@Sigilbeckons: The rules for BloodBowl are free and there is an unbelievable number of companies producing compatible minis out there - the game is still going strong, even though GW isn't supporting it. If you like all the crazyness of the BloodBowl setting, give the original a try.
That said, this looks like an alternative that conveys much of the original spirit and lets you play even if you're not into miniatures games.
I only have two questions after watching these videos. When can I get this? And when are the expansions coming out? There needs to be more teams so that we can start doing Fantasy Blood Bowl leagues or would it be Fantasy Fantasy Blood Bowl league?
This is what sets FFG apart from other game companies: Trailers and How-to videos! Pretty AWE-some!
Looks like a good Ipad app too!! *hint, hint*
I was on the fence about this one, but these videos always turn out great. I love Warhammer Fantasy and this game is just silly enough for me to pick up (a lot cheaper than its GW miniature version). Now if I could just find someone locally that enjoys these games a much as me.
Looks fantastic, can I play it now?
