Tiny Plastic Spacemen took the above picture at the Nurnberg Toy Fair in Germany going on over the last few days. Although it was revealed that Blood Bowl was indeed on the list to get new models and hopefully a new edition, Games Workshop let the cat out of the bag.

2017 will be when we see Blood Bowl in a new edition. This does not mean that we wont see models beforehand, but it seems odd to advertise this game that far ahead, when GW main wont let out release details for the next couple weeks let alone a year in advance.
This was the announcement today from the Warhammer App.
"And as if that wasn't exciting enough, we are delighted to announce that a brand new edition of the original game of fantasy football will "touchdown" in 2017"
