Yep, it's official. Games workshop will be re-releasing Blood Bowl later this year (most likely before Christmas). Apparently they're keeping the rules as is according to the Competitive Play Rulebook that is the current incarnation of the old LRB.

Initial box will include plastic Orc & Human teams, new style templates, dice, reversable pitch & dugouts, and the basic game rules. Might have mentioned they'll also be including a deck of Special Play cards too as well as a few Star Player cards. These latter two will be aded too with further supplements and likely offical tournament freebies as the designers intend to support independent tournaments.

Season One supplement (intended for simultaneous release) will have the League rules and cover another seven teams. Confirmed teams for miniatures so far include: plastic Dwarfs, plastic Elves, plastic Skaven & plastic Nurgle. Big guys, star players and later teams likely to be resin.

Oh yeah, and Morg will be rocking the Mohawk - bringing it back baby! ;)

OK, would have stuck up some photos too, but apparently my files are too big :O

As an addendum, the new pitch is slightly bigger/longer to accommodate larger ~40mm squares (still the same number of squares in pitch length and width, however, so don't panic) due to miniatures being bigger these days. Yep, the new teams were mounted on 32mm round bases which include a small hole at the front to pin your balls into. Ooo-er missus! :)
