My apologies for the late post, but this Saturday (when I normally post) I took part in my first Blood Bowl tournament, the delightfully titled "2 Fanitball, 2 Furious" hosted by my local BB/Guildball club Fanitball. The tournament was between teams from two clubs Fanitball and SKABB (South Kent Area Blood Bowl) and each club put forward 6 players.
I tried to remember to take pictures but the timings of the rounds were deliberately tight due to the venue being double booked!
The disparity between the abilities of the players was evident by the results with SKABB being made up of veteran players and Fanitball with just 3 of us having played the game more than a handful of times (myself, Damon and our team captain Andi). My own results were 1-1-1 (W-L-D) and our capt lost all 3 of his! Damon however won two of his games and drew the other and ended up coming 2nd individually. The rest us filled up from the bottom.... That said I was second in our team!
|My team - The Ramsgate Razors|
|Another Dark Elf team from Sukubus Miniatures, wielded by the overall tournament winner!|
|Damon used my Human Team to good effect, coming in second place overall|
|Chaos Dwarf team, really lush minis from Comixininos, SKABB team member and my final opponent. (they beat me!)|
|Capt Andi's Amazons|
|Really nice Necromantic team|
|Orc team (with actual Orcs... and Troll)|
|Wood Elves, they scored the most TDs in the comp but I beat these guys into the dirt...|
|Another Orc team, but represented by "Cutiemals" from Greebo Games, not my cup of tea but definitely different!|
The tournament was resurrection style with 5 "normal" and 1 "doubles" skill to distribute among your players. Results aside, the day was amazing fun and I got to play against teams that I hadn't played before and in fact inspired to purchase the teams myself. I cannot wait for the return fixture!
hope you enjoy
