Dreadball: The Orcland Blooz
Mighty Ape. You have probably all heard the sad news that Slavetopainting decided to cease business but happily Mighty Ape picked up their stuff. Mightyape has been around for a long while and was originally a Video Games store that has expanded every year. We already used it a lot and it has been stocking wargames stuff for a while and with them taking over the Slave to Painting lines there is some serious choice. That matters particularly at this time of the year when it is pointless ordering overseas. Service has always been great too. My Dreadball box was missing its hex bases and, after a quick email, they were here by quick courier and in the period between Christmas and New Year. Pretty flash.
The W/L/D stats of the teams are available online and can be filtered to show season 1 rules only. Orx win .404 of their games, Humans win .641. So the obvious choice was to go Orx and claim the under-dog mantle. Other teams are Ben's Humans, Vaughans Veermyn (Space Rats) and John's Terratons (Space Turtles). With space Turtles in the League, I'm not even the bashiest or toughest team. We play the first game at Ben's this afternoon. Can't wait.
