Introducing the first of my BloodBowl team for Tale of Tuesdays! Champions of Death - Spaceshrimp flavour.
So despite being a really easy going and playful person in general, I actually take this hobby quite "seriously". What I mean by that is, I am not a fan of out of place conversions or paint schemes. If painting your Primaris like Buzz Lightyear is your thing, then power to you! Just totally not my approach at all. However, I think Bloodbowl lends it's self really well to having a bit of fun with the team names and themes and being a little bit silly.
Obligatory rear view
So without further ado, let me introduce my team name! I have decided to call my Champions of Death the "Necro Funk Foulers". Not sure exactly what inspired my team, but as I type this, I think playing a ton of Crypt of the Necrodancer recently might have had something to do with it! My 80's disco-themed team is my first test run of using contrast as well, so it has been a super fun break from what is usually on my paint desk. I know my opinion on contrast is very late to the party, but they are great! Everything I expected them to be. Perfect for a quick and simple repeatable paint scheme like I have here. They really interact with each other nicely, so the "glowy" areas and darker green areas is just Aethermatic Blue on top of not 100% dry Plaguebearer flesh.
Really looking forward to playing around with more contrast and seeing how the different colours mingle. So that is it from me for month one, just a couple of areas to touch up and then onto painting the mummy for next month - which I am sure is going to be so super easy and quick with my contrast scheme!
