The Bloodbowl League. WYBBL or the West Yorkshire Blood Bowl League

The Bloodbowl League.Some players started a revival at the club of this popular game. If you are interested bring your team along on a Thursday or arrange a game on our facebook group. Now a League has been set up.15095697_1703934666587445_8210434540151387162_n

Blood Bowl is a Fantasy Football game created by Jervis Johnson for the British games company Games Workshop (but now under the aegis of their Specialist Games division) as a parody of American Football.[1] The game was first released in 1987 and has been re-released in new editions since. Blood Bowl is set in an alternate version of the Warhammer Fantasy setting, populated by traditional fantasy elements such as human warriors, goblins, dwarves, elves, orcs and trolls. I don’t know who posted this up on Wikipedia but two players had a game last week. A revival as it has often been played at the Headingley Games Club. WYBBL or the West Yorkshire Blood Bowl League is the name for our local league. In essence, we are a group within the local gaming clubs community (we also occasionally play at the Airebourgh gaming club) that specifically cater to Blood Bowl (this ensures we don’t swamp this group with constant Blood Bowl banter). We also run tournaments (our next one being at the 5th Meanwood games day in January)

DBMM-De Bellis Magistrorum Militus 15mm Patrician Romans poncing about before collapsing.

DBMM-De Bellis Magistrorum Militus 15mm  Patrician Romans poncing about before collapsing – back to the drawing board. The armies in the Patrician Roman list cover the period from the rise to power of Aetius as Patrician in the West to the overthrow of the Italian Kingdom of the general Odoacer by the Ostrogoths in the West and the accession of Zeno in the East

Last Thursday’s game of DBMM was about to end for the Romans. dbm We still have a substantial team of 15mm ancients players who follow the family of games of De Bellis Magistrorum Militus or DBMM II. It all started long ago with the brilliant De Bellis Antiquitatis (DBA) Ancients Wargame Rules 1.1 and then came the evolution……of Wargames of ancient battles 3000BC to 1550 AD. Dacians with Sarmatian allies march out against another army…lots of light horse
