Big Grumpy Monsters

So for my return to Blood Bowl I wanted to make a team I'd never fielded before.  I've always been a big fan of Norse mythology so I decided to go with a Norse team and after a couple of games with them on Cyanide, I found I really liked their play-style.  But I love modelling and wanted to play some real life games so I had to get on with converting a team at some point.

Oddly enough, the first player I started converting was this guy, my Yeti.  He's made completely from scratch out of green stuff and wire and it's been a pleasure creating him.  Progress has slowed a little as I'm a bit apprehensive about the finer details and the hands but I'm happy with how he looks so far.

I want to hug him, and pet him, and call him GRENDEL!

This was my first ever foray into the world of scratch-building models (I've only ever filled in gaps before!) so it's been a test of my skill and patience, but I'm glad I did it.  When he's finished, I'll have a unique Yeti that no one else will have.  He is a little on the large side due to a mathematical error I made in the planning stage but he'll be fine.

This next guy isn't part of the project but he may well be part of the team some day.  He's a model that I used to use as a werewolf in my Von Carstein army (remember when those were legal?).  Well, the Von Carstein army was sold on eBay a long time ago but I found this guy hiding in a drawer at my dad's house.  And I sure am glad he was because I really like him.  He's too big to be a Norse Werewolf outright but would look great as a ST5 werewolf if luck is ever on my side!

And that's all for now folks!  I'm working on some basic Norse positionals so I guess next time I see you I'll show you some progress on them.  Cheers for reading.


  1. I'd use him as an Ulfwerner anwyay, just to scare the opposition!

    1. It's all about the psychological gameplay!

    2. I've never played against a Chaos Pact team but I imagine facing 3 hulking monsters would be a bit daunting! Which is why I built a Khemri team of course, so I could have four of them :-)
