Blood Bowl Final Shock Result!July 11, 2011 24 Comments
After five months of gaming, the annual club Blood Bowl tournament came to its thrilling conclusion.
The final featured the much-fancied G.I.M.P.S. Chaos Pact team from the Pro-League (beaten finalists last year, TV 1780k) and rank outsiders, the Tinys 'n' Titans Ogre team from the Sheffield league (in which they came third, TV 1300k).
The Titans had somehow negotiated the playoffs despite stiff opposition from the Pigsturd Stealers (a 28 turn thriller) and the unbeaten Slaanesh 69ers. The G.I.M.P.S. had blown past the All Good Fun Slann team (inexplicably in the playoffs, still trying to work that one out) and demolished the Rotherham league winners, the Rottenham Redsox.
The final was a tense affair with lots of midfield scuffling. The Ogres first drive was stopped, although the Chaos Pact were unable to capitalise and score. In the second half, careful deployment of a wizard allowed a snotling to sneak through the Chaos line and slip away to score what turned out to be the only touchdown of the game. A late push by the Chaos team was held up by the Ogres flinging bodies in the way and the underdogs secured the victory.
There has been no trophy presentation as yet, as last year's winner still hasn't handed the trophy back!
