The Real House Maidens of Bugman's Best - UPDATE!

The season is almost half over! I need to schedule my week 5 game (the halfway point) and finish painting my girls. I've let other things take over my time with my girls and I shouldn't have; but that's my own fault and they are suffering for it (only five girls are completely painted and one girl is stuck at the half-dressed point). Not that it is affecting their game play! No, I still suck (my first season), but I am having a ton of fun - and that is what the game is all about, right?


And the crazy part? Call it "beginner's luck", but so far I am making dice rolls that I shouldn't. I mean, in a blizzard, I rolled three 6s in a row to pick up the ball, accurately throw it, and catch it! Dwarves aren't known for their passing abilities, but my girls are making completions left and right. It's insanity!

I've managed to skill-up both runners so now everyone on the team has Block (as it should be). Gwenelyn (a blocker) now has Guard. I'm still trying to decide how to skill-up Frigga, a troll slayer. I wasn't able to buy an apothecary until the end of Week 3 - apparently my dice rolls only suck when it comes to how much gold I get.

So where do I sit, really, in the league? Tied for last. My next opponent? The guy with whom I'm tied. Should be a brutal game; he is playing a Chaos team that has been around a few seasons. The only upside for me: I get just over $700k in inducements. Not quite a repeat of my first game of the season, but damn close! What's that? Something smells delicious...Oh, it's that Halfling Chef, coming to my aid....

As of right now (indecision and all), here is where my team sits:

All in all, not too bad for a first time player, right? I know there are a lot of things that I am probably screwing up, but that's the only way to learn. I've been fortunate enough to have opponents that are patient and work with me when I have questions. Good guys, all of them.

Well, I should probably get to my homework; now that the semester has begun, I must put homework as a priority over Blood Bowl. I just must remember to not let my girls' painting get knocked too far down the list. :)

OH! But before I go, have any of you seen THIS?! Death Roller Race 2000!?!?!? I have already downloaded the rules and markers. Now I just need to find the time to print them out...and then find some people to play with me....
