Do we know what the rules changes are?

I like the new models, and now there is my ideal team (Black Orcs) I could be tempted back in if the tedious (to me) gameplay issues have been resolved.

Not really. There's been a few guesses based on the leaked pics, but nothing concrete.

I beieve theres lots of discussion on it on the Facebook BB group, but i left that a long time ago.

I don't think the changes are enough to being back those who have fallen out of love for the game.

Mainly the addition (return) of the passing stat meaning all teams are down to only one or two passing players. They hope people will now play with a 'quarterback' but I just see it as a target. Big guys cannot throw the ball and elves are majorly nerfed. (Needed?)
Lots of skill changes, a couple of new ones and changes to teams to sell more models.

Nothing about an anti stalling rule? I could have sworn I read about something like that.

There is, I've just not seen what it is yet.

Thanks.

Is it me or does it not actually say what the penalty for stalling is?

I haven't looked, but it's possible it's on a page not shown.

[Edit] Nope, seems you're correct.

Half a page to describe stalling, which is then used on a 1/16 chance on a table that won't be used every game. :roll:


Boxset seems to be priced at ¬£85 (‚ā¨105) while rules on their own at ‚ā¨40 (so ~¬£30?).

21 teams in the rules. Missing from previous editions are Vampires, Amazons, Norse, Chaos Dwarf, Khemri and High Elf, with no word yet how, when or even IF they will be added.

And nothing about Bretonnians or Khorne (happy dance).
