Reminder: Any coach who has paid for their ticket and submitted their roster by 30/05/2021 will receive a Thrud Ball bonus bag! International and Thrudling (u-16 years old) players will automatically receive the bonus bag, provided their ticket is purchased and roster submitted prior to 01/07/2021.

Team Selection

Teams should be selected from one of the 29 teams available, from the Teams section of the Games Workshop Blood Bowl 2020 official rulebook or from the two NAF-approved teams – Daemons of Khorne and Slann

  • Depending on tiering, a maximum number of gold coins are available to create your team, inducements, skills and Star Players combined (see below for details)

  • Teams must have a minimum of 11 players on their roster (before hiring Star Players)

  • To qualify for the Stunty Cup, your roster must only consist of rostered players and Star Players with the Stunty or Titchy skills, or players and Star Players with a strength of 5 or more (prior to the addition of skills - no strength 5 Saurus on a Skink team)

  • Stunty teams that qualify for the Stunty Cup will receive a bonus 50,000 gold coins

  • If you are planning on purchasing inducements, they must be noted on your roster when submitted, and you may not change these between games; no further inducements may be purchased during the event, even if the teams you are playing have a different Team Value

  • Star Players are only permitted on teams that belong to Tiers 7 and 8

  • Contrary to the above rule, Thrudball Star Players can play for any team (although neither Thrud, nor Gymir will play for Shambling Undead)

  • Any team may purchase Dedicated Fans, Cheerleaders, Assistant Coaches and Apothecaries as per normal allowances (e.g., no Apothecary for Shambling Undead teams)

  1. You may not purchase the same combination of statistic increase and/or skills on more than one player (this includes players with just one skill, so you may not have two players with just Block, but you may have one with just Block, one with Block & Dodge and one with Block & Tackle, etc)

  2. You may only have up to two skills per player

  3. Only one of each stat increase is allowed per team, so sorry, you cannot make six +1 Strength Halflings! Also, if you take a stat increase, you may take no other skills on that player

  4. To take a Secondary skill, you must first take a Primary skill. E.g., a Bloodthirster who wants Block (+40k) must first take a Primary skill (+20k) such as Break Tackle. Stunty Qualifying Teams are exempt from this rule

  5. If you take a stat increase, that player may not take any further skills

  6. Each Star (regular or Thrud Star Player) player counts as two Skills for your total skills selections

  7. Each race has a different number of skills they are allowed to choose up to, dependent on their tier - you do not have to take all allowable skills, just that you can take up to this number

You may take extra skills on your team. To do this you will need to purchase your player's skills:

+20k Primary Skill

+40k Secondary Skill

The stat increases below are available for players with the Stunty and/or Titchy skills who play for teams which qualify for the Stunty Cup. Taking any of these stat increases does not disqualify your stunty team from the Stunty Cup.

+10k +1 AV

+20k +1 MA or +1 PA

+40k +1 AG

+80k +1 ST

Please note: you may not take randomly selected skills.

Skill Progression

There is no Team progression at Thrudball; your team does not gain any additional skills or SPPs during the tournament.
