January is Blood Bowl month!

Greetings sports-fans, I'm Hergar Thrundson. It's Blood Bowl season across the Old World and we're joined live by our team at the Dreiflussen Stadium as we prepare for the Mad-Cap Cup. I'm joined by Zog Nosebiter to give us some updates on the weather, the turn out, and this season's tips. Over to you, Zog... you filthy greenskin...

First cab off the rank for this year's projects is the low-down, dirty ballgame commonly known as Blood Bowl. This is one that has been shelved for a long time. There will be some pics soon, but a quick report on what's been happening so far is here:

One scratch-built pitch, completed in 2008...

In Progress:
Painting and converting (and naming!) my Norse team
Scratchbuild a scoreboard
Converting and painting a referee
Painting and converting the Sylvania Shamblers 

Not started yet:
Assistant coaches and support staff
Scratchbuild dugouts 

Other stuff:
Painting a Chaos Dwarf team
Painting and converting Chaos team
Painting and converting an Orc team

Speaking of Undead, here's some pics of the minis I converted a while ago... give a wild, frothing cheer for the Sylvania Shamblers!

The top figure is a converted Mummy from Hero Quest using Ork, Chaos Warrior and other bits and pieces. The bottom row are four Skeleton linemen from a mix of plastic parts, and the bottom figure is a Wight made from an old Chaos Warrior and a Zombie head.

They played one game and won. I would like to come back and finish this team off next. I'm not too fussed about the "Other stuff" section but it's there if I want something to do before the month ends!

In the next post you will be able to read about the results of the most recent games in the Mad-Cap Cup.

This is shaping up to be a real bone-breaker of a season! I'm Hergar Thrundson, signing off.
