Summary

Been working on a project for a friend. We occasionally play Blood Bowl 2 (on PC) and we had an… incident… Where I killed both of his Witches in the same match… So I decided to make a memorial for them.

Had a good time with this one. Pretty easy project for it’s my first conversion. All I really had to do was clip off some weapons and bits, then file them down with my round needle file. And use the scrap to lean the figures forward some.

What I Learned/What I’d Do Differently

If I’m going to do anything differently with this, it’s thin the glue less for the grass. I would like it to be more lush. Like a real football field. Actually I’ll probably redo that section later and just not re-post it.

I think I might try and put a small ring of black around the eyes next time too.
