Blitz Bowl: Snotlings

One of the great things about Blitz Bowl is that one Blood Bowl box is enough for two teams. These Snotlings were ones that a friend was kind enough to share with me.

And they are just too cute. These three position players come with 25mm bases, which is smaller than the 32mm of most Blitz Bowl models. I stuck magnets to the underside with superglue and green stuff so they can still hold balls.

The main body of Snotlings (six! as many models as most teams get altogether!) also came with 25mm bases. I went even smaller and put them on 20mm bases. It makes them look even smaller and cuter on the table, and helps to distinguish them from the postional players. And since the game is played on a grid, the bases don’t really matter.

They don’t have magnets for the ball, but there’s so much room in the grid that it doesn’t really matter.

Pump Wagon

The Pump Wagon is the big boy of the team, getting a 32mm bases that it really doesn’t fit on. Plus four snotlings getting a ride.

And of course, a variety of accessories. I based the standing ball, as is my current practice. I also tried basing the marker to help it stand. I’m not sure how I feel about that approach yet, though I wish I had cut off the built in base.

Blitz Bowl: Chaos

Chaos is the last of my latest round of Blitz Bowl team powerups.

I really like this purple skin for beastmen. I did it for Underworlds and Blackstone Fortress. Why not Blitz Bowl?

I don’t love the pose of these blockers. There’s something classically GW about them, but my nostalgia for it isn’t quite powerful enough.

Chaos balls

I’ve only been painting half team boxes, then selling off or giving away the other half. It’s all I need for Blitz Bowl, and I don’t really have much desire for Blood Bowl. But Dungeon Bowl has me intrigued, and I think these half teams will be enough.

Blitz Bowl: Undead

We had the halflings, now it’s time for a team with a different hunger.


The ghoul gets a distinct skin color, to help separate it from the rest of the team.


The mummy ended up with darker bandages than I had intended.

Wight Blitzer

The wight blitzer looks a lot like his less-powerful skeleton friends. The key is the winged helmet.

One of the zombies lost a finger during assembly. But, hey, zombie don’t care.

The undead team is unique in Blitz Bowl for having seven models on the team. They’ve even got two pairs of mooks, instead of triple linemen like so many others.
