The Great Build part 3 - TO DONE! Blood Bowl Orks and Humans

With my Christmas copy of Blood Bowl I thought I'd crack on and base the Humans and Orks. Now this is definitely a distraction task, not a diversionary task. You see a diversionary task is still something that gets you were you want to be, it may be round the houses but you end up in the right place and things that are not priority but on my To Do List are diversionary. Of course the Blood Bowl guys never even figured so it's just a distraction from those tasks that are on it. That said it's building mojo so can't be all bad.

The Orks too got a sand bath and all the bases got done, It was quite a session to do all 24 bases in one night over the festive period.

But they're all pretty cool and getting them done is another achievement in the Great Build at the very least. I'll get them primed and based asap just so I don't feel compelled as much to do any more [though I probably will!]. 

So here's my Big Purple Great Build Stamp of Approval for the Human Team...

and another one for the Orks.


  1. Well, that's me demoralised then. I'm sure my Humans will look poor in comparison I'm sure.

  2. I really like the human player models. I want 30 of them for conversion purposes and use in 40k... I hope they release them soon as a separate box set.

    That said I'm really looking forward to seeing your paint job on these chaps, the Orks too look great and I've heard nothing but good stuff about the game :)

    1. They had mock up boxes for the humans at the open day this last weekend, so they are probably coming out soon

  3. Looking good! Give yourself an extra stamp.

  4. Good job Dave nice to see them purple stamps!

  5. Good stuff! I've been bitten by the blood bowl bug, finished up my spare models. Didn't buy the new plastics so i do feel a bit left out, but on the other hand all my wood elves are now painted!
