Guild Ball


Weekly Chronicle 2019 #15

With how busy my "real work" was last week, it was actually a pretty decent week for me on the hobby front.I did not play any games during the week (just wanted to relax after longer days at work), but I did manage to paint all 5 models for my Central City Villains and then I was able to play 3 games over the weekend.This past Saturday were games of Guild Ball and Aristeia! and then yesterday my son and I got in a game of Batman with a full 350 points (report coming later today).So I would say the week was really good.Unfortunately some bad news is that I am STILL waiting for my Cook's minor Guild to arrive for Guild Ball, this is ridiculous how long they are sitting at Customs, I should have picked them up at AdeptiCon and then cancelled my web pre-order, but I did not want to do that to Discount Games.  I was hoping to have 'Cinnamon' to use for Spring Fling in a few weeks, but that those not look like it is going to happen. It looks like this week/weekend I may be painting up some more Batman Min

Battle Report: Guild Ball 4/13/2019 Butcher's vs Blacksmith's

It has been just about two weeks since I last played a game of Guild Ball and that was at the Saturday AdeptiCon Championships.  Last weekend we were busy learning Aristeia! and re-learning Batman Miniature Game, but this weekend it was time to throw down some Guild Ball Game.I have Spring Fling fast approaching at the the end of the month and need to get a few games in before going down.  Next weekend will be tough with my son being out of town, but I may be able to get in one more in a few days before heading to Spring Fling.For yesterday's game I wanted to change thing up a bit from the last few games I was running with 'Veteran Boar' as my Captain, and go back to Ox especially versus a kicking team.  I am leaning towads running this list while receiving especially versus scoring teams.The lineups for the Game were: OxPrincessBoilerShankV GutterTenderiser FurnaceFarrisAnvilAlloySledgeV CinderThis game was different from how I usually play, and personally enjoyed myself while playin

Weekly Chronicle 2019 #14

It has been a busy work day today and I am now just getting around to my Weekly Chronicle.  It is hard to believe that Q1 is already over for 2019 and my Painting Queue for the year is not as good as I had hoped for, but I am alright with that, I am getting models completed that I really need/want done.Games played this week was about average for me with 3.  We started a game of Aristeia! last Monday night and then played a full game this past Saturday, and yesterday got in a game of Batman Miniature Game (BMG).Modeling wise was pretty good too.  No actual player models were completed, but I did get more terrain completed for BMG so I am happy with that.  I still have one more building left to complete for BMG and all of that terrain will be completed.I do have new models arriving any day.  My Cook's Guild for Guild Ball SHOULD be arriving any day, and I have some new models for BMG coming in, more than likely I will work on some of the BMG models while I am waiting for the Cooks.Not

Well first off, Happy Birthday to me! yep today is my 45th Birthday and I spent the entire day playing in the AdeptiCon Guild Ball Championships.The event started at 10:00 AM and after 4 games my son and I were ready to call it a day.  With 38 players registered, it was going to be a 6 Round event.I started off my Game 1 vs an acquaintance Ray from Michigan, and his Butcher's managed to beat my Butcher's 12-8 and it was a very fun game.  I enjoy starting off tournaments against people I know.Game 2 was another mirror matchup vs Max from Wisconsin.  This game Max totally controlled me and he easily won 12-0.  I started off 0-2 and my son was sitting 1-1.Game 3 I got to play Justin from Indiana playing Fisherman (who actually I have met once at our South Bend store) and I actually pulled out a 12-4 win (even with a Goal by the Butcher's.Game 4 was against another Fisherman Guild played by Doug  (who my son had beaten earlier), Doug had managed to get the win on me 12-4 but 'Shank' had m

Daily Chronicle: AdeptiCon 2019 Day 3 3/29/2019

Friday was Day 3 for AdeptiCon and it did not go as scheduled for myself.  My son went downstairs early for his Batman Miniatures Game tournament and I was heading down an later and I was entered in the X-Wing System Open Qualifier.  At the last minute I decided to bail out on the event and continue to check out the vendor hall.I wanted to get in a demo game of Arestia! from Corvus Belli, so one of the founders of Corvus Belli, Carlos game taught me how to play the game.  This was the game I was eyeing before coming to AdeptiCon as a quick play game to have done within an hour.  I enjoyed the game a lot, so stay tuned next week for some posts about it.When I was done with the vendor hall for the morning, I decided to head upstairs for lunch and a quick break before heading back down with my Guild Ball stuff.  If someone was going to ask to play, I might as well get a game in.While watching my friend Josh play a friendly with his Fisherman's Guild, Alex Botts (World's #1 Player) asked

Daily Chronicle: AdeptiCon 2019 Day 2 3/28/2019

Day 2 for AdeptiCon has come and gone.  Today was going to be our shopping day with a little bit of gaming.The vendor hall opened up at 10:00 AM and we were downstairs right when it opened.  We walked up and down each aisle just handing my wallet to every vendor we see, not really but we did purchase a lot.  Mainly I was able to purchase the items I needed with once exception.  It seems like each year there is always a new game I want to get into, well just before AdeptiCon I was eyeing a new game and I did make the purchase, I am saving that post for when I arrive back home.Some of the vendors we did purchase from were : Broken Egg Games (Tharn CID and Destiny tokens), Muse On Minis (Miners, Cooks. New Captain tokens), Army Painter (washers), and some terrain for Batman Miniatures Game (dumpsters and bus stop).Once shopping was completed it was time to get ready for the Guild Ball Early Bird Open.  With then event starting at 3:00 PM, we had a feeling we would only be playing 2 games
