t realise that Ive been a member for this long but I think I must
ve seen Xanders plog on Warseer and joined because of it.<br><br>Anyways. I primarily play three games these days, 40K, FoW and BB (in that order). Did play FB for 11-13 odd years or something so Ive played against CD when they had a valid list and support for their minis.
Now when I started with BB I made two teams. One ork (longtime greenskin player) and a chaos dwarf team which you can see more of here:
Anarchy Blood Bowl League
By clicking on the team roster and then on a player you can see pics of them. Not going to bin that team but they
ve played their part imo.<br><br>Now this will be the "re-boot" model-wise and Ill make a new team named the Z-N Juggernauts as I think that CDs are a great team!
Lots of text so far so here
s a pic: <br><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z199/tomkristianse/ChaosDwarfBlocker1-1.jpg"> <br>I wanted them more real-sized this time but looking like they could move. I chopped and trimmed down a Catachan, trimmed a chaos warrior helmet (please ignore the pink) and used Flagellant arms. <br>Scalewise I think theyre spot on! Next will be greenstuffing shoulder, elbow and knee pads as well a beard and other details.
Hope you like so far so stay tuned!
PS: never got an answer if it was okey to put a BB log in here so if it`s wrong please move it to the right location
I think it’s ok to post Bloob bowl here… but I’m not a mod
Nice conversion. I’d like to see next steps. Just remember to give him a nice dwarf beard
Some great work Red Skullz, great idea using the Catachan model its worked really well, i look forward to seeing more of your team as you build them have you thought how you will do the hobgoblins ?
BB blogs are fine, especially Chaos Dwar related ones. :cheers
That’s a really original take on a Chaos Dwarf blood bowl player though I must say. I’m really looking forward to seeing this project progress.
ll take pics as I do this stage by stage so no worry :) Ive got some nice ideas for a team captain as well, helmetless so should be a challenge!
I think I
ve found legs and torso that should work well, but I need to blue-tac and try it out before I can say more. The hobgoblins are my biggest challenge as Ive got great solutions for the mino and bullcentaurs
For hobgoblins you could go the skaven way. I’ve seen wonder in this website with the use of skaven plastic sprues…
I thought I`d once again do it from my 40k bitz for general body-shape. I want my team to look like they could move properly and you need pants for that imo, lol! The hobgoblins will get helmets with mouthguards as well.
But in general, are hobgoblins more or less the same height as a human or are they in-between a gobbo and a humie?
Got down with some greenstuff:
Looks really rough on the pic, a lot more than IRL…
I`m using one of the new plastic minotaurs for this team as I actually like the models (heard a lot of people not liking them). Hence going for this type of pads to try and keep a relative uniform look on the team. All in all things are shaping up as I want them to, just need to squeese in a beard there or just leave them shaven? Nah, need beards
Found a way of integrating teeth and beard which works quite well. Think I need to do something with the nose area on the helmet since CDs has quite pointy noses.
After some hours of sleep I`ve decided to let the helmet be open so that the nose sticks out, then make a mouthguard giving it all a more footbally look.
First off, small correction on the name as I wrote it wrong the first time. The team is called Z-N Juggernauts as in Zharr-Naggrund (sp?) Juggernauts.
s a pic with added rivets, nose and more teeth: <br><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z199/tomkristianse/ChaosDwarfBlocker1-4.jpg"><br><br>I thought I could squeese in a mouthguard as well but now Im really uncertain on if it will lift the model or obscure the lower jaw completely…thoughts anyone?
Some minor updates done:
Detailed the helmet more around the nose and eyeslit area. Also added rivets in a mohawk style on top which turned out pretty cool.
For the braid I used a knife to try and get it to look like hairstrands.
I still need to go over and clean up stuff here and there, might need to smooth some areas a bit more with some greenstuff as well. The last thing and the most annoying with the mini is that he tilts backwards which looks really unnatural…I need to do something with that before I basecoat him!
He is looking great, keep up the great work

Back again! Been busy with work lately but now I have 11 weeks of being daddy daycare so should be able to pick up the pace hobby-wise
While I was away on work I decided to spike up the first blocker more, started with the mohawk on the helmet but I added a few more here and there:
I also tilted him forwards a tad so it all looks a bit more natural. I like how it
s shaping up so after smoothing out a few things like the sides on the helmet I should be able to paint him up.<br><br>Other than that I got a few more blockers on the way: <br><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z199/tomkristianse/ChaosDwarfBlocker23.jpg"> <br>It all takes quite a lot of time, waiting that is. Need to do the greenstuffing in steps so I dont mess everything up.
Once again great work Red Skullz they are looking great, looking forward to seeing what colour scheme you go with
Reminds me of the good old 1980’s wrestling I cant quite remember the name of the tag team … Love them !
Thanks mate! I plan on dark red and black. My other two main BB teams are variations of red and white so I thoght I
d darken it all up a bit with these guys :)<br><br>@Thorne: <br>Demolition you mean ;) Thanks, hadnt thought of them or maybe I did indirectly, lol!
s some WiPs of where Im at:
Nr.1 from the left is a tad nurgle inspired with the cyclopean eye on the helmet. I`m thinking of adding spikes all over the helmet like that guy in Slipknot.
In the middle we have the team captain. Gave him some more braided beard as it suits his stature. Same with the extra large fangs he has. Still need a mustache.
Nr.3 on the far right is the one closest to basecoating. Really like that spiky thing on his gauntlet, looks nasty!
