Hello all,

I know at this point my question really only leads to pure speculation, but I know there are a lot of seasoned Blood Bowl players on here so thought I'd go for educated guesses.

With the base set now released and enthusiasm for BB at an all time high, I would imagine that GW would want to release teams fairly quickly so that people can get playing (with the official miniatures, most importantly for them!). So what are people expecting their release schedule to be? As someone eagerly awaiting the dwarf team (I decided to go for a race before even seeing the minis as I always liked them back in my Warhammer days but never collected them), I'm expecting most likely a January release for them. But does this mean we could be waiting a whole year or longer for every team to become available? I know with GW this wouldn't be surprising or unreasonable, but because of the nature of this game with leagues and tournaments I would expect maybe a slightly different schedule of releases of the base teams, with blister packs to follow?

I think we will see all the season 1 teams within a few months. Maybe 2 teams a month from January. Might take 1-1,5 years for all 21 teams.

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.

Well, don't forget the release schedule (maybe through Forge World?) of blister packs for the Star Players.

What we KNOW:
They have claimed an "aggressive" release schedule is the play for Season One;
They have several packs of extra cards ready to go;
Pics have been seen of the Dwarf minis, but not of other unreleased teams;
GW companies are typically light on releases during December;
Winter pitch is out 09/12/2016, with pre-orders 02/12/2016;
Season One includes eleven Star Players and 9 Teams (3 released).

Consensus in my local community:
Dwarves will be the next team out;
Likely around two to four minis releases a month (no more than two teams);
Star Players in Forgeworld resin;
Probably the ability to buy additional player sprues from Direct Sales, to bulk out your teams;
A dice set with each team released;
Coaching Staff, Inducement minis, etc in Forgeworld Resin.
