Treemen


Famous Teams
No Famous teams are mentioned by name, but rules for Treemen teams were first created during the 3rd edition era in Bloodbowl Compendium 1.

Background

Treemen teams used to exist for a short spell after the collapse of the NAF, though back then the teams were made up entirely of Treemen. They looked a formidable sight all lined up on the pitch and many a team were very wary of playing against them. It did not take long though before opposing teams learned just how disorganised and completely incapable of picking up the ball Treemen really were, not to mention that more often than not Treemen would spend the majority of the game sleeping.

The proud Treemen gave up on this idea rather quickly and went back to playing for Wood Elves and in Halfling teams. That is until now. As war subsided throughout the world and Blood Bowl played in its stead the forests of Athel Loren grew vast and the Sprites that inhabited the glades numbers grew beyond measure.

No one knows quite how or why they decided to start playing with Treemen but it was a symbiosis perfect for the sport. The Treemen reduced their numbers in teams to 6 which they felt was more than adequate to crush any foe in their wake whilst the Sprites zipped about the pitch dealing with the ball that Treemen have always had problems getting a hold off.

Although relatively new on the Blood Bowl circuit Treemen teams already draw big crowds for their mix of brute force and nimble runners.

Rationale

Treemen teams were first part of Blood Bowl in BB comp 1, though those teams were all Treemen which never really worked very well. Creating this roster was very straight forward. It is a Treeman team, so like Ogres start with 0-6 Treemen so that it follows the pattern of how existing Big Guy teams are made. I considered including Treekin in the team as well, but felt they added nothing and would probably detract from the enjoyment of playing with 6 Treemen.

The Stunty type players here are Sprites, which are the smallest forest spirits of the Wood Elf realm, while Treemen are the biggest forest spirits. So they felt a perfect fit. They are very small so had to be Titchy, though I made them slightly better than the existing Snotlings just because Snotlings are so bad their existence is pretty much pointless, also the team needed a little more Ma because the Treemen are just so slow.

Re-rolls like all Big Guy teams are 70k, representing the disorganisation and difficulty managing a team of such huge hulking player. Finally the Star Players I have given them is Halfling Star Players. This is because they have access to Deeproot, and also Wood Elf star players wouldn’t fit in with this teams play style. Allowing them to have access to such high agility players would lead to silly inducement shenanigans.

Season 2 Changes
250 games played, 38% win percentage. This puts them at the bottom end of tier 2, just above Tier 3. No change needed, roster is performing as expected.
