Some news has been unveiled for Necromunda, Blood Bowl and Kill Team:

For Necromunda, nothing major yet. But a brand new Kal Jericho miniature is coming:
GAMAReveals-Mar11-KalScabbs6snct.jpg


For Blood Bowl, everyone's favorite joke team will be next:
GAMAReveals-Mar11-BBHalflingsMinis5scf.jpg

(I really like those sculpts. Miniature-wise, I think it's my favorite of the plastic BB teams. They did a real effort to provide head-swaps to avoid obvious duplicates, and there is even a squirrel!)

For Kill Team, the next expansion will add more 'elite' units to existing factions (up to and including Terminators and Crisis suits), and add the Adeptus Custodes as a new faction:
GAMAReveals-Mar11-KTElites1ehvdg.jpg

(This one I'm not really happy about)

Ah, you beat me, spent too long googling to try and find out where I'd seen a revolver that had a barrel at the bottom of the cylinder before! Never mind. The new Kal model is alright I suppose. Can't say I prefer it over the old one - it's much the same to me. But Scabbs... isn't Scabbs. I do like the Matiba/Rhino stub gun though.

(Edit: It was Ghost in the Shell by the way).

I'm leaning towards the older Kal and Scabbs models; it might be due to the paint job, or photo angle (again). Why is New Scabbs looking down at the floor? What is with New Kal's face and hair?

The Halflings look nice I guess, it's a shame I'm not really a Halfling or BB fan.

Kill Team doesn't need elite units/models.

I think those new Kal and Scabbs models are insults to the originals.

At least Kal is better than the black library version.
Counting the black library one and the inquisitor one this is the 4th kal Jericho miniature GW has put out.
Is there any other named character out there who has had that many across there games/lines?

I'm surprised that older Kal Jerico model is preferred over this one. I think new model is so much better... And I even think the paintjob is one of the best ones from forge world recently (at least for necromunda).

If I ever make an order from forge world I would include this new Kal Jerico model (even though I own the old one)

I've got mixed feelings on "Elites"... presumably it'll mostly just be datasheets and tactics cards but anything else will just make the game more complicated without adding much.

On top of that you've got weird releases (another Ork box?) and plenty of lists that have neither a commander box nor a starter box (I think some of the commanders haven't even been released?)...

I think the one with right fist in the air and saucepan on his head (bottom left and centre) may be one-piece, but there do seem to be a variety of heads.

I'm kinda surprised to see Halflings ahead of several more serious teams. Also a shame they didn't go to 14 models, like the Undead, for a full roster (when you add two Treemen).

I do like them but all my BB stuff is 28mm scale, so they would probably look more like beardless Dwarfs than Halflings.

I also think the new Kal is a good looking model. I also agree that Scabs is a little too clean though. I'm looking forward to adding them to my collection.

Kal is okay, face is a little Cardassian. I don't like the new Scabs at all. Might need a Halfling venator gang with cyber-squirrel...

Hopefully there will be some more Necro goodness?

EDIT: HALFLING PITSLAVES!!!1!

On the one hand, I'm happy Kal finally got a model. Finally, a known face from the old days shows himself. On the other hand, his face looks like it's had some Gabriel Angelos Syndrome happen to it.

Yeah, I'm definitely falling on the side of this new Kal model. Perhaps it was the paintjob of something with the face, but I never really cared for the last one.

Edit - Though I do think the last Scabs was just about perfect. This new one just doesn't quite evoke the character for me.

That gun on the back of Scabbs look's pretty big anyone got any guesses on what it could be.
