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.
Earlier this week Warhammer Community teased us with the new Goblin team and with more teams from the Made to Order service, Necromantic Horrors and Shambling Undead. What they didn’t tell us was that High Elves and the Lizardmen were coming too! The Lizardmen has been notoriously hard to find in recent years and the big guy kroxigor has gone for pretty silly prices on eBay. Now’s your chance to buy them new from Games Workshop!
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.
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.
