Blood Bowl


Scattershot set of pre-orders from Games Workshop this week. Though their main banner was about the new Warhammer Underworlds set, called Beastgrave - The Grymwatch, I'm most excited about the new Lizardmen Blood Bowl team. Go Pangaea Punishers! *waves little flag with my own team's logo on it* There's also new Blacsktone Fortress sets you can pick up. I did say that it was scattershot after all.

Seeing as the elves are getting a new Battletome as well as a new Blood Bowl team, it seems only fitting that Forge World would be taking orders for a new Dryad Star Player. And that's what we've got here. It's Willow Rosebark. Thankfully, she's faster than your average tree running through a field.

I know, a really generic headline, but when it comes to typing out all the different things that are available to pre-order this week from Games Workshop, it'd either be a really short headline that gets you to read on, or a large amount of the story would just be up in said headline. Anyway, Games Workshop has a ton of stuff up for pre-order right now. Arguably, the two biggest are the new Battletome: Sylvaneth and Scouring of the Shire books for Age of Sigmar and the Middle-arth Strategy Battle Game, respectively. There's also new figures for both those games, a new elven Blood Bowl team, new sets for Adeptus Titanicus, 40k, and pretty much everything else you can think of. There's terrain. There's dice. There's... I mean, I told you it was a lot of stuff.

All fantasy miniatures for you to pre-order this week from Forge World. Though it's not all the same brand of fantasy. We've got the mounted and unmounted version of Deorwine, Chief of the King's Knights for Lord of the Rings/Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game/The Hobbit. Then, over on the fantasy sports side of things in Blood Bowl, there's Deeproot Strongarm, star player treeman, and a pair of referee figures.

The American Football season is several months away still, but the off-season is when teams make trades, train up, learn new drills, and get prepped. And you can too, as there's a new Blood Bowl team about to hit the pitch. It's the Halflings. Have yourself a look.

The American Football Season is currently not running. But that just means it's time to train and get yourself a team ready for next season. And that's what you can do with Punga Miniatures' Pi'Rats team that's up on Kickstarter now.
Yarr arr yarr! I loddie the hotpants!

Forge World has a classic for you this time around. Many of you probably have a Lord Borak the Despoiler figure in your Blood Bowl collections. But the folks at GW figured he could use a bit of a touch-up. So he's got a new mini out and available to pre-order now over on the Forge World site.

I'm not entirely sure how effective a giant bloated slug-thing would be in a game of Blood Bowl. Seems like it wouldn't really be able to keep up with the action all too well. But that's for you to work out on the pitch. A new Nurgle team, including a new Rotspawn, is available to order from Forge World.

The Super Bowl is this weekend here in Atlanta. That means that the American Football Season is coming to an end. However, that doesn't meant that your fantasy sports season has to end. In fact, Forge World has a brand-new Goblin team for you to order right now.

Forge World is heading to the supplemental games from Games Workshop this week for its new releases. There's a pair of Blood Bowl Star Players that you can pick up in the form of Karla von Kill and Helmut Wulf. If Fantasy Sports aren't your thing and you'd prefer some sci-fi skirmish gang action, they've got a bunch of kits for Necromunda that you can pick up as well.

A shotgun of new pre-orders this week from Forge World. There's new Orcs for your Blood Bowl teams. There's new new House Cawdor weapon packs for Necromunda. And there's Denethor and Irolas for the Lord of the Rings. So, Fantasy Sports, Sci-fi skirmish, and fantasy army game. It's a little for everyone.

There's a holiday feeling in the air over at Games Workshop. They've got a whole bunch of bundle deals for 40k as well as Age of Sigmar they're taking orders for. Along with that, they've got a new Blood Bowl team with a decidedly Halloween feel to them.

Give me a B!
Give me an L!
You know, that's gonna take too long to type out. Forge World has started taking orders for the Night Terrors Cheerleader Squad for Blood Bowl.

Two ends of the spectrum on display from Games Workshop in their Pre-Orders. On one hand, there's the Reaver Titan for Adeptus Titanicus, available single or in a maniple. Then you've got a Nurgle team for Blood Bowl, along with accessories and some dice.

The American Football Season is nearly upon us. At my old LGS, that meant a Blood Bowl season was also going to be upon us. Coaches would be getting their teams out, updating their rosters, and sometimes getting new teams. If you're in the league for a new team, Forge World is there for you, along with a new start players and some cheerleaders for the sidelines.

Ready! Set! Hut! Hut! Omaha... Hike!
The gridiron knows no downtime on the tabletops of the world. The Blood Bowl pitch is always ready for a game. But what teams will play on it, and which pitch will they play on? Games Workshop is taking pre-orders for a new Dark Elf team, as well as some new accessories and a couple of pitches.
The world of Blood Bowl has many legendary players. But few are as legendary as Josef Bugman. Player, coach, master brewer, he does it all. And Forge World is taking orders for two new figures for him over on their website. Get yours now before the season begins.
The American Football Season is still a little bit away, but it's drawing ever closer. Soon, players will be hitting the gridiron. Of course, you can play year-round when you play some Blood Bowl. And for those coaches looking for a new team, you might want to check out the upcoming Naggaroth Nightmares. We get a look at them in this preview.
Games Workshop's hitting a bit of everything with this week's pre-orders over in their shop. There's some new Idoneth Deepkin heroes to fill out your army. There's a new book for Necromunda, as well as a new gang. There's also a new Chaos Blood Bowl team. And dice. There's also lots of dice.
Games Workshop's a little bit of all over with this week's set of pre-releases that you can order now. The biggest one is probably the new Blood Angels codex, as well as a bunch of units for them, including Primaris Marines with Blood Angels insignia. Second would be the Blood Bowl items, which includes a new Elf team, along with an Elf pitch, team cards, and other various and sundry. Finally, there's some new The Hobbit releases, including a Battle Companies book.
Over the next three days, high school, then college, and then pro football players will be hitting the gridiron to see who is the best. I'm sure that there are many of you out there that will also be hitting the tabletop gridiron to prove much the same in games of Blood Bowl, as well as games of 40k. Well, Forge World is here to bring you a new team, as well as a new Nurgle Daemon Prince to bolsters your forces.
It's Friday, so that means it's new-order-day over at Forge World. Today's releases could've partially ended up in a Terrain Corner post, too, but since everything's all in one place, we'll put them here. They've got a new set for The Hobbit in the form of Bard the Bowman's Family. They've also got a new bundle for Blood Bowl, as well as some new tokens and a couple new pitches to play on.
Forge World once again has two far ends of the spectrum available to order from this week. For you 40k (or, I guess, technically, 30k) fans, they're expanding their Horus Heresy Characters range with Magistus Amon of the Thousand Sons Legion. Meanwhile, on the Blood Bowl pitches, Skaven players can recruit Glart Smashrip to their team.
Well, you've had the new 40k set for a couple weeks now. I'm sure you're all just so tired of that and want to get back to the Fantasy side of things... or not. But if you've been playing 8th Edition and had someone go, "do they make it with, like, wizards and chariots and stuff?" then you can point them towards the new Age of Sigmar starter set that Games Workshop is taking orders for. They've also got several classic Blood Bowl teams they're making to order.
It goes without saying that Games Workshop has been making miniatures for quite a long time now. Many sculpts have come and gone, thought to be never seen again. Well, occasionally, they'll grab some molds from a bygone time and whip up some figures if you ask them nicely. For Blood Bowl coaches, there's some classic teams that will be available next week, for one week only, that you can special-order.
