Copper CatchesCopper Catches

This team just has GW miniatures and no converting. Just an idea to create a human team called the Copper Catches with a theme of copper, brown's and orange colours.

The first Dark Elf Blitzer is almost done. She just needs basing, numbering and varnishing. This team will be my first attempt at skin tones so I will follow this guide closely.

Three Projects Part 2: Necromantic

The second team I am putting together is a Necromantic team. I do not have all the miniatures yet, as I still need to decide on what zombies to get. I have the Werewolf’s and Wrights from Willy Miniatures. The Wights come in one piece but the Werewolf’s need to be assembled. They come with arm’s jaw and tail separately and most parts need to be pinned. The flesh golems are from Franarcilla, I loved that a head on each miniature had a football helmet and I am looking forward to painting these.

Both companies don’t have order forms or have check out functionality. But I just sent an email with my order and delivery address and asked for a total cost then sent the paypal payment. Both orders came in around a week and I was impressed with the response and speed of mail from each company. More pictures can be found here.

Three Projects Part 1: Dark Elves

I am putting 3 blood bowl teams together. This is the first. A dark elf team made up from 40k miniatures. The main-stay are Dark Eldar Wyches and my two witch huntes are Lelith Hesperax miniatures. So she wouldn't look too out of place, one is mounted on a willy miniature blood bowl ball, and the other on the head of a black orc. To get the ball and head to stand up enough so Lelith wasn't leaning I have pinned them to the base. I am not very good with green stuff, so the black orc's neck is made of some orc arm so you get to see the muscle.

I have not come up with a name yet but I think the main colour for the team will be a dark navy blue. I'll post more when I am further along painting them.

Human Team War time theme

Here are a few pictures from a human team a friend of mine wanted painting, there are no shoulder pads or helmets. But the positional's are all clearly distinguishable.

Willy miniatures Troll

While at the NAF Championship I bought some miniatures from the guy's from Willy miniature's. I needed the troll for my orc team as the previous troll I was using was to go with my goblin team 'Catchagoogoo'. I thought the previous troll was a little small to go with the orc's. I also bought a werewolf and just ordered some more from them to bulid a necro team (post to come).
