    Oh, hey, Dwarf dice are back in stock, along with four other themed sets and the Dwarf/Skaven pitch.

    ...because dragons are AWESOME! That's why.

    I managed to grab Dwarf dice and a pitch the first time around. I'm super happy they are available again. It's silly how fast they sold out.

    Tomorrow game against underworld denizens. I've never payed against that. I guess the objective is to take the Skaven blitzers out of the game and stay away from the Troll?

    Edit:
    2:1 for the elves.
    I need some players with tackle I think. Stunty dodgers are really annoying.
    The two strength 4 blitzers continue to be the most valuable players just for the fact of how much attention they get. The two of them can bind half the enemy team which is really helpful when you're constantly outnumbered.

    Preview of new stuff is up on WC

    https://warhammer-community.com/2017/08/07/minotaurs-renegades-and-fantasy-football-your-forge-world-preview/

    The Minotaur looks really good and I'm looking forward to replacing my old metal elves. The render looks quite nice and according to reports from the latates BB event their models are supposed to be more modular than the sets we got so far.

    The elves look great. No desire to grab them myself, but I love seeing them.

    those guys look like they would be awesome in a harlequin
    styled color scheme.

    With the dynamic poses, masks, and faces on the knee pads there are already similar to Harlequins. I've also seen some Elf teams converted from the plastic Harlequins. There's some crossover potential.

    Mix them with Harlequin parts to make Wood Elves (especially Wardancers).

    Second loss in a row in the league. This time a 2:3 against a Skaven team that already had a done another season.

    He had taken a few casualties in the game before, but still had four gutter runners with block and some side step and one with leap and other skills. I couldn't really touch those without having tackle on anyone.

    Could've turned out better if I had been able to break armour and hadn't failed two catches in a row with re-rolls (double snake eyes).

    Only one new skill (mighty blow on a strength 4 blitzer), so still no tackle against the next match against humans.

    A really fun match. Much more interesting than playing against bash teams.

    So my best friend is getting married and wants to have a nerd weekend bachelor party. He said he'd like to do a Blood Bowl tournament at the bar (my local bar has no issues with us playing Blood Bowl there). So I ran with the idea.

    He isn't normally on this board but if you are Brandon, don't you dare click on the spoilers.
    I'm having two custom pitches made from DeepCut studios. It's a snowy pitch with Meat Box Invitational in the center. Meat Box is a dumb nickname he got labeled with years ago. I'm so excited about the surprise that I had to tell someone so I'm doing it here.

    That is a cool thing.

    Next league game is against the human team again that I lost 0-2 against last time. If I want to keep a tiny chance to get back into the top ranks I'll have to win this time.

    He got a little bit of a beating in his last game against the Undead so he’ll get 200k of inducements while still having more players than me. He already threatened to take a wizard…

    Hilariously my elves have a better chance of winning the crowd award than the league at the moment. The crowd award counts all the inflicted casualties and otherwise injured opposing players of the games. I’m currently in second place with 14 points after 5 games.

    So that game's result was a bit meh. 1:1 and I only managed a single completion. No casulties either, so the crowd award is getting pretty difficult, too.

    Defense worked pretty well for most of the match.

    My bad luck was pretty laserfocused on a few critical moves during offense. I made every dodge except the two times the ball carriers had to make a 2+ dodge and rolled snake eyes. In addition to that when I was on offense in the second half we rolled a riot and 8 out of the 10 players I had on the pitch went down, while only 1 of the humans was knocked over.

    We also played with special play cards. As a result my guard lineman was pretty useless as he couldn't assist with blocks and fouls. On the other hand I usde a rune to throw the human ball carrier into the tackle zone of my blitzer, which was fun.

    The fisticuff award goes to my thrower. While he wasn't able to catch a ball that bounced into him three times in a row in one turn, he pow'ed on every block he made and broke armour three out of four times. If only the wound rolls turned out better..

    Weekend has Elven Union team, dice, pitch, Blood Bowl Almanach and some other stuff going up for preorders.

    According to the local shop, Goblin pitch and winter pitch will also be available.

    Tomorrow's my last league game of the season. 1st and 2nd place are out of reach so no chance to pla for 1st place in the play off game in January. With a win and some luck i can make it into the playoffs for 3rd place. To bad the game is against the currently second place holder, an Undead team.

  • Ken OKen O Registered User regular
    I'm going to end up picking up the almanac even if I say I don't want to pick up books I've already purchased. Everything in one hardcover book is pretty nice though.

    I don't think the core rules are in the almanac, so still two books. It might have some stuff that was only in WD on the other hand, like the special balls.

  • Ken OKen O Registered User regular
    I believe all the alternate rules from WD will be in there. So all the balls and stuff like the special refs should be there.

    Game against the undead turned into a bit of a desaster at the end of the first half when I fumbled two passes in a row in scoring distance and didn't get better when at the start of the second half 4 elves got k.o.-ed by a fire ball.

    0:3. One lineman ag-1.
