Concept: I've seen a LOT of dwarf coaches pop up on fumbbl, and I wondered... what if there was a roster that just said "banjo dwarves"? I was then watching Aliens and noticed they had really sharp claws. Then this happened in my brain:


0-16 Infant Warriors 50k 6 3 3+ 5+ 8+ Claws G ASP
0-2 Stalkers 85k 8 3 3+ 4+ 8+ Claws, Dodge AG SP
0-2 Adult Warriors 90k 7 3 3+ 5+ 9+ Block, Claws GS AP
0-2 Praetorian Guards 110k 5 4 4+ 6+ 9+ Claws, Prehensile Tail GS AP
0-1 Matriarch Queen 160k 4 5 5+ - 10+ Claws, Loner (4+), Mighty Blow (+1), Prehensile Tail, Unchanneled Fury S AGP
Re-Rolls: 50k each
Apothecary: yes
Star Player: I don't friggin' know

Shouldn't everyone have Projectile Vomit to represent all that acid blood spraying about?

Except xenomorph acid cannot to hurt the alien, so you'd need Projective Vomit with a +1 modifier

I cannot really imagine the aliens being quite this wussy. Wink
For sure, they struggle at distance vs firearms but toe to toe?

"Because just one of those things managed to wipe out my entire crew..."

Surely, they would need a special trait. CAFB.

Every time an alien suffers a cas, the attacker must roll for armour vs claw & MB(+1).
Maybe even every non alien in an adjacent square.

You're gonna need to get working on that Predator team.

Actually, surely the linemen should be Facehuggers

You could make the facehuggers a kind of beer boar positional, as I think making stunty linos would detract from the 'fuck dwarfs' aspect, which is clearly the most important bit.

Hey, maybe you haven't been keeping up on current events, but we just got our asses kicked, pal!

It's game over man! Game over!

I had a few more Blood Bowl applicable lines from one of the greatest Sci-fi movies of all time but they would require extensive censorship.

Anyone have more to add?

Probably the most useful. But you probably hear it often enough already.

"Well, that's great. That's just ******' great, man! Now what the **** are we supposed to do? We're in some real pretty shit now, man!"

-------------------------------

"Oh dear Lord Jesus, this ain't happening, man... This can't be happening, man! This isn't happening!"

-------------------------------

"Whatever you're gonna do, do it fast!"

-------------------------------

"How do I get out of this chickenshit outfit?"

-------------------------------

"Not bad for a human."

-------------------------------

"Is this gonna be a standup fight, sir, or another elf hunt?"

-------------------------------

"I work for the company. But don't let that fool you, I'm really an okay guy."

-------------------------------

"Man, I'm telling you, I got a bad feeling about this game."

Nervermind blood bowl, I think Aliens Vs Dorfs would be an excellent addition to the franchise Smile

I was looking through my icons earlier for something completely unrelated and came across these:

Completely forgot I had an Alien team (sadly in the old HTML format):

Ripley: Just tell me one thing, Burke. You're going out there to destroy them, right? Not to study. Not to bring back. But to wipe them out.

Burke: That's the plan. You have my word on it.

Ripley: All right, I'm in.

That one pretty much sums up how I feel by about turn 2 in most game.
