This Month In Blood Bowl – October 2020

Welcome to the October issue of This Month In Blood Bowl blog. The main big news is that the Blood Bowl Second Season Edition release from Games Workshop has been confirmed for November, so not too long to wait. The World continues to struggle with the current pandemic but his has not stopped Blood Bowlers from enjoying the game however they can.

Lots going on this month so lets get going…


Games Workshop Preview – Gridiron and Glory

Games Workshop held another live preview via Twitch on 17th October. Normally these are full of space giants and god like creatures. But this one was dedicated to some of the other boxed games including Blood Bowl. The upcoming Blood Bowl Second Season Edition was again shown, with the presenters both having a copy (lucky them).

But we did get our first look at the two referee models which will be included in box set but far more importantly the we now know it is coming in November!!!

Spooky-duper – Necromantic confirmed for november

Blood Bowl III Video Game Sneak peak

The team behind the new Blood Bowl Video Game has teased a few details that gamers can expect in the edition of this popular game. Player customisation seems to have been a focus for the developers and artists working on the project with some released this month.

Some more team models were also shown with a look at Chaos Renegades and the Old World Alliance. changes… has had a bit of facelift with new background, new wallpaper images to download and maybe the odd glimpse into the future…

Could these be Frank N Stein, Bryce ‘The Slice’ Cambuel and Wilhelm ‘The Wolf-Man’ Chaney…?

up and under blood bowl fiction

The Up and Under Blood Bowl fiction is available on the excellent Blood Bowl Strategies website. Written by Ian H McKinley, this weekly Blood Bowl fiction has reached 29 episodes, accompanied by some excellent artwork by Meunier. Go give it a read… was gone but is back up again… kind of!
