Games Workshop Pre-Order Preview: The Norsca Rampagers are Coming

Blood Bowl is the highlight for next week’s pre-orders from Games Workshop and Forge World.

The Norsca Rampagers are coming. The Blood Bowl team is an update to the classic Norse with new positionals and more! Though Berserkers, frenzied Ulfwerners punch holes in the opposition while the Valkyries score! Then there’s Beer Boars who give the team a mid-match pick-me-up.

You can enhance your games with the Norse Team Card Pack as well as the Norse Team Dice. There’s also the Norse Pitch and Dugout which is double-sided and brings games home to the frozen lands. There’s special rules for playing on an icy surface!

What’s a team without Star Players and Big Guys? Forge World has you covered!

The Yhetee adds more punching power to your team.


Skrorg Snowpelt is a bit more stylish, looking good while ripping the arms off of opposing players. He can inspire your team and pump up the crowds.

Thorsson Stoutmead has an arm on him. It’s good for throwing barrels of beer at opposing players.

Ivar Eriksson comes with Block, Guard, and Tackle which will absolutely come in handy for games.
