give my buddy a goblin...

... and you could win a print of my Xmas gift - two of my blood bowl teams duking it out!!

I promised the jpeg of my Xmas gift, here it is in all it's glory!
torne bane flaming ears (undead) vs. the jawbreakers (counts as slann)
You can check out the details HERE - but basically in order to be eligible for the contest, you need to paint a goblin for Abraxis' blood bowl team and donate it to him.  Therefore the prize had to be suitably awesome - hence the print.  I will get it signed by the artist as well.  He's also generously offered a coupon as a runner up prize

I selected the looney (chainsaw) goblin and plan to convert one similar to the rat wielding goblin I threw together for the blingtoof tournament.  I will use the same body and throw a space marine chainsword on there, and add some pads, etc.

We already have five people entered, please consider entering - it's just a painted goblin and the prize is well worth it.  Abraxis loved my idea of the harlequins painted by others as a necromunda gang so much he wanted something similar himself!  I already have 7 painted harlequins and there are two more floating in the blog-o-sphere (one with Mik and one with Paul of "The Man Cave") so my spire brat gang is in great shape.

Slow start to 2012...

and here's why....  we bought a house and moved in late December, so we have been getting settled.  the advantage is I now get a permanent hobby room/man cave. :)  Paul I'm sure you will approve!

So, onto business;
* Part 1 is a pimp post I've owed the Oklahoma guys  (Steve @kilowog2814 & Scott @fatfinley)
the #1 Blood Bowl podcast....  with an Episode Zero!!
Orclahomabowl brought to you by the same gingers who host the latest Blood Bowl podcast - Both Down!
You can check out the preview post I put up here.  I got my dice in the mail last year before we moved, unfortunately just haven't had much chance for blogging or gaming.  They are pretty sweet dice though - also happy to mention the pre-registration dice for Orclahomabowl have sold out so I guess it's going to go off a smash!

* Part 2 is posting about more harlequins painted by others for my spire brats necromunda gang.

First up is a harlequin I received from arabianknight over at Wee Blokes last year as we were packing up to move, so I've had this guy for a while.  He also sent over a miniature for me to paint.  All I got to before packing everything up was the skin, but you can see that pic below.  I have some funky ideas about how to try painting some tartan plaid using washes for it.
loving the orange!!
I'm thinking plaid shorts!

Second up is the skaven miniature that hakomike sent over along with the gorgeously painted harlequin he did for me, which I've gushed about endlessly here.  I plan to use washes for this guys fur, and maybe skin - but then use more standard paints for his clothing to really achieve some depth.
still lots to do - lol!

Third up is some great news about another harlequin painted for my by G.N.O.M.E. over at Spaaaaccee Shaaarrrkkks!  He's finished up painting a harlequin for me, and is currently in process of thinking of something to send along for me to paint!
loving the paint scheme on this guy!!

Ooofff, that was longer than I thought - I will save the third part of "business" (my plans/thoughts for gaming & painting this year) for another post.  I do have the CCKO blood bowl tournament coming up in around 10 days so hopefully that will kick start the hobby-ing!
