I can only afford my copy of the new BB box (and Death Zone) in December at best, possibly January, so I'm curious... are there already rules that would involve those referee figs in some way or are those just decorative (unless new rules are released at the same time)?

I have not seen any rules yet. But it seems odd to release eye-candy only miniatures at this point.

Actually, given the sorts of things GW normally releases in December, this is pretty typical.

I'd not expect more substantial releases until after a big fellow in red has visited...

Eye candy it is! Hope there will be hooligans and cheerleaders again also

Cheerleaders (and assistant coaches) at least have game value...

Decorative. Referees haven't had rules since 2nd Edition in the 1980s.

There were some for 3rd edition in the 90s too, although they weren't all that interesting. They must have been in Fanatic magazine or something.

The referee also got 'rules', if you make a foul some one got to blow the wisle, or flip a coin at the start of the match A big part of this game is about eye candy (for a lot of people), it's a hobby. There are people out there building stadiums and what not. Just for fun! Google it.

I like eye candy, but I did not expect it before the three initial teams where 'completed'.

But it is now 'confirmed' that they will be
