Waaaaa, Genestealer Cultists and now this? Why is GW giving their customers what they want?
I don't know why I never got into Blood Bowl. Takes only a handful of minis, endless conversion/kit-bashing possibilities, totally tongue-in-cheek, right up my alley. Must be the residual trauma of the time Todd T. heard I said he looked like a gorilla in Art class and he and a couple of the other guys on the team threatened to kick my ass after school.
...and now his Head was full of nothing but Inchantments, Quarrels, Battles, Challenges, Wounds, Complaints, Amours, and abundance of Stuff and Impossibilities.....

Not a fan of the new orcs at all. They've got with the AoS aesthetic too much in my opinion.

The humans look pretty good.

Those skaven look fantastic!

The new humans look pretty good, as do the Skaven. The dwarves in the background of the Skaven pic seem cool too.

Does look shiny! I've seen some pics of the Dorfs and some of them are... kind of silly sculpts - unfortunately I can't find where I found them.

On the other hand, this guy is a thing:

If my life was empty, hollow and shallow before seeing this post it 'ain't now. :D
Permission to share some pics Sir. This is good news indeed. I now have two things to look forward to. The other being Rogue One. :geek:

Checked out Blood Bowl in store a few days back. Very flimsy box (Mines of Moria style), nice blue dice (D16), good human characters, not so keen on the orcs but most importantly a beautiful board which has two sides, one which is a green pitch and the other an Orc Rugga field. You guys have probably played it by now. Lady in the shop was too busy to serve me as stores are one staff member only now. Glad to see she was busy painting though :)
Looks good but for 65 quid I think I could get more from Guildball which has beautiful minis and great mechanics. http://store.guildball.com/getting-started/kick-off
It's a better game according to my mate who got me into Akira and Japanese popular culture Lol
Still would be good to see how the new Blood Bowl plays. I shall wait for one of my gaming buddies to crack and then hopefully we will get a game in.

@ashmie: Well I'm about to crack, might pick it up over Christmas! I think both orc and human teams look really cool!
