The new season of Blood Bowl is now available to order from Games Workshop. If you were hoping for some of the teams from the older version of the game that weren’t there in the latest version (for example, Lizardmen for me), you’ll be happy to see that they’re here, as well as some...

Some people see rats as pests. Others see them as pets. Still others see them as a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield or pitch. That last group are Ratling players. They should be excited about a new Star Player for Blood Bowl and a Verminlord for Age of Sigmar being available to […]...

It’s amazing how different a figure can cost when made out of different materials. I know that’s pretty common knowledge, but it still often blows my mind. Case in point: Impact! Miniatures and Royal Art Games have a Kickstarter running now in order to make a couple of Rolljordan fantasy ...

Steamforged is looking to repackage some of their old kits in order to do a couple things: make it easier for a player to know what they need to field a basic team and make it easier for stores, since they won’t have as many SKUs on the shelf and in their catalog (note: those […]...

The week continues on. Most of my friends had a really busy weekend, so they’re having a bit of a time making it through the week. But it’s halfway over. The next weekend is making its way here as fast as the natural laws of time will allow. What might help is by filling up […]...

Well, I’m ridiculously excited. One of my primary teams for Guild Ball is getting a pretty hefty expansion coming out next week. The The Heralds of the Winter’s Moon set comes with a new captain, new mascot, their first veteran player, and a new “regular” player with which to augmen...

The Hunter’s Guild is getting a 4-player expansion later this month. The team, that was new in Season II, is getting themselves a new captain, mascot, their first Veteran player, and a new player. I know I’m excited. We get ourselves a bit of preview. It’s not full stats, but a good...

Salute is coming up soon. It’s an all-out, one day extravaganza. Think of a really huge gaming convention, and then cram all of it into a span of just a single day. That’s Salute. And, obviously, such a big deal means that companies at the show have big deals of their own. Steamforged Gam...

With a library of miniatures going back literally decades, Games Workshop couldn’t realistically keep everything they’ve ever made in stock. That’d be ridiculous. But since they aren’t made regularly, some older pieces can be really hard to find. Well, occasionally, GW will di...

When the Hunter’s Guild came out in Season 2 for Guild Ball, their box set contained a full team. You had your captain, mascot, and four players all in one place. Previous boxes just came with a captain and two players. Well, going forward, Steamforged is looking to make all their guilds have f...

On just about every Blood Bowl team, you’ll have “the big guy.” You know, that one player who literally towers above the rest, daring the opponent’s players to try and tackle them. For many, that “big guy” comes in the form of a Troll, and Games Workshop has starte...

Guild Ball is getting a trio of new players hitting the pitch today. You’ve got a giant robot, a girl with alchemical gas-jets attached to her wrists, and an old sea hag. Just goes to show that the various Guilds are rather inclusive. If you’re able to help out on the pitch, there’s...

One expects to see tanks out on the battlefield when playing a game of 40k. There’s all manner of them around. And normally you might not expect to see one when playing Blood Bowl. Well, if you’re playing for or against a Dwarven team, that might not be the case. And this week, Forge Worl...

Well, with a company name like Impact! Miniatures, it seems only right that they’ve got some teams out there for fantasy football (it’s sort of what they were known for before they went into the chibi and dice market for a while there). Well, they’re back with not one, or two, but t...

Forge World is once more letting you expand your Blood Bowl rosters. This time, it’s the Skaven that are getting some love in the form of their Rat Ogre (you’re gonna need a bigger mouse trap). And an old fan favorite once more returns to the pitch. Griff Oberwald has a new figure that yo...

Yes, they already make a joke about “seasoned brisket” in their post. So I don’t really need to make another one here. Suffice to say that, having left the Butcher’s Guild, it might seem as though Brisket was going to be out of Guild Ball. That’s definitely not the case,...

Most of the members of the Union that we’ve seen for Guild Ball have been the lowest dregs of society. Thieves, murderers, liars, deranged psychopaths (ok, that maybe covers a lot of Guild Ball players, but still…). These two new players are quite different. Grace and Benediction bring a ...
