Hello Blood Bowlers! I have been asked a couple of times about basic setups, and so this brief article will demonstrate a few of these for those who might find them useful. All these will need to be adapted slightly for the particular team you might be using, but the general principles discussed will be very similar.
Defensive Setup 1

[I hope you will pardon me for this perfidious and pleonastic plundering of the performative alliteration of the Purplegoo’s progression of purported plays.]
This weekend past on the 16th and 17th February 2019 was the 14th edition of the Waterbowl tournament, hosted and run by the elegant and erudite Alex Wormal aka Leipziger. Traditionally one…[Read more]

Modern tournament Blood Bowl has become something of a trail of tiers, so popular have bonus skill packages for the weaker teams become. But what exactly what are we trying to achieve?

You know the drill by now! Just take a look at the snapshot from a game above and let us know what you would do in this situation. You are the Chaos Dwarf coach about to take your first turn. The Dark Elves have spilled the ball, how much pressure can you put them under? This is from a tournament game, so each team had 1.1m to spend and six skills…[Read more]

Here we go again! We are back and making a half-hearted attempt to produce these on a more than annual basis. As ever the name of the game is just to post what you would do in the situation above.

Welcome to another episode of What’s The Play. As always just tell us what you would do in the situation pictured. This time you are the Skaven coach, and although you find yourself 1-0 up, at the start of your turn your ball carrier is in no fewer than four opposing tackle zones! How will you escape? Both teams are playing their first game, so…[Read more]

Break Tackle has a number of uses, including:
- Not just increased mobility but the threat/potential of it. The best way to beat 6 Block Saurus is to piss around for a bit and then mark them all for the one turn you want to make a breakaway.

Or, which is better: Fan Factor or Coaches/Cheerleaders.
Ah, the age old question that has been troubling Blood Bowl coaches since the dawn of time, or at least 1993 when Third Edition was released: What shall I do with this 10K I have left over? I have spent many a sleepless night a-pondering and a-wondering whether there is a definitive…[Read more]
