Malmö Bloodbowl Masters 2013

All right now! It's almost time for Malmö Bloodbowl Masters 2013 which is held this forthcoming weekend in the town of Malmö, Sweden (as the title suggests). I will travel together with Lasse from TRC and we'll try to teach them Swedes a thing or two about the art of blocking! Or something...

It's actually going to be my first NAF sanctioned tourney ever - well, I participated in a couple of tourneys 9 or 10 years ago but I only recently became a member of NAF - and I'm looking SOOOO much forward to it.

Over the last few months I've really re-discovered my lust for Blood Bowl and I've painted quite a few teams to a reasonably high standard (if I do say so myself). Okay, it's not GW quality but it's tabletop quality and it's good enough for me - actually I love my minis but don't tell anyone, okay?

I still have a few unpainted teams hiding in the drawers (Chaos, Dark Elves, Nurgle and Wood Elves) but for this tourney I of course wanted to bring one of the painted ones. That goes without saying. And so the first decision I had to make was to decide which of the following teams I wanted to use for my NAF debut:
Amazon, Chaos Dwarf, Dwarf, Halfling, Human, Norse or Undead.

I've always loved playing Chaos Dwarfs but when I realised that Lasse wanted to play them, I quickly ruled them out. It's been quite some time since I've played Undead but back in the days I really enjoyed them and I think I've re-painted them using a very nice colorscheme.

I then read through the specific rules for this tourney and decided which skill-up's to take. Actually I'm not completely satisfied with the build yet but I'm getting close. Also I'm waiting for some nice number templates to arrive but even if they don't get here in time it should be okay for this tourney.

I'll post some pics, matchreports etc. along the way but for now there's nothing much left to do than relax, get in the Blood Bowl mood and wait for saturday morning to arrive... Cheers!
