I'm really digging the Skinks, they look awesome!

Saurus look par for the course, which is great. I'm wondering what the Kroxigor will look like though, as they seem to change with every iteration in actual Warhammer. Hoping we see the Zoat some time soon.

Now the REALLY need to do the Chaos dwarfs!! I mean... how many original teams are left at this point?

With the Saurus' it's definitely the painjob that's lacking. The red scales are really flat and don't look the right shade to compliment the blue. The Skinks... not sure if different paint will make them better, though it must be said that the Chameleon Skink is grand.

hopefully they will release the rest of the team cards for Blitz Bowl with the release of the Lizardman. The game is a blast and it stinks they are not supporting it.

I'm pretty happy with them, and they look like a mostly complete team out of the box which is good. The pitch looks great as well, plus statue turn markers...lots of cool stuff.

They look nice, with some questionable pose, like that saurus on the right who look like he's tripping or about to fall asleep.

Those models are great, can't wait to see the Kroxigor from Forge World.

And the plastic treeman. We have elves and halflings needing their wood!

Considering he's AG 1, he might actually be taking a fall. I'm not crazy enough to try dodging with saurus though.

It would be cool if the touchdown endzone was the edge of a spawn pool, or the dugouts were spawning pools. Really miss the old lore for the lizardmen, this stuff gives me great nostalgia for when I first got into the hobby with a box of skinks and saurus.

They are saving some things for Saturday at Warhammer World when they have the worlds biggest apocalypse battle and showing stuff off then as well.

I wouldn't expect anything AoS/Fantasy related there.

The banner says to check back "for news from the far future" and today had extremely little revealed for 40k proper.

Just board games.

So you're saying it will be a 40K Zoat?

Seems to simultaneously stop them from biting opponents, or help them do so as it's pointy itself.

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

Madness.
Lizardmen wearing clothing certainly looks odd. Very. Suppose it's a place to display team colours, but even then a loincloth would have fitted better (much more befitting the Aztec aesthetics), or just a sash or so. Though a painted plate would have been preferable regardless, this is a very strange look.

Are there two chameleon skinks in that team? Are they getting different rules than the regular skinks on release?

Space Wolves - Alpha Legion - Biel-Tan - Reikland - Lizardmen of Hexoatl - Slaaneshi Daemons

It's probably just different heads, because the chameleon skinks tend to be popular.

They could be a new type of skink, to me these seem like they shouldn't be so high movement, it's just not characteristic of a chameleon anything to be that fast. I'd be cool with them just being an alternate sculpt though, otherwise the team would seem kind of samey, at least this way there's some visual variety.

I dunno, they look pretty different than the normal skinks, with the color changing implied and the tongue on a ball. They might be a new 'catcher' skink?

They look kinda *edit* (not pudgy) top heavy [they look like they'd fall face first with a ball on the tongue] to be ball handlers.... they're kinda cute as I keep looking at them though. They're growing on me.

Yeah, gotta be a new positional of some sort. It’s not like they haven’t added new stuff as the various teams have been released, especially for previous under-performers.

It's probably a new catcher for the team. It's nice and thematic, what with chameleons having big long sticky tongues they use to catch prey.

The real question is what they’ll do about their camouflage abilities… new extraordinary skill or a set of regular skills to represent them?
Like do they exert tackle zones when invisible and so on, or do they just have dodge and titchy?

I'd imagine a new positional. Maybe lose dodge but get diving catch or sure hands or something. Maybe the skill the Nurgle star with the big mouth has

Very tempted by those Lizzies. Those and wood elves were always my fav two teams.

Really liking these.

Think I'd leave the mouthguards off the Saurus. Every time I look, I just see braces.

Skinks are superb. They look quite nippy and fragile. Chameleon is superb!

8 teams left after Lizardmen. Amazon, Chaos Dwarf, High Elf, Khemri Tomb Kings, Norse, Necromantic, Ogre, and Vampire.

If they stick with their 4 teams per year goal, Chaos Dwarf could definitely be the fourth team for 2019. High Elf seems more likely, since they're the last team from Death Zone 1 without a release yet. I could also see them going Ogre, or any of the three remaining undead teams.

Amazon and Norse seem likely candidates to save for 2021, though they may surprise us and drop one of them sooner.

No idea what their priorities are, at this point, so who knows? Either way, if they keep up with dropping 4 teams per year, we'll have one brand new team by the end of 2021.

I’m concerned that they have shown three Lizardmen and a bunch of skinks. Will this be a box of three saurus and 8 skinks? Or did I miss a list of what’s in the box?

The video shows 6 of each. I suspect we keep seeing 3 because there are 3 unique sculpts:

I'm actually concerned I won't have enough skinks. I love putting a bunch of them in the starting lineup.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Thinking about it more, this may actually be the first box I buy two of. I've been known to run a starting lineup of 3 Saurus and 9 Skinks with 3 re-rolls, and my Sevens team consisting of 8 Skinks and a re-roll earned me this:


Skinks are the best position in Blood Bowl, IMO. 8 movement with stunty and dodge lets them get away with nonsense that would be impossible for most teams. The three Saurus in my starting lineup are just there to hold down the front line; the skinks do all the work.

The real question for me is what do they sell us after all the teams are out. There was talk about a new edition in 2020 perhaps Sigmar bowl? To sell us more teams? Perhaps 7s or dungeon bowl? Seems like they are pushing these teams out faster than they had planned. Maybe they will just do a big book with all the spike magazines in it and let it stand on its own?

I would hope that after they do all the original teams, they at the very least add the Khorne and Bretonian teams from the video game. I'd also love if they added Slaanesh, Tzneetch, All Beastmen & Minotaurs, Night Goblins (with Squigs!), have an ogre team with Gnoblars instead of snotlings, and just in general, more teams, and star players based off of 'The world that was' armies and lore. I wouldn't have a problem with adding in more AoS stuff, like Sigmarines, Fyreslayers, and Nighthaunt, but I'd want it to be it's own 'skew' of stuff that plays perfectly with the old BB teams. That way, everyone gets something fun.

I know it's kind of silly, but I've always wanted to have a team of 'purple orks', which was just a Genestealer cult on the planet that played BB!

Well the stars and big guys are all under forgeworld. I have a hard time believing they will put 6 ogres in a box but I have been wrong before. It would be cool to get a new biff and Bob, cheerleaders, coaches and other odds and ends to bring the get to life. Even kits for dougouts and stands score boards. I bet dedicated blood bowlers would buy all that stuff.

I am surprised they never made a jim and bob resin setup that you could put to the side of the pitch. Just for aesthetics, I use the referee by putting him off to the side as well, don't use the rules for him. Not sure why they insist on making rules for everything, I still don't use the special ball rules .The game is crazy enough as it is without them.

I heard a rumor ogres were next after lizardmen. Kind of a bummer if true, i'd rather see more competitive teams first. If we don't get chorfs by the end of 2020 i'll be so bummed out.
