Blood Bowl 2016 orcs update 1

I almost wrote ‘Blood Bowl 2020 orcs’ in the title, but then remembered that these models came in the 2016 boxed set,and have been patiently waiting 5 years to be painted.

I decided to tackle the positional players first, so from left to right are the blitzers, throwers, and black orc blockers. The line orcs will follow in a future update.

These models were mostly painted with a mix of contrast paints and acrylics. After watching Dana Howl’s recent video on the subject, I had intended to add a red and blue to my Contrast collection, but I forgot and used ordinary acrylics for those two colours, along with the metallics and bone.

    They look cool man. I’ve been thinking about blood bowl a bit lately. I’ve never played it but I watched a blood bowl field build on YouTube the other day and sort of got a little inspired.

      It’s a fun game, but league play never really got past the problem where if you get smashed in your first game, you can never really recover. Rarely a problem for the orc team though!
