Blood Bowl- Halflings!

I am proud to present my Blood Bowl Halfling team, The Wild Flings! These are from Willy Miniatures, and I am taking them to CanCon this weekend!


The colour scheme was inspired by this Cleveland Browns variant logo designed by Daniel Gold:

I used a flesh coloured primer for these figures, which worked really well. I loved painting the faces- there's so much character in their sculpts and poses. (I did flag a bit when painting all their armour and stripes...)














I know that they can only have two treemen, but I also want to take Deeproot Strongbranch, and I happened to have a fourth treeman which I painted because I was on a roll! I didn't want to paint the creepers, fungi, or leaves too bright in order not to detract from the armour and stripes.





I got a Puggy Baconbreath star player as well.

Finally, a Master Chef!


Wish me luck for CanCon!

    1. I don't know a thing about American Football, but my colour scheme is getting a few raised eyebrows from those who do...

  9. Saw these on the painting challenge and thought them fantastic. Well done with great character. How did they go? Usually halflings fail unless coached by a legend. ;)
