NAF to remove LRB at end of June

GW have asked us to remove them in anticipation of the new rules being released, so that players who are new to the game do not get confused.

The CRP will continue to be used at NAF tournaments until further notice, but the document will be removed from thenaf.net at the end of June 2016, as it is a GW document. Therefore please do download it for personal use before then.


This is a little worrying about places like Yaktribe. Nothing really dies or goes away on the internet, but having a central hub for the rules and for community-driven improvements is much more convenient than trawling Mega or 4chan.

It is nice of GW to give them a little time to prep for it though. Their standard MO has simply been 'remove our ip now'. I am curious to see if there will be a transition to a new rules set. I would assume they would IF GW does not try to reinvent the game. It is probably their most balanced, thought out and complete rules set for a GW game (Could be the result of not being substantially updated since the 90's though).

My biggest concern about GW re-launching Blood Bowl is that they take a big GW dump all over a really functional rules set for the sake of selling models.

Fingers crossed...but, I'm not hopeful on this one...

I'm actually starting to come back around with GW's positive direction in the new leadership.
What aims do the Orks have? What is the point of a tornado?

I dig how in a setting where giant, muscled fungus men ride Mad Max cars and use their own teeth as currency, the concept of little engineering dudes with beards was considered a step too far down the aisle of silliness.

My sentiments exactly.

I think Warhammer Quest will be a good measuring stick. Supposedly the guy who updated Warhammer Quest went on a bunch of message boards to see what the biggest gripes were and took generally accepted house rules on how to fix them when he edited the rules. If they did something similar with Blood Bowl it could be really good.

Remember, the Forgeworld team is responsible for this. Forgeworld has been surprisingly good at releasing decent rules, even when they could make some ridiculously overpowered rule set to sell tons of resin models.

That being said, I wouldn't put a bet on it not being a train wreck.
