The Selections Surely Miss Chappy
The Kharnheim Kings brought the pain in their second win of the season, beating a veteran Chaos Pact squad 2-1. Thankfully, Chappy (their murderous Minotaur) was killed in their last match with the Khemri Bad Mother Bashers.

The first half started a bit ugly for the Kings. The Selections got a blitz off a second early and invaded the Kings' backfield. The Kings were patient, and caged quickly to cover.

G'isa, the opposition's Dark Elf, closed in on the ball quickly, but was knocked down. A follow up boot to the head (missed by the referees) knocked him out of the game. He struggled to get back in. The Kings pushed their advantage, and booted Ogre Punch n' Judy into the crowd along the way. He was knocked unconscious in the resulting frenzy. Eventually the Kings scored as time expired for the half with a grinding offense up the sideline.

The second half went just as well for the Kings. The ball was kicked deep into opposing territory, and the Selections failed to scoop the ball in the open field. Punch n'Judy (back in the game after awaking at half-time) failed to hold back the rush for the ball. Multiple Kings defenders swarmed on the ball and eventually scooped the grounded ball and pushed into the endzone for a second score.

G'isa came back into the game after the score in time for kick-off. The dodgy elf managed to help the Selections quickly push the ball upfield for a quick score. The Kings' numbers were dwindling after several key blocks from the rookie Minotaur, Orlando, as he picked up steam in the second half.

The Kings got the ball back late in the second half and pushed for a third score, but ended up tripping just before the goal line as time expired.

This team has not gotten the win often, but has improved with each game. Can they make a push to make the playoffs?

New Skaven Team Beats Kings
Well, that winning streak didn't last.

The Kings failed to beat the up and coming Skaven squad known as Warp Speed. The first half was as ugly as it gets.

With the Kings receiving the first kickoff, newcomer Asger stumbled and fumbled with the ball. He did not even pick it up realistically. The rest of the Kings offence assumed he would be fine and had already moved in formation up to the line, which had left him in the open.

The Skaven managed to open up some space for their star, Skuttle, and a few others to break through and get to the ball. Multiple Kings players were hauled off the pitch with various injuries. The fast Skaven scooped and scored with the Kings being unable to recover from their mismanaged offence.

The second drive by the Kings ended up cut short by the clock. However, Kharn'agar finally got rolling and managed to absolutely decimate one of the Skaven players. He was pronounced dead on the pitch, but was later seen with their apothecary. It appeared he would recover, unfortunately.

The Kings were able to capitalize on some key errors by the Speed in the second half. The Skaven thrower took possession of the kickoff, and stayed far behind the line looking for an open throw. While searching for a pass, Thorvald managed to chase him down and tackle him in the endzone. Skuttle managed to run back and scoop the ball, throwing it back towards half field to avoid a quick Kings score. Drago scooped the ball and got a pass off to the open Asger who made up for the first half fumbles with a quick score.

The tie was not meant to be. The Speed managed to outrun the Kings for a quick score, making the game 2-1 in favour of the ratmen. The Kings were unable to mount a scoring drive as time expired.

This feels like a letdown for the fans of the team, but one can hope that each loss leads to the team improving. Playoffs seem like a reach, but we shall see.

The Kings Crack the Win Column
There it is folks - the first win of the season!

The Kharnheim Kings managed to pull off the upset, beating a veteran Wood Elves squad (It's Just an Elf) 2-0. The power run game really worked well and Kharn'agar enjoyed his typical carnage. Lord Borak and Grashnak Blackhoof once again joined forces for the Kings. The crowd always seems to enjoy seeing the pair on the field working together.

The Kings recieved the first kickoff, and methodically pushed down the field. The elves did manage to take advantage of an open seam and popped the ball loose, but the Kings were able to recover. The wardancer that hopped into the cage got tossed into the crowd by Grashnak for his efforts. He didn't get too badly injured, but did sit out the rest of the game. Kael ran the ball in for his third score of the season.

In the second half, the elves bunched up to protect the ball on kickoff. Kharn'agar lowered his horns and charged in, knocking out at least one elf in the process. The elves failed to move the ball away from the daemon before he crushed the ball carrier. The ball popped out loose towards the line of frenzied Kings players. Thorvald, a new addition to the team, was quick to grab the ball behind the line.

The Kings replicated the running game of the first half, and drove the rest of the field. The elves were unable to crack the formation. Thorvald gave a quick toss to Korak who then tossed to Torfi to run in the score as time ran out.

This looked like the team that Gregor had envisioned when he put them together before the season - a power run game with heavy hitters all around. The crowd was loud and proud all day long.

Go Kings!

Madness Hang Another Loss on Kings
Elves like to be elves.

The Kharnheim Kings returned from a long break to take on the Midnight Madness a second time this season. Madness fans are quick to remember their last match, where their star runner was torn to shreds by rabid Kings fans. This game started out not much different.

The Kings took possession of the first kick-off, and Kharn'agar made quick work of the elf front line. As the ball was advanced, the demon sent at least two elves off the pitch in quick succession. However, one elf managed to recover from getting hit in time to sneak through and pop the ball loose. Although the ball bounced around the Kings' line, it ended up in the hands of an elf and got tossed to the flashy Anna Moontongue for the first score.

The Kings were able to answer with a drive of their own in the first half. The ball miraculously bounced into Kharn'agar's hands during the kickoff, and his deathgrip of the ball was not to be challenged as he stormed down the pitch for the score. With so many elves off the pitch, the large stampede of Kings players could not be slowed.

The elves were not to be outdone. With some miraculous playmaking, the elves whipped the ball downfield for the quick score to end the half.

The second half was one to forget for the Kings. Kharn'agar appeared to be fatigued, and didn't quite smash the elf line like he did early on. The Madness took the second half kickoff for a score with some of the extra bodies that recovered from the first half.

Although the Kings managed a quick score partway through the second half, the Madness ended the game on a scoring drive. The win was not meant to be, with the Kings losing to the Madness 2-4. Anna Moontongue got the hat trick for the elves with three scores on the day. The highlight for the Kings had to be Kharn'agar romping his way down the pitch for the score in the first half.

On a side note, rumour has it that some of the Kings' winnings had disappeared after the match. One fan reported seeing a cloaked figure dash in and out of their locker room with a coinpurse in hand. If true, it could leave the Kings cash short for free agent signings in coming matches.

Their next match is against the local wood elves. We'll see if they can survive a match against a squad of desperate and blood thirsty players like the Kharnheim Kings.

Kings Tie League Champs
What. A. Game.

The Kings took on the league's defending champions, the Bad Mother Bashers, in a down-to-the-wire brawl last Sunday.

The Bashers had a huge crowd follow them to the game, and they were definitely the fan favorites. It looked like less than half were there for the Kings, but that can be expected with a newer team taking on the champs. However, former league all-stars Lord Borak the Despoiler and Grashnak Blackhoof were in the area and signed a quick one-day deal with coach Gregor to help bolster his ranks.

The Kings won the coin toss and deferred. The Bashers got to work with the ball, forming their standard cage and pushing up the field. Kharn'agar, Grashnak, and Borak managed to knock around some cage edges (even injuring Tomb Guardian Nut), but the super quick Bes managed to drive the field and score with little time remaining for the Kings to answer.

The Kings took the second half kickoff and played a very aggressive offense. They pushed down the sideline quickly in a partial cage formed by Borak and Grashnak. Kael handled the ball well, and with some last minute heroics by Kharn'agar to prevent Bes from knocking the ball out, the Kings managed to score.

The third drive of the game started on a precarious note for the Kings. The crowd was in a frenzy after the last Kings' score, and stormed the pitch. Every player on the Kings, except Borak, was knocked down and stunned by the crowd. The Bashers only had a few fall, which was not surprising given they were the clear crowd favorites. Kharn'agar was taken out of the game by a foul from the Bashers, but was thankfully not injured.

Bes took the ball and pushed through the broken opposing line. The Bashers quickly made contact with many of the Kings players as they were getting up. This prevented them from getting a clear shot at Bes. As Bes passed through the line, Borak managed to dodge away from one of the Tomb Guardians and get a shot at the agile ball carrier. The ball popped out! Bes managed to get up and grab the ball again, short of the goal line. This time Grashnak did his best to get away from a scrum and took a shot at Bes, merely pushing him around. Bes used his quick feet to get onto the ball, but didn't manage to pick it up as it bounced into the end zone.

Drago played hero as he ran for the ball and scooped it in the end zone to prevent Bes from getting to the open ball. Bes took a shot at him, but the ball bounced out of bounds and was kicked back halfway across the pitch where no one could score.

Magnus was seriously hurt in the next few minutes, but the game would end in a glorious tie. The clear underdogs would be satisfied with the result, and everyone contributed. Gregor was seen with a slight smile as he left the game.

Dark Elves Win Battle of Attrition
Oh boy. What a game.

The Kharnheim Kings faced a talented Dark Elf squad known as the Midnight Madness. The Madness "had" who should be viewed as the best ball carrier in the league, Tony Mercury. His presence was felt everywhere in the first half. The Kings received the kickoff and managed to get within a few yards of the end zone, but the Madness utilized their speed and agility to pop the ball out and run it back for a score. After the elf score, the Kings were unable to score the quick touchdown.

During this half, the Kings lost lineman Stefan in a scuffle with elf Ben Beetmore. Thankfully, daemon Kharn'agar returned the favor, sending Beetmore off the pitch for at least another game. Kharn'agar also sent two others out for the game in the half.

The second half started very favorably for the Kings. With the elves deep in their own end receiving the kick, they managed to get a quick step on the snap to chase the ball down early. Mercury could not push the ball downfield, Kael managed to scoop the ball and score.

The elves managed to drive the field over the next few minutes and take the lead again, and the Kings were unable to match the score before regulation time ran dry.

Most Kings fans would point out that the most exciting point of the game was Kharn'agar's second half maul of Tony Mercury. Mercury, playing a bit fast and loose on the sideline, got gored by the beastly daemon and thrown into the crowd. The bloodthirsty Kings fans did him no favors, and ripped him to shreds. Even the elf's apothecary was unable to help the All Star.

We'll see what this means going forward. Kharn'agar is the early team MVP for sure, but who else will step up?

Kharnheim Kings Join the Melee
Here come the newest competitors to the pitch, and they look mean. Coach and owner Gregor the Black is returning for his third season with a fresh team. His Kharnheim Kings took on a local undead team in preseason play in an effort to drum up some fanfare. This did not disappoint, with two undead taken off on stretchers and four touchdowns scored by the violent Chaos worshippers.

What will they look like this season? With some of the big bad teams (ie. Bad Mother Bashers) returning for the 2519 season, they may be overmatched. Only time will tell. Word has it that the Kings' first match is against the Midnight Madness Dark Elf team. We'll see if they can hold their own against the swift, the pretty, and the deadly.
