The winner of the New World Conference who would be my opponent was my good friend Adrian who is a fantastic Bloodbowl coach and did absolutely awesome this season, especially as he began with a Starter Vampire team.
So after a few niggly weeks where real life and work got in the way, we both finally met to duke it out on the pitch.
Atrocity Exhibition vs Nachtafen Nightlords
The weather was very sunny and the commentators were debating whether the weather would affect the Vampires performance in the game. They had to practically shout as the roar of the blatantly advantageous undead crowd!
The teams set up and the Nightlords kick to Atrocity, the ball goes high and a Ghoul dashes up and collects it. Atrocity drive slowly towards the Vampires endzone trying to maximize the ammount of damage they can do.
Straight away two Thralls are KO'd and a Vampire Lusting for Blood charges off to find a willing virgins neck (fat chance in Huntingdon !!!) Atrocity's Star Wight Blitzes and KO's another Vampire. The Nightlords incensed finally get their plays together and a Vampire Blitzes the Ghoul with the ball and leaves him Stunned, the ball bounces free and another spare Vampire dodges in to collect it. (I made a terrible error here as thought I had left my Ghoul out of range of a Blitz and this nearly cost me the whole game straight away)
The Nightlords move the ball upfield, but a Thrall trips over a trailing bandage from a Mummy and CAS's himself. Atrocity pile into the Nightlords and a Zombie piles onto a prone Vampire with the ref calling foul. However the Vampire is CAS's but somehow manages to Regen (must have serious Factor 100 sunblock on)
A Zombie gets a good hit on a Thrall and gets a CAS then the Nightlords Vampire with the ball goes hurtling towards Atrocitys endzone, only a small extra step to score........but he stumbles.....he gains his balance....no, he's falling...he hits the ground with a wet smack and the ball flies off the end of the pitch. The fans launch the ball back into the centre of the pitch and a waiting Ghoul nods his thanks to relatives in the crowd and leaps over the opposition and dashes downfield, dancing madly as he hits the endzone to score TOUCHDOWN!!! 1-0 Atrocity.
A Mummy stands right in the way of a Thrall and the result is a CAS's Thrall. The Nightlords are decimated, they only have one player left on the pitch and Atrocitys Ghoul skips in to score their second TOUCHDOWN!! 2-0 Atrocity.
