Blood Bowl PlayBook

Chaos Teams

by Coach 'Krusher (Coach Blacknife's Dugout)

Chaos

Overall, the Chaos team has two obvious Strengths – the team’s overall ST (in conjunction with Horns and Strength Skill access) and its good overall AV (no player suffers from below-average armour).

However, there is one glaring Weakness (aside from price) – Chaos teams do not have any bona fide ballhandlers. With no Throwers and no players with a 4 AG, regular players (in this case, Chaos Beastmen) are asked to shoulder the load when it comes to scoring TDs.

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.

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.

The key to Skaven is their Linemen!

by Aaron Thies (www.blood-bowl.net)

Skaven

Get all your special (non-lineman) players first. I generally like this for any team. Emphasize acquiring both Storm Vermin ASAP to get them going. This is vital depending upon how your league uses Rat Ogres.

The Basics

by Stephen Babbage with Coach Blacknife (www.blood-bowl.net)

General

To me, Blood Bowl is a fun strategy game: yes, the most important element is strategy. In our league a team winning by luck alone is very rare; obviously luck does affect gameplay and can help determine the outcome of a game, but if the Coach is not using strategies and intelligence to win then they’ll find it difficult.

Dem Bonez Dem Bonez

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.

Halflings

by Coach Blacknife with Sam Williams (www.blood-bowl.net)

Halflings

Halflings? You must be kidding! You’re not? Oh all right then… So, you’ve picked out one of the two Blood Bowl comedy teams to play (the other one being Goblins of course!) and you want to know how to get them to win. It’s not going to be easy as these guys gifted with a sense of humour rather than the ability to play Blood Bowl. Never fear though as I will reveal tips to get your team up and running! Well, ‘running’ is probably an exageration; we’ll try ‘waddling’ first.

The Goblin Strategies

by Joe Harkleroad (www.blood-bowl.net)

Goblins

When I was planning my first league and trying to decide which team to play, I decided on Goblins because they were the weakest, sorriest team type out there. I had accidentally overlooked the Halflings, but Goblins are still 2nd to last.

High Elves

by Sigurd Garshol (Coach Blacknife's Dugout)

High-Elves

Dragon Warriors (henceforth known as Blitzers)
Basically a human Blitzer with an extra AG point, costing 10k. He can take both General and Agilirty skills. Did I hear Dodge? It is likely to be worth it, but Leave leap to the catchers and other schmoes.

Use your blitzers to punch holes in the oppositions lines, and to protect your friends. If the going gets tough, hand the ball over to him and let him score.

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.
