I have heard (from a non reliable source by 'official' standards), that there are new Bloodbowl Chaos Dwarfs due out. Any confirmations on this?

Probably nothing, but I just wanted to check.

Hmm... This should probably be in the Specialist games section. If a mod would very kindly move it if needs be?

The last i heard about Specialist Games and Chaos Dwarves was they were waiting to see what the main studio did before committing to anything. This was couple of years ago during a conversation with Jervis himself about Mordheim at the UK GD.

Hope this is of interest, sorry it's nothing more concrete

Cheers

I have heard about a new Dwarf team, but not CHAOS Dwarves.

Rumour squashed :P

Also the regular Dwarves are in limbo, the scultpor was only working on them in his spare time and currently has none of it so barring a few armatures and greenstuff on them, there's not a lot.

There are, however, new chaos players in the works.

So presumably it was a mangling of those two rumours that produced Chaos Dwarfs...

And there's no chaos players either.

Only ones in production/not released are Zug and some new human sideline staff. Dwarfs are on hold at the moment. There's nothing else miniature wise being made by GW for Blood Bowl.

Oh well, :(

Was too much to ask for even one model then.

Thanks for the replies

Most of the teams need new models cos the old ones really are starting to look dated and crappy.

The intention was to re-release a new team every year (Humans, Dwarves then Skaven were the first three) however with the upheaval of the Specialist Games department they were left with very little manpower and no real access to sculptors who GW would rather spend time producing space marines the chances of one a year is pretty hopeless.

However, a company started by Blood Bowl fans to produce Fantasy Football miniatures has been setup and 'evil dwarves' are on the list for later on.

Website doesn't work :(

Shame as I love my evil stunties I'm always on the lookout for a new interesting team.

Worked for me when I first tried the link, but after viewing a section and hitting the back button of the browser I got a php/database/sql error type of thing.

Site is down for me now...

Yup, the webhost seems to be acting up for them , they know and have a call in and are waiting for a reply. Once on you should be ok so long as you don't hit back or visit a different site.

Oh, you can also visit the forum, it's seperately hosted so there shouldn't be a problem.

I would love to see some new chaos dwarves for BB as the old ones are a bit static (but i love the hobgobbos), heck i would love to see any new model for BB, dont think that the specialist games get the care and love that they deserve from the GW studio :(

there are more ugent teams that i feelneed doing, but obviosuly will not likly to be done, chaos and wood elves i feel are the most pressing,however most people i know espcially for chaos just use the beastmen modles and then use the chaos warriors from the box(minus weapons ect) and they look pretty cool, cus the pose is right, more and more i feel we will have to make use of minatures in the fantasy range than dedicated bb modles

What's wrong with the "new" chaos dwarves from the Hellcannon set? :D
They don't look neither silly nor outdated!

I use these to many of my opponents amazement, as they not only look evil, but are also easy to convert to mean blood bowlers!
For Hobgoblins I use two gnoblars on one base ^^
