Thought I'd make a bit of effort and try out a scheme on the Wood Elf Blood Bowl team....

The figures are, it pains me to say, quite pants. The one-piece leggings/boots is really lazy imo and really difficult to know how to paint, they could do with taking a leaf out of the Blood Bowl PC Game models which are much better

Anyway, first bash at a Lineman





I wanted to stay away from green, its just too obvious and I really had to distance myself from the green colour scheme on the GW website...

I opted to paint the torso in flesh so that I could get some tattooing in and get a bit of a Celtic Wood Elf feel... rather than yet more non-descript, non-detailed clothing

The tattoos themselves were a little problematic, spirals were quite difficult and any kind of actual shape looked a bit naff. I opted for slashes and lines, which looks a little more american indian, but was easier to paint and looked more convincing. I'm quite looking forward to trying some more, its just a shame the models aren't really sculpted well enough to warrant more time

I'm quite looking forward to painting up a unit of WFB Wardancers though!

Like it!

Yeah, I think avoiding a green colour scheme is a good idea, red and white always looks good for bb teams. Love the tattoos as well, look good.

They look good, mon. You are definitely right about the miniatures being poo. They all have a cartoony look about them. Gary Morley at his best...

I never did get why they would be wearing tights with no boots - look shite.

I reckon you could convert one of these wardancers - which would look great for BB. Make it look like they are using Leap.

Wardancer 1

Wardancer 2

This guy would look pretty cool as well.

By far the best Elven BB team is the plain old Elf one. These were made quite a while after most of the other teams.

Really like the colour scheme - nice to see Elves in something a bit racey.

Love the tatts!

Gotta be honest, I hate the current elves. Look at the new Jordell Freshbreeze - awful. Bring back Jes Goodwin!
