From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
I missed the article on Warhammer Community a few days ago which revealed the teams available in the 2020 edition of Blood Bowl. The article itself was fairly bland with some of the playtesters of this edition talking about how great it is.
However the article included this poster, showing all the Blood Bowl teams being featured in the new edition. You’ll probably want to click to enlarge the image and see all the teams clearly:
So eighteen teams in all, of which two are the new Imperial Nobility and Black Orc teams which come in the 2020 box.
You can see the teams which are in, but several teams are missing, including my beloved Chaos Dwarfs. Owners of Norse, High Elf, Khemri, and Vampire teams will be similarly disappointed.
I’m choosing to be optimistic at this stage. After all the 2016 edition launched with rules of only a few teams, and a hasty PDF was distributed soon after the release with the missing teams restored. However 2016 was a continuation of the rules rather than the re-write that the 2020 edition represents. So the missing teams can’t simply be re-presented this time.
My optimism stems from the fact that Games Workshop loves releasing new miniatures. All but one team i the poster above is released, and the Necromantic team are coming in the same month as the new edition box.
Any expansion to the number of teams will come form new releases, and having 4 or 5 teams released in a year is possible. I’m content to wait and see what 2021 brings.
