Game Workshop Blood Bowl rare and limited Miniatures

Games Workshop - very rare - The Original Spike Trophy

The Original Spike Trophy is one of the more rare Blood Bowl miniatures. Just about 500 are made. If a collector got one of them, he will hardly sell this miniature again! 🙂

Games Workshop - very rare - "Mighty Zug"

Games Workshop very rare „Mighty Zug“. „There was a very limited edition for GWstaff.“ This was the first information i got once from a Spanish BBforum.
Then some of this miniature has been cast privately and were sold on ebay. After this there was an interesting posting at TalkFantasyFootball about an kind of limited cast run for the members the Forum in 2010. I think, i got my miniature at the end from this. But i could be wrong. I painted this miniature for my GW 5th edition Human team.

Games Workshop - Limited Editon - Skaven Gutter Runner

„The Gutter runner and Lizardman Cheerleader have really only had a few spins so less than 500.“ (Andy Hal).
I dont believe this anymore as GW used this miniature later as „Giveaways“ for winner of Pubquiz like at the BB2004 tournament!

Games Workshop - Limited Editon - Lizardman Cheerleader

„The Gutter runner and Lizardman Cheerleader have really only had a few spins so less than 500.“ (Andy Hal). This miniature was really difficult to get at first. Later this miniature was sometimes a price of GW sponsored tournaments. I got my second one from Andy Hal for an article i wrote for the Fanatic website.

Games Workshop - very rare - Blood Bowl Human Referee - 2004

This miniature is showing a Human Coach, smoking a cigar, shouting and pointing somewhere. There is also a water bucket at the cast. The tag on the front side shows „BLOODBOWL“ and on the other „GW 2004“. This is a genuine Games Workshop model that never war released for general public.

Until September 2008 I did know about four of this miniature and saw just one at a US-Ebay-auction once which i lost. Finaly i got this miniature directly from a Italian TFF member… Thx Roberto ! 🙂

Games Workshop - extremly rare - Darkelf referee 2003

I had this miniature in my hands as a Games Workshop sponsered price once at the Morg Mannheim Massacre Tournament 2003. A pity that i chose as „Best Painted“ price of this tournament a pre-released minotaur of the 5th edition and not this Refereee miniature! I never thought in this time, that this Darkelf would be one the most rarest GW BB miniatures later.

Something about the ebay prices for this miniature: I „missed“ a chance to buy this miniature in 2016 for more than £400. In May 2020 one of those miniatures ended at ebay for crasy £1.360! But at the end the deal was cancelled as there was a general suspicion about the originality of the miniature. In March 2021 another of those miniatures was sold at ebay for US $2,425.09/ £1,754.70 !!!

Games Workshop - extremly rare "Unreleased Human Cheerleader"

This unreleased human Cheerleader was sculpted by Mark Bedford and painted by Giuseppe „Axia“ Chiafele.

„It was an unreleased sculpt made by the Great Mark Bedford, in fact he gave me this copy to see it painted!“ Giuseppe Chiafele, 2023.

Thx for the pict and the info, Giuseppe!
