Well I will start with an apology for taking so long to make a blog post. I am aware that it’s been a while. So lets get into what I have been up to
In Round 7 my Ogres took on Matt Shaw’s Elven Union team and …… got absolutely decimated.
I despise Elven Union/Pro Elves and came out of this game on the painful side of a 6-0 loss!
Which is why, if I am being honest, I haven’t written a fluff piece on the game. I could barely look at my notes afterwards, And I was happy to take a break during the Bye Week.
Round 9 will be against the always great Ringbeard with his Amazon team, followed by Dark Elves in Week 10
In other tabletop, I helped Ringbeard with his NAFC preparation. He ran Halflings (my new love) against a Nurgle team. The game ended 1-0 to the ‘flings, with me making a mistake in the first half to deny myself a score; I need to count squares away from Treemen.
Getting away from Ogres was a nice palette cleanser, Nurgle being the team that seems to fit my playstyle a little easier.
I am using Halflings in the FUMBBL based SAWBBL league. Even though I am not from the Swindon area, the Halfling Half Biscuit are there to prop up the division.
I am using FUMBBL a lot more for my Blood Bowl fix. My record on there isn’t the greatest, but this is down to two reasons:
- I mainly use Halflings, Nurgle or Ogres
- I don’t cherrypick games
Unskilled stunty and Nurgle teams are very difficult to use against teams with even a couple of skills, with them being Tier 2 or 3 in usual tournaments.
The cherrypicking in Ranked games is something that I don’t buy into. I will play against any team, regardless of TV or Tier. This has meant my Halflings have been up against Skaven, High Elves, and Undead of all varieties.
If I was playing it to pad my rankings up, my Halflings would only play other Stunties, for example. But I like to play, so I don’t turn games down.
And speaking of which, if you would like to challenge me, and possibly appear on the channel, sling my an inbox on my Profile Page there.
I am proud to announce my membership to the FLING NATION!
With the newly released Halfling team, along with the YouTube channel and FUMBBL, this Waterbowl season will be the last I use anything but Halflings for the foreseeable future!
Special thanks go to the Two Drunk Flings cast for inspiring me in this decision.
I am just waiting for my shirt now!
