Battle Report: Guild Ball 11/15/2018 3v3 Fisherman's vs Alchemist's

I wanted to play something quick last and was debating between Arena Rex and X-Wing, and then I decided to ask my son if he wanted to play a little 3v3 of Guild Ball to 8 using scoring Guilds we have not yet tried in Season 4.  He was good with that so it was a quick game of Guild Ball.Setting up the Pitch for 3v3.  Usually it is on a 2'x2', but I heard it is better on 2'x3'. SharkAngelV Siren MidasVeninV KatalystThe Guilds are lined up and ready for Kick-Off!I decided to kick off with 'Angel' since she has a Momentous Tackle on 1 in case I wanted to go for a first Turn Goal.  'Venin' picked up the ball and made a Pass to 'Midas' and 'Midas' then Dodged 4".  'Shark' activated next and moved up a bit and gave Quick Foot to 'Angel'.  'Midas' then activated next and went for a run at the Goal, when he got within range, he realized oh oh, no Momentum and kicked the ball away instead.  'V Siren' then jogged towards the ball and played Fair Wind to place the ball near her and

Battle of Chattanooga: Alter of Freedom ACW

Last Monday the club got together and put on a really fun ACW game, using the Alter of Freedom ruleset which happened to be written by the game host, Greg.  These are "Grand Tactical" which emphasize command control issues.  It was my first time playing them and I was very impressed.The game depicted the Battle of Chattanooga in 1864 which has a besieged Union Army under Grant trying to Break out.  The Confederate force is commanded by Braxton Bragg, who had a checkered reputation...The first picture show the the start of the campaign with the Union to the right and the Confederates to the left.  My command, Sherman's Corps, is in the lower right.Alter of Freedom uses a very intuitive command point system where you bid a set number of command points to get a division to move.  Want to make sure the division moves - bid a larger number but that means some divisions will not activate.  The turn clock moves down and if you bid a low number you make not get to move.  It took us

Warmachine Weekend 2018 LCQ Round 4: Kolgrima vs. Sloane

Just like Kevin Chang, the last time I played Anthony Gibbs was at Lock and Load 2018, and just like against Kevin Chang, I felt like I stole a win.  We had played Sloane into Borka2, and the presence of a forest on the table and his odd trip 1 roll gave me scenario pressure and a win.So when Anthony saw the shooting gallery of a table that we drew at Warmachine Weekend, he got excited, won the roll, and gave me the side of the table furthest from a forest.According to observers, I may have screwed the pooch by not ambushing my Bears. It gave Sloane freedom to run all the way to the edge of the table and score a unit zone she might not otherwise have been able to score. My main reasoning was that I was going to try to use the Bears as a physical bunker for Rok, but then I failed to do even that.I had some deployment mistakes. Going first meant that I could load the krielstone with fury and run up safely. So reaching the cover of the forest was not going to be a problem. I didn't need to bother with cloud

Battle Report: Guild Ball 11/11/2018 Butcher's vs Hunter's

After I watched the 2018 Guild Ball World Championships being broadcast from SteamCon UK yesterday, my son and I threw down for another Butcher's vs Hunter's practice game.  Seeing how these will be both of our core Guilds for Season 4, there will be a lot of these match ups on the blog.  I also do plan on playing with some of the other Guilds I own, and it may happen next game. OxPrincessBoilerBoarShankTenderizer TheronSnowJaecarChaskaSeenahV MinxThis was another close one going back and forth and I made some mistakes with Tenderizer (it is the second time I am playing him).  My Butcher's did clock out but  was up 9-4 and I was able to get another Take Out on 'Veteran Minx' and then finish off the game with a Take Out on 'Snow' for a 12-8 win.  I wasted too much time "thinking" in he game.  A well placed Forest by the Hunter's in Turn 1 really got me churning the wheels in my brain trying to figure out a way around it, it just blocked too many charge lanes.  Later

Battle Report: Guild Ball Recap "Season 4 Fort Wayne Tournament"

Yesterday my son and I drove down to Fort Wayne, IN and attended our first Guild Ball Tournament hosted at Power Nine Gaming by a very friendly SFG Pundit Eric B..  I knew going into the event I had no chance of winning the event, nor probably wining a game, when you play a game once every six months, you are basically still new at the game.  It was not until Season 4 launched in mid-October that my son and I started to get in some more games.Usually I am pretty good at taking photos when I attend these events, but for some reason I truly forgot to take that many yesterday, hence only the 3 photos below.We arrived on time yesterday to the event with no issues traveling (thankfully) and when we got inside my son and I quickly setup our Guilds to be ready for Round 1.  We were using our brand new Guild Ball Trays and majority of it setup the night before, so when we arrived all we had to do was to just place our models on the tray.  This tray made it quick and easy to setup, and it was

Warmachine Weekend, Last Chance Qualifier Round 3, Madrak1 vs. Xekaar

Round 3 of the Last Chance Qualifier had me in a good spot. 2-0 and I hadn't had to play against anyone I already play against regularly. But then I drew Kevin Chang.The last time we played was at Lock n' Load. We were sitting pretty in round 4 at 2-1, and I stole a win on Ossrum with Grim Angus while the speedpaint was going on and blaring in the speaker right beside our ears.Kevin wanted payback.Also for the speakers.This time, however, Kevin brought new Skorne. I guess he was a Skorne player previously, so now he was simply returning to his roots. He brought the new stuff  that came out this recent CID, and especially the pairing I'd been dreading to face: the Supreme Guardian recursion monster paired with Skorne Style shootout.He knew he had me in a trap, too. Madrak1 is my anti-recursion list and Kolgrima gets to play against most anything else. And even when Madrak1 can weather some shooting he can't outlast an all out assault from certain shooting lists. And if I play Kolgrima and he decides to pl

Battle Report: Guild Ball 11/8/2018 Butcher's vs Hunter's

Last night my son and I were able to get in one more practice game of Guild Ball before our first Tournament tomorrow, and it was the last game we could also report for the "Free Cities Draft" which is a World Wide Guild Ball campaign that is currently ending this weekend at SteamCon UK.Last night I left 'Brisket' on the bench and substituted her with 'Boar', and my son kept 'Theron' on the bench and wanted to give 'Skatha' a try on the Pitch along with a few other models he has not played with much. OxPrincessBoilerBoarV GutterShank SkathaSnowZarolaUlfrSeenahV Minx'Skatha' jumped out with an early Goal and a 4-0 lead, but the Butcher's were not going to have it and quickly made work with a Taken Out on 'Skatha'.  It was a back and forth game and finally the Butcher's had a 11-7 lead with 2 minutes left on my clock and they were able to get in another Taken Out for the Win 13-7.I am still undecided between 'Boar' and 'Brisket', 'Boar' can do a lot of damage and he proved it last night, but 'Bri
