    Dwarfs have better skills (and consequently a shorter, less crowded skill wishlist) but Chaos have better baseline stats. Not only are they obviously stronger, they are just fast enough and just agile enough to do something unexpected. Personally, I have more fun with Chaos.

    Chaos Dwarfs are fun, but too specialised in the wrong ways to fit my idea.

    Sketch I can do, um, any time on Friday or Sunday, or Saturday evening after maybe 6pm. Failing that, next week I shan't be free until 8pm at the earliest I guess.

    Are you still thinking of doing this, NieA7?

    Elves.
    It was somewhat horrendous.

    I went for the devious plan of passing every roll.

    Weasel countered by choosing to just fail all of his.

    Suddenly, it was 3-0, with me kicking off three times.

    Clearly my elves had been praying to nuffle in their sabbatical.

    2nd half was inconsequential tit for tat biffing and insults seperated by equally inconsequential scores.

    I realise this looks like a haiku,

    But trust me.

    It isn't.

    I am, though it depends on getting enough games in before hand to level up the team a bit (I'm no Zoraster with inducements unfortunately). Given I'm pretty poor at that sort of forward planning you're more than welcome to the other Nurgle slot if you want it.

    I'm usually happy to play Challenge matches. Just Steam me.

    I have been levelling a Nurgle team and got it to 1500 TV or thereabouts.

    Look, there's plenty of time before the season finishes, I've lots of time to build another team. I'd like to play Khorne *cough*, but anything bashy would be good, so maybe Khemri, Lizards or Dwarves. You work on your nurgle and I'll pick something else.

    EDIT - Maybe I'll bring my humans across from the Challenge league...

    I am doing warehouse shifts at a well-known internet retailer (that rhymes with bam-a-zon) for three weeks before Christmas; unfortunately, I'm doing the late shift from 4pm until midnight every day. Effectively I'm working from about three in the afternoon until one in the morning. On my next two days off I have commitments in London that I can't break - that's Saturday 8th and 15th.

    So unless people can do their games in the mornings, I think I'm going to have to concede.

    At one point I actually shouted "oh COME ON!" at the screen, John McEnroe style. That was the first ridiculous elfing I took.

    My flings lost 3-0 to Jolima's blasted elves last night.

    Two snakeyes on the first two turns dropped me right in it and I trailed 1-0 at half time. I kicked off and had a (small) chance to equalise but made a stupid mistake and the chance was gone. 2-0. Then he scored again. 3-0. Then I killed one of his blitzers! But the apo saved him (boo!). Then the consolation TTM attempt failed.

    Bah.

    You wait until next season Jolima! I'll be back!

    There are too many ridiculous elf teams in the Open. Jolima. mrpier. Laneford. Corkir.

    Non elf coaches - I hereby declare that next season I will be running an elven executioner competition. I will award points for elf kills or permanent injuries (fouls are acceptable, as are wizards). You have until the end of the season to obtain the appropriate skills, and then we'll start.

    EDIT - Any non-elf AG4 player with dodge, or any other blodger will count as half an elf for these purposes.

    Now that's fighting talk. Desperate, but fighting talk nonetheless ;).

    Do we still get points if the elf got hurt by failing a dodge of GFI roll (the demise of many a super elf)?

    No. You have to pull the trigger. Full rules to come when I've thought of them.
