I believe DK is right but there are 4 elf teams included : wood, high, dark and pro. Total of 7 as B said.

Ive also seen an official download for "classic" teams they are not currently planning to redo models for (though of course options are avaiable) in including vampire counts, ogres, halflings and a few more.

" Details for 7 team types (Skaven, Nurgle, Dwarf, Elven Union, High Elf, Dark Elf and Wood Elf) with background, rosters and famous examples of each;"

Ok so 4 of the teams are variation on Elf. My bad!

Interesting thread over at the Special Games forum on the contents and rules differences

Interesting comparison there. So the answer to what has changed is "not much" :-)

Interesting they are obviously concentrating on the fast teams (imho they always make for better games) though i wonder if the elfs might be a 3 in 1 pack - generic elves with conversion pieces for high/dark/wood etc? Would be a shame but understandable to justify plastic costs.

Hope it does well (as i imagine the success of BB will dictate the likelihood of other specialist games) but as the conversation went with my old gaming buddies at the weekend - i'd prefer a revised game rather than a rerelease. But hey, its not like there is a shortage of new games out there! :-)

The inclusion of that PDF with all old teams made me happy. We are planning a grumpy old men league next year. Very sound decisions and a well thought through release by the looks of it. I am surprised.

Just goblins, which were already pretty extreme in terms of being numerous but pathetic. You needed a sense of humor to play them.

Once upon a time though you could include some snotlings in a team of other races. They only counted as half a player, so you could have a lot of them and ogres could throw them farther than they could goblins.

Ogre teams used to use snotlings in the newest edition before this one
