Finally, after 15+ years, I’ve painted this Lizardman Blood Bowl team. Lord, that was a long time to own a team and not have it painted. I don’t know why – I like these models – retro as they are, but I have a long standing painter’s block with Lizardmen in Blood Bowl and Fantasy.
These guys have really interesting skull helmets for most players, as well as ornately cast shoulder pads. I’ve emphasized the brass and bone as much as possible, and I think they look really barbaric. When painting them, I went for blocky highlights and unsubtle edges. This will make them stand out on the Blood Bowl pitch.

Time to paint: 10hrs
Yes, it’s been slow on the gaming front. I’ve had to spend a lot more time lately on my company sales, paperwork, etc. Then there’s the 2 days in hospital with a kidney stone (last week). Blah blah blah…
Uncharted Seas arrived through the mail Friday. Yay! The miniatures are a lot bigger than I thought, and I really like the rulebook. Overall, a very solid product. And, to add icing to it all, I won £100 of free Spartan Games products because I pre-ordered and was entered into a draw. Again – yay!
Although I’m not doing much painting, I am starting prototype paint schemes on my Blood Bowl minis. The models above have been basecoated with paint, then washed with the new GW washes – mud for the Orc (over PP Gun Corps Brown) and red for the Humie (over PP Khador Red Highlight). I love these washes – while still wet, they look disappointing, like there’s not enough on the model. But when they dry, they’re very convincing, and always dry matte! No Dullcote needed here.
