Dark Elf Strategy

by unknown (FUMBBL)

Dark-Elves

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.

'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!

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.

High Elves and tactics

by Stephan Babbage (www.blood-bowl.net)

High-Elves

Now getting into a debate over this is pointless, as there is no ‘right way’ to play High Elves. Let’s face it (speaking from a High Elf pointy eared view [point of view]) If you’re playing High elves then you ARE playing right. :)

But What ‘D’ has suggested is not the only ‘two ways’ of setting up a High elf team. So here’s my reply as a kind of ‘second opinion’. I don’t find Doug’s version offensive, but there’s more than one way to skin an opponent :)

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.

High Elf Tactics

by Robert Arnholm (Blood Bowl Home of @rnholm)

High-Elves

The main problem with High Elves are the lack of Big Guys. All of the other team may begin with a big strong (stupid) guy, but not you. If your playing in a rough league with a lot Orcs, Chaos, Dwarfs and Undead teams this can be a problem. But remember, while you dont have an Armour Value[AV] of 9 you got somethine else.. With Agility 4 you can dodge out and minimize your opponents block opportunities. Overall the High Elves are fairly lowpowered, and their movment are generally insignifficant, but not that bad. With AV of 8 they can take a hit or two but they won’t survive in the long run.

Narkotic's Skaven Guide

by Brownrob (FUMBBL)

Skaven

I started playing Skaven in our league for the last season. I never played Skaven so far but was surprised by my overall success. I won 9 out 10 games and became League Champion. On the road to success I played against Dwarves, Orcs, Dark Elfs, Lizardmen, Human and Chaos. I wanted to compile my experiences in this guide which is meant for vanilla LRB coaches, though we don’t use stars. Some of my statements could sound strange to you, so constructive criticism is – as always – welcome.

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.

Khemri Strategy Guide

by TuernRedvenom (Talk Blood Bowl)

Khemri

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.

The Art of Blocking

by Ian Williams (Games Workshop)

General

Blocking is one of the fundamental elements of Blood Bowl, and, for many of the ‘bashing’ teams it is absolutely crucial to having a successful team. For many of the ‘flair’ teams it can be just as important to understand how your opponent may exploit your weaknesses. Get your blocks wrong and you won’t win many games; get them right and victory will be yours. This guide is intended to help coaches get the most out of their blocking.
