I reluctantly use the word warhammer in the title, but there are a few warhammer things out:

not sure if you guys can see this if not registered on warseer

Some bloodbowl minis (Mark Bedford)

Also loads of Tau, Mechanicus and SM stuff
Awesome! Thank you for the post Grim! That Chaos Dragon looks promising! I hope (for Chaos Players), that it is not going to be too difficult to scrap off its Khornate iconography, in order to make a model devoted to another god! Also, I absolutely LOVE that artwork!!! Can't wait for those Sylvaneth models, and Alarielle to be released!

You know, Age of Sigmar is really growing on me... I want to finish my Warhammer army (2 or 3 models left), and start an AoS one. The idea of having Orcs, Black Orcs, and Ogre slaves (I want to use Berserker Ogryns for these) in a Legion of Azgorh force is too epic to pass Happy. Without considering that you can proxy Hobgoblin Bolt throwers as Grot Spear Chukkas as well Big Grin.

I really, really, REALLY hope that Forgeworld is going to release rules for the Legion of Azgorh when the point system will drop though. I WANT generic Lords riding Lammasu & Great Tauri back, as well as Hobgoblins & K'daai Destroyers Hashut!
Some more info on Blood Bowl:

Most important: Rules stay the same, so no messing around with gaming board design, base size or whatnot.

ShaneTB over at Dakka, talking to developers at Warhammer Fest:

Six plastic teams; human, orc, dwarf, elf, skaven, nurgle
Humans and Orcs in core box
Core box out by end of year
Three piece snap-fit plastic
Each team will have its own ball
There will be an app for it
Star players will return; some will become coaches as the timeline moves on
3rd ed was the startinf reference point
Teams designed to look like sport teams rather than armies dropping weapons to play
Elf sketchs looked good
Pitch board is reversable; they'd love to do one for each team
Model bases had a hole in to place the ball peg
Optional rules for team balls may happen (drawf is metal ball, skaven warpstone ball may explode/mutate)
Additional teams may happen in resin (ie dark elves)
Core game - will be stocked in stores
Not limited
If sells well, season 2 to follow
D16 was there

Same by Rictus:

Had a number of conversations with the team, especially Andy Hoare who put up with me going back about four times (though one conversation was mainly to do with Adeptus Titanicus). Thankfully he is a man with a lot of patience.

First up what I can remember:

The release is hoped to be end of the year.

Box set contains the first two teams, Orcs and Human in plastic.
The pitch is double sided with a Human pitch on one side and an Orc pitch on the other.
The rules have not been changed, they are the rules which has been around for a while now.

In total there will be six teams in plastic (Human, Orc, Skaven, Elf, Nurgle and Dwarf). Other teams will follow in resin. There is also likely to be resin conversion sets.

There will be more pitches which will also be double sided (Dwarf/Skaven & Elf/Nurgle) with more possible later including tournament specific ones.

They are looking at neoprene pitches but as yet they don't know, it comes down to cost and if they can get them in large enough quantities and other factors but it is something they would like to have.

Several expansions are mapped out including the first one covering seven more teams and league rules.

If all goes well Dungeon Bowl will also see the light of the day.

BTW if you are interested, the Bloodbowl portable stadium kickstarter still allows for late pledges:

And I own a Chaos Dwarf Bloodbowl mat, which is a custom, no-logo variant of this one, ask them:

And this is their standard Chaos Dwarf Logo:

The Orc team looks good, the Dwarf models look good, the human linemen look awful! The rest of the human team look fine, but the linemen are done in some cheap horrific 80s style that make them look like a 10-year-old in full American football gear.
I need that fimir noble in my life now! Shock
Hey folks. Have they announced a release date for the new edition of Blood Bowl? Something more concrete than just "RETURNS IN 2017".

And by the way - where the heck is Hero Quest 25?! Damn!
Awesome new Fimir. Great to see those ancient deviants getting a bit of love.
