I find your lack of daemonic face.....disturbing. :twisted:

Meanwhile I've read the links with interest. I'll be honest, I never got into bloodbowl in the first place, so this has little chance of grabbing me.

I think KMB's just annoyed that no one will play KoW with him.

The DB web site launched today: http://www.dreadball.com/

It's a shame I can't make October as I could have probably have bought a demo set for anyone interested in it.

On the chance anyone is interested or sitting on the fence with DreadBall (and I'm hoping I don't get shouted at for posting about it :) ), the kickstarter ends on Sunday if you want a ton of free stuff.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/174 ... ports-game

Kickstarter pages by the end of the run tend to be a huge wall of text and pictures so here's a thread detailing what you get at the various pledge levels.

Striker! is the best deal - over $400 worth of stuff at the moment for $150 pledge. That's what I'm getting :)

Striker seems like a sweet deal, glad I got in on that early. I may have increased my pledge to get a load more stuff too...

Played 6 turns of it at the Mantic Open Day today..... Phil beat me 5-4 (I got 2 2 point scores, he got a 4 and a 1 point score). If you've played a lot of Blood Bowl then the speed with which things can change, and the hex squares (increases the threat directions/flexibility) will catch you out the first time.

I'm up to $350, purely on the strength of the hearsay and what I've seen. Need to work out what I actually want, but that coach shirt is nice...

I think everyone I took through the game was amazed at the speed of the game.

Thats right Ted, but you know some neighsayers out there , those odd one or two people think its only faster and betterer, but whats even more impressive is its resilience.. we poured 20 whole litres of water over those miniatures.. and NOT ONE ( not one tim?) Not one melted,I know I know right.. I couldn't believe such technology even existed yet.
Wow.. I've got to say.. never has there been a more impressive deal on the table.. and you know folks I can't stop that clock ticking.. right now this $5000 dollar set of steak knives.. pure diamontium.. for only 450.99
Barely even lurking..
