New season, new team... (pt.1)

With the new season of the NABBO League well on it's way (XIII by the way), I finally get some free minutes to write a few of lines about the new team I'm playing this season...

Since NABBO League early days, and in order to cope with the limited availability of time to play that a good part of our coaches always had/have, we decided that a perpetual format would suit better our interests, allowing even the most busiest of the coaches, to drop by less regularly, and still have a team to join the fun with the rest of the crew.
Obviously, along the way, many coaches decided to pull the plug on their teams for plenty of the usual reasons (untimely death of team stars being one of the main), and so, with very few exceptions, every third or fourth season the teams ended up being "naturally" renewed.

In the end of the last season (while commemoration the 15 year anniversary of the league), it was decided to "reset and start over" the perpetual format, and with it, make some changes in the league rules, namely the MVP given in the end of the game (it used to be a coach choice, and became random).

Now, I always try to grab these opportunities to either start something new, or actually complete one of the projects that I always seem to have going on, and so, after some thought into it, I opted for this Undead team that I had converted a couple of years ago, but never got the chance or time to paint.

Most of the positionals are converted from leftover bits (from different GW sprues) and some green stuff to tie all together. The Ghouls are from GW fantasy (straight forward weapon snip), and the Werewolves are from West Wind  (that I decided to include to allow me to change the team from Undead to Necro, if wanted in the future).

Here are the photos of the team positionals, prior to their paint job:

Both Flesh Golem and Wights

The (four) Ghouls

The Werewolves, a bunch of zombies, and the odd skellie
 (beware, he's got the fouling boots on!)

This is it for today, hope you liked them.
If time allows, I'll be posting the pics of them painted later this week.

Have fun,

They are fantastic conversions mate.

You really do a great job with the GS.

Looking forward to seeing them painted - I assume the mummies would count as flesh golems for necro?

Thank you for your kind words Tristan! :)

Yes, its a flesh-mummy combo to bounce between races if needed be.

Very nice indeed!
Good luck with them on the pitch!

Thanks Paul!

My last game with them was against Amazons, and it was quite a struggle as the ladies are quite an impressive opponent, even more in such low tiers. Managed to grab a 1-1 draw, but I reckon things sometimes looked a bit grim for my side.
