My local gaming store is getting ready to start a new BB league, an I have a couple of questions.

1. is there a 2006 version of the living rulebook, because I have the 2005 version living rulebook, and wanted to know.

2. are the older 3.5 compendiums rules still valid, such as daemons on chaos teams or Greater Daemons, the dwarf thunderer rules and even the savage orc catchers.

3. if all those are still valid, would the daemons be considered big guys or star players.

4.also which teams are no longer valid teams.

My finally question, since Orcs no longer have females, how would I represent cheerleaders?... my thoughts were using orc regiment musicians as cheerleaders.

Thanks in advance!

1 - The latest version of the LRB (5) has just come out and is available on the Specialist Games Website

2 - Only the LRB is currently official as far as I know, none of the stuff you mentioned currently is. Depends on what house rules your league will allow.

3 - Dunno

4 - Any not in the LRB

Finally - In BB Orcs still can have females, only in 40K do they officially not as WFB has left the question open.

Get LRB 5. If it isn`t in there then it isn`t legal.

The female Orc cheerleaders may still be available in the classic section.

See I've never ever liked "using rules off the internet" even if they are a living rule book, infact the living rules system it's self worries me cause instead of taking years to play test and make corrections they can just slap in changes when ever without such long checking.

I'm thinking your best course of action is asking the League commissioner all those questions cause really it's all up to them what rules are being used...well except the female orcs thing, of course there are female orcs. There being no female Orks is Gorkamorkas one legacy and 40k only as Gres said. :)

BloodBowl isn't 40K ..... you can easily make your own Orc Gurlz from bare-chested Orc Boyz and greenstuff. ;)

....as horrifying as that it it's still not as bad as the Ogre one. :p
It's very very close though.

Actually since the league has started and the commish doesn't have the newest rule book, he's decided to have the league a early 3.5 league for now until everyone can download the LRB 5 and read through it... so that mean't a dwarf thunderer and sneaky gits are abound... but I do have good news... so are savage orcs too!

BTW, that cheerleader model is well disturbing to say the least.

The rules for LRB 5 have been in playtesting for what, at least a year? It's not likely they from one day to another just change it. The experimental rules have been available for a quite a long time, and really have been tested a lot.

Actually, it seems that the specialist games are a lot better with that, than they are for Warhammer and 40k.

Agreed. At least with Bloodbowl.

Some of the initial suggestions for rules changes for the LRB 5 made me want to cry, but over the months they've been tweaked into what I believe, from a play-for-fun-and-damn-the-consequences perspective, is the best version of Bloodbowl so far.

Nothing is ever going to make me rate a properly printed and bound book over a pile of printed pages, I just like a proper book so much more. That's basicly what it all comes down to.

But with the horrendous state of Necromunda:Underhive I'm not really wanting them to print a new BB Rulebook. :p

My Orcs want their Orges back, not some idiotic troll.
