Hello everyone !!
The Bloodbowl Second Season box is on pre-orders right now! Got the box today and after inspecting it, I want to do a quick review of the contents.
The blood bowl core box is priced at 105€ on GW store or 68£/75€ on element games and for this price you get :
– 12 red plastic Imperial Nobility team players: 4 Imperial Retainer Linemen, 4 Bodyguards, 2 Noble Blitzers, and 2 Imperial Throwers
– 12 green plastic Black Orc team players: 6 Goblin Bruiser Linemen, and 6 Black Orcs
– 1 red plastic Star Player, Griff Oberwald
– 1 red plastic Blood Bowl Ogre
– 1 green plastic Star Player, Varag Ghoul-Chewer
– 1 green plastic Blood Bowl Trained Troll
– 2 Blood Bowl Biased Referees: 1 Dwarf and 1 Elf
– Extra balls, team coins, and counters
– 136-page hardback Blood Bowl rulebook
– 1 double-sided fold-out Official Pitch
– 2 double-sided card dugouts,
– 3 plastic templates
– 2 full sets of Blood Bowl dice
– 2 quick-reference Cheat Sheets
The box is packed for sure! but is it good stuff?
The Human team in the core box is the Imperial Nobility, it's a new team and the full roster is included. I mean that you have all the positional in the box. 4 bodyguards, 2 nobles, 2 throwers, 1 ogre. Over are the days when only half of the indispensable positional are included. !!
Think of the terrible human box with only 2 Blitzers or the Skaven missing 2 gutters runners !!! Why ??? (we know why ^^)
The Imperial team is fully functional from the start and you can even use griff as an alt-noble if you want! Formidable!
The models are really good, lots of details, still twice the same sprue but with a bit of kitbashing you can make enough difference!
Another new team...Whoa, 2 new teams added to the game in the same box ??? is this real? :D.
Again you have the 6 black orcs 6 goblins and one troll. So the starting roster can be competitive with only the box content. What a difference compared to the older box...Off course 8 goblins would have been better, but 6 is enough to start.
Damn it's good to have a box with 2 fully functional teams.
The models are so awesome that i am going to as Black orcs team in Orcs team. These gobos are great as well and will be a neat inclusion in a large number of teams !!!
2 refs, one dwarf and one elf are included. Griff Obervald new sculpts and Varag new sculpt are also in the box.
Was not vital for playing but it's a very nice addition! (Considering they really improved the rules for Star Players it's good to already have 2! )
Both teams have cute tokens, balls, counters !!!
-The full rulebook is included, not some reduced version the full version. Beautifull book and look like a Sport Almanach.
-2 sets of dices. The red one was instantly adopted! they are fucking awesome !! maybe the best they ever made. (ok I know it's very personal but they are awesome !)
They are a lot better IRL.
-Terrains and Dugout:
Dugouts are smaller and sturdier so it's perfect to fit them on the table.
Terrain board is double-faced and include 2 traps that have an in-game effect!
Good quality, I am keeping the dug-out and will probably use my mousepad terrain.
-Plastic widgets are of good quality!
Best Value for price in blood bowl! Considering the price hike trend we had these last few months I was worried. I was wrong the box is awesome and deliver the perfect starting point to play BB in the second season.
It's a good buy!
