High-Elves

Okay. This is my attempt at detailing out high-elf team building strategy. I may give away a lot to rival coaches, but for those of you that are interested in stuff like this, here goes!:)

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.

The Undead Strategies

by WarNerve79@aol.com (www.blood-bowl.net)

Undead

I have been playing undead since first starting BloodBowl and I must say they are one of the best teams out there if played correctly.

People say that the other races can “dance” around undead, that is not true. Just look at the above average 7 movement on the ghouls, or the average 6 movement on the wights. Do not forget the vampires movement of 6 also, they might be big guys but they are worth the effort it takes to lose the off-for- a-bite drawback skill.

The key to Skaven is their Linemen!

by Aaron Thies (www.blood-bowl.net)

Skaven

Get all your special (non-lineman) players first. I generally like this for any team. Emphasize acquiring both Storm Vermin ASAP to get them going. This is vital depending upon how your league uses Rat Ogres.

Winning with Woodies

by Pepe Mus (www.blood-bowl.net)

Wood-Elves

I believe there should be others out there better suited than me to write this article as I haven’t been playing Woodies for long, but as none has stepped forward to do it I have decided to be the one.

I started a Wood elf team mainly for aesthetical reasons: I really loved the quality of the 2nd ed. minis sculpted by Jess Goodwin, but also because the tactics that apply to them are totally different from the ones that apply to my all time team: the Undead. It was thus a refreshing change.

Block and Tackle

by Robin Dews (www.blood-bowl.net)

Human

Human teams offer a Blood Bowl coach an almost perfect combination of speed, strength, resilience and agility. So says Robin Dews who ran a successful team called the Deathheads in our Studio League. We asked him to convince us…

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.

The Complete Chaos Dwarf Digest

by Babs (Paradigm Central)

Chaos-Dwarves

I’ve never thought of my Chaos Dwarf teams as the most successful teams I’ve coached – but over my entire 3rd Edition Blood Bowl coaching career – of the three times I’ve coached Chaos Dwarves – I’ve won the league three times. Quite suprising. I think that a primary reason (not the primary – but contributing) is that other players are not used to playing against the Chaos dwarfs and the element of suprise counts for upset win again and again.

Goblin Strategy Guide

by Rickard (FUMBBL)

Goblins

First of all, if you really want to play the gobbos, then you have to realize that this game is all about having fun, and the Goblin team is all about creating chaos. It’s takes a different strategy to play with goblins and it’s hard. On the other hand, it takes a different strategy to play against goblins” too. Ok, now that you know that, let’s go over to buying the team.

It's only a Game!

by Mike ‘Da Boffin’ Brooks (www.blood-bowl.net)

General

Mike is a sort of strange cross between a ‘skateboarding dude’ and a hippy. He’s sixteen and from Ipswich, where he regularly indulges in games of Blood Bowl, Necromunda, and Warhammer 40,000. Blood Bowl remains his first love, however, and he even has plans to write an article based on ‘Star Commentators’, including the sheepskin overcoat-wearing Halfling, John Mootson .. .. Groan!!!
