Ash River Falcons WIP

I have been steadily working on a new Blood Bowl team for a tournament this weekend, The Carnage Cup. My club, Ordo Fanaticus is the tournament organizer. In addition to Blood Bowl, 40K and AoS will also be main attractions.

Here is a brief rundown of the rules.

Team building:
Teams get 1,100,000 gold pieces to construct their roster
A maximum of 2 star players may be taken
Teams can purchase re-rolls, apothecaries (if allowed), coaches, cheerleaders & fan factor
Teams may also include bribes as part of the roster as per the standard inducement cost
Chefs can only be purchased by Halfling team

Skill Packs:
you may only give a player one skill in addition to what they already are equipped with
no skill may be acquired via skill pack more than twice
choose 6 "points" of skills where normal skills cost 1 point, and double skills cost 2

Tournament Scoring:
Win: 3 points
Loss: 0 points
Tie: 1 point
Casualties: 1 point if your casualties caused exceeds your opponents

The team is a kit bashed Khemri/Tomb Kings team. The linemen, Anointed Throwers and Anointed Blitzers are comprised of various era WHFB/AoS skeletons and the Tomb Guardians are based off Crypt Horrors.

A portion of the team fully assembled prior to priming. I attempted zenith highlighting, but it came out too subtle.

In addition to the team, I have a Coach, the Star Player Ithica Benoin, 2 Assistant Coaches/Turn and Score Markers, 3 Cheerleaders/Re-Roll Markers, and a ball.

The Coach (not pictured above) is a GW AoS Wight King.

The additional Bitz I used to kit bash this project were Thousand Sons helmets and shoulder pads, Necron Lychguard heads, Kroot shoulder pads, and Dreamforge Eisenkern Stormtrooper shoulder pads.

Lastly, I of coarse designed a team logo.

Its gonna be close getting everything done in time!
