    Games Workshop Blood Bowl Release Timeline (lots of gaps)

    This is a list I’ve compiled (with help) of Games Workshop’s releases over the years, split by game system. I stress this is a work in progress; it is far from complete or comprehensive. It’s based on a mix of info from these forums, fellow forumites help and my White Dwarf collection.

    I'm sure there will be errors: things mis-categorised as plastic/metal kits, models in the wrong month, and some just plain missing. If you can help out with further info to improve this it would be greatly appreciated

    Some guidelines for inclusion:

    • Magazines, books, terrain, tools, paints and so on aren’t included: this is focused on models alone.

    • Limited Edition models are a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to inclusion, I’m sure I have a lot of gaps with these, but they’re not strictly excluded or anything. I haven’t included models solely released within the big army sets (usually a standard bearer).

    • I include it in brackets when a number of variants of one basic thing are done, e.g. if three goblin bosses are released it’s “Goblin Bosses (3)” rather than one entry for each. This usually only applies to leaders with different armaments and so on.

    • I don’t include models released in starter sets except where they differ from existing models significantly. So the Island of Blood models count, but the Battle for Macragge ones don’t.
    Despite these issues I hope it might be an interesting or helpful resource for others. Many thanks to Tarax, Tae, Scryer in the Darkness, mrtn, gunmonkey, Ghudra, someone2040, Daniel36, coyote1066, Coach, MarcoSkoll, AsleepByDay and ADF for all their help.

    Note on *: I would like one day to give this a site of it's own, and as part of that I was to add images of models for easy identification. At the moment that project is firmly on hold for various reasons, but I'm still collecting images here and there. The asterisks mean I have an image for that thing.

    When did GW release something? Was it plastic or metal? Who sculpted it? Come find out:Fantasy, 40K, LOTR, BFG, Blood Bowl, Epic, Inquisitor, Man O' War, Mordheim, Necromunda & Warmaster

    My best attempt at a Horus Heresy chronological order!
