Ogre confirmed in the Old World Alliance team, as of 26 minutes ago.

In the spike blurb in the Pre Order page for the new spike on GW website.

in the box -
3 flings,
3 Human Linemen,
1 Human Blitzer,
1 Human Thrower,
3 Dwarf Blockers,
1 Dwarf Runner,
1 Dwarf Blitzer,
1 Dwarf Troll Slayer.

guessing flings are linemen? unless there is some special rule with this team about journeymen. looks like Purplechest was bang on with his guess.

Did you miss out a catcher or don’t you get one?

I think deep down we all knew PCs guess would be correct. The Underworld roster confirmed that ‘corporate policy’. I think the only questions were on the Ogre which we now know, and special rules which we don’t as yet. It’s looking a strong contender though!

Edit: I checked, there is a catcher. 15 players in that box! Underworld only get 12 and no Troll, which isn’t a surprise as the Goblin team didn’t have the trolls either, but still disappointing.

there is a catcher model, but in the blurb it doesn't say catcher, I assume that is a mistake, or the catcher is just a spare model?

Lots of loners, lots of animosity, the 0-12 journeyman is human, and rerolls are same as other mixed teams. Source is a picture floating around.

Quite a let down I'd say.

I wonder if they will bring Pact and Underworld up to 10 stars?

At the moment they can have.
Pact - Morg 'n' Thorg, Helmut Wulf, Lewdgrip Whiparm, Bomber Dribblesnot, Ugroth Bolgrot, Zzharg Madeye, Withergrasp Doubledrool, Guffle Pusmaw and Gobbler Grimlich
Underworld - Morg 'n' Thorg, Bomber Dribblesnot, Nobbla Blackwart, Skitter Stab Stab, Glart Smashrip, Madcap Miggz, Kreek Rustgouger and Gobbler Grimlich

Humans and Dwarfs are a bit starved of stars as well, so I guess it will be a selection from both of them with a couple of flings like Puggy and Jobo thrown in.

The human catcher is pictured, and there is a transfer sheet with player positions, including Human catcher...
Only 2 Dwarf Blockers and 2 Halfling Hopefuls, though

Don’t see many people using Halflings if you don’t need to. Yes maybe for TTM... but not many orc teams run a goblin either.

yeah well spotted. So looks like we get extra models that aren't used, or the transfer sheet is wrong....

hmm i don't have a good feeling about this roster.

Not sure either, seems to make some human team builds obsolete.

The dwarf runner is a bit pointless, just an expensive human lineman and you have a human thrower.

The Dwarf Runner could be used as Leader caddy, while the Human Thrower as specialist passer with Accurate, although taking Leader on the Runner doesn't save lot of TV, considering he's a more expensive Lineman with Thick Skull and Sure Hands.
3 Human Linemen + 1 Human Blitzer + 1 Human Thrower + 3 Dwarf Blockers +1 Dwarf Runner + 1 Dwarf Blitzer + 1 Dwarf Troll Slayer + 1 Human Catcher = 12 non-Halfling players, no need to use any Halfling but for the TTM, 13 adding the Ogre.

Honestly, I would have been happier if GW had just added 0-4 Halflings to normal Human roster and not this new team.
According to the lore Halflings live in the Moot, which is located in the Empire, so it would make sense they could be used on Human teams.
That would have made Halflings the Goblin counterpart on the Human roster and TTM available to Humans.

someone with the same name as me posted it on this website. - http://www.talkfantasyfootball.org/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=46259&p=816678#p816678

dunno who that could be.

The roster appears to be devoid of fun
