Here are the three new recruits to the team, blockers. At the moment there are only three because I'm hunitng down the final sculpt (I have trades - contact me!) but, like with the line-orcs, I'm pleased with how they've turned out. I could do better, but only if I spent an unreasonably long time on them, and I'm happy with the effort/outcome balance of these. Ready to bash heads....
I've also (just!) started on the blitzers:
And I've found the image I'm going to use as the basis for the team logo. I got it from a google image search, but when I tried to go to the page it gave me a 404 error. If it's yours, or you recognise it, do let me know so I can ask permission/credit the artist.
Six players gives me half a starting line-up, but I doubt I'd use that many lineorcs out of choice.
Do you have a favoured starting (competition) line-up for orcs?
They are lovely. Good work. An afternoon well spent sir!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Stephen.Delete
Lovely green there! Works very well with the red and white. I feel like painting BB now...ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mattias! I think you should paint some BB, I'd love to see your take on a halfling team.Delete
I actually have a few halflings painted, including the very imposing Puggy model. Realize I haven't posted all of them on my blog. Here are some of the team if you missed them:Delete
Those are great! I definitely think you should get back to them and then maybe we could sort out some kind of play-by-email match up between the Wyverns and the Doom Forgers?Delete
That sounds like a rather good idea! :) 2nd edition w companion and star players books? Or current competition rules? My vote is on 2nd for gits and shiggles, like.Delete
I used to play 'offline' fumbbl, as in we played peer to peer over the net but the teams were hosted on my site instead of fumbbl. I then rolled advancements etc IRL and updated the rosters. Allowed my cousin and I to play both remote and tabletop using the same teams.
I've never played 2nd! I started with LRB4, I think, and enjoy LRB6 best so far. I'm happy to give 2nd a go, though, and your offline fumbbl idea sounds fine. I suppose I'd had in mind something like the Midgard pbem client (which admittedly runs lrb4), which would allow us to have photos of our players down the side.Delete
I think you've given me the supporters' slogan for my team as well - "In it for the Blitz and Niggles"
That's a very good slogan! =) About the technical platform, I'm at a loss. For 2nd edition we would probably have to do it oldschool. A pitch each, with tokens on them - and emailing our turns back and forth. The thought of that, while a pain in the ass, has a certain luddite lure to it. However - without the nostalgia I'm not sure you could stomach the 2nd edition rules. They're completely nuts! Guess that's why they're so flavourful. =DDelete
If we just want a proper game, I agree - LRBx is good. Something that lets me stat up a team with two werewolves, a few dwarves and a handful of halflings. I have most of the team painted - it's only two flings and a werewolf that needs paint applied.
You seem to have a little better grasp of the available clients. Cook something up? =)
And btw, email me on "email@example.com" - but without the lol. =)Delete
disgraceful, skipping school to paint....no wonder you getting more painting done than me!!! ;-)ReplyDelete
they look great though
I would swap a day with 11XCore to avoid a migraine any day!Delete
