Inspired by the Build a New Team thread last month. I decided to do some number crunching and try to come up with a similar method for making Star Players. Still a work in progress. Though I think just comparing it to the existing star players isn't going to get it completely balanced. I should be useful for adding your own players to Blood Bowl campaigns. Making the Star Player Every players base cost is 60k (60,000) Stats: Work out their stats and add the values from the table below. If the value isn't on the table you can't use it. Note: If you want to give a player 'ball and chain' their strength must be 7. However, calculate their cost as if they have ST5. Skills: Next choose their skills and add their cost to the players value. All players must have Loner. Take note of how much they have spent on skills alone. Loner: 0k Accurate: 30k Ball & Chain*: 0k Block: 30k Bombardier*: 20k Bonehead: -10k Break Tackle: 30k Catch: 20k Chainsaw*: 60k Claws: 10k Dauntless: 10k Dirty Player: 10k Disturbing Presence: 40k Diving Catch: 30k Dodge: 40k Dump-off: 30k Extra Arms: 20k Fend: 20k Foul Appearance: 20k Frenzy: 30k Grab: 10k Guard: 30k Hail Mary Pass: 10k Horns: 10k Hypnotic Gaze: 30k Juggernaut: 30k Jump Up: 10k Kick-Off Return: 20k Leap: 20k Mighty Blow: 40k Multiple Block: 30k Nerves of Steel: 40k No Hands: -10k Pass: 20k Pass Block: 10k Prehensile Tail: 20k Regeneration: 40k Right Stuff: 20k Safe Throw: 10k Secret Weapon: -20k Shadowing: 20k Side Step: 30k Sneaky Git: 20k Sprint: 30k Stab: 10k Stakes: 10k Stand Firm: 20k Strip Ball: 10k Strong Arm: 10k Stunty: 10k Sure Feet: 10k Sure Hands: 10k Tackle: 10k Tentacles: 20k Thick Skull: 10k Throw Teammate: 10k Two Heads: 20k Very Long Legs: 10k Wrestle: 10k *Must take secret weapon along with these skills. Ball and Chain must also be taken with No Hands The following Skills are not normally found on star players. If you must have them I suggest the following values. (30k) Big Hand, Diving Tackle, Fan Favourite, Leader, Nurgles Rot, Pile On, Pro (10k) Titchy (-10k) Always Hungry, Animosity, Blood Lust, Decay, Really Stupid, Take Root, Wild Animal Final Modifications: If the star player falls into any the following categories. You must add a little more to their value. Both ST and AG are greater than 3: add 10k Has both Block and Dodge: add 10k Total of ST and AG is greater than 6: add 10k Has more than 60k worth of Skills: add 20k Has Block & ST is greater than 4: add 10k Final Notes I've tried this method on all the existing star players. On average they cost 16k more than their listed price. I ideally wanted no player to cost less than 10k cheaper than the listed price. However, the following players did: Icepelt Hammerblow, Mighty Zug, Quetzal Leap, Ramtut III, Rashnak Backstabber. The worst offender was Ramtut who cost 50k cheaper than his listed price. The largest difference in prices were Wilhelm Chaney and Zzharg Madeye who both cost 70k more than listed.
