Blood Bowl: Elven Union Coming Soon

The Elven Union is getting a full plastic team – come take a look at the Elves United!

More teams from Blood Bowl are coming to the pitch from Games Workshop. We saw the Chaos Renegades on Friday and we also saw the Elven Union Team in all their glory.

Just as the Elven Union team blends players from different Elven races, their armour incorporates design elements from a variety of sources – just as elegant as you’d expect with the High Elves, with some vicious-looking Dark Elf spikes and blades, too.

The Elves are a fast team and great for players who want to go for the big plays with Passing. The Team should be arriving very “soon” according to GW. However, if you want to get started with their rules, you can do that in the Blood Bowl supplement Death Zone: Season One right now!

Overall, I like the dynamic Sculpts of these Elves. They look more nimble and just seem to “flow” very naturally. Time to convince the BoLS crew that we need to start up that Staff League on the Twitch Stream

 

One more team…I could use one more team for Blood Bowl, right?

    Great looking minis! Too bad Blood Bowl has seemingly lost it’s appeal with my local scene.

      Yeah, same with my group… with new 40k, updates to AoS, and Infinity… there’s just no time left for Blood Bowl.

        It dragged it’s heels and made all the new toys forgeworld. Never a recipe for success.

      Yet. Is anyone, including yourself, in your local scene making an effort to get player engagement by running a league, and not giving up at first rebuffs?

      Blood Bowl is a great game for a one off matches. However, it comes into its own is in league play; where coaches can develop their teams and players, have friendly rivalries with other coaches etc… Organising a league can take a lot of large investment time and planning – something one person (or a group) need to take responsibility for.

        Believe me, I tried. I bought all the new teams and books, and got a few people into it. Then 8th edition dropped and everyone in my area has been stuck on that since. I’ll get the elves because I’m a sucker for BB tho.

      Blood Bowl is niche, for sure.

      It is still wildly popular in some areas.

    heh, I am shocked, I got another rumor half right. I thought the pic they showed of the shoulder spike would be for a chaos team. Looks like it was for elves, but I was correct in assuming it was a blood bowl one. Oh well, better luck next time eh. These look nice though.
