I posted recently about my Blood Bowl coach I had sculpted. It is my first ever miniature sculpt and I’m very proud of how that came out. It’s not perfect, but it’s mine and I made it :)
I’ve since managed to get him painted and that’s what I’m showing off today.
Blood Bowl Coach
It really is a pretty simple model, so I’ll be honest in saying the paint job isn’t amazing. I’m not knocking myself, just that as much fun as I had sculpting this model, it didn’t really call to me in painting – not sure why really. Maybe I was just burned out from the sculpting.
I kept everything simple and basic on the coach. I had some fun with the cloak, trying to give it some interesting textures, but most everything else is just bog standard painting.
I will say I’m pretty pleased with the base. The texture came out well and I played with washes and dry brushing to just get something a bit more eye-catching than a single color with a wash.
I feel the base pulls it all together.
I’m happy to have sculpted this coach and now painted him. This will serve as a great time capsule at some point for when I get better at sculpting and create some more stuff.
I’m happy with my painting results, but more importantly to have a coach to take to my games now.
From start to finish this was a fun project and it really got me doing something new. I’ve never sculpted a model before, so the whole process of coming up with an idea, creating it, and then painting it was really fun and unique.
Amusing story. I took the coach to his first game last week. He wasn’t painted but fully sculpted at that point. I was playing against Orcs and took 4 casualties, none of which I made a regeneration roll on. I’m hoping now that he’s painted that he’ll be more inspiring for my team to make some regen rolls *fingers crossed*
