After the first succesfull kickstarter campaign, Gaspez-Arts is ready with its new Fantasy Football team: the "Kickass Cossacks".
The Gaspez-Arts team is always the same: Fabio (aka Gaspez-Arts) as manufacturer and the excellent artist
Raffaele Stumpo the creator of Bull Warriors - Chaos Dwarf team.
Look at the pictures about this ferocious and artistic football team.

You could of course. But Kislev are the slann rebranded.

Or rather 'Kislev Circus' are, because 'kislev' can't be trademarked, turns out it's the third month of the civil year and the ninth month of the ecclesiastical year on the Hebrew calendar. So GW can't make money off the name. But add circus and suddenly it's tm-able.


And because GW hates frogs.

Gaspez Arts figures are super quality. I have some of their Farm Chaos, and if and when I get a Chaos Dorf team, it will likely be those Bull Warriors. In fact - Gaspez - if you offer other teams during that Kickstarter the way that Willy Miniatures does, you will likely way exceed the goal. I understand that may be giving extra money to KS and making less on those other teams... but it is a certain way to include more folks into the project that may not necessarily be into that particular sculpt. Which may spurn more achieved goals and thus spur more interest.

Just a thought...

Cool, a Kislev team!
If it follows close enough to create the [SL] Kislev team I'm in!

We are very near to launch the KS campaign, we already have the prototypes and sure .... we'll offer some addons (miniatures and teams) during the campaign Smile

Hi Purplechest -not sure if that conspiracy theory is supposed to be tongue in cheek or dead serious, but in case it’s the latter, I’ll debunk.
Cyanide wanted to add Slann to BB2 but GW wouldn’t let them use the old frogs, so they were specifically looking for something to proxy for those statlines and all that leap.
Dode suggested Kislev Cirkus, and they went with that.

Hi plasmoid. Always love it when you pop in. Fancy a game?

As to whether my post was tongue in cheek or serious, must it be one or other?

Where's the conspiracy? GW didn't want frogs, i interpret this as 'GW hate frogs', clearly this is an attempt to present the truth amusingly. Thanks for confirmation.

Kislev is a Hebrew word, and hence not trademarkable. Also a fact. Most other races do not need a 'circus' like addition to their race. Making it 'Kislev Circus' both explains the skill set and makes it trademark-able. This may be a coincidence, but if so it's a handy one.

Much more on point, the sculpts released look awesome, and the same teams Bull Warriors (Chaos Dwarf) were great, and I am sad I missed the kickstarter.

This should be moved to RLBB forum though.

Well, as it happens my pbem-league starts the new season in just 2 weeks, and I’d be absolutely thrilled to play you there!
Do I detect a hint of sarcastic bile in your opening?
I just wanted to point out that GW was nowhere near origin of the “Kislev Circus” name, so trademarkability is indeed a coincidence.

@Gaspez-Arts: The sculps are indeed stunning.
Please consider a chain hanging from the neck of the bear, as this is used in BB2 as the excuse for “prehensile tail” on the statline.

The sculpts look great, but I have never liked the idea of a bear in Blood Bowl. All players should at least seem humanoid. (Even treemen)

You don't like the bear because it's naked now, but don't worry we'll cover him Wink

What other teams has Dode suggested for GW, if any?

The KS campaign probably will have some crossovers.
As the previous KS campaign we are planning to put a miniature (coach) as early birds pledge only for the first day, below the preview of it.
If you want so see more pictures of the team you can go to our Facebook page.

The time to launch the Kickstarter campaign is very closer.
Take a look at the preview:

Any feedback is welcome.
