Can the powers that be make this a sticky? This is gold in current chaotic times.

What about Waaagh! Drummer?
(thinking it can be used by all teams as a Team Anthem like the Haka or Icelandic Vulcano!


Nice work!

They were sold by GW, along with a rules insert, at a tournament event last year. The NAF has decided to declare them as official in tournaments from Feb 2017 forward (in fact, that's where I got the rules for them.)


How balanced would you say they are?

I don't think there's anything game-breaking about them:

Rasta Tailspike, Skaven Lineman
Cost: 110,000
MA: 8 ST: 3 AG: 3 AV: 7
Skills: Loner, Catch, Extra Arms
Teams: Skaven

Rasta is a Skaven Lineman (base price 50k) with +1 MA (30k), Catch (30k, a doubles), and Extra Arms (another 30k). Loner should reduce his cost a bit. He should be priced about 120k, but he's an overpriced catcher with no skills (other than ST3) to help him hold onto it.

Frank N. Stein, Flesh Golem
Cost: 210,000
MA: 4 ST: 5 AG: 1 AV: 9
Skills: Loner, Break Tackle, Mighty Blow, Regeneration, Stand Firm, Thick Skull
Teams: Human, Necromantic, Undead

Base cost for a Flesh Golem is 110,000, so add +1 ST (50k), Break Tackle, and Mighty Blow (40k total), minus a bit for Loner. I think he's actually a bit overpriced, but he's a ST5 guy with no nega-trait, so I think he's pretty well balanced.

Bilerot Vomitflesh, Bloater
Cost: 180,000
MA: 4 ST: 5 AG: 2 AV: 9
Skills: Loner, Dirty Player, Disturbing Presence, Foul Appearance
Teams: Chaos, Nurgle

Base price for a Nurgle Bloater is 110,000. Bilerot loses Nurgle's Rot (for some reason), but gets +1 ST (50k) and Dirty Player (20k). But let's be honest, who's going to be fouling with their ST5, 180k Star Player? Hopefully no one, unless the game is in the bag or you have bribes. Again, he's a little overpriced but for a ST5 player with no nega-trait, that's okay, I think.

I wouldn't have any compunctions about allowing these in my league. I might even say Bilerot automatically gets Nurgle's Rot IF he's playing for a Rotters team.

If you want the art card type versions of the rules for the classic Stars, you can find them by scrolling through the pictures on the Blood Bowl Facebook page.

GW just released alternative rules for the special play cards that take their powerlevel into account (what a shocking concept...). 3 different versions to deal with it. I like the first one best from a time spend and balance point of view. The second one looks fun, but I am afraid it falls apart as both players will just draw from the mayhem deck and pick the best card there. Also consumes more time pre game. Third one is pretty stupid.

Yep, I've been pretty busy with work and family concerns lately, but I'll try to get this all updated soon.
