Guild Ball: Blacksmith’s Guild ‘Iron’

Posted on October 20th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

2/3’s of the Blacksmith’s Guild is now complete.  To go along with ‘Ferrite’ who was posted yesterday, today we have her Apprentice ‘Iron’.  He does not look like someone who can score, but his Heroic Play Tryhard is really good.  If ‘Iron’ is within [2”] of the enemy goal-post and in possesion of the ball-marker, he can take a Shot during his activation without soending MP, plus the Shot gaines [-1] TN, so along with the general rule of being within [4”] and gaining [-1] TN, ‘Iron’ would only need a 2 on the dice to score.

Guild Ball: Blacksmith’s Guild ‘Ferrite’

Posted on October 19th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Half way through getting the Blacksmith’s Guild completed, my timeline is looking pretty good so far.  Today is Master and a Striker for the Guild in ‘Ferrite’.

If chosen as the Captain for the Team, she has a very good Legendary Play that I really like in Tong in Cheek [6” Pulse], This model gains [+2”/+2”] MOV plus other friendly Guild models within the pulse gain [+2”/+2”] MOV and Hobble.  This would be really nice if it was for the entire game instead of once per game, but oh well, it still can be very useful.

Guild Ball: Blacksmith’s Guild ‘Anvil’

Posted on October 18th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

The other day I showcased the Apprentice ‘Sledge’, and today we have his Master ‘Anvil’.  I really enjoyed painting this model and believe he came out quite nice.  The model ‘Anvil’ reminded me from back in the day when I used to paint Dwarves for Warhammer Fantasy Battles (probably because of his long beard) and they were my favorite army to paint.

I am really liking the stats I am seeing on the Blacksmith’s cards, it seems like they are Guild that can score, and put the beat down on enemy models.  I think they are going to be a fun Guild to try out.
So far I am on track to getting the Blacksmith’s completed by month’s end, we shall see how much I am able to get done this weekend.

Guild Ball: The Union in Chains – Week Two – Decimate

Posted on October 16th, 2017 under , . Posted by

We are now into week two for The Union in Chains a Guild Ball Community Event and Steamforged Games just released the two sculpts for ‘Decimate’.  The event is deciding if ‘Decimate’ should be playing for the Brewer’s or Mason’s Guild.

To see the results after week one for The Union in Chains, please click HERE.
Back to the ‘Decimate’ sculpts.  As much as I like my Khador army for Warmachine, the sculpt for the Mason’s Guild is just not doing it for me.  I am leaning for ‘Decimate’ to end up on the Brewer’s Guild (my opion is just how I like the sculpts, not any storyline behind her character).
As of now model wise, I am hoping for:
Hemlocke: Mortician’s
Decimate: Brewer’s
Brewer’s Guild: Decimate

Mason’s Guild: Decimate

Guild Ball: Blacksmith’s Guild ‘Sledge’

Posted on October 15th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Well after a little delay and sidetracked by a few different models, I finally started on the Blacksmith’s Guild and elected to start with ‘Sledge’, an Attacking Midfielder and an Apprentice for the Guild.  ‘Sledge’ did not look to difficult to paint and wanted to test on my color palette on this model.  I like to try and paint close to studio colors and to me the Blacksmith’s look to be painted with shades of Grey.

Just like with my Farmer’s Guild  I do not plan to rush the painting on this Guild and plan to spend a little bit more time with them.  Plus with ‘real life’ getting in the way today and some of next weekend, my goal is to complete them by the end of the month, that will then give me the whole month of November to finish what ever I need to in time for SteamCon USA.
The Blacksmith’s Guild are a little different than the other Guilds in Guild Ball.  All of the other Guilds have Captains and Mascots, with the Blacksmith’s, they have Masters and Apprentices.  ‘Sledge’ is an Apprentice to his Master ‘Anvil’.  Being an Apprentice to a Master usually grants some abilities in gameplay, and in the case of ‘Sledge’, he has a Character Trait called Tutelage [Anvil] when he starts his activation within [6”] of ‘Anvil’, he may use a Character Play once during its activation without spending Influence.
‘Sledge’ also has some really good stats and can be a scoring threat, and a high threat to get Taken Out’s.  With a TAC 5 plus the Character Play  Piledriver that grants him [+3] net hits and a Momentous 7 damage on his Playbook….watch out.

Guild Ball: Fisherman’s Guild ‘Kraken’

Posted on October 14th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Finally, the last fish in the pond.  My Fisherman’s Guild is now complete, all 12 models.  The last model to be completed is ‘Kraken’, a Centre Back for the Guild.  ‘Kraken’ is more of the beatstick for the team with a 2” Melee Zone, TAC 5 and a Momentous KD on 1.  ‘Kraken’ plays along side ‘Veteran Siren’ nicely which was in yesterdays post.

Guild Ball: Fisherman’s Guild ‘Veteran Siren’

Posted on October 13th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Down to the final 2 Fisherman models and then the Guild will be complete.  

Today we have ‘Veteran Siren’ an Attacking Midfieder for the Guild.  
Along with ‘Siren’, ‘Veteran Siren’ had some changes done to her in the last errata.  ‘Veteran Sirens’ Playbook was changed.  I honestly do not recall what exactly changed in her Playbook.

Guild Ball: Fisherman’s Guild ‘Tentacles’

Posted on October 11th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Yesterday it was the second Captain for the Fisherman’s Guild, today it is the second Mascot for the Guild with ‘Tentacles’.  With that I have a full 10 man Team painted for Regional Cup play with only ‘Kraken’ and ‘Veteran Siren’ left to paint to comnplete the full Guild.

I actually like the way ‘Tentacles’ came out, and the picture itself is not to bad either.  Now that I have been getting the Fisherman painted lately, it is gicing me the itch to get them on the Pitch again.  I would drive up to Grand Rapids for a game tonight (so it would also count for The Union in Chains), but car troubles and picking up my pet from the Vet looks like it will keep me from playing tonight.

Box Breaking 223: Farmer’s Guild for Guild Ball

In this Box Breaking Matt takes a look at the Farmer’s Guild for Guild ball from Steamforged Games.  This starter features the new plastics plastic for Guild Ball. Guild ball is a lot like the gladiatorial arena meets soccer!

Guild Ball: Fisherman’s Guild ‘Corsair’

Posted on October 10th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Well with missing the Michigan GT last weekend for Warmachine, it allowed a little bit of free time to get some painting done.  I still have to start on the Blacksmith’s Guild, but I have been hesitant to start on them becasue I want to be able to spend a little extra time painting that Guild.  The Blacksnith’s will have to hit the painting table by November to make sure they are ready to go for SteamCon USA.

So I took a look at my shelf of unfinished Guild Ball blisters and decided to grab some Fisherman.  I still have 4 models left to paint for the Fisherman to finish them at 12 models.  So I decided to grab ‘Corsair’ and get him built and prepped for painting.
‘Corsair’ is the second Captain for the Fisherman’s Guild alongside ‘Shark’, and I hear he can be a little difficult to play with.  Although 2 weeks ago at the WTC in Belgium, ‘Corsair’ was being played a lot and did fairly decent.  I may have to go and take a look at some of those videos to see how he should be played.
He came really nice (at least in my eyes), but the picture does him no justice.

Guild Ball: The Union in Chains – Week One – Hemlocke

Posted on October 9th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Today begins the first day of ‘The Union in Chains’ a 2017 Guild Ball Community Event.  Fron today until SteamCon UK the ganmes we play for Guild Ball will change the outcome of the Guild Ball world.  The majority of the Guilds are playing for a Unnion player to become a Veteran Player for their Guilds.

Steamforged Games has a web page dedicated to the ongoing results and updates, and you can find that HERE.
As I mentioned above, majority of the Guilds are playing for a Union player, the breakdown is as follows:
  • The Fisherman’s Guild & Butcher’s Guild will be competing for Gutter.
  • The Brewer’s Guild & Mason’s Guild will be competing for Decimate.
  • The Mortician’s Guild & Hunter’s Guild will be competing for Hemlocke.
  • The Alchemist’s Guild & Engineer’s Guild will be competing for Harry the Hat.
I do not get to play Guild Ball that much, but I will make an effort to try and get a few games in.  It does not matter if you win or lose, it is just getting in some games of Guild Ball and having some fun.  Life always finds a way to interupt my gaming, so we shall what happens.  Honestly, I have not fully decided on which Guild I will be playing for.  I have narrowed it down to 3: Fisherman, Butcher’s and Engineer’s, and I am leaning towards the Fisherman’s Guild.  Getting in some more time with the Butcher’s Guild would be nice too so I am really undecided (and both of those Guilds are playing for Gutter).

You can read the beginning of the story line HERE about how the Solthecian Church’s hold over the Union begins to become forceful.  Not all members of the Union will be swayed by the Inquisitor’s promises, or knife, and are seeking refuge among the established Guilds.
Now we move onto the beginning of Week One and they begin with Hemlocke, her story can be found HERE
They have a released a sculpt based on her playing for the Hunter’s Guild, or the Mortician’s Guild.  Only one sculpt will be produced and the other mold will be destroyed.  I actually like the sculpt of her playing for the Mortician’s Guild.

Hunter’s Guild: Hemlocke

Ox & Shank are competitive, interview with Greg Day

Posted on September 29th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

  Last week, the World Team Championship for Guild Ball took place in Belgium. If you’ve never followed the WTC before, it is basically the olympics of Guild Ball, close to 100 different coaches from around the world saved, studied and trained for this tournament and fought to win glory for their respective countries. In the end, Germany took home the gold, but in my eyes, there was another champion who won glory, Greg Day. Greg Day was team captain for England 2, and while he didn’t win the gold medal for his country he single-handedly destroyed all the perceptions about Butchers by finishing 4-1 with a lineup that featured Ox has his only captain and also starred Shank in

The post Ox & Shank are competitive, interview with Greg Day appeared first on Midwest Wargaming.

Guild Ball: Farmer’s Guild Completed

Posted on September 27th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Well, the first 6 of the released models for the Farmer’s Guild are now completed.  As I mentioned in some of the model posts, I really enjoyed painting these guys, and took just a little bit of extra time with them.  I am no high quality painter, but I do feel like my quality is good for the table top.  It was nice to be able to paint these at the same time our real world entered the Fall season, it was just fitting.

What’s next? Honestly I am undecided at the moment.  I still have plenty of Guild Ball models left to paint to flush out my remaining Guilds, The Union are probably the farthest behind with only ‘Harry the Hat’ being completed.  But the Blacksmith’s are looking interesting and would like to get those guys completed in time for SteamCon USA.
I still have a few model I need to complete for Warmachine/Hordes before I can slide back over to Guild Ball.

Guild Ball: Farmer’s Guild ‘Peck’

Posted on September 27th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

The first 6 of the Farmer’s Guild are now completed.  The Mascot ‘Peck’ was the last to get done.  This model is one that I am not actually thrilled on how it he came out.  I just was not ‘into it’ to paint chickens and a rooster.  More than likely when the donkey comes out in the second 6 of models, the donkey will be seeing the Pitch more often.

Guild Ball: Farmer’s Guild ‘Jackstraw’

Posted on September 26th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

I am down to the final 2 models for my Farmer’s Guild.  Today we have ‘Jackstraw’, a Winger  for the Guild.

‘Jackstraw’s’ MOV is not the greatest, actually pretty bad at 2”/4”, but he uses the harvest-markers to get around the Pitch.  He has a Character Play If I Only Had a Brain which allows him to move into base contact with harvest-marker that is 4” away, plus he has 2 Character Traits that also allow him to jump around.  At Your Post allows him once per turn to move into base contact with a harvest-marker or friendly goal-post that is within 4” and he has The Last Straw that at the end of his activation he may move into base contact with a harvest-marker that is within 4”.  So ‘Jackstraw’needs some setup from the other Planters to be able to move around.
Again, as with all of the other Farmer’s so far, ‘Jackstraw’ was a joy to paint.
