From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
I originally put up and article comparing the old and new Blood Bowl models. Now that I have repainted the human team, I thought it would be a good idea to revisit the topic.
Here’s the full line up showing one old and one new version of each player type on the human team. From left to right it’s Lineman, Thrower, Catcher, Blitzer.
For a closer look at the differences and the similarities, here’s the each position by itself:
The lineman has a similar pose, and is just larger all round.
The almost identical pose of the thrower makes the comparison easier. Look at the beautiful 90s red paint on that ball!
The catcher seems to have grown the most, and one day he’ll be a real little boy.
Slight difference here; where the new Blitzer stands between the old plastic blitzer on the right, and a classic metal blitzer on the left. He’s larger than either of course.
Back in 3rd edition days, you could buy metal figures to supplement the box set to get the number of positional players you wanted. These days it’s a bit trickier to get the 4 blitzers your human team desperately needs.
