  The new book is out and with it came only a few surprises at this point.  The Farmers, and the new Union pair.  For the most part, the other releases have been out, and tested, and opinions are already out there.  I'm a long ways from being qualified to tell you how good they are, and aren't.  I can give you some impressions if you haven't seen t...
At the time of writing, there are over 210 people attending the NAF Championship, and Hawca has asked me to write a few details to make the weekend run like the well-oiled machine that it is! Registration starts at 8:30 in the main hall.  You will meet the guys at the laptop and then be able to renew your NAF membership with Lycos.  The...
Based on the Naggaroth Nightmares from 3rd edition, these models are quite iconic I’d say. They bring the total painted figure up to 26 for the year, which is quite good but also means I’d have to step it up a bit to reach the three-digit-goal. The team is devotees of the lesser Chaos God Malal, thats why they have b/w skulls. The mascot is a Citad...
This April a dream came true: the first ever NAF tournament in Latin America. Torneo de Otoño 2017 was hosted by LUBBA, the Uruguayan Blood Bowl League, in the beautiful city of Montevideo. It was a glorious day; the sun was not high in the sky yet, when Odisea Store, the chosen arena for this event, opened its doors. Some coaches where already the...
One of the most common questions (and to be honest, complaints) about the new box set concerns the lack of positionals to make a good team. So, what do we have? Dwarfs: The GW set comes with the 12 dwarfs you need for a basic team.  Job done.  The Deathroller is nice to have, but a competitive team would not usually have one, as it’s so much Team V...
By Craig, on April 18th, 2017 Because of the vague mysteries of scheduled posting , I appear to have done a lot of progress on this team in a short span of days. Truthfully, I did that work a week ago and then spent a week on the campaign app, and then a day ago got upstairs to take some photos. › Super happy wi...

Did I mention magnets? I’ve never magnetised anything but bases before, and I think I’ve thrown myself into the deep end.  At first I was drilling a recess into the arm, and into the socket. I found it easier to drill the size of both magnets into the socket, and have the magnet external on the arm. Then skin on these was easy, I don’t know why I f...
Dhingo Initiative Conference LXVIII Game 3: DDAmAge112's Skaven "Office Rats" A very different prospect from the rats of last round. The Office Rats also have some very well developed players, but had been beaten up recently and have a lot of rookies too. DDAmAge plays a much looser game than Tomay, this occassionally comes off and I've specced som...
Last in our little series (and six months after the last instalment, ahem), we’re finally getting onto those skills that help you punch people. Repeatedly. Pro What a pro! What a champ! Look at him go!  Pro is like a little reroll your player can carry around in their pocket, ready to use as and when they need to. Basically, if they make a roll, th...
By Craig, on April 14th, 2017 This was a super productive night! I made dinner (plus lunches for a few days), watched a movie with my wife, did some work on my top-secret coding project and got a bunch of shading done on these guys! Once again I tried one of the Secret Weapon washes, and once again I was disappo...
Forgeworld has just listed a pretty sensational conversion kit for the Bright Crusaders human team on their website, retailing at £32, including a full 12 plastic human players. Notably that works out about NZ $57,  so unless they geoblock the release, this could represent a very pleasantly surprising saving on the NZ $65  retail human box team cur...
It was that time of the year again and I was looking forward to this year even more because not only was brocCooLi joining me again, but also Duckwing and inforthepain. We had a great weekend and even if I had lost all my games, I would have been happy. It wasn't the case though as I played six very enjoyable games of blood bowl during the weekend....
Dhingo Initiative Conference LXVIII Game 2: Tomay's Skaven "Compare the Meerkat"  Two St3 gutter runners, and a pair of nasty blitzers. This was always going to be a tough one. The usual plan with scissors on paper is to chop them up. It doesn't always work, but there was a fair amount of attrition in the first half. Despite this I found it very ha...
I went to my friend brocCooLis tournament back in March. I didn't take any notes so this will be a short report, but it was a good tournament. Roster For this tournament each team got 1170k to play around with. I decided to play pro elves, since I would be able to use my elves (and be forced to paint more of them) and because the rules weren't that...
