I had a plan to write a year-end review of 2020 with all the projects I finished, I even started writing a lengthy post about it that I meant to finish … but here we are in mid-February and I didn’t finish. Part of that delay was mustering the willpower to haul out the lightbox and take some shiny pics of my minis which I didn’t manage to do until last night. Instead of a 2020 review post, I’m going to give each project it’s own post. Because they deserve it! These will not be posted by in any kind 2020 sequential order. First up, the dark elves!Continue reading
The Dark Elf Blood Bowl team is one that I’ve achieved great highs with, but also terrible lows. I’ve taken them undefeated to the championship of Orclahoma (the largest single day BB tourney in the US), but have also gone winless and been abused in a league. The lowest low though was simply assembling the new GW plastic team for Blitz Bowl…this squad almost had me quit the hobby again.Continue reading
I’m not sure how this guy received the new Dark Elf Blood Bowl team from Games Workshop, but he’s got an unboxing up on YouTube. It’s in French, so I don’t know exactly what he’s saying put he shows the sprues and built minis for the 3x linemen, runner, blitzer and witch elf. He shows a Necromunda Van Saar box at the beginning of the video, maybe he’s trying to say he bought a Van Saar gang and the Dark Elves were inside? Perhaps he received a review copy but broke the street date?
Feel free to check it out, I’d like to note this is not an official Wyrd Stones & Tackle Zones unboxing and the work is not our own.
Since it was re-released last November, by all reports Blood Bowl has been selling very well for Games Workshop. Since Blood Bowl 2016 was announced, many people have voiced concerns that Games Workshop re-releasing the game would put many third party mini companies out of business. It would seem that those fears were unfounded, because new crowdfunding campaigns seem to pop up on an almost weekly basis. With so many new campaigns starting all the time, I thought it would be a good idea to start a running series with a monthly collection of current Blood Bowl related crowdfunding campaigns. I won’t go into as much detail in these round up pieces as I do when I write about a specific campaign that I am excited about, but I will write enough to keep readers as up to date on current campaigns as I can. September brings us no fewer than five crowdfunding campaigns, so let’s take a look at what all is available this month!
