Since Chaos Pact is a mixed team like Underworlds, they probably aren't getting their own box.

Meh, I guess you can use humans for Marauders but that's uninspiring

They've said previously that Necromantic will get their own plastic kit, which is excellent if still the case.

Pact are a tricky one because they're so diverse, even beyond Underworlds. Technically can be made now but I'm sure a more desicated set of at least the linesmen in plastic would make them feel more chaotic. Probably an excuse to add in all the others as a resin upgrade plus all the big guys... they're a niche team for a reason.

Who knows what's next. I'd guess Norse but could be anything now. We know they're workshopping brand new team concepts for longer down the line.

In terms of which of those that will receive a plastic team box, I'd say "all of them" apart from Necromantic, which I imagine will likely be expanded on with forgeworld resin players. MAYBE. But who knows, they might get a box all of their own!

In terms of which is more likely to be next, I really don't know. If I were the design team I'd be most excited on working on the Chaos Dwarf, Amazon or Vampire teams, but that's me.


To clarify, Underworld and Chaos Pact/Renegades are already "released" insofar as it is possible to construct those teams with existing releases. They most likely won't be getting their own plastic box.

No, it doesn't. You're reading far too much into that sentence. They've actually repeatedly said the opposite - that there'll be models for everything, in time.

All it means is that, as there's no new Kroxigor [I[now[/I], here's the old one if you want it. After all, the old metal Dark Elves, assassin, Chaos, Wood Elves and Halflings have all been up for Made To Order. By your argument, that would mean that there'd be no new Lizwardmen team, and yet ...


What argument? It's a question. I don't understand your part about no new Lizardmen team. They previewed them and I saw them at Gen Con.


The word "argument" in this case means something more like "statement", "reasoning", or "logic".

He's just saying that they have done similar before .offering an old.version of a product before (sometimes a long time before) it gets a new re-design.

I wouldn't expect a.kroxigor this year, but maybe next. I think they need.to see how well it sells.before deciding if it will be resin or plastic. (I think it'll end up being plastic, as I suspect Lizardmen a strongly awaited team, having appeal for both bloodbowl players and people like myself who are just desperate for updated lizardmen models to convert)


I'm super pumped. Yeah, I'm buying multiple boxes for use as Guard, chameleons and skinks.

Metal. It's the old Blood Bowl one, and that was never available in finecast/resin.

I am thinking Chaos Dwarves are next....

I was holding off buying any new teams except for Lizzies and Chaos Dwarves. Of course, I would also make an exception for Brettonians, but I do not expect to ever see them in BB.

Chaos Dwarfs would be a logical next team, they are pretty popular, don't have anything very similar to convert from in the GW line, and are one of the last warbands left that isn't just "different humans" (Norse, Amazons). They'd be my guess also.

So thursday lizardmen will be on the twitch stream. I guess we will find out what the new chameleon skink positional does. Lizardmen are already a fairly powerful team, so i'm kinda unsure about any change to them.

An albino saurus/krox would be cool, in the old lore albino lizardmen were usually rare and revered.

I'm willing to bet the Treeman will be Plastic and the Krox Resin, which means the Krox will probably be released faster.

The only two big guys in plastic are multi team ones. The Minotaur is a weird outlier, though idk if that's because most Chosen teams don't run a Mino, Pact is kind of Niche and Chorfs are kind of far down the line, or...

I'm thinking that the Norsr team will probably be released around the same time as the darkoath kits for a slaves to.darkness revamp for AoS, if it's really happening in order to give us a month or two of Barbarian splendor.

And I would be fine with that, as I'm always in the market more good quality.Hyborian era style plastic minis.

Doubtful. I don't think there has been any real relationship or deliberate correlation between AoS releases and Blood Bowl releases. So using AoS as a predictor won't be very fruitful.

Well they talked about chaos dwarfs for sure having hats during the stream. So it's likely they're in the pipeline, even if they aren't next.

The chameleon skink could be useful if you could level him up to have sidestep and diving tackle. I might not take them on a starting roster but only if I accumulated extra money after a few games.

So as suspected Chameleon Skinks are a new player type.

As also suspected they just get standard skills around the theme of “chameleon” rather than a totally new extraordinary ability. Which is good, imho.

I just saw the new figures for my personal favorite BB team are up for pre-order. The Lizardmen.

What a disappointment.

Ignoring for the moment the stupid team name, i find these new figures just totally uninspiring. The Saurus are bland and the skinks are amateurish looking sculpts. I'm tempted to try and find enough of the old figures to build a new team.

How many years of waiting, for this?

I'm just annoyed by all the one foot poses that don't use a slot base peg. It's the wood elf team all over again. I do like these sculpts though. They could be better, but I prefer them over most third party options and they're plastic.

I don’t mind the saurus other than the mouth guard which looks easy to remove.

The skinks I thought I might like more upon seeing a 360, but no, not liking them. I’ll still probably buy a box to get the saurus and use my old skinks (which are basically just regular skink models with the weapons cut off). I might be able to utilise some open hands from the skinks on my old models, but they look a different scale.

It’s disappointing in the sense that all they needed to do was copy the aesthetic of the video game. If they had of done that I think they’d have turned out well.

I just wish they didn't have shorts. It looks more than a little forced, as how does a lizardmen even put on shorts?

Forgeworld released tokens for Chaos Pact/Renegades last year, so as far as GW is concerned, this team is already "released" and finished. I have also seen GW painted Chaos Pact/Renegade team using all of the existing models from other teams. Would be very strange if they decided to re-do all that now.
