Zenobian Zeniths, an all-female FF team


Amazons are great fun to play and deceptively strong, but the choice of miniatures for these teams is relatively limited. And so for the past couple of months, I’ve been working on creating one. I’ve focused on creating a diverse and interesting team which offers something different to what’s already available. Not only are there […]

Purplegoo Plays… German Team Bowl 2018


German Team Bowl 2018 For the second time in 2018, this September I visited lovely Germany to play lovely Blood Bowl. The destination was Cologne in the centre-west of the country, and this time, I was part of a four-man posse contesting the German Team Bowl. Coaches had come from far and wide to compete […]

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 […]

First time Blood Bowling Abroad… and why you need to give it a go too!


Blood Bowl tournaments… They all have little nuances and rules variances to give them something of a USP, but ultimately they’re all pretty much the same aren’t they? So what’s the point in going to the expense of travelling abroad to play with toy soldiers? Surely that’s just an unnecessary expense, right?  WRONG!!!   In […]

Offensive Drive Pt2 – Anti-Blitz


Introduction We all know that feeling. You finally get off work after a long week and arrive bright and early on a Saturday morning to a tournament. This is going to be a great weekend! You’ve said hi to your friends and traded old stories from years gone past. You sit down and get out […]

Purplegoo Plays… Bilbao Teams Cup III


III Bilbali Teams Cup. Memorial Aitor You’ll get used to this logo… In July of 2017, four intrepid English souls took a trip to the Basque country (absolutely not Spain!) to participate in the second Bilbao Teams Cup (BTC). It’s fair to say that it knocked our socks off, and we banged on about it for twelve […]

Offensive Drive Pt1 – Diagonal Blocking


Introduction One of the most interesting parts of the game for me, tactically, are the setups. A lot of this derives from my love of chess and the need to study opening positions. Blood Bowl is a far more complex game than chess (having a far greater number of possible moves multiplied by the random […]

How to make a Sevens Board


Making a Bloodbowl 7s Board Sevens fever seems to be sweeping the country with tournaments and mini leagues popping up all over. So far the only known cure for this epidemic is not having a suitable board to play on, and masking tape just doesn’t cut it. After offering to make some boards for the […]
