From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

Beastmen teams for Blood Bowl

Back in the dim reaches of time (1998 to be exact) Games Workshop published a fan-written magazine called the Citadel Journal. I had a few articles published there over the years, one of which expanded on the Chaos teams in Blood Bowl.

With the 2016 release of Blood Bowl, I decided now was a good time to update my work. After looking online I saw that my original work had inspired other to take the teams forward as years passed and Blood Bowl changed. I also didn’t see any team list specific for this version yet, so enjoy!

Tables are… challenging to do on WordPress, so here instead is an image, but you can download this in PDF format below.


citadeljournal29My intent here is the create a team that is fun and challenging to play, and offers chaos coaches something different to do. The new version of the team provides a collection of players who love to blitz. Coaches  will need to decide if they want to build their around a core of Gors or else start with the Centigors and Bestigors and make do with the relatively unimpressive Ungors instead.

As with the original version of this team in the 1990s (printed in Citadel Journal 29) I was primarily inspired by the Beastmen models available in Warhammer. However the original team reflected different times in both Warhammer and Blood Bowl, and so needed some changes. The original team pre-dates Centigors and I wanted to include them, plus the Bestigor needed to be toned down.

I’l be happy to answer any questions about the list or hear stories of your successes and failures!
