  • Dan started the topic Which team is right for you? in the forum Guides 1 day ago

    One of the most common questions for players new to the game is to ask which team is right for them. With 23 Games Workshop approved official team (RIP space frogs), and a few more unofficial ones that are popular in the community, it can be quite overwhelming to people new to the game. And we know that the fun you get can vary hugely depending on…[Read more]

  • TackleZone Star Divisions is a BB2 league. 48 of the best coaches in the world and MarzM are competing for fame and glory and a £100 top prize. The players are divided into 8 groups, all named after a Blood Bowl legend. Each coach will play each other coach once in a round robin with the top player from each division qualifying for the playoffs.…[Read more]

  • Fantastic news as we find out that a vote was held to decide if non-European teams would be allowed to enter Eurobwl. With Europe being the main continent in which Blood Bowl is played, and with many different countries having a strong player base, the international team competition known as Eurobowl has been held since 2003. Many of the best…[Read more]

  • Two of the largest criticisms levelled at AoS were the lack of lore and the inability to use older models outside of some pretty dated warscrolls. The new Battletome for the Cities of Sigmar addresses both of these points in spades! Firstly look at all the amazing middlehammer miniatures featured that now have warcrolls and, we hope, some of the…[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? As far as I have seen i…[Read more]

    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…[Read more]

  • Introduction
    Hello, and welcome to the first of my series of articles on positioning. One of the things I love about the game (other than smashing up Elves) is the combination it has between spatial positioning and risk calculation. Being good at working out the odds of a play working is a great advantage, but good positioning is how you modify…[Read more]

  • Hot on the heels of the recently previewed Grot wolf-rider warband is the release date for the full core set itself. Not much of a surprise given how this was the only large box set in the pipeline after the release of Aeronautica last month. The Warhammer Community article has a host of additional information. Not only is there the lovely…[Read more]

  • Two of the most unloved and overlooked of the first founding chapters are getting the codex supplement treatment this week. Cries of power creep are spreading through the community as both of these marine chapters have had some notable upgrades to their tabletop performance. But perhaps most importantly, given that the majority of 40k players are…[Read more]

  • Dan started the topic To stall or not to stall in the forum Blogs 6 months ago

    To stall, or not to stall; that is the question:
    Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The zings and pows of outrageous fortune,
    Or to take claw against a sea of elves
    And by opposing end them? To block: to skull;
    No reroll; and by a skull to say we end
    The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
    That is to one in thirty-six, ‘…[Read more]

    Introduction
    This year we’re looking to branch out from just focusing on Blood Bowl to explore other amazing games. Guild Ball is a game that I have been playing for a number of years casually, using the prize vouchers from my first Blood Bowl tournament win to buy the season 1 rulebook. As the game moves into its 4th season (version of the r…[Read more]

  • Another 3 teams here leaving us with just 3 more to go in the final article in this series next time. These are the nations that, although not favourites, will be seeking to cause an upset. A top 3 place is a minimum that these nations are aiming for – and who knows a sneaky win may be on the cards?

  • Dan started the topic Painting Competition Winners! in the forum Blogs 1 year ago

    Hello Blood Bowl fans! Back in the depths of time we announced that we were running a painting competition on our artwork section of this website. We had a fantastic response with the standard of quality just through the roof. I am very happy with my decisions to have five winners and also to pass off the difficulty of judging to JBone (@JBoneDS)…[Read more]

  • A key aspect of the game is momentum. Players who are knocked down cannot hit back, meaning they often stand up and get hit again. Players who are knocked down lose 3 squares of movement meaning that even if they are left free they often cannot get back to defend. You only get one blitz a turn. A key play that you are able to do at the start of a…[Read more]
