Game Recap: Blood Bowl Tournament
Dark Elves welcome Kandi's Khorne
On the Home Pitch of Scyrah's Shredders, the Dark Elves welcomed Kandi's Khorne to the Sweltering Heat of Week 1 Blood Bowl. The Shredders kicked things off with a Blitz, and Dark Elf Blitzer Aramil scored the first Casualty!
The Elves forced a turnover, and after a fumbled pass went the right direction, the Shredders began their 3-0 TD rush. In Spite of early ball trouble, the Shredder"s experienced runner Ivellios managed 3 passing completions.
Returning Witch Elf, Lilith managed a TD, but she and Sariel need to stop solo die blocking, as it always comes up player down. This was all about the Blitzers tho, as between the 4 of them, they put 3 in the casualty box, and scored 2 Touchdowns.
MVP and Veteran Blitzer Varis took left one Khorne lineman shucked and down with a niggling injury he wont soon forget. The Shredders are back this season, and are starting it off with a bloodbath, scoring 6 league points!
Amazon prime vs. O.A.F.
I know what you are think dash vs bash. Traditional match up. However the amazons were 490,000 tv behind O.A.F. Enter The Mighty Zug and Glotl Stop. All of a sudden the Amazons have the strength advantage. Amazons won the kick off and got to punch first, I mean receive. It was an all out brawl and and the amazons forgot the bowl part of blood bowl.
The orks sacked the ball carrier and #12 for O.A.F. Picked up the ball and scored a touchdown on the top of turn 6. With little hope of scoring the amazons set up for a quick round of punching before the half was over. Kick of time, and the Amazons decided the best way to negate on the ball was to simply kick it to the thrower with the skill.
A lot of bashing latter(To much bashing honestly) the amazons squeeze the ball loose. Then proceed to turn over for a while then on turn 8 pick up the ball, go for it twice, hand off the ball, then proceed to go for it one last time for the td. Isn’t it against the rules for someone to get a TD on a go for it. Oh well. Tie game 1-1 1 league point each.
Lizardmen and Tomb Kings
Hello again boys and ghouls and welcome to another edition of Wednseday Night Warfare! The returning Undead Champions Korpse-a Kai faced off against the mighty Shockers in a league match that could have gone either way!
The Amazons showed up a little worse for wear, as it looked like they had been attacked before the match had even started! An investigation is in process as we speak led by our very own "Blind" Barry Ghostic! We will report if he actually is able to learn anything more!
The Undead received the kick in the 1st half and judging by their dominance of the line of slaughter seemed to be cruising on their way to a victory. Bones Jackson scored his 2nd touchdown of the season, and not to be outdone Maxx Casualty scored his second massacre sending yet another player to the injury box!
But the second half would show the resolve of these gutsy Amazon warriors! Down by a player they managed to slip through the grasp of countless zombies and scored a touchdown mid way through the second half! The Undead received the ball and looked to be comfortably moving up the pitch, until one of the massive defensive blockers slipped out of the hands of a zombie and sacked the ball carrier in what was easily the play of the game!
These Undead don't give in so easily, but when your hands are soaked in blood it can be hard to hold on to that ball as The Red Smile couldn't get possession even though he had a clear lane to the end zone!
The game ended in what we can only imagine as a disappointment for both teams in a 1-1 draw.
Coach Scary Silver : "I felt like we had them in the palm of our hands, especially after the hit....I mean tragic, unfortunate accident our opponents suffered before the game."
Maxx Casualty : "Well you know we didn't get the win. I'm sure we will regroup and come back stronger. We are a good team and we are just gonna have to break one leg at a time."
The Steamrollers vs The Ulfbirgers
We have an exciting matchup for you today Blood Bowl fans. It’s the Dwarves vs Norse showdown you’ve been waiting for!
Halftime had the score at 2-0, the Norse were throwing dwarves all over the pitch. The real shocker came when the Deathroller that the dwarves grabbed with inducements was flat out murdered on the pitch! It was an incredibly bloody display that had the fans salivating in the stands! The Norse wouldn’t be denied another league point by finishing three casualties; though we’ve heard from the apothecary that two of the dwarves will recover… they may be prone to hurting more than just their ego in future matches. That’s not to say that the dwarves could let the Norse have their way, also throwing three bodies into the casualty box (the dwarves were almost able to kill the beer boars and have a great after game beer and bacon bash, but it wasn’t meant to be). The final score had the Norse beat the Dwarves 3-1! The Norse pull away 5 league points and the Dwarves gained 1.
Here are some other results from the week.
Sarus Smashers vs Ice Breaker Bandits winner with 5 league points, saurus Smashers. Ice Breakers caused 1 causalty.
The Dastardly Drunkards and the Sepulchra Stalkers faced off. The match was a slaughter each side scoring at least 3 casualties. The final score was DD 3-0 SS. Drunkards securing 6 league points and the Stalkers gaining 1. The Drunkards Yeti really rained down the hurt with his ferocius claws putting the Tomb Kings Liche-Priest hard at work reconstructing a Tomb Guardian and Brutalizing a Blitzer beyond repair. To say the least the Dastardly Drunkards sure know how to beat a dead horse!
A friendly match was held in the Chaos Conference between the Lizardmen and Tomb Kings. The final result being a 2-1 win for the Tomb Kings. The fans were out in droves to support their teams netting both sides a hefty sum of gold for their treasuries. One Lizardmen player had an astounding performance during the 2nd half, managing to 2die uphill block the Tomb Kings ball carrier and scurry away towards the end zone! On the Tomb Kings side. Blitzer Araphos caused 3 casualties during this “friendly match”. The Tomb Kings Necrotect coach has this to say “Ever since his performance during our first match his attitude completetly changed.” Its seems like this Lone blitzer has been training above his weight class, from the looks of it he may start out punching his Tomb Guardian teammates soon.
Check in with us later this week for some more gaming shenanigans!
