My start in wargames came in 2000 when I picked up a box of Ork Boyz in a dingy old hobby shop. This was the tip of the iceberg and I amassed a huge collection of miniatures. I tried out almost all of Games Workshop's games but mostly stuck to Warhammer Fantasy and developed a particular love of greenskins. I had a really great time in the hobby but little boys do grow up and at the age of 14 I decided to quit. I sold most of my miniatures and set about being a booze-hound and trying to get a girlfriend.
Almost 8 years later, here I am getting back into Blood Bowl.
But why Blood Bowl!?
- You don't need many models. It's cheap and easy to get a legal team on the pitch. You can feasibly convert all the models to create something unique.
- Blood Bowl has retained its goofy charm where Warhammer and 40K haven't. Probably because Games Workshop all but abandoned Blood Bowl before they got all serious.
- The Blood Bowl community is amazing. Such a passionate, friendly and helpful group of gamers I ne'er did see!
- It's just so damn fun!
So, most of what you see here will probably be Blood Bowl related. I may start playing other games at some point but I have enough on my plate for now.
Hope ya enjoy the blog!
