Guild Ball: Engineer’s Guild ‘Compound’

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

Last Friday the new Season 3 Rulebook for Guild Ball was released (a very nice book with great artwork) and along with my order I decided to include another model for my Engineer’s Guild.  After seeing what the Fisherman can do to me in scoring, I…

Hunter's Guild: Heralds of the Winter's Moon

Available now from your friendly local game store!
Hunter’s Guild: Heralds of the Winter’s Moon 
MRSP: £28  $40 (USD)  €38  $55 (AUD)

Light on their feet and menacing as the cold, this pack of hunters brings the sharp sting of winter to the sport. Their fearsome captain, Skatha, commands the pitch with slick footwork and a passing game as unrelenting as winter’s howling winds. Opponents had best be wary with the ball against her pack. One misstep and their watchful protector Snow will fetch the ball and pass it to their feral striker, Ulfr. This lone huntsman lives for the rush of an ambush, targeting prey who stand between him and the goal post. To ensure their striker makes the shot, Veteran Hearne lies in wait, ready to ensnare his prey and show them the cruelty of winter. His furs now matted with frost, Hearne proves even the most ardent supporters of the Sun Father can be swayed by the Winter Queen.

This boxed set contains:
• 1X Metal 30mm Skatha (Captain) Model
• 1X Metal 30mm Snow (Mascot) Model
• 1X Metal 30mm Ulfr Model
• 1X Metal 40mm Veteran Hearne Model
• Stat Cards for each model

Guild Ball: Engineer’s Guild ‘Pin Vice’

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

Some Guild Ball news from Steamforged Games…

Hey Coach, 

Are you looking to become a convert of the cogs? To swim with a new school? Or do you just want to run with knives? Then mark your calendars—Friday, June 23 it’s open season for new coaches to join the Butchers, Engineers, and Fishermen. Meet their Captains below.


The Butcher’s Guild: The Bloody Master

“You’re just meat to them. Weak, tender, soft meat. And they’re the Butchers.” 
—    Greyscales, Fishermen’s Guild
Tougher than gristle, Ox sees Guild Ball as nothing but brutal blood sport. More merciless maniac than athlete, the master butcher has transformed the pitch into a kitchen nightmare—cleavers, knives, hooks, you name it, his team wields it. Why the cutlery? Because to this deranged butcher, everyone—even his teammates—is a succulent meat bag, crying out for pain. 

The Bloody Master is the team for you if…

  • You’re a new coach who wants to pick up a knife and get to stabbing.
  • You prefer cleavers to clever ball tricks.
  • You want a captain whose focus is taking out players and making every game a ruthless bloodbath.
The Engineer’s Guild: The Instruments of War
The Engineer's Guild: The Instruments of War

“They have the most devastating potential of all teams at their fingertips.”
—    Midas, Alchemist’s Guild
Former dog of war. Ambitious tinkerer. Volatile genius. Ballista’s brilliance is as intimidating as his past. No longer squandering his talents on the waste of war, his newest gadgets and gizmos seek to quash the natural talents of man. Why train to be the best when you can simply build something better?

The Instruments of War are the team for you if…

  • Coordinated Mechanica Mayhem was the name of your former band. 
  • You think the best defense is a precision offense.
  • You want a bully of a captain whose go-to shutdown strategy is an arrow to the face.
The Fishermen’s Guild: The Changing Tides
The Fishermen's Guild: The Changing Tides

“Ain’t no other team that can catch ‘em. Until someone seriously gets their game on, the Fishermen’s Guild will keep on winning.”
–    Flint, Mason’s Guild
As a cunning predator, Shark is the kind of captain crowds love to watch and players hate to face because he’s aggressively fast. And he’s not shy about showing off. Circling the currents of the pitch, his plays aim to shame—he darts in, steals the ball, and sinks a shot in a flash of blue. Fading back into the murky shadows, he patiently waits to strike again.

The Changing Tides are the team for you if…

  • You prefer brains over brawn. 
  • Your dream captain is a silent predator, one of the faster strikers on the pitch.
  • You want to reel in the points with sleek, flashy goals.

It’s a new dawn for the Union thanks to the divine talents of Grace and Benediction. A bottomless well of healing, the Living Saint, Grace, gives self-sustained support to her teammates near and far. Meanwhile, Benediction stands as a devoted guardian, poised to beat back opposing players. Together, the players make their teams as resilient and unwavering as their faith. Whether you find their presence to be a blessing or a curse will depend on your side of the pitch..

The First Light of Solethecius  includes one metal model and stat card for each of the following models (assembly required):
Grace — Player (30mm)
Benediction — Player (40mm)

The Chruch is now playing with the Union, giving coaches access to two beacons of supportive power for more resilent playstyles.
But their defensive potential goes beyond shrugging off damage or conditions or taking hits for the team—they bolster the potential of their whole team, unlocking more opportunitites for you to control of the pitch!
If you want influence independence, more denial strategies,  or raw support power, the First Light of Solethecius will do it. Union coaches, get ready for more exciting strategies and new line-ups.
