We present a non perturbative study of SU(2) gauge theory with two fundamental Dirac flavours. This theory provides a minimal template which is ideal for a wide class of Standard Model extensions featuring novel strong dynamics. After reviewing our findings for the Goldstone bosons and spin-1 spectrum, we present our new results for the sigma and eta states. We evaluate the relevant disconnected contributions and obtain benchmark results that are crucial input for model building.
