Recently a rumor surfaced that new sets of Blood Bowl dice were on the way, and other Blood Bowl items that had been long out of stock were making a return. Then last Saturday, pre-orders went up on the Games Workshop site for for new sets of dice for the Reikland Reavers, the Gouged Eye, the Skavenblight Scramblers, and the oddly generic, “Goblin Team.” Having been lucky enough to get one of the two sets allotted to my FLGS at launch, I skipped the Skavenblight Scramblers dice, but I did order one set of each of the new dice. Well, six days later, and one day before their official release, my new dice showed up in my mailbox.
For more than a little while now, reports have swirled that Games Workshop was working on replenishing stock of the Skaven and Dwarf pitch, as well as both the Skaven and Dwarf themed Blood Bowl dice sets. There was even an image of Reikland Reaver, Gouged Eye, and Goblin team dice that circulated the interwebs with reports that a release was imminent. Unfortunately, that release did not materialize then, but if Spikey Bits latest post about Games Workshop’s pre-release list for this weekend is accurate, then those dice sets and the Skaven and Dwarf pitch might finally be coming. They claim that the list is confirmed, and my experience so far has been that they are generally correct.
More Blood Bowl dice are on the way according to Faeit 212, their source states stores are able to preorder new sets of dice and a new pitch.
A Facebook user posted an image showing dice for goblins, Reikland Reavers and The Gouged Eye. Not sure why we need more dice for humans and goblins, but you know they’re going to sell like hot cakes. Do hot cakes really sell that well? I don’t know, ask IHOP, they seem to be doing OK.
Also, if they’re going to do another set of human dice, why not theme them for the Bright Crusaders?
War of Sigmar also reports Death Zone Season 2, the goblin team and goblin booster pack are this week’s preorders.
