Forge World once again has two far ends of the spectrum available to order from this week.

Games Workshop Taking Pre-Orders For New Age of Sigmar Starter Set and Blood Bowl Teams

Well, you’ve had the new 40k set for a couple weeks now. I’m sure you’re all just so tired of that and want to get back to the Fantasy side of things… or not. But if you’ve been playing 8th Edition and had someone go, “do they make it with, like, wizards and chariots and stuff?” then you can point them towards the new Age of Sigmar starter set that Games Workshop is taking orders for. They’ve also got several classic Blood Bowl teams they’re making to order.

Classic Blood Bowl Teams Returning For 1 Week Only

It goes without saying that Games Workshop has been making miniatures for quite a long time now. Many sculpts have come and gone, thought to be never seen again. Well, occasionally, they’ll grab some molds from a bygone time and whip up some figures if you ask them nicely. For Blood Bowl coaches, there’s some classic teams that will be available next week, for one week only, that you can special-order.

New Blood Bowl, 40k Bundles Available To Order From Forge World

Forge World is hitting two ends of the timeline spectrum this week with their releases. On one side, they’re in the far off and mythical past of Blood Bowl with some new goblin secret weapon figures, plus a new pitch to play on, as well as bundling those in with teams and the base box game. On the other side, with the release of the new edition of 40k coming out tomorrow, they’ve created a bunch of different bundles for some of their figures for the various factions, along with the Imperial Armour books to go along with them, available individually or together in a set.

New Thunderhawk, Imperial Armour Books, and Star Players Available To Order From Forge World

Blood Bowl Season 2 Available For Pre-Order

The new season of Blood Bowl is now available to order from Games Workshop.

New Ratlings Available to Order from Forge World

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 order from Forge World.

New Blood Bowl Team, Automata Available To Order From Forge World

Games Workshop Taking Orders For Old Blood Bowl Teams

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.

New Blood Bowl, Modelling Supplies Available to Order From Games Workshop

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 started taking orders for a new one over on their website. They’ve also got a pack of Special Play cards, plus a bunch of hobby tools with which you can put your team together.

New Blood Bowl, 40k Kits Available to Order From Forge World

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 World has tanks for both games available to order (ok, so the Deathroller isn’t really a tank, but it’s as close as you’re gonna get in Blood Bowl). There’s also a new Legio Custodes unit and upgrade kit.

Two New Blood Bowl Players Available To Order From Forge World

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).

New Ogre Available To Order For Blood Bowl From Games Workshop

Just the other day I got the new Blood Bowl box set and put it together. It’s been funny to see how the models have gotten bigger over the years. I know there’s even more extreme examples out there. So if you’ve got yourself an Ogre for your team, your older figures might not be so big by comparison. But Games Workshop is here to help with a new Ogre mini in their webshop.

Review Roundup

The holiday season is well and truly upon us. It’s the last weekend before Christmas and all through the house, my D&D group had to cancel because everyone had last-minute stuff come up due to the holiday and the end of the year :/ … But waddyagonnado? Me? I’m gonna probably bake some cookies and just chill, watching some Christmas movies, including MST3K’s Manos, the Hand of Fate. Why is that a Christmas movie? Because it’s in the same 2-disk box with Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. But that’s me.

As for the exact moment, it’s time to get you a bunch of reviews.

Today we have: Mythos Tales, BattleGoats, Murder at Blood Mansion, Timeline: British History, The Refuge, Ice Cool, You Gotta Be Kitten Me, Colony, CVlizations, Star Wars: Destiny, Pocket Madness, The King’s Armory, La Granja: No Siesta, Escape Room: the Game, Ponzi Scheme, Doom: The Board Game, Deathwatch: Overkill, and Blood Bowl (2016 Edition).

Games Workshop Taking Pre-Orders For Blood Bowl

Well, it’s been the one people have been clamoring for. Ever since Games Workshop stated that they were once again going to be backing their specialty side-games, this is the game everyone’s been anticipating. Sure, Calth and Quest and Overkill are cool and all, but they’re not the games that have spawned entire industries creating specialty teams for them. Nope, that honor goes to Blood Bowl. It’s back. And you can pre-order it now.

Games Workshop To Open Specialist Design Studio

Well, this one had been running around the rumor mill pretty heavily this morning. When I first heard about it, I thought, “there’s no way.” And I’d been not wanting to post anything here until I got something from what I considered a “really, truly, official source.”
Well, the GW App has the news now, so I think it’s safe to share.
Games Workshop is going to be creating a Specialist Design Studio. But what does that mean?

Fantasy Flight Games have posted the rules for their upcoming Blood Bowl: Team Manager card game.

From their website:

Blood Bowl: Team Manager – The Card Game is filled with the pivotal, action-packed moments that puts fans in the seats year after year, and keeps the managers employed!

Lead a team of Dwarf, Wood Elf, Orc, Human, Chaos, or Skaven players to victory as they compete in head-to-head weekly highlights over the course of a brutal five-week season. Survive the competitions, draft the best Star Players, hire staff, upgrade your equipment, while gaining as many fans as you can, and you’ll be sure to end up with Spike! Magazine’s “Manager of the Year” award.

This exciting standalone card game of bone-crushing sports action for 2-4 managers was one of the stars at Gen Con Indy 2011; advance copies of Blood Bowl: Team Manager – The Card Game sold out the afternoon of the first day of the convention. Further, every Blood Bowl demo table was busy the entire weekend with attendees eager to test out their managerial skills, and lead their teams to glory.
