Today my son Lachlann smashed the local Warhammer store in Penrith armed with his birthday money. He has been asking to help him learn to paint and having nothing on today we sat down for some father and son time. He has started an Ultramarines Army for 8th edition and they are coming along well. I finally got around to starting my Space Wolves Dreadnought and some Skavenblight Scramblers for the next Blood Bowl game. I had an awesome day and loved introducing another generation to the games I love. My daughter has also been painting with her boyfriend have they have just discovered Warhammer as well they are doing Necrons and a hybred Dark Angels sort of thing the traitors ☺. All in all a great day.

Preparations for game 2 continue. Painting for the Dwarf Anvils are finished all 12 done. However cannot take photo's of them at the moment as my phone has died but will be taking photo's as soon as possible. The Skavenblight Scramblers are coming along well with 2 figures already painted and we have a hobby day tomorrow thanks to the release of the 8th Edition of 40k. Will be teaching my son to paint Ultramarines after soccer, I hope he enjoys it and sticks at it. Looking forward to it. Will have photo's of the Dwarf Anvils and my son's first Marines.

Welcome back sports fans we are moments away from the kick off and I for one am really looking forward to it. What about you Bob are you ready for the new season?
Yes I am ready I am more excited than a halfling at an all you can eat buffet Jim. Looking now I see the teams having the usual team photo and they both look ready for the game Jim.
Even now the captains are making their way to the middle of the pitch for the coin toss. I hear the coin is a special edition coin struck just for this occasion Bob.
I hear hear it is worth more than some teams Jim and may prove tempting to the goblin fans to make a disappearance.
The coin is tossed in the air and the Bright Crusaders captain Mortiz Doememann calls heads. Its heads and the Crusaders elect to receive the ball. Gouged Eye captain Daffarg Naffwart looks happy with that decision by the Crusaders and even happier with his new shiny coin. So while we wait for the Referee to be stretchered of we can tell you that it is perfect Blood Bowl weather today and 19000 fans are waiting to get it underway Bob.
19000 fans Jim? 11000 here for the Eye by the looks of it Jim.
The ball is ready and Nazeg Goburty kicks it long toward the Crusaders left hand side line. The ball sails threw the air and looks to be coming down in bounds.
Jim look over towards the other side of the pitch, it looks like these sets of fans cannot take the excitment anymore and a riot has broken out already in the stands.
Well that didn't take long Bob the first kick off and we have to wait even longer for some play as the official's sort out this mess and clear the bodies.
Well it was to much for some for the return of the NAF Jim. Good to see that is why Blood Bowl fans are the most passonate in the world, excellent team spirit Jim.
Well mean while the ball lands and the Crusaders are pushing up the left side of their pitch. Doememann has it and is harder to catch than a dwarf with a pot of gold. He makes his way through the defence and looks set to score. He puts extra effort into his running and falls over Bob! He looked set to score there, buts goes down, if the Crusaders are quick they can still come back from this and open the scoring.
The Eye are trying to pull back some defenders Jim put they look like they should of put some more time into conditioning to get quicker. What do you think Jim.
Conditioning is never a problem Bob when you are dead but if Doememann isn't quick enough he may get caught and be making an appearance with the Champions of Death next time. He gets to his feet and picks up the ball and heads to the endzone and SCORES Bob, the first score goes to the Bright Crusaders and their captain Doememann. 1 nil to the Crusaders Bob.

Hi Bob and our viewers of this the pre match show of a cracking and tasty first round match up between the Orcs from that famous team the Gouged Eye and the goodie two shoes humans The Bright Crusaders.
Hi Jim yes this looks like the beginning of an excellent season already, it may be long with uniforms being brought and made but we all know about the collapse of the old NAF thanks to that robber and thief who shall not be named, but we all envy him running off with the Darkside Cowboys Cheerleaders. That is of course if they haven't sacrificed him to Khaine.
Yes Bob, that guy isn't called the Three Horned for nothing! But enough about that lucky so and so, we are here for tonight's game and I am really looking forward to it. Other teams are already putting in bids to join but we will see. Tonight we have the Gouged Eye who started out really feeling the loss of Varag Ghoul-Chewer and a totally new roster. They have filled some gaps in searched high and low for players to take on this up and coming Crusaders team. Lets have a look at the roster.

12 unknowns Bob but so excited to really get the hurt on for this season. Only Gutstuf the Black Orc has had any real experience in Blood Bowl and only because he killed 3 players in team try outs.
They are really scrapping the bottom of the barrel Jim but this is what the New NAF is all about fresh starts and new faces, but I am sure as Blood Bowl always does stars will be made and deaths will follow, lets have a look at the Bright Crusaders shall we.

Yes Bob the only one that truly has heard of them is the local Stone Mason Girt Rockchipper who pre made all their head stones for tonight's match, but you never know they may surprise us yet, I know Coach Heesemann has put the through their paces.
Well the teams are coming out and the crowd is going wild let's head to the pitch.
