Hi, let me introduce myself, i'm snowy sparkles Skaven linerat to the underworld team recently formed to join your DBBL. I want to talk about our journey to the championship (yea right... ed) and the wonders we perform on the pitch on the way.

Last night was the first warm up proper of the team... we played a friendly
ehemm! vs the old bones that call themselves Thirteen sons.

We kicked off in perfect blood bowl weather and in true underworld style the ball sailed in a perfect arc into the waiting hands of their thro-ra. the 3 Gobbo's given line duty then accepted their fate of the incoming fire. Luckily a stun being the worst of the punishment... That however was not a sign of things to come!

In our turn Tommy the tiger, top blitzer smashed a guardian to the ground, only his regenerative powers saved him from an early bath
(in sand??)

The boney revenge came swift after that,
turn 2 saw Deene the linerat Off (although our team doctor kept him in the fight)
turn 3 our other blitzer Grandpa MNG'd (skitter stab stab ably standing in)
turn 4 our troll ko'd and a gobbo hurt!

The highlight of the drive saw the vortex (star goblin) blitz through a guardian wall and 1dice the ball carrier to the side lines, the ball refused to drop kindly however and the opposition had it in their grasp the following turn.

they scored turn 8, but fortunately Urglich came back and The vortex stood confident behind him ready for the inevitable TTM... unfortunately the Khemri cheats did something to the ball... cos I fumbled the pickup


2nd half to follow

Upchuck took the ball at the third time of trying and due to having failed the previous turn the khemri piled in to mount pressure, he handed me the ball after The vortex had cleared a path and I scarpered ... rats are faster than skellies don't ya know.

They put so much pressure thou I felt I had no option but to run it in.... back on defence /gulp

With 5 turns to score and their blitzers seemingly unable to NOT send a player off the pitch their drive started with gusto.

Ill be honest here, they drove forward and there was little our dwindled numbers could do.... Our turn 7 being the biggest factor on the outcome of the game.

a 1/2 dice stun and a 1 dice stun on a guardian made their turn 7 very tricky indeed, and a dodge from wee man saw the vortex blitz their carrier off the pitch and with it their chances of the win.

1-1 it finished, and as a rat of small stature .... that's a win in my books! although had it been a league game a dead gobbo and AV bust gobbo 2 MNG rats and an MNG gobbo sees us struggling from there on in!

Defence and good player positioning are going to be critical to make them last.

Until you've developed killers of your own! No one can complain you're powergaming it with underworld ;)

What's the long term plan for development? CPOMB blitzers, big hand thrower, some two-headed gobbo's? Never seen a developed Underworld team so I'm not sure where the linerats go, suppose they still struggle to get past wrestle/fend :)

Weirdly, gobbo's protect the rest of the team... so more than 2heads is likely a pipedream.

Full death on blitzers to give you a degree of hope in the numbers race, and the rest are a mix of survival and insane skill choices, big hand 2 heads on 1 gobbo would be nice,

so far online its my throwers that have been hardest to keep skills on, not much past block, wrestle fend lino's are nice.

the team can be insane... they are hugely entertaining... but make no bones about it, when it goes bad it goes really bad

Best lino's I've had are block claw MB and wrestle dodge +ag tackle

But its more than just their fun factor

They are a joy to put on the table, each model unique... named after their creator and the individuality sings when they line up, a black and a white lino, an amazing tiger for a blitzer, Rayners's technical masterclass and pauls grittier thrower

I've got Russell Wilson and Ben Rothesberger for quarterbacks :) and a whole host of mutated gobbo's that are all vastly different and a beautiful troll centrepiece. Damn but I love them

Oops, guessing I'm the only one who painted the bases green then!

They look awesome together.

Adds to their character mate :)

I numbered the bases where necessary and stuck metal in where possible so they can all hold the ball ... and got some photo's

Wow! I think the whole team together looks really cool! Really 'chaotic' rag-tag feel to them that fits perfectly with Underworld.

Today we lined up for the new year celebration with a charity match in aid of those suffering from warpstone mutation, it would be a rat on rat game versus Iron Claw Raiders.

The entire game was played in pouring rain, which proved very costly for the full rat lineup... with 4 failed pickups, they were swarmed and lost the first touch down (it just goes to show, new team, new dice... same coach . a Gazillion 1's)

We [superior] underworlders turned the Raiders over again after a double skull from the rat orge making it 2-0 half time... we were also still playing 11 vs their 7

5 turns of 2nd half with numbers saw us apply the pressure, take more Skaven out and score for 3-0

Followed up by a great onside kick to the LOS and a Blitz to secure the ball :twisted: ... the game ended 4-0 with an MNG gutter runner an Ag bust linerat, a move bust Linerat and a dead line rat.... costly for the raiders

The blood bowl malarkey is easy. we're gonna rule this league :shock: :? :roll:
