Close Up Photos of my Tiny Balls

L to R: Blood Bowl 3rd ed, Blood Bowl 3rd ed, Blood Bowl 3rd ed with added base, Blood Bowl 2nd ed with added base.

I turn thirty-seven next week.  Perhaps I should have outgrown amusing myself with headings like the one above by now.  I remain entertained nonetheless.

The balls in question are for use with Blood Bowl, in case that isnt obvious.

L to R: Dungeonbowl spiked ball, Blood Bowl 2nd ed ball with base (green for unclear reasons), a scratch built bomb, a “Ball Squig” (originally a RT ork squig), Blood Bowl 2nd ed ball (painted blue because its “Enchanted”) and an Iron Ball made from a metal recast of the 3rd ed ball, distributed at the 2003 Blood Bowl.

Over the years Blood Bowl has had various rules for playing the game with alternatives to footballs.  Largely those rules were not great in my opinion.

My regular opponents didnt really want to add the sort of extra random factor that those… ball-ternatives brought to the game.  That changed after I had played a lot of Dungeonbowl with SOS/theottovonbismark and MT, so I made up a few of these little models.

We used the bomb in a few games and the Ball Squig too.  I think that we also used the spiked ball on at least one occasion.

All of the balls have a magnet inserted into the base that corresponds with magnets under the bases of my Blood Bowl teams, as modeled by the skaven mutant above.

The odd-balls may make a reappearance in some Dungeonbowl games soon.  Maybe.
