On a whim I've decided to enter Spiky Clubs yearly Blood Bowl tournament...6 games over 2 days.
After literally minutes of deliberation I have decided to play a Halfling team.They are universally pants, though can field 2 treemen, however it gives me the great excuse of saying "but I'm playing halflings!" when I lose all my games.It's important to plan ahead for these things. My game tactics will almost entirely revolve around lobbing halfings towards the endzone, and sort of hoping they have the ball...
My challenge will be to get the team painted by the 9th October...I've just ordered them now, and can expect to receive the package of comedy midgets sometime next week. By then I will have needed to decide on;
1) A team name. Recommendations welcome...tradition dictates that halfling teams are named after foodstuffs and generally food/drink related matters. My current favourite is "The Halfpint Bar Stewards", though something based around Fudge-Packing may also be suitable...
Current name options;
1) Gloriole Fudge-Stackers
2) Halfpint Bar-Stewards
2) A colour scheme. I shall limit myself to army painter core colours...tempted by Greenskin or Demonic Yellow...after all this is a professional sportsteam...they should be garish!
I should be able to rattle off a team fairly quickly...2 treemen will take an evening or 2, and the 14 halflings the same. Basing will take an evening in total if I take my time.
I also need to source some game basics...block dice, scatter templates and a range ruler...I suspect this will be eBayable stuffage.
