Title: Thinking of making my own custom Blood Bowl Pitch
Post by: GJK on June 28, 2013, 09:37:37 PM
So I've been getting into Blood Bowl lately (boardgame and mini's version and some PC version).  I have my mini's all painted (and more mini's ordered and on the way) and so now I'm thinking of making a custom "pitch" (field and stadium).  I've found some online blueprints and have seen pic's of lots of pitches that look really good.  I like the idea of the "portable" pitch: where it folds up into a "suitcase" and you can easily store it or carry it to the FLGS for a game. 

Here's some pics of some really nice pitches that I've gathered.  Some of these are just really over the top.  That last stadium is particularly interesting to me for some reason....

Also found some instructions from guys that made their own stadiums and then posted the instructions.  Here's a couple:

I like the way he did the squares on that one.  I prefer a full square to just the "+" looking corners for some reason.  Here's another that just has the "+" for the squares but it's a neat idea using tile spacers to make them:

So I'm not sure how or what style I'll use.  Likely a combo of the above.  I bought several craft materials tonight and may get started tomorrow or over the weekend.  Let me know what you guys like or if you have any ideas!

Most that I have seen that use just the '+' do not look all that good (maybe because they are usually just painted on), but seeing that one you linked to that uses the tile spacers the '+' seems to work. I'm thinking the more portal the better.

If I was going to full-on pimp out a game, Blood Bowl would be an excellent choice IMO.
