Progress Report 6/11/11 - I'm still alive!!

I'm still alive! Honest!! We finished the building, move, and set up of our new co-operative grocery store and opened the doors on May 31st. The past two weeks have been just as crazy as I had to figure out the logistics of how our new store operates and ensure we had plenty of product for our new customers to buy. All that is going well so I hope to get back to some hobby related items soon. 

Quick re-cap of what happened last month:
  • Beat my first round playoff opponents in KUBBL IV with the Hooded Menace only to lose badly in my second game against an undefeated Dwarf team. Some horrible dice rolls combined with my team being heavily outmatched going in kept the Undead dudes down on the pitch for most of the game. Finished the season with a record of 6 wins, 3 ties, and 4 losses. Not as good as I had hoped but a nice comeback after some tough mid-season games that left my team rocked.

  • Attended the first Kalamazoo Blood Bowl tournament the Special K Cup. Took the Nurgle team under the name "Nurgtritional Facts" with the player names all being gross nurgle themed cereal additives. No body seemed to notice or care about that. Tournament had a ton of Elf teams due to the special rules for the event. Managed something like 1 win, 1 tie, and 2 losses. Played all of the top ranking teams with the exception of the winner. All in all it was a pretty fun day out and I did manage to walk away with the "Cereal Killer" award for most casualties (16 by the end of 4 games).

  • Started painting my Lizardmen Blood Bowl team and got most of the painting done on my Ogre cheerleader model for a painting competition at the Ogre Stronghold but didn't manage to finish it in time. This was due to the crazy work schedule and the burst of 100 degree weather we had earlier this week when I tried to get it done before the deadline. Here's two quick shots of where she's at right now:

I like the way she's turning out. Not bad for a model that was missing an arm when I got it!

We're in the middle of a bit of a KUBBL downtime for the summer, or possibly due to lack of interest, but I have to get a team together for ZlurpeeBowl next month and that may involve some additional painting. Or maybe I will just take my Ogres and lose all weekend.. who knows?!
