    Blood Bowl

    Posted by Harry on Warseer. Plans for release as next years black box as it will be 25 years old by then.

    I first heard about this in 2007.
    At the time I was writing articles for The watchman and this is what I said in a rumours article:

    Blood Bowl was first released in 1987 That would make this year its 20th Anniversary (if my dates/maths are correct!) There were a lot of updates to the ‘living rulebook’ (online). I think this activity may have been due to the intended re-release of Blood Bowl this year although I can not say this for certain (but I can’t see Games Workshop waiting 5 years until the 25th anniversary).
    This is just a hunch. (For those that don’t know me from Warseer my hunches are wrong most of the time!)
    Aly Morrison and Mark Bedford have been working on new teams for some of the races with all individual players like the new Human team. And I think a number of these are completed and ready to go.

    So it would seem I was wrong about them waiting another 5 years then.

    I later found out I was also wrong about the teams being completed.
    They were only 'planned' at this time.

    But it seems like this is happening now:

    75hastings69 has posted to say Blood Bowl is coming next year so that will be in 2012 for the 25th anniversary.

    He also said this

    As for rules why try and fix what isn't broken?

    For those who don't know Hastings rumours are 99% fact.

    So all we know so far is four nice new plastic teams, a new pitch and not much change to the rules.

    Exactly what the four teams are has not been posted.
    If the pitch is card, "astrogranite", plastic or cloth like the new Dread fleet also remains a mystery.

    I will try to keep this first post updated with new rumours BUT ...
    This release is still a good way off so don't be expecting lots of new information any time soon.

    I love Blood Bowl so have only one more thing to say ....

    BRING IT ON!

    Never got into it first time around, but have heard nothing but good things about Bloodbowl, so it will be something to look out for. Thanks for posting it JVK.

    Oh please be true.
    I made my own pitch, own 4 teams and rising..... God a sexy space hulk / dread fleet make over would be boss tho fingers crossed for NOT a limited run.

    It is a very fun game with it al coming from the wacky rules. Seeing half my necro team go on the sub bench due to heat exhaustion was a bit of a downer tho XD

    I know how you feel, BY NUFFLE'S JOCKSTRAP I loved this game as well. Had three teams myslef, Dwarf, Nurgle Chaos and Chaos All Stars. My favourite were the Chaos All Stars. Nothing quite says offense like driving up the mid-field with a minotaur crushing all in your way.

    this. made. my. week.

    i'd also be one to assume that the Jervis approved teams(slann, pact, etc...) would be getting models to make them "gw approved."

    either way i hope this is the case.

    Rumours persist over this, and to be honest it would be very easy for them to do and there probably is a call for it- the Cyanide computer game is pretty popular and actually works as a huge playtest for the most current rules (Living Rulebook 6 I think)

    If it meant some plastic teams that would be fantastic.
