How many players have you got of what types and what race ?

Not a simple answer without this info

... in that the more info the better....

GENERALLY, an apothecary is a good investment in that most teams players cost at least 50k.... If the apothecary saves a more costly player, then it has paid for itself.... If your an "odds" man, then higher starting armor values THEORETICALLY lessen the need.... However, there's always that jackass set of rolls that kill off the treeman.... :puke:

So, without any specifics, I would tend to take the apothecary.... :D

I would take another lineman - they are great value since they have Block. With AV7 you are likely to suffer some casualties, although these are replaced by the next game, but an Apothecary might not work .. an extra linaman (albeit delayed until the next kick-off) will.

I play Skaven with AV7 and with these rules I am taking 12 players rather than 11 and an Apothecary.

Nope - to my shame I wasn't playing much BB at the time. My life was full of other things.

*still can't make up his mind on the Apoth...*
Sure I'm playing dwarfs, but I only have 11 and I REALLY want to avoid getting outnumbered or losing my Runners...

Its a toughy. I'm really torn between 3rr/5ff and 2rr/4ff/Apoth.

In a tournament setting i would say it depends on your lineman costs. If the price of a lineman is 50k or less i would get the lineman, otherwise i would get the apoth.

Thad: doesn't matter what you choose, norse said in other topic dwarves aren't for tournament due its average mo of 4 :evil:

About this topic... well I'd go for apo better than other lineman. Apo can save your BG or blitzer...

Anca - Overall the tournament is most likely to go to the player who wins most. I stand the best chance of doing that with Dwarfs. There may well be several teams who go 100% (I am not expecting to be one of them) and will beat me (in the unlikely event of my being in that category) on Scoring. In that event then I'm down a trophy...but what the hell - I can still say I was unbeaten at the Blood Bowl. And I'm gonna try for a hell of a lot of casualties too. Whatever, this tournament will be won by a VERY lucky, well coached team - probably Lizards, Wood Elves or Skaven.

Anyway, if you'd told me pre-Tulips that an undead team would rack up 3 4-0 wins I'd have called you an idiot. It happened. It is possible to score TDs in two turns with Dwarfs - in fact, I managed just that at Tulips (against Wood Elves).

I'm going to have a laugh, see Warhammer World, meet you rabble and play some Blood Bowl. As long as I don't make a complete arse of myself the results really are secondary (Top ranked Dwarf coach would be nice tho...)

I agree with you. About those "winner" teams too. Just one thing t say... If I choose dwarves you wont be Top ranked Dwarf coach ;-P and if I coach lizards I'll pray to avoid your bad tempered dwarves.
