Guild Ball: Butcher'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).

Well this is the Rookie I have been waiting for since the results of the Free Cities Draft, 'Layne' for the Butcher's Guild, another Striker for our Guild.You can read about 'Layne' on the SFB blog HERE, and his cards are below. I am really looking forward to that +1/0" KICK each time he inflicts damage, and the T playbook result on a successful attack.I really hope I can get him in time and play him at NOVA Open.
With the release of the four new Captains two weeks for Guild Ball, and one of them being a new Captain for my favorite Guild, the Butcher's Guild, it was only obvious that 'Veteran Boar' (also known as VCB) would be the first of the new Captains to hit my painting table.The new Captain models are being produced in the new colored resin that Steamforged Games has switched too, eliminating their metal productions, and I am not a fan of the resin. One of 'VCB's weapons easily snapped off his belt, and even back when I worked on 'Rookie Seenah', one of the collars had snapped on that model. Some companies produce very nice resin models that are more sturdy (Privateer Press), but the resin that SFG is using is too soft/brittle. I personally prefer their metals models first, followed by the PVC (plastic) models. My Miner's models also are colored resin, we shall how they look like when it comes time to assembling them.I really was in no rush to complete 'VCB', the only timeline I had was by
WOW! one week for me to receive a package from the UK, and it even had a tracking number that worked all the way till it was delivered.Last week my order for the new Miner's Minor Guild and my new Captains 'Yukai', 'Mourn' and 'Veteran Boar' ('Steeljaw' delayed) were shipped and my package just arrived this afternoon.It was now time for a quick unboxing.Looks like 'Veteran Boar' is going to have to be assembled and quickly painted for AdeptiCon.
The third new Captains story is released today, and it is 'Veteran Boars' for the Butcher's guild.
Oh Boy, Oh Boy! Steamforged Games just teased another new Captains video today, and it is 'Veteran Boar' for my Butcher's Guild.......the excitement!
I finally got around to finishing the last model for my Butcher's Guild. I do have to say that my Butcher's Guild were all completed until this past spring/early summer when they released the models from last years "Union in Chains" campaign. During the "Union in Chains" campaign, 'Veteran Gutter' was being fought for from the Fisherman's Guild and the Butcher's Guild, and obviously the Butcher's Guild prevailed.Now I actually I have to try her out on the pitch, which I am hoping to do tomorrow night.Veteran GutterVeteran GutterPainting Points: 1
For the last few days, the media outlet has been releasing sneak peeks of the upcoming Season 4 cards for the Guild Ball Guilds for the release of Season 4 this weekend, and today was the day of the Butcher's Guild release.I have not played Guild Ball for quite awhile now (around AdeptiCon 2018), but I am really looking forward to the new release of Season 4 and playing with my Butcher's Guild. The Butcher's Guild fits my play style (dealing out damage) and I cannot wait to give them a try this weekend. I have 12 models completed for my Butcher's and still need to assemble/paint their new recruit in 'Gutter'. Maybe after this weekend I will get her up on the painting table.Below are all the new Season 4 cards for the Butcher's Guild, now I just have to decide on a roster of 6 to try out this weekend.
