    WHFB Scenario : Pitch invasion (Last part)

    To begin this final part I want to thank all the partners who join me during the several games I organized. I played most of the time as Game Master (GM) and I took a lot of pleasure to play with you! Thank you All!

    I played the last game during the French Oldhammer Day (Metz) last week, JB Asslessman and Patatovitch work hard to prepare pictures report of the week end (Links coming soon) 

    Stadium ambiance:

    Painted gaming table, miniatures and a worked scenario managed by a GM are the base for a good game. But, to increase the sport/stadium/supporters ambiance, I bought some accessories to transform my classic players into crazy Blood Bowl supporters. These colored hats are cheap, 4 hats 10€ on ebay, free shipping. Simple, funny and very effective to create an ambiance around the gaming table. 

    I improved this accessories art during this last game I played, by dressing me into a "real" BloodBowl referee, enjoy the facial injuries. Thanks to the local US football club “Les Artilleurs de Metz” for lent me the referee cloth.

    Specials rules:

    1° All troops are skirmisher on the stadium stands, they automatically reform in rank and files units when they penetrate on the pitch.

    2° The pitch is separated from the Stadium Stand by a fence chain link. The supporters must charge and destroy the fence to penetrate on the pitch. All attacks Hit automatically, fence have T5 and W4, 6 or 8 function of the size of the fence section.

    3° Skaven and Goblin races have low “Cool” value. So, Panic test can rapidly transform your fearsome horde of crazy supporters in a routed crowd. To avoid this kind of tragic incident, I created the “Supporters song”. Every times a player fail a psychology test, he can roar a “supporter song” to automatically pass the test. Both teams can sing no more than 3 “supporters song” during the game.

    4° The Ogre Star Player can catch every goblin supporters and throw it. Range : 9” , 1D6 Hit, S4 and armor save permitted.

    Battle report :

    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 both teams are waiting in their half

    The Orcland Raiders
    The Fearsome Ratskins
    In the center of the pitch,  the Dwarf 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... Corruption !!!

    Supporters are out of Contrôl, they destroy the fence chain link, It's a pitch INVASION
    Ratskins supporters penetrate first on the pitch, a fire thrower join them but not for a long time. The light weapon team fail a fear test when the Ogre charge them!!
    Gutter Runners can climb the fence chain link, they're now in position to charge the Goblin archers

    On the other side the Skaven Slaves charge the second unit of goblin archer. Bad news for them, this unit host a Ball and chain loony!! The Goblin Overlord and his unit enter on the pitch!
    Skaven Slaves routed, some Globadier get out of the locker room. The Orcland Star player charge the Rat Ogre with his chainsaw and cut the beast in 2 pieces!
    A ferocious combat between the Skaven Lord and his retinue against the Ogre. The Skaven unit is crossed by another Fanatic but only one Chaos Rat was slaughtered. The Ratskin team charge the Orcland raiders.
    The locker room doors of the Raiders explode, the bavre Snotlings finally find the way to build their pump wagon !! At the same moment, Galak Starscrapper enter in the Stadium. He's ready to avenge his referee partners
    The Orcland Raiders members team slain the last Ratskins, the pump wagon stay far from the Giant referee. The skaven Warlord advance to take position in the Raiders Stand.
    Last combined charge of the Raiders! The pump Wagon croos all the ranks of the Skaven unit. Their warlord is too far... They rout !! Orcland Raiders Victory!!

    Conclusion :

    As you can imagine, after 4 months of hard work to create and paint all the stuffs needed for this scenario. I was very excited to play it J I keep in my mind many good memories. No winners or losers here, only funny and unforgettable memories for all the partners who joint the games!!

    Last words :

    Here the supporters songs I created. Some of them are inspired by real French soccer supporters song. After several beers… A real pleasure to roar these songs J
    Raiders songs :
    -Ratskins, Ratskins on t’encule  (x2)!!! Inspired by the famous rivality OM vs PSG
    -Won ‘est les meilleurs, won’est les meilleurs¸ , won’est (x3) les meilleurs !!! Own creation.
    Ratskins songs :
    -Qui ne saute pas n’est pas Ratskins, hé !!! OM supporters song
    -Si t’es fiert d’etre un Ratskins tape un Gobelin, Si t’es fiert d’etre un Ratskins tape sur un Nain, Si t’es fiert d’etre un Ratskins (x3)tape sur quelqu’un !!! Own creation, on the rhythm of « elle descend de la montage »
