Cryptkickers (Undead) vs Bog Port Bloaters (Nurgle) for Blood Bowl

I haven't done one of these for a while, but last night my Undead faced off against a great looking Nurgle team, so I got quite a few pictures and I may as well share them! Right now we're in the middle of a season of Blood Bowl at my FLGS. This was my 3rd game of the season and one I knew would be tough. Nurgle is a difficult team to face in general, and I'm trying to relearn the Undead too. So, I wasn't quite sure how to approach the game. Cryptkickers vs Bog Port Bloaters John, my...continue reading

Ev's Challenge - The Final Chapter

So the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge has come to an end for another year. And what a ride it's been! I've minioned for the first time (big shout-out to the Wednesday Warriors!), and I've produced a varied assembly of fantasy figures.So what have I learned?Preparation, above all. While I could get away with doing things on the fly in previous years, work commitments plus the weekly minioning meant that I really should have gone in with a proper plan. I'm severely ADHD and a worrier by nature, so lack of preparation really is the enemy.Try and vary the subject matter. I have so many historical, 40K and horror figs still in the lead mountain, yet this time round it was almost all fantasy, and I think this got me in a bit of a rut. Realistic targets. After last year, when I actually cracked 500 points, I thought I could do the same again. Not so, topped out at 479, worse luck! Time and resources are limited, and I have to take this into account next time.Anyway, enough of the self-reproach, here's

Chronicles of Thor #7: Blood Bowl, Painting Tutorials & Organizing

It's been a busy month for me and I feel like I've gotten quite a bit accomplished. Let's see... Undead Team (Cryptkickers) If you missed it, I managed to get my Undead team all painted up for Blood Bowl, who I have named the Cryptkickers. I had a blast working on the team and managed to get them done early for #Squaduary. Next week starts our 4th season of Blood Bowl at my FLGS, hence the rush on the team. Here's the roster I've come up with: Ghoul x 2Wight x 2Mummy x 2SkeletonZombie x 4Re-rolls x 3 That puts...continue reading

Journey of the Maulers: Team Logos

In my article, Blood Bowl: Solo Campaigns, I've talked about how the backstory of a team contributes significantly to the immersion in a solo campaign and that I'm actually following that method in the Journey of the Maulers series. For the fans I already did this, as each of them got a few lines of […]

Blitz Bowl - Five Player Dungeon Bowl

After successfully trying out a four player 'Crossroads' game for Blitz Bowl a few months back, we decided next to use some old Warhammer Quest tiles and some Frostgrave chests to play a five player Dungeon Bowl game.Dungeon Bowl is a variant of Blood Bowl that uses chests which either explode or contain a ball.  There are also twelve teleporters that can be used to randomly teleport players around the dungeon (using a roll of a D12).  As you can imagine, Dungeon Bowl using Blitz Bowl rules is even more chaotic and random than a normal game of Blitz Bowl....The first part of the game was each team searching for the ball hidden in one of the trapped chests scattered throughout the dungeon.  Unfortunately, we quickly realized that the game wasn't working well.  The high number of players we had selected and the small width of the corridors made movement difficult, even with the teleporters.So Dungeon Bowl using Blitz Bowl rules was a bust, but I'm still glad we tried it out.  It makes m

Undead Blood Bowl Team Painting Showcase (Cryptkickers)

I knew when I saw this team that I had to have it. I think the Undead team is the best looking one Games Workshop has put out for Blood Bowl - hands down. Also, I'm not normally one for undead/zombie things either, but these are just awesome. Also, I wanted to take a break from my Human team, the Titan Bay Thunderhawks. I've run them in 3 seasons at my FLGS and it was time for a change. I've been hoping GW would put out a Norse team soon (my favorite team), but I'm not going to hold my...continue reading

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Fink da Fixer

Since I rebuild the Maulers with a narrative approach and would also try to follow that in play, I've of course taken a look at the new rules and discovered the section for (in)famous coaching staff. The nice thing about the section is that the new staff are not optional but official rules, which means […]

Starting Work For The New Year

For the last week or so I have been feeling a little disconcerted. Despite a few hours a day trying to figure out what it's all about. I have come to the conclusion that I haven't painted enough minis. Go figure.Soooo...The main reason why I am not painting of last is that I don't have much a place to work. What I do have is a puff. In truth it is a very comfortable place to put my feet but It's not a workbench. It is what I have at the moment.wasI guess painting is out of the question. My eyesight is not the greatest and I am kind of dependant on using a magnifying lamp. Given the "workbench situation" I can only do what I can do. So this is it.As part of the overall plan I was going to do some Blood Bowl stuff. I only have a few figures to hand so I thought I could at least get things started. Some of the stuff I got last year were the Doom Lords. Chaos is one of my favourite teams to play. Bashing things in Blood Bowl is where it's at for me. It lacks a little flair maybe but it feels good when you see you

Blitz Bowl - Four Player Crossroads

I completed a custom four player "Crossroads" pitch for Blitz Bowl games before the holidays.  It was made from some felt from JOANN Fabrics and Crafts and a black Sharpie pen, (I tried to use a white fabric marker, but it went dry much too easily and had to switch to the Sharpie early on).Over the holidays we played a few four-player games on it and have had a great time each time we have played.The rules are a little different - the first team to score ten points wins....  You get five points for a touchdown and one point for causing an injury.  We use two balls at all times and the only rule we changed (in addition to no cards) is that if a player starts your turn prone, you can attempt to injure that player by using a Block action; if you roll a result that forces an armor roll, there is a -2 penalty to the armor roll. It is a benefit to crunchy teams....In the center, we placed a single statue of Nuffle, which also throws out the balls at the start of the game (and whenever a touchdown is

Outlook 2019 – The hobbywhip for the boss

While Dennis summarized 2018 in his annual review quite smoothly, I‘ll take a look into the glass orb for 2019 and do what a true hobbyist can do best: make plans and try to do everythin possible that they turn out differently! Accordingly my main point on the list of good intentions for the new […]
