Re-posting these pics by request...

After several years of planning, and life getting in the way, I finally got to work on my Bruins Legends Table (starting with a Halex Canadian edition Stanley Cup table). The first step, painting the players, is complete. This took a long time as I had to shave and fill the ribs and grooves on the jerseys and socks to make the complex stripes look good. I tried to incorporate as many different uniforms as possible while maintaining the right number of players at each position and including the Bruins' Hall Of Famers and significant moments. I had to make some compromises, but I'm really pleased with the results.

Light Jersey Team

Goalie: Tim Thomas 2010 Winter Classic. Special features include the Malarchuk (throat protector) and the tribute to the late Bruins' broadcaster Fred Cusick on the helmet.










Center: Milt Schmidt in the 1948-49 25th anniversary jersey:






Left Wing: John Bucyk in the 1960's gold jersey:






Right Wing: Dit Clapper in the 1926-1931 jersey. This uniform is the Bruins' original colors of brown and gold, and is the jersey worn when they won their first Stanley Cup.






Right Defense: Brad Park in the 1975-76 jersey, which was Park's first year in Boston and Orr's last. Note the Massachusetts bicentennial patches on the shoulders.








Left Defense: Ray Bourque in the love-it-or-hate-it bear-drowning-in-mustard Pooh-bear jersey. Note the face shield and snaps.









Black Jersey Team

Goalie: Gerry Cheevers in the 1977 and 1978 Stanley Cup Final jersey, which is when I started watching the Bruins as a kid. I used a McFarlane replica to mimic the holes and the stitch pattern on the helmet.










Left Defense: Zdeno Chara in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final jersey. I would have preferred the white jersey they wore in the clincher, but that would have limited my options for other players:








Left Wing: Terry O'Reilly in the late 70's jersey:








Center: Phil Esposito in the 1973-74 50th anniversary jersey:








Right Wing: Cam Neely in the mid-1990's through mid-2000's jersey:








Right Defense: Bobby Orr in the 1970 Stanley Cup flying goal jersey:

Awesome! I'm the guy that posted a few photos last year of a similar Bruins project- I really like what you have done here. Its inspiring for me to finish my teams as well. I really like Bourque's shield- Chara's beard- Cheever's mask- Thomas' mask- Dit Clapper!!- Milt Schmidt!! man, this is cool- Now all you need is a Hab fan as dedicated as you are and has the same idea brewing. What epic table hockey games you could wage!

You've got to make an Eddie Shore!! Maybe the 2nd greatest Bruin of all time- open the debate flood gates now!! Great work- I just bought a 2nd Sportcraft game like yours, so I might have to do my hometown stinking up the cellar of the standings Blue Jackets. Jackets-Red Wings? Nothing lopsided about that ha ha.

Actually, my inspiration came from the Habs fan that posted the pics of his awesome Bell Center game:

Regarding Eddie Shore, he's one of the compromises I had to make. I sacrificed him because I would have had to compromise another player and paint scheme to make the positions work out, and because despite his Hall Of Fame status as a hockey player he was also a Hall Of Fame ****hole off the ice.

It is adhesive-backed wood grain shelf paper from Home Depot and it works awesome. I also used real hockey tape on the blade and in between the hands. The skates are coated with Plasti-Dip, also from Home Depot, to keep them from getting chipped up. I also replaced the bright button head screws with black oxide coated flatheads to conceal them better.

Terrible, just terrible. You should throw those in the garbage now.

P.S. What's your address and what day is garbage pickup?


Wow, beautiful work. Must be hard to play though, I'd be caught up looking at the details on those players.

Thanks for reposting the pix. These are fantastic! Nice detail. I am a rookie and just starting my table. It's an old Harvard game table that was falling apart. I am doing a Blackhawks legends table, the painting is taking me a lot longer than I thought. I will post when I have something worthy of showing.

One question: For the numbers and logos, I was going to use Testors decal paper. It looks like you may have used white label paper? Did you use that on everyting...even Thomas' helmet?

Nice Work!

I used Avery shipping labels because I thought they'd be more puck resistant than decal paper.

On Thomas' helmet the backplate, Bruins' logo, and Fred Cusick are printed. Everything else is hand painted.

What did you use to fill in the face mask on Cheevers? I have a similar style goalie and want to do a Tony Esposito.

What did you use for the logos on your table...center ice? Is it painted or a decal? I was debating whether I should paint or use stickers.
