BL!TZ! Magazine Issue 4

Post by Carnivean »

BL!TZ magazine issue 4 can be found by following this link:
http://blitz.ausbowl.com/blitz_issue_04.pdf

Well we really have to say that this has been the most trying so far of the issues. Real world issues really do have a way of interrupting anything. Add into that our first real technical issues with the process and we have overshot by about 3 weeks!

On the plus side, and this is purely by coincidence, the first registered user was me. That was on the 9th May 2007 at 1:42am. So in a little over 2 hours, AusBowl is 5 and we have something special in the giveaway department this month thanks to AusBowl members and Good Games, but more on that later . . .

Thanks to Alex and Comixininos, we have our first site sponsor and right away he has made a suggestion we jumped on. All of the match reports will be presented as a standalone component called a Taste of Turf.

So other than the trials and tribulations we have experienced, the 5th birthday and the good work suggested by Alex, what do we have on offer this issue?
Team focus and a painting focus from AusBowl members
Tons of Dungeonbowl action
A tale of Blood Bowl rediscovery
State updates
Custom pitch construction article
More photography tips and a CanCon pictorial
A MASSIVE 5th birthday giveaway
Plus much, much more!

This issue is big people! I hope you enjoy the BL!TZ.

Oh man, Fighting Fantasy books for the phone? That'd be awesome if they were available on Android :-[

Nice work guys, it came together very nicely!

Virral go and grab the other screen shots I embedded into that article. I should have linked to them.

as ADBC TO it was wonderful to read the amazing match report for the final (that happened while I was entering data etc).

Really well done. A mammoth publication that promises lots of interesting reading over the coming weeks!

Carni, you are single handedly responsible for me buying all 4 of those books for my iPod Touch. I figured I better grab them before they lost the licence. For $3 you can't really go wrong.

I didn't enjoy the match report for some reason. Damn teleporters and bashy Dark Elves! :P

Yeah, good value indeed. Lot of memories as well.

Hopefully more older stuff comes out along the same lines. I remember some books that were a lot more D&D-like and used the poly dice

Thanks Abraxis. I, and I dare say Brett, are still pretty floored by the attention it's getting. It is fantastic are largely due to people like yourself. Having it go beyond the obvious local audience has been exciting.

It's still very much a learning experience for us, but it s good to see people enjoying it
