The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all

Yeah, Im tired of all this talk about blood bowl skaven humans and whatever, it just goes on and on like the horus heresy.
They really need to move faster to keep up with fanbase attention span.

Yes, it's prepesterous to be excited about teams that have been lacking new models for over a decade but have enough demand that probably a dozen or more companies make alternatives of varying quality.

Thank goodness, because they look like

I'm looking forward to the rerelease but I really do hope its successful enough to justify enough continued support to get all the old teams out. I'm only marginally interested in the Human team, and not at all interested in the Orc team.

According to FW the BB starter set has been finished and is now shipped to GW's depots - release date will be December 2016

This COULD be the box

Those Orcs look awesome. I'm not so sure about the others. I think I'll need to see them up close before I can decide.

I wonder how they've altered any rules? Some teams were a little unbalanced for what they could do and how much they cost. Hopefully they addressed that, although I expect not.

I believe FW said at the last event where they showed off the Blood Bowl stuff (Games Day I think?) that the rules are going to be the same as last edition GW put out saying something along the lines "if it isn't broken...." Now as far as making slight tweaks to stat lines and cleaning up ambiguous stuff, I'm not certain if they will do any of that.

I asked about rules changes yesterday. The core rules are unchanged, but the rules for perpetual leagues have been tweaked quite a bit, as they didn't really work before. Also they said that there will be two or maybe three special play decks.

The four first star players will be Griff Oberwald, The Mighty Zug, Morg'n'Thorg and Varag Ghoulchewer. Zug and Morg are finished and look fantastic.

He said that even with the last versions of star players we got from GW being fantastic sculpts, their new ones are even better! They are planning to release these alongside the main game in December.


I'm looking forward to this game a lot.

Wonder what made them do the humans as essentially one piece models. They really do not stand up to the orcs and those test sprues show why.

They want practical plastics that are cheap and easy to fit on a sprue. Then they give 2 spruces of them to give you 12 players. They want you to accept how they look, but not be completely blown away so that they can sell you the boutique resin humans that will come out around the same time. So the box is playable, but they will get add on sales for the resins.

That doesn't explain why the orcs are four piece models in dynamic poses, while the humans look like something made in the 80s. There's an internal inconsistency in the product coming from the same box, regardless of any follow up resin teams.

It does though - you get two sprues and two each of those have to contain both teams. Fitting more human models in means less sprue space for part splitting.

'Prudence' really means 'don't invest'. And 'efficient'? That means whatever you want it to mean, usually 'cut'. All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

Both teams consist of 12 players. Both sprues have to fit six models. That, and the human sprue has space wasted compared to the orc one.

I guess they really wanted those undercut under the shoulder pads.
