My top 5 favourite BB minis of all time

Here are my favourite Blood Bowl minis down through the years
These minis may not be to everybodys taste, but I have found these minis to be enoumous fun to paint and just ooze character.

  • 5 - Orc Blitzer

    I just love the pure cartoon theme to this mini. BB to me is a game of comical violence. I was never that fond of "realistic" players in BB, like the newer stuff out is taking (Re: New Zug and Griff models) which just look like Empire WFB style to me, but BB is a totally separate universe which is anything but serious!
  • 4 - Dwarf Trollslayer

    Another one of the comic style, but this guy just looks like he cannot wait to cave someones head in, and the bigger the better!
  • 3 - 2nd Ed Skaven Thrower

    This mini I have chosen because I think it is sculpted extremely well. The 2nd ed range of Skaven are far superior in my mind to the current edition of Skaven. These guys also cost a pretty penny to buy on ebay, but are a team I would love to paint in the future!
  • 2 - Bomber Dribblesnot

    A goblin on a Football field, wearing a pirate hat, and lobbing bombs (albeit very poorly!) at the opposition. How cool is that?
  • 1 - Halfling 2

    Yes, what sums up a brutal game of BB where the mortality rate rockets, with Chainsaws, Bombs, Lawn Rollers of death, Zombies and Knives any better than a runt with a saucepan as a helmet, complete with a spoon as his cherished medallion of past glories on the pitch! Just before he gets his leg eaten by a Troll.

What are your favourite BB minis?

Pffft.....

No mention of the totally badass Skaven Stormvermin.

Yeah, the problem with a list like this is that it is always difficult to fit in everything you like!

I like quite a lot, I also detest quite a lot of the minis too (The 3rd Ed Wood Elves, the 3rd Ed Humans are crap in my eyes) but I like these minis. Which Skaven SV are we talking. the 2nd Ed or 3rd Ed? Those 2nd Ed Skaven were amazing but would be pretty fanboyish to have 5 of them in my top 5 dont you think! :D

Give me a list of what you like yourself!

Sorry Rob - your list is full of fail.
(or as much fail as an opinion can have I suppose)

Number 5 - Puggy Baconbreath
* The little guy manages to be a menacing halfling. Everyone should have one.

Number 4 - 2nd ed Ogre 2 (spiky fist).
* He's not too big like the newer multi part Ogres. He looks manacing. Oozes characetr.

Number 3 - 2nd Ed. Dwarf Blocker 3.
* Looks sturdy and solid. One of the minis that got me playing BB in the first place.

Number 2 - 2nd. Ed. Elf Blitzer with mohawk
* Dynamic, attractive sculpt that fits the "violent grace" concept perfectly.

Number 1 - 2nd ed Skaven Thrower 2
* You were so close...the guy holding the ball ehind him is better though.

Honourable mentions:
"Split Tendoncutter" (2nd ed Skaven Blitzer 2)
For that matter, the entire Elf and Dwarf 2nd ed ranges.
Wormhowl Greyscar.
Multipart Ogres (Gorgeous, but too big).

Not even close:
The Amazon team. They're just rubbish Mordheim weapon snips.
