Undead Tournament Roster Finished

It's been a couple of months since the Danish Open 2014 took place. The weather was very sunny for the whole weekend and as such perfect for sitting indoors and playing boardgames.

I ended up with a 3-1-2 record which was okay given the circumstances. My first match was against an orc team which totally destroyed my team giving me no chance at all and leaving me with a 0-2 loss in my opening match.

Next match was against wood elves. It ended with a 2-2 draw which was a little bit disappointing.

From that point it went a lot better though and the next three matches against orcs, norse and nurgle teams all ended with wins for the undead.

I ended up losing my last match to a very well coached chaos pact team, but it could have gone both ways really.

Overall it was a very fun weekend and a chance to touch base with old friends.

    I managed to finish the 12 man roster before the event and the latest batch includes the second mummy, the last two ghouls and another zombie.

    The mummy is a conversion. I green stuffed a shoulder pad, a helmet and a jersey (which is not really visible in the picture)

    Both ghouls have had shoulder pads green stuffed onto them as well. Number 5 is an old AD&D ghoul while number 8 is from the Night Horrors range.

    The skaven zombie is simply a 1st edition skaven painted in a sick fleshtone.

    Undead Reinforcements

    Danish Open 2014 is getting closer and I'm determined to play my undead team at the tournament so I have been painting a lot lately.

    The hafling zombie is a slightly modified Blood Bowl halfling. I know that technically you can't raise halflings, but the race makes no difference to the game since all zombies have the same stats.

    The unlucky elf is a converted Blood Bowl elf lineman with his legs removed. I used the legs from an old ghoul/zombie instead.

    The human zombie wasn't modified in any way.

    The ghouls are both from the range of AD&D miniatures that Citadel produced for a short while. They have both received shoulder pads sculpted in Green Stuff.

    Right now I'm working on a skaven zombie and another ghoul and hopefully they will all be ready in time for the tournament. Maybe I'll see you there?

    Undead Blood Bowl Wight

    Just a quick update. I've painted up the second wight for my undead Blood Bowl team. Again a ghost from the old Citadel Miniatures night horrors range.

    It's becoming more and more clear to me how difficult it is to paint black well. I think I will try to use a lighter highlight color on the edges of the black areas on future models.

    Bringing the lead to life

    I'm a huge fan of the board game Blood Bowl which I have been playing on and off since 2nd edition of the game released back in the 80s. The game has evolved a lot over the last 25 years, but the miniatures from back then remain my favorites.

    Regrettably Games Workshop never released a complete undead team during the 'Golden Age' and the 3rd edition of the team has never really appealed to me. That means you'll have to be creative if you want a 2nd edition undead team.

    Creative is exactly what Steve Mussared was when he created his legendary Golden Demon winning team Nuffle's Nightmares. Ever since I, as a boy, first saw the team in the book Fantasy Miniatures from 1989 I have wanted a team like that. The wacky color scheme, the excellent choice of miniatures, the subtle conversions and Steve's extraordinary painting skill all did it for me.

    I've decided to recreate the team with my own touch and the first two players are ready to take the field.
