Blood Bowl

Games Workshop is releasing a new edition of their extremely popular Blood Bowl on November 24th for $99.99. This new edition comes in an all-you-need-to-play box containing:

  • 12 colored plastic, push-fit human players (2 x Blitzers, 2 x Throwers, 2 x Catchers, 6 x Linemen) plus balls and counters.
  • 12 colored plastic, push-fit orc players (2 x Black Orc Blockers, 2 x Blitzers, 2 x Throwers, 6 x Linemen) plus balls and counters.
  • 56 page rule book.
  • Double-sided fold-out card pitch (human on one side, orc on the other).
  • Two double-sided card dugouts (human on one side, orc on the other).
  • Two sets of special Blood Bowl dice (one blue for the humans, one green for the orcs).
  • Plastic template set (range ruler, scatter template and throwing template).
  • Card deck, containing Special Play cards, four Star Player and player reference cards.
  • Decal sheet, containing numbers as well as human and orc symbols.
  • Two double-sided rules reference sheets.

Their hopes are to gain a new audience with the easy-to-assemble minis and complete package set.

Of course, being Blood Bowl, you know they’ll be tons of teams, extra minis, and available supporting purchases that will follow soon enough.

While I’m super excited about this, I wonder if I really need this in my collection, having both Dreadball and Guildball already.

Geek Chic is adding a new gamer table model to the company’s lineup. The Vanguard, which Geek Chic describes as having “a design that can blend into both modern and traditional aesthetics”, will run around $3,000-4,000 (depending on options chosen) and be available in sizes up to 6½ feet long. It has the normal dining room table look but also features the recessed Game Vault space and rail system to hold accessories.

In addition to the made-to-order tables, Geek Chic is also offering a ready-made standard Vanguard configuration at $2,500, which will begin shipping in November.

gw-made-to-order-40k-valhallan-with-special-weaponsGames Workshop has begun reissuing old figures for limited runs. What the company is calling its “Made to Order” service is featured in a special section of the GW web store, where previously discontinued models will be posted for a minimum of 48 hours. A figure that does well, however, may remain available to order for longer.

As the revived figures are being made to order, GW advises customers that orders may take up to 28 days to ship.

Among the Made to Order pieces currently available from Games Workshop are some Warhammer 40,000 Mordian and Valhallan Autocannon units, a Steel Legion Commissar, and a 10 figure Cadian Kasrkin squad.
