Now I have some ideas of what I would like my throwers to be doing. I think the standard thrower pose that you get for most teams is okay, but a bit unOrcky. The one arm outstretched pointing at something across the field the other holding the ball, arm bent ready to throw. You know the one I mean.
I just think an Orc would never look that accomplished at throwing.
My idea is to get an Orc thrower to look like it is doing a rugby throw in. Two hands on the ball just above their head.
To me that feels and looks how an orc would throw the ball.
So I find myself in a situation where I could just add the standard bloodbowl orc thrower miniature, which would look fine and in keeping with the squad with some minor armour adjustments, or I could buy some miniatures to make the throwers I won't. The big thing here is cost and to a lesser extent time.
With the current range of GW models I could have just bought an Orc team. Kit bashing is the more expensive option. If there was a team not yet available that you want, then kit bashing one is a good option, but if the team is available, like the orcs are, it becomes a balance between cost and creative freedom. I really like how my Orc team is looking, I like that it will be different to the standard orc teams. But is it worth it to buy some more models just to make the 2 throwers? Sure I have an idea of what I want them to look and I have seen a couple of models that would do the trick.
So that is where I am with the thowers undecided. Ultimately it comes down to create freedom and following through on my design/theme ideas, or just filling in at the fraction of the cost.
