Khemri Strategy Guide

by TuernRedvenom (Talk Blood Bowl)

Khemri

Let’s get right down to business. The biggest misconception about the Khemri team is that you should have no interest in winning games and only in causing casualties to play them. This is entirely false; Khemri can top the league just like any other team while causing a boatload of casualties to boot. Read on if you want to know how.

Nurgle's Rotters Strategy

by unknown (FUMBBL)

Nurgle

Nurgle’s Rotters strange starting skills enable them to be built into an excellent defensive team. Fragile for a primarily bashing team, they often use their skills to force mistakes from their opposition, using these to strengthen their position. The Beast of Nurgle is arguably the best Big Guy in the game, easily capable of occupying multiple opposition players.

Dug-Out of Doom

by Andy Chambers (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

Chaos

After a long and succesful career as coach of the Skavenblight Scramblers I finally decided to hang up my running shoes and try something different. I wanted to play with a slower but harder team than Skaven, a team with players which didn’t give me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach every time they got blocked. Although I was tempted by the Orcs, I was eventually seduced by the lack of subtlety of the Chaos team and the mouth-watering selection of hideous monsters that will play for them. After winning both the Spike Trophy and the Chaos Cup and getting to the semi-finals for the Blood Bowl, I must say that I’m delighted with my choice.

High Elves and tactics

by Stephan Babbage (www.blood-bowl.net)

High-Elves

Now getting into a debate over this is pointless, as there is no ‘right way’ to play High Elves. Let’s face it (speaking from a High Elf pointy eared view [point of view]) If you’re playing High elves then you ARE playing right. :)

But What ‘D’ has suggested is not the only ‘two ways’ of setting up a High elf team. So here’s my reply as a kind of ‘second opinion’. I don’t find Doug’s version offensive, but there’s more than one way to skin an opponent :)

Orcs

by Coach Blacknife and Nigel Buckle (Coach Blacknife's Dugout)

Orcs

Orcs are a popular team. A really popular team. There are a couple of reasons for this aside from getting the majority of your players free in the box! They’re a good all round team, but you can also specialise them to a degree. They also epitomise Blood Bowl; they are as green as the turf, as tough as the standard issue boots and could even give the crowd a good challenge in a straight up fight!

The Basics

by Stephen Babbage with Coach Blacknife (www.blood-bowl.net)

General

To me, Blood Bowl is a fun strategy game: yes, the most important element is strategy. In our league a team winning by luck alone is very rare; obviously luck does affect gameplay and can help determine the outcome of a game, but if the Coach is not using strategies and intelligence to win then they’ll find it difficult.

Wood Elf Strategy

by unknown (FUMBBL)

Wood-Elves

Wood Elves are without doubt the finest ball-players of Blood Bowl, with unmatched ability in scoring touchdowns. However, they are a fragile bunch, and are expensive to replace – many a Wood Elf team has retired before it even got going. Wood Elves, when coached well, are very hard to stop, and their fearless Leaping Wardancers are fearsome ball-winners too; however, in the hands of a novice coach, they often get crushed beyond hope of recovery. Wood Elves play a lightning fast offensive game, scoring in two turns as often as possible; drives that take longer are bad for their health.

The Orcs

Orcs

Most of the suggestions involve 11 players and at least as many Blitzers as BOBs. I’m going to suggest something else:

Master and Servant

Vampire

After the BBRC launched their rules updates making the Vampire team an official one it’s about time we figure out weather or not they actually can win games. At first glance, the Vampires look like the dream team; six players with the magic combination of Strength 4 and Agility 4, and access to just about any skill they want. They even have cheap linemen, to better allow you to buy more Vampires at the start.

Things That Go Bump...

by Gavin Thorpe (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

Undead

The Undead are one of the most rewarding teams to coach in Blood Bowl and i hope that the following hints and tips will encourage you to try them out. They do require a good sense of tactics, but when used properly they can be almost unstoppable, burying their opponents under the weight of their attack.
