Guard is for suckers.  Where's your tackle, dirty player, wrestle?  with easy access to blodgers, you'll need some way to actually get people down without rerolls.

I've played 2 full Spikes in a row without ANY re rolls. I'm not worried about it.

Human Roster for you to analyze Rimmer :)

1 Thrower Leader
2 Catchers
4 Blitzers 2 with Guard and 2 with Tackle
4 Lineman 2 Block and 2 Wrestle
3 Rerolls

So far I have played 1 half vs Tyler (Chaos) and was winning 2-0, one half vs Lee (Zons) his Offense and no score entire half and a full game last night vs Steve L. (Norse) close game but a 2-1 Win to my Humans, so this roster is working well up to now.


I would try to get an extra man.  You have 3 rerolls and all your players have safe blocking skills.  Perhaps cut a reroll for that extra man.  I think your skill choices are great.  I am just a big fan of 12 man rosters in a tourney.  You have been playing well, so perhaps what you have is the best already.

I also love the ogre, but lets not start the big guy debate again!

Thanks for the input Rimmer, I also played 3 halves against Gimli the other night, 1st half against his Dark Elves, he won that 2-0, my first loss. Then Gimli decided to try a Human roster similar to mine, I won that half 2-1, then he tried another variation of Humans and I won that one 2-1 as well. Gimli had an idea I liked alot change one of the Blitzers with Tackle to Frenzy, this positional was causing me alot of headaches as I was always worried about the Frenzy player.
To be honest I will probably stick with the 3 rerolls just because I always seem to need them.
