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.

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.

Skaven Playbook

by Paul Gegg (Games Workshop)

Skaven

It’s late in the match, the opposing star player is looking for a last-second game-winning touchdown and your fans are already drifting off to get drunk. But then one of your players somehow fashions a block on the ball-carrier and the ball squirms loose – another player picks it up by his fingertips and launches a hopeful pass into opposition territory – your marked catcher pulls it down, dodges out and dances into the Endzone for the winning score. Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat – is there a better feeling? This end to end play is beyond most teams but with the awesome Skaven, it isn’t too uncommon. Sometimes they really can achieve the seemingly impossible.

Halflings

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 Strategy

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

Skaven

The vicious Skaven live far beneath the Olde World in their burrows and warrens, but occasionally venture above ground to plunder, pillage, or play Blood Bowl! The Skaven Blood Bowl game revolves around their blistering speed, frequently scoring four or more touchdowns within a single game. Their fascination with the mystical warpstone leads to a greater than normal incidence of mutations within the Skaven species, and the best of these are put to use on the Blood Bowl pitch.

The Elf Playbook

by Marc Harrington (Games Workshop)

Elves

As a long time fan of the Blood Bowl game I had eagerly awaited the arrival of the new Elf team and the models did not disappoint in the least. However, with the armour of Wood Elves and the speed of High Elves I was a little disappointed with the stat lines – that was, until I started to play.

How to write your own Book of Grudges

by Simon Danielsson (Paradigm Central)

Dwarves

So, you’re thinking about playing Dwarves? Good Choise. They are IMO the best basherteam around (Orcs come close though). This is the story of how I built my very successful Dwarven team Zeus Slayers. It was used in a No Starplayers (except Secret Weapons), No Wizard (i.e. no Alchemist) league.

Dark Elf Playbook

by Matt Brown (Games Workshop)

Dark-Elves

“Dark Elves are renowned for being evil and depraved – and that’s just the Cheerleaders!”. So begins the “Did you know…” for Hubris Rakarth, star blitzer of the Cowboys, and, as a Dark Elf coach of some time, I know the cruel fate that would befall me if I were to divulge too many of their secrets (not to say the number of games I would soon start to lose). However, the great God Nuffle (and his pet minion, Andy) doth compel me to speak, so speak I must. Here then are some thoughts on the Dark Elves. Of course, these are not exhaustive and you may well, should in fact, find yourself developing a few tricks of your own – but this will certainly get you off to a good start. Enjoy… and if Rakarth comes looking for me, tell him I’ve joined the Khemri Foreign Legion.

The key to Skaven is their Linemen!

by Aaron Thies (www.blood-bowl.net)

Skaven

Get all your special (non-lineman) players first. I generally like this for any team. Emphasize acquiring both Storm Vermin ASAP to get them going. This is vital depending upon how your league uses Rat Ogres.

Orc Playbook

by Carl Brown (Games Workshop)

Orcs

No matter what team you use when playing Blood Bowl you quickly notice that each team has its own strengths and weaknesses. Elves are agile but lightly armoured, Dwarfs are slow but good at blocking and Orcs? …well, they pack a punch in a fight, but that’s not all!
