Kharnheim Kings

Race:  Khorne
Coach:  Gregor the Black
Description
It had been weeks since Gregor was released from prison. The months of confinement had left him cured of whatever sickness that had plagued him the season before. He was moving on from the rotten Undercity Wonders.

In the cold and damp cell, he conversed and became familiar with the local group of pit fighters and gladiators that were finding themselves out of work. They had the same murderous tendencies, but needed a new outlet. Gregor decided he would give them the forum for violence they needed. Time for a new team.

There will be blood.

Kings Extend Winning Streak
We are rolling. The Kings have extended their winning streak to two games!

The Consortium of Ogres came to town to challenge the Kharnheim Kings to a match of knock-down anddrag-it-out Blood Bowl, just as Nuffle intended.

The Kings took the kick-off and started hot. They picked up the ball and pushed up the field aggressively. Kharn'agar knocked down some ogres to open up the field for the drive. The ogres largely decided to cause havoc on the front line as the ball pushed past. Some snotlings used themselves as a barrier to the endzone, but Asger the Herald was able to push through and score.

The ogres were unable to launch much of an offense on the next kickoff, and the ball was left fairly unprotected in the flank. Kristinn and Korak pushed up the sideline to the snotlings that were trying to move the ball. Kristinn was able to find the loose ball and push in for the second score of the game with time running out. The ogres got some free shots at the Kings on the kickoff as time expired, but didn't accomplish much.

The second half got bloody. The ogres took the kickoff and were able to gather the ball and protect the carrier. A few on both sides were knocked out of the game on the line, with Kharn'agar wreaking havoc again amongst the ogres and the ogres abusing the smaller pit fighters on the Kings.

The ball largely did not move for most of the half. Kings players surrounded and piled in on the group of snotlings, and ogres predictably followed. Kharn'agar was able to essentially murder one of the smaller ogres, but it still did not open up the pile of bodies for the ball to come out.

Eventually, the ball was knocked into the hands of a snotling that broke free of the cluster. It found its way up the field, and one of the ogres attampted to throw it for the score. Ogres can not handle the ball (or snotlings) very well, and fumbled both to miss getting a score as time ran out.

It was a fun game despite the various injuries on both sides, likely because the Kings looked fairly dominant.

If they keep it up, they really will look like their namesake in this league.

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!
