Yup, it’s me. Last year attending a cup in Stockholm me and my fellow blood bowl friends came up with the idea of creating ourselves as star players. We’re such a down to earth couple of nerds… Anyway, since I’m quite tall guy and a teacher with a hang up for Hawaii shirts this old Frankenstein model suited quite well. Notice the physical computations in his hand. And at last, my last name is Grip so Mr Grip sounded like a cool name for a flesh golem star player 🙂
I’ve completed my super star Blitzer with a nice bull skull for the finals this weekend. He looks pimped at least, no problem to see the difference between him and the others with such a gigantic head! I put some grass on the other Goblins as well.
Did the basing on the gobbos today adding even more bright colors to the models. I finished the last lineman as well.
I continued on my Püffendorf Comits team yesterday. A bit tired from the day before I slowly made some progression. I got some paint on a new lineman for my Voodorcs team as well.
… My super star level black orc Oggun. Finally he has reached 76 star player points earned his star status. I’ve finished the details on the model but the base is obviously not ready. I hope to have some time for this tomorrow. It really nice to paint something with more than one layer again 🙂
I’ve painted most parts of Oggun. Some minor details left and the base. Quite a difference in speed compared to dipping 🙂 I’m off to Kenya tomorrow for 2 weeks of working and 1 week’s vacation! Over and out!
Feels like working in slow motion compared to the Empire army. Well, I’m finished with the details now. I magnetized the crown so I can use it as some kind off kill counter 🙂
I found the original head of my black orc blocker Oggun. I found some old but unfortunately dry grey stuff. It was sufficient to fill the gaps though. I still haven’t decided if I’ll go gore the bare head or crown.
I have a black orc blocker approaching star player status. This means he needs a new model. I found these kings of war trolls which looks much like a bigger version of the savage orcs. I had to modify it a bit but I’m not sure about the crown. I noticed I’m out of green stuff so I have some time considering it!
This weekend I’m taking a trip to my hometown. They’ve got a pretty decent wargames store here which I of course supported directly 🙂 I got my hands on a volley gun /rocket battery kit and an engineer. I found it was possible to have both the option of the VG and the RB with just switching the top of the piece. I’ll mostly choose the VG I think but it’s worth having the option. I’ve got some kings of war trolls as well very suitable for my black orc starplayers. They have very similar bodies to my savage orc based Voodorcs so a larger 76+ starplayer point version of my upcoming black orc starplayer will be ready when it’s needed.
