“Welcome To Blood Bowl Sevens…”

“…The fast and furious game of fantasy football.”

"Hello sports fans, and welcome to a brand new edition of Monday Night Football. I'm Jim Maddenberg and along with my fellow co-commentator Thom Grassyglade, I’ll be bringing you all the latest news concerning the game’s most recent development known as Blood Bowl Sevens.”


"To begin with the amateur game seems to have already attracted the attention of a mysterious Human team, known simply as The Marauders. Thom, is this club associated with the much-missed Middenheim Marauders, or perhaps connected to the modern-day two-time Worlds Edge Super League Winners known as the Maulers..?”

"Blood Bowl" WIPs - The Human Lineman was layered, shaded and dry-brushed

“It wouldn’t appear so, Jim. Rather this team of out-of-production 28mm plastic Humans seems to have simply had their kit’s colour scheme inspired by a similarly aged metal boxed set from the early Nineties which was labelled The Marauders. For now all we do know is that the Sevens side’s first of five Linemen is ready for the pitch.”


“Costing 50,000 copper pieces this player was primed in a mixture of “Vallejo” Black Surface Primer and Gloss Black. He was then given a double coat of “Vallejo” Gunmetal, before being shaded with “Citadel” Nuln Oil and dry-brushed using (more) “Vallejo” Gunmetal.”

"Blood Bowl" WIPs - The Human Lineman's "Vallejo" Gold areas were layered with Heavy Sienna first

“I understand the Lineman’s boots, straps and gloves were treated to a combination of “Vallejo” Heavy Sienna and “Citadel” Agrax Earthshade, Thom..? Followed by his hip cloth being pigmented with “Vallejo” White, Sun Yellow and a splash of “Citadel” Reikland Fleshshade.”


“That’s correct Jim. Finally, the Human player’s shoulder pads, belt buckle and helmet crest were given a coat of “Vallejo” Heavy Sienna and subsequently Gold, as well as plenty of “Citadel” Agrax Earthshade. As a last touch, his trousers and belt were tidied up using a little “Citadel” Abaddon Black, and his armour darkened right down with another application of Nuln Oil.”


"Thanks Thom. That just about concludes this Blood Bowl Sevens show. But please do join us again next time when we'll be taking a closer look at some of this team's other players..."
