Guild Ball: Mason's Guild 'Veteran Chisel'

It has been quite awhile since I last worked on a Mason's Guild model, but now the Guild is back to being fully completed.  'Veteran Chisel' comes from "The Faithful New Beginnings" box, which are players loyal to their teammates and Guild, respect and honour foremost in their minds as they begin the next chapter of their lives. Veteran ChiselVeteran ChiselPainting Points: 1

Guild Ball: Ratcatcher's Guild 'LE Cheese Ball'

This past weekend at the "Holiday Guild Ball" tournament in Grand Rapids, I failed to come home with the "Wooden Spoon" award, but I did manage to bring home a Limited Edition Ratcatcher's Cheese Ball.Come 2019 I will be concentrating on finishing up my remaining Guild Ball models, plus all the new models coming out next year and I have a pretty healthy backlog of the current Minor Guilds waiting to be painted.  More thank likely I will be starting on the Ratcatcher's Minor Guild come January so I thought what a better way to kick them off than painting their 'LE Cheese Ball'. LE Cheese BallLE Cheese BallPainting Points: 1

Weekly Chronicle 2018 #49

The end of the year is approaching and I am looking forward to the new year and working on my list of expectations for 2019 (my annual New Year's Day post).  We still have a few more weeks left in 2018 and I am 7 Painting Points shy of beating last year's mark of 320 Points.  Looks like I better hurry up and get some models ready for the painting table.  It is not like I do not have any models in my Painting Queue Backlog, but some of the items I am saving for 2019 (mainly tackling the Minor Guilds for Guild Ball), but I thought of some models yesterday afternoon that should just put me past last year's mark.Back onto my recap of week #49.Painting: Last week only 1 model was completed with 'Veteran Hearne' for my son's Hunter's Guild Ball team, I am glad he got completed and that was the last model for the Guild.  Nothing else was completed, but a few models did get ready for this week.Gaming:  Last week did not see many Battle Reports, on Monday night and yesterday my son and i got i

Battle Report: Guild Ball Recap "Holiday Guild Ball" Tournament

Yesterday was my second ever Guild Ball Tournament that I have attended and Pundit Eric M was running the "Holiday Guild Ball" at The Gaming Warehouse up in Grand Rapids, MI.Leading up to the event it had looked like it may be a small turn out with only 6 players preregistering, but we had 4 more players show up for a total of 10.I am no Guild Ball expert, sure I like to win, but at a tournament I have no high expectations and was expecting to take home the "Wooden Spoon" award.I wont be going into full details of each game (where I probably do not remember them all, but just some brief moments).Round 1: Butcher's vs Engineer's (Adam G)Ox vs BallistaThis game was like a chess match for the first 30 minutes of each of our clocks.  The Engineer's were trying to bait me in but I was standing my ground.  Finally the Engineer's scored a Goal and I rebounding with double Take Outs (4-4).  The Engineer's then picked up the space and managed to get in back to back Goals for a 12-4 win.Round 2: Butcher'

Guild Ball: Hunter's Guild 'Veteran Hearne'

The Hunter's Guild for Guild Ball I can finally say are completed (at least until they expand).  'Veteran Hearne' was the last of the models to be completed and I was able to start on him Monday night and finished him up last night.  With the Steamforged Black Friday Sale, I do have a 'Young Theron' and a 'Rookie Seenah' coming, but those are played as replacements to their original counterparts. Veteran HearneVeteran HearnePainting Points: 2

Weekly Chronicle #48 2018

I would have to say that last week was a pretty good week for me modeling and gaming.  My Mortician's Guild were able to get completed with the last three models being 'Veteran Graves', 'Brainpan' & 'Memory'.Gaming wise, my son and I got in a few games of Star Wars: Destiny in, and I was able to get in games of Guild Ball on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.  Friday night my son and I also squeezed in a game of X-Wing (which was a nice change of pace).The problem with playing more games is that I then fall behind on prepping models in my Painting Queue/Backlog and I only have one model currently ready to hit my painting table.  I am hoping that I can probably start on it tomorrow night and "maybe" get it done this week, but we will have to see.  I have a Guild Ball tournament coming up on Saturday, and Sunday is Guild Ball open play down in South Bend (and I usually can get a lot painted on the weekends.)  I may have to skip open play this coming Sunday so I can catch up on buil

Battle Report: Guild Ball 12/1/2018 Butcher's vs Fisherman's

Yesterday late morning/early afternoon I took a drive up to Grand Rapids to The Gaming Warehouse and met my friend Josh for a game of Guild Ball.  I am trying to get in as much practice as possible and get ready for next weekends tournament up there.I knew my friend lately has been playing the Fisherman's Guild led by 'Shark', so I thought it would be a good time to try out my 'Filet' list again. FilletPrincessBoilerMeathookV OxTenderizerSharkSaltAngelGreyscalesSakanaFathomThe Fisherman kicked off to my Butcher's and I grabbed the ball with 'Meathook' and Passed it back to 'Filet' along with Tooled Up.  Now 'Shark' was thinking about his Turn 1 Goal.  'Shark' did manage to get into 'Filet' but he took a pretty deep cut from 'Meathook' which caused him to Bleed.  'Shark' got the ball away from 'Filet' and took the shot and scored (4-0 Fisherman), and then proceeded to Dodge behind the goal line.  Butcher's obviously did some pay back and took out 'Shark'.  At the end of Turn

Battle Report: Guild Ball 11/29/2018 Butcher's vs Hunter's

Last night it was another night for my Butcher's, and the first time playing 'Fillet' in a long time (only tried her once in Season 4).  There was a great article written this past week on another blog about playing 'Fillet' and I thought I would giver her another shot.  My son and his Hunter's elected to try 'Skatha' one more time.  Just like me and 'Ox', my son's preferred Caption in 'Theron'. FilletPrincessBoilerMeathookV OxTenderizer SkathaSnowV MinxSeenahUlfrZarolaThe Hunter's kicked off to my Butcher's to my left side, 'Meathook' activated and went to retrieve the ball and elected to Pass it back to 'Fillet' but missed the Tap In Pass (with 3 dice) so the ball scattered to my right near 'Veteran Ox', the location was actually pretty good.  'Meathook' had also applied Tooled Up on 'Fillet' to help with her damage output.  The next move was a little unexpected, 'Skatha' decided to go for the ball and try a first turn Goal, the only problem was that 'Skatha' was inexperie

Guild Ball: Mortician's Guild 'Memory'

This is it for now, my Mortician's are now completed for Guild Ball.  The last model needed was 'Memory' which is a companion for 'Brainpan'.  'Memory' actually does not count as a player in your lineup, but instead is automatically included with 'Brainpan' and is an extra model on the Pitch.  'Memory' has no MOV stat and does not count for any VP if Taken Out.  'Memory' can only move by Character Plays and Character Traits from 'Brainpan' or his own Character Trait, Control Strings. MemoryMemoryPainting Points: 1

Guild Ball: Mortician's Guild 'Brainpan'

I am nearing the finish line for completing my Mortician's Guild.  Just the final 2 models of 'Brainpan & Memory' and today we have 'Brainpan'.  Currently in the rosters I am seeing for Season 4, 'Brainpan & Memory' are not being used much, I am not sure why, I think they could be a fun pair to play with it.  One day when time allows I may have to give them a try in a friendly game. BrainpanBrainpanPainting Points: 1

Guild Ball: Muse on Minis 'Navigator & Order Tokens'

This past Thursday night after my Thanksgiving dinner I went online to start my Black Friday shopping with Steamforged Games.  Once I was completed with SFG, I decided to head over to Muse on Minis to add a few more token sets to my collection since they were having a 20% off sale.Since the Navigators will finally be shipping in a few weeks, it was a good time to prepare for them and purchase their set.  I also decided to purchase a set of the Order tokens, these were purchased more for a "just in case" I decide to give them a try every now and then.  When I purchased my Season 4 upgrade tokens  few weeks, I skipped out on upgrading my Union tokens (I should have added them to this order by I forgot), the reason I did not upgrade them before is that I honestly do not think I will be playing or trying the Union anytime soon.  The Order on the other hand may be a fun Guild to try out with their Captain 'Seasoned Brisket' and their awesome Mascot 'Pride' the lion.Next thing I know on Fri

Guild Ball: Mortician's Guild 'Veteran Graves'

After finishing 'Veteran Hemlocke' last week, I was in the mood to continue working on my Mortician's Guild.  I have only played with the Mortician's one time so far, but after my tournament on December 8th I may give them some more time on the Pitch.I have only 3 more models left to complete out of the 14 and the entire Guild will be finished, so up next we have 'Veteran Graves', a Defensive Midfielder.  From the lists I have seen in the Facebook Groups, he seems to be played quite often.  Since he was not completed in time for my game with them, I may have to try him out next time. Veteran GravesVeteran GravesPainting Points: 1

Guild Ball: Art Of War Studios 'Melee Zone Templates'

Since I first learned of Art of War Studios last year, I really liked the products that they make.  Before I had purchased into the Broken Egg Games movement sticks, I was considering Art of War Studios.  Two things kept me from purchasing them, one they are UK based and shipping takes longer to arrive, two the movement sticks are thinner than Broken Egg Games, I actually prefer the wider sticks since the width is the same as the ball.Art of War Studios also make Melee Zone Templates and these are always handy to have.  A little more than 2 weeks ago I finally placed an order with them for the Melee Zone Templates.  Each kit comes with 6 templates, a 1" 30/40/50mm and a 2" 30/40/50mm and costs around  £4.49.  Since there are times my model may zig-zag between 2 models, I decided to purchase 2 kits.  For myself I went with the Butcher's color and for my son, the Hunter's.Today the USPS just delivered our package and I had to open them right away.  They are just exac

Weekly Chronicle #47 2018

It was a pretty decent week for me in terms of gaming and hobbying, nothing over the top but a good mix of both.In gaming I was able to get in a game of Guild Ball on Monday an Wednesday night, then yesterday my son and I tried out our new Star Wars: Destiny starter sets.  I actually really enjoyed playing Destiny (I personally enjoyed it more than Magic the Gathering), I think having the dice in the game helps change it up a bit.For hobbying/modeling, I was able to complete 3 models for the Mortician's Guild with 'Vileswarm'. 'Scalpel' and 'Veteran Hemlocke'.  Only 3 more models left for the Mortician's and their whole Guild will be completed.  Since I am rolling with the Mortician's, I will continue to work on them this week.Gaming this week, I am not sure what is in the current pipeline.  I would like to get in another game of Destiny, and more than likely we will get in some more Guild Ball, I'd like to give 'Fillet' another shot for my Butcher's.Models Completed: 3Games Played: 3
