12 games of Christmas blow out pt.1

Happy new year one and all.

Nope I'm not dead and my dance card has been fully stacked over the Christmas break.

Strap in for the 2019 / 2020 12 games of Christmas.

The series kicked off with the usual Saturday night fights at my place.

This would first see Shaggy take on Lee.

Lee reached for his favourites (the ghouls) while Shaggy reached for the new Snarl fangs.

The Snarl fangs were straight on the offensive.

This saw Shaggy Smash Lee 17 glory to 7!!

Lee had to have his revenge!

Game two and Lee focuses down on the Snarl Fangs.

Lee also uses the board to his advantage to stop the Snarl fangs surging into his board.

This sees Lee slaughter the Snarl fangs and take the second game.

Got to love these new starter decks!!

Game three was the 'Ur-predator' version of the game printed in the November issue of White Dwarf.

It's a multi player version of the game with the winner being the player to have one of their warband possessed by the spirit of the 'Ur-Predator' by the end.

 The crits flew thick and fast as all the warbands desperately tried to claim the first kill.

Shaggy claims the first kill and then has to play a game of cat and mouse as he has to attack with the possessed figure without having it slain.

Despite my scoring the most glory Shaggy ends up with the possessed figure and therefore wins the game.

It's a great little variation on the original multi player game and fully recommended.

In honour of the Snarl fang win I managed to get one finished up.

This would turn out ot be the only painting of the entire holiday.

Christmas morning I did very well!

These will come in useful for Riotville LIVE! 2020.

I also got what would turn out to be the hit of the Christmas holiday. . . . . . .

This proved to be an immediate hit with the kids who loved out playing the wife and I (and everyone else it turned out!!!!).

Boxing day I also did very well via 'Secret Santa'!


This segwayed nicely into my brother and I playing our traditional game of Blood Bowl 'El-Smashico'.

Once again (for 30 years running!) it would be Humans against Orks!.

Turn one and I receive the kick off. . . . . .

  . . . . . and surge up field.

But the humans stand firm . . . .

 . . . . Before stripping the Orks of the ball and kicking it back over the top.

This sees a foot race for the ball  and the humans scoring just before the half time whistle blows.

The second half sees the Humans receive the kick off.

The Orks come crashing in desperate to win the ball back . . .


Despite the carnage in the centre . . . . . .

 . . . . . and the humans dropping the ball . . . . . . .

. . . . . the humans regain the ball . . . . . . .

. . . . . once again kicking it over the top . . . . .

 . . . . . Where once again the humans win the footrace and score to take the victory 2 - nil!

Once the dust had settled (and I had finished sulking) we cleared the table and set up for 'Zombies'.

The action was frantic with many shenanigans pulled. . . . .

. . . . . .  my wife finally made it to the helipad and safety.

"Get to the Chopper!"

This left us just enough time to pull out 'Dungeon Mayhem' before bed time.

This saw the wife and my kids kick the stuffing out of me before I even got the chance to lay a card!!

With my early exit I had time to go on eBay and buy the expansion set.

And there ends part one.

5 games in and a ton still to go!
