Just had the urge to announce that I picked up a copy of Blood Bowl yesterday (cheers Wayland :) ), and I'm now looking to get a few teams and extra bits for it, so first up, anyone know/care?

My main gripe is the cost of the GW stuff, and the look that no one else supplies any of this gear anymore, so, anyone have any idea where to shop? :) Having the first game at the weekend so pretty stoked about that, haven't played since second ed (used to run leagues/tournaments with a load of mates) so really looking forward to it.

Good stuff on getting Blood Blowl. I recently downloaded the PDF rulebook and made my own pitch out of a flock mat as I have no idea where to buy the boxed game.
For my players I use LOTR figures (again, dont know where to get the stuff), but i rekon you could convert your own miniatures if you cant find any dedicated BloodBowl models.

eg: Skaven Team? Box of Clanrats and bitz
Ork Team? Boyz and bitz
Bitz are a must for me, enabling you to make blitzers/blockers with extra armour plates.

Thats just my opinion and I hope you have good luck finding what you need!

There are quite a few companies offering good alternatives.

Impact minis, roll jordan, gaspex, neomics, goblinforge

or convert from the warhammer and 40k ranges.

if you want bb minis then ebay is the best bet and will be much cheaper, the teams that now cost £30 each I got for £10 a box, exact same minis since the mid 90s

I did get the new metal human team they made tho which is £40 but you get the full 16 players and not just 12 like all the others

Superb, cheers gents! :) I've had a butchers at some of the sites and there are some decent ones out there. Loving the shadowforge orc team ;-)

The game comes with 12 plazzy humans and orcs, but like everything, they aren't the greatest, although they're a lot better than the old 2nd ed ones ;-) Looking forward to a few games tomorrow avvo :)

Like a few people have already said, many people convert their own Blood Bowl minis which is great to see as you get so much unique stuff.

Though I'd definitely recommend checking out eBay if you are specifically after the GW dedicated Blood Bowl minis.

Good luck getting into it :victory:
