Subbuteo Tribute Website.
Being a painter of fantasy wargaming figures myself, I've tried to tidy up some "home-painted" second hand teams, and found it extremely difficult. So this page is dedicated to some of the regular contributors to the site, Joe Butt, Stefano Montecchiesi, and Wayne Smith, who have really improved on the original Subbuteo paintwork. Perhaps Hasbro could release special limited collectors editions of teams to this quality - they'd certainly have a few takers!!
A quick warning to team painters. Subbuteo is becoming collectable, so make sure you don't use any teams of value when you're doing this!Joe Butt's Teams.
Joe painted these teams in the early 1980s, when he became frustrated by the quality of teams turned out by Subbuteo themselves. Joe's aim was to paint a kit of each team in the English League, and this is just a very small selection. The Southampton kit is his favourite, but I also really like the West Brom kit with the bold strips and non-smoking chest advertisment. And yes, the Man City kit does have the "Philips" logo written across its chest. Stefano Montecchiesi's Teams. Stefano kindly sent me a JPG of twenty-four of his home painted teams. I was going to take a selection from this, but my favourites keep changing. So here they all are - pick your own favourites :-)
001 Sampdoria 1990/91 (Italian Championship winner)
013 Galatasaray (1999/00)
019 Giamaica (Jamaica) '98
