Painting Competition Winners!


Hello Blood Bowl fans! Back in the depths of time we announced that we were running a painting competition on our artwork section of this website. We had a fantastic response with the standard of quality just through the roof. I am very happy with my decisions to have five winners and also to pass […]

Zenobian Zeniths – 10th Oct Update


The last sculpt of the team of sixteen is now done, and the 3D print files have been sent to Printmakr, I should receive these early next week.

Offensive Drive Pt3 – Covering Back


A key aspect of the game is momentum. Players who are knocked down cannot hit back, meaning they often stand up and get hit again. Players who are knocked down lose 3 squares of movement meaning that even if they are left free they often cannot get back to defend. You only get one blitz […]

AndyDavo’s guide to Tabletop


    Hello! That man AndyDavo, Dark Elf extraordinaire of Twitch tv superstardom has been rather busy on his YouTube channel recently with some excellent guides. One of the things I really like about his YT and Twitch channel is how he is so free and open with discussing his thought process. It’s one thing […]

Purplegoo Plays… Thrudball 2018


Thrudball 2018 August this year marked my return to sunny Bognor Regis on the south coast of England and to the mighty Thrudball. Like almost no other UK tournament I know of, Thrud holds a special status for a band of dedicated, almost feverish attendees. This army of passionate supporters loves Thrud for three main […]

Running a Tournament


The first time is always nerve-wracking. There are so many questions! When will it happen? Where will we do it? Is size important? Will anybody come? How much will it cost? All understandable concerns of course, but running your first tournament doesn’t have to be stressful. And you don’t need to worry about doing everything […]
