    My friend was underwhelmed by the D. Elves but I love them. I'm glad they didn't go over the top with them. I want to use the Chaos cheerleaders as players.

    they look super cool!

    They went in an interesting direction with the corsair look. A bit disappointed with static pose of the witch elf.

    What, handing someone their own heart like “oops, you dropped this…”?

    It's a very specific pose to have two of in the box.

  • Mr_RoseMr_Rose 83 Blue Ridge Protects the Holy Registered User regular
    I suspect the outstretched arm will have an alternate pose without the heart.

    League rematch against the Goblins. It was one of those games. Especially the first half. Not a single pow or successful dodge until turn 9. Meanwhile he broke through my armour every time except once.

    Second half was slightly better on my side even though his armour braking streak continued.

    For the cherry on top of course he got a quick snap on turn 16 exactly like the last time and managed to make every roll without RR for the otd.

    1:2. 1 dead, 2 mng. Next game against the reigning league champion and his undead.

  • honoverehonovere Registered User regular
    So I actually won 2:0 against the Undead. It helped that Tacklis, my star blitzer, took out a mummy with his first blitz in the game. He did the same in our game last season but I went and lost that one 0:3.

    Tacklis then went on to score the 1:0 in turn 5.

    First half then ended with a double skull, reroll, double skull for the ghoul with the ball, and thus his last chance to equalise in half one.

    Second half I got a Blitz in kickoff but still needed to turn 6 to score.

    I got a bit lucky when it came to injury rolls and only suffered one badly hurt.

    On the other hand, I wasn't able to make a single pass. Again.

    I love the video game version of this.

    How hard/expensive is it to get into tabletop?

    I should stick with xbox should't I?

    But I get to paint things and make things pretty if I play table top right?

    Honestly, it all depends on how far you wanna go. If youveant to give it a shot, buy the base game. Snap them mans together rrad the rules and find someone to play against.

    My local tabletop league was very easy to get into. There was no real requirement for miniatures besides 'easy to tell apart' so I started out playing undead and ork teams with generic fantasy minis before buying any of the official team boxes

    Most leagues are willing to loan teams to interested players as well

    Game six of the Nagarythe Nomads second season

    m1zjde1muw4u.jpg
    The Nomads' star blitzer Tacklis Dancekiller leading the offence

    Against Orcs. Their ranks were a bit depleted after their last game so he got 490k in inducements (Horatio the wizard, an extra special play card, 2 BW kegs, apo, merc blitzer). We also got sweltering heat and played with special play cards. The latter meant that one of my blitzers was immune to armour modifiers of all kinds and that my guard lineelf wasn't allowed to assist blocks and fouls.

    He recieved the ball, which scattered right behind his front line and we got high kick and so he started with the ball carrier in a readymade cage. He killed my AG5 lineelf in the second turn, but under pressure he had to score a bit too early in turn 5, letting me equalize in turn 7.

    Start of the second half looked good for me, but then one blitzer got struck by a fireball and the two linelfs guarding the thrower in the backfield got blown up by a mine. Accordingly the game moved into my side and after my blitzer got blackmailed into blocking my ballcarrier the orcs ended up with a blitzer and the ball one field away from the end zone. Aformentioned blitzer then went on to erase his treasonous shame, dodged through three tackle zones and took out the ballcarrying orc blitzer (the only time in the whole game I managed to break armour, with a MNG-casualty as the result no less). He then took the ball and ran it into the opposing end zone in turn 16. So he basically was the Toni Kroos of this game.

    End result 2:1 for the Nomads with 1:1 casualties.
    observations: miscellaneous mayhem special play cards seem much stronger than the other decks.

    Yeah, your league commissioner might want to look into the alternative SPC generation rules in the Almanac. Like the one that places different prices on different decks.

    Dark Elf preorder on July, 7th, release a week later, including dice, cards, special ball rules, pitch.

    draconic egg ball, bounces every turn and on a touchdown you roll for armour if you rolled a one.
    cold one hide ball, roll a dice evey turn, on a 1 the ball gets dropped. That one is really annoying for slow bashy teams.

    So my buddies bachelor party BB Tournament is at the end of this month. We're doing a budget of 1.1 and 150,000 for skills. I'm playing my Orc team since there is likely to be new people playing and it didn't feel fair to bring my Dwarfs.

    I've got my players bought. 2 throwers, 4 black orcs, 4 blitzers, and 2 linemen. Picking up 3 Rerolls leaves me with 40,000 left in the Treasury. What should I spend it on? Fan Factor? A mix of FF, Coaches, and Cheerleaders? A goblin?

    Drop a Thrower and use the leftover money to buy a Troll!

    I'm normally not a fan of the big guys. I've had their negative traits kick in too many times when I really needed them.

    Are there any restrictions on the skill selection? Because a Troll that starts with Guard and possibly Block can just stand there and support the rest of the team as a roadblock if you don't want to activate him.

  • Ken OKen O Registered User regular
    Only restrictions is 150,000 for skills and max 2 skills on a player.
    I don't actually own a troll, so I'd have to proxy if I went that way. The rest of the team is fully painted so I doubt I'll end up adding a Troll.

    On one hand a goblin could be helpful to give the ball to and score with some dodging. On the other hand he's a prime target for everyone as the only thing with less then Armour 9+

  • tzeentchlingtzeentchling Doctor of Rocks San DiegoRegistered User regular
    Then I'd probably just go with 2FF, a Coach, and a Cheerleader. You've got 12 players, a Goblin isn't going to add anything without a Troll to sometimes throw it unless you want a dedicated fouler, and for a bachelor's party that's probably not great.

    I guess it depends on your tournament rules but surely you need an apothecary?

  • Ken OKen O Registered User regular
    Roster resets between rounds so no need for an Apoth. I think spreading it out around the extras is the way to go. It might come n hand on some kickoff events.

    I still have a human team from the boxed set lying around. With the world cup going on the question is now Belgian home kit or Croatian away kit for the paint scheme?

  • SvenskaSvenska Registered User regular
    Belgian home for sure.

    Since your name means "swedish" in swedish, I just assumed you were, ya know, swedish.

    So last weekend was finally by buddy's bachelor party. The original plan was to have a tournament, sadly the other groomsmen didn't learn the game over the past 10 months.

    I still surprised the groom with two custom neoprene pitches for the tournament with a name based upon one of his old nicknames. Him and I had a game with his Dark Elves and my Orks. His dice betrayed him fiercely. After that we ran another game with the three others who were interested in learning now that it was right in front of them. That went great and we'll at least have some other players if we try a tournament again.

    I'll get some pictures posted later this week.

    This month's league game, againsst TV 1760k Chaos. 11 players with Block, 5 Mighty Blows, 6 players with St4 or higer plus all the Horns. Also two players more than on my team. At least there is only 1 tackler.

    I have to manage a draw at least to keep even a remote chance to keep up with the top.

    On the other hand, if I spend 10k from my treasury I can afford a wizard...

    Oof that's a nasty team.

    We recently set up a small league on Xbox. 4 players with 4 AI to pad it out. I decided to play something against my normal playstyle and went High Elf. My first game was against the AI Amazon team. I lost a Catcher on the third turn. Later that half I fumbled what would have been a touchdown pass. Game ended at 0-0.
