I’ve seen the future, and it’s pink

Nothing awakens the desire to paint better than the purchase of manky old lead, this time in the form of some Pink Horrors.  Said desire of course must be harnessed quickly before it fades – and these blighters end up on the pile.

I’ve long harboured a desire to use Kev Adam’s and Trish Morrison’s Horrors on the Blood Bowl pitch.  Some Quebecois chap put together a Slann team out of them (along with a Lord of Change) some years back, and with this being the internet I thought I’d slavishly copy him.

I have also home-brewed a roster, (which I’ll share in time) for a Daemons of Tzeentch team that I plan to run in a fun, unscheduled league against other people’s creations in a few months.  I feel like the roster is a bit similar to Underworld on the power curve, slightly more resilient than the Skaven/Rat combo but not nearly as bashy.

I actually have a huge swag of old Horrors in a box somewhere, these pinks are the cherry on the top.  Now, to the bath with you!

Blood Bowl 2nd Edition (well mostly) Orc Team

A bold serving indeed of Kev’ Adams finest fare. Citadel’s other best sculptor of the late 80s turned out these chaps in May of 1988, with the exception of the troll – I don’t actually know who sculpted him, but he fits thematically with the team.  I painted these guys in late 2009, early 2010.  Still old school style painting, no attempt at any sort of light-source highlighting.

I take this team to interstate tournaments mostly, where I pay hundreds of dollars to fly to some exotic location (Canberra mostly) and sit in a room for two days and get beat by other 30-something nerds.  Orcs are good in tourneys, especially when they’re being played by someone who is not me.

They’ve had one good run at Cancon in 2010, where I must have lucked into the weakest schedule ever after a rough start and ended up in the top 20.  I’d like to think I’m a better player than I was then, but results speak otherwise.
