Blood Bowl: Ripper Bolgrot Preview
Ein weiterer Starspieler wird in der nahen Zukunft von Forge World auf die Stadien der Alten Welt losgelassen, Ripper Bolgrot.
The Smartest Troll Ever Makes a Dazzling Return to Blood Bowl
Bob: “No, Jim, I refuse. There’s no way I’m calling a Troll ‘intelligent’ or ‘cultured’.”
Jim: “Come on Bob, this is Ripper Bolgrot we’re talking about. Think of the sponsors.
Bob: “Fine, but I draw the line at ‘refined’, Jim.”
Blood Bowl players are many things – daring, agile, excessively violent – but few would claim they’re the smartest people around. That’s until they meet Ripper Bolgrot, a star player with a one-in-a-million fusion of brains and brawn – and that’s before you find out he’s a Troll.
Ripper wasn’t always the stunningly brilliant specimen he is today – once upon a time, he was regarded as particularly dense even for a Troll, before a secret regimen of ‘sports therapy’ turned his brain inside out.* Soon after, the sight of a Troll hollering orders, executing complex strategies, and counting higher than three got the attention of the Blood Bowl league.
Known as much for his startling attention to the fine print on contracts as he is his tremendous right hook, Ripper Bolgrot’s meteoric rise has gone down in Blood Bowl history. He’s still 100% Troll, and can crack skulls with the best of them, but any Badlands Brawl or Underworld Challenge team lucky enough to hire him (for an eye-watering 250,000 GP) will get more than just brute force.
On the pitch, Bolgrot performs much like you’d expect from a Troll – powerful blocks, regeneration, hurling goblins about like paper planes – but with the keen eye of a master tactician. Unlike many Star Players, who can only use their Special Rules once per game, Ripper can use his once per half, getting double the value out of his ever-useful re-rolls.
This new resin miniature is coming to the Forge World webstore soon – spectacles and all – so stay tuned for more information on when you can pick up this singularly brilliant Star Player.

Schöne Neuauflage der Mini, passt gut, zu den anderen Trollen.
Ja, aber irgendwie auch nichts, was einen aus den Latschen haut…
Ich bleibe dabei: Einige Figuren der früher Auflagen in Zinn fand ich witziger. Die hatten irgendwie mehr Charakter, auch wenn die vom Detailgrad her natürlich nicht mit den heutigen Modellen konkurrieren können. Die alten Trolle von GW inklusive Bolgrot waren und sind für mich immer noch der Hit…
