50% through Black Box Trophy
8 days later and 25 games later I find myself at the halfway point. Let's check in

Anti-Science

3/2/3 has progressed to 7/4/4. Very happy with how this team has performed, especially considering their only loss since last update was to Malmir's lizards and I was playing 300k uphill. Developed my first ever clawmb non-big guy and I can understand what all the fuss is about. Having only previously played versus them I've seen from the other side of the table how they can cut through a team. Now I'm enjoying it myself haha. Top nurgle team currently have 18pts from 25 games. I'm at 9 from 15 so if I can manage 9pts from next 10 games... yeah that's not going to happen but it's fun to dream

Heat, Dust and Dreams

Don't want to talk about these guys. 2/1/5 when we last spoke (after 25 games) and it's now 4/2/11. Still, less than 10 games to go with them. Guard and stand firm is proving very nice as first 2 skills on the TGs. But the team is struggling from lack of doubles (1 so far, on dead thro-ra) and stats (none so far). We're just being outplayed and it's frustrating.

Rumbletums Batterers

Flings are back in the game. Only been drawn twice since we last spoke but that 0/1/2 has turned into 2/1/2 including a disgusting 5-0 win vs some ogres. Block on a hefty has me dreaming big but realistically he'll be dead soon. As will the whole team. But they try godammit.

Warpstone Munchers

Probably the biggest revelation of this run of the BBT has been how much I enjoy underworld. They still have that stunty risk (which you know I love) but can do stuff too. I've been blessed with a couple of awesome blitzers and... not much else to write home about on the team tbh. They're now 7/2/4, had a lovely 2 - 0 win vs some chorfs and are going full smallman with 0rr (just leader) for their final 12 games.

---

Record was 8/5/12 after 25 games, now 20/9/21 after 50 games
Was 14.5pts after 25 games, now 31.5pts after 50 games
Was 234th after 25 games, now 139th after 50 games

So second batch of 25 games has seen 12 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses. Which means I'm getting better (maybe). And if you take out the khemri it's 10 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. So message of the post is don't take khemri in the BBT.

Thanks for reading

nice, keep it going mate! Good to see a few statement wins there :)

Go JD!
These blogs are more entertaining than actually playing in the BBT (for me)

Goddammit, JD!
You're going to beat me at this rate!!!

Really nice jd! I am also at 50 games, and with a worse record than you - Dakr Elves 6/4/3 and my best team so far (helps to have a ST5 blitzer); Khemri 3/5/5 (struggling with these a lot); Chaos Dwarves (8/1/6, should be better) and Halflings (2/1/6 and will never, ever play box flings again... can't wait to finish my 25 games with them...) overall 19/11/20, 28.5 pts. Lets see how I finish my run :)

Well done! You should let the Batterers join the race for the Throne of Blood! We need more blackbox teams with activity on them, and everybody loves a halfling!

Leader on RR on the UW, I never had the guts to do that. Keep on with it and hope the Khemri pick up the pace.
Posted by jdm on 2020-05-08 18:29:52
The Batterers came 20th last season in ToB. I'll probably reach the point where I have to mono them to finish this run.

Yeah neil, it's a risky move for sure. But worth a try, esp as I plan to make a non bbt UW team after this 25 game run

Ah cool Pedro, we'll have our own little meta tournament going. Nice DE Blitzer!

Sweep, I might PM you to continue this discussion.

Heh, thanks sokeeffe. You should join in though.

Joost, I hate your humans. By which I mean you were far too good with them.
