Blood bowl update

Here are some updated.pictures and info about the game. Biggest things are a number of plastic teams in the works and NO changes to the current rules. This looks almost more like a wishful thinking post than current info, but ill take it.

I'd heard similar info from different sources.
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.

From what I've heard, the rules aren't getting changed in any drastic fashion--they'll be using the last update that GW had for it officially, but without the LRB teams and changes. Apparently Jervis tooled around with it some time ago and had some notes kicking around that might get implemented but I can only assume it's quality-of-life improvements/balances rather than anything major.

I had heard they plan on implementing some of the balancing that the Video game guys figured out. And that was going to be most of the monkeying around they were going to do. So Blood Bowl 2 would be a good indicator of how the board game would look.

The whole "not changing what isn't broken" element is appealing. However, any sort of balancing based on Cyanide is not. Cyanide couldn't even build the basic mechanics correctly, so any conclusions drawn from Cyanide data would be off the mark.
This just goes to show: No matter how stupid and useless a weapon may look to you, some guy in Asia with too much time on his hands has figured out how to use it to kill five ninjas.

I know that Cyanide used the data that Plasmoid has collected for their "balancing" of BB2 which aren't game break. Orc blitzer cost a bit more and a human catcher with 8AV I believe. The guy definitely did his homework and has years of collected data. I love the game the way it is but small tweeks like that wouldn't hurt the game.

I played blood bowl both the board game and video game (which is very similar to the board i learned the rules and everything through it minus the dice system). My best team was not my orxs but a toss between dwarves or lizardmen (named after barney and friends). Kroxxigor want hug
