Scent of a Gamer

It’s Amazons

Yesterday’s skirmish game previews are up, and the new Blood Bowl team is confirmed as Amazons. I like seeing them go through the Teams of Legend list like this. It looks like the Amazon roster will change slightly, as the new team features Blitzers, Throwers, Line players and Blockers, while the previous version featured Blitzers, Throwers, Catchers and Line players. My assumption is that this will still be a lightly armoured team that specialises in dodging. The look of the new models indicates this is likely:

You can see the full preview along with all the new models at Warhammer Community.

    While I am not a Blood Bowl fan I do like these Amazon sculpts and may try to get some for kitbashed conversion work.

      Sounds good – it would be good to see what the sprues look like, as I notice some of the new plastic pieces aren’t the most helpful for conversion work.

    Still pretty mixed about these. Once they reveal the ‘big guy’, it might tip my hand.

      Amazons haven’t had a big guy in the past, have they?

        Not as far as I’m aware, but rumors are stemming from most of the newer teams getting a big guy. Potentially because it ups sales. We’ll see!

    The amazons are not bad and I’ve probably said it before but I think quite a few 3rd party producers are knocking it out of the park with sculpts that equal or in a number of cases better the GW models. It also frustrates me no end that they force you to buy a second box or source the additional models off eBay etc in order to make a full team. I’d be more happy if FW produced booster packs for all the teams rather than just the couple they currently do.

      Yes, I enjoyed the Necromantic Undead box when it came out, as it seemed well-designed in terms of giving you what you need. The boxes that don’t like Elven union, are quite frustrating

        It’s funny you mention the elven Union team as that’s one where I really do like the team and sculpts and that makes the lack of 16 players even more of a pain. I also have a bit of an issue with current GW colour schemes. The amazons and the wood elves are probably much nicer than I give them credit for but the colour combinations chosen, really don’t work for me

        The sculpts are great but for me it’s a great example of a team where you need to buy two boxes to make it work, and then have 8 models you won’t use.
