A to Z: Aligator

So looking at Paul's Bods blog, he's doing an 'A to Z' challenge sponsored by another blog, idea being to post once every day in April, other than Sundays, themed alphabetically. I always liked those kind of games when I was a kid in the car on road trips, like 'name locations starting with the letter of the last place's last letter (Egypt-Thailand-Denmark-Kuala Lumpur-etc) or Alphabetically name historical people, etc. So why not? A fun challenge and not very time consuming. I'll try to stick to hobby-related, but can't guarantee it. We'll just see how it goes.

So April 1st, let's start with A is for Alligator.

My favorite things I've painted so far in 2011 is my Alligator Blood Bowl Team.

Team Name: Cletus Crudwater Revilers.
-name is a bit of a pun on CCR of course: Creedence Clearwater Revival.
When they hit the pitch the band plays 'Born on a Bayou'
.. I still need to add a cheerleader and name her 'Suzie Q'.

Here they are, beating the pulp out of the Lothern Lions... ah, memories.

They are pretty cool, who makes them?
Superb paint job on them too.

Thank you!
These were sculpted by Roll Jordon, which is now manufacturing under the company name Greebo.

They're available through Impact Miniatures

The Kroxigor however is 'Snapjaw' from Privateer Press, for the game Hordes. I wanted something even bigger than the Sarcos Leviathan (which I play to use as Slibli).

Wow! Those are awesome looking reptilian-specimens! The Shen in the back is already complaining that we don't have good enough reptile miniatures. There goes the budget...

That is a sweet set! Very nicely done!

Paul´s Bods said...

Very good!!!! great to see you in on the A-Z challenge :-D Not many model /fig painters in on it...
great looking bunch of gators...will they put the "bite" on the opposition ??
PS...Have you added yourself to the list at Tossing it out?

Laughing Ferret said...

Thanks everyone. I think these would make great skirmish & rpg minis too. very easy to convert them to hold weapons... I've been tempted ;)

Paul: yep, I added my hat to the ring over there, so now I have no choice but to continue.

These are excellent! I love your attention to detail. Years ago, I painted figures. Loved it. But it was time consuming, and I moved on to other things.

I miss the focus and feeling of something accomplished when I was done. So. Stick with it, Ferret.

Look forward to your B and C!

absolutely beautiful team, Ferret! BB is my favorite game of all time andif I still had a league I'd be running a team like this!

Those alligators were so mean to my high elves! I cried a little on the inside (and outside)
