Dwarf Blood Bowl Team the Golden Miners

Dwarf Blood Bowl Team Showcase

After a few last sprints, I have finally finished my Dwarf Blood Bowl team, the Golden Miners. ¬†These were a great set of miniatures, and in many ways, a much nicer set than the start box models. I’ll talk more about what I liked about this kit at the end of the post. I also linked the tutorials I’ve already put together for the team below. Let me know what you think of the team. Dwarf Blood Bowl Team Here is the whole Golden Miners team on the pitch. The Dwarven Slayers are clearly the most dynamic set of miniatures in the set. You can also see that for this duo and the Blitzers below, the kit came with two sets of heads. You can’t argue with their beards though. And here are those Blitzers.

So if you need some help or inspiration on how to paint yellow, check out the three tutorials below.

Good Reads 5 – Panther, Rivers, Thunder Priest, and Fists

Welcome to Good Reads 5 where I highlight some of the Hobby Blogs from around the interwebs that caught my eye. One of the things I love about our corner of the internet is that we hobby bloggers look at each other as companions in this journey and spur each other on. It is hard to find that anywhere else, so keep up the great work hobby bloggers, #warmongers, and readers alike! Chaos Panther Beast What happens when you combine the Glotkin, Maulerfiend, and a ton of green stuff? Well TG over at Dark Future Games made a crazy wicked Chaos Panther. Over the course of five or six posts, TG documented his progress from a pile of bits and a creative idea, into a very unique and inspiring conversion. Hopefully we see it painted soon TG! Improving Premade Rivers So John Stiening over at 40k Hobby Blog showed how you can take pre-painted river sections you can pick up for $18 on Amazon, and re-paint them into much more realistic terrain pieces. With just …
