Blood Dragon Vampire
Castiron Knights, first appeared in Blood Bowl magazine 4.
Once Bretonnia started fielding Bloodbowl teams it did not take long until their undead neighbours of Nuln followed suit. The Blood Dragons; the one time loyal knights of Bretonnia, were determined to show the Bretonnians their new found powers and hoped to enthral great numbers of their knights with astounding displays of their brute force.
While the Bretonnians vehemently deny it there is no doubt that the Blood Dragons have significantly grown in number, the most skilled knights and lowly peseants come in their droves each year with the hope of being granted immortality and becoming a Blood Dragon Vampire. Though in truth most die serving as lowly thralls.
Blood Dragons are the most skilled warriors knights, known as Undead Knights Errand. From this alone it was clear that their St should St4, and I also felt adding Mighty Blow would be the best choice to represent their brutality and skill in combat. Also because they are considered knights in the Bretonnian form Av9 seemed appropriate as they are so heavily armoured. This was the main reason why their Ag was dropped, not because they are much less agile than any other vampire type but more because they cannot move around so freely with the heavy suits of armour they wear.
Unlike Necrach or Strigoi vampires they do feed on the blood of humans so Thralls were the clear choice for Linemen. But they have also been given the option for up to 4 zombies, this was because their fluff shows they have vast zombie hordes that have risen from around the cities of Nuln.
Grave Guard were added to the list as this troop choice is synonymous with Blood Dragons, though I could have stuck with Wights which are similar, I wanted the team to have more individuality and a lower average Ag than Wights would provide, while having a higher Av due to their associations with Bretonnia.
Season 2 Changes
180 games played 45% win percentage. Tier 1.5 team. No change needed.
249 games played 51% win percentage. Which is a tier 1 team. I expected the team to sit in the tier 1.5. Team locked in.
