To be fair, I do technically own 3 snotling teams.
But that’s simply for the pump wagons as they are used as “trolls” in my Gloomspite army.

Could just paint them up and rebase a pair of wagons and I have my team lol.

That's a fun counts-as. 50mm bases may be a bit big depending on the pitch so I can see the need to rebase... and they are certainly needed to get the team rolling!

I’ll just pop them off the 50s and put a magnet in them for easy swapping.
Means I can use them in both then.

Won’t turn down a chance to use pump wagons.

What went wrong when they were sculpting the hair? Looks like play dough. That skin tone isn't doing her any favors either, the unnatural pale in the art is better IMO. That said, really nice model. Expression on the face is sharp, and the 'implied legs' effect works exceedingly well. The design is such that she has a strong two-point attachment to the base so it won't be super fragile and she isn't floating super high off the ground; much more practical than many GW ghost sculpts.

I was expecting a pun. But Wächter is just... Guardian or Watchman?

Is there some football or rugby player's wife being lampooned here?

It’s a reverse play on her background; she’s a cranky ghost that plays blood bowl because her husband watched too much blood bowl. It’s not very good, no.

Confirmation that next week release undead star players (FW)

And if I have not misunderstood, will we have an article about the future of this season?

They're entirely possible. Any of the Legends teams would be welcome.

Don't be surprised if it's Slaanesh though. Just saying.

If we were to get another new team Slaanesh or Khorne would make the most sense I suppose.

Now that they have done Snotlings, IN and BOs, I would like to see one or two more returning teams on top of the Necros.

Amazons. Unless I end up converting them from some Eschers.

Agree. Good amazon models are sorely lacking. Even the often cool looking offerings from third parties are not up to par. And the old metal ones are nice but way too pricey on the secondary.

What?! The Greebo Amazons are probably the best out there, and amazing minis in general.

Edit. Even the new resin only Amazon team from Fite Games is great, as they are wearing more sport oriented gear.

Edited again to add pictures.

Amazons would be cool if they are next, I prefer the blood bowl 2 look over those third party teams though (they don't like warhammer to me). Feathers plus the winged helmets give off their norse origins a little bit.

Wouldn't mind seeing chorfs and vampires this year as well. I feel like high elves will be seen as well even though i've little desire to see them.

Also kinda suprised the Blood Bowl 3 beta has not started. Originally they said the game was due to release early this year. But still no start date for the beta nor a release for the game.

In addition to the warhammer style, third party stuff is often way more expensive than $40 USD for a 12 player box. Hopefully they and/or norse will be in this year’s line up b

Yeah... but it is often $40 for just some of the positionals you need, plus a bunch of Linemen you don't need once you end up buying a second box to fill out the team... essentially negating the initial savings of the 12 player GW team.

Here is the future of the season: Helves, chorfs, khemri, amazons, vamps, norse. Rumbelow Sheepskin, Frank N. Stein, Wilhelm. A couple of FAQs. Possibly copying over some more stars from BB2016. Perhaps some cheerleaders and booster packs from FW. Anything else? Oh yeah, dice, cards, pitches, spike (wizards, inducements, special balls, stars++).

Might mean Blorcs and Imps get individual team box releases though, along with the usual gubbins (dice, cards etc).

Would make sense that the Season 2 box teams need individual releases. It would be nice for the Blood Bowl hype not to die down so quickly, but I don't mind being saved a purchase in Q1 either.

We got 27 teams, not sure if the game needs any more? If you really want more, you can add 7 more or less 'official' teams, some easily converted from previous edition.

Surprised to see starter box teams got spike now. Teams can be divided into 3 parts in relation to spike. The ones that came before spike (and will never get the benefits), the teams that got spike in previous edition and now lost all of it, and all the new teams who get non-rotated spike.

Warhammer Underworlds keep releasing new teams all the time, not sure if that's a good thing or not. At least those seasons don't rotate everything (except most teams) like Blood Bowl do.
