    No it's gonna be
    2 rerolls
    2 dancers
    1 catcher
    8 line elves

    Only difference is you're gonna have 10k less gold saved up for an apo. Not a big nerf.

    And no. You still don't need a thrower.

    I agree, unless there is a rule punishment for stalling making the thrower more important, I just wouldn't take a thrower.

    Also any anti stalling rule can still avoid the thrower as there will be a way to play around it, just more awkward and need a bit more skill in positioning than hiding a thrower at the back.

    Where can we see the spoiled pages? The images on imgur seems to be pretty limited...

    Sorry to say that's pretty much it at the moment. I've seen on social media people are saying it's going to be a holiday release. I really hope we get it before Christmas though.

    Love the flesh golem, pumpkin ghoul runner and the zombie with a sack on his head.

    Holiday means released in November normally so it’s available for Xmas.

    I'm hoping more like within the next month... or at least to have my hands on it before the next inevitable pandemic lockdown here in the UK.

    I think people haven't commented enough on that 2+ Pass on the Human Thrower.

    I believe this will completely change the game for starting Humans. To the extent that starting with a Catcher on your roster will be the correct option.

    So far (with that change and the various changes to other teams) there seems to have been a bunch of very subtle buffs to Humans.

    I approve deeply.

    Looks like Wights have been replaced by Wraiths on the Necromantic roster. Rumour has it they have No Hands, Foul Appearance and Side Step. I like the idea to make them even more different from Undead teams.

    Not so keen on the models for the Wraiths personally, there used to be some really traditional looking Scythe carrying ones for Warhammer Fantasy years ago that looked far better (search for Nighthaunts). There's not even anything that Blood Bowl looking on them apart from the daft looking socks pegged to the ropes.

    They look like they'll snap the first time they get knocked down.
    Disappointed by the necro changes, but I'll wait and see the rules. If the wraiths still have guard access (if guard is still a thing), then it's maybe not so bad. If they don't, then it feels like a fairly big and unnecessary nerf.

    I think the jury is still out but the emphasis has really changed for Necro without the Wights. It's delightful that they're unique now but No Hands just seems like a penalty too far on a team full on zombies. No one likes a frenzy ball carrier so the ghouls will be vital in that role.

    Ghouls always seemed to make sense as the de facto ball carrier already anyway imo. No Regeneration and low armour value meant you wanted to protect them more than either the Wights or the Werewolves.

    I think someone once crunched the numbers and found that outside of Elves, Humans were the team that attempted passes the most. Whether its because its newbs just chucking the ball or humans being bogged down against bashy teams and forced to toss it. So +2 I think makes humans a real dual threat team on offense now.

    As a perennial Human coach with a love of the passing game I am extremely happy with the change. Not so bothered about the 'flinggs though.
