hi all ,i am new to the forum but have lurked here for a while. I bought elfball a few years ago but have just got back into it as i found my paints and decided to paint all my teams :)

After looking through the site to buy a new team to paint i have found Iam not really drawn to any teams because the pictures of the teams dont look appealing to me

Ill give an example, if you look at the gridiron teams http://www.impactminiatures.com/minis/big/SF_100.jpg  I think wow i want that team. (not because its women bunnys either hehe)
then i look at the samhaino team by you guys http://www.impactminiatures.com/minis/big/SamhainoElfballTeam.jpg
and i think they dont even look like they match

i know they are good but thinking if i was a newcomer to the game i would not be that impressed.

iam not faulting the game or miniatures in anyway, i think it is an amazing game plus i have 3 teams allready but it would be more pleasing to see teams on the team page as one picture and they look like a team(all painted the same) and maybe a little writup about them similiar to gridiron.
Iam only saying this as constructive criticism as i would like this game to be more popular. I only found out about this game through BGG and have not really seen it anywhere else (I dont follow miniature sites though) it would be good to see it in some of the online shops (gameslore,boardgameguru,etc) but i guess that would bump up the cost alot but it would make the game more well known

Ill be posting my painted minis(by no means pro) on BGG just to raise awareness.

cheers dylan

I fully take on board what you are saying Dylan but for some of the teams I just have painted images sent to use by folks (and don't own the figures themselves).

Getting painted images together is unfortunately not inexpensive.   Shadowforge for example paints them in house and photographs.   We don't have anyone in house that has time to paint (I can paint ... but time I don't have).

We are working on doing it.  If you look at the newer teams like the Apes of Wrath and Scotlings ... those were done as single team paint work.

Play them as Siringit or as Orcs either one should work well.

Will they be getting  unique team stats eventually?  Iam only asking because I would like both the other teams and won't feel the same playing them with the same stats.

If we come out with a new edition of Elfball ... we plan on replacing the Orc team with the Apes of Wrath.    It will be the same team but the Silverback will have different stats than the Troll.

The reason for this is that the Orc team is the only Elfball team that Impact! has not yet produced and given the current sales climate of fantasy football ... we do not have one planned in the long term at this time.

Although trying to do a new edition of Elfball is something Chris and I do discuss.

why not do an expansion? you can cover any errors you have and maybe introduce some new teams and star players. would be cheaper to buy without the board and main rules and have extra stuff to add to the game.

I know i would buy it :)

An expansion is really a pretty cool idea as opposed to a reboot. New teams with expanded or revised rules and game variations in a bound book is very appealing. Perhaps your Boulder Brawl/Shoveball game idea could be included as an Elfball variant adoptable to existing teams.

While the whole Chibi thing just does nothing for me, I remain an Impact! Elfball/FF fan.

We are almost sold out of the game.   It will soon be either a reboot or removing it from the store.

Reboot it will have to be then ;)
Do you think an expansion could be in the works though? As I own the game iam not going to buy a new updated main box but I would get the expansion. Especially if it had new teams and star players, weapons, weather, new skills, dungeon brawl, etc etc. Doesn't really matter if it cost the same as the main game as long as the content is plenty.
