Blood Bowl - Halfling Team Big Build TO DONE!

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer the bases of my Halfling #BloodBowl team. The process is almost identical to my Red Planet BASE, except with my Burnt Umber as a starting point. Then with bonewhite mixed in.

Actually just two successive Burnt Umber highlights gave a pretty good soil colour and I could have left it with that.  I may even look into some meadow flowers! I'm also concerned because having just discovered I'm unlikely to get the Vermillion Craft Acrylic from Home & Bargains the Burnt Umber is also absent and I only have half a tube of that left. It's been so useful in my weathering effects, it beggars belief that such a standard artist colour is no longer available. I'll look into alternatives.

 I'd primed them Red Oxide, and again used a kitchen roll tube to mask the model to get a [mostly] black base. They will be grassed over mostly, so it doesn't have to be perfect.

Here's where I started to block in some skintones. Again, I want diversity in my team but I'm not sure if I've seen halflings that aren't white. 

They're such characterful models I wanted some additional diversity to help identify different players.

But I haven't painted white characters for a long while so I thought I'd use this as an opportunity to explore that facet. Perhaps lift my game with rosy cheeks and florid noses from all their feasting. it should be fun.

For now I get my Great Big Granite Big Build Basing stamp of approval.


  1. Nice to see a change from 40K stuff. We're playing a recurring league on BB2 on the PC at the moment. Great game

    1. Hope you're well Alex, I'm glad you like it. I've noticed that my Blood Bowl posts are usually the least popular. Not that I'm chasing numbers, it would never stop me featuring anything I do but it's interesting to note. Surprisingly I find my Adeptus Titanicus posts are some of my most popular, outside of a finished TO DONE! post.
