Since I’ve been posting the individual positions for my Orc Blood Bowl team I thought it might be nice to show off the whole team in one go. Here they are, all twelve in their glory and ready to go out and play ball. A very enjoyable bunch to paint, and maybe I’ll actually use them against my kids one day.
Finally, here are the last positionals for my Orc Blood Bowl team, the Blitzers. Like the Blockers, these can be taken up to four per team and to be honest four of them would be the first entry for every team I make if possible. They’re just better (and more expensive of course) than Linemen in any way that matters.

These nice chaps are Black Orc Blockers for Blood Bowl. In honour of their name I used a darker green for their skin tone; I’m not completely happy with the way it ended up but maybe I needed to do an intermediate highlight or something on it. If I was actually playing Blood Bowl properly I’d probably aim to start with the full four of the Black Orc Blockers since their high strength is so useful. They’re terrible at actually going anywhere or doing anything with the ball though.

Following on my usual slow style, here are the Throwers for my Blood Bowl Orcs. There isn’t too much more to say about them than the Linemen, so I’ll let these pictures speak one thousand words each on my behalf (mostly they’re saying ‘you should spend longer getting good at painting, you slacker’).

My son and I picked up a Blood Bowl team each. We don’t seem to have played more than a few turns of actual Blood Bowl, but we’ve been enjoying painting the miniatures. I’m really impressed with the quality of these kits considering that they come in two pieces per miniature.
I find myself constrained a bit when painting Orcs since the green skin rather excludes green from the colour choices for the rest of the mini. In the end I went for purple armour and white cloth, though there are a few bits where I’ve painted something the wrong way round (and notably on one of them I thought that the jaw was part of the helmet and painted it purple too). Nothing too hard or detailed, but good enough to feel good about putting them out for a game.
