A few years ago I was moaning about never winning games and you lot said I should record my results and see if I was as bad as I thought. Over the next few months I proceded to win most of them (best streak ever!) so I plan to do it again through 2010. So new year and I've been thrashed already. Simon beat me 3-0 at bloodbowl in chaos league. Though my obese minotaur has now got wings so he can now officially be called DUMBO.

 

0-0-1 (win-draw-loss)

Right then, I'm seeing a trend. Dave thrashes me 3-1 in chaos league. This time the only gain is my skilled chaos warrior is now bone-headed!

 

0-0-2

I'm thinking about quitting BB now - played 2, won 2, TDs 7-1, Cas 4-1.


100% record, nothing to be sniffed at. ;)

Third attempt and no change. Lost 1-0 to mike. Finding team is being left behind by others. Can't wait for ARBBL so I can lose to someone different.

Well half a game against mike and not sure if I should call a draw or loss. Failed to score but also didn't turn over. My best player was a ghoul who rolled four ones in a row for dodging. Enough said.

 

0-0.5-3

This league can't end too soon. Simon beat me 3-1. Even with almost 600 worth of inducements the player skill base is not there.

 

0 - 0.5 - 4

Mordheim can go two ways. Skaven already written and could win some. Or dwarf lords of legends boxed set from the eighties used as a dwarf treasure hunters pack. Nostalgic, looking good, but ultimately awful as no ranged weapons eight models and movement three. Dwarfs it is then!!!

Catching up as Mike on holiday and site was unavailable!!

Finally played last game, of the worst league I have ever played in, and capped off with another impressive loss (1-0).

 

0 - 0.5 - 5

 

Played a four way Dungeonbowl and managed to persuade everyone else that they didn't have any re-rolls so my luck was shared. Teleports are the best thing ever and it was a massacre. No winner but also no losers, Yipee.

 

0 - 1.5 - 5

Ah Mordheim, a game won or lost on a leadership test!

Well two practice games with undead and won one lost one.

Decided to go orc in the campaign and hope to practice with next week.

 

1 - 1.5 - 6

The trick is not to roll for leadership tests! :)I like the Orcs, bit of everything and tough. So it's practice next week ? I'll take Reiklanders I think

Second practise and Dave's Reiklanders changed into Marienburgers. Second win, found them a challange to use so look forward to starting the campaign. (Must remember to tell myself all games are practise games)

(Might also try all games at ARRBL are team practice as well)

 

2 - 1.5 - 6

See If I can persuade Simon to let me have a different race in each round then they will be practice games. Might get kicked out though!!

I'm liking Mordheim. First week of campaign is a very very close win over Dave's marienburg gang

 

3 - 1.5 - 6

It was a good game, I enjoyed it. Still have no idea what to give my blokes for skills though. I'm gonna go join Warseer and get some other geeks to tell me what to do.....
