I would volunteer but sadly I won't have a lot of spare time this week and I'm already subbing for the DoD.
It's us this week. My wife presented me with a daughter earlier today, so my play time may be somewhat restricted. A good time at the moment might be Thursday evening, say at 8pm. Would that suit you? I'll confirm later in the week, but otherwise and in general if you could give me a menu of possible times that would be good.
Many congratulations chap!
Thanks. She's asleep now...
Also: Jiiiim! When would you like our next to each other in the table clash to happen? I could do the days given above. Post first to reserve your slot!
Hello the brain! let me know when you would like to play, should be fairly free most of the week
Thursday evening is probably the best for me as I'm away this weekend. If not then, I can probably do most week nights next week.
Hello Drawlien. Friday normally has things so I'll nab Saturday.
Aim: don't lose 3-0 again.
Screwie's chaos handed my rats a by-the-numbers cage up and 2-1 grind beating. I didn't really turn up. I think I was a bit distracted by work stuff, but for whatever reason my head just wasn't in the game.
Quite Nice White Mice (Ska, President Weasel) vs Sinister Sixteen (Cha, me)
Not a lot to write home on for this one. We were all tied in TV before I hired a minotaur and PW hired a thrower pre-game, so he had 80k to spend on a Babe and that was all.
PW chose to receive first and scored in typical lightning fast skaven-y fashion, but that gave me most of the first half to grind out an equaliser - which I did - and the second half to grind out a winning TD - which I did.
Weasel didn't have the ST or the Guard to break up my cages, despite some excellent blitzing tactics from his Rat-Ogre, but on the other hand my guys couldn't cause any injuries to stick. 1 Cas the whole game, and a handful of KOs. Fortunately, with the amount of Grab and Tackle I have, I can get by without eliminations.
I feel pretty bad about delaying the final TD to turn 16, but these are skaven and I needed the win.
Final Score: 2 - 1 to the Sinister ones
A handful of KOs? You must have Big Hand, have you been putting warpstone on your cornflakes?
There were either 4 or 5 rats on the pitch at the end. I think I had a blitzer, a thrower, a lineman and a rat ogre, which makes a nice set at least.
One rat was still KO'd from the first half but I had spare players so started with 11; with one injury that leaves 5 or 6 KO'd rats.
I was lucky not to get more injuries rather than KOs, but at the same time a little unlucky to get so many armour breaks when you didn't bring very many mighty blow guys, and they weren't the same guys who had tackle.
Hmm, I only remember that before your set up for the Turn 16 one-turn drive, five rats were in the KO box (and they all woke up, which was nice). In the drive before I shoved at least one more off the field, but there were more who were only prone and pinned against the edge of the pitch. One of those was a gutter runner for sure.
Anyway, isn't five a handful?
I did in fact field a Block/Tackle/Mighty Blow beastman, thank you very much! :) He really underperformed in breaking armour though, with some dreadful rolls. Currently my only other Mighty Blow source is the rookie minotaur, so yes I do need some more of that.
Also quite chuffed with my W/D/L standing of 4/1/5, not bad. Maybe I'll have won more games than I've lost by the end!
And we - well, PW and myself, and Laneford - are now officially halfway through the season! (Also, we're all tied on 13 points, coincidentally.)
I really cannot believe how long this season is.
'Hands: Sunday any good for you? 16:00 would be ideal but loads of flexibility at the moment. Will have some family stuff to arrange soonish though.
Yeah, that should be fine 'aster.
Oh it's moved on again. And it's... Grinn! After 6pm GMT in the week, most times at the weekend, or indeed most times next week as I'm off work.
