So, I didn't manage to find the original GW highelf team, but I could get a hold of the catchers. So I needed to kitbash the rest, and what is better than the White Lions of Chrace box? This box has everything you need for blitzers, throwers, linemen and re-rolls.. And that all ties in nicely with the lion-theme of the original catchers. Of course it needs some greenstuffing, but I find that it is actually a pretty straightforward job (just snip off the weapons and fingers and redo the hands.) and the big left pauldron is really good for easy arm repositioning. Can't wait to paint them up... In pink, gold and white ;)

I do love some kitbashing and conversions.
Could you post more pics? The guys in the background are not really in focus.

And yeah, I'd love to see your WIP painting pics as well.

Most certainly will.. The reason I haven't put the linemen in the foreground is that they haven't got arms yet :) But once they do I'll post some of them as well. Oh yeah, and the capes used to bother me, but if anybody would be haughty enough to wear a cape on the field, it would be a high elf.

Aaand here are the rest of the linemen, still w/o hands. I shaved off their tufts in order to distinguish the blitzers from them.

I just peeked into the GW online shop.
10 miniatures per box.
So you used 2 boxes, I guess?

No just getting the original catchers on the side:) but yeah you need two boxes for the whole team. However, if you're only going for the "standard" 12 figs, you could just order some bodies from a bitz place because although there are only 10 bodies there are various doubles of front upperbodies, heads and arms. That's how I could make two blitzers with champ heads and to unhelmeted throwers.

there were 2 of this sprue

-which had the champ head and unhelmed head and claw gauntlet + pointy finger

So I think this is going to be my color scheme.. Now I just need to figure out a name.. I'm thinking something catty, because of all the lion gear. So I could go comedic and call them something like Pellenor Pussycats, or go GW-fluff and call them Caïrn Thel Lions. What do ppl think?

They look very good, even with the pink...

I'm not a fan of goofy team names so I'd go with something like Lions or Tigers.
Or maybe one of the lesser kown cats like Cougars, Lynxes, Caracals...

Thanks, yeah the pink is a gamble, I know :) but I'm sick and tired of looking at red, green and blue teams. Also I'm not a good player so I like my team to look a bit dainty, and I'll imagine it's even worse losing to a pink dainty Elf team XD

Thank god he never did that! :lol:

I really like the color scheme! There's a few pink soccer teams in Europe, thinking of Palermo in Italy off the top of my head, so not entirely out of the realm of sporting possibility! As for the name, I prefer GW fluff.

Don't second guess it at all--the pink looks great with the gold and the warm white, and as you said, it's a unique scheme that people won't see all over the place. He looks great!
