    I look down my nose at Stunties :-)

    Although the Steamroller is a fearsome thing.

    You say the wood elves are weak, which they are, but the War Dancers are a pain to knock down! Block and Dodge as standard the sods.

    Anyway, I am really enjoying my Orc team a whole lot more than my Human team. Things are coming along very nicely with them boyz.

    The War Dancers can be a pain, I try to box them in, limit their movement.

    Lizardmen, I play a Chaos team. I've never finished a game with so few men left.

    There will be revenge though. :-)

    OOF! Tough break.

    Recently an AI Dwarf Troll Slayer killed one of my Skaven linesmen and my superstar Gutter Runner, Arthur.

    My entire remaining team spent the next few turns ignoring the ball and just gang-fouling the Troll Slayer in revenge for their fallen comrades.

    Ended up getting half my team sent off but the Troll Slayer ended up with a fractured skull, so a reduction in his armour value. Next time I play them I'll be finishing the job, rest assured.

    RIP Arthur. *sob*

    I wish the Undead team was in this instead of the Lizardmen.

    Anyone know if there is going to be any other teams for DLC?

    The PC version had (free) downloadable content, so I'd expect it'd become available on the Xbox at some point, but at a cost obviously :)

    Think it was just the Dark Elves tream for the moment though.

    Ah yes, now you say that I do remember hearing something about the Dark Elves.
    First Blood Bowl team I ever bought back in my youth.

    Dug out my copy of the board game version on Sunday to look it over and see if anything is missing as it's not been used for a while. I was happy to see everything was still in the box. Even all the counters which I was suprised about and everything look good as new \0/
    If only I had someone to have a game with.

    I had my revenge on the Lizardmen last night :-)

    In the tournament final, I killed their star player, won the match 4-2 and generally made many offerings to the Blood God. Very satisfying.

    An undead team would be quite cool.

    I remember the devs saying they'd like to do lots of DLC expansions, but it depended on how well the game did.

    I really do hope they make more teams for the game as that would bring even more life to it.

    I would also love to buy a few new teams for my original set and add some new life to it but 30 a pop is a bit high. Should expect it to be cheap when dealing with GW. My flat mate has taken an interest in the 360 version some i'm going to work on him to join me for a table top game.

    The official forums may interest you. In there, there's a suggestions thread that's regularly checked by mods maintaining it, and the highlights moved to the first post. The makers apparently have a list that they will work through to continue to add features and rules/enhancements to the game.

    That is bad luck mate.

    I took out Headsplitter in the second turn of the first half the other night. I was most pleased.

    Minotaurs can dish out the pain but aren't the best at taking it, so I avoid placing mine on the line of scrimmage or going toe-to-toe against other big hitters like Rat Ogres.

    I think of my Minotaur as a flat track bully; just there to beat up the smaller boys and get some of the weaker opponents off the pitch asap.

    When I'm on defense I place 3 cheapo Beastmen on the line of scrimmage, on the basis that the opposition line of scrimmage would be highly likely to put even my best players on their arses, so I'd rather it's just some cannon fodder potentially being killed than my prized Minotaur.

    You're right, the Minotaur is really a big bully, but isn't as good against those his own size.

    Legendary Edition, announced for PC, out at the end of the year.

    The race count will go up to 20, bringing it far closer to that of the tabletop game.
    Undeads, Amazons, Ogres and 9 other races enter Blood Bowl's tournaments. All 20 races have their personal style, tactics and unique skills which give each game a diversity rarely seen in a strategy game.
    There'll be new stadia, and the rulebook will see tweaks and updates. Additionally, a new story mode where you play a freelance coach. and an accompanying tutorial, will be included.

    Amazons, and many more teams are on the way, for Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition, now said to be available in Late October! By checking the sidebar, you can easily see the thus-far released shots of the new teams, the new set also brings with it new rules, and extra content, all on the way soon. A full gallery of screens await.

    Kotaku, were on the ball, with a glimpse at the newly revealed Necromantic team.

    I've go the Dark Elves edition and I've been enjoying it. The game engine and the character animations are both great, but the PC game skin around them appears to have been done on the cheap: no windowed mode, it won't let me tab out or launch other applications (I'd better already have firefox running on the other monitor, or I can forget about it until I quit the game), and an incredibly obtuse system for playing specific other people and making and playing leagues.

    Yes, we figured it out. It took 2 of us working together though (and we couldn't access the manual while the game was open, obviously.

    Any idea why there's no 360 release for the Legendary Edition?

    I did this and it's awesome. Gem of a game.

    We should set up a legendary league as, hopefully, it's out 28th October.

    Owners of the first get a 30% discount on the digital version.
