    Hello all.

    As I mentioned in my returning post, I'm back to the game hopefully online and on the tabletop, having purchased both BB2 for the PC and the boxed game from my local game store. My local game store has a pretty good group attached and around 40 people have expressed interest in a local Blood Bowl league post-lockdown.

    My wife has claimed the Orcs for her own, determined to paint them in something approximating the Greenbay Packers NFL team. This has left me with the Human team to paint and start my return to tabletop with (no bad thing as I'm a fan of them online).

    Now, I'm similarly seeking NFL inspiration for my team, tossing around a few ideas, but I haven't settled on anything yet - they're not going to be painted for a few weeks whilst I work through some other miniatures.

    Does anyone else have experience with Blood Bowl teams in NFL colours? I'd love to hear and see what folks have done out there!

    Packers? Then the opposing team has to be DA BARES

    Thanks Coach, those are great. Also really enjoy seeing some old school miniatures.

    I've been looking through current team uniforms and my limited paint collection. I'm leaning toward a black and teal scheme based on the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    I am considering painting the GW orcs as the Orcland Raiders in the Black and Silver of the real Raiders, after I finish painting the Skaven team. I used to be a big Raiders fan long ago when I could be bothered with the NFL (ie in the 80s).

    I agree that would be a great scheme for Orcs.

    If I had steady hands, I'd give that a bash.

    If anyone here is painting up teams, maybe I could offer some suggestions of schemes and appropriate races?

    Minnesota Vikings: Norse, Amazon.
    New York Jets: High Elf, Skaven, Kislev
    Pittsburgh Steelers: Goblin, Orcs, Skaven
    Cleveland Browns: Wood Elf, Elven Union
    Cincinnati Bengals: Skaven, maybe Lizardmen?
    Chicago Bears: Orcs, Chaos Dwarves, Khemri
    San Francisco 49ers: Chaos, Dark Elves
    Tennessee Titans: Human, Dwarves
    Green Bay Packers: Nurgle
    Carolina Panthers: Lizardmen, Amazon, Kislev
    New England Patriots: Dwarves, Chaos Dwarves
    Oakland Raiders: Goblin, Chaos Dwarves, Nurgle, Norse
    Phillidelphia Eagles: Underworld Denizens, Halfling
    Atlanta Falcons: Human, Ogre, Skaven, High Elves

    I think St. Louis Rams or New Orleans Saints would be amazing on Khemri.

    Classic miniatures, really like how you've done them.

    I've just spray undercoated 3 test miniatures for my new Dark Elf team, so I'll be working on my new scheme soon.

    To toss in an idea I'm running with: Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the Dark Elves. They even canonically have Black Fleet teams made up of pirates!
