Games Workshop continues the teasers for what's coming as part of the new edition of Blood Bowl this week. Yesterday, they revealed the new Black Orcs team which will be included in the Starter Set known as the Thunder Valley Greenskins.

Thunder Valley Greenskins - Blood Bowl

This team is pretty elite, bringing forth a wave of muscle and brutality that isn't normally seen in a traditional Orc team. Being more disciplined and focused compared to their cousins, they are focused on winning and that doesn't have to be via the breaking of backs. These Orcs actually like the idea of scoring!

As well as the Black Orcs, this team will also come with a band of Goblins who are also better than your average grunt. Whether or not they are actually going to perform better is down to the Dice God, Nuffle but we shall see. As a different team compared to your standard Orcs, these players come at a higher cost but if you like the idea of playing a more elite squad then you now have the option to do so.

I really like the models here which give you a sense of their brutality and focus on getting to that endzone. The stances all show these Orcs leaning forward on the charge, ready to brace for a tackle or to smash through an opponent with the ball in hand.

With the Imperial Humans getting their hands on Griff Oberwald, the Black Orcs have managed to sign the masterful Star Player known as Varag Ghouldchewer! As you might have guessed by the name, he likes smashing his opponents into a pulp.

The new miniatures from Games Workshop for this new edition of Blood Bowl look awesome and it is becoming very hard to ignore them. I might even have to break out some of the classic miniatures from the set I have (still unpainted!) to try and quench that thirst for something Blood Bowl.

Snotlings - Runts With Spirit

As well as the new Black Orc team, you will also finally be able to get your hands on the new Snotling team which was teased many moons ago.

This team is about as effective as a Halfling team in that they spend more time lying down in the dirt than they do actually scoring any touchdowns. However, if you want to play a team which requires patience and a bit of good humour then this could be for you. All of the players are looking fun and you also get those fun options with the stilts and pump wagon too.

Are you tempted to pick up some Greenskins for Blood Bowl?
