Chaos Cup - Game 4

Game four was on table 19 vs Bobby and another Orc team, but at least it was a very different build from my previous opponent. His team was called Cyzygystic Disaster. Great feature about this game was getting to play on the custom Chaos Cup 2011 pitch - cool!!

Here's his roster.

2 Blitzers w Tackle
2 Blitzers w Strip Ball
2 Black Orcs w Block
Troll w Guard
2 Lineorcs
Goblin w Sure Feet
Thrower w Leader
2 Rerolls

As with all the other game reports here's my tweets/photos from game four. Game ended as a 1-1 draw, 0-1 CAS, garnering 30 tournament points.

PS. I googled Bobby's team name to try and figure out what Cyzygystic means. There was only one result, the 2009 Chaos Cup results, where Bobby placed last! He's obviously much improved, well done Bobby! (remembering your skills is a great start, hehe)

Quickly had Piling On mummy and Guard wight KO'd so went for the quick score and pulled it off with no rerolls.

Managed to knock the ball free but failed a 4+ pass leaving the ball in the open.

Mummy CATCHES the bouncing ball! #WHUTUPSHUN

Then I was a gentleman and pointed out his Blitzer has strip ball so even the push on mummy knocked the ball loose. ** He later told me afterwards about him paying it forward when he taught a 13 year old how he could pull off a 1TT - how's that for showing how great this game and its players are! **

Two die uphill block to take down the thrower, double chop block = win!

Orcs tie it up pretty early in the second half, five turns to take the lead again.

Then my sure hands ghoul fails a go for it w reroll, dropping the ball and killing himself in the process :-@

I will post my day two games and the youtube clip of the awards tomorrow!

That board looks totally sweet!

Totally, wait til you see what I pulled off in game 6, only to fail a 3+ dodge w dodge skill next. LOL

Sweet looking pitch, and tough luck on the failed go-for-it, that's how my Ogre died recently.

I've now lost count of how many times I've failed Vamp Bloodlust, and then failed again on a re-roll. You only need a 2+ for Nuffe's sake!

Mik- that totally sucks dude. Sympathies to your team!

Interesting read on Bloodbowl as not played it for many moons due to the league folding after random rule changes.

Were the boards made specifically for the "Chaos Cup" or is it an alternative board you stuck a stick on?

Tristan said...

They were specifically made. There were 20 made and they were $60 each. Pre-registration folks got first dibs and they went like hot cakes.

Here's the thread about them.
