Oh yes! Halflings have been confirmed as one of the new playable races in Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition.
I have not made any secrets about the fact that I am a huge Blood Bowl fan and I am very much looking forward to the release of Legendary Edition towards the end of the year. It will be adding, amongst other things, a story mode and 11 new playable races.Now, I had my fingers crossed and it would seem that I am in luck. My first ever team in my school Blood Bowl league (referring to the table top game, of course) will be making an appearance. The Halflings are back!
These undersized players lack everything needed to make a good Blood Bowl team. They are too slow to outrun the opponent, too weak to beat them in a fighting game and can’t catch to save their lives. Players planning on taking a Halfling team had better be prepared for some quite epic defeats. But when they win, the victory is that much sweeter.
They don’t take to the field by themselves, however. They can enlist the help of the giant Treemen for their team. These huge wooden creatures offer some much needed power to the team, providing they don’t take root, of course.
Blood Bowl players who are looking for a challenge, and a bit of fun, should consider this race. They gave me a lot of enjoyment, all those years ago, and will do so again. I look forward to seeing which other races will be included in Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition.
