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 dive into the vault and come back out with some models they’re willing to spin up for you. And that’s just what they’re doing now with certain Blood Bowl teams and players.
From the posts:
Though excluded from official play by the NAF until its collapse, the Chaos Dwarfs of the Zharr-Naggrund Ziggurats aren’t exactly the quickest of players, but they make up for this by knocking almost anything out of the way with their Bull Centaurs. You better move!
Chaos Dwarfs are evil creatures, famed weaponsmiths whose creations are as twisted and as cruel as they are. They are the sworn enemies of their distant kin, but if there’s one thing the two races agree on, it’s Blood Bowl. Chaos Dwarf teams have long been a fixture of the sport, even though they were excluded from official play by the NAF until its collapse. Most Chaos Dwarf coaches realise that their chief weakness is their race’s inherent ponderousness, so Hobgoblin slaves fulfil a vital role as Runners and Throwers. A few lucky teams can boast the presence of Bull Centaurs, mighty warriors who have been blessed with the gift of mutation. Chaos Dwarf teams might not be quick, but you’d be a fool to stand in their way
Blood Bowl is arguably even more popular among the followers of the Chaos gods than it is among civilised folk. Maybe it’s the cult-like supporters’ clubs, the constant violence both on and off the pitch, or just the brightly-coloured strips… Whatever the case, wherever you find a Blood Bowl stadium, you’re guaranteed to find at least one team made up of an assortment of thoroughly debased, dedicated followers of Chaos.
Notably more aggressive than other Elven teams, Dark Elves leverage their hatred of everything alive (and dead, and undead) to enhance their running game and propel them to Blood Bowl glory.
This set contains four of the most famous Blood Bowl trophies – the Chaos Cup, the Blood Bowl trophy, the Dungeon Bowl trophy and the Spike! Magazine trophy. Use these to celebrate your successes and rub your opponents noses in the dirt.
