... and false advertising!
Blood Bowl fever certainly seems the order of the day at the moment!
Here's the last few players to finish off the squad for my mixed team, the Slann in Spacer's - also my Round 3 entry for the LPL.
|A bit of muscle - Dwarf Blitzers|
Yes I know this model is a Lineman but what the hey!
Players of races who dislike each other may play on the same team, however the problem comes when the issue of passing the ball arises. A D6 had to be rolled and on a 1-3 the pass/hand off could be made as normal, but on a 4-6 the player refuses to give the ball up and can either hold on to it or pass to a player of a race he doesn't dislike.
|A few more Elves to add a little acrobatic grace to proceedings|
Luckily Humans only dislike Chaos Humans and Dwarves, Goblinoids and Dark Elves, etc. The Treeman has similar feelings although other large monsters are included in that list. Halflings are happy playing with anyone as long as they are fed well - similarly Ogres seem particularly enlightened in terms of race relations and will play with anyone as long as they get to hit stuff! Dwarves suffer animosity towards Goblinoids and dislike Elves.
The solution - two different squads for facing off different opponents.
|The whole team together|
Squad 1 - Humans, Dwarves, Halfling and Ogre - for taking on tougher teams and indulging in a bit of Halfling tossing!
Squad 2 - Humans, Dwarves, Elves, Halfling and Treeman - A flexible arrangement utilising Human and Dwarf muscle with their Blitzers (and Blockers, depending which edition I play) along with Elven catching abilities and higher agility. Plus I've always wanted to field a Treeman - either for throwing the Halfling or taking root in the opponents half and causing a nuisance there!
In other news - looks like the Spacers will be getting a game some time in the near future. Warlord Paul has laid down the gauntlet with his Greenback Gales...
