Guild Ball: Hunter’s Guild ‘Egret’

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

I have been a little sidetracked lately with another project of mine, but I finally got around to finish up another model for my son’s Hunters Guild.  I have 5 of the 6 models now completed that he gave me to paint, the last one left being the second Captain ‘Skatha’.  Today we have a Striker for his Guild, ‘Egret’.

Guild Ball: Hunter’s Guild ‘Ulfr’

Posted on November 6th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

I have to admit, I am starting to slack a little on the Hunter’s Guild models for my son.  This past weekend I got a little side tracked with a model railroading project that I am working on in my basement (nothing to elaborate, just something for the top of my bar).  Anyway’s last week I was able to finish the fourth model for the Hunter’s Guild that my son provide me.  ‘Ulfr’, a Striker for the Guild.

Guild Ball: SNEAK PEEK Old Father’s Harvest, The Farmer’s Guild

Posted on November 2nd, 2017 under , , . Posted by

A sneak peek image of the next Farmer’s Guild box set popped on Twitter late yetsterday afternoon and the estimated street date is early January 2018.  I am really hopping that this box will be an early release at SteamCom USA at the beginning of December.  Either case, I know what models will be early in the queue for me come 2018.  Another ball-marker, goal and terrain piece is also included with this set.

Guild Ball: Sing When You’re Winning, The Brewer’s Guild

Posted on November 1st, 2017 under , , . Posted by

It’s the start of a new month, so I thought I’d better get a post in.  Last Friday October 20th, Steamforged Games released the newest set of 6 models and this time it was for the Brewer’s Guild.  It seemed to be a farely quiet release for them (probably with getting ready for both SteamCon’s and the global event The Union in Chains), anyways I was able to get an order in with an online retailer.  With a slight shipping delay (I was in no rush) I finally received my package this week.  ‘Sing When You’re Winning’ for the Brewer’s Guild complements the original 6 from the Kick-Off Starter Set bringing the Guild count to 12 models.  The box set consists of: Esters, PintPot, Veteran Spigot, Quaff, Mash and Stoker.  With this Brewer’s box set (not counting limited edition models and kickstarter models) I now have every model for every Guild, not all painted, but we are getting there.  Having every model painted will definitely be a goal for 2018.

Guild Ball: Hunter’s Guild ‘Theron’

Posted on October 31st, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Well my son will finally be thrilled that one of his Captains is now completed for his Hunter’s Guild, ‘Theron’ a Defensive Midfielder for the Guild.

I am half way down now with the 6 models he provided me and slowly working on the fourth model.  As of now my timeline is looking good to have them completed by the end of November.
It turned out to be a pretty good month for October, I was able to finish up my remianing Fisherman models and also started and completed the Blacksmith’s Guild, along with starting my sons Hunters.  We’ll see how November goes, I may slow it down a bit and get ready for SteamCon USA.

Continuing along with my son’s Hunter’s Guild, today we ‘Jaecar’ a Winger for the Guild and his pitfall-marker.

They are coming along quite nicely and I should also have one of his Captains ready by tomorrow.

Guild Ball: Hunter’s Guild ‘Hearne’

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

Well, I officially started on my son’s Hunter’s Guild for Guild Ball.  The plan (like the previous Guilds I have been painting) is to have them completed by the time he arrives for SteamCon USA.  Luckily he did send me the entire Guild, only 6 models, so I should have them completed in time.  Plus the color palette for the Hunter’s, Greens/Browns fit my painting style, so they should also look decent on the table top.  I also asked my son if he wanted the highlights to be ‘subtle’ or to really ‘pop’.  He elected on them to be more ‘subtle’ and blend more with the base color, so that is what I tried to do.

I elected to start off with ‘Hearne’, a Centre Back for the Guild.  Being a 40mm model it would be a little bit easier for me to paint and see how I like the color palette.  I enjoy painting the 40mm models and I feel they come out looking a little nicer.

Guild Ball: Hunter’s Guild Hit The Queue

Posted on October 24th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

My wife landed late last night after visiting my two oldest boys back in Arizona and while driving home from the airport, she tells me that she has a package for me from my oldest.  I guess he did pack up some of his Hunter’s Guild models and sent them my way.

I opened the box this morning and he has 6 models for me to paint along with a pitfall-marker.
The models are as follows:
Skatha
Theron
Egret
Hearne
Jaecar
Ulfr
I did not see a Mascot in the box, so I am assuming he will get that done himself (or he already completed one).  I do know that he does have Seenah on his own painting table.
Now I need to decide what kind of color palette I will be using, more than likely lots of different shades of browns and some greens.  Green is his favorite color and it will be the color I use to link them all as Team (I try to do that with all my Guilds).
Looks like I’ll be busy for a bit.

Guild Ball: Blacksmith’s Guild Completed

Posted on October 23rd, 2017 under , , . Posted by

I mentioned in my first post this morning it was going to be a busy day in news for Guild Ball, and her we are the fourth post of the day.  With my recent post on Blacksmith’s Guild ‘Furnace’, I now have completed the Blacksmith’s Guild   I was able to meet my goal line date by the end of October.   I wanted to have them completed by the end of the month so that it will free up the month of November for other models, and so that I know that the Blacksmith’s are completed and ready to go for SteamCon USA the first weekend in December.

So what is going to his the painting table next?  Possibly the Hunter’s Guild.  My wife flies home from Arizona late tonight and I should know tomorrow morning if she is bringing along my son’s Hunter’s Guild.  If she did, then that Guild will be next with a deadline by the end of November (when my oldest flies in for SteamCon).  I am not sure if he is sendinig the entire Guild, or just the 6 models he wants to play with at SteamCon, guess I’ll find out tomorrow.
If the Hunter’s do not arrive, then we may mix in some Union models and Mortician’s that I still have to finish.  I may lean towards the Mortican’s since I have less to finish to complete that Guild.
Then who knows….not related to Guild Ball, but I always like the models from Malifaux, but never played the game.  Debating on getting in a demo game and possibly picking up some models.  I am still undecided on this one (I do not get to go out play that often), so for me it is more the collecting of the game (and I have every Guild Ball model there is, not included all the Limited Edition models).  I still have plenty of Warmachine/Hordes models also, but currently that game is not doing much for me…we’ll see what happens…my oldest really likes Warmachine/Hordes, so if we convince him to move to Michigan, I’ll be able to get to play that game more often along with more Guild Ball.

Guild Ball: Blacksmith’s Guild ‘Furnace’

Posted on October 23rd, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Model 6 of 6 for the Blacksmith’s Guild and we have the Master ‘Furnace’, a Center Midfielder for the Guild.

I put off painting ‘Furnace’ till the end becasue I was unsure on how his flaming sword would turn out, it is not the greatest, but I think it looks really good on the table top.
I doubt I will be able to give these guys a try this week (my van is still in the shop), but maybe next week Wednesday 11/1 I’ll drive up to Grand Rapids for a game and see how the Guild does on the Pitch.

Guild Ball: Blacksmith’s Guild ‘Cinder’

Posted on October 22nd, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Getting closer to completing the Blacksmit’s Guild for Guild Ball.  Today we have model 5 of 6 with ‘Cinder’, an Apprentice Winger for the Guild.  ‘Cinder’s’ Master is ‘Furnace’ who is up next on the painting table and my final model for the Guild.  Once the Blacksmith’s are completed, it will give me some time to work on my son’s Hunter’s Guild (as long as he still sends them back from Arizona tomorrow with my wife).  If the Hunter’s do not arrive, I still have plenty of Union models to work on along with a few Mortician’s left on the shelf that need to be completed.

Back to ‘Cinder’, I am really liking the Character Trait Hot Shot, it sounds like that technically she can Tackle the ball away from someone who is 6” away, this is something I am going to have to look into before actually playing her.  The more I am reading the cards on the player’s, the more I am liking their playstyle.  Let’s just hope my son does not steal this Guild from me when he visits for SteamCon USA (I am hoping he will just buy his own Blacksmith’s Guild).

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.

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.
