On Friday I was lucky enough to have played a game of the new incarnation of Blood Bowl from Games Workshop. Unfortunately for me as I was entering the world of wargaming from what I remember, games such as Blood Bowl were on their way out and I only every got to play it two or three times. This is one of the many specialist games I have wanted to play for absolutely years, luckily I managed to get my hands on an unopened Battlefleet Gothic starter box last year and now I'm able to play another of these highly praised games that has been incredibly hard to find an affordable copy of.

Of that brief game of Blood Bowl, I was luckily allowed to play I was surprised to find how similar in almost 90% of the game was to the recent PC releases of Blood Bowl. I was aware they were close but not as similar as they actually turned out to be.
I fully intend to get two lots of this Blood Bowl starter box as I would like to paint up the first as the intended teams from the box, The Reikland Reavers and The Gouged Eye. The second will be used to come up with my own teams.

From finishing the starter set my plan is to branch out with the Death Zone league rules and come up with some of my own teams to form a small league with. As more and more teams are released, such as the soon to be released Skaven team they can be added as they are acquired. From what I can infer from screenshots of the Death Zone contents page its looks like season 1 as GW are calling it will have a total of 8 teams which are as follows; Human, Orc, Skaven, Dwarf, Nurgle, High Elf, Wood Elf and Dark Elf which should ensure quite an exciting first run of the game.
