Workbench Progress - Wolf Scouts

Hello again, my Space Wolves are almost fully painted again after the changes I made when 8th Edition dropped and today I am showing off my new Plasma Wolf Scouts.

I have used Wolf Scouts before but they were either all Snipers or Boltguns. 

With the changes to how Wolf Scout are now able to deploy I decided that loads of Plasma work best when using outflank.  Teamed with some close combat weapons these guys can also launcher a fairly effective charge.

The Wolf Scout Pack Leader is armed with a Plasma Pistol and Chainsword.

The Wolf Guard Pack Leader has two attacks base and a Combi-Plasma and with Power Armour he offers a little more damage tanking potential.

Obviously I went with a magnetised Plasma Gun as the special weapon option.

Again with the Plasma Pistol.

And finally a couple of close combat scouts who can die first once they pack starts to take some heat.

Well thats it for now, thanks for reading and please leave any comments in the comments section down below and please do check back soon for more updates.

Workbench Progress - Griff Oberwald

Greetings internet, its been a while since my last post thanks to the release of Warhammer 40,000 8th Edition.  I have been working hard on my Space Wolves to bring about a list that I am happy with and to get the new units painted.  It will be another few weeks before my Space Wolves are finished and ready to show off so in the meantime lets take a look at Blood Bowl's Star Player Griff Oberwald.

I have almost completed my games for our local season two Blood Bowl league, thanks to me managing to keep my team super lean I found I needed a Star Player to sink all of my inducements into and Griff was the obvious choice.

I do also plan to pick up The Mighty Zug but at 320,000 gold Griff  is enough of a money pit to give me a power boost late league.

I have also been using Karla Von Kill but as there is no model for her yet so I have been using a 3rd party miniature.

There was no way I was going to build Griff without his helmet, I am old school like that so I kept it classic and painted him in the Reikland Reavers colours.

This model went together like a dream and apart from a small pin hole in the left elbow and a slight cleanup needed on the ball it was all fine with a high level of detail.

The Reikland Reavers kit is very striking indeed and makes Griff really stand out on the field when used along side my Marauders.

I kept the striped trousers theme the same as my Marauders, some people don't like the stripes but I have always liked them I just couldn't paint stripes 25 years ago.

With the number 15 and some base detailing added he is ready to take to the field for the win.

Workbench Progress - Human Blood Bowl Team Marauders

Hey there, Like so may others I've been treading water waiting for Games Workshops 8th edition of Warhammer 40k to land.  I have been trying to find other projects to work on, some related to info gleaned from 8th edition rumours and other not so much.  I have spent the last month working on a Human Blood Bowl team which I plan to use during a season 2 league at my FLGS. 

Now before we go on I must first credit the inspiration for this team, I saw a few images online which lead me to the Mengel Miniatures YouTube channel who had painted a wicked Marauders team.  I fell in love with the tactical swat team style look crossed with the classic striped trousers and knew right away that I had to have this team in my life.  

I reached out to just about everyone I know within the hobby for enough models to make this team and before long I have twice as much stuff as I needed "thanks everyone" then I ordered an Ogre to complete the set.

Well I am not going to rattle on about how I painted them, I will let the YouTube video handle all that for me, so without further ado on with the pictures.

I was feeling super pleased with my efforts during this project, managing to paint four of the same Blitzer model was a pain in the butt and I cursed GW when I saw this image of  the forthcoming Human booster pack.

Bellow is a link to the previous Human Team that I posted.

Well thats it for now, thanks for reading and please leave any comments in the comments section down below and please do check back soon for more updates.
