Howdy Blood Bowl fans. One of my FAVOURITE things to do in this hobby is to build BB teams between commissions. I’ve gotten into the habit of buying a few fantasy box sets and indulging myself by seeing if I can come up with a decent team from the components. I’ve been playing a lot of High Elves on the PC game of late but have never owned an actually HE team, (I tend towards woodies – no double entendres please…) so decided to have a crack at one. I started by using Pheonix Guard (I think thats what they’re called) to make some linemen as a bit of a warm up, then 4 catchers, 2 throwers and 2 Blitzers. I bought some Dragon Rider heads for the blitzers – an expensive addition in the scheme of things, but its my hobby so I can justify it. I won’t paint these for a while, hence the WIP shots, more after the jump.
Blitzers & Throwers
Any other big BB fans out there?

Looking very good. Blood Bowl is the only GW game I still play so it's nice to see it on the blog 🙂
I made a high elf team a few years back, used guardian and dire avenger legs with the elf torsos, looked quite good when all painted up.
I sold them on for a nice profit too!

Thats the second square base comment, might have to relent and go round or risk a lynch mob!!
Square bases, capes… great "army"! 😉
Drill the hands a bit, so they don't look flat.
Can we see more of this? How are they going now? also would love more info about the kits used.
Looks great, keep up the good work

I love Blood Bowl, these look really nice too man! The only thing I dislike is the square bases. I used to have a Dark Elf team and used square bases, and they were a bit awkward at times. But thats a minor personal gripe, otherwise they're fantastic! Really good posing too, well done! Look forward to seeing them painted.
