From PaulS: Foul! (10 Points)

'Tis the season to be festive and giving... and all that sort of stuff. So what better way to start the competition with the first of three sets of presents for friends this year. Let us hope that they do not get in the way of Tanks!

The first one up is for a fried that I've worked with for over half my life, across multiple companies. He has taken his first steps into Blood Bowl with the re-release, so what better present than some of the new Forge World refs? We have Dribbler, the halfling and Sneaky McSneakypants the Gobbo (my names).  Both are really characterful models that are great fun to paint. There is plenty of detail, even if they are overly large in places (just look at Dribbler's hands!!)


Dribbler seems to be taking some time out to have a Subway mid game... which is cruel as I now really really want one for lunch. Ah well, pork pie and homemade shortbread will have to do while painting resumes.


So why is Sneaky McSneakypants called that? Just look at that bag (and back pocket) full of bribes! I'm not sure he has space for any more...


_____________________________

Lovely work Paul. I had no idea that Forge World was doing Blood Bowl figures - these are wonderful. Your work on Dribbler's sub sandwich is so good that I'm getting hungry myself and I like McSneakypants' nose (and notice his hat has a longer bill to help shade it).  I'm sure your friend will be delighted with these gifts. 

Well done!

    1. I'm struggling to keep out of Blood Bowl. There is talk of starting an office league, which is making things much harder!

  3. Thanks Curt! Forge World will be doing all of the non-plastic kits for Blood Bowl, such as star players, larger creatures, rarer teams and conversion kits to customise the plastic teams

    1. At least you know where you stand with him. Preferably a looooooong way away, with your back and wallet to the wall

  10. I think we'll be seeing a fair bit of BB. If this is any guide it's going to be hard to pick the best!
