The Beginning - Willy Miniatures Ultimate Halfling Team

I managed some work on the Halfling Blood Bowl team this weekend. I prepped and assembled everything. Old Stump required some surgery to make his left arm fit properly, it wasn't terribly difficult a regular razor saw took care of the initial work very neatly. I sculpted a new nose for Player #5 and a new finger for Player #1. I'm sure they are going to be replaced but I would rather be painting than waiting for replacements. I think I did just fine, once they are painted you will be hard pressed to figure out which ones needed to be fixed.

I have a few step by step shots of working on Old Stump, the miscasts and then some team photos after they were primed.

Player #1 miscast finger on right hand (he should be pointing at something)

  1. Cool! I'm looking forwards to painting mine, but it won't be for a while.

    1. I'll try to keep this moving right along then. You can learn from my mistakes!

  2. Cool looking team. Can't wait to the them in there team colours!

    1. I'm still trying to decide on the team colors. My first thought is going the traditional green and yellow maybe in quarters. But I think I need to look at some other colors before I decide.
