There seems to be rumours going around that Blood Bowl will get a special re-release edition this year around September, to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Someone blogged about it a while ago, but I don't know who anymore. Meanwhile, here is the rumour mill in overdrive:

Anyone heard more?

While i would Love to see a limited edition anniversary copy of the game i think that Mordheim is a more likely prospect as it's part of the canon for Warhammer as opposed to BB which is more an alternate reality Warhammer world. Smile

Sadly in that thread on Warseer the guy who was credited with the rumour has already confirmed it's not going to be Bloodbowl or Man O war. Sad

Still could be dungeon bowl. That would make for a sweet self standing box set.

I'm hoping for GorkaMorka (yes, that's not 25 yo nor fantasy, but would still be cool.)

Necromunda was good fun. None of Mordheim, Man o War or GorkaMorka are really worth a re-release.

Did I hear that they were going to release a new set of human figures as they never released a metal set with all the others in 3rd ed or did I just make that up?

You just made that up. lol. They did release metal human figures at a later date and they are still available on the GW website.

Another consideration would be Warhammer Quest maybe.

All those games came out in the same year? So they would have their 25th anniversary this year (Don't know, wasn't even born back than Very Happy)?

But maybe it would be Blood Bowl. You know, having the PC game, getting those people hooked on, now releasing a TT Version of it.

Whatever it might be, hope it's not just a "Oh look, we took the old game and produced it again, everything is just like... back then!".

The person that released the info said it wasnt a board game though. So that rules out bloodbowl WHQ etc... I dunno what it is and I dont really care because it will definately suck and most likely have space marines with it. Maybe it will be space bloodbowl Rolling Eyes

Damnit, you notice that but no one notices BB wasn't actually first released until 1987...

I always assumed those figures were older they never appeared that good to me. Only seen pics on the net, are they nice in RL?

you're kidding ... its GW after all.
they will do whatever they want, for reasons no one (not even they themself) understands and whatever reaktion the comunity will give, it will be restricted.
so goodbye to all youre dreams, hopes and ideas.

but i was on an similar trip. at the time Cyanide game was released ... i went to a GW store and asked for a BB-team. Mad
