The War of Sigmar site has received a preview copy of the new edition from Games Workshop, and the site is packed with great information. Well worth taking a look:

https://war-of-sigmar.herokuapp.com/


BoLS also got a box, and have done an unboxing. (Is it just me, or is it really annoying that someone from BoLS opening this box doesn't know what some of the contents actually are by now?)

Ahh, and look at that - they sent the Dice Tower a box as well.

Awesome, thanks! I've never played Blood Bowl on tabletop, but jumped in and really enjoyed Blood Bowl 2 on PC. I will be jumping in with this new set when it is released!

I'm really impressed by it and I haven't been able to say that about a GW product since the mid 2000s.

I'm looking forward to mixing in my old second & third edition teams with the new stuff into the ultimate collection.

GW has released a PDF of the contents from the Death Bowl supplement. Looks a bit like this:



Also, the Age of Sigmar site is saying rumours have the price for the base game at £65.

The Bugman tankard is excellent. I'm going to be buying every plastic boxed set for the new edition.

The Coat of Arms of Clan Montgomery - Scotland. Yes, that's a woman with the head of a savage in her hand, and an anchor. No clue what it means, but it's cool.

Do you have any idea how much shampoo a dwarf community uses in a week? The volume is staggering! And yet there's never marketing to specifically target dwarf consumers . . . until now.

Where did this come from? I don't see it on the official BB page, I haven't had an e-mail announcing it from the newsletter mailer, it's not on any of my regular rumour haunts.

(Not doubting, by the way) The expected release date is 26th, and the 12th would give a two-week pre-order window.

Ahh. I never think to check Facebook. Not sure why I bothered subscribing to the newsletter

Should get confirmation on that price in the next day or so then.

So exciting.

Will this get sold in mainstream OLGS's? I've never bought anything from Games Workshop, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to use good ol' coolstuffinc for this, or somewhere else?

Pricing according to various sites:

Blood Bowl Boxed Set: 85 Euros
Death Zone Season 1 gaming supplement: 20 Euros
Skaven Team (12 Players): 25 Euros
Skaven Dice (Set of 10): 9 Euros


To get some idea of how the prices stack up in different territories, the hero bases set is also priced at 25 Euros, and is £20 in the UK, and $35 US.

In the UK, I would be expecting £65, £15.50, £20, and £6.

No plain Chaos team, no Chaos Dwarfs, no undead teams of any kind. But four elf teams!

Roll on season two, it might have rules for a team I own other than Orcs and humans.

Yeah, but that forum didn't exist when I created this post.
