Blood Bowl PlayBook

Blood Bowl Playbook

by Andy Meechan, with Harald Hedlund (www.blood-bowl.net)

General

The following may be of use to you in a few ways: you’re a beginning Coach; you want to learn some new plays; or you want to see if your favourite cunning plays are original after all. This should be of use to you unless you fall into the last case; the Lateral Plays page is probably more your style – here we’ll see basic kick-off Offensive and Defensive setups and take you through a turn-by-turn guide on how the play should progress. If you’re a new Coach you’ll find the word ‘should’ gains more meaning as you get into the game: experienced Coaches know what I’m talking about.

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.

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.

Necromantic Strategy

by unknown (FUMBBL)

Necromantic

Necromantic teams are an interesting mix of power and scoring potential. This team is pretty much a Bashy team vs High speed teams and a speed team vs other bashers; note that the wolves must be placed so your opponent can block/foul them as little as possible as if he does he can kill them with a bit of luck, which will put your team in a bit of trouble.

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.

Winning with Woodies

by Pepe Mus (www.blood-bowl.net)

Wood-Elves

I believe there should be others out there better suited than me to write this article as I haven’t been playing Woodies for long, but as none has stepped forward to do it I have decided to be the one.

I started a Wood elf team mainly for aesthetical reasons: I really loved the quality of the 2nd ed. minis sculpted by Jess Goodwin, but also because the tactics that apply to them are totally different from the ones that apply to my all time team: the Undead. It was thus a refreshing change.

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.

Undead

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

Undead

In the Old World the dead do not rest easy. Vampires lurk in haunted castles in the sinister forests of Sylvania. Necromancers seek to escape their mortality by searching for forbidden knowledge within the pages of accursed books. In lost pyramids buried beneath the desert sands of the Kingdom of the Dead, the Liche-Lords rule over legions of corpses, their servants in death as they were in life. In the musty crypts of dead noblemen, tomb robbers freeze in terror when they head the clink of silver rings and movement behind them. And on the Blood Bowl field, players who died long go return to the scenes of their former glory and play Blood Bowl once again…

It's only a Game!

by Mike ‘Da Boffin’ Brooks (www.blood-bowl.net)

General

Mike is a sort of strange cross between a ‘skateboarding dude’ and a hippy. He’s sixteen and from Ipswich, where he regularly indulges in games of Blood Bowl, Necromunda, and Warhammer 40,000. Blood Bowl remains his first love, however, and he even has plans to write an article based on ‘Star Commentators’, including the sheepskin overcoat-wearing Halfling, John Mootson .. .. Groan!!!

'Ere We Go, 'Ere We Go, 'Ere We Go.

by Carl Brown (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

Orcs

Orcs have been playing Blood Bowl since the game was invented, and teams such as the Gouged Eye and Orcland Raiders are amongst the most succesful in the league. Orcs play a tough and hard-hitting game based around pounding their opponents into the turf before they stomp downfield to score. Orcs don’t tend to throw the ball much which is a good thing really as they are not very adept at catching it. It’s not that they can’t catch, it’s just that when the ball is in the air they tend to forget about it and get stuck into fighting with the nearest opponent instead!
