Rüdiger Rickassel

Humans


I have no idea why Lucy was bumping his head on the table when our draw was announced. Perhaps he remembered some bad experience in Utrecht...
His first Foul was not spotted, but then again the Gays had a deja-vu: The next 2 Fouls were spotted, but Lucy managed to argue the call!
And even worse: The Undead won Get the Ref for the complete second half!
But with some luck the Gays won nevertheless.

Round 1


Holger had not played BB for some years. So I felt obliged to bring him up-to-date with LRB 4 and demonstrated how the KOE Blitz nowadays works. But in serious, he found his way back quite quick, and with a 3:2 win the Skaven didn´t make it easy for my Lizards.

 


Sputnik was using my Khemri minis and they know who painted them. So they let the Gays win...

Round 2


Oliver is playing his Amazon team really efficiently. On the other hand he showed so much respect towards my Lizards that for some turns I wasn´t really aware I was not trying to win but only to get the draw (which I finally even failed).


The Table 1 game against Kithor started with a desaster for him. He lost 2 Skinks before his first Turn which was a big shock for the Lizards. The Skink carrying the ball couldn’t dodge to make the draw. This was the chance for the Gays.

Round 3


There was nothing I could do agains Manuels Woodelves, especially the Skinks could not dodge anywhere. The 0:4 result recommends me to forget about the game quickly.

 


Dwarves! The most feared opponent for my Gays. But against “Glorian Underhill” there were no CAS on both sides! And with a little bit more luck...

Round 4


I wasn´t amused to see Marco presenting Elves again to me, dark ones this time. But they turned out to be not so difficult to handle as the Woodies the day before. Pouring rain troubled both of us; the KO results my Lizards achieved on him particulary troubled Marco.

 


Muadib played his Woodelfs like Dwarfs, always building a Cage. And again with a little more luck...
Towards the end in Turn 7 my Wardancer tried with an awesome action to avoid the winning TD of the “Green War”:
Leap, Dodge, Dodge (4+), Dodge (3+), Dodge, Dodge (4+), GFI, Dodge (5+), GFI, Blitz (2 dice against). With a double Push and StripBall, the ball scattered off the field. After the throw-in 3 Gays could stand around the ball, but Muadib could Block, Blitz and PickUp the ball and score the winning Touchdown.

Round 5


Rüdiger figured out a lot of great moves for his humans, but his dice rolls denied any need for strategy. Maybe the real problem were his humans feeling uneasy on the pitch because they were not properly dressed yet ;-)
