Should have spent more time on the models and less on the grass!

No-one has complained about the lack of bitz ordering yet, this is disappointing. Back in the day, we could call GW (on our land line) and order an Orc BB team, plus an extra two black orcs and an extra blitzer, giving us 4BO, 4BL, 1 Thrower and a few linemen, ie a decent Orc team. We can't do this anymore and I think it's a damn disgrace.

How do you think that would work with plastic parts on a sprue?

When one or two parts are much more popular (as in your example) they have a pile of partial sprues left?

They'd have to charge you more than the cost of a box (the cost of two sprues plus time to clip and pack) for that.

Just look at the prices bitz sites charge and you'll see the same thing.


I don't think it would work. That was an example of a non-serious post. Bitz orders were good though.


I also don't think GW would want to be competing with the Bitz ordering sites.

It's easy enough to pick up bits to build some extra orcs or goblins, and if you keep an eye on the right sites (bits and kits in the UK) you can buy individual minis from the Blood Bowl sprues.
Modelling by bits gets expensive when you're trying to do a whole army but for a group of models the size of a BB team it's pretty cheap and you get some unique models out of it too.

I bought 2 orc boys and 2 black Orc warriors and have mixed and matched heads and arms with the orcs from the BB box and now I have 4 unique blitzers and 4 unique black orcs. Just in the process of painting them up!

I don’t think they’ve ever revealed a new plastic mini on warhammer live before so I wouldn’t get your hopes up.

Thats true, but maybe they give clues.

Last week they talked a lot about what they are going to realease about the LoTR.


In any case I will not be able to hear it, if someone posts the information it will be appreciated.

They said that the next team would be a "Blood Bowl Team" with "players" and would probably be a name you would have heard if you've played BB for a few years. Likely from the Teams of Legend.


any ideas?

Wasn't that how Shambling Undead got announced?

Yeah, well, I didn't need the twitch to know that the next Blood Bowl Team with players would be one from the Teams of Legend. Like litterally every single one since now.

Basically nothing more than wind here.

If someone had been playing blood bowl a few years, they would have heard every name. But out of what's left only a certain couple might be simply infamous for one reason or another. And that would be Chorfs or Halflings, it's gotta be one of those two.

Not really, they were going over the mini's revealed at the Open day, showing rules for them etc... they had a couple of questions about are certain things coming... and the usual 'we'll be doing them at some point down the road' kind of replies where given. Nothing new mentioned though, unless I fell asleep for a moment and missed it.

The problem I have with the greebo stuff is it doesn't even feel like Blood Bowl, or Warhammer...or an old world parody. Some of the teams look derpy, others look decent. But the feeling just isn't there.

Yea, those lizards look cool and all, but nothing about them suggests rugby/football.

The miniatures will be metal.

A Frog Team will be included in KS.

Just wondering if anyone might please be able to offer a little description as to what the special pitch rules are for the most recent undead one? Can't find whether it is special weather rules (per earlier releases) or a standalone effect that comes into play after half time (like later ones). Presume it is the latter, but any details would be greatly appreciated.

Okay, these are the Battletoads. Only the Dark Queen as a coach mini is missing.

With those nice fists, you could chuck some weapons in their hands for some kind of crazy Slann warband.

"Fresh off a grueling exercise regimen, and tired of sending Seraphon to do their dirty work, the Slann go to the Mortal Realms to do some WORK."

Also, those not-Kroxigors look like freaking Godzilla. And I mean that in a good way. Ditch that crappy Salamander and have the upper right one melting some Chaos forces with his atomic breath. The upper left one is also pretty amazing.

Metal minis is completely useless for Blood Bowl. The most important reason the new teams are exciting is they are NOT metal! I paint my minis once, I don't want to repaint noses and other pointy parts after every single match.

Yeah ... I somehow got through 3rd edition and all the subsequent living rulebooks without damaging my miniatures. "Completely useless" is nonsense, given that thousands of people used 'em for thirty years.

Prime with a primer specifically for metal and varnish properly. It really isn't a problem.

That said, I'm not a fan of metal models either.

I find it pretty odd the next team hasn't been announced yet, anyone know when the next open day or show off event takes place? I can only think of the LVO and that seems like a real possible time to see the next team.
