Hello! Time for me to build a new project, this year I planned to realize a “Hobby phantasm” of mine, collect and paint a Nippon Army for WHB. For once no Citadel miniatures in my project, I fell for another venerable old school miniatures range from the 70’s… Dixon Miniatures.

Some illustrations of Adrian from Slaves to Darkness, these illustrations was my first step to understanding the Chaos concept. In early 90’s I was too young to translate the English texts, so, I built my own definition of Chaos with the Adrian illustrations. So much good memories.

Painted gaming table, miniatures and a worked scenario managed by a GM are the base for a good game. But, to increase the sport/stadium/supporters ambiance, I bought some accessories to transform my classic players into crazy Blood Bowl supporters. These colored hats are cheap, 4 hats 10€ on ebay, free shipping. Simple, funny and very effective to create an ambiance around the gaming table.
1° All troops are skirmisher on the stadium stands, they automatically reform in rank and files units when they penetrate on the pitch.
2° The pitch is separated from the Stadium Stand by a fence chain link. The supporters must charge and destroy the fence to penetrate on the pitch. All attacks Hit automatically, fence have T5 and W4, 6 or 8 function of the size of the fence section.
3° Skaven and Goblin races have low “Cool” value. So, Panic test can rapidly transform your fearsome horde of crazy supporters in a routed crowd. To avoid this kind of tragic incident, I created the “Supporters song”. Every times a player fail a psychology test, he can roar a “supporter song” to automatically pass the test. Both teams can sing no more than 3 “supporters song” during the game.
4° The Ogre Star Player can catch every goblin supporters and throw it. Range : 9” , 1D6 Hit, S4 and armor save permitted.
Battle report :
|We are in the Groenwald Blood Bowl arena and the match oppose the Orcland Raiders to The Fearsome Ratskins. Stadium stand are full of furious supporters and both teams are waiting in their half|
|The Orcland Raiders|

|In the center of the pitch, the Dwarf referee flip a coin to decide which team chooses to kick-off or receive the ball. At this moment, a wad of cash falls on the ground directly from the pocket of the referee... Corruption !!!|
|Supporters are out of Contrôl, they destroy the fence chain link, It's a pitch INVASION|
|Ratskins supporters penetrate first on the pitch, a fire thrower join them but not for a long time. The light weapon team fail a fear test when the Ogre charge them!!|
|Gutter Runners can climb the fence chain link, they're now in position to charge the Goblin archers|
|On the other side the Skaven Slaves charge the second unit of goblin archer. Bad news for them, this unit host a Ball and chain loony!! The Goblin Overlord and his unit enter on the pitch!|

|The Orcland Raiders members team slain the last Ratskins, the pump wagon stay far from the Giant referee. The skaven Warlord advance to take position in the Raiders Stand.|
|Last combined charge of the Raiders! The pump Wagon croos all the ranks of the Skaven unit. Their warlord is too far... They rout !! Orcland Raiders Victory!!|
As you can imagine, after 4 months of hard work to create and paint all the stuffs needed for this scenario. I was very excited to play it J I keep in my mind many good memories. No winners or losers here, only funny and unforgettable memories for all the partners who joint the games!!

Last words :
Here the supporters songs I created. Some of them are inspired by real French soccer supporters song. After several beers… A real pleasure to roar these songs J
Raiders songs :
-Ratskins, Ratskins on t’encule (x2)!!! Inspired by the famous rivality OM vs PSG
-Won ‘est les meilleurs, won’est les meilleurs¸ , won’est (x3) les meilleurs !!! Own creation.
Ratskins songs :
-Qui ne saute pas n’est pas Ratskins, hé !!! OM supporters song
-Si t’es fiert d’etre un Ratskins tape un Gobelin, Si t’es fiert d’etre un Ratskins tape sur un Nain, Si t’es fiert d’etre un Ratskins (x3)tape sur quelqu’un !!! Own creation, on the rhythm of « elle descend de la montage »
