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.

Orcs

by Coach Blacknife and Nigel Buckle (Coach Blacknife's Dugout)

Orcs

Orcs are a popular team. A really popular team. There are a couple of reasons for this aside from getting the majority of your players free in the box! They’re a good all round team, but you can also specialise them to a degree. They also epitomise Blood Bowl; they are as green as the turf, as tough as the standard issue boots and could even give the crowd a good challenge in a straight up fight!

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.

Wood Elf strategy

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

Wood-Elves

The Wood Elves are seldom seen outside their forests and glens, unless of course they’re playing an away game! Physically, they are very similar to their cousins, the High Elves, but have replaced arrogance and haughtiness with a deep and abiding love of nature and the forests.

Dwarf Strategy

Dwarves

Assuming you are tougher than your opponent, which should hopefully be the case for most opponents, the boring, probably unpopular, but obvious dwarf strategy goes like this.

Narkotic's Skaven Guide

by Brownrob (FUMBBL)

Skaven

I started playing Skaven in our league for the last season. I never played Skaven so far but was surprised by my overall success. I won 9 out 10 games and became League Champion. On the road to success I played against Dwarves, Orcs, Dark Elfs, Lizardmen, Human and Chaos. I wanted to compile my experiences in this guide which is meant for vanilla LRB coaches, though we don’t use stars. Some of my statements could sound strange to you, so constructive criticism is – as always – welcome.

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.

Khemri Strategy

by unknown (FUMBBL)

Khemri

The dead are unquiet in the blighted necropolises of the land of Khemri, ruled by the Tomb Kings and driven by black arts and hatred of living things…

If you ranked all the Bloodbowl playing races in terms of brutality and death-dealing, most coaches would agreed Khemri are right at the top of the list, right from the beginning. Some would say that they have little option but to butcher the opposition team, so poor are their ball-playing skills.

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.

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!
