl miniature ever produced. Unlike most of his teammates he looks tough and like he really means business. If memory serves me correctly in the old ruleset elf blitzers recovered faster from being knocked out than the rest of the elf players.

When I painted this team I took great care to make each miniature look slightly different from each other so the team as a whole would be more visually interesting.

Necromunda Spyrer Gang

Visiting my parents' house during christmas gave me the opportunity of digging through some old miniatures. One of the finds were these Necromunda Spyre hunters that I painted during the summer of 1996 when I was in high school and still living at home.

Blood Bowl remains my alltime favourite Games Workshop game, but we had a great time playing Necromunda as well. We played it at home, in the local store and at tournaments and the games were mostly quick and enjoyable.

The whole background history of gangs fighting for territory in an abandoned industrial environment below a metropolis was unbelievably cool I used to think. The spyrers shown here were included in a supplement later on. They represented rich kids from the city descending to the Underhive to prey on the regular gangs as some kind of ritual. Their addition to the game made the already excellent fluff even more colourful.

I think most people would agree that the green bases of the 'Eavy Metal team look well out of place in the Underhive so I went for a more industrial feel to mine adding bits and pieces from my spares box.

I have 7 out of 8 spyrers and I am tempted to paint up the rest of them just for fun.

I also found my old Delaque gang. Here's a preview:
