Causing Havoc in the old world since 2506

Nahuontl Natterjacks

It was the year 2516, and the former Lustria Croakers player Axolotalan ‘The Darting Frog’ was feeling a restlessness sink in. After the collapse of the NAF he had taken over coaching a team calling themselves the Spacehoppers, bringing them up to speed with the current Old World rules of Blood Bowl (as you can imagine it takes quite some time for anything from the modern world to reach you in the deepest darkest jungle). Things were going well for the Spacehoppers until an ill fated (or as it would turn out, totally underhanded!) match against a team named the Slaaneshi Big Society. After a particularly violent kicking on the Society’s part, the Spacehopper’s players started exhibiting large weeping sores and buboes that were swimming with parasites. Caused by the vile Tilean Nurgle sorceress Lucilia Bufonivora, she had been hired by the Society’s coach to infect a nasty Toadfly infestation on the Spacehoppers prior to the game. Fortunately for Axolotalan he was able to recover due to having gained the ability to regenerate from being a member of the winning Slann team of the 2501 Chaos Cup. His team, however, were not so fortunate…

So here he was, on the secluded subtropical island of Newt Xealand, sitting in his lil’ pad under the shade of a giant Tiki fern with the once pleasing but now becoming monotonous sounds of surf and cicadas. It was a quiet relief when his pygmy butler Moa-Joe handed him a letter which contained a contract to coach a team in the renowned HDWSBBL. According to the letter of invitation, the HDWSBBL ruling committee was on a recruiting drive for some fresh teams to start off their new eleventh season. In their search for these new teams and coaches, the committee had heard rumours about where The Darting Frog had retired to and decided to try and entice him out of Blood Bowl hibernation. With a new found enthusiasm and a vision, Axolotalan caught the first Terradon back to the mainland. “What better team to coach than the one that started my career?!” he thought to himself…

On reaching Nahuontl, Axolotalan learnt that the city’s team had fallen bankrupt after the NAF’s collapse and had subsequently disbanded. “Suffering Skinks!” Hmm…he needed a new plan. Sending a series of shrill calls out through the jungle he could only hope some of the younger, leaner and athletic generations of his race were in the area who would not only hear his call but be jumping at the bit to play Blood Bowl for the city. The turn out was slow at first but eventually the trickle turned into a deluge and Axolotalan was able to put together a series of try-outs. After a summer of trials, cuts and call backs, a group of suitable candidates emerged and began spawning into a well mucused team. Using bags of ‘borrowed’ gold from the Mage-Priest stores (he fully intends to replace said bags even though the elders don’t value gold in the same way the rest of the Old World does) to pay the HDWSBBL joining fees and to purchase 16 new uniforms from the finest sporting goods emporium in Marienburg, The Darting Frog found himself with a relatively inexperienced but well equipped team.

What has really drawn in the fans (which also sets them apart from other Slann teams) is a Newt Xealand pygmy tradition Axolotalan has incorporated into his team’s pre-game routine. Called The Dance of the Three Snakes, or Kappa Haka, it is carried out by their cheerleaders to arouse the players, er…intensity… before they perform their own fearsome haka displaying bulging eyes (how can you tell if a frog’s eyes are more bulging than normal?!) protruding salivating tongues (which has created rumours of toad licking performance enhancing drug use) and disturbing grunts and groans! Since Nahuontl’s team and field needed revivifying, so too was a new team name chosen. Now the newly named Natterjacks look to pick up where the old team were forced to leave, or should that be leap, off!

And leap off they did. After lifting silverware in their rookie season and gold (admittedly The Shield) in their second, the Natterjacks (along with head coach Axolotalan) have returned once again to the HDWSBBL with the goal of solidifying themselves as the league’s most successful and infamous Slann team of all time. Taking the words of the revered Star Lord S’bokvulkan as their own, they look to “Leap long and prosper” as like never before. With their 2518 return however, comes a cause for concern. For whatever reason, the Chaos gods have always taken an interest in Axolotalan’s Blood Bowl career and now rumours circle the Natterjacks like flies around a Pestigor that celebrity darling and Star Player Lord Borak has given the team his own personal seal of approval. If these whispers around the locker room are to be true, then an experienced Slann team like the Natterjacks with the blessings of such a charismatic lord of the Ruinous Powers doesn’t bode well for their opponents. But as Basco and Loktar pointed out, if it all goes wrong for the Natterjacks then being reverted to spawn will be nothing new to them!

HDWSBBL - Did You Know

Rat Eater Award

The Rat-Eater Award was created after Borat Rateater of the Highland Nut Crushers sucessfully got a TouchDown, Completion, Casulty and Interception all in one season.
In his houner the award was named after him. Later stat re-calcultaions have proved that Nenvik Eagle of the Rangers also completed a Rat-Eater in the same season but due to him already being “honoured” with the Eagle Award (for most spectacular death), the award name stands as the Rat-Eater.
