Coach Balrog's Guide to Chaos

by Brownrob (FUMBBL)

Chaos

Looking around on the net you can find lots of strategy articles for playing the Chaos team. Unfortunately none of these have been updated to the new BB2k1 rules, so I think it’s time we revisited the Chaos team and see what options the new rules offer us.

Goblins

But before we start, Tricksta, the roster you sent to the list, is that a starting roster? I see no skills gained, but yet you have gotten an awful lot for your buck!

The Goblin Strategies

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

Goblins

Goblins, goblins, everywhere, on the pitch and in the air… So, you’ve picked out the most unique Blood Bowl teams to play and you want to win. Well, word to you, cheat! You picked Goblins because you love to cheat, maim, and do anything that is unsavory and ill-mannered. You picked Goblins because you have a certain mean streak, kind of a gang or hit man mentality. Or you have a malign sense of humor. Winning aside, playing Goblins is easy and fun. These little guys are gifted with a sense of mayhem. Because Goblins are so one dimensional, you will never have to fear organizing specialists.

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!

Chaos Dwarf Team Tactics

by Andy Meechan, with Harald Hedlund (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

Chaos-Dwarves

Ask anyone to name the worst team in Blood Bowl and Chaos Dwarf isn’t far from their lips. This doesn’t sound unreasonable for a team where it’s best players on par with the Dwarf Longbeards and it’s Linemen are notoriously stupid. Welcome then to the tactics you need to make your opponents shut up and take notice of you Big Hats and learn that the Hobgoblins are hardly notoriously stupid. Dangerously stupid perhaps…

Prepare to be enlightened.

Dark Elf Strategy

by unknown (FUMBBL)

Dark-Elves

Dark Elves are the nearest thing you will find to a bashy elf team. However, they lack dedicated Catchers, and their Throwers are more expensive than their High Elf rivals. Dark Elves are quick, but not too quick, and can either play for the two-turn TD, or run the ball in over three or more turns, using a very mobile and adaptable cage until making the break for the endzone, with runners waiting in scoring positions.

'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!

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.

Kill-Kill-Khorne Karnage

by David Yellope (www.blood-bowl.net)

Chaos

Owning the biggest OLBBL team in history is no fun sometimes. You hardly ever get games, you become a target for extry team with 5 DP’s and a willingness to use it.. but thereare its upsides too. You become a kind of “Game Ettiquette” enforcer. People will say “if You continue to do that, I see a game against the Goats in the future”, which usually provides the impetus for change in people’s behavior. But I digress. You want to try to get your Chaos team to the level that I have. Well, first off, Good luck. It took 4+ seasons for the Goats to get where they are today, and a lot of luck. But here’s some hints.

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.
