Blood Bowl was the first miniatures game I had ever played, back when I didn't even know what "Games Workshop" was. I've always loved this game, and now that the newest edition of Blood Bowl is out, I didn't hesitate to pick up my copy. Here's a look at some of the components in the box set. I haven't gotten through the rules yet, but it looks like it plays mostly the same with minor variations.
My corpse carts have been kicking around without any drivers for quite some time. The reason for this was that, in previous editions, the cart could be used as a mount for a necromancer. My intention was to use the corpsemaster models to represent a necromancer driving the cart, and I never got around to building them.
Since that option is gone in Age of Sigmar, and the carts have different attack profiles depending on how the corpsemasters are armed, I decided it was time to properly finish the carts.
I've finally finished up my archery dream team and knocked a project off of my Undead to-do list. You've seen the Tomb Prince Selketta in a previous post, but the unit champions and banners for the skeleton archer units are painted and ready for battle.
As long as I've been playing Warhammer, I've been writing backstories for my characters and updating the lore as significant events happen in games I've played or in the evolution of the rules. I've collected many of them in this blog over the past years. This post is a compilation of everything so far, with a few updates to reflect the current status of the army and to fill in some of the blanks and flesh out the remaining characters.
My buddy Chris came out to visit last week, and he pitted his Khorne Bloodbound army against my Undead. (And we got to break in my new terrain!) You can see more of Chris's models on his blog:World of Walton'scrafts
We played the Escalation scenario from the General's Handbook. Each of us divided our army into three parts, deployed the first third, and then the rest would arrive in turns two and three. The battlefield was divided diagonally, and we were trying to control three objectives– The mausoleum in the upper right corner, the large monument in the center, and the small shrine in the lower left corner.
