NABBO Tea Cup 2011 - pt. 3 -

(Third and last update on the NABBO Tea Cup 2011 article)

The day of the tournament has come and gone...
Its impressive how fast an entire day runs when you're having a blast! (And that's probably the best way I find to define how the whole tournament went!)
Having said that, and despite all the fun of getting together with some old league friends, all the games were quite competitive and the "award winners" were only decided in the last game round of the day. I was glad to see how, apparently (and much like riding a bike), old timers didn't forget how much fun it is to roll Pow's against your opponent's team, and so they did as much as Nuffle or the rerolls allowed!
Everybody loved the "Tea Cup 2011" official dugouts (which includes a weather and kick-off table presented by Merry Mayhem News!) but the stars of the day were the custom ivory/marble NABBO dice made by Chessex! Thumbs up to Joseph for such amazing work.

Pic 1: Clockwork Green (orc) preparing the kick-off to the Black Ferns (Amazon), only to see them show off their playbook and equalise in the last three turns of the match. That would turn out to be the only TD conceded by the greens in the entire competition, feat that would assure them the top place in tournament!

Pic 2: Here the Rockandrolla Steel Heads (dwarf) stretch out through the entire field, trying to hold off the Deep-Six Diggers (Necromantic). The resilience of the short fellows kept them in the game for a long time but Necro team ended up capitalising on their fast movement, finishing this game with a 2-1 win.

Pic3: The (induced by brew abuse) brawling style of play of the Lanshor Wolves (Norse) fell short against the dodgy game of the Prowling Goddesses (Amazon).
Winning by 2-1 the lady's proved to the horn-helmeted norse that they could pick and stand a fight as good as any half-naked men, theory that proved to be right almost 'till the end, when they faced the half-naked orcs of Clockwork Green loosing by 0-1 in the end of the second half.

Pic 4: Here's the official stuff: our custom NABBO "Failing Go-For-It's Since 1999" dice, and "Tea Cup 2011" dugout! We might have a couple of them left to sell if someone is interested. By the way Zug is only there for scale!

One final word...
Unfortunately, due to some work related problems that required his presence, Abraxis was not able to attend to it as we all wish he did, but we will no doubt have a ton of other chances to welcome him and his newly painted Midgets!

NABBO Tea Cup 2011 - pt. 2 -

(second part of NABBO Tea Cup 2011 article)

Just another few words of a "not-that-short-now" short story.

Back then (1999), fluff was perhaps "the most" important thing and so the almost forgotten background story of the NABBO League stated something like this...
"Once upon a time there was a miserably poor, rural community where most crops kept being lost or destroyed by endless years of invading Chaos or Orc raids, only halted when really, but reeeeally bad weather settled in! Only the toughest, the crippled or the stupid remained in those harsh border lands, fighting to survive each day.

It's not difficult to understand that the once beautifully cultivated fields got left in complete neglect as other far more important issues (such as running or fighting for their life's) arised.
Hunger was almost a constant, and as the years went by, both men and beasts left behind in the aftermath of the invasions, struggled to find something to eat.
And that is when it all comes together: One foggy afternoon, while going back to the settlement empty handed, a team of human scouts short cuted through an open field when one of them spotted a huge turnip just a few meters ahead.
Obviously they went for it, but just as they got hold of the tasty vegetable, they realised they were not alone in the field...

Suddenly the fog seemed to have disappeared and there they were, standing right in the middle of an open field with of a bunch of orc's, apparently as surprised as they were, between them and the safety of their settlement.
After the initial moments of surprise for both sides, they soon realise that neither were war party's, but scouts looking for the very same thing - food -, and as far as both could tell the only thing eatable out there without too much of a trouble was that turnip!

The story goes on and on, stating how both sides slammed into one another, using whatever skills they had, sometimes running and passing the turnip amongst them selves, other times just tackling and blocking, in an attempt to grab or keep hold of the turnip, that annoyingly kept changing sides...
No one really knows for sure in which side's soup that turnip ended, as nowadays both races have slightly different endings for the story, but for what it's worth, similar brawls kept happening in that same field long after any turnip sprouted there, turning it into a festival (food, drinks, and brawls), and later into a real event (brawls, with drinks and food)!

That huge turnip was never forgotten and earned its place in the crest of the organised league that "a simple brawl" had turned into, pictured in gold and soaring high over the stripes that represented the once cultivated fields.
So what about the name of the league?
Oh that, was an homage to that turnip since the very start, as "nabo" is the word for "turnip" in the native language and in that way the acronym N.A.B.B.O would have a double meaning as Neglectic Agricultural Blood Bowl Organization.

NABBO Tea Cup 2011

Short story...
As most of us Blood Bowl die hard fans would certainly like to, the fact is that only a chosen lucky few get the chance or opportunity to play in big tournaments.
A few years back, in one of ours BB league night the "Big Tournament" subject came up: the NAF guys were starting to plan the first NAF World Cup!
For a few minutes we all had that grin in our face, day dreaming of how "grand" would be attending to it, but as much as we all would like to, real life stuff such as work, family, economics, or a mix of them all ended up luring our expectations.

This year, to commemorate our very special 10th league (in more than 12 years of existence), we've decided to put together our own tournament, and invite to it all our past and present league players and a few friends too (thumbs up to Abraxis for planning on coming to commemorate and play with us)!

The tournment will be held in a single day (three games, top ranking coaches playing each other each round), the coaches will have 1,100,000 g.c. to spend in players, skills, re-rolls, etc. and in the end of the day three coaches will be awarded: the best coach (highest score), the most violent (more casualtys), and the "wooden spoon" (for the lowest scoring coach in the cup).

As we are a very small league there wont be any big glittering prizes, except for a "thematic" Cup for each of the awarded coaches, however we did produce a custom made Dugout, and a set of dice with our logo and motto for the past 12 years.

(to be continued...)

A bunch of pic's of the event will eventually be posted there too.

Huge Non-BloodBowl related post...

*WARNING-If you dont like Raw Black better jump to another post :P *

A couple of months ago,i was wandering through Youtube and decided to search for WAR BLASPHEMY...wich was a one-man-band that i´ve decided to create around 1999.

Well,the results came back a couple of audio videos with some songs i´ve made :) Cool :P´s a little 12 years old bio:

"WAR BLASPHEMY, was created in 2000,it was supposed to be one demon project,I was influenced by the deeds of Black Sabbath, Darkthrone, Venom, Desaster, Slayer, etc..., but since i couldn?t play drums,the project had to sleep until the end of 2001,at that time i was playing in a black metal band named Epping Forest were i meet Thormenthor(drummer)...i talked with him about the project and showed him some musics...he liked,so we proceded to record the first demo"For the Glory of the Unpure"...and what an adventure it was(remember the recording of the drums at 7.30/8.00 in the morning...).This demo camed out through Hell War Prod in 2002 and got a good sold out fast at the label(and i only have the last 50 of the 666 copies). After,i start thinking in new material...the result was "The Prophecy of the Apocalypse",a 2 song+ intro Ep...or at least it was intended to be,because the running time was too much for a 7" and to less for a tape or cd,so i released it myself on my label WaraxiS Prod.,it was released in Dvd Boxes with professional covers...but was limited only to 20 copies,so,only the close ones got a copie of it.The response to this CdR-Ep was great but small due to the short number of copies...maybe it will be re-released on a split tape(with Thy Black Blood?????) by War Prod.(i hope so). By this time,a split 7" with Inner Helvete was planed,it should be released by Total Holocaust Rec. from Sweden,but it didnt turn that way.The songs were recorded,the covers were made,but at the last minute,Total Holocaust stoped releasing vinyl...if there are some label interested in releasing that piece of blasphemy,please contact Total Holocaust,because i think that they even pressed the covers,so its less work to do. This was in 2003. Meanwile,i had to left Epping Forest due to lack of time,but one thing was certain,i was not going to end War Blasphemy.I started to compose new material...this time the songs were much shorter but straight to the point,the sound becomed more raw and closer to the old death/black ala Beherit.I played all instruments this time,and for the last time,it was not because i had problems with Thormenthor,i was just because we didnt have the same free time,and that way we couldn?t gather to record the fucking songs. This time i had the help of Impius from Inner Helvete...he created all the intros and mixed the songs,adding sometimes some explosions to it...(the previous releases were all mixed by MysticcosmoS...thanks mate). This songs became the first War Blasphemy album...if you can call it that...because it have 11 songs,but only 20 min. +/- of running time..but anyway,some of the Metal masterpieces have less more than 20 min. So,stop complaining about the short running time i´ll do a Black Metal opera or something with just one conceptual song with the running time of 70 min. or so...hahahaha. This new blasphemy is called "Satanic Armageddon" and was supposed to be released in the end of 2004 through Hell War Prod. and WaraxiS Prod. in tape format,but there was some delays,so it will be released only in 2005(and dont ask me when...). I am looking also to release it in vinyl format,and it will have the CdR-Ep as bonus,so,once more,if anyone is interested,just contact me. Anyway,there are 3 songs recorded at the moment(a cover,a new one and a re-recorded) and Thormenthor is the drummer( was the shortest recording session i had ever seen...1,2,3...first take...good enough??...well,good bye then...HAHAHA). War Blasphemy never played any concert...but maybe in a near future,things can change...and for that i only need some guy who wants to play bass,and he must have a big house with a steady rehersal place,and lots of money to spend in the promotion of War Blasphemy.... And i think this is all...if something important happens in the mean time,it will be added in the news...


And now,the vids:

And thats it...i havent slept for 29 hours now and i didnt have any idea for a post so,there you have it...a full professional sausage stuffing post lolol.

A different perspective...

If you liked Tristan´s post about the Blingtoof´s tournament,then check this report:


Pretty cool huh?

blingtoof's gitbash - a fouling I will go!

The inaugural blingtoof's gitbash is in the books and I fully succeeded (and I mean FULLY) in winning the "Best Fouler" award.  I will save the details for further down the post but suffice to say that while second fouler had nearly triple the fouling points that third fouler had, he was still over 40 (yes FORTY) points behind me. MUHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!
"Best Fouler" trophy - bag of rats with chain

Game 1 was vs Tyler and his Orc team.  There are some pics below. Unfortunately for him he left his thrower too exposed early after receiving the kick and I managed to (after fouling for that turn of course) blitz his thrower down and steal the ball.  I stalled for a turn but by then a lot of his players were off the pitch so I scored to get more back on (to foul - lol).  He very nearly started the game without taking an upgrade package but I made sure he did, that would have just been unfair.  So he gave one blitzer +AG and someone +AV I think. In the second half I stalled too long and he caught my ghoul, then managed to work his way up the pitch to score.  To be honest I wasn't too upset as I didn't really want to be winning all my games.  

Game ended in a 1-1 tie and I garnered 24 (TWENTY FOUR) fouling points (6 stun, 5 KO, 2 CAS from fouls)

Game 2 was vs Chris (the tournament organizer) and his underworld.  We all got a normal skill to give to a goblin and a normal skill for anyone.  I gave my Fan Favourite goblin Sure Feet and my Leader mummy Grab. Chris got a quick 2-0 lead built up, and was really smart about avoiding my fouling.  I did foul out a fair number of his guys including his pumpkin troll (see pics 2 & 3 from below).  From there I caught up with two quick touchdowns of my own, but towards the end of the game he was looking pretty sure to get a third and I just took advantage of the proximity of his players to foul more!

Game 2 ended in a 3-2 loss and I scored 22 (TWENTY TWO) fouling points (2 stun, 4 KO, 3 CAS from fouls)

Game 3 was vs. Robert and his Orc team (there must have been at least four orc teams out of fourteen coaches).  We again got two normal skills to distribute so I gave Sure Feet to my goblin with Sneaky Git and Guard to a wight. He had a pretty standard non-troll orc team and he was the eventual wooden spoon recipient.  I tried to help Rob out a bit as he was obviously new to the game, so I showed him a bit about how to line up blocks so if you only get pushes you can block with another player, etc.  I had a lot of trouble knocking down his Orcs (he had a lot of Block) and so suffered my lowest fouling points game in the tournament.

Game ended 2-0 win and I scored 15 (only fifteen? :-( ) fouling points (5 stun, 3 KO, 1 CAS from fouls)

So I ended day one with a respectable 1 win / 1 loss / 1 tie (especially considering how frequently I ignored the ball!) and a massive 61 (yes, SIXTY ONE) fouling points.  The next highest had 40. I found out my next opponent was a chaos pact team so I was looking forward to fouling a bunch of goblins and skaven! 

Game 4 was vs. Mark D and his chaos pact team. I gave my last skeleton Dirty Player and last goblin Sneaky Git.  He quickly went up 2-0 but my fouling began to take it's toll.  I totally ignored the ball for the entire game, and it led to a hilarious conclusion in the final turns of the second half.  Marks ogre had kept blitzing towards the ball in my end while I was fouling the rest of his team near the scrimmage line.  He managed to get the ogre to pick up the ball and all the way to the end zone. Then he called it - "watch now he's going to go bonehead on the end zone line" and of course - nuffle works with no mystery at all.  3 boneheads in a row gave me a chance to sneak a goblin onto the pitch and help tie up the ogre with a skeleton. In one of my last turns I just decided to throw a two die uphill block and double-kapow'd the ogre, breaking his armour and stunning him for Mark's last turn.

Game ended 2-0 loss and I racked up 26 (TWENTY SIX, hell yea!!) fouling points (4 stun, 1 KO, 5 CAS from fouls)

Game 5 was the final game and I was matched up against Craig who was also trying for the fouling award but quite far behind me in points. I gave my Fan Favourite goblin +AG and my wight with Tackle +ST.  This was the second underworld team I played, and we both ignored the ball to concentrate on fouling (I did use it to distract him several times - AFTER my foul for that turn of course!) thanks to Stunty & Dirty Player I was quite successful in getting his players off the pitch.  He kept throwing the ball into my end to try and keep the game tied.  Late in the game, with his last player on the pitch (his troll) he threw a 3 die blitz against my same goblin who blocked Marks ogre down, rolled triple skulls and failed his loner to reroll! I then proceeded to break armour and KO the troll - BOOYAAH!  With three turns left and the board empty of underworld players I did manage to score a touchdown (took all three turns cuz I had no rerolls and ghouls were dropping my hand offs!) which very nearly gave Craig the wooden spoon but he did have lots of fouling points which were first tiebreaker.

Game ended 1-0 win and I got 29 (TWENTY FREAKIN NINE!) fouling points (1 stun, 6 KO, 4 CAS from fouls.

Day two finished up 1 win / 1 loss and a massive 55 (FIFTY FIVE in two games!!) fouling points, bringing my grand total up to 116, with Craig (my final opponent) next highest with 72.  "Best Fouler" was in the bag and I managed a pretty reasonable winning % as well with 2 wins / 2 losses / 1 tie.

Some other stats, I actually placed 7th overall, which is just into the top 50 percentile (with 14 coaches) and I was 8th for most touchdowns and 10th for most casualties.

Also congrats to my buddy Mike @ shiftedmatrix for winning Best Team award with his Nurgle Rotters.

blingtoof undead/goblin roster

Here's my roster for the blingtoof tournament starting tomorrow at meeplemart.  Am pretty set on my plan but any tips for massive fouling is much appreciated! I even setup my printed roster with lots of space to track my fouling points!

mummy w leader
wight w tackle
3x ghoul
2x zombie
2x skeleton w dirty player
goblin w sneaky git
goblin w fan favourite
2x reroll

You read that right, 15 players! I am going all out for the fouling award, we are talking aiming for 80 turns of fouls over 5 games. Definitely expect to have some players ejected. I have the one cheap bribe (50K) available to sanctioned teams and decided to use the double for leader on a mummy.

  • Going to start w fan favourite goblin on the pitch.  
  • Attempt to sneak on the vanilla gobbo sometime around turn 5-8.
  • Have 1 skel with dirty player on, save the other for when he gets ejected.
  • So hopefully late game I still have a dirty player and if I suffer bad ejections will have the gobbo with sneaky git.

Looking for advice regarding whether I play the vanilla skel or 3rd ghoul from the start? Thoughts??

Expect some live tweets tomorrow.  Probably less than normal as time at the store is very tight, probably just every foul that results in something (could hopefully be lots of tweets - lol)

R.I.P. Flattus Maximus...

...crap,Cory was found dead... :(

"Death of Cory Smoot-On November 3, 2011, GWAR released a statement to that Cory Smoot had died.According to Metalsucks: It is with a sense of profound loss and tragedy that the members of GWAR must announce the passing of their long time guitarist and beloved friend Cory Smoot, also known to thousands of metal fans worldwide as Flattus Maximus. Cory was found deceased this morning as the band prepared for a border crossing. There is no word as to the cause of death and the members of GWAR are completely shocked and devastated that this has occurred. At this point there is no word on arrangements and the disposition of the remainder of GWAR’s current North American tour, nor are there any details regarding long term plans. At this point we are just dealing with the loss of our dear friend and brother, one of the most talented guitar players in metal today. We ask that our fans and the media be respectful of our request for privacy for those that have suffered this terrible loss. A full statement will be coming in the next day or so, in the meantime please give your thoughts and your prayers to Cory, his family, and all the people that love him.

Thanks to Roy Whutupshun Moris for posting this in his FB...

I must say that this is the kind of stuff that keeps the Halloween spirit alive ^^


Ps-How many of you danced with this?I sure danced...lolol

Deathbowl IX: Year of the Elf summary

Here I just wanted to compile a quick Deathbowl IX summary.  My apologies for how long this has taken, I had no opportunity to post anything while in Ottawa for the tournament due to all the drinking and shenanigans - and once back I had an extremely busy week so this was really my first day with a solid chunk of free time I could devote to compiling the recaps.

Game 1 recap

Game 2 recap

Game 3 recap

Game 4 recap

In the end I went 1 win/2 losses/1 tie, and finished in 17th place (out of 20) - so another game would have put me on the bottom table!  I finished just behind my opponent Colin (orxymandiuz) from game 4 even though we tied so I`m guessing he had less losses than me.  Happy I managed to stay above the new kid Kohl who joined us for his first tournament (who won the rising star as he was greatly improved across the tournament) and considering who my losses were to I don't feel too bad about my performance.

Slann are definitely a strong team for the deathbowl format, getting Leap + Very Long Legs is a potent combination.  I think next year I may need to try having a super player like Leathan does when the tournament rules offer than option.  I will need to practice keeping that player alive too.

Who doesn´t love Orcs? ^^

Hey guys...this is just a quick update about the Orclahoma Bowl.

Be sure to check the website here and follow the main guys via twitter: Scott Delsigne and Steve Campbell


"Get Ready for the Orclahoma Bowl!

Orclahoma... a land of savagery in both its weather and its inhabitants. Long ago driven from the rest of the Southlands, the many tribes of Savage Orcs came to this land and called it "WAAAAHH!", which translates to something stupid, so most people just called it Orclahoma. Told they'd have their own land,the Orcs prospered and lived peacefully, or as peacefully as Orcs can live. Not long after, the fabled tomes of Nuffle were found and the games reached far and wide across the great lands.

After many years of reporting for the Nuffle Broadcasting Cabal, Orclahoma native, "Scary" Harry Badsaw, decided what better way to share his love of Blood Bowl with his people than by holding his very own tournament. With that, the Orclahoma Bowl was born!

Knowing most teams and coaches have no desire to come to the savage land, Badsaw built an impressive stadium(Badsaw Farmily Memorial Stadium) and convinced some Greenskin star players to offer their services up to any team who was willing to pay them. Not only did he get current star players, he managed to talk "The Crom" himself, Cromnard Dung, out of retirement and to offer his services for this tournament! Who knows who might show up in future tournaments, rumor has it that Greaser Geargrinder was seen buying new parts...

Fans of Blood Bowl will be glued to their seats! The mighty Orcs bashing and mauling each other! The Orclahoma weather changing hard and fast! Great fun will be had by all! And even more-so by the fans that survive!

All games will be broadcast by Cabalvision!"

...been playing FUMBBL and...i think its awesome,especially if you dont have Cyanide´s Blood Bowl like me....and i mean an original copy here...lolol.

My most active team (2 games) is the HairyMidgets (Dwarfs)...i´ve lost the 2 games,2-0 both,against Undead and Chaos,lost a blocker wich turned into a zombie and in 32 turns,i´ve rolled between 15 and 20 skulls...

Nuffle hates me so much ^^

Anyway,im having lots of fun,so,if you play FUMBBL,add me to your buddy user name is AlmightyAbraxis...

I do roll LOTS of skulls ;)

It's almost MAYHEM time aka off to Deathbowl IX

Well I completely failed at doing any painting at all on the team I wanted to bring this year (that I started painting immediately after last year - can you say EPIC fail???) but I feel I have sufficient excuse with how busy things have been (buying a house, staging our condo to sell, being the only guy left in our department at work) so I don't feel too bad about it - there's always next year!!  For any NAF members you can check out the NAF thread for more info if you are interested!

In the end I couldn't even decide on a single roster, so I am bringing both the slann and elf models and will see how things pan out over tonight.  I have 3 of my preferred rosters printed out (1 slann / 2 elf) which should be pretty sufficient to make a choice tonight.  If anything the slann would only change a single skill on one catcher so I can just cross that out.  If I end up re-doing the pro elf roster completely I could be in for some last minute scribbling!
who wouldn't wanna get their hands on this trophy!!
Just a quick update to remind everyone I will be doing some live tweeting during the games (should be easy when I have 3 turns to do nothing!!) probably with more pics since it's hosted at the T.O.s house - so wifi should be available.  Depending on how quickly my games finish I will either do individual game recaps, or possibly day 1 / day 2 recaps on both blogs. My goal is to try and improve upon my 6th place finish last year, note to self (if using slann) - diving catch provides +1 to catching accurate passes!!

Paper models!

A few weeks ago while looking up for some ideas for a specific Blood Bowl model, I came across Your Lord and Master's, a blog with tons of interesting stuff!

From general wargaming news and rumours, to paper scenario pieces and models (including paper models for Blood Bowl teams and side line miniatures), there's a lot of stuff in there that can be of use and well worth to check!
Take a second to do a search in there, and you'll probably find a nice surprise or two to add to your wargaming table!

Here's a sample: The Twins Angelina and Jolee!

Kudos to fellow TFF member Adam Souza for the blog and most of the downloadable work in there!

Sugar frenzyed panda rampage!

Ear ye! Ear ye!
Sugar frenzied panda rampage!
Ear ye! Ear ye!

Using the cover of the "100 posts celebration" of the well established and respected blog The Chaos Manifesto, an - refered to as - feroucious, mean and hungry HotPANDA, swiped all the security and took over, in a unprecedented display of brute force and cake gore!
Rumours say there's a bounty on his head but only of its a few yards from the body.

Cant confirm all the details but I do know there's a prize in there!
Yet, you might want to check it out yourself as I might just have misunderstood it slightly...

Go for it: The Chaos Manifesto

painted stuff from AbraxiS and Axt

I had nothing to do with this painting (except providing the fig itself - in some cases!!)
left to right by; Axt, hakomike, AbraxiS
Here's a quick snap of three (count 'em, 3!) harlequins painted for me by others.  You can see who painted them in the caption, and likely know already (from AbraxiS on twitter) that the awesome guys here AbraxiS (follow his twitter) & Axt painted one each. The one in the middle was generously painted by Golden Daemon Winner Mike Howell (check out his blog / follow his twitter).  Thanks again Gents!!

These are added to my other two harlequins (1 needs some touching up) to form my Spire Brat pack for Necromunda (based on Anthony Cases rules). Five gives me a good start and considering how expensive their equipment is, could be enough for a whole gang - but if you know me at all I like choice!  There are at least four (count 'em 4!!!) harlequins out there around the world with some amount of paint on them and eventually headed for me!
Finally a special bonus was included in the package from you crazy Portuguese! Axt took it upon himself to build me a couple blood bowl counters/tokens.  I was surprised and excited to see there was more than the harlequins in the box that arrived.  The hand coming out of the ground even glows in the dark!  Am looking forward to using both of these at the upcoming blingtoof tournament here in Toronto (a goblin themed tournament where I am going to bring my undead with a few goblins, the orc counter will be my bribe!)
custom torne bane flaming ears counter & random orc-y counter
If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend trading some painting with people.  You end up with some pieces that are truly meaningful and have huge sentimental value, and you get the chance to paint up some stuff that may be outside your usual wheelhouse (I painted a cowboy and a "anime/manga" looking character for Dave of mini painting for free)

Currently on my dock, I have;
  • A goliath looking near future ganger type for arabianknight (from E4 miniatures I believe)
  • A zombie for Axts massive zombie collection (will be a "fan" of my Torne Bane Flaming Ears blood bowl team)
  • A skaven warplock engineer that arrived with the harlquin painted by Mike Howell.  Will definitely be using some staining methods for his fur!
