So I have a Blood Bowl tournament coming up this weekend. One of my buddies is running it and he had to cap it and 60 people because the venue couldn't hold anymore. This is his second year running and we are both AMAZED he got 60 people (more actually, there is a wait list). We live in Va. and have people coming from as far as the Virgin islands. Pretty crazy. I have been working on my team for the event lately. Meet the Tzeentch Zappers led by Lord Borak. Chaos isn't the best blood bowl team... but they are a fun one!



I also picked up some of the new Warcry stuff yesterday. The Ogre cards really caught my eye and I had some Ogre models laying around the house so I started last night working on my warband. I normally don't do a lot of WIP shots here but that's exactly what these are. Not bad for a night / morning's work IMO. A couple small conversions, head swaps etc.







Not the greatest pics. I assure you I will take better ones once they are finished. There is a GW about 80 minutes from me that is having a warcry tournament in a few weeks. I may try to get these painted up and take them down there. I cant imagine Warcry being the best tourney game, but an excuse to play it all day sounds ok to me.

Best of luck with the tournament, the Chaos team looks great.

I too picked up the Ogre and OBR Warcry cards this weekend, a couple of sets of Feast of Bones I have for them will be great fodder for the war bands.

May I add that it is always fun popping into this thread just to see what you have been up to. Great stuff.

Great looking BB team. Depending on how the tournament is set up you play to win or play to cause casualties (which sometimes helps the first option to happen ).

So I am DMing my first game with our normal DM as a player and a couple of newer players as well. One of the new players doesn't even have any miniatures so he sent me his character sheet and I grabbed this model for him I had painted a month or two back. He is a dwarven fighter.





I also made a little progress on my Ogre Warcry Warband tonight. I am trying to have them painted for a tournament in appx. 2 weeks time. Again, I know I don't normally post a lot of WIPs but these are very much that.

The whole warband (got a few options).







The guy with the gun and sweet mask is going to be my leader. I have a few more guys but I want to get these done and then add more options as time allows. Anyways, that's all for now! Wish me luck at the BB tournament Saturday!!!

So I played in the Blood Bowl Tourney this weekend. 56 people showed and I won 2 games and tied 1 which I was pretty darn happy with, especially with Chaos. Tie Breakers were not especially kind and I came in 10th but still pretty pleased. Took pictures of each of my games but for some reason the 3rd games pic didn't save so you will get to see the first two.

First game was a gentlemen who drove in from Indiana (we were in VA). He was playing Khorne. We ended up tying 1-1.



My second opponent drove most of the way across Va. He played Bretonnians. I took 2 of his blitzers out early in the game and he could never really recover. He only had 4 men on the pitch at the end of the first half but I could never get the ball off of him. I got the ball in the 2nd half, slowly ground down his team and scored on turn 15 to lock in the victory.



My third opponent came up from around Raleigh NC and he played Vampires. This was the best game I played all day and I eeked out a 2-1 win on the last turn of the game. Pics didn't save for some reason on this one so you will just have to take my word for it.

On a slightly different note I am hosting my own BB tournament at my FLGS in May. It will be called the Cave Squig Cup. If you can make the drive to Va. PM me and I will send you details. Here are some pictures of some of the custom swag I have gotten made for it. More still incoming.

Custom Turn Markers



And custom dice



I have also made some slight progress on my Ogre warband so will post pics of that shortly.

Congrats on the games.

Cave squig cup battle caps and dice with the symbol on the 6 (how they should be).

Where did you get the dice made if I might ask.

I got them from a company in the UK called Dice International Ltd. Less than a dollar a dice shipped and took them a little over 3 weeks from when I paid for them to arrive at my door. Easy to work with, cant say enough good things really.

Speaking of Blood Bowl. I have been really enjoying messing with Ogres lately so I also started work on an Ogre team for Blood Bowl. They are one of the worst teams in game but I figured they would be good for intro games or against newer players.

Here is what I have done so far. 4 Ogres and 4 snotlings. I had painted the snotlings awhile back and used a different color for the base. I am in the process of fixing that so they all match but that explains the different color bases.







Gotta finish 2 more Ogres and probably 6 more snotlings. I plan on taking these guys to a tournament at the end of March so I have plenty of time. Will post pics of Warcry Ogre progress later tonight.

Ogres are looking good. May I inquire, what colors you used for the skin?

Thanks guys!

@CB - Snotlings are the only players in BB that are strength 1. An average human is strength 3 and an Ogre is strength 5, so there is quite the disparity there.

@Viterby The Dark Color skin is P3's battlefield brown. The Caucasian skins are Bugmans Glow, Kislev Flesh and Cadian Flesh. Nothing Fancy. Just base, wash, and a little clean up with the base color.

Ive got a couple more guys done for my Warcry warband, including my first snotling. Also, I know they are technically called Gnoblars now, but Im always gonna call them snotlings. Anyways, here goes.





Now, I just have to finish the leader and 2 more snotlings and I have a legal force. Going to paint a few more just to have some options. I got a box of the two handed weapon Ogres in yesterday so they will be built and added soon. This has been a super fun little project and Ive really enjoyed messing with mostly larger models. Probably going to spend another 2 weeks or so getting the Warcry group ready and the BB team done. Then who knows whats next!

So first thing, a few reinforcements for my Ogres. Got an Ironguts kit and made a couple plus some snotlings. Will paint soon.



So earlier on this page I talked about DMing my first game ever. Well that was today. We ran two small dungeons. I only took a couple pictures but a good time was had by all.









And that's about it for today. Later this week should be more Ogres!

So a few of you guys have been talking about Gaslands on your blogs. I have the original book but never did much with it. I was out and about this weekend and saw some matchbox cars so looked through them and picked up a few. The Burger car is my favorite of the 2 but I bet I can do some cool stuff with the flat bed.
