Thanks to my opponents - although the Hillshire Halfpints didn't cause the Wood Elves much grief, being able to claim a victory over the underworld creepers and denying Koji's Elves his 5th touchdown in spectacular fashion made it a fun day!

A big thanks to my, (I will not say opponents) coaches for the games. Especially Underdweller who walked me through the rules and never hesitated to run back over and sort out a "who's in who's tacklezone" puzzle. Bloodbowl is a great game. As I was telling MIJ, I never really got into it, and I don't know why. I think that as I grew up surrounded by be-mulleted, mouth breathing, tobacco-chewin', foot-ball playin', ignoramuses, it never held the exotic, escapist appeal of traditional sci-fi or fantasy. That being said, I did spend a bit of time after tidying up sorting through bitz and pondering how I might cobble together a couple of Flesh Golems out of 40K Ork Nobz...... Everything is on 25mm bases, right? :mrgreen:

It's a game of mayhem and randomness! I would've thought it'd be right up your alley!
IMHO GW's best work (well 3rd ed. 1st and 2nd ed had the great concept but the execution involved looking up many, many tables...as i guess was more the norm in those days).

base size doesnt really matter, as long as the mini fits into the square, ish (see treemen and minotaurs for edge-cases). Standard size used to be 25mm rounds for humans, 40mm for ogres and such, but tbh square bases are fine, too. I thiiiiink the new pitch has bigger squares, and the teams may be on the new fangled 32mm size bigmarine bases, but Ystreak will know better than I on that count.


Anyway, tl;dr - any base is fine.

Glad you had a good time guys. I've found myself a Blood Bowl group here and they are playing League games with the new teams af far as I can see. 6 teams total. I have a feeling I will be taking the reigns of the Chaos guys.

Lovejoy and others new to the game. I was trained by MiJ and Grim Ironjaw who love their BB. Here's some quick tips. Do all your sure uncomplicated unchallenged movement of players first, back up your players with assists as much as possible to get the extra dice, roll these in sequence of which has the highest. Pick up the ball and Blitz last unless there is absolutely nothing to else to do that turn.
I wish I had known this formula years ago because you can apply it to most tabletop wargames. :)
Forget about yesterday, don't worry about tomorrow because all that matters is today.
