News from SPIEL: Ogres (and Gnoblars) of the Fire Mountain Gut Busters

After the disappointing Lizardman team, this Ogre team release is really tempting. I never played the Ogres on the old BB but I did have an Ogre WFB army so these fellows really appeal to me!

Two new skills actually: "Disposable" and "Kick Team-Mate"

"The Disposable skill means that you don’t count their cost in your overall Team Value! That’s a good thing since the Ogres aren’t exactly cheap.
The Runt Punter’s Kick Team-mate skill also means that you can send your Gnoblars sailing across the pitch, while not having to worry too much about protecting them, to split the other team’s attention."

Grak’s had kick team-mate for ages.

So I was re-reading Kick Team-mate and it’s done in place of a Block during a Blitz action. Does this mean someone with KTM and Frenzy can beat someone’s head in to get them out of the way, then punt a runt with the second block? Same with Multiple Block.

No preview of new star players, just good old nobbla and scrappa (that we had for years). Kick Team-Mate is also old. New for Ogre is Disposable on Gnoblars/Snotlings, and a new Ogre (0-1?) with Kick Team-Mate instead of Throw Team-Mate. Guessing the standard Ogres will be 0-5 then.

I think Goblins and Halflings would benefit greatly from Disposable too, as they suffer when getting standard agility skills.

Yeah, there is actually a big load of new content for BB2016, even if it's all based on previous edition at its core.

They showed a lot of new stuff during the Twitch session yesterday.

The only new star player is Bob Billford - 380k 5-6-2-10 Block, Break Tackle, Juggernaut, Loner, Might Blow, Multiple Block, Throw Team-Mate, Thick Skull.

A Slave Giant as an inducement, the Disposable and Kick Team-Mate text... etc, etc.

No. Multiblock doesn't work on a blitz, and the second block from frenzy is against the same target as the first block.

How is kick team mate different from throw team mate?

Basically you need a run-up (takes your Blitz action) and roll for range instead of rolling an Ag check and using the passing template. The punted teammate scatters three times and lands like usual for Right Stuff.
The KTM rules are available from Warhammer Community in the blood bowl downloads for Grak & Crumbleberry.

Some extreme news for Blood Bowl in this spike! A new Star Player, Slave Giant, which occupies 4 squares and has a new Extraordinary skill "Sporting Giant" which explains how movement and tacklezones work.
 AduroT wrote:

It costs a blitz. You can kick a Right Stuff player D6 or 2D6 squares. If rolling a double, the kicked player suffers an injury roll instead (treating Stunned as KO'd). Moved in a straight line (above other players as normal). Scatter 3 times.

Chaos Dwarf made-to-order on pre-order next week:

Nice to see the Chaos Dwarf made-to-order includes 6 dwarves and 6 hobgoblins instead of 4 dwarves and 8 hobgoblins as the original box did.


I just ordered the Ogre box set. For the price of a standard new Blood Bowl team, it's a good deal for 4 ogres and 12 snotlings. I already have a human team ogre so I will be set for a 5 ogre team. Ogres are a fun team to play with the twitchy snotlings able to easily dodge anywhere they want to go. At least until they get killed . . .

Very tempted by the Ogre box espeically since its cheaper than the two (very cool) female orges from FW.

Is it just me or do those look like the original goblin-green-and-flock based models photoshopped onto more ‘modern’ brown ones?

Lol. I guess while they were photoshopping additional models into the pic they decided to change the bases to be larger and brown.

And the oddball thing is, for the splash page on the GW Homepage those models DO have the good ol green bases.. they changed them in the shop, but not in the ad

Snotling team - the Halfling team, but even wimpier!

EDIT: Predictions are Snotlings, Chorfs, Amazons, Necromantic Undead, not necessarily in that order.

That'll leave, what, Vampires, Norse, Khemri, and Slann?

Slann are persona non grata due to how much they've changed in Warhammer lore - even given the fact that Blood Bowl is basically an alternative dimension WHFB world. They could get redone as Kislev, like they were in the Blood Bowl 2 computer game. You've also got Khorne and Bretonnians as teams from the computer game that could easily be adapted to the tabletop. After those you're basically heading towards Slaneesh and Tzeentch teams before you get to even whackier stuff like Border Princes, Araby, Cathay, Firmir, Albion etc. Not sure if they would ever go as far as the later ideas or just decide to end the releases and reallocate their production resources to another games.

Snotlings are clearly coming now but not sure whether GW would release two fairly useless niche tier 3 teams after each other. My guess is we're going to see either Vampires, Norse or Necro.

You're out of luck if you want an 'official' GW version then. They've pretty much confirmed that they won't be doing Brets. The lead BB designer doesn't like the concept and the current rules were essentially fan made for the BB1 video game (and still fairly divisive).

The app that launched alongside the 2016 set had their clear attempts at alt Bretonnians (Human Nobles) and Khorne (Savage Orcs) team concepts. They never saw much table time from what I could tell (unsurprisingly).
