Normally, Blood Bowl teams are kept to just a single race. You have the Human team and you have the Skaven team and you have the Lizardman team. But what if you mixed some of those groups together and made a team out of them? That’s what we’ve got here with a pair of new Blood Bowl teams that you can order now from the GW website.
From the website:
Mixed hybrid teams are legal again under NAF rules, formed from a mix of different races and cultures. The great cities of the Old World have produced some fantastic teams, and the Middenheim Marauders are an excellent example. The combination of Human, Dwarf and Halfling players creates new strengths and eliminates old weaknesses to forge something greater than the sum of its parts.
Old World Alliance teams are assembled from players across a variety of races and cultures, united by the place they call home. Each of them brings their own skills – Human flexibility, Dwarf toughness and strength, and Halfling, er… greasy slipperiness and cooking skills. If you’re looking for challenges as well as tactical opportunities, look no further than the Middenheim Maulers.
This multipart plastic kit contains components from the existing Human, Dwarf and Halfling team sets. You’ll be able to build 3 unique Halfling Hopefuls, 3 Human Linemen, 1 Human Blitzer, 1 Human Thrower, 3 Dwarf Blockers, 1 Dwarf Runner, 1 Dwarf Blitzer, and 1 Dwarf Troll Slayer. You’ll also get 3 Dwarf and 3 Human balls, plus one each of Human and Dwarf team tokens and turn markers! You’ll also find an Old World Alliance transfer sheet and 15 32mm Blood Bowl bases.

Mixed hybrid teams are legal again under NAF rules, formed from a mix of different races and cultures. Skaven and Goblin teams are affectionately called the Underworld Denizens, and the Underworld Creepers are one of the most popular examples. The combination of players from both races joins the best of both worlds, spawning new strengths and eliminating old weaknesses to create something greater than the sum of its parts.
Goblin and Skaven players have little in common besides their size and subterranean homes, but as a team they can put together a winning combination of positions and players. They’re a lot of fun to play and you’ll enjoy a dizzying variety of fresh tactics and plays, whilst keeping your opponents on their toes.
This multipart plastic kit contains components from both the existing Goblin and Skaven team sets. You’ll be able to build 6 unique Goblins with interchangeable heads, 3 Skaven Linemen, 1 Skaven Blitzer, 1 Skaven Thrower, and 1 Skaven Gutter Runner. Alongside the players, the set contains 3 Goblin and 3 Skaven balls, plus one of each team’s tokens and turn markers! You’ll also find an Underworld Denizens transfer sheet and 12 32mm Blood Bowl bases.
The rules to use Underworld Denizens teams in your games of Blood Bowl can be found in Spike! Journal Issue 9.
