    Yeah going to go with sure hands, need to cut down the chaos a bit. Will be the most useful in any case as the next game is against halflings, so will not have so many RR.

    Note the team is now TV 1700 or so, so quite a bit of tackle around. In my last game (ok was chaos dwarves, so lots of starting tackle), burnt the RR on picking up the ball (was a 3+ as it was in two tackle zones), then failed the dodge away. It is not so unusual to have a tackle guy next to the ball, or even have to make more than one dodge.

    If I was to take accurate it would be as a poor man's NOS as much as anything. Effectively negating one TZ and having some utility in bright sunshine weather or vs Disturbing Presence.

    Accurate, Strong Arm and AG 5 combo means you can ignore two TZ (or sun and one TZ) in both Quick and Short passes, and either sun or a TZ in Long ones, while still passing 2+ on long bombs..

    So yea, poor mans NOS indeed. But as long as you manage to stick to one TZ you don't need any more than what you already got.

    As for "spare rerolls" by sure hands - rerolls can also be used by the GFI:s needed. Not always the ball scatters closer..

    Another week, another trip to the graveyard. The funeral expenses are killing me.

    The good news

    [​IMG]

    The bad news. Dead tree, Dead thrower.
    30 knockdowns/fouls for 13 armour breaks, 4 cas 5 ko 4 stun.

    I got really lucky and got a blitz, together with the ref being on the ball for once.

    At least I got a 6 on the winnings, so 80k more cash

    Ok team


    WD : Strip Ball, Tackle
    WD : +1 MV, tackle [MNG]
    Thrower : +agi, Strong Arm,dodge
    Catcher : Block,SS,fend
    Catcher :
    Line : Wrestle,dodge, tackle -av
    Line :

    Have to get a new rookie thrower and rookie tree, which will leave me with 80k in the bank again.

    Was a funny game that one vs a really beaten up dark elf team. Probably he should ahve a purge.

    Took wizard, apo and babe. In the end though for once the injuries were not bad.

    Managed to score on my posession, steal one with the wizard and steal one after a blitz so was decent day.

    A loner lino picked up a cas, so I decided to buy him. rerolled the 3 for winnings and got a 1, which was unfortunate.

    Tree : Block, Grab, +1MV
    WD : Strip Ball, Tackle
    WD :
    Thrower : +agi, Strong Arm,dodge

    By Safe Hands do you mean Sure Hands or Safe Throw?

    Amen to that, I went in to the season with 11 players and 1580 TV.

    I ended the season with 8 players and 1390 TV.

    6 deaths in a season makes for some tough player development.

    And in both cases Halflings made major contributions.

    Hmm lots of people dropping out.

    7 from this division get promoted to division 3, 2 remain in division 4 and one drops out. Promotions for almost everybody!
