Blitz Bowl: Rotpox Rumblers

Blitz Bowl Season 2 is available now and I am really looking forward to the first games with the advanced rules. In the box, new player cards for most of the known teams are included, also the ones which weren't included before - like Dark Elves, Halflings, Lizardmen and so on. This gave me the motivation to paint a Nurgle Blitz Bowl Team I had laying around for a while. I proudly present the "Rotpox Rumblers"!

With the new box came a new two-sided gaming board with new pitch layouts. Therefore, I will need to build some additional stuff for my pitch, too.

Adeptus Titanicus: Slaanesh Cerastus Knights?!

The idea of an army of tainted or even corrupted Knights and Titans for Adeptus Titanicus lingered a long time in my head. Therefore I collected bits over the last months and tried different things out. Eventually, I decided to go for a Slaanesh-themed army and started the first conversions. 

Later on, I needed more than one go to find the right colour scheme and the right techniques to do it. I also printed my own decals because I could not find enough or the right ones. Here are my first two Slannesh Cerastus Knights. As you can see, they are somewhat different from their loyal counterparts, but not too much. I swapped the shock lances for Slaanesh Hellstrider Claw-spears, took some armoured heads from Age of Sigmar and put the Hellstrider Shields on top of the Ion Shield Gauntlets. On some miniatures, small horns and spikes are also protruding from the carapaces. 

I wanted to do more stuff like converting the legs, but that looked stupid and my moulding skills with green stuff are not so good. But I am satisfied nevertheless because this way the miniatures look not too much over the top. What do you think?


Here is my first test miniature and be sure there is much more to come...
