I picked up the second edition of bloodbowl to add to my old hammer collection. I had this set back in the day and with the release of the latest version it got me in the mood to tackle the older kit.i hit these old minis today with some poppy 80s colour schemes for the Bright Crusaders

I rather like that the ultimate skaven is this old mini who is classed as a fearsome monster in the rules. If this game came out today he’d be a huge verminlord kit.

Once his companions are away the warrior makes a break for it but is cut down by his foes. His companions escape but have to find a replacement before returning to the dungeon.

Classic Deathmaster

I need an assassin for my game so I thought I’d use this classic Deathmaster model. I didn’t paint this mini. I purchased it back in the early 90’s and a friend of mine painted it. I never painted anything as a teenager but my friend was always good at it. He went into our local GW store in the 90’s and showed them his work and before he knew it got a job on the Eavy metal team. I have two Skaven painted by him a few years before he got that job so I’d never touch them now. Of course my photography doesn’t give it justice.
