I think I have solved the problem at least with one knight.

The dragon knight is almost done, but today I was struck by inspiration.
1€ of wood bits to make necklances, with a more sci-fi intent.



I'm thinking to simply paint it silver and black, but suggestions are welcome.

Working on some monsters.

Here the first two: a giant frog-like creature (that I like to call troll-dogtoad) and a little wind drake made with scrapped toys parts.

Holiday seasong is getting its tool on me, so much work. So let me show you some old stuff.

First of all the dwarf cannon got a base.





Then a coupleof giants.

A chaos lord made from a 2€ vending machine toy (it's me or the shield is a copy of a GW chaos shield?) No customization here, only paint.







And then a frost giant made from a 2€ biker action figure.

Again toyhammer, a rat ogre made from an Egyxos toy, a dragon toy and a bunch of parts. Also fur made of static grass, it kinda works.
Plus some touch ups on the old rats.

Another toy conversion. This is born as another rat ogre, but in the middle became a chaos cyborg.
And because tomorrow is Christmas I use some snow!

I'm not happy of the bloody meat on te back or the base, but I still think it's pretty good,

I was in the mood to make some terrain this week.

Small to big.

Time to begin a new project.

I recently got some bits on ebay and I found enough pieces to put togeter a couple of Blood Bowl teams.

I do not play the game, but whatever, I can still use them in D&D.

First team, Chaos!

Beastmen



Chaos Warriors



Group shot


Big Guy.
This was a problem.
I have my big cyborg, an heroquest minotaur and a wereboar toy (Cronox, I think). I do not really want to use the cyborg, it's a little too much Norse, and he has a giant axe for an arm, not the best for a Blood Bowl game. The heroquest minotaur is classic, but the sculpt is old and I do not like the humanoid feet. The last is the wereboar, I hate the big legs but at the moment it is the best I have.





Here a test on the team colors, it's a little bland, but I want to keep the blue so I can still use the cyborg. I do not really like this scheme (except blue & gold), maybe the problem is the gray fur.

Some more toys. Mini Gormiti, used as a proxy Blood Bowl Team, or for some d&d nights.

LOL...that Obelix model! smaller scale and you´d have yourself an awesome looking dwarf....

i like that you used cadian kneeling heavy weapon legs for your blood bowlers....kind of like a sweet revenge for all the kitbashs that have been done the other way to make medieval looking troopers....
