Stoutheart Brewers Update 2
I’ve been hard at work on by Bloodbowl team. The good news is that the first 11 players are actually finished. I’ve still got a ton of work to do, but at least my starting lineup is all painted. That’s a good thing since the league I’m going to be playing in starts this Sunday.
The numbers are 2mm plastic numbers from a model railroad company. The number is repeated on the back of the base so it is easy to see what player it is regardless of your facing.
The bases are resin bases from Secret Weapon miniatures. I’ve talked about Secret Weapon before; I use their lava bases on my Salamanders. I also use their urban rubble bases on my Necormunda enforcers. I like the company so much that when I plan a new army/team/gang I immediately look to Secret Weapon to find a suitable base.
I still have a lot of painting to do. I’m currently working on my coach, an extra runner, an apothecary, a turn counter, a reroll counter, and my beer wagon. That group has already been primed and I’ve started to get some base coats down. If I had a couple of hours I could probably get them finished too.
My pitch is still on hold. Enough of it is finished that you can play a game on it, in fact I should be using it this Sunday. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get the insulation foam boards that I need. I had some truck issues and then it rained for a week straight. Now that is all out of the way I should be able to get the supplies I need to start creating the dugouts and the mountain scoreboard.
