Blood Bowl PlayBook

How to write your own Book of Grudges

by Simon Danielsson (Paradigm Central)

Dwarves

So, you’re thinking about playing Dwarves? Good Choise. They are IMO the best basherteam around (Orcs come close though). This is the story of how I built my very successful Dwarven team Zeus Slayers. It was used in a No Starplayers (except Secret Weapons), No Wizard (i.e. no Alchemist) league.

Skaven Tactics

by Coach Blacknife, Dr Pestilance, Coach Bubonic Plaguers, with help from Nigel Buckle (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

Skaven

Skaven are an uneasy blend of low armour and very fast players. The Wood Elves have an advantage in that all of their players are more agile – which balances the low armour; the Skaven have to rely on their low cost to keep them supplied with plentiful replacements.(Which seems appropriate for rodents really.)

The Skaven are fast, but they break easily. Actually it’s remarkable as to just how fast these rats can run – this can infuriate your opponent if they’re not used to it. A good thing too, as it can throw them off their gameplay!

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!

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.

The Undead Strategies

by Andy Welton (www.blood-bowl.net)

Undead

Undead are too powerful!! This is a common opinion (and I repeat opinion). But contrary to popular belief, (especially in the Pegasus League in Madison WI), Undead can be beat, they do have disadvantages.

Elf Strategy

by unknown (FUMBBL)

Elves

Elves are sort of a funny team. Some people argue that they’ve stolen the place of HEs and improved upon it somewhat. Of the four elven races in FUMBBL, the Elf roster has the greatest discrepancy between the positional players and the linemen. As a rule of thumb, they are best at a fast passing game and defense is best played aggressively, trying to cause and capture turnovers wherever possible.

Dark Elf Playbook

by Matt Brown (Games Workshop)

Dark-Elves

“Dark Elves are renowned for being evil and depraved – and that’s just the Cheerleaders!”. So begins the “Did you know…” for Hubris Rakarth, star blitzer of the Cowboys, and, as a Dark Elf coach of some time, I know the cruel fate that would befall me if I were to divulge too many of their secrets (not to say the number of games I would soon start to lose). However, the great God Nuffle (and his pet minion, Andy) doth compel me to speak, so speak I must. Here then are some thoughts on the Dark Elves. Of course, these are not exhaustive and you may well, should in fact, find yourself developing a few tricks of your own – but this will certainly get you off to a good start. Enjoy… and if Rakarth comes looking for me, tell him I’ve joined the Khemri Foreign Legion.

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.

Human Playbook

by David Candlish (Games Workshop)

Human

Blood Bowl is played across the entire Old World with hundreds of teams from all races fighting for glory, but by far the most common race playing Blood Bowl today are the ubiquitous Humans. There is something about Blood Bowl that stirs the soul of the average man or woman and they apply in droves to join teams across the length and breadth of the Empire.

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.
