Blood Bowl Team Greenfield Grasshuggers

31 years after their initial introduction, the Greenfield Grasshuggers receive a plastic kit as part of the latest Blood Bowl reincarnation.

Blood Bowl - Greenfield Grasshuggers Blood Bowl - Greenfield Grasshuggers

The Greenfield Grasshuggers were shown for the first time in the rulebook of the 2nd edition of Blood Bowl in 1988, above the entry you can see a bit of the Nurgle Rotters, who got a recent re-release for Blood Bowl as a plastic kit as well. The halflings were available as miniatures casted from metal with 6 different poses and a star player, Puggy Baconbreath in the late 80s / early 90s. Later in the mid 90s, during the 3rd edition of Blood Bowl, the models got a re-design, again with 6 different poses. (The Citadel Annual pictures were taken from SoLegend, Cat 1989 and Cat 1994). Prior to the release of the plastic kit, Games Workshop offered the 3rd edition metal team as made-to-order, a chance that I took as you can see here.

Munchkin Warhammer 40,000

Games Workshop does not make all their profits by selling miniatures, a solid part of the revenue is generated by licensed products. Those are not just video games, but board games as well. I showed you the Monopoly variant of Warhammer 40,000 already on this blog, and today I'd like to share the new Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 card game by Steve Jackson Games / Pegasus Spiele.

Munchkin began as a fun card game, with classic fantasy elements that you will know from Dungeon Crawlers and Role Playing games. Multiple supplements were released, adding more items, treasures and monters to the game. But multiple spin-offs, sometimes using licenses or specific themes like Pathfinder, Sci-Fi, Cthulhu or Superheroes. So going further and do a crossover with the Warhammer universe isn't far fetched.

PK-Pro Leaf Punches

On Tactica earlier this year, I got myself a bit of loot, among that one of the PK-Pro Punches.

Hamburger Tactica 2019

PK-Pro offers currently three different kind of these punches, with the motives of 4 different leaves each. I got the #2 Punch, as it has more complex shapes and wider leaves. It is not the first time, that I'm working with punches, I have a simple round punch with 25mm diameter, that I use for tokens, you can take a look over here - Knock out? Punch out!

Blood Red Skies – Battle for Britain

Warlord Games has expanded their popular World War 2 range of Bolt Action into the skies and the sea. I've done a lot of Bolt Action coverage already here and am keen to try out other scales and settings. I have talked about both systems and their potential position on the market, but today I want to take a look into the starter set of Blood Red Skies.

Blood Red Skies - Battle for Britain Blood Red Skies - Battle for Britain

The boxed set is priced at 40 GBP and comes with english rules, but Warlord Games offers free PDF downloads of the rules in German and French. The rules themself, at least the Quick Starter Rules, are available as a free download as well. Presentation is very much like a board game, with a plastic tray to hold the gaming components and miniatures them self.

Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault – Zarbag’s Gitz

Zarbags Gitz were one of the first warbands released for Nightvault, late last year and with the recent release of the Gloomspitze Gitz it makes sense to take a closer look at them.

The warband of Moonclan Grots (formerly known as Nightgoblins) is the largest of them available for Underworlds so far and after the Orruks of Ironskull's Boyz the second greenskin warband.

Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault – Godsworn Hunt

Paired up with Mollog's Mob, the second warband that isn't part of a regular Age of Sigmar faction is introduced as a warband for Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault - Godsworn Hunt.

Godsworn Hunt belongs to the chaos pantheon, but unlike the Reavers or Magore's Fiends, not devoted solely to Khorne, but part of the Darkoath. The Darkoath is so far covered by two miniatures in the Age of Sigmar range, with a Warqueen, as part of Malign Portent, and a Chieftain, who was introduced with Warhammer Quest. And they are covered in the Roll Models webcomics shown on Warhammer Community, and at best compared with the chaos marauder tribes of the Old World.

Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault – Mollog’s Mob

During Warhammer Fest Europe last year the new season of Underworlds Nightvault was announced, we were told that factions would be introduced to the game that haven't been released for Warhammer or Age of Sigmar. Thus bringing us the warbands of Mollog's Mob and Godsworn Hunt.

Let's start with Mollog's Mob today. The warband was released early this year, but already previewed at Spiel in Essen, where it was shown fully painted during the event.
