You're right. I thought the box was just 12 regular halflings. Didn't realize some of them is supposed to represent new positions
Well Malibu Stacy has to have a new hat, otherwise why would people buy something they already own.

Can't wait for the Lizardmen positionals.

Anyone know a good GW model to replace the treemen for the Halflings? The old, made to order treeman is... well, it is what it is.

I was thinking of using some of the smaller 32mm models from the Sylvaneth, since anything looks big compared to halflings, but I don't think they would measure up to the other big guy models.

LOTR Ent or Kurnoth Hunter.

The Ent is kinda big but you can chop him up to make him shorter. Wouldn't be too hard.

No way i'm buying a new kit of kurnoths just as a temporary placeholder. I'm hoping I can grab a couple unbuilt dryads cheap and use those. All that matters to me is that they are taller than the halflings by a bit. As for their ST6, i'll just tell people it's woodland magic strength. Plus dryads are small enough to lie face up/down.

I have Kurnoths I used. It’s nice because one box gives you enough for two regular plus the Star Player.

All I can say is I'm really *really* glad I didn't drop $60+ buying the blood bowl referees off ebay. I didn't think they'd remake them again so its a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.

On the other hand, the female models pose is kinda...meh. What's with the karate chop/ palm strike?

Yeah after wood elves they need to turn around and do one of the more interesting teams, whether it's vamps/lizardmen/chorfs/norse etc. I have little to no desire to see ogres or khemri anytime soon either.

edit: also bummed they didn't do a painting guide for halflings, they did one for about every other team cept for dwarfs. I wanted to see duncan paint those lil buggers.

Nah, I'm sure that the next tea will be as equally uninteresting for me as the previous ones, so the chances of any kind of Lizardman, human (be it norse, amazons, or my pipe dream of a cool Tilean Calccio Fiorentino style team will never materialize, except in resin, a material which i wont buy.)

I love Woodies, so no complaint there. Elf Union before Lizardmen should be straight up criminal, though.

Everyone wants Lizards.

The reason for Elven Union coming out so early in the cycle was apparently (as per Andy Hoare etc. when asked) because the higher ups at GW were wanting to be pretty cautions with the BB2016 releases as there was some hesitation/scepticism that it might not do as well as it needed to in order to warrant multiple plastic releases and they only produced limited runs of a lot of other stuff (hence why everything used to by out of stock for so bloody long). The SG team decided to work around this by using one of their limited plastic slots to get the more 'generic' Elven Union team out and then they could produce Resin kits via FW to convert them into Dark Elves, Wood Elves etc. Obviously BB2016 sold well beyond their expectations and they've been playing catch up ever since; making all the teams in plastic meant they took longer to come out overall but I'd imagine most people would consider it better long term. Dark Elves coming out not that long after was something of shock considering they'd have been developed very late (especially considering that particular sculptor was a newer hire and they were his first plastic kit: it shows).

No complaint about Elf Union here, it is the best GW Blood Bowl kit ever made. The idea of interchangeable part is simply brilliant.

Only issue I have with elven union is the small contact point on the one foot poses. And no mohawks, some of their hair isn't very well sculpted. The ones in BB2 had a more cyber elf look and more distinct positionals. It still bugs me that I have to fill the slots in the bases too...just extra needless work.

Yeah, the hair is quite fragile, and it being flow into a direction make swapping them around can look quite odd. Keep them short and sporty would be a better choice.

Well, the Nurgle team have 0 peg on their leg, making slot base completely pointless, the hole for ball can be easily made with drill or knife.

From talfantasyfootball *Doesn't look to be any positional changes
*release is around a month (though take that to possibly be up to 2 months)
*still commited to 4 releases this year
*will be a *plastic* Treeman- but this will be a little while yet as was originally geared up to be resin
*several new star players - including a fae, a
zoat and what i assume is a young Treeman (3MA 5ST does not have take root)
*pitch, team cards, dice (with a wood effect)and spike as standard. The pitch looks lovely with a spring / autumn theme on each side

missed the last few minutes but did not see mention of the inducement cards revealed at Warhammer Fest

So they have done Undead this year and Halflings? The Wood Elves will have to release pretty quick and then another team after that to make the 4/year goal.

‘Zons, Lizards or what, I wonder?

They said there won't be as long a gap between the Halflings and the Wood Elves as there was before the Halflings.
