Battle Report: Guild Ball 2/17/2019 Butcher's vs Hunter's

With Bourbon Trail Open IV fast approaching this weekend, and missing out on an event this past Saturday, my son and I were able to squeeze in a game last night.I felt like playing a change today, so I went with 'Fillet' as my Captain to get a little bit more practice with her, but I was actually stunned when I saw my son throw down 'Skatha' instead of 'Theron'.  This was definitely going to be a little different now. FilletPrincessBoilerV OxBrisketBoar SkathaSnowV MinxSeenahChaskaUlfrI do not recall all the exact details, but here quick breakdown: Hunter's went up early 4-0 with a Screamer Goal from 'Skatha'.  Butcher's came back with a Taken Outs to make the game 4-2.  When 'Skatha' came back onto the Pitch, she managed to retrieve the ball and go in for another score giving the Hunter's a 8-2 lead.  The Butcher's Goal Kick was placed perfectly for 'Brisket' to activate and go on a goal run herself.... Screaming Goal for 'Brisket', 8-6 Hunter's.  Butcher's then were able t

Weekly Chronicle 2019 #7 (Week of Bourbon Trail Open IV)

Seven weeks into 2019 and honestly I am way behind on what I had set myself out to complete for this year.  I have only played 6 games of Guild Ball, 4 of Destiny and that is it, I only finished painting 1 model and that was 'Rookie Seenah' way back at the beginning of January.  I had really expected to have more games of Guild Ball in by now, along with a few of X-Wing.  AdeptiCon is coming next month and I have no practice games of X-Wing in, I think next week it will be time to sliding in a game a week.This past week was almost a pretty pathetic week for me, but yesterday made some of it back up.  I was suppose to play in a Guild Ball event on Saturday up in Grand Rapids, but some personal business I had to get done had me driving to Chicago for the day, there went 4 games I could have played.  Luckily yesterday evening my son and I were able to squeeze a practice game in (short report coming later).  Also yesterday morning I actually did a lot of work on 'Veteran Calculus' an

Weekly Chronicle 2019 #6

Another pretty slow week has come and gone for me.  Painting wise nothing has been completed and is looking like a pretty poor year in that regards, currently I am in the mentality of just playing what I already have painted and it may look like that for most of the year.I did manage a few games in this week, 2 games of Destiny last Monday night, and a game of Guild Ball yesterday morning.  I have a semi local event coming up this Saturday in Grand Rapids and I would like to get in one more practice game this week before heading up there.Models Completed: 0Games Played: 3

Guild Ball: Miner's Minor Guild Official Release Date

In a shocking update from Steamforged Games this morning, the Minor guild for the Engineer's, the Miner's are going to be made available for pre-orders on February 15th, 2019 and will be released on March 1st, 2019.  That is 2 weeks before the release of the Cook's Minor Guild that was announced a few weeks ago.Also in a slight twist, the Miner's will not be made in plastic like all the previous Minor Guilds, nor come in a fancy box, due to the size of some of the models, SFG elected to cast the Miner's in resin and they will be packaged in legacy boxes.  I am a little disappointed in this for a few reasons:1. The plastic models were easier for a new player to purchase and place on the table to get started with a game (SFG original intentions for going to plastic)2. Along the same lines as #1 above, the resin models will need to be assembled.3. No consistency in material across their lines.At the same time with this announcement, SFG announced a new way for local gaming stores to order with them and

Guild Ball: Pitches Arrived

I am running my first Guild Ball event next month on March 16th, 2019 at Fantasy Games in South Bend, IN and the event more than likely will not sell out the 16 spots allocated, I thought just in case I better purchase some more Guild Ball Pitches.Currently I own 5 Pitches, 2 Steamforged Games Classic Pitches and 3 Hidden Forest Pitches which would be enough for a 10 player event.Steamforged Games Classic PitchHidden Forest PitchBefore leaving on vacation, I came across a website that was clearing out the Steamforged Games Classic Pitches and Proving Ground Pitches, these Pitches retail for $58.00 and they were down to $20.00.  At that price, I ordered 5 more Pitches, 4 of the Classic and 1 of the Proving Grounds (since I did not own one of these yet).Steamforged Games Proving Grounds PitchWhile on vacation last week, my package arrived and I finally gotten around to open the shipping boxes.With the 10 Pitches that i know currently own, hosting a 16-20 player event will not be a problem.
