We will be using the excellent roster building rules created by Pipey for UK Team Challenge. The text and details below are stolen from the UKTC site http://www.bbuktc.com/rules/
Each of the 29 races is allocated 1,150,000 gold coins to spend on Roster Building only. Roster building comprises the purchasing of players, sideline staff, rerolls, permitted inducements and dedicated fans. Use the rules for «Exhibition Play» for roster building, with the changes or specifications as noted below.
Maximum permitted inducements are as follows:
  • Bloodweiser Kegs – 2
  • Bribes – 3
  • Wandering Apos – 2
  • Mortuary Assistant – 1
  • Plague Doctor – 1
  • Riotous Rookies – 1
  • Biased Referee – 1
  • Halfling Master Chef – 1
If Riotous Rookies are hired, then roll separately before each match and ensure you have identifiable painted miniatures for the extra journeymen.
No other inducements including Star Players are permitted.
Teams have a separate amount of gold coins to buy Upgrades. The amount available for each race depends on a system of Tiers as shown below:
  1.  100.000 cash: Dark Elf, Lizardmen, Shambling Undead, Wood Elf.
  2.  130.000 cash: Amazon, Chaos Dwarf, Dwarf, Norse, Skaven.
  3.  150.000 cash: Black Orc, Human, Imperial Nobility, Old World Alliance, Orc, Necromantic Horror.

  5.  190.000 cash: Chaos Renegades, Daemons of Khorne, Nurgle, Slann, Underworld Denizens.
  6.  220.000 cash: Halfling, Goblin, Ogre, Snotling, Vampire.
Available upgrades also depend on Tier, as follows:
  • Tier 1-5 can only buy primary and secondary skills. Tier 6 can buy stat increases.
  • Tier 1-3 can buy maximum 1 secondary skill.
  • Tier 4-5 can buy maximum 2 secondary skills.
  • Tier 6 can buy any number of secondary skills and a maximum of 2 stat increases.
Only teams in tier 6 can stack skills. Only one player per team may be given a maximum of two upgrades.
Each upgrade is priced as below:
  • Primary skill 20.000
  • Secondary skill 30.000
  • Armour Value improvement 10.000
  • Movement Ability improvement 20.000
  • Passing Ability improvement 20.000
  • Agility improvement 40.000
  • Strength improvement 80.000
All skill improvements are chosen and not random.
Teams who have access to statistic increases are limited to a maximum of two increases per team.
Any unspent cash from either Roster Building or Upgrades is lost. Teams cannot transfer unused cash from one to the other.
