Last night was the final warm up game for Th1rt3en and Black Moon Rising, and what a belter it was!
The Necromantic's received the ball at the start of the 1st half and made a swift run down their right flank, this was blocked by a swift covering move by the Rats causing the ball carrying werewolf to double back to the centre of the field. Here he was set upon by a posse of 3 Gutter Runners who nabbed the ball off him and ran away out of reach to the endzone.
A similar thing happened when the Undead received the ball again and at half time it was 2-0 and the Rats hadn't even received the ball.
The 2nd half started with the Rats missing 2 line-men to injury and a Ghoul was on the sidelines for the Necro's.
2 turns later despite some heavy 2 on 1 marking it was 3-0 as the Skaven went the length of the field for the score with a pass and hand-off affair. B.M.R didnt have the ball for long again after the next kick off as two 1 dice smashes got the ball on the floor again and soon enough it was 4-0.
With only a couple of turns left and no re rolls the Undead made an attempt to salvage some pride but a 1 dice skull left a gaping hole in their defences through which the rats swarmed, taking out the ball carrier and scuttling in for a 5th score.
The Necromantic team didn't play badly and didn't do anything wrong but there isn't a lot you can do when you have the ball in your hands for only a few turns out of the 16 and the Skaven have all the luck.
Only one skill to report, a 3rd gutter runner gained Block even though he rolled 11 which gave the potential of agility 5.
One game left in the warm ups and then the season starts proper. The 1st week of the season sees the same match ups as the last games of the warm ups. Will the Necromantic team be able to get their revenge?
