“Troll Slayers Aren’t Likely To Be Dodging Around…”


“…So you can concentrate on building them to hurt the other team.”

"Salutations fellow salivating Blood Bowl fans, and welcome to an action packed broadcast of Thursday Night Football. I'm Jim Maddenberg and along with Thom Grassyglade, I’ll be bringing you the very latest news concerning the smaller-sized, much faster version of Blood Bowl called Sevens.”


"Straight off the bat there’s news that amateur club, the Rusty Buckets, have somehow scooped up retired Blitzer Naghag Nightbane. The second edition Dwarf has been lured back out from his latest quest to meet a glorious death for a jaw-dropping 95,000 copper pieces, and has already made the local newspaper’s front page donned in the team’s well-worn kit.”

"Blood Bowl" WIPs - The Dwarf was primed, dry-brushed and shaded before having his details picked out

“That’s correct Jim, this 28mm scale second-hand metal miniature was initially (re)primed with a layer or two of “Vallejo” Heavy Sienna, so as to completely cover the sculpt’s previous yellow and blue colour scheme. The player was then dry-brushed with “Vallejo” Gunmetal, before being treated to a combination of “Citadel” Agrax Earthshade and "The Army Painter" Strong Tone Quickshade.”


“Following that, the grizzled veteran had his steel toe-capped boots, and belt ‘picked out’ with “Citadel” Abaddon Black, before his trousers and tunic received a coat of “Vallejo” Heavy Sienna and (more) “Citadel” Agrax Earthshade. The Dwarf’s gloves were initially coated with “Vallejo” Heavy Brown, before being shaded in (even more) “Citadel” Agrax Earthshade.”

"Blood Bowl" WIPs - A Dwarf Blitzer and a pair of portly Blockers

“I believe some additional touches of "Mig Productions" Extreme Rust Wash were also used on the model’s spiked knee-caps, elbow-pads, shoulder-pads and knuckle-dusters, Thom..? Plus his beard and hair were treated to a mixture of “Vallejo” Heavy Orange and “Citadel” Reikland Fleshshade..?”


“Spot on, Jim. Interestingly, the Rusty Buckets are now not the only Dwarf team currently trying to recruit former professional Blood Bowl players either, following gold mine owner Bruldrin Bluebeard’s announcement to establish a new Sevens side known as the Bombardiers.


"Thanks Thom. I, for one, am looking forward to these two new clubs battling it out in some sort of future Dwarf Bowl. Sadly, that brings this particular Blood Bowl Sevens special to an end. But please do join us again next time when we'll once again be taking a closer look at some of this sport's other players..."
