Blood Bowl PlayBook

Human Strategy Guide

by AFK_Eagle (FUMMBL)

Human

Humans are the great all-rounders of Blood Bowl; depending on their opposition, they can run the ball, pass it, or stomp some heads! This can even happen halfway through a drive, when a change of tactics is needed. They started off as the average Blood Bowl roster, but recently introduced new races have pushed them more towards the light-weight end of the spectrum.

Halflings

by Coach Blacknife with Sam Williams (www.blood-bowl.net)

Halflings

Halflings? You must be kidding! You’re not? Oh all right then… So, you’ve picked out one of the two Blood Bowl comedy teams to play (the other one being Goblins of course!) and you want to know how to get them to win. It’s not going to be easy as these guys gifted with a sense of humour rather than the ability to play Blood Bowl. Never fear though as I will reveal tips to get your team up and running! Well, ‘running’ is probably an exageration; we’ll try ‘waddling’ first.

Skaven Tactics

by Coach Blacknife, Dr Pestilance, Coach Bubonic Plaguers, with help from Nigel Buckle (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

Skaven

Skaven are an uneasy blend of low armour and very fast players. The Wood Elves have an advantage in that all of their players are more agile – which balances the low armour; the Skaven have to rely on their low cost to keep them supplied with plentiful replacements.(Which seems appropriate for rodents really.)

The Skaven are fast, but they break easily. Actually it’s remarkable as to just how fast these rats can run – this can infuriate your opponent if they’re not used to it. A good thing too, as it can throw them off their gameplay!

Humans

by Coach Blacknife with Mark Roberts (Coach Blacknife's Dugout)

Human

The most basic of all Blood Bowl teams, the Humans get runners, passers and catchers combined with decent speeds and access to the right skill tables at the right times. Reputidly one of the easiest teams to Coach, this team can be very forgiving of early upsets and bounce back remarkably.

While not as specialised as other teams, Humans can provide their own challenge for league play as you will find it difficult to win against experienced Coaches. Oh, and they come free in the box!

Dark Elf strategy

by Milo Sharp (www.blood-bowl.net)

Dark-Elves

The Dark Elven Blood Bowl game is balanced in speed and ball handling. With good coaching, they can become excellent players and compensate for their lack of strength and star players.

Adding lateral thinking to your game

by Andy Meechan (www.blood-bowl.net)

General

You’ve played against the same Coaches with their same teams and their same tactics for a lot of games. You’ve no doubt sussed their favourite plays and have, hopefully, developed some nasty counter-plays of your own. You’ve also noticed that they use similar tactics no matter what race they Coach. No doubt they know the same about you.

What you need is to ‘throw them a curve’ in your plays, let them think and react and not respond like automata. Put some interest into your games again – this is, of course, where lateral thinking comes in.

Fertigkeit Rasend unter der Lupe

by Kohli (www.kohli.de)

General

Mit dem folgenden Artikel gehe ich auf die Fertigkeit Rasend genauer ein. Beim Blood Bowl kann sich diese Fertigkeit als äußerst nützlich erweisen. Für denjenigen aber, der unvorsichtig ist und sich gar nicht auskennt, kann auch damit ins offene Messer rennen.

Dark Elf Tactics

by Sigurd G (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

Dark-Elves

Overall, the Dark Elves start out as a fairly lowpowered team. Their movement is generally insignifficant, but not to scoff at either. Their AV of 8 allows the to get stuck in and survive a few punches. They lack high-speed catchers, and they are not going to win any fist-fights.

The Undead Strategies

by Andy Welton (www.blood-bowl.net)

Undead

Undead are too powerful!! This is a common opinion (and I repeat opinion). But contrary to popular belief, (especially in the Pegasus League in Madison WI), Undead can be beat, they do have disadvantages.

Halfling Strategy

by Tom Anders (Talk Blood Bowl)

Halflings

In October so many things might change on the Flings in regards to the following 3 things: 1) Free Master Chef with experimental BB Mag rules 2) No more Ogres 3) On-Pitch Take Root becomes an experimental rule

All 3 of these things will get voted on by the BBRC this year .. the outcome of those votes will dramatically change the team building tactics.
