HDWSBBL at NAF Championships 2515

Hello Blood Bowl Coaches and Fans alike,

 

Last weekend coaches from around the Old World flocked to Albion to partake in the greatest and largest Blood Bowl tournament – the NAF Championships.

 

The games were thick and fast but when the dust settled the results for the HDWSBBL coaches were

  • The Doc 3-1-2 with the Naggaroth Black Crows Dark Elves and 51st place (from 150 coaches)
  • Sandwich 2-0-4 with the Gog Magog Gladiator ogres and 129th place overall but 9th for casualties caused.

But performance of the weekend was 2514 Superbowl Champion Purplegoo (rumoured to be making a return to the HDWSBBL after a season away) who finished 3rd coaching Wood Elves.

 

Congratulations to all who attended and we hope to get more HDWSBBL-ers to the next NAFC in 2516!

 

See you pitchside,

 

The Doc.

 

 

Season 9 – Week 3 – League and Cup Double!

 

Well here we are again, another round of the Burners getting hammered, the Hut hitting someone, the Fairies being a joke and the Vixens being the Vixens.

 

Blackburners vs Temper Bay Marauders

Another bad game for the Burners, Temper Bay hand them a convincing 2-0 defeat. The Burners are really struggling this season, I say that every game, and it gets a little more emphatic each round. There were some moments of hilarity, such as a Hobgoblin managing to down the Mads troll. He was so surprised he walked off to the dugout and rethought his life. He came to the conclusion that he was hungry and wandered back onto the pitch in the second half. The Burners lost their own big guy to a boulder hurled by one of the catapults the Orc crowd had brought in (surely that should have been confiscated at the gate?), it largely sealed the deal for this match.

 

Bloodjaws vs Brewers

The Jaws clearly had their rhythm broken in their last game against the Savages and the Brewers are many things, but not a team to let opportunities pass. However, despite being behind for much of the match, the Bloodjaws once again rallied in the second half for a draw. These sort of comebacks seem typical of the Jaws, who are proving themselves a team that get going when the going gets tough.

 

Comets vs Big Society

There was a whole lot of scoring going on in this game, much more than you would expect from a chaos team. The rats were the most shocked to find themselves in a scoring race with a chaos team, and dazzled by Society’s flashy passing plays they were unable… wait passing plays? Chaos? What the hell is going on here!? Has Big Society hired some kind of blind, deaf and dumb Wizard who specialises in balls, always hitting the bumpers and always playing clean?

 

Vixens vs Darkfleet

Business as usual for the Vixens. That’s really all I need to say. Darkfleet used this opportunity to get themselves some points, with one of their players securing his 3rd kill in row, leading to the commission creating a brand new award in his honour: “The Soulshredder Award” given to any player who gets 3 kills over 3 games.

 

Pallies vs Fairies

The Fairies continue to emulate Damage Inc, although not perfectly unfortunately, as sometimes the Fairies have been known to score. The Pallies also proved themselves pretty competent in that area managing to hold the Fairies to a 2-2 draw that I think the Fairies will be glad to have got away with.

 

Towers vs Mashers

These two teams have a lot of similarities to each other, and under those circumstances it was always going to go to the team who managed to blink last (well, okay that’s a bad analogy zombies don’t blink, but you get what I mean).
The Towers got lucky with an early blitz which allowed them to secure a strong position for the rest of the game. The Mashers tried their hardest, but a second and third touchdown by the Towers in the second half secured them the win.

 

Oxmoor Savages vs The Hut.

A complete reverse of what happened to fellow Chaos Dwarf team the Burners, Oxmoor attempted to hit the Hut, and YOU DON’T HIT THE HUT. THE HUT HITS YOU!

These psychotic death dwarves peeled the poor savages out of their armour and pounded them into paste. It was truly terrifying to watch as player after player was sent to the dugout on a stretcher. I mean when it happened to the Myckies it was impressive (and funny!), but not unthinkable, Elves aren’t big on wearing proper armour, but these guys were Chaos, only Orcs are better armoured and the Hut was making them look like they were wearing the armour of Halflings.
Some people say you can’t win games of Bloodbowl on casualties alone. These people have been killed. By the Hut.

 

Cup round 1

Burners vs Pallies

The last game of the first round of the Cup, the Pallies a good if new team faced off against an old team doing badly: The Blackburners with their current run of form you would give good odds to the Pallies, but out of nowhere the Blackburners suddenly woke up. Scoring not just their first touchdown, but their first THREE touchdowns of the season so far, the Blackburners were able to take advantage of the Paladins comparative lack of experience to secure the goals they needed to win.

Even then it easily could have gone the Pallies way. At the end of the first half they were 1-0 up, with the Blackburners never having recovered from behind before this season, all the Pallies had to do was close the door. However a crucial lack of attention from a mercenary Ogre enabled the ball to get handed off to a Bull Centaur who pounded his way over the Pallies thrower and into history as the first Blackburners Bull Centaur to ever score a TD.

Despite some outrageous attempts at Martial Arts from Mr Fumbles, who tried to leap into a cage and disrupt a ball carrier, the Pallies were able to score a second time.

Now the pressure was really on the Burners, would they be able to equalise a second time? The Pallies took their eyes off Mr Fumbles for a second and he leapt over the lines and after the Pallies tripped over their feet trying to catch him was able to secure the 10th Touchdown of his career.

With the scores drawn, the game went into extra time, where upon blinding sunshine enveloped the stadium, which would be sure to hamper any passing plays either team would have wanted to make. It also seemed to badly hamper Buggerits attempts to pick up the ball, the slippery thing bounced out of his hand four times, and it looked like the Burners luck had returned to form, but with Pallie players bearing down on him, Buggerit was finally able to grab the ball, hand it over to Mr Fumbles who drove the ball up the pitch. Although he was downed within yards of the scoreline, a fellow hobgoblin was able to grab the ball and hand it over another Bull Centaur who was able to storm through the defensive line to win the game.
A cracker of a close game we can all agree, although now the Burners have to face Oxmoor in the next round and I think we can all guess how THAT will go.

Obituaries for Week 3

  • Thorhilder (Linesman for Valhallen Vixen\’s): Kaine Soulshredder claimed another kill and earned himself the \\\”Soulshredder Award\\\” for three consecutive kills in three matches. Thorhilder was a founding member of the Vixens and this dear old veteran lady will be missed by them.
  • Nene (Chaos Warrior for Oxmoor Savages): Killed by a Chaos Dwarf. Clearly they worshipped the wrong god…
  • Desborough (Beastman for Oxmoor Savages): Showed promise but his career came to a close by a Chaos Dwarf.

HDWSBBL takes the prizes at NAF Championships 2014

Good Morning Blood Bowl Coaches!

 

Fantastic news from the NAF Championships 2014 (or should it be 2514?)!  HDWSBBL came, saw and conquered!

 

Gitz and Shigglez coached by Sandwich went 2 wins 2 draws and 2 losses to WIN THE STUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP!

Facing off against some of the biggest names in Blood Bowl including new president Beppe and Chance from Three Die Block (who he pitch cleared!) Sandwich gained the coverted “Stunty Lord” cloak in round 3 and 4 only to lose it to NazGob in round 5.  With the tension building on the last game of the championship Sandwich pulled a fantastic draw to steal  (well they are goblins after all) the cloak and the trophy from the NazGob’s Halflings hands and bring it back to the HDWSBBL.

Surely this means we will see the Gitz back in the league soon after their Old World tour.

 

All hail the Lord of the Stunties and the newly self-styled “Stunty World Champion” Sandwich.
