Life!!! It keeps happening without me!! I am slowly pulling myself up and out of Real Life(TM) and back into a world of tiny men (and women, and monsters, and... you get the idea) - I hope to have more meaningful content here soon. In the meantime...
Behold my Vampire Blood Bowl team! I will be playing them tomorrow (and Sunday) at the 7th annual Zlurpee Bowl! Since regular BB tournaments just aren't hard enough for me I have decided to play one of the teams listed in the rules pack - FTLOTG (For The Love Of The Game) Vampiire. That's right... two Vampires and ten Thralls will go head to head with all comers in a blood filled (probably the Thrall's) weekend of BB matches. We'll see how much love I have for the game after this one is over...
I assembled and painted this team in just under 5 days. I started with a unit of 10 Vampire Counts Ghouls I had sitting around collecting dust and thought... could I make a Vampire team out of these guys? After looking at the GW Vampire models and coming back across the Strigoi models it all came together. Beastial vampire blood sucking dudes with smaller crazy blood crazy dudes all on the pitch to drink a bowl full of bloody balls!
I only needed two vampires for this team so that's all I managed to get done! The look suitably feral and gruesome I think. The skin came out exactly like I wanted so I am pretty happy with that.
Next up was the Ghoul crew playing the part of Thralls. Low armor average BB players with a penchant for violence... sounds about right.
I have their bases painted with the skill I have given them for my tournament roster. I discovered later that I would probably have changed a few skills but I didn't have time to go back and paint the bases and skill text again before leaving for the event. Oh well!
So that's it! Now I am off to Indiana with some Blood Bowl cohorts for a weekend of boardgames, beer, and blood (on the pitch only please). Here's hoping I come back with some good tales and ideas for the next time around.
