Blood Bowl is a miniatures game of Fantasy Football. It was originally written by Jervis Johnson many years ago. Since then it has undergone several revisions. The Living rulebook is available from here.
Blood Bowl is a two player game that is usually played in around two hours.
It is great fun, but for me, the play time was a bit too long. So I tried a fast-play version called Blood Bowl 7s. You can find it here.
This has been a godsend for me and have really enjoyed playing it.
Finshed Blood Bowl 7s Board
Here is a photo of the finished board.
The pitch itself is made of black foamcore which has been scored with a ball point pen. It was then painted with brown textured paint and randomly flocked with Spring Green fine ballast. The lines are painted on with white acrylic paint.
The pitch was glued onto a large MDF board which was also painted with the brown textured paint.
I created some turn track markers by casting some plaster stones from a Woodland Scenics small rock mold. The trick I used to keep the stones strong was to mix in an equal amount of PVA glue to water solution into the Plaster of Paris instead of the straight water. It has worked really well I think. The rocks were then mounted on 25mm bases and painted. I added some hills to the corners of the board for interest and some trees.
I glued my score board to the MDF (a brief how-to for the score board can be found in my previous posts – tagged Blood Bowl) in addition to my dugouts that I made. To do this I used a low melt hot glue gun. I also added some trees on this side to add interest.
Well, that’s it! I’m really happy with the board and look forward to my first game on it tomorrow! Any questions, feel free to ask. 🙂
