I am tempted to buy the team just for the pure hilarity of fielding them in a game.

Would a halfing v Snotling match be fairly even? Halfings probably have a bit of an advantage, but trolls and pump wagons probably help even things.

The free star player or two probably doesn’t hurt either.

I’m currently debating the idea of using the pump wagons as trolls for my gloomspite.
One of those things that I didn’t need but I now want.

What's this? Could you elaborate?

Snotlings are tempting because they can have a lot of players on the field. Swarming gives D3 and Riotous Rookies give 2D3+1, so you can field a maxium of 21 players on the pitch. And still have a hard time winning

A starting snotling team will have a lower TV than a starting Halfling team because the snotling base price doesn’t count towards TV for the purposes of determining the underdog etc. so even completely green rookie snotling teams will have a couple hundred thousand GP worth of inducements. So maybe Morg could be persuaded onto the pitch, or bomber dribblesnot because three bombardiers is nearly enough.

Sounds like an opportunity to start playing. The game is equally fun as the minis you purchased.

Agreed. Now is the best time to have fun painting up one of those teams to give the game a try.

You may be like me, and have it become your favorite game out of the MANY games I play. Blood Bowl has quickly moved to the number 1 spot.

I just saw that announced on a facebook group.
If nothing else I am hoping for a spiffy cgi trailer.

Well the video is up...

https://www.ign.com/articles/blood-bowl-3-announced-and-revealed

Biggest take-aways I got were:

- 12 Teams at launch
- Those teams look nigh identical to the GW models for those teams.
- These included Chaos, Nurgle, Skaven, Orc, Human, Dark Elf, Elven Union, Dwarf and I am assuming the Goblin and Halfling teams as we saw those races as well.
The last two could be Wood Elves, Undead or Lizardmen as they have models out for their teams as well.

So I’m guessing that there’ll only be new content for the game when GW release new models.

There's probably enough teams out to fill up a good 6-12 months of dlc while GW works on more teams. There's still models for ogres, snotlings, lizardmen, wood elves, and so on. The game will include black orcs/orcs and humans/the new imperial nobility or whatever. Based on what I saw I don't think lizardmen are making the cut....but goblins very well might. Coulda sworn I saw a halfling in there too.

Yeah, a smug little Halfling watching when the Gobbo hit the turf.

I was pretty sure I saw the Lizardmen in the leaked books, with the Chameleons actually having a point in the new world order with their passing ability.

Halflings are in the humans team as well now, I think. I think it was Orcs vs Humans, rather than Goblins vs Halflings.

Humans, Human Nobility, Orcs, Black Orcs, Dark Elves, Elven Union, Chaos, Nurgle, Skaven, Dwarfs, were all in the trailer or screenshots. Dunno what the last two will be.

Gotta say... the music in the teaser video really didn't seem to match haha.

The game itself looks great, but oof... that music was rough.

If I was a betting man probably Wood Elves and Shambling or Necromantic and Shambling would be my guesses, as they have tabletop teams to go with them.

I feel like if you are launching a Blood Bowl game with 12 teams, you need at least 1 representative of the Undead teams in there. My guess for the last two would be Shambling Undead and Lizardmen (as there are already two Elf teams in the initial line-up). I guess Wood Elves, Ogres, Necro, etc would follow shortly.

Typical Cyanide and their all over the place production values.

Anyway, I hope BB3 is something more than just BB2 with 2020 rules. I'd love for pitch rules, ball rules, variant rules (7s), more in depth team customisation, better stat tracking, more nuanced league creation rules etc. It needs something to differentiate it from the previous game and really going heavy on letting people customise things, bringing it closer to tabletop would be great. I'm talking customisation on the level of the great old FPS Timesplitters or the 90s Worms games for anyone who remembers those games.

It's just a trailer, i'd argue that many if not most video game trailers have bad music. It's par for the course at this point. I doubt the music in game will be like that unless they want to lean real hard on the campiness of BB.

This is Cyanide. We'll be lucky if the basic game works right. I'd be bowled over if they gave us 7s, despite the fact that it would be a huge hit.

We lost most extra content in new edition unfortunately.

So, the Blood Bowl preview on Saturday…


Just the new boxed set or are they going to tell us what’s happening after that; potential further teams and all?
They’re definitely spending a bunch of time on mini previews considering what they’ve been putting up on Facebook (Dwarf referee model, amongst others).

Right behind you.

As posted in the preview thread for this weekend, they have really only said the games they'll be looking at no real details.

In all likelihood? They'll be finalizing the release date/timeframe and showing off what the roadmap is for Season Two.

So confirmation that there will be more teams, Spike continues uninterrupted, and, slightly disappointingly, the troll and ogre in the box are the existing plastic ones. Also, new referee models!

Wish the price would be announced. They bumped 2016 edition up to $125 from $100 in the past months. And since this includes ref models, two large figures and a hardback book, I will be surprised if it’s less than $170 USD.
