The Dwarven Strategies

by Robert Koper (www.blood-bowl.net)

Dwarves

Today we will discuss a little about Dwarves and their strategy.

First, the Dwarves are hampered by two things – their low movement and their inability to get more than four ball handlers ( those with an agility of at least 3 ). This makes them a team that scores only once or twice in a game. This means that he Dwarves concentrate on Defense.

High Elves and tactics

by Stephan Babbage (www.blood-bowl.net)

High-Elves

Now getting into a debate over this is pointless, as there is no ‘right way’ to play High Elves. Let’s face it (speaking from a High Elf pointy eared view [point of view]) If you’re playing High elves then you ARE playing right. :)

But What ‘D’ has suggested is not the only ‘two ways’ of setting up a High elf team. So here’s my reply as a kind of ‘second opinion’. I don’t find Doug’s version offensive, but there’s more than one way to skin an opponent :)

Amazon Strategy

Amazons

Though they are a lightly-armoured team, this is offset by all their players starting with Dodge. Amazons are best employed playing a fairly bashy, running game.

Norse Strategy Guide

by unknown (FUMMBL)

Norse

When starting a Norse team, it is important to consider that every single player (with the possible exception of the Big Guy) has Av 7. This means that you will inevitably lose players – a lot of players – unless you are very lucky. Thus a fan factor of nine isn’t a perk, but a necessity with this team.

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.

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.

Dem Bonez Dem Bonez

by David Yellope (Paradigm Central)

Undead

So you want to coach an undead team? What you need to know.

Ah, I see you all are budding necromancers, fresh off the cemeteries with your degree in necromantic magic and you are chomping at the bit to raise the fallen remains of some players and think you’re going to rise to the top of your chosen league without a sweat.

It’s not going to be that easy.

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.

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.

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!
