Da’ Red Ones Go FASTA!

  • Badgerboy1977

    Damn that looks good, I do miss the epic late night drunken tournaments I used to take part in back in the 90’s.
    Can’t wait 🙂

  • benn grimm

    Not so sure about the ‘Reavers (maybe its the angle), but darn those Orcses look good! Starting to get really excited for this, fingers crossed they do all the other races proud too.)

    • Ross Allan

      I’ll go get more pics of the Weedy ‘Oomies 🙂

  • Lewis Anderson

    Anybody, what is that football range stick thingy on top of the board?

    • Ross Allan

      That’s the passing ruler, divided into four sections 🙂

  • The_Illusionist

    The Dwarves look even better than I had dared imagine – I LOVE the blank, severe shape of those helmets!

    • ZeeLobby

      It’s crazy good to be honest. Love FW design team.

  • Admiral Raptor

    Judging by the board and accessories it doesn’t look like they made any major changes to the game. Excellent!

    I don’t like the claws on the Human team but I’ll reserve full judgement until I see them painted. The Orks and that Dwarf look very good.

    This season thing sounds interesting I wonder if GW will ape dread ball and release new teams and alternate rules every year under a new season heading.

    • Seienchin

      Agreed on the claws on the humans and orcs. It kinda invalidates the hidden weaponry when everyone already is armed to a degree that they can kill an opponent in one hit.

    • Target7

      I am so very happy that GW have resisted the tepmptation to mess with the key features that make BB such a good game. Super excited. There is talk of changes to star players, no problems so long as they are play tested.

  • BaronSnakPak

    Man, this is looking fantastic.

  • Simon Chatterley

    You know what makes me want to cry.

    They are still Orcs. Not Orruk or some other rubbish. Orcs.

    It’s more than I dared to wish for.

    • Shawn

      Well Orruks are still Orcs, they just call themselves something different on a different world.

      • Simon Chatterley

        Well…only on Planet Copywrite and it’s famous moon Trademarkus

        • Shawn

          Well, think of it like this Simon: Orc is a generic term for a type of fantasy humanoid, and Orruk is the racial name of Orcs in AoS. It does make the name copywrite-able, yeah, but GW can’t copy write Orc. Anyone can use “orc” because it’s now a generic fantasy race. Hard to protect an IP, (hence their investment), if anyone can use it. So, I have no issue with them doing this. Did they have to blow up the old world to do it, nope. Just made the change and retconn the name into Warhammer. However, they probably all thought it was just easier to start from scratch then to reinvent the old world.

          • JN7

            Still lame, no matter how you slice it.

          • Shawn

            For you maybe, and a others, perhaps. I have no issue with it. It’s what I’ve done in my own campaign world for dnd; Orcs have their own racial name.

  • Horus84cmd

    Wow LOVING it all! All the models look and feel so much more aggressive. Up-ing to a larger base size is a good move. It going to allow for a lot more model and movement (like it has for AOS).

    Player aids are nicely updated, yet what I’m really excited by is the pitch and dugouts. Art is fab and harking back to the original. It appears there is a Pitch and dugout design for both the Humans AND Orks. I wonder if it will be double sided or will we see individual teams being package with their own stylised pitches and dugouts? So we’d get Dwarf, Elf etc..specific things over time! They could even do special rules for different pitches etc…

  • Karru

    These are looking damn fiiiine! My only problem is with the humans where every lineman/blitzer sculpt is looking like they are just yelling “Come at me bro! BRO! Fight me, bro!” Maybe some more variety there, but that is just me nitpicking.

    • SupraGenius

      Nothing some work with a hobby knife to repose them can’t fix. I really hate that arms wide open pose as well, but they’ll not look so silly if you aim the arms more downward.

  • Laurence J Sinclair

    Is that a squig-ball I spot? Or is it a ball-squig?

    • Horus84cmd

      yep and a very existential question 🙂

      I like the ball designs appear to have a little peg that can go into the extra holes on the 32mm bases.

      • Vorropohaiah

        so that’s what those holes are for!

  • Beorthulf Gudmundsoetir

    the minis look good, i feel the dugout and pitch are rather uninspired. I mean i love the grass picth but the logo could be better, maybe embossed or add on top based on your team. And the pass ruler is so impractical. The dugout don;t need 2 tracks for turn. Anyway iam sure fw devs will improve this.

    • Marky

      Score, turn, reroll. There is nothin on the pitch.

    • Horus84cmd

      I can see two tracks being useful. One to track you’re turns and the other you’re opponents. The rules did allow you “cheat” and you could attempt to move your turn maker back or you foes forwards mwwhaaaa – I gotten away with that more than once. If you get caught by the “ref” then it caused a auto turn over!
