The first model of the second wave of Free Cities Draft Rookies was revealed today, and up first is 'Kami' for the Alchemist's Guild.
While getting ready to play the Cook's Guild for the first time this past Sunday, it got me motivated to start working on my final two models for the Guild, the Limited Edition 'Shank' and 'Tenderiser' models. These models came in the Organized Play box I ordered many months ago which had arrived after my Cook's Guild Tournament that had hosted in March.I got my models assembled on Sunday prior to my game and applied a few coats. Well 'Shank' is now completed and ready for the Pitch. ShankShankPainting Points: 1
Week #33 for the year was a little slow on the painting front (2 models) and average for gaming (2 games).Real work has been busy this month so painting has slowed just a bit, but I still managed to get 2 models completed for Batman Miniature Game, 'The Merciless', and 'The Red Death'. I think once I get back from NOVA Open in two weeks, I will take a look at what we have fr BMG and work on my Painting Queue for them and prioritize what I want to paint. I still have a mix of Guild Ball models I would like to get completed so those will be done in between to break up the repetition of painting BMG.For gaming this past week, we got in another practice game of X-Wing to get ready for NOVA Open (and I am STILL undecided on my list that I am playing). The last 2 lists I tried both netted me a victory. Now it is a matter do I want to play Rebels or Scum.Yesterday afternoon we also finally gotten in a practice game of Guild Ball, it has been awhile since we last played (early July) and we wer

The second wave of the Free Cities Draft Rookies are available for pre-order of Steamforged Games webstore. Unlike with the first wave (available right away), today's announcement is for a pre-order with a shipping date of 8/30.The four Rookies available are: Champ, Flea, Kami and Nomad.
NOVA Open 2019 is only 2 weeks away and the only practice we have gotten in recently was for X-Wing, and I am still undecided on my list. Back when I first announced NOVA Open 2019 in January, our thought was to play Bolt Action and Middle-earth SBG. We have not played a game of MeSBG since last year and Bolt Action never made their schedule of events.Last year we went and played Warmachine/Hordes all weekend, seeing how we have not played that game much (at all this year), we had signed up for this years NOVA to play Guild Ball and X-Wing. At least with Guild Ball we started the year off really strong and attended events for the first four months of the year, and now with the recent errata release on Monday, the excitement is coming back. X-Wing 2.0 came out late last year and we have been occasionally playing that game to keep the rules fresh (nearing on 20 games for the year) so we thought that would be a fun event to play.So our schedule for NOVA Open weekend is:Thursday Evening: S
The new errata for Guild Ball v4.2 just was released on the Steamforged Blog, you can read about all the changes HERE.It is going to be a busy evening updating all of my cards.
So Week #32 was another average week for me regarding painting and gaming. 5 models were completed last week (2 for Guild Ball and 3 for Batman Miniature Game) and I was able to get in 2 more practice games of X-Wing for the upcoming NOVA Open.I played a X-Wing list that was really happy with last night, but I think I have 1 more list that I would like to try out before I make any decisions. If I do not get a chance tonight (more than likely not with next section of news) then hopefully this Thursday night.That now leaves with the big news coming from Steamforged Games later today regarding the new errata for Guild Ball coming out. More than likely I will be spending my evening getting all the cards ready for printing, and from the SFG blog post, it sounds like there will be a lot of changes.Once those changes get released, my son and I will need to get a few practice games of GB also before we leave for NOVA, it has been awhile since we last played and need to get refreshed again.I am not s
Today is the day I have been waiting for, another Striker for my Butcher's Guild with 'Layne'. As much as I love doing Taken Outs, I also do like to score Goals, and to change it up a bit, I think for fun I will try a scoring team, it may not be as competitive, but to have two scoring players with 'Brisket' and 'Layne', it may be a fun game, still may need to play 'Cinnamon' if I elect to play 'Veteran Boar' as my Captain.Now that completes the models needed for playing in this year's NOVA Open at the end of the month. With only playing X-Wing (pre-painted miniatures) and Guild Ball, we are now all set. All that is left is to get in some practice games of Guild Ball once the new errata drops on August 12th (I know it will be a busy night for me getting all the new cards ready for printing).

Wow, it has been nearly three months since I last painted a Guild Ball model (Cook's Guild), I have been busy painting BMG models. Well, I now have one less thing to worry about completing for the NOVA Open at the end of the month. 'Edge' is now completed for my son's Hunter's Guild. EdgeEdgePainting Points: 1
It was announced today by Steamforged Games that a new errata is coming soon, how soon? next Monday August 12th, the errata will be released."Hello Guild Ball fans! This is a public service announcement from the Development Team. The next Guild Ball errata will be released in exactly 1 week’s time, on the 12th of August 2019. This will be a larger errata than we’ve done in the past, and as such we’d like to take this opportunity to say that it’s most definitely worth preparing your hype trousers for next week. Take the day off work, get someone to babysit the kids, let someone else handle that nuclear reactor for a bit, really just get yourselves ready. It’s going to be an exciting day. We’ll see you all in a week’s time."
I am shocked! Yesterday afternoon I received a package from Steamforged Games and my Free Cities Draft Rookies had arrived. I had walked to the mailbox hoping to receive a package from Knight Models for some missing bases, I opened the mailbox and saw an International package and thought perfect timing, I turn the box over and its says SFG.The first wave of the Free Cities Draft Rookies went on sale last Friday morning (7/26), I was actually on the road driving for vacation and had ordered them when I pulled over. This past Monday I received an email that my order had shipped, and like I mentioned above, they arrived yesterday.My son and I quickly took them downstairs to the mancave and opened the box to check out the quality of the new resin. I am impressed, as other have mentioned already, the new quality of the resin in excellent, it is almost like the resin is PVC plastic (much better than the last batch of new Captains that came out).This morning I cleaned up and assembled 'Layne' and '
Week #30 was not a bad week at all, not many games were played, but more painting did continue. I was able to complete my 2 lists that I want to play at the 250 Rep Friday tournament at Renegade Open, at least my lists for now. The Renegade Open is still about 4 months away, so ideas my change, new models may entice me to change lists, but if all that fails, I have my backup plans.I was out of town for most of the weekend visiting the Mighty Mac up in Northern Michigan so not much gaming was played this week, but we did manage to get in a game of X-Wing yesterday afternoon. I was trying a different Rebel Alliance list and my son was trying out the Galactic Republic for the first time. My Rebels ended up winning 327-73, and I am seriously considering that list for the NOVA Open next month.Might MacSo that brings me to the NOVA Open at the end of next month where my son and I will be playing in the X-Wing Grand Championships on Friday and the Guild Ball Regional Cup tournament on Saturda
Today the fifth Rookie from the Free Cities Draft was released, and it is 'Amber' for the Farmer's Guild.You can read about 'Amber' on the SFG blog HERE, and her cards are below. The new Rookies went on sale today, and of course, the collector in me had to pick them all up, you never know when I will change Guilds to play, so I want to make sure I have all the options.
The fourth Rookie from the Free Cities Draft is released today, and it is 'Gaffer' for the Mortician's Guild.You can read about 'Gaffer' on the SFG blog HERE, and his cards are below. I am not sure what time all these new Rookies will go on sale tomorrow, but since I will be driving for a weekend getaway, I'll be sure to pull over and get my order in.
