From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
This definitely counts as my entry for Ann’s April painting challenge. How could it not? I have had these trophies since 2002, and I’ve always hesitated to paint them.
A few years ago I took a picture of the unpainted trophies next to a couple of Blood Bowl players:
The players are both painted, but the trophies have never known the touch of a paint brush. It was time for that to end.
Here’s an image of the finished 4, again with two Blood Bowl figures for scale.
In selected the paint schemes for each trophy I decided to stick as close as possible to the original art in the 1993 Blood Bowl box, illustrated by Wayne England (RIP).
Here are some close images of each trophy, next to their original art cards.
These were at least painted up before their twentieth year in my possession, but there’s plenty more neglected models where these came from!
