So....no news and previews shown today? Guess they didn't really reveal squat, otherwise someone would have posted something by now. Weird they had an hour section for blood bowl news and previews but there's nothing to show for it.


I'm a bit curious about this myself. Maybe it was one of those lame "Look at the Nurgle team/ Dark Elf positionals we released! Even though you are paying to watch this and know quite well of their existence!" things.

I imagine if it was anything if note someone would have posted here, on Reddit, or on TFF.

I'm wondering when we will see previews for Delaque and the last Blood Bowl team of the year.....seems like we are getting awfully close with only two months of new releases left. Though I do suppose they could show them at Spiel late next month and release them two weeks later, like the Rotters.

I heard on the BB facebook group the next blood bowl team would be revealed at spiel. This was apparently said on the twitch stream. I could imagine Delaque being previewed alongside the new BB team as well. Spiel isn't until the end of october though so we still have weeks and weeks to go.

Thanks for letting me know, I imagine Delaque will also be previewed at Spiel, I really can't see them just previewing them on WarCom or something. Bit of a bummer on the wait though.

Although thr elf cheerleaders look interesting as the bases for cool conversion in the hands of other people (I cant see me buying the for myself)

Elven cheerleaders look like a reasonable midpoint between elf and Slaanesh demonette .

It's the same rules. It's virtually unchanged.

OK, that's good. I'd had a bit of a poke about on the interwebs and wasn't sure.

Might be a Christmas present for the family (I. E me).

Those are all pretty nice models. The cheerleaders are great.

Undead team revealed on the German Age of Sigmar Facebook page.
They look pretty "unique" compared to the Death range but it might be the paint job (please GW, let Specialist Games models be painted by 'Eavy Metal or at least the Army Painter team).

Ah heck yes, they look lovely too!

It looks like seven unique models there, I wonder how that will work. I suppose those Skeletons look pretty small and maybe they fit 7 models on each sprue.

Really, really, really nailed it with the Undead team. Only complaint I can think of is wishing there was a little more of a difference between the Skeletons and the Wight.

I doubt it, since it also messes with the Blitz Bowl teams and allowing FW to do alternate miniatures.

My guess is a sprue will have 1 Mummy, 1 Wight, 1 Ghoul, 1 Skeleton, and 2 Zombies.

Yeah, that is my reaction also. There must be some pretty modular parts though. I suppose Undead could have more than 6 players for Blitz Bowl, Goblins get 8. Who knows if they will get rules though, I never saw any for the Nurgle team.

Huh! I actually wasn't aware that Goblins got 8 players in Blitz Bowl.

The Dark Elves got their cards in a copy of White Dwarf, so more teams could be done the same. Or GW could put out a pack of cards at some point.

I like that the ghoul (assuming that's what the purple skinned one is) seems a bit more human sized/proportioned than regular ghouls.

Neat looking team overall, paint on the zombies looks a bit off.

I really hope they do put out a card pack (I picked up the Dark Elf cards back in September) or something with further teams. Blitz Bowl is a blast, and it's one of my wife's favorite tabletop games, so any excuse to have more content is good by me!

The look of the undead team really threw me off. They will probably grow on me. I think I'm just so used to the blood bowl 2 style.

I'm thinking about picking it up this weekend, since everything I've seen about it makes me think "Blood Bowl but Shadespired," and I've taken a liking to how quickly and decisively Warhammer Underworlds plays.

It's really be great if mini team packs in colored plastics come out, or even a second box set as a general release to game stores everywhere.

I definitely think it's worth it, Blitz Bowl plays pretty quick and the cards are surprisingly fun. Seems to me a lot of people who aren't mini gamers enjoy it too. Colored plastic half teams or a second box for it would be great. They could even just lump two teams together as an expansion. For example they could take a sprue of Dwarves and one of Skaven, add a few new play cards and put it out for 40 or so USD.

Wow they really are doing great things with Blood Bowl at the moment. Really like those Undead models. The skeletons look great; can definitely see conversion potential as the basis for some Grave Guard conversions, very characterful.
