A few days ago, another box from Forge World showed up on my doorstep. I went through the box and took some pictures. I intended to write this post at that point, but then I unexpectedly had to drive to my home town to say goodbye to a very old friend. Now I am back at the lair, and I can finally write this post. So, without further delay… Goblin Secret Weapons!
OK, I know what you are thinking. How can this be June Unboxings Part 4? July is here, June is gone! Well, you are right, and June is gone, but I I still have one blister left to open from my June shipment. The Grombrindal and Black Gobbo blister! This double pack was released to help celebrate the 40th anniversary of White Dwarf magazine.
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.
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.
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!
Well, the goblin secret weapons aren’t so secret anymore. Today Warhammer Community unveiled the upcoming Forge World goblin secret weapon players for Blood Bowl. There will be a bomber, chainsaw player and ball-and-chain looney. The chainsaw player was teased previously in the Rumor Engine, with many correctly guessing the hooked chain blade to be a bad-moon shaped chainsaw.
No sign of a pogo stick player yet.
The secret weapon minis will go on sale first at this month’s Warhammer Fest event, no word on pre-order or release date.
