Well they do have three ghosts that are obviously a spirit host on one of the pages. They are holding a banner and eating sporting events snacks.


...well yes, Spirit Hosts existed before AoS, AND they used to come on a base with three of them...

True. But the illustration in the bb2020 is definitely based on current AOS sculpts.

In P4H’s defence? They came out during End Times, so it’s an understandable temporal error, given that was Fantasy’s (literal) dying days.

Please note that when I refer to Rogue Trader background, it’s not a Nerd Flex. I just really enjoy it, and like to compare it. You be the judge of which you prefer.

Yeah. The new spirit hosts came out during the End Times (or maybe before. But I want to say alongside Nagash). Though, in his defense, these guys were probably sculpted with AOS in mind. Same with Nagash, those splay leg Khorne dudes, and a few of the other End Times specific units

Right behind you.


Legendary announcers Jim and Bob will set each article up and then hand off the reporting to Alyssa Avalos – who you might recognise from the recent Learn to Play videos. Sports fans have a lot to look forward to.

And to whet your appetite for what you have to look forward to in December’s article – a handy little teaser…

You might be on to something. What I think are the hip bones suggest a short spine?

I'm not as familiar with the rest of the teams, so it could be a similar aesthetic to another team. But yeah, I'm hoping for a skleton dwarf haha. Could be a cool team. Different races as undead, so different benefits. Hardy dwarfs and orcs, quick skink or goblin skeletons, regular humans as linemen, etc

I assume it is just an Undead Star Player rather than a whole new team? If so does it being in pitch side report suggest that it is plastic rather than Forge World? We now have precedent with Griff and Varag in the new season box set.

Is it a bad time to mention I have a Stormcast Star Player?

He failed a Baleful Realmgate roll and slipped between the worlds, finally getting dumped out over a scrum pitch and denting his head on a rock. After killing dozens of zombies in a confused stupor, the Orc team adopted him as their mascot: Mean Green Joe.

He's my counts as Varag, or Morg.

Yeah, looking at the top of the teaser image that armour could be a flame pattern too…

So, looking at his leaked rules, what are people’s thoughts considering he dropped 40k vs. but basically kept his stats from the card above? Oh and he can play for Amazon and Lizardmen teams now.

I haven't read the leaked stuff, only heard some secondhand information here and there but... seems star players have become a bit cheaper across the board, right?

A few have become a lot cheaper, like Morg, a few are slightly cheaper, several are unchanged, a few more have become more expensive but no-one has gone up a huge amount. Without the borderline unplayable ones like morg actually coming down to “maybe once in a while” I think it averages out to basically no change.
For players that actually exist in the new system anyway.

Did pitch size change with the new edition?

Deep Cut Studios have them deeply discounted, like below 20€ for a neoprene pitch.

Posters on ignore list: 33

40k Potica Edition - 40k patch with reactions, suppression and all that good stuff. Feedback thread here.

No, pitch size is the same. Dugout size is reduced by two thirds though, but that’s definitely a good thing; makes the pitch boxes smaller and drops the foam insert, along with fitting on a table better.

Pitch size may be the same but I believe the tables have changed and deep cut has them printed on the mat. Still usable but not "current".

Can't find any BB mats listed on their site currently. Did they sell out?

Oh yeah, that’d do it; the injury table is just a D16 now and the kickoff table has a couple of changes too.

There’s a section for them but you have to choose “blood bowl” from the size drop down.

Looks like blood bowl overlays are not available on 'cloth' mats, mousepad and plastic only.
