They don't look 3rd Edition Warhammer Fantasy Battle, and they don't look like in the PC game or 2nd Edition where they should resemble mad Football players. Actually they look too AoS for me.
MAYBE a color sheme wich looks more dwarven with darker tones and more leather might change it a little. But the beards are just over the top like on the Dwarf Hammerers/Longbeards in Plastic.
Grimwold Grimbreath is an BLITZER!
Wrote it to them in the app. Will hopefully be changed.

They're not bad, but I can't quiet put my finger on what I don't like about them. When looking at all the individual pieces, I like them all, but when I take them as whole minis, they just don't quiet do it for me - something about them just isn't Dwarfy enough. It almost feels like something from Manic and not GW.

Agree - they could easily be humans with long beards - the proportions just don't look Dwarf-like, at least based on the images presented. Painter did a poor job choosing a beard colours that looked exactly the same as the NMM gold on the helmets (top is main culprit).
Don't like the blocky feet either. It's very sci-fi. If it's a good game based on consensus, I'd pick up an oop set of dwarfs. Or see what the other races are like, Chaos is bound to get lots of love.
The orcs are OK in the boxed set, humans are dull as dishwater though.

The Armor on the Arms and Hands doesn't look brutal or menacing like in the older minis.
No Rollerball Stud Gloves. And the Knuckledusters look like golden stuff the Lizardmen use.

AOS has no place in Blood Bowl. What's the point setting it in the (Alternative) Old World if you're not going to adhere to the style.
I could forgive the Blitzer model with a different paint job but the Runner is too 'Tron/AOS' for me. The troll slayer is also very disappointing. More Fyreslayer, less Troll Slayer.

They are too angular. More sci fi then fantasy too me at least.

Not me I'd aim to pick up a 1st or 2nd ed BB team. (I am old though...)

I'm probabaly going to get them, I still have my 2nd edd oop set too.
I think though the slayer's beard will be getting a trim, not liking the hair being used as a jumping aid. Cut it back to the icon and should be ok.
