So I've preordered this and the skaven team, but I'm interested in some of the other teams and was curious where people have ordered in the past. And if they fit my needs, or if I'll just have to wait for gw to continue on its way

wants:
Preferably plastic
Match current(ish) sculpt style
amazon/wood elf teams
not forgeworld expensive
actually available

Undead teams are cheap and easy. Check Elfball for similar teams too.

This is the biggest impediment we'd be talking about.

Comixininos
Willy Miniatures
Greebo, and
Gaspez

are a few of my favorites, but they all cost.

If you want to spend considerably less, I know of only two places:

Black Scorpion Miniatures
and Impact Miniatures.

They both have resin available. Black Scorpion has a smaller range of popular teams, well-scaled. Impact has a lot of teams, many of which are a little "non-standard" (like a Cthulu-style team and a team of African animals). Since you mention Amazons, I'll point out that Impact has my favorite Amazon team anywhere--clear positionals, thematically appropriate, football-appropriate players, and anatomically—er, probable women.

Lots of teams out there, though—it's a great time to be into Blood Bowl, and a great time to get into Blood Bowl!

keep in mind that GW has upscaled all the figures from their fantasy range.

These new blood bowlers will be bigger than your older teams. Enough that it bothers me, but I'm a dork that way. YMMV

Not really what you're asking, but if you just want to play and sample the weirder teams, you can make do with cardboard standees. I'm playing my current season with a cardboard Chaos Pact team, printed out and glued onto a cereal box - now that I know I like their play style, I'll look for some actual minis to carry forward into next season
