No, nothing is invalidated. It's hyperbole.


Oh, I know that. I'm asking it so the people spouting the hyperbole might do some analysis.

Introspection is an under-rated quality these days.

I really don't see what the problem with the almanac is - are we really saying that it's bad when a company offers you something for less than the price used to be?

The only thing that would have made me complain about the compendium is if they'd done an Angels of Death on it and combined a small amount of important new material with a load of re-printed material.

Seriously guys, can we just drop it? We've dedicated the better part of a page to it and now we're starting to fling off snide remarks as well?

Extreme 1: Person bought those books and are now unhappy because they could have instead bought the compendium and are unsatisfied with what GW have done.

Extreme 2: Person bought those books and are happy because they have those books and will buy the compendium too and are satisfied with what GW have done.

People in this thread exist somewhere between those extremes. Cool, we all understand each other? Lets move on then shall we?

If we have nothing else to talk about it's time to let the thread die until the next nugget of actual news or rumours pops up.

or how about you let people talk about the things they want and filter out the stuff you're not interested in?

... If anyone's curious, the NAF put out a newsletter today with the results of a vote making the Khorne and Brettonian teams official.
not really interested in this, IMO Naf are quickly turning themselves into the biggest group house rule.
Putting the NAF into direct conflict with the game proper!

IMO They should try to promote the game as it is now.
They are alienating people who are not that interested in unofficial house rules.

Panic...

I will always support those that support briding the divide with house rules and not insist on RAW all the time.

As such... good on the NAF allowing Khorne and Bretonnians. Our league will follow suit.

Because this thread has a topic. It's News and Rumours. It's in the bloody title of the thread and in the name of the subforum. News and Rumours threads are hard enough to follow as is. We have a subforum where you can create more general topics if you'd like, here, I'll give you the links...

Dakka discussions

Games Workshop Board Games & Specialist/Legacy Games

If the discussion of the compendium had anything useful to add it wouldn't be so annoying, but everyone knows where everyone else stands unless they're purposefully ignoring it because the positions are so damned simple, either you don't like what GW did or you do or you don't care.

apparently, in the preview of the next month of the WD is mentioned blood bowl.

If this means a new team, I hope they show it soon

I dont suppose anyone knows if anything new was shown at last weekend's event? It seems such a shame - in the midst of all these new Nurgle releases for 40k and AoS - that they didn;t follow suit with the Nurgle team (the one I have been really looking forward to since launch, annoyingly).

That’s because they want you to buy the AOS figs and convert them. As soon as you are done with doing that then they will release the team which will be just better looking enough to get you to spend more money on it. It is the GW way.

I tried to pick two in similar poses for you.

The Elf player is about half a head taller than the witch elf.

Did anyone have a look at this? In the preview it just looked like them showing off some paint jobs, but if there are any previews or new rules I'd love to hear about them.

I've seen photos for new dice sets for Underworld (glow in dark) and chaos renegade. Other than that, there's not much to go on?

Well as they are showing human and orcs painted in the same color scheme....it might be something. Plus the 2sets of dice will be fleshed out teams with possible new resin upgrades.

I personally can't wait for them to release the Nurgle team, so that I can complete my Nurgle collection across all three games.

Please GW, make it happen soon, before I run out of lovely Nurgle minis & am forced to paint something else instead

Matt: It’s the day of the big game (wink, wink) so we thought we’d celebrate all things Blood Bowl, with a compilation of the best of the Blood Bowl articles we’ve featured in White Dwarf since the game’s triumphant return in November 2016 – and best of all, we’ve decided to give it away completely free.

How can you get your hands on it? Simple. If you haven’t already got the White Dwarf Magazine app on your device of choice, head over to the App Store or Google Play to download it.

Nothing but old news lately. Other than two sets of dice, the focus seems to be on Necromunda these days.

We still sorely need the booster packs for Orcs and Humans (preferably with alternative versions for the Gouged Eye and Bright Crusaders). Over a year has past and the two initial teams are still not completed.Also goblins needs the 2nd booster pack and the 2nd troll (which as been leaked photos of last autumn!). Instead we've seen a bunch of less relevant releases (fine as they may be, but less important) like card decks, dice, tokens and fields.

Kind of frustrating to try and collect...

So, you could say they are fumbling the blood bowl releases?

Sky isn't falling.

Necromunda is still fresh and new. More focus on that would be expected.

A new plastic team is incoming, we just don't know what it is yet. We will closer the time (May?).

This is in-line with the quarterly releases mentioned months back at an open day.

The last team was in November, so if they keep their promise of one team per quarter, the next team should be in March. Aside from just dumping it on the warhammer community site there has not been a suitable event to announce it at. The aos open day is on March 3rd so they may announce the next team then.
