|Vice-Captain:||Kerry "Killer" Denzel|
|History:||Hailing from across the lofty isles of Saroux, the Flaming Nuns are drawn from the collapsed Holy Order of the Flaming Nun (known also as Ordo Incendia Sanctimo). When the order's leader, Prince-Archbishop Meffrathal, was indicted by the King for tax evasion and a misadventure involving five young women, the order collapsed and its members dissipated in disgrace. |
Without the guidance of their flaming sacraments and incendiary-themed prayers, not to mention the structure provided to them by the regimented routine of the convent days, many of the Nuns took to drink and drugs.
Dwarf Coach Anzelak Stonefist recruited many of his Starting XI from an illegal bare knuckle boxing ring. Some of the linenuns were even found in the Citadel's infamous red light district. He doesn't seem to mind his girl's dark pasts, for he has his own demons. He is known across the old world as the chief leader of a failed uprising against his father King Hadrak of Karak Hirn. For the best part of a decade, he has lived in Saroux's capital city - the Citadel - running three upmarket cathouses and drowning his sorrows in Bretonnian wine. His friend, the halfling Hal'penny, encouraged him to curb his alcoholism and change his line of employment.
After struggling to get the Nuns noticed in the world of Blood Bowl, and refusing to start his team out in the "elfy" BB7s leagues, the HUBBA management offered the franchise a place in its third division. In a world where leagues fold faster than games are played, Stonefist was happy to sign the parchment (as well as take the advance money). The Nuns will look to turn heads, make waves but ultimately survive. Any trophies or awards are a bonus.
‘The beauty of my girls, you see,’ Stonefist tells us, hiccoughing from all the Bretonnian wine we’ve plied him with, ‘is they’re totally expendable. I mean: to the people they’re vermin. They’re scum. Fans love it when we win; when we make a good play - but they'll also love it when we get smashed into the ground. It’s win-win for anyone in it for the coin. And, let me tell you this for nothing, I’m in it for the coin.’

|Game #||Player||Games||SPPs||Reason for Leaving|
|#1 v Ninjas||The Night Before||0||0||DEAD - Brutally killed holding the line against a fling Treeman during the Nuns' debut. Night Before we barely knew ye. Fling coach's response to the toilet flush? 'Lol'. Disgraceful.|
|#2 v Mummies||The Unkillable||1||0||Retired -1 AG - A broken neck puts the foolishly named "Unkillable" out of Blood Bowl for life.|
|Opponent||Result||Stonefist's Star||Reason||Stonefist's Rating and Comments|
|Ninjas||W 2-0||The Bit on the Side|| 2 cas (including N. injury) from 3 blocks.||6/10. The Ninjas give the girls a difficult opening half. They stand strong, keep their numbers up and utilise their treeman and a wizard well. The flings knock the ball free as the girls try to roll it across field but with difficulty the Nuns gather up the ball, punch a hole through and run in the score. A TTM TD attempt late in the first half is nearly successful, but decent coverage prevents the score. The girls are outnumbered and start the second half cautiously. A linenun is brutally killed, and the girls seem to step up their game as a result. They set into a halfling cage, knock the ball free and seriously injure a fling. The Ninjas make a valiant attempt to prevent a second score, but by now the Nuns' hitting game has turned up and both treeman have unhelpfully rooted themselves away from the action. The girls will need to play better against more able teams if they want a promotion spot.|
|Mummies||L 1-0||Maria St. Martin||Killing a skeleton (though he regenerated).|| 2/10. The Mummies are without one of their Tomb Guardians. The Khemri elect to receive and a good kick and perfect defence allows the girls to put them under pressure early. Maria St. Martin nets a kill, but the pesky skeleton regenerates. The Mummies finally get the ball under control and an excellent series of blocks allows Omar to make a break for the end zone and net the game's first touchdown. On the restart the girls make an attempt to rush quickly down the left flank but are easily stopped by the defending Mummies. Worse still: The Unkillable breaks her neck and has to be retired. In the second half, the girls attempt to rush through the centre for a quick score but are again easily shut down and before long the ball is free at the halfway line and a full scale ruck is under way. The girls work hard but the damage is already done and a superior Mummies team easily prevent the score.|
|Mummies||L 3-1||Not awarded.|| || 1/10. The girls put out an utterly worthless performance against a ruthless Wood Elf outfit. Strip ball and tackling Wardancers wreak havoc and the nun's uninspired cage tactics are easily vanquished. The Hairy Handbag nets the TD and an Elf lineman's arm is fractured, but there is very little for a Flaming Nun fan to remember about this wretched game.|
