Blood Bowl bekommt kommenden Samstag eine neue Grundbox, sowie überarbeite und neue Teams von Games Workshop.
Sunday Preview: Blood on the Pitch
Next week sees the release of some incredible pre-orders, including the new Blood Bowl boxed set.
The amazing new Blood Bowl boxed set features everything you need to get into the game of fantasy football. The box contains the full hardback rulebook, which includes all the rules you need for the new season, and two sensational plastic teams.
The Imperial Nobles team, the Bögenhafen Barons, is made up of Linemen, Bodyguards, Blitzers, and Throwers. They can also call on the talents of Star Player Griff Oberwald and the brute force of an Ogre.
On the other side of the Line of Scrimmage is the Black Orc team, the Thunder Valley Greenskins. Featuring a line-up of Black Orcs and Goblin Bruisers, they also have legendary Star Player Varag Ghoul-Chewer and a Trained Troll.
This absolutely jam-packed box also contains a pair of referees, a double-sided pitch, two dugouts, two sets of dice, and all of the templates, tokens, and counters you need. Grab it now and get ready for another season of blitzes, blocks, and blood.
Blood Bowl: The Official Rules are also available separately in hardback and ePub editions. As well as the updated rules and regulations for the new season, the book contains a detailed lore section with more Blood Bowl background than ever before. There are also rules for playing both league and exhibition games, rosters for all 21 current Blood Bowl teams, and details for 23 Star Players.
Along with the boxed set and rulebook, you can also get a set of universal Special Play cards. These are inducements that are available to all Blood Bowl teams and they’re a great way to help even the odds when you’re playing against a better line-up. From Dirty Tricks to Magical Memorabilia, and even Prayers to Nuffle, they’re all here.
here’s an old saying in Blood Bowl that you can’t keep a good team down – the Wolfenburg Crypt-Stealers prove that’s the case even if they’re six feet under! Made up from a combination of Zombies, Ghouls, Wraiths, Werewolves, and Flesh Golems, they have a really good mix of speed and strength. Plus, with Regeneration for most of the team, they’ll always be back for more.
Support your Necromantic Horrors team with a dedicated dice set, pitch, and team card pack. The double-sided pitch comes with two dugouts and optional special rules that will ensure that you’ll always have home-field advantage. The cards help you to easily keep track of your team’s stats, even during a high pressure match, and also includes 16 Special Play cards. And every necromancer will want to keep team spirits high with a ghostly set of dice.
Also out next week is the latest edition of Spike!, and issue 11 of the Blood Bowl journal focuses on the Necromantic Horrors. As well as everything you need to get your team on the field, it showcases their history in Blood Bowl, fan-favourite Star Players, and some of their most famous teams. It’s full of treats and some tricks to help coaches achieve victory on the astrogranite.*
That’s still not all! Akhorne the Squirrel is also making his long-awaited Blood Bowl debut. What good is a squirrel against some of the biggest and toughest players of fantasy football? Did we mention that he’s sat on top of a mighty Treeman? The kit makes one of two different Treemen, both of which are looking to put their roots down for a new team.
Next week also sees a number of teams repackaged for the new edition. These boxes will contain the second season rules for the team – the perfect way to kick off the latest edition of Blood Bowl.
* Blood Bowl fans in Australia and New Zealand will have to wait a little bit longer to get their hands on the Necromantic Horrors team. Don’t worry though, our necromancers are working flat out to get them to you as soon as possible.
