The Next Step?
Hi Fumbbl! Long time no see :)

Today you have the special chance to give me your advice on the next step of my Blood Bowl collection.

My collection of Blood Bowl teams is expanding. Currently I own:
2 human teams
1 norse team
1 chaos team
1 undead team
1 lizardmen team
1 dark elf team
1 orc team
(the last two currently under construction by spubbbba, the greatest artist that ever was and ever will be).

So here's my question: in order to adequately cover the whole spectrum of Blood Bowl experiences, what does my collection lack?
I believe I have covered the middle ground nicely: humans, undead, and dark elves are different takes on the jack of all trades teams. Now what? I'm thinking about the extremes, either a super-bashy team (Dwarfs?) or a very quick team (woodies? skaven?)
I am also considering different routes, like special teams with peculiar ways to play them (like vampires, maybe?).

Coolness is also a factor. That's why I will never have an Amazon team, so spare me that at least :P

That's your take on it? Assuming you could count on unlimited resources (which I do not possess anyway, sadly), what's the team you would choose next?

flings ftw!!!!

yeah you should definitely try a stunty race to get the full BB experience.

Also the 'banazai' races (vampires and slann) are very unique and worth a try (be patient though - they get a lot better with time)

OGRES defenately. You will find them even pretty competitive at some tournaments with tiers.

You have no stunties.

You could try with Underworld, which would cover your lack of stunties and your lack of Rats!

My vote is for a speed team - either wood elves or skaven. But flings/gobbos would be cool too.

Stunty of some sort. Ogres are best.
Posted by the_Sage on 2014-10-20 19:49:21
Goblins!
Posted by Dunenzed on 2014-10-20 20:11:04
Slann.

Speed team. There are some great skaven minis out there, and I have no doubt that spubbbba could cook up some awesome conversions.

I find Vamps and Slann to be the two races I enjoy playing the most, and they end up feeling similar in some ways. Both will lead to some frustration but those are the two teams that allow you to do things that others can only dream of. Slann play something like a cross between woodies and humans and they are GREAT fun in leagues. Vamps play like... well, vamps. But if you like wild excitement in your games but don't want to go all the way to flings or gobbos then you can't do wrong with Slann or Vamps.

Underworld, I put together an Underworld Table Top team, & they have surprised me in more ways than one, I'm kinda hooked on using them at the moment.

Another Elf team, one that's designed for, & actually good at passing/catching. Wood Elves are impressive, but Pro & High are tasty. I now some players that swear by Pro Elves.

Vampire & Slann are unique, fun, can be devastating for you, or your opposition, depending on how your dice are rolling. But they are fun.

Skaven are nice.

Dwarves..., well are Dwarves. Chaos Dwarves..... well, that's flavour country.

Or what about Khorn if you like frenzy? Now they're something different. The high level of frenzy on the team can be truly chaotic.

Figurewise coolness is.......super retro looking Chaos Dwarfs. There are no cooler looking figures.
