Solitaire madness!
« on: December 30, 2017, 12:29:11 PM »


I can hear it now - what is this madness of buying three Solitaires when you can only ever field one?  Well, the answer is simple.  Two words, in fact!

BLOOD BOWL!!!!!

I am converting a Wood Elf team out of Harlequins and could think of no better model to represent Wardancers than the Solitaire.  For the majority of the team, it is simply removing the 40k weaponry and giving the thrower / catcher a ball for them to stand out.  But the Wardancers had to be special.  I really wanted them to stand out, and what better way to do that then to have them leaping over opponents?  Because... well... Wardancers start with Leap... so, it makes sense!

Leaping over an Orc Blitzer:





Leaping over a Black Orc





The best part is that because they are pinned, they are quite secure on the Orc's shoulders, and when they get knocked down / stunned in game, I can just pull them off and set them on the board so they take up less space.

If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.
Well I always liked the globals...
I knew I had fans!!!

Nice work.  This is a deceptively simply piece of conversion.  I don't know anything about the models needed for Bloodbowl, but I'd certainly be interested to see what the other members of your team look like.

Good job!

Genius idea GML and the Solitaire is a perfect fit for the pose you have created. I actually think the model looks better this way than it does leaping over its standard base.

I take it you have played Blood Bowl before.
