My debonair looks could survive much without looking any worse I'll have you know, the key ma boy, is start off exceptionally ugly in the first place

Result: Orchids 2 Princes 3

Post match commentary:
It was hard going playing elves twice, with the boyz little legs finding it hard to keep pace!
But the weather was on their side, with blizzards and rain most of the day!
Fouling was semi successful, with my dirty players constantly being sent off (someone obviously tipped the refs), the rest of the team were left unhindered to proper put the boot in!
They had a little bit of luck in their game against the undead, enjoying a massive mid field brawl with some mummies! And in the second half, under the scrutiny of the other teams coaches, the Orchids managed to maintain pressure and score the winning touchdown in the final moments!
With the win, they jumped up to second place, but would have to win their second Elven game 5-0 to be in with a chance of top spot!
.....they failed.....
But not before getting a couple of consolation touchdowns!

Although they didn’t succeed, it’s as the saying goes- it’s not the winning but the crumping of many many elves that counts!

WAAAAGH!!!

Played a couple of games with me son @FlacK over a weekend in summer. In the spirit of the game: I beat him both times!

Game 1
Iron Bruisers (flack) vs. hellbrass orchids (me)

A 1-0 victory for orchids, scored by a near impossible throw in the very last turn

I think it was a 2-0 victory to the bruisers, but both teams had intimidated the refs so it could have been overruled!?
(Took a while to work out the nuances of the secret weapons, otherwise it probably would have went the other way)

looks great bud!

Did you both have fun playing it? thats the main thing

Also, are you using the latest gw rules (no idea what edition they are up to now), or are you using the classic rules? If the new ones, how are they? I've not played in 4 or 5 years I think so completely missed the revision gw did to the game

to a deplorable casual like me... the first season was the same as LRB which was the same as the gw edition it came from. There were subtle differences but I never played enough to notice.

This latest edition...Season is apparently quite a shake up though.

thanks Spafe! I had a blast, and he was keen on having a second game the next day, so big success!
just playing good ‘ol 90s version, didn’t even read the ’new’ one, just wanted the new board and goodies after playing a game with me durham yak brothers! Don’t like the look of ‘second season’ or most the new teams that come out. Tho wouldn’t mind the champions of death (despite the stuuupid running mummy!)
