The film Tremors has long been my favorite Creature Feature and ever since the tale Perfection, Nevada was told in 1990 I’ve attempted to incorporate giant worms or bugs into all of my post-apocalyptic gaming.
Unfortunately, I don’t get out to many Warhammer Underworlds tournaments, but for games I really enjoyed, I’ve always liked have a little display base for my models. Nothing fancy, just something big enough for a warband or team’s worth of figs. Living in a smaller home, storage is an issue, so making and storing something like a display base has to take a few things into consideration. Namely… a low profile. Fortunately, a friend had a spare Arcane Ruins set which provided exactly what I needed.
As a big fan of Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire I was pleased with the news last year of a second Underworld location….the Nightvault. Not an entirely unique locale the Nightvault is deep within the heart of the Mirrored City, Shadespire. More importantly though…more warbands!
So… when I first started this site, it was mostly about terrain, and occasionally about minis. Then, Games Workshop went and announced that they were re-releasing my favorite game, Blood Bowl, complete with all new miniatures. As a result, for more than a year now, I have focused mostly on new minis for Blood Bowl, along with occasionally writing about other games. This has been a little bit of a dilemma for me since I dislike painting minis so much. What got me into the hobby in the first place was pictures of really awesome terrain that I saw on websites like TerraGenesis. While keeping up with Blood Bowl releases, I got away from the part I liked most about this hobby… the terrain.
Soooooooo….. I guess it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. There are a number of reasons for that, and I won’t bore anyone with the details. The good news is that I’m back and I have something really cool to share with you guys.
Well, thanks to the Holiday madness, this post is going up about a week later than I originally planned. Life happens… at least it’s finally getting posted. So far we have looked at the new Elven Union team, all the new pitches, and the Team Card Packs. Now we’re going to take a look at the Inaugural Blood Bowl Almanac. The Almanac is a collection of Blood Bowl rules and information from Death Zone Season One and Two and White Dwarf articles, as well as a few other tidbits. the material may be familiar to anyone who has been keeping up with releases, but the Almanac sure does do a good job of pretty up the presentation.
Welcome back to another riveting installment of December 2017 Blood Bowl releases! Last time we took a look at all three pitches that have been released this month. Today we focus on the new Human, Orc, and Elven Union Team Card Packs. These new Team Card Packs are a little bit of a departure from previous Blood Bowl card decks that we have seen. Previous decks have contained only additional Special Play cards, but the new Team Card Packs include quite a bit more.
In yesterday’s post, we took a look at the new Elven Union team and the accompanying Elven Union dice set. Today, we break open all three new pitches (OK, so one of them isn’t EXACTLY new) that hit stores shelves in the last few days. Did I really NEED three more pitches for Blood Bowl? Of course not, but it’s not like I WASN’T going to buy pretty much anything that Games Workshop released for Blood Bowl. Well played Games Workshop… well played.
For a while now, Games Workshop has been teasing us with images of the Elven Union team, and a new pitch to match. Andy Hoare even said several times that the team would be out by Christmas, so I was not surprised a few weeks ago when I heard that Blood Bowl pre-orders were about to be released. Once I saw the list, however, I was actually surprised by several things. I didn’t expect the Human and Orc team card packs, the hard backed Blood Bowl Almanac, nor the new Goblin pitch. Honestly, I had even forgotten about the reports that the Blood on the Snow pitch would be available again this Holiday Season. Once I saw the full list, I simply sighed and started rounding up things to put on Craigslist and eBay so that I could pay for them… Being a completionist is never easy, or cheap.
