Join editor Christoph Pololio on a journey into the Ogre Kingdoms, as he explores the unique culture of the nomadic tribes – and just why they’re drawn so strongly to Blood Bowl. Whilst Ogres are happy to play with other teams for the pure love of lifestyle of violence, money, and free food that accompanies it, they occasionally form their very own teams...
Lord Borak the Despoiler returns as guest editor for the 2019 update! This issue combines all the content from four full issues of Spike! Journal, including the full rules for the Champions of Death, Greenfield Grasshuggers, Athelorn Avengers, and Gwaka’moli Crater Gators (that’s issues 4-7 if you're counting).
When it comes to dice, what could be more Fire Mountain than grey faux-rock and bright red markings? Actual stone dice that are actually on fire would, we suppose, but that’s just not safe around all these miniatures. Grab a set of these themed dice, guaranteed (probably) to roll well and bring many victories and much glory to your Ogre team.
Ogres are not subtle, but that doesn't mean you don't need a reference for all their special rules, stats and Star Players. This essential deck of 44 cards helps you make the most of your team, ensuring you never forget something in the heat of the game.
Ogre stadia would be ruggedly handsome, nestled as they often are high up in the mountains, were it not for the bloodstains and craters full of picked-over bones. If you're into that sort of thing, it’s extra pretty. If not, they can be a little less than welcoming.
Blood Bowl is the classic game of fantasy football. It’s all about strategy, grit, and – above all – heinous violence. Two players coach their teams to victory on the pitch, utilising every natural advantage, dirty trick, and cheap shot they can come up with to get the ball into the End Zone, or take out the entire opposing team.
Coaching goblins can be a chaotic mess in all the right ways. Keep that mayhem to the pitch and get organised with this deck of 44 reference cards. Keep track of stats for each position, Star Players, Dirty Tricks and Miscellaneous Mayhem.
Keep your head in the game instead of flipping through books. This crucial deck of 45 cards is loaded with reference material to help you make the most of your Lizardmen team. Easily look up your player stats, Star Players, Magical Memorabilia and Benefits of Training.
Once a laughing stock, the Gouged Eye has employed filthy tactics, brute force and lots of punching to rise through the ranks to become big players in the upper echelons of Blood Bowl. They’ve won the title before, and they can do it again – a far cry from the early days of the team, when it was a miracle if their throwers were facing the right way.
Shambling Undead teams are drawn from a mix of vicious undead creatures and former Blood Bowl players that died on the pitch and – through the art of necromancy – have been given the chance of a second career!
The Dwarf Giants are an old team with a very long and distinguished history. They were one of the original Blood Bowl sects, and have been present for every major development in the game’s history. In more recent times they have consolidated their talents and re-launched themselves as major players in the modern Blood Bowl leagues.
