    Trying to figure out color schemes for my uniforms is taking a lot longer than I thought.

    I've got something blocked out that I'm generally happy with, but yeah it took forever.

    Especially trying to figure out how to use Hochland's green and red without looking like christmas. But a very drab panzer green and a very dark, gore red seems to have avoided that.

    Honestly, looking over the teams in Deathzone, I'm really surprised they included Pro Elves Elven Union and Nurgle teams. Especially Nurgle over basic Chaos teams.

    Wondering which teams will be in the next expansion, and how many. I would hope for Chaos, Lizardmen, Necromantic, Norse, Goblin, and Halfling, though Amazon and Vampire could definitely be included too. I was wondering if they would combine the Necromantic and Undead teams into a single team, but it looks like they're going to keep them separate, going by who Morg 'N Thorg will (not) work for.

    I think we got confirmation that Dwarf and elves where next but I'm not 100% sure about the elves or which kind of elves it will be.

    There also have been interview discussed about addon pack allowing us for exemple to get goblins for our orcz team and ogres for humans, etc. Looking forward to these as I'm entertaining getting more blitzers for my humain and orcz teams and would love to get more gutter runner for my skavens. I'm hoping they release pack with different minis for these or else, I'll be stock buying them seperately on ebay or get double boxes and try to sell the extras.

    I still have my old Dwarf Ref. I find it odd that they are limited edition.

    There's already artwork with a Dark Elf player in the rulebook. My guess is they will be the first elf team.

    JBone has written down some stuff mentioned by GW at the Full Beard tournament:

    -Plastic Goblins to be released with resin secret weapons. 2 new secret weapons hinted at. Goblins will also be available in a 4 pack for use with Orcs.

    -Resin Bright Crusaders (lantern jawed heroic Humans) and Orcland Raiders (horned helmet, tough looking Orcs) conversion kits to be released.

    -Troll & Ogre plastics to be released

    -Halflings planned but date is not before middle of next year.

    -WHW exclusive will be a new star. An Ogre kicker with a Halfling ball holder.

    -Referees will be for a limited time (not quantity) with rules in White Dwarf

    -New double-sided Dwarf / Skaven pitch to be released with optional ‘Subterranean events table’

    -Most teams will be in resin due to production costs / amount of work involved. The team want to supply as much in plastic as possible but logistics are the issue.

    -DZ1 teams in the pipeline are Elven Union & Nurgle

    I already have an Elven pro union team but I sure will get a new one. The old models are kinda meh.
    Might also build a Dark Elf team from some Dark Eldar and Dark elf parts.

    On a side note: The development cycle for the game must have been super fast. The sprues are marked copyright 2016. I can't remember seeing a sprue before that was released in the same year that the sprue was designed.

    In case there's any cross-pollination with PS4 folks in here (like me), BB2 is $15 on the PSN store for the holiday sale. $12.50 if you're a PS+ subscriber.

    I'm seriously considering it. Having played it on the PC, I feel like $15 or less is about right.

    Assuming no last minute results from folks I'll be playing in my local gw blood bowl grand finals tomorrow. Gone 3-0-2 so far in the league so I've got a shot to take first and get my name permanently etched into a giant skull trophy.

    Another observation from the core set: The Orc sculpts blow the human sculpts out of the water. Much better posing and use of three dimensions.

  • InquisitorInquisitor Registered User regular
    Personally I think the humans look way cooler! I traded my orcs away for more humans even.

    The one true observation:

    Skaven Go Faster.

    Skaven undeniably the best.

    Another game of Blood Bowl, another win, and another stat increase, this time Agility on a Catcher, so now I've got a 4 AGI Catcher and a 4 STR Blitzer, very good start. Also have a lineman with kick now, which is always nice.

    That is a near perfect leveling start for a human team. You've basically changed the game for yourself now.

    Now just to get strong arm and accurate on a thrower and you've enabled easy mode. Well easier mode, you are still playing as humans.

    I've further gotten a lineman and rolled doubles so now he has guard. Also my other catcher has block and a third lineman has wrestle. The new MVP system is really nice for developing a team quickly.

    But yeah my development has been suuuuper lucky.

    I crushed in my semi final match, 2-1 with the skaven having 3 players left on the pitch by the end of the game.

    I lost in the finals, 1-2 to orks in an increeeeedibly close, tense and amazing game. Sadly I will not get my name etched in the trophy but eh, there is always next season and I had a great time.

    Working on my chaos team. Couldn't find any unbuilt beastmen on ebay or trading sites for decent prices. Had some bloodletters sitting around, so gonna use them as stand-ins for beastmen. Blu-tacked blank SM pads on just to see how it looks, pretty happy. Think it would look better with some khorne-specific shoulderpads. Not happy with how their right hands look, their fists are angled so it doesn't look quite right. Any ideas of what to replace them with, or just leave them as is?

    As for beastmen, still trying to get my hands on a single unbuilt GW minotaur, but no luck. It's a bit big, but can't seem to find anything close enough to GW styling in the right size. PP Gnarlhorn Satyr would make a great one... except I think it's WAY too big. Thoughts on minotaur model?

    I'd go for Chaos Marine shoulder pads if you have any, might be a bit spikier/more appropriate. But they look fine and are good Beastman stand-ins. The arms are somewhat clunky but not bad and people won't really notice.

    I was looking at what to get, thinking maybe Khorne berserker pads? I was gonna write their numbers on the blank pads, but the skull pads would look cooler. I could also cut out some greenstuff numbers and put them on their backs, like the scarified khorne symbols they have.

    Also, any ideas for a Minotaur?

    With some slight mods, that deathbringer would be aesthetically perfect... except he's the same size as the chaos warriors. Damnit. Every good model is either way too big, or not big enough...

    Mockups. Gotta do something with his right hand, a bit more khorne-ification, and they all need some leather straps made out of greenstuff, but, here's a rough run of my Chaos team, "The Dicksmashers".

    Needs more balls.

    Seriously though, give some of them a ball to pose with.

    Hmmm, what to do for balls. I'm actually not a fan of the models posing with the ball, I think it looks kinda weird having multiple models with a ball in their hands. Passers are the only ones who get an exception... they just look funky without one. However, having 1-2 guys with a ball would add some variation. I think I should re-pose some of the bloodletters too, as they're pretty repetitive.

    Decided to ditch the cape on the mino, and mocking up something for his right hand. Which is better?

    As usual, our thoughts on balls are the same. Less is more.
    For fists, i like the 2nd. First seems a bit too small tbh. 2nd is a bit over the top (which is fine, cos chaos). The drips look strange going at an angle tho.
    Is there a 3rd option?

    Well, our blood bowl league voted to reset teams for the start of our new season, because people had very lopsided teams due to the last season being short and some folks having difficulty finding matches.

    My team was one of the most experienced, with the best stat and skill growth.

    But now I'm free to pick any team I want, which means it is Goblin time baby. :evil:

    Are the league rebuy rules from Death Zone that unbalanced? They seem pretty OK on paper…
