Lead in the current season by veteran Treeman Dom Squirrelhome, The Woolhamtum Wanderers can be found in the JIBBBL as well as touring The Old World Middlelands playing friendly’s and small tournaments.
Team mascot and Master Chef, Granny Cooksman, boils, bakes and braises the team into peak fitness. It’s also thanks to Granny Cooksman’s culinary skills that you’ll often see freelance star players, including Deeproot Strongbranch and Akhorne the Squirrel, plus regular merc players, Wonny Jilkinson, Bork Ironface, Bang Average and the Chainsaw twins Jambon and Saucisson Charcuterie, lining up alongside the Wanderers as thanks for a full belly (or fine fertilising draught).
On the line, you’ll find Dom & Wooley, the village treemen, who enjoy nothing more than stretching their limbs and bashing the helmets of opposing teams.
Often called the lost village of Halflings, Woolhamtum was for many generations cut off from the Old World during a cataclysmic event. Woolhamtum Valley remained a fertile rich land where the villages survived, protected by steep natural walls on all sides, neither friend nor enemy made contact.
The wise Village elders made the most of this difficult situation, encouraging self-sufficiency and keeping the people of the village not only alive but flourishing.
Much time passed and a unique culture developed within the valley. Chief amounts this was a passion for competitive sports, usually held alongside competitive cookout events.
One summer, Head Elder at the time, the now venerated Morel Cooksman was struggling with repairing a plough. A twist of fate transformed the upturn tool into an antenna that picked up a rogue Cabalvision signal of an, especially exciting Blood Bowl cup final. Thus began the isolated village’s love for the bloodiest of games.
Morel founded The Woolhamtum Wanderers teams in order to play the newly beloved game and put on an exhibition event at that year’s Midsummer Faire. The event became a regular attraction on the calendar and young villagers found joining the team a great way to both avoid actual work and enjoy meals fit for a (Halfling) athlete.
Many years later a lost Dwarf mining party discovered Woolhamtum and its Blood Bowl mad inhabitants opening up the Village to the wider world and allowing the Wanderers to tour the stadia of the Old World.
Head Coach Offal Cooksman, a descendant of founder Morel is the franchise owner of the Wanderers. The team is somewhat nepotistic, giving the captaincy to son, Truffle Cooksman. Truffle may be a mediocre player, but he has a sharp media savvy mind and brings in great sponsorship deals for himself and the team.
This handy pocket chart will ensure you have the absolute best knowledge on the chance of causing yourself a turnover during a block. Especially important formal the stunts 2 die uphills the Wanderers have to make!
85 x 55mm this invaluable reference is printed on a thick 350gsm card with a gloss lamination and rounder corners, so even if nuffle brings up double skulls, you’ll not get a paper cut.
To get hold of a copy of the Truffle’s guide, simply follow the link to the donations page of Rainbows Childrens hospital, Derbyshire. Send a screen cap of your successful donation and your address to email@example.com and I’ll get some copies in the post to you!
I’ll do my very best to get things posted out ASAP. If for some random reason, this goes super well, this may take some time! Rainbows is a local hospice for disabled and young people and a legitimate fanatic place to give a little money too. If you’re in the UK, I’ll send by Royal Mail, if you’re not, send me a message via firstname.lastname@example.org first to check it’s not going to cost more than your donation to get the cards to you! This isn’t an official collaboration with Rainbows, just a nice idea I had.
