False start and a face plant
As I have mentioned, GW has a Blood Bowl League going on. So far, my LGS can't get the info to put in games, but I am still playing. When I get some games posted, I will tag my league site on here. Anyway, the Saturday before last I started a game versus Paul's Orc Island Raiders. We only managed to get in two turns before I had to run grab my kids. When I returned, one of them threw up, so that was that game. We did meet up on Thursday for a game, and I will get into that after the break. I also ran a X-Wing tournament last Saturday. Well, "ran" is probably the wrong word. It was more of get off work early, race over, set up tables, wait for a while, clean up tables, go home. Yep, nobody showed. It was super exciting.
Well, anyway, onto the game that was exciting.
When I came in on Thursday, Paul and I discussed reseting the Saturday game, as we had pictures, or just starting a new one. As the other game was two turns, no scores, no casualties, we just went with a restart. Paul is running the starter set, minus a Black Orc who was out with a hip injury from our first game. Muahaha. I am running 2 Blitzers, 2 Throwers, 2 Runners and 5 Linemen on my Norse team. No injuries, again, Muahaha. I finally managed to win a kick off flip, and chose to receive. Paul kicked off, planning to put it back on my left side. It of course went into the crowd allowing me to hand the ball to whoever.
Things went well early, I managed to punch a hole in the left side and send a runner up. I took the ball and rushed it up, choosing to Go For It, and my runner fell on his ass. There is a theme here, wait for it. This led to a scuffle around the ball, but I was able to come up with it, and started to run the wrong way.Luckily, Paul is a good guy and told me I was screwing the pooch, so I turned around and went for a touchdown.
I am currently 2-0-1 for the league, with four casualties dealt and two points scored. Feeling good. Still 20k short of a Werewolf, but I found the models for my coach, cheerleader, and she-werewolf. The weather has been nice, so hopefully I can get some paint on them. I didn't realize my cheerleader is showing a tit, so I have to decide what to do there. I may leave it, but my kids may see and then I have to explain. Hmmmm....
Well, anyway, catchya next time.
