Anyone got the new special play cards from the skaven or dwarf decks? Please let me know, I have a few questions about them.

I'm also interested in the snotling special play cards from the previous edition (BB2016) that was released around August 2020. But doesn't seem like anyone got those.

Yeah I got those too.

Turns out BB is following Necromunda and Warhammer Underworlds and now includes faction specific cards in addition to universal ones 🤪 This works well with Warhammer Underworlds which has clear intention and even balance (official formats, banned and restricted lists). But arguably less functional in Necromunda. And now in BB too.

I'm also interested in the new (?) pitch rules for Skaven/Dwarf pitch.

What's strange is, each team in previous edition (BB2016) did have a handful of "faction specific" cards for the teams released then. They were universal, but had fluff and context for one specific team. And some of those have been copied over to current edition (BB2020) as universal cards!

To put it in other words, any faction specific card for this edition could potentially be an universal card in the next edition (BB2024?).

What really sucks about the new faction specific cards is that they often apply to specific players of that team, so not usably by any other teams.

Yep. I assume that they use the previous edition to test out tactic cards so they could consolidate them into a single proper set.

Similar to last edition I don’t think many tournaments or leagues (or even players) will actually play with the faction specific cards or pitch rules.

Turns out there's a french bb forum with a well of info including all sources, including the snotling cards from previous season which didn't exist anywhere else on the internet.

It is surprising that the team-specific decks allow you to choose them directly. If you purchase the special play card inducement (100k), you can randomize 1 of 6 decks. Or choose any available team deck (only Dwarf, Skaven and Necromantic so far). That means you have 25% chance of getting any one specific team card (draw 2, keep 1), but only 4% of drawing any one particular universal card?!?
