Orc 1999

This is my first effort at painting a team. 'Orc 1999' based on the orange of 'Space 1999' with player names all from the show. They were used in my first local blood bowl season.


Here is a link to all the pictures.

The Challenge

As well as my usual posts, I am undertaking a challenge. The challenge is to see if I can get a decent Blood Bowl setup for around £30, I picked that amount as that is the price of a single team and under the cost of the box set by £20.

So the requirements:
Two painted teams, and all the things you need to play a game of Blood Bowl.

The restrictions:
I will not buy used items, so no buying a cheap team from eBay. This is a real option when buying teams but I wanted to create teams that someone else can repeat if they wanted too.
The teams and setup need to be good enough so they wouldn't embarrass someone who wanted to go to tournaments. So no bit’s of paper to represent player’s.
Saying that I will not include the price of glue, paper, printing and delivery but will include paints and paint.

The plan:
I want to blog the process of doing this and include links to what I buy, so feel to comment and give suggestions.

Welcome to Triple Skull a blog about all things Blood Bowl. The idea of this blog is to follow me on my travels through the hobby. I plan to cover everything from creating rosters, teams, painting and electronic resources.

I used to run a blog called OneShard until I rolled a triple skull and fell into the grasps of Blood Bowl.

5 months later I have taken part in our first private season with a group of friends. Purchased around 4 teams, painted 7 complete teams and attended two Blood Bowl tournaments in Manchester and York.
