Gnoblars are among the weakest and the most cowardly creatures in The World. They are weaker than Goblins and even less intelligent. The fact they even play Bloodbowl at all is questioned by many, though they don’t actually have a choice in the matter. Each Gnoblar team is controlled by a pair of Maneater Ogres who keep them all in line, on threat of being eaten..
The Gnolbars are dirty cheats, using any trick at their disposal to win a game and avoid being eaten by their Ogre masters. Some are ruthless foulers, some use hidden weapons for tripping opponents up. There are even some known as Piggyback Riders that pair up and sit on each other’s shoulders. They try and hide this fact by dressing in standard Blood Bowl gear and pose as a regular sized player. It is debatable this is of any help at all really, and they are fooling no one. Referees once disallowed this practice but now turn a blind after the famous Tilean Ghoul referee Luigi Killeaner once tried to send a piggyback rider off then was swiftly dismembered by a Maneater and eaten post game.
Gnoblars stat line was pretty straight forward; they are basically just Goblins with a lower Av. The Trappers are the same though they have Prehensile Tail representing the traps they use to knock people off balance etc…
The Ogre is just a basic Ogre. The Yhetee is just a Yhetee from the Norse team. In official GW Bloodbowl this is what the Snow Troll is called.
The Gorger is pretty straight forward as well, Wild Animal is the obvious choice as they are frenzied killing machines. They are very tough so Av9 and Thick Skull seemed appropriate.
Season 2 Changes
Played around 30 games with a win percentage of 40%. This is not enough to draw any conclusions other than there was no desire from anyone to play with this roster. As such there were 2 changes made. The Gnoblar trappers got Av7 to make them worth taking. The Maneaters got G access.
Even with these changed people are not playing with Gnoblars so I will likely change them entirely in line with the Gnoblar army book that was once released with White Dwarf.
Season 3 Changes
In the third year this roster got changed in line with the Gnoblar army that was published in White Dwarf and a 2nd team from this region was made which centered more around the Ogre Kingdoms background. The reason for this was there isn't enough interest in the roster. Only 57 games played in the last year, win ration 45%.
Season 4 Changes
No changes needed, the roster is great fun, performing higher than expected, though still too few games to judge fairly. I am happy to lock this roster now.
