The new team was shown off in its fully painted form at the Open Day at the beginning of the week and they truly are looking superb. I am most certainly going to be picking them up as my team of choice.
It’s nice to see a set of Dwarves with a bit of motion to them as we’re so used to them standing stoically still as they await the charge. With some rather flashy beards you get a sense of them at play.
Additionally, we also got to take a look at their impressive Death Roller which will be squishing goblins into a thin paste on the field of play.
I always found them somewhat temperamental and usually a waste of your gold but they are good fun.
Star Players & Leagues
We also got to see some plastic Star Players that are also on the cards. It seems like each of them is going to be available in blister packs and will allow you to bring some famous faces to the tabletop.
Interestingly while we’re seeing some blasts from the past here the folks behind Blood Bowl seem to have their sights set on rookies and casting a whole new breed of star player with the Blitzmania League on the horizon.
More details are forthcoming but all you need to play is the core box so that’s a good start.
What do you think of these new players?
