Subj: [BBOWL-L] Has Blood Bowl Been Dropped? Just a quick message to let people on the list know that, contrary to popular opinion, Blood Bowl has not been 'ditched' by Games Workshop. It's not going to be available in our stores, it's true, but the game and miniatures will remain available through from our mail order department, and we'll carry on printing support articles in the Citadel Journal. This has come about because, for a year or two at least, we're simply not going to have the human resource available to design anything new for the game in terms of rules or miniatures, and because of this we've decided to put the game on a back-burner until we can deal with it properly. It should be obvious from my first post that I'm looking forward to having a chance to work on the 4th edition rules. However I would like to say that I'm going to make sure that any changes I might make will be made available to people who own 3rd edition as a free 'Update Sheet'. This will be possible because 4th edition won't be like the 2nd and 3rd which were almost complete revisions of the game, it'll simply be a chance for me to sort out what I see as a couple of problem areas, as well as a golden opportunity to 'back-fill' the Blood Bowl miniatures range and fill in the gaps that are there. Hope that sets the record straight. Jervis *Disclaimer* This stuff is just our own opinions - it ain't official until it's in print!
