From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
The ‘second season’ edition of Blood Bowl is looking more and more like a major re-write of the game. There are more leaks than official articles at this stage, and I am aware that my beloved Chaos Dwarfs are no longer in the official list of team. Sigh.
However! We have plenty of new models and teams to be occupied with.
First up, the new Black Orc team allows you to take up to 6 Black Orcs, 2 Trolls, and then Goblins to make up the numbers.
It looks like an interesting take on greenskins, giving a challenge but still having the ability to be competitive.
More interesting to me is that we finally have a werewolf model:
This model is part of the newly revealed necromantic team. The team itself has been in the game for a while, but missed out on a model update, until now. The team roster has also changed, with Wraiths replacing Wights.
The sculptors also delivered an interesting take on zombies for this team.
They don’t all the the same scarecrow look as the one above, but being held together by bits of wood is a common theme.
I suspect this team will require two boxes purchased to get all the models you’d want, but this may be my choice to replace my Chaos Dwarf team. For a while.
I have deliberately not touched on the changed rules being circulated via leaks. I want to wait until I have had the chance to leaf through the new book and play some test games.
