|He's not fat, just big boned!|
This started off a very long term project that ran until May 2013, where the end goal was to take my unique Skaven team to one of the world's premier Blood Bowl tournaments, the NAF Championship. This first post (probably in a sequence of two or three), will cover the making of the models.
Setting out the Principles
Fat Rat showed me that I could make a pretty characterful figure using old models. My favourite Blood Bowl team however, has always been Jes Goodwin's Skaven. I wondered whether I could make a team in that style, using those models, but tweaking them to make them unique?
My next player was a two-headed lineman, made simply from splicing two existing Skaven players and covering the join. So far, so simple!

|He's got a big spike you know|
And then a 3-legged kicker made from yet another lineman and a kicker:
The kicker was at that point one of the most complicated conversions I'd attempted and involved completely dismembering two models and reassembling them, all with the aim of recreating this artwork in model form:

After that, it didn't really stop!
|More and more rats|
The completed team can be viewed on my Blood Bowl teams page.
That's it for now! Part 2 will showcase the painted models.
