NABBO League blog open!
(The banner is a link)

Open for it's coaches for the NABBO Tea Cup 2013 and to the general public in the beginning of this year, the NABBO League crew is proud to announce the blog where you will be able to read (and see) plenty of stuff about all that's going on with the NABBO League.

The blog is divided in two groups of sections, the first three being dedicated to the season main competitions (League, Cup, and Tournament), with a bit of fluff on each competition itself and a Hall of Fame with all the past winners.
The last two sections (The Teams, and Wide Zone), are dedicated to all hobby activities behind Blood Bowl, where you'll find league teams, star players, custom pitches, plenty of conversions, and even a few side line figures that have taken a role in the "grand scheme of NABBO League Blood Bowl".

The blog will (hopefully) be in a constant updating mode, with more figures added as coaches have them painted or photographed, so check it out once in a while to see some news.

Hope you drop by to take a peek, and if you see something you enjoy please feel free to leave a comment!

SAGA Baggage Train

A few months ago, while browsing for some inspiration to paint a couple of minis I had in my workbench for ages, I've ended up in the forum of a game that I already read something about in Paul's Man Cave blog, sometime ago:
SAGA skirmish game, from Gripping Beast/Studio-Tomahawk!

In this SAGA/Muskets&Tomahawks forum, not only I've found the inspiration for the colour schemes I was looking for (you should really go there if not for more, to check some really fantastic paint jobs), but I also saw a few conversions that got me that "itch" to scratch build/ convert/ paint something similar myself.
 So, after some hunting in the bits box(es), I found the pieces to put a couple of "peasants" together, some plastic (very cheap) farm animals I had from some other project, and after a few sketches in a sheet of paper, I was ready to start my new "Baggage Train".

With some leftover bits of wood and plasticard, my baggage train was almost ready, all I need was to fill it with something worthwhile...  "Grain bags will do just fine!", thinks the goose running after some of the corn falling from the moving cart!


The peasant minis were build with bits of old GW Mordheim plastic sprues, so obviously they didn't look that much "Dark Aged", but after sculpting some tunics and hoods (hand bag and torch too) with green stuff, they ended up looking ok I guess.
Both figures have a magnet under the base to keep them in place while moving the "train", but still allowing me to take them off to fight for their lives, next to the train or somewhere else if needed to.

Hope you like this little project and as always, comments are welcome!
