Armoured Mummies?

Awesome!

They're "classic" undead, before the Vampire Counts/Khemri split and the new AoS stuff.

So Ghouls, Zombies, Skeletons, Wights and Mummies.

Hopefully there are enough space for a 2nd Ghoul and Wight variation.

Alsö wïk. If they can carry over that style of Zombie to AoS, I’ll be a happy camper!

2 sprues of 7 minis in the team apparently.

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
We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.

A roster need at least 11 players to start.

In the case they actually make 7 guy on 2 normal sprue, and a box have 4 sprues, meaning they now have a lot of optional build, that'd be fantastic. Probably not happen.

2 x 7 = 14




I really like that undead team, if I want to be picky i would rather that the mummy wasnt running but its only nitpicking.

Dear god, if you can't source alternative undead heads for these there is something Very wrong with you.

"There are no alternative undead heads in the world, woe...oh woe" is not what they said though, is it

There are alternative heads for almost everything available from somewhere, that doesn't change the value proposition for this product, which does not have any included.

EDIT: Also; classy, reacting to a perfectly reasonable remark with personal insults.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?
I have a blog now, evidently. Featuring the Alternative Mordheim Model Megalist.

incredible that a person cant said what he would like.

I dont play BB and im buying a lot of BB teams for conversions.

They are making a very good faces/heads, better than AoS faces, so I would have liked to have more variety. Specially a ghoul without helmet.

it seems that they have put a miniature more in exchange for less bits

Not really; most of the other teams don't have much in the way of alternate parts either.

Fair enough that you'd like more variety, but 'm not sure it's worth singling out this team as a particular problem.

Nurgle for example has 2 diferent heads for the pestigor, 3 heads for 2 warriors, and 4 heads for 3 lines. ( in a sprue)


Im fine with undeads, but i love the artwork of the goul without helmet in the video

Looks like this will be the first 14 player team, the last shot has 14 models in the frame with duplicates of each model. That's pretty cool and different. Good way to solve the zombie/skeleton issue.

Wait, they broke the rule of 12 models only in the box!!! How is this possible???

-2 Mummmies
-2 Wights
-2 Ghouls
-4 Skellies
-4 Zombies

Imagine if they ignored that rule for the other teams! 4 Blitzers on Human and Orc team - perfect. Additional Dwarf Blockers to "complete" the team, nice! 4 Gutter Runners on Skaven - yay! 4 Catchers for the Pro Elves. 4 Pestigors for Nurgle. But no, only Undead! At least they're not getting 4 Ghouls.

It's a very short distance to Necro and Khemri now!

Technical limitations for bulkier models, I would imagine. Models with thicker limbs and torsos need to be two-part to get the flow right, whereas the thinner limbs of the skeletons and wights might mean that's not such an issue so they had enough room on the sprue for another model.

I think it's more an issue with the space on the sprue than number of miniatures, so it really doesn't surprise me that match. Those skeletons/zombies/ghouls all look to be pretty small. I don't think you can complain that Undead are getting 14 players though, they aren't getting max positionals, they are just getting two types of linemen. Necro could be pretty easily resolved with a Werewolf/Flesh Golem booster from FW, toss in another pair of zombies for good measure and you'd be set. Khemri will probably be pretty far down the line - I don't think they are a particularly well liked team from my experience with BB.

I think Wood Elves are needed before High Elves (more unique playstyle in my opinion), but I agree on Lizzies. Now that Undead has a team, I think Lizzies are team that is most needed.

Would expect the 'standard' accessories:

-Undead ball rules (White Dwarf)
-Cards
-Dice
-Pitch (with new unique weather rules)
-Spike Magazine (with new inducements & star players)
-possible/future random selection of new star player(s) from Forge World
-possible/future booster pack for the last 2 Ghouls

So will they be the same price as the other teams or will there be an increase due to it being 14 models?

Love the ghoul and zombies. Like the coherence they gave to the team with the shoulder armors for all players. But I wish the skelies were less dynamic and the mummy not running, more mystical & and taller. This bulky running dude looks MV6 ST4, not MV3 ST5...

You know the booster pack will be a mummy, a wight, a ghoul and a skeleton, just to anger everyone.

Blood bowl and warhammer mummies have always been undersized compared to their stats. The third edition BB mummies were essentially man-sized:

At least the current mummies are bigger.

The mummies are better Chaos Warriors than the actual BB ones
