Crumb-bowl – the King of British one-day tournaments – has been reincarnated as SAWBBowl, standing for Swindon and Wiltshire (Blood?) Bowl, to mirror the new name for the local league ( SAWBBL ).  56 coaches signed up for the new venue, with lots still on the waiting list. Why? A combination of the friendly host (Glowworm), the excellent lunch (Joh...
I've been trying out using Masons with some of the guys from my club by borrowing their Kick Off! set minis.  The plastics in those sets are really nice and quite a lot larger in scale than the metal minis that I've had sitting in my hobby to-do pile.  I'm still not quite sure I get how they work tactically yet as I'm so used to playing my Butchers...
I have some almost finished. Here’s an in progress of my Minotaur. He needs a little more work, but he’s mostly done.  I have three Beastmen in a similar state.  Now to get on with the Other 10..  I’ve just started an NVQ, and I’ve been a little sick. It makes me feel really lazy and I feel guilty for not prioritising my NVQ. But hey ho. I’m on hol...
Last time a started to put together the Blitzers. Each Blitzer would have a barrel on their back carrying a Goblin. The first goblin I made was pointing a blunderbuss, shooting a ball. I wanted one of the goblins to be shooting a catapult. Looking at the Gretchin kit there was one that had two arms up separately. After removing the sword and the pi...
For one week only, Games Workshop will be casting and selling a handful of items from the 3rd edition range. While not exactly the wallet-pounding full range that some expected, this is an interesting move by GW.  Does it indicate that these teams shouldn't expect new miniature sets in the near future?  That would be unexpected, given the rumours t...
By Craig, on April 5th, 2017 I finally made enough in-game money to buy my rat ogre!!!! This is a big deal. I’ve had about 16 games this season, and I’ve been saving up to buy him since the first one. I bought one a large number of games ago, but he died 3 turns into his career. Like dead, apothecary, re-roll to...
Blitzers For the four blitzers of the team I had already formed an idea of what I wanted them to look like. I used the Orruk Ardboyz kit as the main basis of the models. I also had a 40K gretchin box and 40k orc stormboyz. Looking at the models on the various sprues a picture started forming in my head. One of the great things about the Ardboyz is ...
At the first UK Team Challenge in York, I met some of the guys from the Derby Blood Bowl league - one of whom was Johnny Bull (aka J-Bone).  A while back he decided to run a Kickstarter for a Slann team but he wanted to do it properly.  He paid for the designs and sculpting to be done by Pedro Ramos and then started the crowdfunding.  His plan was ...

It was the first tournament of the year and as usual for me, it wasn't a good one. I played wood elves as I wanted to have a shot at the best painted trophy. Roster Treeman (Guard) 2x Wardancers (Strip Ball, Tackle) 3x Catchers Thrower (Leader) 4x Linemen (2x Wrestle) 2x Rerolls Game 1 vs Skaven FAME +1 Sweltering Heat As the elves kicked the ball ...
By Craig, on March 18th, 2017 I committed to myself and my club that I would paint at least one model before I played again. I scheduled a game for Wednesday. Then ran out of time to paint a model. Mid-Wednesday, my game got cancelled because of various reasons, and I was unable to find a new one. Some might say...
The Gardeners of Degalaque C are known for their swift and proper execution on plays on the pitch.That’s why they are called Gardeners, they are keeping the competition short, like the grass in a garden. Amongst the elves in the vast Degalaque forest the title Gardener is a ceremonial upholder of the order, carrying out the verdict of the Elder Cou...
“Hey Blood Bowl friends! Last weekend I`ve been at the Fulginium Bowl…” ” I…I…I…..?  It`s WE since the beginning of our life with two heads……I told you every time!” ” Ups, sorry you`re right, so WE have been at the Fulginium Bowl near Forli in Italy….and wow….it´s one of the  best Blood Bowl tournaments we`ve ever played! The yournament is famous i...
My first tournament with Vampires is over and after six games, I'm probably going to say that I enjoyed them for the most part.  They are a challenging team and, as was proved by the tournament winner who also used them, in the right hands they can be unstoppable.  I'm not sure my hands are the right hands though - I would certainly need more pract...
  Eventually, someone will tell you that you need one, or they have one, or whatever.  Eventually, it will come up, and it's going to click that those models you've seen painted with these beautiful smooth blends aren't done by hand.  Usually.  They're done with an airbrush.  Jolly Roger Studios is a great example of what can be done with an airbru...
From the building of Black Orc Blocker #1 I learnt a number of things. I need a stronger visual image in my head on how I want the model to look. For this model I want the blocker to have his arms out to the sides forming a mean green barrier between him and his end zone. A pose that says "this is the line, this far no further" ( Orc blockers like ...
