Wood elves would make sense, because they can use Tree Men as well, making that a dual release model.

Yeah, this is my thinking as well. Plus, wood elves are the last team that was in Death Zone 1 but hasn't gotten a release, aren't they? Seems like a no-brainer.

There is a kickstarter currently going on for some really lovely Skaven Fantasy Football miniatures going on at the moment if anyone is interested.

The team looks really well designed and animated, and the small extras are a nice bonus. They are likely to reach their 8k Euro goal, which means free cards, tokens and footballs, but I can't see the others being reached. Regardless, the miniatures are excellent, and look a heck of a lot more animated than the GW offerings.

They are really good! If I were thinking about a Skaven TT team I'd buy them.

Only 2 left!

Good old GW yet again putting basic content behind a paywall.

It's free if you watch live, you know? And the subscription is Twitch, not them.

It's GW who decide to put their VoD on sub only or free, not Twitch.

Can't blame them since they seem to follow other fellow channel like G&S on how to make Twitch money.

Please, if someone is going to watch today's twitch, post the images(miniatures, artworks etc etc) that they show.

Thanks in advance.

Don't have the screenshots uploaded but... loads of new stuff. Flings now have 2 new positionals, new star players (including a Golden Era) and 2 new inducements.

New positionals:
0-2 Catcher 50k - 5-2-3-6 - Catch, Dodge, Right Stuff, Sprint, Stunty
0-2 Hefty 50k - 5-2-3-7 - Dodge, Fend, Stunty

There was also a goat riding Star Player 6 3 3 7 with Horns, Juggernaut, No Hands and other skills I can't remember.

Didn't see any new minis. But you can figure out the Catchers and Heftys in the photo of the content of the Flings box they already showed.

They have an inducement (60k) that's like a small bomb (available for Flings and Ogres) and another (0-3, 40k each) that gives D3 Flings... Dauntless, Frenzy and Really Stupid.

I really only saw the goat rider and the other guy in the same page... 5 3 2 8 with Thick Skull, Dirty Player and I don't remember... (my memory is really awful...) available to Ogres too.

And there are rules for stunty leagues, too.

Took some screen shot, 2nd pic kinda blurry but easy enough to make out what was written I guess...

The new positionals look interesting.

We'll need some weigh-ins from real Fling vets. As far as I've known in Blood Bowl, most Fling coaches tend to kick a player off the team if they even get a single skill, as it can cause a quick TV bloat. And Flings want low TV to pick up the Chef and Deeproot.

Really interesting artworks. I love the treeman and the idea of haflings riding a goat.

I guess they have not said anything about when the star players will come out?

A pity how slow they come :(

When the war sheep comes out, I may not be able to resist collecting a haflings team.

DId they show off the dice and pitch?

The new positionals look pretty cool, the team kinda did need a bit more of a dynamic going on with it's players. They aren't much fun to play in a league IMO cause they never develop well, and even then I know some players fire halflings that start to bloat team value.

Yes and yes. The dice are green with white markings (the team logo is crossed knife and fork).

The pitch is a farmer's field, with the markings laid out in rope and bunting, with jumpers for goalposts. When setting up for a drive the kicking team can move the line of scrimmage one square backwards or forwards. In the second half, as the field has become all muddy, the restriction on the number of players deployed in the wide zones is removed and all players are at -1 MA but can Go For It an additional time.

As for team value, IIRC the Catcher would be worth 70k if you trained up a Halfling Hopeful to get the same skills, but only costs 50k to recruit.

So, there are no dates for the hafling team? I imagine that even less for the star players, no?

Sounds pretty nifty, I feel like it's been a while since the team was announced and my interest has waned from super excited to busy with other things. Hard to say if i'll still pick them up, at this point i'm just going to leave it up to how they handle the treemen. If they're plastic and affordable then i'll probably dive in. But as it is i'd need two boxes of halflings (cause I think the box only has 12 and ideally i'd need 16-18 for the sake of options, plus 2 treemen and that makes them seem like possibly the most expensive team in the game out of the box. Especially compared to chaos where with one box you get you're whole starting roster for a new league in one go.

The suggestion was that a box of halflings and two treemen would give you fourteen players, leaving two spots for star players.

It's a month, pretty much to the day, the original reveal was on the March 11th Warhammer Community post from GAMA.

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/03/11/breaking-news-from-gama/

We just get so much info from GW these days that even a week feels like a long time.

I just noticed a bunch of things are missing from GW's webstore... there are no pitches, no dice sets, no card packs, no sleeves. Seems a little odd. Do you think they're getting rid of that stuff entirely, or just no longer stocking the old ones?

Glad I already got all of them, though I did want to pick up more sleeves for future card packs, assuming any future card packs exist.

Nobody knows, stuff gone and comeback in the past, I guess it up to the demand, although I highly doubt the card would come back, the dice and pitch, maybe.

I hope the cards come back too as they had the extra "effect" type cards

A lot of the extra bloodbowl stuff has been reprinted several times, especially the pitches. With warehouse space currently at a premium, GW probably thinks it is safer to do several smaller print runs, rather than ending up with a pile of pitches taking up warehouse space.

All of that dice/pitches and stuff I believe is outsourced and printed by a different company. They also sold out of much of the necromunda stuff, and even dice for core WH40k armies that never got restocked. I think it's wild they can't even keep unique dice stocked for their #1 selling game, if something sells out then I dunno I think it's selling well enough to consider producing more, at least until sales slow down.

Or they just discarded/delist the entire stock since I highly doubt all of them sold out at the same time.
