Blitz Bowl: Building a Stadium / Pitch - Part I

Blitz Bowl is such a cool game and that's why I want to build a stadium for it. Here is a rough sketch of how the stadium will look like. I'll try to create a dungeon pit in which the teams battle each other.


My first attempt on the stone walls was not too convincing. Therefore, I tried something different... Cutting styrofoam, grinding/shaking with real stones and there you have perfect little foam rocks for the walls.


Then I went to a DIY store and bought a wooden crate. Except for the height, the crate has just the right size (60 x 40 cm). After some hard work and sweat, I could also correct that (from 24 cm to 8 cm). Then I started to glue the tiles on the ground...
 




Next up are the stone walls...

A little time off

I went off the grid for a few weeks and travelled to Japan (again). I had a wonderful time there, visited a lot of places and met nice people. But that's not all! I also bought some nice models (Space Marine Heroes Series 2) and tools...

Blitz Bowl: Ostermark Juggernauts - Linemen

Here is the first half of my human team the "Ostermark Juggernauts". The game is a simpler, faster version of good old Blood Bowl and I have bigger plans for it going...

Iron Hands: Land Raider Prometheus

This little tank stood unpainted on my shelf for about one and a half year. Because at the time the Primaris Marines emerged I lost interest in my "normal" Iron Hands to be honest. I deemed them to be dead fluff-wise sooner or later. 
Yesterday I played a fun game versus Synaptic_Lynchpin and his Tyranids [Visit here for some photos]. Therefore I painted my sleeping beauty and made her ready for battle. Hope you like her:
