The big question about Games Workshop returning to other games is..is it any good? Happily the answer is a resounding yes. The miniatures are great, the board is great, and the rulebook and supporting items are great. And for a smart extra bonus, they kept the rules the same! There may be a few very minor tweaks, but it is classic Blood Bowl, thank Nuffle (BB dice deity).
The box set comes with a dozen Orc and Human players, and the Skaven starter box has been released. Dwarves and Elves are rumored to be next. Extra players, Star Players, and the like are suppose to be coming from Forge World. Hopefully they will get to the Chaos team before long.
This does feel like it is a real re-launch of Blood Bowl that will have good support from Games Workshop rather than a one-off nostalgia release. I hope that is the case.
