Alright, in my last post I asked which mini you wanted to see in an unboxing next. I got a few responses between this site, Facebook, and Reddit, and the results were unanimous. Everyone wanted Grim Ironjaw for the next unboxing. So… here we go!
Last week Forge World put three new Blood Bowl items up for pre-order. These items included the Orcland Raiders Orc team (which was really just the boxed set Orcs with some resin pieces added to change their visual style slightly), the Goblin Secret Weapons pack (woohoo!), and the Gouged Eye neoprene pitch. I am a sucker for anything Blood Bowl related, so I made sure to get my order in early so as not be disappointed.
Welcome to another thrilling episode of June Forge World Unboxings! Last time we looked at the new, and VERY large Hakflem Skuuttlespike. Today we will keep with the Skaven theme and look at the first of the team booster packs from Forge World.
I had an interesting Kickstarter campaign pointed out to me yesterday. A company called Word Forge Games is running a campaign for new Ogre miniatures to be used with a forthcoming game called Gore Ball. Gore Ball sounds like yet another riff on the “Fantasy Football” tabletop game genre (i.e. another Blood Bowl clone), which I am not usually interested in. The reason I am not usually interested in them is because I figure I have Blood Bowl, therefore I do not really need tons of Blood Bowl-like games. However, I am interested in this Kickstarter due to the fact that the Ogre minis that the campaign will be funding look like they would fit in VERY nicely with the newest Games Workshop Blood Bowl Ogre.
As you are probably aware, Forge World has recently put several new releases up for pre-order. Well, today I got a box in the mail, and that means it is time for more unboxings! I am going to do things a little different this time due to the amount of pieces that have come in. I will be posting a new unboxing every couple of days until I run out of new minis… and since I have another Forge World order arriving next week, that might take a while. First up is the Skaven Star Player, Hakflem Skuttlespike.
Well, it would appear that Games Workshop’s Made to Order program is not the only “new” Halfling team for Blood Bowl. Yesterday, Black Scorpion Miniatures announced that they were adding a new Halfling team to their line of “Fantasy Football” minis, and I have to be honest… I like the little guys.
There is more good news for Blood Bowl fans! Today, Games Workshop announced on the Warhammer Community website that a another round of Blood Bowl minis is coming to the Made to Order program. Next week’s releases give us four more teams and one more Big Guy. Up for sale will be the 3rd edition Halfling team, 3rd edition Wood Elf team, 4th edition Treeman, 5th edition Vampire team, and finally the 5th edition Ogre team.
I have to admit that I actually skipped the last round or Made to Order minis. The reason I did not pick anything up last time is that there was nothing in the releases that I needed really. I already have all the Undead/Necro minis, I am not a huge fan of the Lizardmen team, and I have never really had a desire to play High Elves. This round is a little different for me.
AKA The New Goblin Team Unboxing
Well… it has been a while since my last post. What can I say? Motivation is hard to come by when you are in pain. Anyway, today’s post is a slightly belated Goblin team unboxing. The team came out a few weeks ago, along with the Death Zone Season 2 rule book. You may have seen a number of unboxing posts by now, but how about one more?!
Like other Blood Bowl teams, the Goblin team comes with twelve minis using six unique sculpts. What the Goblin team does that is a little different is all the heads are fully interchangeable. This is a nice break from previous teams as it allows for a little more customization with minimal conversion effort. Anyway, time to get this thing started.
After fairly regular begging on interwebs forums and the Facebook Blood Bowl group, I have FINALLY managed to get my hands on a Grak and Crumbleberry set. Grak and Crumbleberry were only available to purchase from Warhammer World in Nottingham and since I live in Texas, there was no way I was getting my hands on them without help. They arrived in the mail today and it is time for another unboxing!
In a new post on the Warhammer Community page, Games Workshop has announced the long rumored new Goblin team AND a new round of classic Blood Bowl miniatures returning to the Made to Order program. There are not many details available just yet, other than that the miniatures for both will be available in the online store next weekend.
