It's a real hodgepodge of poster art, concept art, and screenshots, but these newest assets from Cyanide Studios' Blood Bowl
are definitely charming ... in that bruised and battered kind of charming way of theirs. The posters especially have some winning little details. In "Dwarfs vs. Lizardmen," shorty's got a pint of ale while lizzy wears a pound of gold. In "Wood Elves vs. Chaos," the elf is putting up bunny ears when both of them are already horned. In "Orcs vs. Humans," it's hard to tell who's got worse teeth. And before "Skaven vs. Goblins," I'd have been hard-pressed to come up with a creature more gully than a goblin, but I now know exactly one more creature that looks even more depraved.
will also feature "Star Players." These are characters that command a stiff contract fee, but will unapologetically turn the tide of battle on the gridiron. The Humans have Griff Oberwald. The Elves have Jordell Freshbreeze. The Orcs have Varag Ghoul-Chewer. And Grashnak Blackhoof is Chaos' minotaur.
