Blood Bowl: Minotaur, Elves & More!

Forge World has plans for more Blood Bowl goodies – the Minotaur returns to the pitch and brings some more teasers with him!

Making it’s return to the pitch after a long stay in the maze of lost miniatures, the Minotaur is back and looking lean, mean and ready to see green RED!

“The Minotaur is the latest Big Guy for Blood Bowl teams, and he’ll soon be joining the rosters of Chaos Chosen, Chaos Renegades and the Chaos Dwarves. These unruly monsters aren’t smart, but they are fast, strong, and very, very deadly.”

Blood Bowl is also getting some new coins and markers for those more “niche” teams:

We’ve got coins/markers coming for the Underworld Denizens and the Chaos Renegades!

Also, making a return is the mysterious Elven Union team:

It’s great to see that Blood Bowl is still getting some love from GW/FW in the form of more models and new teams on the way. They have a pretty big pool of things they can work with so I think this is an area they can continue to support for years to come.

 

What do you think of the Minotaur’s return? How about the Elven Union teaser model? Are you ready to head to the pitch with these new players?

    I’d wish to get more in gw and less in fw for this game

    • orionburn

      I’m okay with FW handling the speciality stuff, but for anybody across the pond it would be nice to do a direct ship to store to save on shipping & taxes. They have got to get a bleeping distribution center outside of the UK.

    That Minotaur would be actually really cool to use in AoS, with some minor conversion.

      I’m thinking that a lot of these fantasy football minis, from GW/FW and other companies, could make great gangers with a few hand swaps to arm them up with stubbers and knives.

  • This is good stuff.

  • Hagwert

    This is a seriously nice minotaur….way better than those over muscled, static ones they have in the beastman range, this has really nice movement in it’s pose.

  • CloakingDonkey

    Holy crap that is the best Minotaur I’ve ever seen from GW or FW.

    Too bad it’ll be a bit too Forgeworld priced to make a full unit of them for AoS =(

    That Minotaur is really nice but the elf doesn’t have a patch on those fantastic greebo elves. Seen some amazing third party bb stuff lately. Never played it myself, is it good?

      Let’s say the hype is more amazing then the game, but the game is fast and fun. I have loved blood bowl for near twenty years now. The new stuff is very nice. The rules are pretty much the same as they were in early 2000. The third party market is actually more expensive then GW proper, maybe not more than FW though. Sadly FW was is taking care of most of it, and were originally supposed to deal with much more. Lucky for us the game beat GW’s Expectations, so they have funneled more resources into it.

  • Severius_Tolluck

    OMG yes, love that Minotaur, so much better then the rob liefield sheep from the latest plastic ones GW did for beastmen. Need to get me one of those!

    Finally a decent replacement for the classic Warhammer Quest minotaur. I really like that there’s nothing on it that screams football player so I don’t have to do any mods other than adding an axe or club in his hand.

    I don’t play BB but want to start, have read the rules and all… but.. elven union seems to be sucky and I want my wood elves to get a new team before I start.
