Five Alive O

‘‘Good evening sports fans and welcome to the Lone Wolves
Challenge Cup. Well the crowds may have been disappointing
tonight as they start to wander away from the stadium but we’ve
had some entertaining Blood Bowl this evening and one or two
surprises. So for those of you just in from the local tavern here’s
a few comments from Bob. Over to you Bob Bifford"

“Thanks Jim. Well there was some top class entertainment tonight
but not much was seen on the pitch I don’t know where the
Fangorn Rangers new coach is from but I doubt he’ll last the season
if the fans don’t do something about him the bookies may well do."

"I think you’re right Bob but that’s not the only upset of the night with
both the league favourites, the Clams and the Storm, languishing in mid table mediocrity "

"Well I dare say we’ll see some changes to both those teams next week but
until then Jim I’ll be heading over to the ‘Mummies Fist’ for a few beers with the dodgers”

Lone Wolves Challenge Cup 2010 Week 2 - Results

Week 2 is over and done with, didn't get as much chance to look over all the games so the reports will be short and sweet

Orcland Raiders 1 - 1 Invaders. (Attendance 19,000)

A close fought contest which saw both teams big guys spend a lot of time standing around doing nothing, especially the Chaos Minotaur who spent most of his time in the KO'd box
The latter part of the 2nd half was spent with both teams failing to get a grip on the ball and as time ran out neither team could grab it off the floor.
The final kick of the game was to the Raiderz troll, who had to regenerate to avoid missing a crunch encounter with the Bearded Clams

Fangorn Rangers 3 - 1 Storner Stoneheads (Attendance 7,000)

A poor fan turn out missed a classic as the Rangers grabbed 2 late scores to rack up the biggest amount of TD's in one game so far.
Whilst the game was still 1-1 the Rangers head coach could be seen handing in his P45, but after a big victory he has changed his mind and will be back next week to face the Invaders. One onlooker said that he heard the Elf coach say he'd be on the Wine next week so you better watch out Chaos scum!!

Bearded Clams 2 - 0 Warpstone Wanderers (Attendance 17,000)

The Clams made it look harder than it should have been finally scoring their 2nd late in the game. At half time it looked as if the rats could be in trouble with only 7 players on the pitch against the dwarfs 10.
The 2nd half wasn't all good news for the Wanderers as one of their Gutter Runners was killed and a 2nd TD was scored. As the game ended the rats could only field 4 players, with the rest of their team KO'd or injured.

Saurion Storm 1 - 2 Coffin Dodgers (Attendance 17,000)

A close game saw the Undead pull off a victory which sees them head the table after week 2. After taking the lead the Dodgers were dragged back to 1-1 at the half.
Unphased the Coffin Dodgers managed to score a 2nd against the head to secure a momentous victory.


2 more deaths this week brings the total to 4 in 2 weeks,RIP Roger from the Warpstone Wanderers and Denahi 'Night' Butt of the Invaders

Lone Wolves Challenge Cup 2010 Week 1 - Results

Well after many delays due to snow and ice the 3rd annual challenge cup finally got under way. For the 1st time ever in the history of the league 4 games were happening at the same time. This does make it a little difficult to give full match reports but I'll go with what I heard and saw and make some stuff up.

The Invaders 2 - 1 The Storner Stoneheads. (Attendance 17,000)

The return of the Invaders after their wooden spoon winning performance of challenge cup year one took on the Stoneheads. The Chaos dwarfs were a collection of out of retirement players from the 1st challenge cup winning Purple Helmets and rookies from the minor leagues.
A slow paced match saw Invaders score a late 2nd half touchdown to secure the win. The now unbeaten in 2 games Invaders (last game of season 1 and this game) rejoiced as star Bull Centaur Bishop had his ribs broken by the ferocious Invader fans midway through the 2nd half. Bishop is unlikely to return for next week against the Fangorn Rangers

Warpstone Wanderers 1 - 2 Orcland Raiderz. (Attendance 23,000)

The Rookie Warpstone Wanderers faced off against the Orcland Raiders in a one sided battle. The Orcs took an swift 2-0 lead and racked up the casualties in this brutal affair.
As the Orcs rejoiced knowing they had the rats beaten, something magical happened. Chanting from the terraces the Wanderer fans began to give their team tips on how to score, tactics and special plays. Bemused by the home teams support the Orcs lost their way a little and the Skaven managed to pull one TD back before the Orc head coach managed to get his team's heads back in the game.
Sadly not only did the Wanderers lose their 1st competitive game but they also lost long time fan Ray who was flattened in an Orc sandwich. Amusingly not only did he die in a sandwich this is also where Ray ended up as he became the after match snack for the Raider'z Troll Graz Nullhug

Coffin Dodgers 1 - 0 Fangorn Rangers (Attendance 20,000)

The Coffin Dodgers returned (from the dead?) to their 2nd challenge cup after winning the wooden spoon last year. They took on the newly formed (and newly disbanded?) Fangorn Rangers.
A lot of talk had the Wood Elves favourite and a lot of money had been rumoured to change hands. The Undead had other plans though and with the luck that only witchcraft can grant you proceeded to pound the elves into the dirt.
Fans were left disappointed when the game was abandoned at 1-0 just after the start of the 2nd half as head coach of the Rangers decided that it was better to retreat and lick his teams wounds (not literally) rather than lose more players to the bloodbowl obituaries.
The one bit of good news from the Elf camp was that they had managed to inflict a near career ending injury (smashed collar bone -1 Str) on star Ghoul Gug-Lug. Gug will not be back next week and may find he spends alot more time warming up the bench than playing for the rest of the season.

Saurion Storm 2 - 1 Bearded Clams (Attendance 21,000)

The 2 heavy weights and favourites to take each other on in the final met in the 1st week in what turned out to be a very close and some what nail biting affair.
The 1st half was very tense with both teams taking their time to settle into new season.
The 1st half ended goal less but the Clams were a few men down. Notorious Slayer Bori, bought it at the hands of the Storms stalwart Kroxigor and star blitzer Kili was sent off for fouling.
The foul was not all for nothing as it did briefly end the life of a Saurian skink, only for him to be revived by the team medic.
The 2nd half saw all the action, the Dwarfs scored early on with a long run from Fili but the Storm quickly replied with a swift skink combination.
The game looked to be going to a draw with 2 turns remaining but after blitz and a unbelievable dodge from a Saurus the Storm managed a last turn TD to win the game.

Slayer Bori - Bearded Clams
Lineman Ray - Warpstone Wanderers

Week one league

Right it's gotta be done, it's the word we all want to hear but no one else in the gaming community seems to know of.



The quest is on to get it out there in the gaming world, this is our post to show the world we thought of it first.

We have a good start from Mr O'Neill with the first post on Tau (something or other) so where else can we get it.

A Storm is Brewing

"Well sports fans, this years Lizard entry has just arrived for the 2010 Lone Wolves Tournament. Posing for fans and media alike outside the press conference, they certainly look eager and ready for the challenge. Good job too as they'll be facing off against the dwarves in the first round"

"Yes Jim, they'll need all the luck they can get to get through the first round unscathed but if they don't, at least McMurty's will have a plentiful supply for their Skink on a Stick special..mmm, I'm off to get one."

Ging Gang...

....ghoulies! For Bloodbowl.
Heresy ghouls with weapons cut off and pads added, although the one on the left is a "Deathball" ghoul so no work needed on him!
Ended up a little "purpler" than I had planned and got a bit fed up with them but they'll do!!
Also knocked up a turn and score counter.

Fangorn Rangers

Finished in time for the start of the Lone Wolves Challenge Cup League, I present the Fangorn Rangers; for what will be their first and probably last entry into this annual event.  No doubt these little beggers will be on eBay before the ink of the winning team is dry on trophy.
