No change! I fear change!
Triplets! I love triplets!
GC's lovely 1-2-quad based tier system. It's clearly the best!

Edit: Now I need a naming convention, i'm thinking autonames plus middle name quoted nicknames based on Tzeetnchian concepts.

My high elf team started with the Patented Chainsawhands No Catcher Build, and it worked out pretty well. I would say however that it's a long term build - I'm now 16 matches into this team's life and that's more than five divisions of death seasons.
I really struggled with having a max MV of 7 for the first few games, and the catchers are very very fragile until they have two skills on them. I still only have three catchers, and the third doesn't have any defensive skills as yet.
Unless you are willing to commit to the team for a couple of years, you might prefer to go for something a bit more aggressive - your 2 catcher roster seems to have more bang out of the box.My new Blood Bowl blog

It's maybe a bit of a longer term roster, but rerolls are the only thing that gets more expensive so it's overall quicker to get them first, and it means you've got AV8 on everyone for the first couple of matches when you don't have an apothecary. Also while high elf catchers aren't as awesome as the pro elf ones they're still fairly easy to skill up, so assuming you're going to play the team for a while it can be quite good to get the SPP on other players for a bit until the catchers show up and steal all the TDs.
Admittedly starting with 8 linemen does mean there's a chance you'll end up with too many players (16 once you've bought 4 catchers + the other thrower), but only if nobody dies, and lack of casualties is rarely an issue with elf teams...
They're both pretty solid starting rosters though, you should be fine with either.

I'm all about banging boxes, I'll need to think about it.

By this evening, the outstanding-game-not-played-yetters better have:
1) played their game and updated the spreadsheet;
2) organised their game for soon and posted here to ask for an extension;
3) agreed with their opponent to have an admin draw;
4) be scheduled against someone who has dropped out, in which case you should also post here about it.
If you haven't done one of those things, I am highly likely to check the thread for your group, work out who if anyone made the best good-faith efforts to arrange a match, and set the results to my liking using the admin tool, which cannot be unset even by other admins who have more patience than I do.
Get your games in, damn your eyes. Also, harrumph.

Has anyone validated my skaven on skaven match in div E? I really want to see if my bastard stormvermin has rolled a double. Currently he has st 4, block, tackle, guard, mighty blow. I want claw. Any suggestions if he doesnt get a double?

Piling on, obviously.
And I will admin your match around 8 this evening, if the others don't get there first.

Stand firm or frenzy would be my choices.
