Tonight sees the first outing for my inaugural Blood Bowl team the Ellyrion Raiders. Last season I took over the Caretaker role of Andy's Orks. I had my last game on Thursday again not winning but scoring and getting 3 casualties which took my Casualty count up to 10 for 6 games which is more than anyone else who has played a similar number to me.
This season I'm taking control of a high elf team so a different proposition altogether. I've painted my first model but I'm not wholly happy with the colour scheme of Red and Silver so a little research perhaps into American football team colours is needed.
The problem I had with the Orks certainly came down to scoring. When ever I got into the position to score I didn't have the legs to take me over the line.
I'm starting off with all the models from the box so I have
2 Catchers and 7 Linemen.
This leaves me with only 2 rerolls which is a scary concept because when I was playing with Orks I often had 4 and always three.
Look out tomorrow for a game report after I have faced my first opponent (the only person playing with less experience than me)
