FW: New Blood Bowl Players Join The Fray

Forge World unleashes some new Star Player potential on your games of Blood Bowl!

via Forge World

Griff Oberwald £18

Oberwald’s qualities are those of the classic Blood Bowl hero. He’s tall, superfit and strong, with a grace and co-ordination that can leave most other players standing. Instantly recognisable across a murky Blood Bowl field by the splattering of gore across his kit, Oberwald cuts a very dashing figure and it’s no surprise the girls go wild when he has the ball in his capable hands.

The very peak of square-jawed, sculpted manliness, the world-famous Griff Oberwald and his excellent quiff can be added to any Human Blood Bowl team. He’s clad in just enough armour to protect his vitals, while leaving him free to run as quickly as possible, and his sneering face (covered with a helmet or not; your choice) and knuckledusters show he definitely means business on the pitch. Rules for fielding Griff Oberwald are found as a Star Player card in the Blood Bowl boxed games, as well as in Blood Bowl Death Zone Season One.

This resin kit comprises 6 components, and includes 2 32mm round bases, one featuring a hole to slot a ball into, indicating possession of the ball in your games of Blood Bowl.

Rat Ogre £20

When Skaven teams want to add a bit of punch to their line-up, the most popular option is to recruit a Rat Ogre. Created through an unholy combination of selective breeding, dark sorcery and warpstone-enhanced surgery, these monstrous brutes stand twice the height of their team-mates. Their crushing fists, razor-sharp fangs and single-minded devotion to slaughtering anything that isn’t wearing their team’s colours make them a real asset on the pitch. Coaches should be warned that training a rat ogre to pick up a ball is unlikely to go well, and indeed, getting one to do anything other than rip opposing players to shreds is always going to be a challenge. But then, that’s what the rest of the team’s for, right?

Field the Rat Ogre as a Big Guy for any Skaven team with this resin kit. Bursting out of his armour, muscular frame covered in raised welts and gashes, this is a miniature that truly means business; from his eager claws to the sharp blades tied haphazardly to his tail. His rules are available in Blood Bowl Death Zone Season One.

The 9-component resin kit includes 2 32mm round bases, one featuring a hole to slot a ball into, indicating possession of the ball in your games of Blood Bowl.

 

The All Star Reikland Reavers £56

 

Blood Bowl Star Player Collection £74

Is it just me or do Griff has an air of authority to him…

 

Griff Oberwald – He is the law.

  • Beefcake the mighty

    They resisted the urge to add a space marine for far longer than they usually do. I admire their restraint.

    • YetAnotherFacelessMan

      The hell you talking about? Ain’t no space marines here. Are you perhaps talking about a golden eagle on GRIFF FREAKING OBERWALD? Kids these days…

      • Dan Brugman

        It’s popular these days to accuse GW of only making space marines, even if that means ignorantly making accusations against a model who’s had various sculpts since like 1988 or so.

  • el_tigre

    I like the rat ogre far better than the regular, looks all kinds of mean.

  • orionburn

    Glad they gave two heads for Griff. Much prefer the option for the helmet.

  • Paweł Dąbrowski

    Ratogr looks meh…. pity.

  • Commissar Molotov

    They look almost…cartoony.

  • Gunther Clone C

    The rate ogre look like it may be leaning just too far forward for tipping…having PTSD flashback of Hormogaunts.

  • Griff Oberwald looks cool but the Rat Ogre looks odd to me. I think the thing most wrong with it is there is no fur that I can see. Also I don’t think the paint job/style suits it at all.

    • twincast

      Overall I like the rat ogre a lot, but I find its lack of fur disturbing.

      • Severius_Tolluck

        Never seen a hairless lab rat before? You can also just paint it as if it had fur! However I do agree he could have been better. I am making my own out of the spare one from screaming bell kit. Will see where that takes me.

  • Severius_Tolluck

    LOL the Dredd comment was exactly what I was thinking when I saw him at first.
