Blood Bowl & Doom Bowl Stadium Pitch £105

This is a splendid bundle for all sports fans, yes indeed: a copy of the Blood Bowl boxed game, and the Doom Bowl Stadium pitch to play it on!

With it, you’ll receive:

Blood Bowl

– 12 plastic Human players: 2 Blitzers, 2 Throwers, 2 Catchers and 6 Linemen;
– 12 plastic Orc players: 2 Blitzers, 2 Throwers, 2 Black Orc Blockers and 6 Linemen;
– extra balls. team counters, and bases featuring holes to place the ball in, indicating possession;
– a double-sided foldout card pitch – one Orc side, one Human side, each divided into squares to regulate movement and combat;
– 2 card dugouts, each with a Human team’s sideline on one side and an Orc sideline on the other;
– a deck of cards detailing Special Plays and Star Players, as well as references for the included miniatures;
– 2 sets of dice, coloured blue for the Humans and green (of course!) for the Orcs – a mix of D6 Block dice, ordinary D6’s, D8’s and D16’s;
– a 56-page rulebook – this contains the basic rules of Blood Bowl, a number of optional extra rules (Fan Support, different weather, Illegal Procedures, time limits, hand-overs, block assists and more), a guide to assembling your teams and the story of Blood Bowl’s origins;
– a range ruler (used for measuring distances when throwing the ball), scatter template (used to see where the ball careens off to when dropped) and throw-in template;
– a sheet of decals containing number and team symbols, and a list of player positions that can be applied to the edge of your models’ bases.

The Gouged Eye Doom Bowl Stadium

A hard-wearing, durable neoprene pitch for games of Blood Bowl. Rolling straight out of the tube, with no assembly or unfolding required, the dimensions of the pitch itself are the same as the pitch included in the Blood Bowl boxed game – this one is simply that little bit more striking to behold and, with its double stitching at the edges, even more durable when being transported to and from matches.

Rolled flat, the whole thing measures 890mmx530mm.

 

Goblin Secret Weapons £20

There is a long, messy history of Blood Bowl teams sneaking weapons onto the pitch, but few do it with such regularity (not to mention unapologetic brazenness) as Goblins. With very few exceptions, Goblin teams tend to have ready access to a well-stocked arsenal of unusual equipment at their disposal, most of which is hilariously deadly. Some weapons (like the ball and chain) have their roots in wider Goblin culture, while others (such as the fan-favourite chainsaw) have long been a part of Blood Bowl tradition, no matter what the refs say. As for the bombs? Well, Goblins are nothing if not innovative, especially when it comes to thinking up outlandish ways to tip the odds in their favour…

Give yourself a sneaky fighting chance by adding these unsportsmanlike Secret Weapons to your Goblin team – 3 in total, 1 Bomma, 1 Looney and 1 Fanatic. Each wear quite a lot of armour, hoping to delay their inevitable smearing across the pitch. The Fanatic wields an evil-looking ball and chain, the Looney strides purposefully forward with a small yet perfectly formed chainsaw and the Bomma… well, he’s carrying a bomb larger than his head, emitting a plume of noxious smoke as the fuse edges dangerously close to something of a violent exothermic reaction. If you’re going to cheat, bombs are a pretty good way to do it!

These 3 resin miniatures come as 12 components, supplied with 3 32mm Blood Bowl bases. Their rules can be found in Death Zone Season 2.

 

Gouged Eye Orc Blood Bowl Neoprene Pitch £40

Covered in ruts, ditches, debris and, well, gouges, the Doom Bowl is notorious as the place where many a plucky Blood Bowl team’s dreams have been stomped flat by a roaring line of belligerent orcs. Those who have survived the baleful gaze of the eye placed in the centre are often permanently changed by the experience – it’s a brave player indeed who returns to this pitch.

This is a hard-wearing, durable neoprene pitch for games of Blood Bowl. Rolling straight out of the tube, with no assembly or unfolding required, the dimensions of the pitch itself are the same as the pitch included in the Blood Bowl boxed game – this one is simply that little bit more striking to behold and, with its double stitching at the edges, even more durable when being transported to and from matches.

Rolled flat, the whole thing measures 890mm x 530mm.

 

Blood Bowl: Orcland Raiders Team £32

The Raiders started out as the Severed Heads, but changed their name following a relocation to Orcland after financial trouble. Under the fierce coaching of Ogre ex-torturer Cruel-Eye, the Orcland Raiders won the first Blood Bowl Open Championship, and they are now looking for their second open title.

Field the Orcland Raiders on your Blood Bowl pitch with this resin and plastic kit – in it, you’ll find a plastic Orc team (actually the Gouged Eye, but who’s counting?) and the resin components needed to upgrade them into the Orcland Raiders. These components simply replace their plastic equivalents, with the arms, heads and armoured shoulder pads giving you that authentic Orcland Raiders look with a minimum of fuss.

 

There are also 2 coins and 2 markers included. In all, the kit comes as 76 components – 40 plastic, 36 resin – and includes 12 32mm Blood Bowl bases.

The Scarscrag Snivellers with Secret Weapons £40

Goblins don’t seem like they should be able to last any time at all on the Blood Bowl pitch – how do they do it? Well, by tipping the odds in their favour with the use of Secret Weapons. They’ve got a lot of them, and they’re not shy about sending them out…

This bundle will give you a Goblin team with a fighting chance – in it, you’ll receive the Scarcrag Snivelers: 12 plastic multi-part Goblins, featuring 6 pairs of unique bodies and 7 pairs of unique heads, with 6 Goblin team balls, featuring the kind of dirty tricks the Scarcrag Snivellers frown upon – 2 deflated, 2 with Goblins stuck in them and 2 stuffed with dynamite – 2 turn counters and 2 double-sided team tokens.

There’s also a set of Goblin Secret Weapons – 3 resin miniatures in total, 1 Bomma, 1 Looney and 1 Fanatic, wielding a ball and chain, chainsaw and a ruddy great bomb.

Of course, there are enough bases for them all – 15 32mm Blood Bowl bases in total. Rules for Goblin teams can be found in Blood Bowl Death Zone Season 2.

 

 

Forge World – Bring on the Resin!

  • Nicolas M

    I just hate how they are bringing AOS aesthetic to Blood Bowl…
    Especially when the “Warhammer Fantaisy” look has been perfected by Cyanid for that game.

    • What’s that ‘AOS aesthetic’ exactly? Yellow orc armour? Er… I mean Uruks… err… Orruks? Ah, who cares…

      • Jared Swenson

        I’m not seeing what he means either. Yellow orc armor is not new to AoS or even 40k for that matter.

      • vlad78

        General shapes are different, more blocky and exagerated. Over the top CAD design.

        • That’s not AoS-exclusive then, that’s the new GW style.

          • vlad78

            Indeed but it was more a 40K thing. With aOS it’s really a break from previous fantasy aesthetic. This is why the new dwarves would fit as squats and the oruks are perfect 40k orks and (imho) just ridiculous in AOS.

  • Emprah

    Oak… I mean Orcland Raiders, hah!

    • JPMcMillen

      The Orcland Raiders have existed since the beginning of Blood Bowl. Although, at the time Blood Bowl was released the Raiders were in Los Angeles not Oakland. And now they are moving to Las Vegas.

  • D. B.

    Affordable index books? Well, well, well… FW, you interest me strangely.

  • Mr.Offspring

    Can someone explain why the hell renegades and heretics are in the astra militarum index ?

    No, seriously:

    -Renegades & heretics > 7 datasheets
    -Index astra militarum > 134 pages
    -Index forces of chaos > 88 pages
    -same price

    • Matt Ward

      the renegades use the vechicals of the astra militarum, so it being in the same book. they will most likely have a rule like “brood brothers” from genecult

  • Dennis J. Pechavar

    Death Korps! Yeeeeessssssss!

  • Shaun Reid

    No rules for Ferrum Infernus Dreads as they don’t do them for oop models. Just have to use the Hellbrute rules.
