Bog Trogs: Something from the deep hits the Blood Bowl Pitch!

The latest commission project finished: a different take on Slann for Blood Bowl.
The client wanted something different than the current options for Slann: something "Mean-looking, not Kermit" were pretty close to his words.  I came up with a few options, but the one he liked best was making a team out of the Bog Trogs from Hordes by Privateer Press. I thought they'd fit the bill: very amphibious looking and certainly mean looking faces.
They remind me of some of the illustrations from the old AD&D module...

On to the team!

-These are my favorite on the team.. I'm just really liking the coral color against the drab light green.

Client wanted different colors for the different type positions, so I went with alight color skin for these fast & fragile players.

Strong & sturdy so I went for a darker bold color. The unit leader of the Bog Trogs, with his gator skin, seemed just right for a blitzer. Worth taking a peek from the back to see it:

Speaking of seeing other details, look at the little stuff hanging from their belts... crabs, sea shells, fish & an octopus lunch, or as I am now used to calling them: 'Osmonog"

And no team is really complete without some tokens..
Had to have some frogs! These will mark Turn, Score & Re-rolls.

The Full Team picture is now in the 'Hall of Fame' which is a separate page you can click under the top banner.
