Skeleton with a Chainsaw. Need I Say More?

I know, Zombies are the hotness, but I've always preferred Skeletons.  Skeletons just have more style.
It's probably because I saw Jason & The Argonauts as a kid in the theater, and Harryhausen's Skeletons were amazing. Zombies are fun.. I did watch the season premiere of Walking Dead just now, but my vote still goes to Skeletons.

And what's cooler than a Skeleton?  A Skeleton with a chainsaw!

Luckily, there is a Blood Bowl Star Player that is a Skeleton with a Chainsaw!
Hack Enslash.

He's probably not the best Chainsaw Star Player... not by a long shot, though he does have side step which is interesting. But any Chainsaw wielder is worth fielding.

So when I remembered that I did have another resin goblin skeleton from the Titan Forge set, I decided my Ingolstadt Immortals should have another Star Player!

This Goblin Skeleton has a more elaborate helmet, with a bat crest, which I didn't favor compared to the bare skull skeletons, so I originally skipped using him, figuring I didn't need more than 6 linemenish players.

Plus, his arm was heavily integrated with a thick shield and I didn't want to do the work ;)  But deciding on the Chainsaw Star Skellie meant that a fancy helmet was appropriate, and I'd just have to deal with the extra arm carving.

So here is the conversion:

YuuhN-na-na-na-na...


So if the team needs a star and can't afford Count Luthorc VonDrakenborc they'll know where to turn.

He looks excellent well worth the effort of chopping the shield down.
