Hi, today a
special WHFB scenario largely inspired by an article published in 1988 in “Le
Hérault Citadel N°5”, a French magazine edited by Agmat France who translated many
texts from Games Workshop publications (more information about Agmat here)
original scenario is written like a dialog with two sport speakers who describe
the situation in a Blood Bowl stadium, it really funny but It’s too long for me
to translate it (sorry). In summary I purpose you my own version.
We are in the
Groenwald Blood Bowl arena and the match oppose the Orcland Raiders to The
Fearsome Ratskins. Stadium stand are full of furious supporters and players are
waiting in their half. In the center of the pitch, one player of both team and the
referee flip a coin to decide which team chooses to
kick-off or receive the ball. At this moment, a wad of cash falls on the ground
directly from the pocket of the referee… After a brief moment of silence in the
stadium, a fight breaks out between the two players, accusing each other of
referee corruption!! Pressure go’s up in the stands and the supporters of each
team get out of control! The fence chainlink around the pitch it violently
destroys by the supporters!! Ho my god … PITCH INVASION!!
scenario is played only in the stadium, it’s a medium surface 75x100cm. So, both
factions are smaller than classic armies. Around 60 miniatures by faction, 10
or 12 soldiers by unit. A GM is highly recommended to manage the hided troops in
armies, special events and other non-players troops. Lockers can hides some
troops of courses and the fence chain-links have some wounds and toughness
skill. Ranked units can be formed only on the pitch and when you move on the
stadium stand you automatically loose the base to base contact but all units
gain the special troop type: Scout.
is the central part of the scenario it’s an unusual gaming table and the best
advantage is you have only one scenery to build… But I didn’t want the spend lot
of time on. I used my Astrogranite pitch and I managed to create the stand with the less paint job as possible. The
principal technic I used is based on glued paper sheets on polystyrene. I
created Wood and stone printed sheets with Townscape (pdf) samples I duplicated (here and here).
I find some fake Blood Bowl sponsors on web (here and here), I glued them like wood sheets on 2mm
cardboard.Last element is the fence
chain-link, I bought this mdf kit here.
That's all for the first part, next
parts, I will develop and show you the two factions of supporters!
