    Bloodbowl is live

    I thought this deserved it's own thread.
    GW opened up their official Blood Bowl Facebook page a couple of days afo and showcased a painted Orc (Not Orruk, so it's hopefully not set in AOS setting)
    It's really great to see this classic game coming back to life, and also to see GW connecting with their fans again.
    Not sure about the orc though. Not really a fan of the new style heads.

    Re: Bloodbowl is live

    I don't like the head either, the jaw is weird, but, well, it's just one guy, I'll wait and see before being all negative. Bloodbowl isn't really my thing anyway, I'm just waiting to see if there's some minis I could convert for my greenskins army.

    side note: about the setting, it's not like BB was in the regular Warhammer setting to begin with, so no expectation one way or another there. I can't see how it'd work better in a AoS setting that it would have in the WFB one. Chaos "sportsmen" "playing" against elf ones? Dwarfs playing skavens? Nope, not even in AoS.

    The pessimist in me reads 'the season kit' and has a bad feeling about it.

    He jumps to conclusion that the set may only be available for sale for a limited time (which is not to bad) to be replaced by a 'better' kit 'forcing' you to buy a new team every season to stay 'competative'.

    Lol you got all that from season, it says 'the new season kit'. I think it's just their in universe way of saying it's new like this season's Arsenal or Manchester United kit.

    Base is 30+mm so i think the pitch will change size (if they are keeping it on the current style)

    The old pitch have squares large enough to accommodate 32mm rounds though so not necessarily.

    And football clubs don't change from season to season?

    Ha yes true, but I still think you're reading too much in to it I think they're just differentiating new from old in football speak!

    I don't care much for the look of that Orc, its face reminds me of a cross between the GW Ogres and the Mantic Orcs.

    They don't swap out the whole team, no.

    Really not fan of sculpting.... miniature is too angular, and position is ugly and little disproportionate.

    The painting is pretty sloppy.

    Paitning is very poor, but I agree that head will need to be swapped! I'm still excited for this though.

    Re: Bloodbowl is live

    Ah, I think it is pretty darn good - it is good to be critical but I think most of us would be pretty happy if that model was one of ours. I get that us grognards would prefer something less CAD and more proper though. I for one am happy to see a new take on the models. I have never played Blood Bowl but I have heard it is a cracker of a game. Very interested in this one.

    Re: Bloodbowl is live

    Head's a little weird, it was also odd on the CAD preview they had when they first showed it.

    Painting is also a little strange, with the blue directly on the lips. But I guess forgeworld will be painting the models.

    Very cool.

    Unlike everyone else, I'm not going to criticise every aspect of a preview model that exists just to announce that Blood Bowl will be back soon

    Lets see what GW do in the next few months.

    Those looks great! Especially given that I always used to imagine what would happen if a squig got onto the pitch. Now we know!
