Well as directed here I am. Rough Fluff first, will edit and tidy it later.

Centuries of slaughter, debauchery and indulgence had finally began to pall for the enigmatic and decidedly egotisical Slaaneshi Daemon Prince, Ahadiel, and so began his search for a new challenge, the story of which is too long and horrific to recount here. Suffice to say after leaving a trail of pain and suffering across the old world the shambling, robed figure of a sorcerer crossed his path, enticing him by uttering promises of great tests of skill, strength and intelligence, the chance to lure thousands of unsuspecting fans into the fold of the god of pleasure and, more importantly, into worshipping his angelic facade ... all this from a mere game.

Taking his most favoured Champion as his captain, he that bore the Daemon's own name, Arkzein Ahadiel, exaclted of Slaanesh, the most promising chosen and a group of beastmen slaves the Prince of Pleasure set off, his ego constantly stroked by the words of the new manager, the mysterious sorcerer, who's constant ministrations fell under the baleful gaze of Arkzein, mistrustful as ever. At first things went well for the team, crushing the local opposition with their superior strength and tactics.

Yet his mistrust was soon given credence as one by one the team fell into madness, raving lunatics who delighted in pain and slaughter on the pitch, losing any semblance of organistaion and teamplay whilst worshiping their new Leporine icon of Slaanesh, a ludicrous sight that left many unguarded to their vicious assualt. At first it seemed the Prince merely ignored this as a sign of devotion, until it became all to clear he had fallen under the sorcerer's spell also, even going sofar as to craft himself a great bloody cloak made of hundreds of Leporine Carcases.

Left sane as an added torment Arkzein remains trapped in this team of pure insanity under penalty of death or madness, attempting in vain to captain them into some sort of organisation. The Leporine Malefactors are rediculed wherever they appear, the sorcerer's powers able to bring forth the team's stadium, the Maledictum, at will. Their their humourous namesake and appearance in soft pink armour leaving spectators and opposition stunned at first and in hysterics the next. The laughing soon stops when the killing starts, the entire team bar one giggling and grinning in glee as the blood flows....

Well done to anyone who gets the joke with the mascot (Idol!), team name and Chaos.

Anyways, Haven't played Blood Bowl since the late 90s so a bit rusty to say the least! Though thanks to Deng Ham I'm now know how to use fumbbl and the client a little and avoided a complete thrashing in my first game, I'm sure I'll be a natural after a few matches.... though how I'll ever manage four minutes a move I don't know!

Always played Chaos and of course tend to go mostly for bashing. (I seem to recall playing an Orc team and both of us asking where the ball was on turn 12 or so *laughs*) though I always try and get some ball skills in there on the Beastmen so the pig skin isn't forever at my feet eating re-rolls and not scoring touchdowns!

Well there you go, a friendly hello and perhaps the motivation I need to strip and repaint my ancient Chaos team for this summer's upcoming league back home.

Evil Bunnies man.

Bingo. :D

One has to have a laugh with Blood Bowl, a bit of facetiousness is what the game is built on, always been a fan of word play and "in" jokes. I mean Slaaneshi Chaos with something as the antithesis as the mascot, writes itself! Best bit is some get it straight off the bat, some don't. Nice evil, serious sounding name but scratch the surface.... Always a bit of craic. :)

Found in the past Chaos can be rather enjoyable to play, weak early on due to lack of skills and (usually) rerolls but can be tuned into any sort of team later on with a few good rolls. Looking forward to having rings run around me and getting bashed off the pitch. ;)

Well, here are three of the Chaos warriors. (Daevar seems to have gone walkabout sometime during the last few years sadly). Painted in the mid to late 90s I think as is painfully obvious.

Currently residing in a nice bath of nitromors, soon to emerge and make their way into the team again in the form of player images as I need a break from 20-40 hour display minatures. ;)

Well some Nitromors, quick slap of paint and *poof* new team Captain. :)

Used hiom as a rough test/practice mini for my "proper" models, unlikely to ever see a Blood Bowl pitch for along time.
