SPIKE 2019 Discussion - Team Building
« on: May 09, 2019, 12:59:17 PM »
Hey All

The SPIKE is occurring in approximately 3 weeks.  Just thought I would put up a thread to talk about team selection, building, brain storming, etc.

I'll Start:

I am taking Humans with the following roster:

1 Ogre
4 Blitzers
2 Catchers
2 Throwers
2 linemen
1 Karla Von Kill
2 rerolls
1 AC & 1 CL

I went with Karla as I have a model for her (not the official one).  My toughest decision was around the Catchers, Throwers, and Linemen.  I had the cash to use pretty much any mix and I have 6 slots to fill.  I may still change it up but I ended up going for 2 of each.  I could get an extra reroll by replacing a thrower and catcher with LM but I wanted more than 1 catcher.  Not sure what would be the best?

For skills I think I will take

Block ogre (4 pts)
3 blitzers with (Gaurd, Frenzy, tackle) for 5 pts
2 linemen with wrestle (3 pts)
1 thrower with accurate.

So the risky thing I am doing is playing with only 2 rerolls and no leader reroll.  Could be a big mistake!  I think it is mitigated by have 7 players than can block safely.  That  block ogre cost me a lot of points but I recall others have good success with a block big guy.

Thoughts?  Am I crazy?  What are you guys building?

I think I'm going to rework the skills, but I love the idea of 3 DP skeletons. I have a reputation to maintain after all!
If I came here to win, I probably wouldn't come here.

That is a lot of extra bodies!!!  You could get the fouling star player guy undead get.  You could also drop a few dudes and get a bribe but it may be better with just lots of dudes.

For the skills, you can save some points by replacing the second block skill with wrestle.  Gives you 2 more points (could get you a second DP or perhaps a guard on a mummy or wight).  I would take tackle over strong arm on the wight.  I'm not a fan of sprint either, I would prefer sure feet or sidestep.  Lastly, I like one sure hands ghoul to combat those strip ball wardancers....
