My friend has been coaching Blood Bowl Goblin team for so many years and she is getting into warhammer Invasion slowly but with some reservation.

Originally she was very excited about this card game but when she found out there are no Chaos Dwarves, Bretonnian, Norse, Goblins, Beastmen decks she has stopped getting involved but still wants to know about the results of our W.I game night.

One of the beautiful things about Blood Bowl is you could build any faction and bring them into any game and play.

I would like to surprize her and purchase enough Goblin cards to form a Goblin Deck.Regretfully I do not have all the mini packs and deluxes but is anyone ever tried to build a Goblin team ? I am sure I can throw in couple of Orc Quest cards that is not a problem Or include a Neutral Giant in the deck. I also saw a female Dwarf girl (unique card) with a picture of Goblin beside her so I am not sure if that card can be used as a Goblin ??

At the same time I do not have the budget to purchase 4 or 5 copies of one deluxe to capture duplicates of same Goblin units

If you think this can be done, I just need a guidance.

Cheers,

The goblins are part of the Orc faction, but there are a couple of ways that a deck that has a strong focus on goblins can be made. First goblins work really for rushes. Many of the goblin units are small and cheap, so they can come out fast. a goblin rush deck with a snotling invasion can knock an opponent out before they get going. The issue with rush decks though is that if they slow down at all they have very little to fall back on.

An odd numbered deck that focuses on two goblin units that have huge powers if the top card is odd can also be the focus of a goblin deck. This deck is a bit more reliable from game to game, but it is build around two key units.

Thank you.
That is very interesting since we witness one of our girl friends has Skaven Deck and her style of play is also rush style and she has defeated many of us with this theme. It would be so fun to see a goblin rush style go against Skaven.
Its a bit frustrating for me to slow her down with my Chaos deck

Thanks again for the input.

You can make Beastmen decks, I kinda remember seeing someone recommending a mostly pure Gor deck awhile back. There are also a bunch of Norse cards in the Chaos faction. I'm not sure if you can do a pure Norse deck with them, but, again, they certainly exist.

There are also Bretonnians, though, unfortunately, only three or four, so you really can't do a Bretonian deck, though you can slap them into a Wood Elf deck if you really want to. No Chaos Dwarves though, I'm not sure why they got the short end of the stick.

EDIT: Typo >.
