Chaos

I honestly believe I have found the best Chaos Starting Team ever and I am willing to share my information with you. This is my starting team and it is worth trying:

Vampire Strategies

by Reinier van Noort (Paradigm Central)

Vampire

After having played Bloodbowl for some time (ever since 3rd edition was re-issued, somewhere in the second half of the nineties), I consider myself an experienced BB player, having played Humans/Orcs in the very beginnings, Dwarfs (for a very long time), Chaos Dwarfs, Chaos, Dark Elves and now Vampires in 4th edition.

After guiding my beloved Vampires through only 9 games, of which I must admit I only won the last 3, I’m already starting to be brave enough to put some information on the net regarding how to play with Vampires.

The Complete Chaos Dwarf Digest

by Babs (Paradigm Central)

Chaos-Dwarves

I’ve never thought of my Chaos Dwarf teams as the most successful teams I’ve coached – but over my entire 3rd Edition Blood Bowl coaching career – of the three times I’ve coached Chaos Dwarves – I’ve won the league three times. Quite suprising. I think that a primary reason (not the primary – but contributing) is that other players are not used to playing against the Chaos dwarfs and the element of suprise counts for upset win again and again.

High Elf Tactics

by Robert Arnholm (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

High-Elves

The main problem with High Elves are the lack of Big Guys. All of the other team may begin with a big strong (stupid) guy, but not you. If your playing in a rough league with a lot Orcs, Chaos, Dwarfs and Undead teams this can be a problem. But remember, while you dont have an Armour Value[AV] of 9 you got somethine else.. With Agility 4 you can dodge out and minimize your opponents block opportunities. Overall the High Elves are fairly lowpowered, and their movment are generally insignifficant, but not that bad. With AV of 8 they can take a hit or two but they won’t survive in the long run.

The Undead Strategies

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.

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.

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.

Skaven Strategy

by unknown (FUMBBL)

Skaven

Skaven are the undoubted speed merchants of the Bloodbowl arena; their play revolved around scoring fast, and using their speed to pressure the opponent when defending; their low armour generally doesn’t allow them to get into a protracted fight.

The Halfling Strategies

by M Spanke (www.blood-bowl.net)

Halflings

“Halflings? You must be kidding! You’re not? Oh all righty then… So, you’ve picked out one of the most unique Blood Bowl teams to play (the other one being Goblins of course!) and you want to know how to get them to win.” Well, word to you, why? You don’t pick Halflings to win. You pick Halflings because you have a sense of humor. If you don’t have a sense of humor, then you picked the Dark Elves. Winning aside, playing Halflings is easy and fun. These little guys are gifted with a sense of humor rather than the ability to play Blood Bowl. Because Halflings are skill-less, you never have to fear organizing specialists.

Putting The Boot in

by Ian Williams (Games Workshop)

General

For as long anyone can remember, kicking a player when he is down has been an integral part of the game. In fact, many Blood Bowl players would happily stamp on their own mother, let alone a dazed star holding his bits, if they thought it gave them an advantage. Even the daftest Goblin knows that a well-timed kick can win the adulation of the crowd and maybe even the game!
