Nothing says “Super Star Blood Bowl Team” like having enough coin to throw around to hire Cheerleaders! If you want to put some pep in your step then check out the new offerings from Forge World.

Human players are the best all-round Blood Bowl players in the Old World. They may lack the sheer strength of the Orcs, the agility of the High Elves, the toughness of the Dwarfs, the frenzy of the Dark Elves, or the speed of the Skaven, but they do not suffer any of these players’ weaknesses either. It is hardly surprising then that humans account for over 50% of all Blood Bowl players – so long as you include Skeletons, Ghouls and Vampires playing for Undead teams, and mutants playing for Chaos teams!
Expand, enhance, fill out and indeed boost your Human team with this booster pack! It contains 4 resin miniatures – 2 Blitzers, a Thrower and a Catcher – each covered in detail and posed dynamically, with all the heroic jawlines and manly stares you would expect from these glorious sportsmen…
These 4 resin miniatures come as 14 components, and are supplied with 4 32mm Blood Bowl bases. Human team rules can be found in Death Zone Season 1.
Eldril Sidewinder has played Blood Bowl as long as most can remember, partly due to the incredibly long life span of his race, but mainly thanks to his sheer skill on the pitch. The secret of his success (and longevity) lies in his belonging to a singular class within Wood Elf and Sea Elf society – the Wardancers. These warriors combine athleticism and deadly skill, and are capable of dashing through a melee, weaving and leaping about their opponents while transfixing them with their grace such that foes are unable to react or even to think clearly. So beguiling are the movements of a skilled Wardancer that some claim it to be some manner of boon from the dark gods, a misconception that Sidewinder is ever keen to refute.
Should you be looking high and low for a Star Player for your Dark Elf, Wood Elf, High Elf or Elven Union Blood Bowl team – you can stop looking because here, in the lithe shape of Eldril Sidewinder, is one! Bemohawked and lightly armoured – clad in a leather harness and shoulder protector, gauntlets, pants and running shoes (with some pretty hefty studs in the soles, no doubt ready to splinter the shins of all who stand before him), Edril is a prime example of the sort of cheekbones and jawline you only get from Elves. His rules are available in Blood Bowl Death Zone Season One.
This resin kit is supplied with a 32mm Blood Bowl base.
The Reaverettes have a long and proud history cheering for the Reikland Reavers. Based in the Old Bowl stadium in Altdorf, they are as synonymous with Blood Bowl as the Reavers themselves. Getting into the Reaverettes is even harder than earning a spot on the Reikland Reavers however, the cheerleaders chosen for not just their agility and vocal abilities but also their intelligence. Rumour has it that given the number of head injuries among the Reavers their cheerleaders also double as their accountants and publicists.
This resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble The Reaverettes, a Human cheerleading squad. 4 models are included, each posed in synch with the other – arms aloft holding pom-poms (actual pom-poms, not the scary metal spiky weaponry of certain other cheerleading squads…), left leg in the air.
The Damned Damsels are the dedicated cheer squad of the Doom Lords, summoned from the Chaos Wastes by the dark prayers of the team’s coach. Murderous creatures dedicated to the Ruinous Powers, each Damned Damsel is a daemonic soul bound into the body of a willing victim. This union of warp-born entity and human host means the Damned Damsels radiate Chaos energy and killer dance moves (quite literally), their eyes blazing with etheric fire as they scream out their devotion to the Dark Gods – and if this means the odd fan spontaneously turns into Chaos spawn then all the better!
This resin kit contains all the components necessary to assemble The Damned Damsels, a Chaos Chosen cheerleading squad. These are 4 horned, tailed and furious-looking cheerleaders, who have eschewed the traditional pom-poms for a more spiky approach – each holds a metal ring in each hand, covered in vicious-looking metal points. More like fearleaders, eh? Eh? (you’re fired. – ed)
These models are supplied with 4 32mm Blood Bowl bases, and rules for using cheerleaders in games can be found in The Inaugural Blood Bowl Almanac.
The Waaaghs (Wifes AAAnd GHerlfriendS) are the self-appointed cheer squad of the Gouged Eye. Stronger and larger than most of their male counter parts (you try raising Orc kids) the Waaaghs, disappointed with a poor season from the Orc team showed up one day to properly ‘motivate’ them. Now the Waaaghs can be regularly found on the side-lines whenever the Gouged Eye take to the pitch, hurling insults (and sometimes bottles) at the players, starting crude Orcish chants or egging the Orc players on to give the opposition more of a kicking.
This resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble The Waaaaghs!, a 3-model Orc cheerleading squad. Bulkier and far more intimidating than the often waif-like forms of other cheerleading squads, this lot mean business – their pom-poms (such as they are) are more like weapons, and they’re posed more like they’re looking for a fight than engaged in a synchronised dance routine (because they are looking for a fight…)
These models are supplied with 3 32mm Blood Bowl bases, and rules for using cheerleaders in games can be found in The Inaugural Blood Bowl Almanac.
When the Cheer Squad shows up you better bring it.
