Blood Bowl 5th edition unboxing, and version comparison
« on: November 27, 2016, 03:46:44 AM »
I've posted batreps in other parts of this forum, but this is the first time I've written a Blood Bowl piece since joining this forums.  Without further ado, an unboxing and a breakdown of the rules!

Hope you like it!

Just to say GW are calling it "BB2016" rather than 5th edition.

Also: http://www.thenaf.net/2016/11/from-crp-to-bb2016/ written by a former BBRC member.

You might want to look at the Errata as well (on the bloodbowl.com website).

On a personal level, the new inducement phase is awful, and would be house-ruled out here (if we weren't in the middle of a season), as it allows the Underdog to become the Overdog with the original overdog getting a chance to reply, something that the Petty Cash rule, though poorly written (blame JJ!) was meant to prevent.
I fully expect that to be errata'd at some point in the near future.

One big one you missed is that Wood Elf linemen are, at the moment, only 7k gp! (You have to carefully read it, as you're brain will probably try to fool you - mine did the first few times I saw it!) This is, of course, a typo. ;)

See you've updated the article - Chaos Renegades and Denizens are not "new", they've been in the game for the last 10 years, Chaos Pact and Underworld.

Did I?  I didn't see a comment.  Hold on.

Ah, all comments require approval for the first time a new person posts.  You wouldn't believe how many spambots try to sell me Louboutin shoes or penis enlargement pills.

Also, if you'll read my post, I did update for the errata.

There were 4 days between my posts. ;)
