Snotlings are Coming to Blood Bowl!

Do you think Halflings are too easy? Do you REALLY want a (fun) Blood Bowl challenge? Games Workshop has you covered as Snotlings are coming to the game.

Building off of the previously revealed Treeman, Blood Bowl got even more love on the third online preview that took place today.

But, it’s not just fun looking Snotlings… they’ve got a Pump Wagon too!

This team looks like it’s full of personality and will be a hell of a lot of fun… as long as you don’t care about winning.

Checkout the figures below!

The Ogres are Coming…. to Blood Bowl!

Games Workshop has revealed the next team to be released for Blood Bowl. The Fire Mountain Gust Busters and their Gnoblars are taking to the field in a rumored December release.

Along with the team, the 2019 Blood Bowl Almanac will soon be released. It features all of the rules from Spike! Journals 4, 5, 6, and 7, as well as up-to-date Star Player profiles and a FAQ.

Halflings and Kal Jericho for Pre-Order Next Week from Games Workshop

Games Workshop has revealed next week’s pre-orders a bit early and Blood Bowl and Necromunda fans should be happy with this one.

The Halflings are finally here after being revealed some time ago. Along with the team is a new pitch, dice, team card pack, and the fifth issue of Spike! magazine.

On top of that, there’ll be two Made to Order figures, a Treeman and Halfling Hot-pot.

For Necromunda, two famous Bounty Hunters return, Kal Jericho and his sidekick Scabs! The classic characters get an updated sculpt (actually in scale this time) and you can get them and add them to your games (if you missed the Made to Order re-release of the classic sculpt or just want to update).

It’s Blood Bowl and Necromunda from Forge World this Week

Forge World has three new items out this week, two for Blood Bowl and one for Necromunda.

It may not be cute – but when you can tear a ganger’s arm off in a single bite, you don’t need to be. Add the Goliath Sumpkroc, a scaly companion to your Goliath Gang today. The figure comes with 6 components and a base and you can find the rules for it in Gang War 3. It retails for $24.

The Swift Twins have it all, the looks, charisma, awesome outfits, and skill. The Star Players can be used on High Elf, Dark Elf, and Elven Union Blood Bowl teams but you have to hire them as a pair. The kit is 12 components and supplied with bases. The rules for the Swift Twins can be found in the Inaugural Blood Bowl Almanac. They retail for $38.

The Elfheim Eagles have some moves and so do their cheerleaders. The 4 figure cheerleading squad can be yours for $35 and rules can be found in the Inaugural Blood Bowl Almanac.

Killer from the Underhive, Deep, and on the Pitch in this Week’s Games Workshop Pre-Orders

There’s a lot of pre-orders this week from Games Workshop that cover Age of Sigmar, Necromunda, and Blood Bowl!

The company has new units you can add to your Idoneth Deepkin, the Isharann Tidecaster. It is the Tidecasters who conjure the phantasmal sea that allows aelf and aquatic beast to move and breathe as if they were in their own natural environment.

Also available will be Isharann Soulscryers. With their cyfar compasses and dowserchimes, the Soulscryers can map the dark corners of a being’s soul as well as those of the mortal realms, marking them out as navigators and priests among the Idoneth.

Finally, you’ll also be able to get a Isharann Soulrender. The Soulrenders are unusual amongst the Isharann, for they are trained alongside the Akhelians, and are well accustomed to acting at the forefront of battle. Upon each Soulrender’s helm dangles a lurelight, its strange glow attracting and absorbing souls.

For Necromunda, you’ll have multiple choices to add to your game.

Gang War 3 will expand your game with new rules, weapons, units, and missions. The 90-page book contains rules for ganges of House Van Saar, expanded house equipment lists, Brutes, the Traind Post, Status Items, Arbitrated Campaigns, multiplayers games, new Hired Guns, and more scenery to check out.

You’ll also be able to add the high-tech Van Saar to the Underhive. House Van Saar is the technological powerhouse of Necromunda, its artisans and armourers creating the finest weapons and wargear of all the clans. Their staggering power, however, is built around a dark secret – flaws in their understanding of technology that bathe them in radiation and slowly kill them from within.

Also out will be dice and cards.

Finally, Blood Bowl has a few releases.

It’s Chaos on the field with the debut of the Doom Lords. The exact identity of the owner of the Doom Lords is unknown – he is referred to commonly as ‘The Overfiend’. When establishing his team, the Overfiend cut no corners. He hired the best coach money could buy and equipped him with the best assistants, entered into numerous dark pacts with various daemonic entities and searched long and hard for the best players who could be coerced into joining him. Those who refused soon learned that the Overfiend has a very literal interpretation of the term ‘headhunting’…

Also, Spike! Journal, a new periodical that’s a must for every coach with new rules, advice, and more.

Finally, there’s Star Player cards to help every manager.

And what’s Blood Bowl without dice!?
