In 30 years of being involved with Blood Bowl…I’ve never run a Chaos team. Chaos generally isn’t a big faction of mine and the Khorne flavor of the generic Chaos team never appealed. I’m actually more of a Tzeentch or Nurgle gamer if it came to it, but Chaos in general traditionally doesn’t do anything for me. It’s ironic then that I’ve painted so much of it the past few years…
In the early 00’s, I managed an Undead BB team to quite a bit of success. Winning tournaments with them in Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas. Almost 20 years later…I’m bringing the franchise to Blitz Bowl.
I finally got around to completing all of the necessary terrain features for three Blitz Bowl boards as well as all of my team tokens.
Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, I had an early summer weekend of gaming set aside for friends. One of the events was going to be a Blitz Bowl tournament. When I run fantasy sport games, such as Blood Bowl and DreadBall, I like to include a ‘relegation’ table of sorts. This is a table with its own set of zany rules where the combined lowest ranked teams play for a given week. This adds a bit of the wild flavor you read about in the fluff of these games while making the bottom table matches more interesting than just a losers field. Here are the three types of matches that were to be played on the ‘Pub Table’.
The GAMA trade show has finally brought us some much anticipated Blood Bowl news, and boy was it a surprise to some! Speculation had run the gambit on the next team to see the light of day and personally I will admit that I was surprised. The crew of WSTZ discusses the design of the new diminutive team and Jeff works his wizardry to translate this team onto the Blitz Bowl circuit!
Anyone I know fortunate enough to have a go at GW’s Blood Bowl Universe intro game, Blitz Bowl, has had a grand time. Released only in select markets its availability is limited which is a shame as this is a fantastic refinement of the Blood Bowl concepts by designer James Hewitt. This isn’t a review of the game or its mechanics, there are plenty of those to be found online, but how this limited release title enabled this hobbyist to finally be able to build a little Blood Bowl themed terrain.
