Miniatures: Guild Ball
Well I was able to get another model completed just in time for AdeptiCon 2019 (just in case my son will be adding this model to his roster). 'Steeljaw' the new Captain for the Hunter's Guild is now completed. 'Steeljaw' is one of the four new Captains released on March 1st and my third one completed. It may be awhile before I get to the fourth ('Yukai') since I gave my model to my friend while he waits for his purchase to arrive. SteeljawSteeljawPainting Points: 1
I had a busy last couple of days assembling models, first with 'Mataagi' and 'Mourn', then 'Steeljaw' and then I decided to work on assembling the new Miner's Minor Guild.Unlike the previous Minor Guilds; Ratcatcher's, Falconer's, Navigator's and upcoming Cook's which all come as PVC plastic material, the Miner's Minor Guild come as colored resin and need assembly. I also have the alternate sculpts for 'Salvo' and 'Colossus' so I assembled those at the same time.At least now they can hit the Pitch and we can see what they can do as a team.
With the recent release of three new Captains this past March 1st, my Mortician's were now incomplete and I had to get 'Mourn' completed. 'Veteran Boar' was the first of the new Captains completed since the Butcher's are my go to playing Guild, and yesterday I decided to just quickly paint up 'Mourn' for the Mortician's. My paint style for the Mortician's is quick and easy (table top quality) so I knew she would not take long to complete. With that, my Mortician's are back to being completed.

Back when I purchased "The Falconer's Guild: Daughter of Falcons", I also received a Limited Edition alternate sculpt of 'Mataagi'. This worked out really nice because 'Mataagi' is also one of the Falconer's that can play for the Hunter's Guild. With the recent errata change to 'Chaska', my son has been trying out 'Mataagi' more and more and I thought now would be a perfect time to get him completed just in time for AdeptiCon.

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.
It was very nice that the TO for Bourbon Trail Open IV provided the players with a little swag bag, and inside each bag were a pair of dice, a BTO IV button, and a custom painted 3D Goal. The Goals I usually use for my Guilds are made from acrylic and have the Guilds logo on them, but it was nice to actually have a 3D Goal, and one in the shape of a Bourbon barrel.Seeing how my son also received the same swag bag, I thought it would be nice to get both of these painted up and they can be used for future events. Dice and button from swag bag. Red for my Butcher's and Cook's, Green for my son's Hunter's and Alchemist's.Painting Points: 10
It has been a pretty long time since I completed a model for 2019, but this past Sunday I finally sat down and got some painting done. With all the new Captain models coming out and my Cook's Minor Guild, I thought it was time to shake the paint bottles and get something completed.I am still trying to complete some of the one off models I have for my existing Guilds first, so today I present 'Veteran Calculus' to finish up the Alchemist's Guild.

It has been just about two months since I placed my order for the 'The Navigator's Guild: Tales of the New World' back on November 22nd through a US website on the West Coast. and finally yesterday my package has arrived. Originally it was suppose to land in the US early December and shipped out mid December (in time for Christmas). Delays kept on pushing out the date, and being lost at Sea did not help either (it turns out the US actually ships products by boat in the US from Florida to California). Florida is where the container originally arrived and then they had to make their way to some of the West Coast distributors (which went by boat), then when it arrived, they did not have the correct paperwork from Steamforged Games and had to wait for SFG to return to the office due to the Holidays. So finally yesterday afternoon around 3:00 PM, the USPS delivered my package.Inspired by their captain's leadership, the men and women of the Navigator's Guild revel in unorthodox play, cr
Well I did not get in a game on New Year's Day, but I did manage to spend the morning and get in some painting. Late last week I received my second Black Friday order from Steamforged Games and part of that order was 'Rookie Seenah'. I had two other models prepped for painting on my table, but on New Year's Eve I decided to get 'Rookie Seenah' ready also so I could come down in the morning and start painting.I knew this model would not take long to complete, so it was a good model to start 2019 off with.

It has been pretty quiet around here this week with the Holiday's. not much modeling nor gaming (hoping to get in a game later today). On Christmas Eve this past Monday, one half of my Steamforged Games Black Friday Sale package finally arrived. My boxed set for The Union 'Faithful of Solthecius' finally came in. This boxed set represents The Union models that separated and formed The Order Minor Guild.I actually have majority of the models that already belong to The Order, but I was missing the Mascot 'Pride', with Steamforged Gamed having issues with their website during the Black Friday Sale and the Limited Edition version of 'Pride' kept on saying "sold out", I just went ahead and ordered the full boxed set anyways. The existing Union models that I already have, I can paint them a little differently, or may even sell some of them individually, we'll see what happens with them later (I am in no rush with them).Once I get these models assembled early next year, I may actually try a g
