The Warhammer Community posted up today the latest Star Play to run ok well stomp onto the pitch. It is an age old fan favorite 

Frank ‘n’ Stein

Frank appeared in the very first Star Player expansion book for BloodBowl back in the 80s check him out below

I had always loved this figure and really wish was still part of my collection. Might have to go trawling through Ebay.

This is the latest incarnation from GW (Forge World)

A much larger player to befit the growth in the figures in the game. The figure fits in very well with the new Wolfenburg Cryptstealers. He looks like he packs a mean punch with that oversized left hand.

With Brutal Block once a game Frank is sure to be putting more bodies for the Cryptstealers to put back in their team.

Cannot wait for this to be up for pre-order.

Sisters Saturdays: The Warhammer Fest Reveal

Tuesday Warhammer Fest revel saw the full release for the Adepta Sororitas that will be released soon so soon I hope.

Now most of these models we have seen before in previous reveals but there are 3 new models yet to have been seen and the first is a stunner

Morvenn Vahl is the now new supreme commander for the SoB and revered by the Custodes given a wicked looking blade. This model is stunning some great pose with the new armour. I still do have the question where are her feet?

Next up is

Dogmata she is your judge jury and executioner and she clearly has feet to do her stomping.

Can I get a hell yeah for the banner its big and imposing and the Sister with a book. Gonna be a nice center piece for an army. 

We only got organs and heavy flamers in the SoB we need a tank, well GW heard and have brought you the Castigator. GRRRRR the Castigator so good had to say it twice.

Based on the ol faithfull Rhino Chassis it is blinged up with religous icons and choice of Battle Cannon or Auto-Cannons. Plenty of firepower to lay down on the heretics.

The last 3 reveals is the Palatine for those of us that missed buying it the army box, the no knees no feet Paragon warsuits and the Celestian Sacresants

So a pretty big release for us SoB fans.

Looks like another guilt release to get my current SoB painted. More to follow next Saturday on my SoB army.

Touchdown Thursdays: Building a Black Orc Team


With the recent release of the Black Orc team box from Games Workshop, I have guilted myself into completing my first team for season 2.

With only 3 choices open to coaches you may be forgiven to think that selecting your team is easy. However there is one questions that has been making me deliberate my team selection.


With 1,000,000 gold coins to spend on your team 115,000 of it is a lot to burn in 1 player. 

My list with a Troll is as follows:

5 Black Orcs
1 Trained Troll
5 Goblin Bruiser Linemen
2 Re-Rolls

Coming in 1,000,000 Gold Coins

With a Troll in the centre of the pitch wether you are on offensive or the defensive certainly adds an intimidation factor of 10 and he is going to put out his fair share of tackles. However it is the lack of a reserve and the chance that the Troll might just stand there has made me go with the following options.

 6 Black Orcs
6 Goblin Bruiser Linemen
3 Re-Rolls
1 Additional Dedicated Fan.

Total of 1,000,000 Gold Coins

Now this team is all about the Black Orcs hitting and punching holes in the oppostions line allowing space for the nippy Goblins to try and grab the glory of a Touchdown!

In terms of development of the team I generally really do not plan to far in the future due to my appalling dice rolls and loss of  players.

For colour scheme  I have tagged the original GW colour scheme, I always wondered why GW went with Black and Yellow rather than the Black and Silver of the Oakland Raiders where the team was obviously taken from.

I am going to some hints from the original team colour but head more to the Black and Silver of the team that I have followed for many a year. However this might make them look similar to the Thunder Valley Greenskins so gonna have to work hard on making my team look unique.

Tune in upcoming weeks on the progress of the team.

Also hoping in this weeks Warhammer Fest we get some cool BloodBowl News

Touchdown Thursdays: Deathzone Review


Apart from some cards decks for the Skaven, Dwarfs and Halfing teams, this is the biggest release we have seen since Bloodbowl Season 2 was launched in 2020. Deathzone has been billed as a must have for all coaches worth their salt. I have read through the book and can safely yes it does. 

What's in the Book?

As you can see it packed to the gills with background, rules and new play mode. I will break it down below:

World History:- This section offers more background since the fall of NAF and has some really nice additions.

Inducements:- A good third of the book is some brand new inducements to add more punch and variety to your team. From famous coaching staff to Halfling Hot Pot there is something in there for every team. I am certainly looking forward to seeing what the chef will pull out of the pot at half time.

Fabulous Freebooters:- Here you find rules for creating your own mercenary players, I am going to make use of this section to create some of my own star players.

Titanic Effort:- Its all about the giants baby. At a whopping 350,000 gold you can add a giant into your team. Covering 4 squares and the hardest thing to stride onto a BloodBowl pitch this is something I really want to paint and add to my collection.

Sponsorship & Stadia :- Want to have your team sponsored or some cool rules for your home stadium then this the place to look. 

Balls & Weather :- The balls have featured before in either Spike magazines or on the outside of the pitch boxes. But it is nice to have them all in one place with some very cool additions.

Match Events:- If you want some randomness added to your matches these tables give some fun actions to add spice to the game. I however would not really recommend them for league or tournament play as some of them will unbalance the game.

Blood Bowl Sevens:- For those of you short on time or looking to run a one day tournament then Sevens is for you.

As you may have guessed it is a seven aside game, played on a smaller pitch. So quicker games meaning that most games should only take an hour to play.

I am looking forward to play some upcoming games using sevens with Chris from work.

The book is a great addition to the second season and will offer a lot of players some wild and varied options for their teams and leagues. I am really looking forward to converting up a giant.

2021 The Year to Come

 As we stand on the door step to a New Year, it is that time of year that we close the door on the past year and look forward to upcoming New Year.

With many blogs and websites focusing on their hobby projects for the future. I am going to have a different slant on what my aims are.

  • I am looking forward to having the majority of the UK, Europe and World vaccinated,  so that we can all look forward to getting back to a new society. I say new society as I hope that we have all learnt to be more caring and understanding of each through a troubled and turbulent 2020.
  • Looking forward to seeing my Mum who I have not seen for all of 2020 apart from via Zoom calls and 3 cancelled trips to Spain to try an see her.
  • Play a face to face game. I don't care what the game is :)
  • Expand and grow my cooking and drinks blog.
  • Loose weight and get back control of my body. I have been working on this for a few months now. But I am going to tie up weight loss with buying new models. 
  • Paint more than I buy. (HAHAHAHAAAA ) we all know that this is a virtual impossiblity.

So aims do you have for 2021

Blood Bowl Free Scenario

 Merry Christmas to all,

Hope that you were all good and on Santa's Good List.

I managed to get some new brushes and paint pot and the latest White Dwarf. 

December at work pretty flew past with long days ensuring that we could get all the orders out the door, and this completely impacted all my hobby time. But now with 10 days off and no where to go as in a Tier 4 lockdown means that can get some serious hobby done.

GW put up a free scenario featuring the Gouged Eye versus the Elfheim Eagles. Has 2 nice rosters and some in game achievements to try and complete.  Gonna give this a try over the hols. 

Will get some more postings up over the next few days.
