Blood Bowl 2nd Edition Minotaurs

Here we have 2 additional minotaurs from the Blood Bowl 2nd Edition collection.  These are both single piece models and are of a pretty reasonable scale to actually use in the game without displacing to many near by models.

Lego Back to the Future

Lego came out with the Back to the Future Time Machine last year I think.  I had wanted one for a while and managed to score one as a Birthday present from my In-Laws.  This set is like the Ghostbusters one and comes with a tab lock box and thick bound instruction book with some additional information about the movies and lego set design.

Blood Bowl: Morg 'n' Thorg

Here is the GW 3rd Edition model for the Ogre Star Player Morg 'n' Thorg.  I got him with my 3rd edition Chaos Dwarves so he came painted.

He is also part of the same era or design in the 90's which was a bit more silly than the 80's or the modern designs.

Morg can be induced by most teams that are not Undead, Necromancer, or Khemri but his very high cost means he is only there for the really big underdogs.  Never used him myself but the mini can also fill in as a generic ogre for a human team.

Game Pieces or Models?

I was recently working on some miniatures again after a long break where I did not really do anything.  I kept buying pieces of various types but was mainly just storing them for some mythical future use.  Some of those purchases work quite well for me as I had filled in all my Games Workshop Blood Bowl miniatures that go on the pitch (never into stuff like Coaches and Cheerleaders or Trophies) before they disbanded the Specialist Games lines.  Some of those pieces have gotten hard to find now.  Other stuff is just sitting their waiting for me to think 40K is worth investing back into which does not seem like a very likely event with GW's current path.  Or to start playing some type of fantasy game.

Blood Bowl Old School Ogres

Here is my collection of old school ogres for Blood Bowl.  I have 6 total so if I do not give any to other teams could field an ogre team with them and my 2nd edition snotlings.  The guy at the top left is not an official Blood Bowl ogre but is of the same style.

They are in various states of priming/painting/stripping since most of them are second hand pick ups.  The two shinny ones are the ones that have been in the family blood bowl collection since they were first produced like 25 years ago. My dad made me spray varnish all of my leads back in the day to cut down in the lead contact which is why they are still so shiny.

I should probably do close up on them all so will do that next time I have them out.

Lego Minifigures Series 12

Up for examination today are some of the Lego collectable minifigures from series 12.  We ended up with 9 of the 16 from this group due to a mis-identification by me.  Above we have the Pig Suit which I just got since my wife saw one in the Lego Club magazine and asked if it was related to the movie.  It is not that she liked it but I remembered her mentioning it and decided to pick it up.  We also got a Hun and our misidentified Crazy Miner who I in quick checking thought his hat made him a different figure.
