The Lonewolves Challenge Cup started last Wednesday and with a change to this years format it all began with some warm up games.
This season there will be 3 months of warm up games (1 a month) between myself (Skaven), Cortez (Orcs), Lordybloke (Norse) and Cyrus (Necromantic) with Tomarse (Dark Elves) joining us in April for the league proper.
This Wednesday saw defending champion (and 2 time winner) Lordybloke take on me ( 1 time winner) in what turned out to be a very one sided affair. With Lordybloke rolling almost perfect armour rolls and me rolling more 1's than ever before, the Skaven struggled to hold back the torrent of abuse they were getting and it ended in a 4-1 win for the Norse.
With probably a world record amount of SPPs amassed in one game, the Norse Thrower Freykell learnt how to be more accurate, something that will come in useful next month against the Cyrus's Necromantic team.
In the game between the Orcs and the Necromantics, there wasn't too much between the teams, once the Orcs had realised that if they go too near the edge of the pitch they would get pushed off it by the Werewolves. (2 were beaten up by the crowd this way)
Cyrus took a 1-0 lead into the 2nd half and never lost it as the Orcs struggled to get to grips with the ball, time ran out on them just as they were making progress.
Next months its winners vs winners and losers vs losers, but with only SPP's counting for anything its more about getting in some practiceand those new skills prior to the season proper.
