An Epic Tale (V)- More Reinforcements

About a year ago a mate of mine mentioned that he had some old Imperial Guard Epic tunnellers stashed away somewhere which I could have. Some time later and after some persistent nagging from yours truly, he turned up with all these:



Not being the greedy type I opted to just take the tunnellers rather than the whole lot. After a good soak in Dettol, they looked like this:

 

And after a quick paint job they look like this: 
 











Back to finishing my 15mm WW2 Germans next, then onto some ore Pocketquest stuff and my unpainted Blood Bowl teams.

Blood Bowl (III) - Miscellany

I am in the middle of a Blood Bowl League at the moment so I have been spending some time bringing my teams up to scratch.

I managed to pick up three 3rd edition GW Blood Bowl Orcs which will compliment my all plastic Orcs nicely. These things are usually quite expensive being 20 years old, but I got them for a snip on E-bay probably due to them being very poorly and thickly painted:


A good soak in Dettol and a light scrub later:








Whilst tarting up my Orc team I decided to convert the spare goblin I had into a manager/coach type, this was my first go with green stuff other than filling cracks, I added a mac like coat and flat cap(albeit not very successfully), he now looks like a version of Andy Capp(if he was a Flasher!)which kinda suits the team:

 
 




 

 And I added this collection of bits to make my sideline more interesting:
 
 

 
I also give one of the cheerleaders a new hair colour(she has become something of a background character in the narrative of our league): 
 
 
Finally the new additions warranted a new team photo:
 

and the now complete sideline:


Oh and I acquired a new head for my Ogre(I had always wanted a helmeted version) so quickly replaced the existing one:


 
 I reckon it'll be some 6mm next for a change! Though I do have a new Blood Bowl team(well 2 actually) that is sat staring at me!
