Hi All,

This year I'm taking Dark elves. I'm thinking of this build

3 Blitzers, (3x dodge)
2 witches (1 x wrestle, 1 x block)
1 Runner (leader)
5 linemen

2 RRs

1 x Apo.


What do you think??

You have a double available which should probably be Guard on a Blitzer (dropping a Dodge). Otherwise that is what I would take.

So, you wouldn't go for the 4th blitzer and lose the apo?

No. Apo is more valuable IMO.

I experimented with 4 Blitzers / 1 Witch Elf recently. Not reached a final opinion on it yet though.

Max blitzes is a must for me with 2 rr or less. I find the witches can't be abuses if I'm saving rr for essentials and therefore two seam overkill personally. Your plan looks fine, especially if the leader is early

1 Witch Elf (Wrestle)
1 Runner (Leader)
5 Linemen

Coach instead of FF, but otherwise yes.

That's my planned roster.

Why coach instead of FF (or Cheerleader)?

I ran the numbers way back in the day and found that a Coach/Cheerleader gives you significantly more chance of a Re-Roll than the Fan Factor. By significant I mean only that it seemed enough to discount the potential FAME benefit for things like Pitch Invasion and Throw A Rock. I think so anyway, it being so long ago I might be wrong. Coach over Cheerleader is just a silly aesthetic thing, no difference really. (it seems more 'tactical'). :wink: Unless you can have two : one of each is better than two of just one type.

Cheers, I seem to go through phases of reroll/non-reroll rolls on the KO table. Recently no rerolls (Crumb was all weather, Blitz, Rock and PI :roll: ).
