Hey everybody!

I am relying on your profund knowledge!
I am looking for minis that would fit into the range of the old GW Chaos figures. Along the lines of these:

Image Image Image

I know Impact sells two superb minis with Rex Farsight Image and Spider Smith Image.

As far as I can see, there are no other similar Blood Bowl specific minis out there. So, here is my question:

Where can I find other miniatures in the same style and which can be easily converted for Blood Bowl (I am artistically challenged :wink: )?
Or what miniatures do I have to look for?

Thanks a lot!

But where do I get them from? Does anyone know of any online shops that sell these beauties?

any Realm of Chaos minis from the late 80s catalogue would fit in with weapon snips.. some of them are gorgeous!

Stuff of legends is a good reference point and ebay often has minis from that era for sale for around $10 each.. the Champions of the various Chaos gods are amongst my favorite :D

You are right, they are quite neat.
But my heart has setteled on the old GW Chaos Warriors.I like their comic look.

So, anybody any ideas where to get them?

removing the knobs on the left wrist for the shields will be the hardest part in my experience.. hard to do that and make it look good.

a boxcutter and careful whittling can take them off.. and then a bit of greenstuff and a rubber nib to restore the lower arm.
