Well, Amazons (and Lizardmen, Norse, and all the other teams from the Living Rulebook edition) have had rules in the current edition of the game since it was released.

Having "unreleased" teams listed on Star Players' cards is part future-proofing, part expanding the "Teams of Legend" until they get a new set of models and Spike! Journal.

Funny about the cards, there are something like 8 official Morg n Thorg cards. The first from the starter box only states Humans as available team. They either didn't care to note the correct teams because they didn't know the new release would be a hit. Or they wanted to keep it in line with the dummy/demo/noob version of the starter box where any teams, positionals or skills not included in the box simply didn't exist.

Later cards have the correct teams, but without the new BB2016 names. So it would mention Undead instead of Shambling Undead, same with Necromantic. The latest card decks have correct teams and new team names for the Morg n Thirg card.


Yeah I just got the halflings cards and morg n thorg is included, it listed Necromantic as Necromantic Horror. So thats a new one to me, wasn't aware of that name change yet.

Does anyone else think necromantic horror teams should have access to mutations (to represent their necromancer’s ‘tinkering’)? There are all sorts of stories from the Old World about necromancers stitching bits of different creatures together to make the “perfect” minion – why not a team?

Problem with mutations is, best one is claw. So while extra arm would be funny (and also the effect of one of the special play cards with undead fluff/deck), they would use other better ones instead. Maybe some new positionals with a predetermined mutation, but no access to additional mutations.

Btw they alrady start with claw, so would not need any more balance wise. They're already tier 1.

Those elves really were worth waiting for. I would've preferred less clothing on the positionals and such, but I understand that they're going for a more "actual sports team" look with this edition.

If the Lizzies are this good (please be a horde of "plastic Oldblood from Carnosaurus kit") then waiting for them until AFTER plastic gobbos and halflings will be worth it, too. If not, I'll kick myself for not pledging for that recent metal team on KS.

So everything is up on the new zealand pre order page. Looking at the wood elf sprue I see some concerning things. The catcher/thrower/wardancer all have one tiny contact point where they glue to the base, basically the tip of the foot only. They don't have tabs that go in the slots like the elven union.

So i'm now kind of worried these won't stand up to repeat handling which is so common in blood bowl matches. There's just no way they will stay glued to the base for very long. And I figure GW is going to annoy me again by putting slotta bases in the box with these elves.

Apparently there's at least one or two typos in the new round of cards the bloodweiser keg should be 50k credits not 30k. GW still can't proofread to save their lives.

The plastic Escher have smaller contact points than that Andy they stay together fine. Use proper polystyrene cement and make sure there’s no paint on the contact surfaces and they’ll be fine.

Damn, that defies the point, doesn't it?

I managed to get the correct cost when I made my inducement cards. Too bad they only copied my idea and not the correctness.

Still no news on the halfling special balls? Thought they usually came with the white dwarf of the same month or next.

No rules for the halfling special balls in their Spike! issue.

Well then i guess they realized no one use those balls rule anyways and just ditch them.

They're fun read, but most of them bring more harm than good to even their own team.

The reason I ask is because they're not in Spike. So far, pitch/weather rules and special balls are never in Spike magazines. They should however end up in the almanac eventually.

The goblin ones are a nice boost! The spikey one is really treacherous. Ended up having a player sent off and injured another trying to pick it up in a finale. Well, better to lose dirty than win clean!

Maybe it's the paint job, but I hate the skinks.
I am also not a fan of the Chameleon skinks.... Maybe J just like the WFB sculpts way more.

The Sauras though, God's above and below! That's what they should look like!

Nah, the Sauri still need a few dozen pounds of muscles more than that. But at least they're a better base for sculpting on top than the regular kit or Temple Guard. I'll still have to get a Carnosaurus Oldblood, though, for better heads.

Agreed, back to the good old days of ludicrous Lizardman pun names! That made me smile.

These are really disappointing. The skinks look like they belong in Super Dungeon Explore, not sure why they thought gigantic bug eyes were a good design choice. The Saurus are better than the current WHFB plastics but are still too weedy for me. I think most of the new blood bowl teams have been pretty well done, but these really miss the mark. The many 3rd party sculpts available seem superior to me.

Wait. The whole team looks like their wearing... Short shorts?

Are these lizards from FW or GW proper?

Needless to say I'm happy to see them, but the Greebo lizard team just looked miles better than this.
