Still haven't spent any additional time painting, modeling, or playing WHFB. The "fantasy day" at the local game store went kaput as the store is no longer open on Sundays. Sad times for my fantasy addiction.
But!! Earlier this week I was contacted by one of the Kalamazoo Ultimate Blood Bowl League with this:
"We started a new blood bowl league in Kzoo, and wondered if you’d be interested in joining us. I see you are also a fan of beer….good beer that is. I am a brewer and so are at least two of our other players. Here is our site, and we definitely want some good coaches playing and good looking models too."
How could I resist something like this!? Beer?! Nerds?! Blood bowl?! I immediately sent a response of "Hell yeah!" and went out to the local league meeting on Wednesday night. After observing the game, and stumbling my way through half a match, I had signed up for the league and become a Blood Bowl coach... but I still didn't have a team.
Enter the Ogres! I've decided to model and paint myself an Ogre Blood Bowl team for entry in the new season of the league (which begins in just two weeks) and I am getting started on them tonight! I can't wait to see these big guys on the field, and hopefully I will manage to crush and kill a few star players and maybe even win a game or two in the process.
Stay tuned for more details in the coming days...
