Blood Bowl PlayBook


by Coach Blacknife with Mark Roberts (Coach Blacknife's Dugout)


The most basic of all Blood Bowl teams, the Humans get runners, passers and catchers combined with decent speeds and access to the right skill tables at the right times. Reputidly one of the easiest teams to Coach, this team can be very forgiving of early upsets and bounce back remarkably.

While not as specialised as other teams, Humans can provide their own challenge for league play as you will find it difficult to win against experienced Coaches. Oh, and they come free in the box!


Elf Strategy

by unknown (FUMBBL)


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 Strategy

by unknown (FUMBBL)


Dark Elves are the nearest thing you will find to a bashy elf team. However, they lack dedicated Catchers, and their Throwers are more expensive than their High Elf rivals. Dark Elves are quick, but not too quick, and can either play for the two-turn TD, or run the ball in over three or more turns, using a very mobile and adaptable cage until making the break for the endzone, with runners waiting in scoring positions.


Khemri Strategy Guide

by TuernRedvenom (Talk Blood Bowl)


Let’s get right down to business. The biggest misconception about the Khemri team is that you should have no interest in winning games and only in causing casualties to play them. This is entirely false; Khemri can top the league just like any other team while causing a boatload of casualties to boot. Read on if you want to know how.

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.


The Halfling Strategies

by M Spanke (


“Halflings? You must be kidding! You’re not? Oh all righty then… So, you’ve picked out one of the most unique Blood Bowl teams to play (the other one being Goblins of course!) and you want to know how to get them to win.” Well, word to you, why? You don’t pick Halflings to win. You pick Halflings because you have a sense of humor. If you don’t have a sense of humor, then you picked the Dark Elves. Winning aside, playing Halflings is easy and fun. These little guys are gifted with a sense of humor rather than the ability to play Blood Bowl. Because Halflings are skill-less, you never have to fear organizing specialists.


Fertigkeit Rasend unter der Lupe

by Kohli (


Mit dem folgenden Artikel gehe ich auf die Fertigkeit Rasend genauer ein. Beim Blood Bowl kann sich diese Fertigkeit als äußerst nützlich erweisen. Für denjenigen aber, der unvorsichtig ist und sich gar nicht auskennt, kann auch damit ins offene Messer rennen.


Things That Go Bump...

by Gavin Thorpe (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)


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.


Kill-Kill-Khorne Karnage

by David Yellope (


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.


Skaven Strategy

by Milo Sharp (


The vicious Skaven live far beneath the Olde World in their burrows and warrens, but occasionally venture above ground to plunder, pillage, or play Blood Bowl! The Skaven Blood Bowl game revolves around their blistering speed, frequently scoring four or more touchdowns within a single game. Their fascination with the mystical warpstone leads to a greater than normal incidence of mutations within the Skaven species, and the best of these are put to use on the Blood Bowl pitch.
