Tale of Tuesdays: SpaceShrimp Month 1 - Champions of Death

Introducing the first of my BloodBowl team for Tale of Tuesdays! Champions of Death - Spaceshrimp flavour.So despite being a really easy going and playful person in general, I actually take this hobby quite "seriously". What I mean by that is, I am not a fan of out of place conversions or paint schemes. If painting your Primaris like Buzz Lightyear is your thing, then power to you! Just totally not my approach at all. However, I think Bloodbowl lends it's self really well to having a bit of fun with the team names and themes and being a little bit silly.More after the jump

Tale of Tuesdays: Stahly's Month 1 - Naggaroth Nightmares WIP

Now it's my turn at Tale of Tuesdays. As you can see, as a lover for anything with pointy ears, my team of choice are Dark Elves, and I painted a test model already. I might change a couple of minor things, but in general, I'm happy with the paint scheme I came up with. My main sources for inspiration were the 'Eavy Metal Kabal of the Black Heart Drukhari army for the armour, cr0wmaster's Dark Elves from whom I nicked the turquoise undersuits, and the Idoneth Deepkin range in general. I wanted to go for a kind of nautic feel.Now, I must admit that I'm a bit of a cheat. As I don't play Blood Bowl but only the board game version Blitz Bowl, I'm not gonna paint a complete team. Blitz Bowl requires only six models, so I'm gonna paint half a team in half the time, then lean back and watch the others finish their teams. Sorry not sorry guys... ;)

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Wanderleagues

As the third lineplayer paintwise doesn't offer anything new compared to the other two, I'll talk a bit about my Wanderleague system today, but more about that in a moment. I've tried a little something on Gorhuk the Smelly. On the one hand, I'm just starting to love the color scheme of keeping the clothes […]

Gaming With The Kids at Ambush Wargames Show

Yesterday I took my two eldest to Ambush which is run annually by my FLGS at our local showground.  I wasn't sure what to expect, and how long they'd want to stay...After a look round the stalls we enjoyed an introductory game of Blood Bowl run by the local gaming club Wolds Wargamers.  Both of them had so much fun they wanted to buy a copy straight away! It was a close and very swingy game, ending in victory for my daughter from the jaws of defeat.Both wanted to have a go at painting so we grabbed a free mini each and spent an hour or so in the painting area while the painting competition was being judged.  Suffice to say we didn't produce anything that could compete!We all got talking about all sorts of games - we didn't even get to play any of the boardgames which I thought they would make a beeline for - and my son even wanted to have a quick game of Infinity when we got home, so all in all a positive experience.Is this a shameless plug? Maybe … but it was a great event, all very friendly,

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Old Blood

The team's four Blitzers all have an individual history and when I looked through the old background snippets some time ago, I just realized how much character the most offensive part of the team had. Borag Oldblood is the team's oldest player and by the way, the only remaining player of the original squad, long […]

In the background of the Maulers story, I mentioned that there was a tryout and those of you who have followed the Journey of the Maulers so far, will notice that the following two players are Rikoth and Rotfang.
