Division H inaugural match:
Jolima's Nurglemans versus President Weasel's Chaosmans
Here is how the game went.
I started the game with a couple of chaosmans (including one of my four chaos warriors) in the infirmary after their rough handling in the final match of last season. With only ten on the roster for the match I get a replacement, no levels, loner beastman. Who has loner. That part becomes important in a little bit.
I kick off, Jolima melees my chaos warriors on the line. I melee back, knock his beast over, foul it with three assists, and Badly Hurt it out of the match. Lucky!
One of my level 3 beastmen is immediately hauled off by the annoyingly eagle-eyed ref for the foul, but I am still feeling pretty good about getting rid of the Beast - my Str 5 chaos warrior is now the strongest piece on the pitch.
Jolima punches through my line and cages in my half, but one of his cage corners is in base contact with one of my men. I start a chain of blocks designed to make a hole (although even as I do I am thinking I've screwed up the position and might not be able to get the hit on the ball carrier). The first hit turns up Skull, both down. I look at the player and realise it is the loner, who doesn't have block. I reroll, and he loners it. Turnover, and Jolima is free to gambol away down the pitch for an inevitable touchdown.
On my way to an equaliser I throw a long pass right over the line of anti-pass aura players but Jolima catches up with the ball carrier and knocks the ball down. I get an improbably series of successful die rolls to get the ball back, get my player away from his, and make several dodges to run players up to cover his players, and then foolishly decide to taunt Jolima about this by saying:
NUFFLE LIKES ME BETTER THAN YOU, LA LA LA.
This, in retrospect, may have been a mistake. Nuffle allows me the touchdown to equalise at 1-1 but in the second half, when I am supposed to be recieving and scoring the winning touchdown, my ag4 players cannot make a simple 4+ pass with reroll and instead spill the ball, twice, in extremely helpful positions - for Jolima.
The game finishes 3-1.
In the last turn I claim Nuffle must be French because he has the same slapstick sense of humour as Jerry Lewis and only the French like him. In retrospect this may have been a mistake - my block dice immediately turns up double skulls, I don't even get the satisfaction of getting a last few hits in, and the game ends.
