Old Dwarf, New Age

Bloodbowl as many of you know is back, but its bigger (liberality, 32mm bases) and very well evolved since those heady days of the 80's when I was first playing. But just like me, I have a number of 'old' Bloodbowl teams. Most of which were incomplete within the new rules, but I have been fortunate enough to acquire replacements. The only thing that I wasn't happy about after creating my boar centaurs for the Chaos Dwarfs, was trying to find a suitable replacement for Mad Eye, the Chaos Dwarf Star player. Once again, Milliput has come to my rescue. I've got hold of a Chaos Dwarf with the right look, in that he dates from the same time. This one is the loader from the Bazooka team, it has a wooden shaft which will work for a simple Blunderbuss.

This is the initial creation, as you can see I've found a cone of a suitable size. Its from the 2nd Edition Bloodbowl so I've added a fuse. That is also the basics of the 'half' ball on the knife.

 After a bit of drying I moved onto mounting and adding the 'ball'.

 There is a bit of a gap from the mounting, but I'm happy with the position now.

 Filled in the gaps and added a little shape to the edge of the barrel to show as reinforcement. I've also modified the fuse a bit more, with some extra area to were it is located.

 He's looking very nice now, onto painting.
 The finished little Chaos Dwarf, ready to 'KAPOW' balls into the end-zone.
