Ye Orkshire Rippers: Behind the Scenes

So with our games club Bloodbowl league due to start in the next couple of weeks, I've written up my team. I wanted to put lots of smash factor in there, so I've left myself a bit thin in the reroll department, and I'm clearly a brand new team as I'm starting with 0 fan factor... hopefully we'll get a couple wins under our belt and start to earn some fans. The team has a thrower, 4 Blitzers, 3 Blockers, and 4 Linemen. Future expansion may go to a troll, though he is unreliable, and possibly another Blocker. But an early priority will be saving money for an extra reroll or two. Admittedly more expensive to buy once a season is underway but I have to do it this way to start with the team I want to start with.

With that many specialist players starting, I had no room for cheerleaders, although I have painted some up so they will be a priority on my hiring list, just so I can show them off.


I did include an apothecary, I felt that if I was going to spend so much money on specialist positions the last thing I wanted was a game one fatality, so the apothecary was insurance against that. I do have an old savage ork shaman I can use for this for now, though I am hunting for a better representation for an apothecary, and may have found something kinda cool for now... but I'm still waiting for it to be delivered.

I have dusted off my old manager, Alexis Furgi, and have repainted an old referee.


During my hunt for a suitable apothecary I have seen dozens of awesome models that make my dream of one day building a bloodbowl stadium all the more appealing, just slight downside that the newer bigger models (that I love) come with a newer bigger pitch (which is pretty) which doesn't bloody FIT in the old craps table I have that I had always planned to use. How bloody irritating!

Alexis has frequent disagreements with referees...
 
They aren't always settled in his favour...
