I'm using the Slann team for the first time since a couple of very frustrating games back in 2011 when I built the team. Following last Wednesday evening's game I was able to buy myself a new player for the squad with my winnings; I settled on a third Catcher.
When I originally built the team, I picked up a selection of 11 old WHFB Slann and did a few weapon snips and minor modifications. The Catchers were a bit more dynamic, with leaping and jumping poses as befits their in-game rules. In anticipation of needing a new player, I had acquired some additional Slann just for this very purpose. The new Catcher was donated to the cause by Asslessman over at Leadplague (thanks JB - hope you don't mind the heretical use I've put him to!).
Here's the resulting figure:
The paint job was a very quick 2hr result. Although I could have spent more time on getting a better result, the figure needed to fit in with the original team from 2011 when I was a little more slap-dash with the paints!
The figure itself is a conversion from the C32 Slann Warrior / Cold One Rider 'Quinenz':
His spear was clipped away, while the right leg was sawn off at the knee and hip, before being pinned and the joins sculpted over. The left arm was sculpted over a paper clip and the model finished with the addition of a catcher's glove from Impact Miniatures. The poor unfortunate human on the ground is from the classic 2nd edition Citadel Blood Bowl range.
All 3 of my Catchers have been built to roughly the same principles:
|One, two, three...leap!
Finally, here's the full team to date. No doubt some anguished Warhammer Slann fans will be looking in despair at the destruction I've wrought!
|All the Frogs, ready for action!
