Blitz Bowl: Dwarves

The dwarves are the new half of the season 2 Blitz Bowl box (repeated humans being the disappointing other half)


The sprue in the Blitz Bowl box is a push fit variant on the existing standalone box. It still has a variant for the Trollslayer, though.

Dwarf Blitzer

I thought the Blitzer had a senior quality to him, so he gets gray hair to reflect it.

Dwarf Runner

I really focused on transitions and gradation on the armor plates for this team. I quite like the results.

As I’ve done before, the Linemen all get matching hair that’s different from the rest of the team.

I think the dwarves may be my favorite Blitz Bowl team to date, in terms of how they turned out.

Blitz Bowl: Lizardmen

I let the kids each choose a Blood Bowl team to split with me, so we’d each paint up a team. Max chose Lizardmen. Here’s my side of it.

Chameleon Skink

These models are mostly painted with GW Contrast paints. It works especially well with the deep crevices of the scaly parts of the lizardmen.

The saurus blockers are big. Especially when put next to the little skinks.

The skinks get big happy eyes, like the Relicblade gilblin fishers.

Blitz Bowl: Wood Elves

I let my kids each pick out a Blood Bowl team box. I would get half, and they could paint the other half, giving each of us a full Blitz Bowl team. Ruth chose Wood Elves.

Wood Elf Wardancer

Of all the teams I’ve done so far, the Wood Elves offer the most choices, with lots of extra heads and a few arm variants. Blitz Bowl doesn’t double up on models, but it’s still a nice touch.

Wood Elf Catcher

This is my first elf team for Blitz Bowl. They definitely sell as lithe compared to the humans.

Wood Elf Thrower

According to the guys at The Crush, the swirl on the top of the thrower’s head is a horn. Well I saw phooey to that, it’s hair.

The lineman all have mohawks and masks. To help match their status as “regular” players, they all have the same white hair.

I continued my trend of keeping the coin and token simple. They’re not exciting, but that’s what you get.

Blitz Bowl: Goblins

The Underworlds Creepers are nearly the perfect Blitz Bowl box. It’s got two different six-model teams, the skaven and goblins. There’s just one problem: the goblin Blitz Bowl team is special and has eight models. I considered filling in the numbers with third party models, or even some of the Forgeworld options. In the end, I kept things simple and bought the four-man goblin expansion GW prime sells. That leaves with two spares.

To make the team fit in with the skaven, while still being distinct when played as separate teams, I cycled the colors. The skaven had green cloth and purple armor. Goblins have green flesh, purple cloth, and mostly black/metal armor.

The goblin balls are perhaps the best of the bunch. I especially like the squiq in a ball costume.

The coin and marker got my standard treatment. No-frills, but still clearly team-associated.
