Games Workshop dropped another teaser this week for an upcoming Star Player to use in your games of Blood Bowl. Here we have Gretchen Wachter who is a Blood Bowl Widow who decided to hit the pitch and scare her opponents to death.

The story behind Gretchen was that her husband was obsessed with the sport much to her annoyance. So, when she died, the Necromancer known as Dirk The Abhorrent raised her from her grave and has put her knowledge of the game to good use on the pitch.

She is, as with most banshee types, able to wail and scare off her opponents and she also benefits from being incorporeal. Once per game, she has a special rule where she can dodge and after making the roll, add her strength to it as well in order to slip out of the tightest of Dwarfen cages!

As well as her fun ability I think the model for Gretchen is great. The flowing ghostly look is on point and I like the little touches like her chains picking up the ball which leave her hands free.

If you've got a spare 260,000 GPs lying around in your teams offers then she might not be a bad pick, especially if you're finding it hard to move the ball up the pitch.

What do you make of Gretchen?

"I like the little touches like her chains picking up the ball which leave her hands free!"
