I'd say the update is somewhat overdue, except that we only just got the final Farmer card spoiled this last weekend.  As quickly as Steamforged modifies the game, or rather, as sporadic as the updates are, a true figure analysis is going to always be behind.  In fact, in compiling the Farmers and Blacksmiths (Coming soon), I didn't even bother t...
Painting the Lineman and looking at the rest of the team I decided to make a minor change in terms of team player aesthetics. The first lineman model I had done had an open helmet, so you could see the orc's face. One of the four blitzers was a similar model to the line men. The other 3 all had full helmets and a bit more armour on. I want all the ...
This weekend I went to one of my favourite Blood Bowl tournaments - the Cambridge Double Trouble.  It's a two-day tournament where you play in a two-man team - so I teamed up with my mate Andrew again.  Usually I try to pick a team I haven't used before so I can paint up a team and use them - but the Cam Dub has an unusual skill selection pack wher...
Lots of little bits going on today, for TOs mostly to be aware of, so a quick blog post to make it easy to share: It’s not currently possibly to manually update email.  The field that allowed this before didn’t actually do anything, it turns out, so this is a new process needed.  Should be available soon, and can’t imagine it’s incredib...
Present: Mike, Paul, Torsten, Nate, Gavin Apologies: Manuel Website update Significant improvements continue to be made to the database, and there are more imminent. The online registration is now fixed, having been broken for a while, and the coach page now contains more information. We discussed changing the names of the races so that they were c...
I've had the last remnants of my Norse Blood Bowl team needing some attention since 2014.  I had painted Zara the Slayer and Helmut Wulf but not based them - and I put some basecoats down on Wilhelm Chaney and Icepelt Hammerblow and then put them aside when I needed to concentrate on a different project.  After painting my Underworld team recently,...
OK, so this is quite an emotional moment for me.  Not up there with my wedding, or the birth of my children, but in terms of Blood Bowl this is alongside reffing at the World Cup or winning my first tournament (both good things).  This is why I am indulging myself by writing a personal post on the NAF site (something I’ve mostly avoided). About 5 y...
FoodBowl 2017 ! This is a great event for a great cause! 4 player Blood Bowl, 1,250 gold teams and it brings together the two disparate groups of Blood Bowl players in the Vancouver area, so we get to meet some new people. ‚ Obviously, I brought Skaven which I thought were a good top pick — they have some great speed (since the current event rules ...
  Guildball's a weird game when it comes to the genre it fits in.  Technically, it's a tabletop miniatures game.  Most of the players (as of right now, but the demographic is changing) come from a tabletop wargaming background like Warmachine or 40k so it kind of fits into that category at the moment.  It's certainly the experience that the high-le...
By Craig, on November 5th, 2017 This model is so fucking rad. Some of the FW Blood Bowl models are hit or miss , so I’m super stoked to be able to support their continued creation of Blood Bowl content by buying Glart, my little Fatty McRatty! Since I received him on the Friday before the tournament, I basically...
It got weird. I’m playing in FoodBowl this weekend. It was a great event last year, with some great custom made boards and some fun rules for charity. This year the organizer got rid of the “only 2 Stars” rules, so the field was open for craziness. You’ve already seen my Fezglitch and my Kreek . I ordered Glart  at the end of September, knowing he’...
  I broke down and bought them.  I fell for the pricepoint trap that Steamforged set and I picked them up.  Besides, I already had Tater.  Excuses.  Let's look at these guys.   Oh hey, the PR image with the professionally painted models.   So pretty, right?  Look, the contents of the box are fantastic.  I can't spin this any other way.  The box com...
With my test paint models done I had a better idea of the look of the team I was aiming for and what I need to do and improve on to get it just right. I decided that rather then continually practice on test models I would paint the first on team model. This way I was committed to the project of painting the team and was forcing myself to concentrat...
My friend Andrew and I travelled down to Folkestone yesterday to take part in the Chaos Cards Cup - the first Blood Bowl tournament run at a very nice gaming store.  The one day, three game, tournament was being run by my mate Pete Gridley who used to run the Twisted Cup.  The rules allowed for 1200TV team costs and Underworld were allowed eight sk...

By Craig, on October 17th, 2017 Here’s a nice side-by-side to show you how my interpretation of Wappel’s shaded basecoat goes: The top photo is much to light, on purpose. It’s the same recipe as for this other Skaveny article I did a while back. Skin is GW Zamesi Desert, mixed and highlighted up with GW Dheneb S...
