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.

Dwarf Teams

by Mike (www.blood-bowl.net)

Dwarves

Some people will claim they’re hard to win with, but a few basic strategies and they become scoring machines

Starting off in the league, Dwarfs generally have the advantage over other teams compared to other teams. Everyone except the runners having Block is very handy.

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.

Amazon Strategy

by unknown (FUMMBL)

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.

Kill-Kill-Khorne Karnage

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.

Lizardman Strategy Guide

by unknown (FUMBBL)

Lizardmen

The greatest asset of the Lizardmen is their speed; the Skinks are lightning-fast with Ma 8, and even the strong Saurus have Ma 6. The Kroxigor is considered to be one of the best Big Guys out there being able to tie up opposing players with Prehensile Tail. Many coaches who have not played Lizardmen before struggle against them, mostly because they are so different. In the hands of a skilled coach, Lizardmen are very hard to beat.

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.

Goblin Tactics

by Robert Arnholm (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

Goblins

Most of all you Blood Bowl [BB] players says that the Halflings are the worst BB players but then you haven’t played Goblins yet.

Goblins looks like Halflings but they don’t have those big trees. Most of the Halfling coaches rely upon their Treemen to score 1-turn Touch Downs [TD]. But since the Goblins[Gobbos] only have their Trolls with Always Hungry and Really Stupid, and both these skills make it very unreliable to throw those small fellows… But on the other hand the have a lot of secret weapons and last but not least they gain a lot of “Dirty Trick-Cards” from their Wizard.
