On Halloween, we launched our first range of miniature on Kickstarter.

The concept art for the 16 woman team was commissioned from B. Mure, a comic artist and illustrator from Nottinghamshire. These were then sent to Tom Lishman who has previously worked on Godtear, Dark Souls: The Board Game & Horizon Zero Dawn: The Board Game, for digital sculpting.

It is so nice to see a female Blood Bowl team that is reasonably dressed for the occasion.

They don't look much like Amazons but who cares.

Absolutely, a pleasantly unsexist take on amazons at last.

Gets my 100% support and I am really looking hard at pledging.

Glad you like them!

We're working on some social media stretch goals which we're hoping to start next week.

real great!! one quick question: 32mm bases if one asked?
I'm very interested in the "human team" stretch goal actually...I was considering playing them as some kind of elves so the 4 catcher are needed... let's hope we get there!

Hi Det,

We'll be offering 32mm bases as an option in the pledge manager. The minis fit on 25mm and 32mm comfortably.

they look more steampunk than the sword and sorcery setting of warhammer, but they are fine models nonetheless

about the sexism, nobody budges an inch when it's about scantily naked norse, tho

"They don't look much like Amazons but who cares."

Do you mean that they don't look like they are FROM the South American Amazon rain forest? As in, they don't look particularly jungle themed?

I'll need someone to explain to me again why, in this game, a warrior-class of females needs to come from a jungle setting?

IMO, the minis find a nice clothing combo which allows for both armor and agility. I, personally, would prefer armor more akin to lightly armored Greek or Roman soldiers. Yes, that means more skin, but dosn't necessarily have to mean boobage and ass cheeks.

Nice project though. I'd love to see these guys do a human team.. with dudes. (with shirts)

I think it is because they are called Amazons. Just like Bretonnians are not dressed as mountain men.
These are nicely made models!

This was my initial thought & due to that I'm not a fan at all. I've always wanted a more Themyscara/Paradise Island type of Amazon team showing more of a stout warrior woman look than the rain foresty look. They are nicely sculpted & posed models, but again just too steam punky & out of place in the BB universe IMHO.
