'Ere We Go, 'Ere We Go, 'Ere We Go.

by Carl Brown (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

Orcs

Orcs have been playing Blood Bowl since the game was invented, and teams such as the Gouged Eye and Orcland Raiders are amongst the most succesful in the league. Orcs play a tough and hard-hitting game based around pounding their opponents into the turf before they stomp downfield to score. Orcs don’t tend to throw the ball much which is a good thing really as they are not very adept at catching it. It’s not that they can’t catch, it’s just that when the ball is in the air they tend to forget about it and get stuck into fighting with the nearest opponent instead!

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 Chaos Strategies

by Brian Giese (Blood Bowl Central)

Chaos

Some Blood Bowl teams have a variety of players to choose. Some have passers, catchers. Linemen, and then some elite player like wardancer, or witch elves. Chaos simply has Beastman and chaos warriors. Chaos does have 1 great star player and one decent one. Lord Borak, is indeed one tough S.O.B., but Grashnak Blackhoof is big and tough but has a flaw I feel most star players have. No block.

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.

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.

Asperon's take on ALL teams

by Asperon Thorn (Specialist Games Forum)

General

Human Teams

Humans
This team is an all around decent team. Thier strength lies in that they have no strengths or weaknesses. Everything is a 3+ roll. They have Movement 8 players, access to a Big Buy, access to all skills besides mutations. This team relies on its positionals but has enough of them to do what it needs to. In my opinion it is the best team to learn the game with because it can run, pass, bash, or finesse the ball into the endzone. After playing this team you can decide which part you like best and choose a team that is better for it. It is also a great team to revisit if you are bored with the one you chose, as it is a team that is decent with the style you like but refreshingly good at the parts you couldn’t do well before. It’s a good team throughout the TR ranges and don’t let anyone tell you different.

Master and Servant

Vampire

After the BBRC launched their rules updates making the Vampire team an official one it’s about time we figure out weather or not they actually can win games. At first glance, the Vampires look like the dream team; six players with the magic combination of Strength 4 and Agility 4, and access to just about any skill they want. They even have cheap linemen, to better allow you to buy more Vampires at the start.

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.
