Revealed today the newest team for Bloodbowl…
Of course Bloodbowl is a game based in a fantasy setting, but didn’t mean I didn’t start thinking about other possibilities as reinforcements for my Warhammer 40K Grot army.
I was always a fan of the old Snotling Pump Wagon and I do quite like this new one.
It has a lot of character and with a little conversion could work in a Warhammer 40K setting. I have been painting a few Snotlings as additions to my Ork vehicles, as well as Grot tanks, so this wouldn’t be too much out of place. Even the players look like they will be useful.
According to this article on Wired.
Games Workshop will launch a new ‘Specialist Games’ studio to bring classic board games including Blood Bowl back from the dead.
They quote Games Workshop
“Our all-new Specialist Design Studio will even be tasked with bringing back and re-vamping some of our old favourites. Blood Bowl, Epic, Necromunda and Battlefield Gothic are just some of the great games the team are already eyeing up,”
It looks more than likely that we might see the return of Epic into the family of Games Workshop games. This is an interesting move from GW, who closed down the previous incarnation of Specialist Games in 2009 after creating it back in 2002. During that time we saw many new releases for Epic and other games, including the infamous fantasy football game, Bloodbowl.
Can’t find the press release on the GW website, as their site is down at the time of writing will update as and when we have more news.
This is one of my favourite miniatures of all time, the Bloodbowl Ogre.
The model was released back in the 1980s and I bought it and painted it back then. I mainly used drybrushing back then with limited blending. I don’t think I used any washes and certainly no inks!
