Oh, completely missed Boa Kon'ssstriktr. Thanks.

I'm simultaneous very pleased they introduced a snakeman into the world and annoyed that they have done so whilst ruling our Slann as a race.

Thought I'd heard it on here. I could well be wrong. Things like the fact they refused to have Slann in BB2 and having a picture of a WHFB Slann inside one of the covers (think I heard PC say).

Or are you talking about Snakemen? In which case I'm simply referring to Boa Kon'ssstriktr. Think it's pretty clear there wont be a team, the fluff seems very similar to the Zoat.

gotcha

somehow I misread that your sentence linked the announcement of a snakeman with a recent denial of any chance of slann teams

not the case Smile

Box comes with 6 Eagle Warrior Linewomen, 2 Jaguar Warrior Blockers, 2 Python Warrior Throwers, and 2 Piranha Warrior Blitzers. They all come with Dodge, and your Blitzers have the new Hit and Run trait, which enables them to escape retaliation after they’ve performed a Block.

If they need to roll a dodge normally after hiting, it's seems like a fair skill.

I'm excited for the release. I like the anazons team, but a Norse level re-furbishing could make them a lot more exciting to build. hit and run could be a lot of fun as well.

As usual with most of the new teams' sculpts, hard time to see the difference between some positionnals...
In the case of Amazons : Hand on the ground and snake around the arm, check. Focal point to identify easily. Then the others... Who's who ?
BB2020 Orcs syndrome ?
Painting will help but it's sad that the sculpts don't do this job clearly.

Agreed
They all look basically the same to me, and none of them obviously relate to any kind of position
They're nice models, but too similar

I also really don't like how GW's teams every model you get 2x identical ones
In the majority of 3rd party teams, the sculpts are all unique

I've also just noticed the pretty funny balls, there's a crystal skull like from that recent Indiana Jones film that was set mostly in the jungle, and a snake that's swallowed a ball, like how snakes eat eggs Smile
