  1. Going to have to agree with Akaleth for the most part, with a few caveats. It does depend on what captain you're running. Brisk3t and Blackheart are both looking for the better ball handling (On My Mark or I'm Open), while vRage would prefer the furious charge and battery. Decimate can do quite a bit of damage under Bloody Coin or My Gang, as long as you have the influence. When I've used Decimate with vRage, she's stayed just out of the action until the round after Harry or Gutter go down, then get's their influence to keep the pain train a runnin'. Of course, the same can be done with Minx. I've also had some problems with Minx being controlled by a 2 in melee model engaging her. So, they fill slightly different roles IMO, but, you can cut one to keep the other, you just have to decide what priority you want to have.
  2. Yeah, I'm not sure any input at this point would really matter, but I think I support Nashville now just to annoy #BanSammons.
  3. Many have said this. Few have succeeded.
  4. Which would you prefer? Because you get to choose. You also don't have to push them anywhere. So you can do one attack on a model and pule before pushing 0 inches, then do a second attack on the same model, and push 4 inches and then pulse, hopefully catching new models.
  5. If you're playing oKat and Harry with Midas, you have two sources of Fire, so if she does something to enhance that damage or a play like Intensify (or just Intensify) She should work just fine for Midas.
  6. I'd pay $2 to get a seat in the stadium.
  7. Just when he travels with Jordan. Same for Pat.
  8. I play Hemlocke with Smoke sometimes, and she gets played instead of Calculus when I play her. Hemlocke can't take as much damage, but is Def 5 instead of Def 4 Arm 1. Hemlocke also brings smelling salts, useful in the mirror or against Fillet butchers and hunters. It all depends on what you think you'll need, the smelling salts or the extra hit boxes.
  9. Personally, I drop Calculus/Mercury/Hemlocke altogether and put in Decimate. She brings momentous playbook results all over the place, and while MT<< is on 4 hits, she's TAC 6 with anatomical precision, so you can get the ball and get away a lot more often then you think , especially against the low DEF targets that make up the Mason's team. And then with a 3/6" Kick, she can shoot if close enough or pass off to Vitriol/Mist/Midas. She can also set up or finish off someone with Midas or Vitriol. It is a fourth influence hungry model, but whatever you were going to give to Vitriol or Mist can go to her after they get taken out and she'll get some work done.
  10. Oak Park Gaming Goat has a few, but when Fair Game closes they'll likely get a lot of those players. There is a Dice Dojo group above, so that should help you out. Several of Dice Dojo's Warmachine players have teams, so if you know them, you probably already know your Guild Ball opponents. I believe they try to get together on Sundays.
  11. Not a problem! We're always happy to see more players! We're just not always great at checking this forum.
  12. So, I'm kinda from the area, in that I keep thinking about going to UGG in Grayslake, but just being too tired to make the hike after work on Tuesdays. Hey! That's today if you want to go to UGG and meet people. Chicagoland does alot of it's Guild Ball co-ordination through Facebook, since most of us were already there for other mini's games. Chicagoland Guild Ball: https://www.facebook.com/groups/145805579110170/ Tuesday Tabletop Gaming (Mostly for Unique Gifts and Games): https://www.facebook.com/groups/1724403824485904/ Scions of Olympus Gaming (A bit more general of a group, but does have Guild Ball): https://www.facebook.com/groups/937940429583920/ And if you're willing to go into the city to play, Dice Dojo Guild Ball: https://www.facebook.com/groups/841755325930268/ Hope to see you in one or more of these groups soon!
  13. Also, if you're on Facebook and haven't joined the Chicagoland Guild Ball Group, do that as well! There's also a Dice Dojo Guild Ball group, another handy resource for finding players and games!
  14. I would say a glue or tar bomb, since we're pretty close to having those in the real world as a less then lethal option.
  15. Fair Game in Downer's Grove will be your closest store to Lisle. I'm not sure that Draxtar or Games Plus have gotten anyone interested in Guild Ball (yet), but the other stores have some people, and Adepticon really swelled our numbers. If you're on Facebook, feel free to join the Chicagoland Guild Ball group and the Dice Dojo Guild Ball group.
