My favorite part of Blood Bowl is the miniatures.
I remember when first ed. came out, I said to a
friend, we should look for figures we can convert to this game, so we did. Most
of these early attempts at replacing the card stand-ups with miniatures are
(thankfully) long gone, but I still have the converted minotaur, Blight
Headsmasher, and King Tough, a mummy, and a few more.
At last count, I
have 1209 blood bowl/fantasy football figures. I collect just about everything.
The only thing I don't buy is side line staff (coaches, cheerleaders,
apothecaries). I do buy ref figures, and I’m hoping someone makes some rules for
As I’m commish of a big league, I am always ready to loan out a
team. The only request I make to the borrower, is paint the team, if its one of
my many unpainted teams. If the borrower isn’t a painter, I’ll ask what color he
wants the team, and I paint it (I’m not the fastest painter, but I’ll get it
done in a week or so).
As my collection is getting bigger by the week
(I sometimes buy figures every week, sometimes just one figure, sometimes a full
team) I have cut down on some things.
I won't buy another Amazon team
no more females, period. Big titties are nice in real life, but I’ve had it with
bb figures. As I have about 50 big guys, I have to cut them off as well. Well,
maybe not big guys, but...
I’m also the dice guy in our club (the
Thursday Night Heroes), as I have about 50 block dice. GW doesn’t sell cheap
block dice anymore (they had them for 50 cents each for the longest time but
now, they are sold out). In fact, my block dice collection was almost at 100,
but I sold 50 to some club in Canada, this was BEFORE I knew GW
USA had run out of the white block
dice. All I ask is they are returned after game day (Saturday, tho with a club
named Thursday Night Heroes, you'd think we played on Thursday night, right?
More on the heroes later).
We've been a game club since 1984. We are
mostly a miniature wargames club, but we play blood bowl twice a year. We play a
very modified 3rd ed. we make a team, and retire the team after the season. This
way, we don't have to bother with high tv vs low tv. everybody starts their team
at the same tv.
The most important rule rules our league. Everybody
is there to have a good time. I think a lot of people forget this. We've had to
ask certain people to not play in our league. Sad but true.
But its a
good time league, and if that’s important to you, you are welcome to look us
