No High Elf teams?


I knew I forgot one!

High Elves instead of Slann on that list, but they will probably do at least one elf team a year, so I could see Elves instead of Chorfs or Amazons, since they are more niche.

I was playing Chorfs in BB2 and they are kind of enjoyable, even if i did get lucky and my Centaur picked up the ball more than they didn't!

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.


I heard that the guy who made Blood Bowl kinda doesn't like Brets/Khorne because of reasons, but I don't know the whole story. Seeing a Kislev team would be cool, and it's quite obvious that GW doesn't care about the bleeding hearts since they made a big joke of it the last time they went after GW, and a big ol' bear would be kind of cool to see as a big guy.

The Amazons do have the leg up in that they are already mentioned on the zoat card, and goodness knows they are just gonna end up looking like escher figs given the current trend in giving everything (looking at you, my poor lizardmen) pants or shorts- giving them a lot of cross-range sales potential.

Honestly, I've been tempted to pick up a box or two of eschers to convert, maybe cut away the one or two high tech bits and not use the head with the targeter on it and we are set to go.

But knowing my luck they'll add some new positional to Amazons and make it so I have to get a box anyways, so...

We may get Khorne. I've known some of their Community staffers forget that they're not actually a GW sanctioned team and speak about them being released so whether that's a result of some internal knowledge they slipped up on or just a mistake then who knows. Andy Hoare had previously mentioned wanting to do something with other Chaos god affiliations and I can see us getting something for all 4 eventually.

Brets and Slaan I think are going to remain CRP only though they may put out a similar concept ala Kislev in BB2.

Snotlings are clearly coming at some point. Sea Elves also get a fair few mentions in the modern fluff so that could be interesting too.

Amazons are mentioned on a lot of star players (Glotl Stop, Helmut Wulf, Karla von Kill, Roxanna Darknail, Willow Rosebark), also specifically mentioned for a lot of the new inducements/wizards (Slann Mage-Priest, Josef Bugman, Kari Coldsteel). They're also fully included in teams of legends and coach handbook.

I've love to pick up that Chaos Dwarf team but...are there actually rules to play with them in the current Blood Bowl game?

Yeah there are rules for all teams! Only team not "official" is slann, but they have rules too and welcome to use on any tournaments and leagues.

To clarify, when we're discussing news or what teams will be next, it is never about what team we can play next. We can continue to play any of the teams that have existed the last ~10 years. The new stuff is either miniatures, additional/optional rules (stadiums, inducements, wizards, star players, special balls, cards etc) or expansions to existing teams (new positionals).

If current rumors are to be believed it's snotlings or chorfs next. Seeing as how the hint to the next team was supposed to be in the ogre spike magazine. It refers to snotling teams and Zharr Naggarund Ziggurats by name (I could see that being the named team on the front of the plastic chorf box).

Unfortunately the next team might now show up until may. Remember the undead went up for pre order last year (2018) around november 30th, and then it took all the way until later in may 2019 for the halflings to go on pre order. I think of wish they'd stick to a 3 month gap between team releases, but it seems there is usually a lull in the first half of the year.

I wouldn't be too surprised by a wait, warcry had a lot of stuff coming up for release soon, and they all (orbmostly all) double as generic releases taking up production slots.

Stunning model, probably the best Star player FW made so far.

Yeah, definitely the best Star Player (although the competition isn't that great, honestly).

Personally, I am not fond at all of this miniature. It's alright, but not great. In my opinion, the Mighty Zug is by far the best Star Player, and beats everyone else by miles. But, as said above, there arent that many to pick from. But even if there were more, the Mighty Zug probably still would hold his own ground. But I hope they keep releasing more figures for Blood Bowl. I love this blood sport <3

That hair seems too long for a "sport" like BB. Opponents would be able to grab it and pull her to the pitch. Ogres would swing her around by it (okay, maybe not as that would require minimal intelligence). Nice model, though.

Gloriel Summerbloom is noted for making accurate passes with her eyes closed and for having a strong disliking for violence; I’m not sure she’s playing the same game as everyone else. Also, she’s like S2 or something; maybe that’s related?
