About this deal

I was hoping this element would be improved in the new team, perhaps by giving them new gimmicks that aren’t just Dodge on everything, but I can’t say I quite got my wish. It’s a bit weird to see a dedicated throwing piece after ditching the Catchers, especially as they’re still PA3+ but I suppose it’s not out of the ordinary. With so few positionals, there’s not going to be huge amount of variance outside of how many throwers and Linewomen you’re going to take. However, it’s not all good and some teams, especially Dwarves, who have a lot of Tackle abilities can nullify their biggest advantage. Extremely powerful at low tv, and falling off badly as the rest of the world gets its Block and Tackle .

They come ready with the Dodge skill, which also makes them a slippery addition to the team and sets the tone for the rest of the group. With a fearsome reputation as both warriors and players, it’s no surprise that these explosively agile teams regularly crush competition at the very top of the sport.

Also as you tend to keep Kick players out of opposing contact, having someone you can move in for a crucial assist without having to dodge them away can be handy. They are, entirely unchanged from the BB2 and Teams of Legends rosters and remain the fragile yet hard to knock. They’re not going to turn heads with their offensive capabilities, but they’ll always be right where you need them thanks to their inbuilt Dodge skill.

I like this roster for a couple of reasons: First, it starts with 12 players, giving you instant depth, which you’ll need with an AV8+ team. As I mentioned their team mates have more easily defined roles within the team, so when developing your Linewomen as well as the usual jobs of this player type, you should also look to fill in the roles that are missing within the team. With these Eagle Warriors as the backbone of your team, you'll find yourself dancing around the pitch, weaving in and out before striking hard.We're going to follow up with coverage soon on this much-anticipated expansion to the beloved Warhammer Quest: Cursed City dungeon-crawler, but we thought it was worth a special mention here. There have been some pretty major changes to the team, arguably one of the biggest changes alongside Bretonnians to Nobility (if you count that, which I do! Overall the changes are certainly interesting and I think everyone is going to have a different opinion on them. They really suit bright vibrant schemes and really are a refreshing change after dark and muted colours – if you want to paint something different they are well worth picking up as a fun little palette cleanser! You might be underestimating the ferocity of the debate surrounding rat ogres on Skaven teams, however, but that’s another article altogether.
