Orc Blood Bowl Team: Work In Progress

Since my most recent post, I have been working on both an Orc Blood Bowl team and 5 Stormcast Eternals from the Storm of Sigmar set.

Both are progressing nicely, however, moving on to a whole Blood Bowl team soon after completing a Blood Bowl team wasn't a great idea! Batch painting 12 mini's at a time isn't a huge amount of fun... that's why I'm splitting my time between 2 different 'units'.

So far, for this set of models, I have base coated the skin with Waaagh! Flesh (what else?), blocked in the red of their kit with Mephiston Red and base coated the base with Mournfang Brown.

I want to get all the base coats completed as quickly as possible as the thin coat of the Waaagh! Flesh, applied via airbrush, is beginning to chip off. Once the base colours have been applied I will set the decals before applying gloss varnish in preparation for shading the models with gloss shades. After that I'll matte the models down, tidy up the shading and apply the highlights.

My aim is to get this unit complete before September... so loads of time 😀
