So, no Lizardmen team? No Ogre team? No aligned Chaos team? 😯

There's a lizard man in the bottom image of my last post, so it's safe to say there's a team coming, and the chaos teams can be aligned with a star player or two I'm sure. But it doesn't matter what they do, some people will never be happy. 😐

Ah! I missed the LM in that pic. So, I guess there's hope we'll see them eventually.

Before they cancelled the original BB they had a set of figures for an Ogre team. I wanted them but kept putting it off (partly due to cost as at the time IIRC the big metal Ogre team figures were $25-30 each. I was just hoping I'd have a chance to play them in the new game but it's not looking too like unless the new BB really is a runaway success.

By "aligned" chaos teams I as thinking more of chaos God specific models (blood thirsters, plague bearers, etc) than just generic marauder figures with special rules.

So, thanks for the reply.

The only strange thing is Deadzone Season 1 has rules for Dark elves, Wood Elves & High Elves/ Elves United & the bigguns for each team including treemen etc & star players for each team but bringing out a new book this quickly does seem a little silly because what happens to Season 1????

More from the open day.

Blood Bowl
Season Two book is likely April-ish.

Plastic Ogre player will be out soon. There will also be a plastic Troll. They decided to do these in plastic as they can be taken in so many team.

Elf Union team is being worked on, Nurgle will follow after these hopefully later this year (October?). Also Goblin team in plastic, I think from memory these will come before the Elves. Goblins were a must for plastic as they can be taken on their own as well as being taken as members of other teams.

Expect at least one Star Player to follow with each team, some may get two. The Skaven star player (two heads, four arm guy) will be here soon. Season Two will have a lot of Star Players in there, some known and some who are new.

Neoprene pitches are a go. The human and Orc pitches have been done as the first ones have arrived at GW to look at and test out. Forgot to ask when these are likely to be out.

The dwarf team is stunning. I will definitely be picking them up. Also, new FAQ is up HERE.

This squad of doughty players will be available to recruit next month.

The miniatures themselves are every inch the iconic dwarven players you’d hope for – a mix of gromril-clad clansmen and fire-haired maniacs.

The core team will be plastic, and available in all the usual locations, with Star Players provided by Forge World available soon after.

Orcs get their first star player. It's a very poor sculpt, IMO, not even as good as the plastics minis in the box. It actually looks like it comes from a much earlier edition of the game. When you compare it to The Mighty Zug it looks like the work of a rookie.
