I took his 1st ed stats and translated them. There was no block skill in 1st ed. Also in 2nd ed block meant something totally different (without block dice).

It was basically an extra point of strength on blocking, unless your opponent had the same level or higher block skill (in which case he got it).

For me, 2nd ed block translates better as ST than block itself.

I do question the skill of some of guys that did the 2nd ed to 3rd ed translations. And I don't think they should necessarily be considered gospel.

yeah roland, that guy is a nobody in the Blood Bowl world. I would go with HM's it is closer, though I might give him Tackle as well I think. He deffo needs Bone Head or really stupid as he suffered from stupidity, also should have Catch, Av8 is probably right, as he was tougher than a normal fling and had 2 wounds. Tackle as he had a special rule about never missing a tackle.

I would go

5 3 3 8

Really Stupid, Sure Hands, Dodge, Stunty, Right Stuff, Tackle, Catch Loner

Maybe thick skull and AV7. Thick Skull goes with his look. Without trying to work it out is thick skull av7 stunty much more detrimental?

A lot of the lists just aren't translated at all. Guus's for example are way off. I think he's looked at the figures/pictures and decided to make interesting stats from them, rather than trying to translate the 2nd ed players. As a lot of them are boring or too wacky.

I've started adding the Forgotten Star Players to a ruleset roster for anyone top use.

1. Search for "Forgotten Star Players" and add the roster to your ruleset (it's unplayable so nonone will be able to make a star team).
2. Go to each of your custom rosters and add them as stars as usual.

I'll be adding more stars soon.

Thx!

oh and thx to cowhead and others for the icons!

I believe I can add the rest of them easily if I would be added as manager of the roster.

EDIT: I already added all of them to our ruleset:

Check Custom Star Players at the bottom. We splitted them based on apoth/undead. Maybe apoth can be used on a star if it is in the right star player roster.
