|H-Bomb's Dindrenzi vs my Aquans. Much reading of the new rules was needed!|
I've been playing Blood Bowl fairly regularly at the Chelmsford Bunker as the CBBBL VI is rattling on and there's still a month or two of gridiron action still to be played before the end of the season. I had another league game yesterday on the first club night of the year against Harvey (known to all in the Bunker as H-Bomb) and we had a quick intro game after of Firestorm Armada using the new 2.0 rulebook. I only picked up a copy of the new rulebook last night so we'll try to get a little more organised after the Blood Bowl season has ended to try to get a Firestorm campaign going.
I was hoping to get a little hobby time at the end of last year but it just didn't happen. I've got a few projects which need to get started so, whenever I get some spare time, I'll pick one and make a start. On the list at the moment are :
- A High Elf Blood Bowl team for next year's CBBBL league. I've never played any kind of elf team in a league so I think it's time I got one painted. I'm picking up paints for these at the moment - they're probably going to end up a purple / white scheme.
- Various Doctor Who miniatures from Black Tree Design. My buddy Darren and I managed to get printed copies of the Doctor Who Miniatures Game rulebook when the game designer did a limited print run. BTD helped out by having a 50% sale on all their Doctor Who range recently so I bought all eight versions of the Doctor that they sell plus a bunch of companions to go along with them. While I was at it, I bought some transparent 25mm bases so the minis will match whatever terrain we use them on. This will be a slow burn project but it would be good to get some games in on this.
- Fortune Hunters for DeepWars. Last year I bought into DeepWars - I've got all the Fortune Hunters models that are currently available. The models are absolutely lovely - really nice detail and the game looks pretty cool too.
That's enough to be getting on with and I'll probably make a start on the High Elves first.
The main thing I want to do this year is just keep gaming. I've got enough models for enough game systems that I really should be able to play a game of something each week. I also want to run Bunker Bowl again this year after last year's hiatus. Anything else on top of these I get to do will be a bonus!
