  1. Warriors Weekend April 7th 2018

    Tried to run a tournament in Victoria, BC Canada for Warriors Weekend (benefiting Pilgrim Bandits, a charity for veterans). Local meta has decreased in favor of other games. Due to commitments by other people, it ended up being more of a showcase day with myself and another fellow playing two games before doing something else. Did generate interest in possible new players though so that and raising money for a charity isn't all that bad.

    masterkdog, not really. It took me six weeks to paint all the Union players and I've been posting them 2-3 a week on weekends. On an average week I can finish 2 to 4 models but its been slowing down recently since I've been running a roleplaying adventure and writing/correcting yearly evaluations. Is 2 to 4 a week insane? Benediction. For more go here. Going to work on Alchemists in about six months.
  3. In anticipation of the figs being released in less than six months I thought I would make a proper pitch for Guildball rather than the basic tan felt i have been using. For this project I used: Dark Green Felt at least three by three feet in size, fabric pencil, craftsman ruler (three feet in length) and yellow fabric paint. For the "Icy Sponge" sidelines I used lighter green felt. Here is the finished product: The "Icy Sponge" sidelines: And a closeup of the finished pitch: For step by step instructions, head over to my gaming blog here.

  20. Odd Fellows Charity Guildball Tournament

    During the 3nd Annual Odd Fellows Tabletop Tournament in Victoria BC, the original organizer for the Guildball event had something come up so I ran the small event. This year the Victoria Lodge #1 Bursary committee was the recipient of the entry fees to aid in their efforts to provide educational bursaries to students in need of financial assistance. With 8 participants, including myself as a by player, the winner after three games was Bryce and second was Sam. Many mentioned how they liked the casual atmosphere and friendly opponents. Best goal went to Veronica. Best painted went to Bryce. Best sportsman went to Jason Langlois.

  22. Hearye…Hearye. There will be a Guildball tournament on the 30th of September at DiceBagGames, starting 1000 and continuing till approximately 1800 (6pm). It will be made up of three rounds, with the best of each round (by wins) facing off against each other till the final round. The winner will be the coach with the most wins, followed by total biggest point difference of all rounds, followed by most VPs. Entry is $7 per coach. Sixteen coaches max. Prizes will be awarded to 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, best sportsman, best goal, and best painted team. There will also be a doorprize of a brand new Blacksmith’s guild team box, given at the end of the tournament to one of the participants, provided by Colin! Games will last 90 minutes. Players will have a pool of ten players, one Union player maximum (unless playing Union). Before the game begins, coaches simultaneously reveal a Captain and Mascot. Players then reveal one additional player, in order of the person who won the kickoff die roll, until a full roster of Captain, Mascot, and four players have been achieved. Coaches will then set up, as per normal rules, and stop after the ball has been kicked off and before the maintenance phase begins. They will then await the whistle for everyone to simultaneously start. Timings, as always, are tentative and are hopefully as follows 1000: Everyone arrives, fills out forms, and greets your honoured opponents. 1015: Opening ceremonies (speeches and day’s schedule) 1020: First game setup 1030: First game start 1200: First game end, painting and goal judging by participants 1250: Second game setup 1300: Second game start 1430: Second game end 1450: Third game setup 1500: Third game start 1630: Third game end, best sportsman voting by participants 1700: Prizes awarded. Coaches disperse Which coaches will arrive for the competition! Who will take a knee...an arm...a concussion?
  23. Guild Ball Tournament at Dice Bag Games in Duncan, B.C.

    No problem Marcvs Avrellivs! A fun day was had by nine participating coaches with me acting as a fill in coach. There were three Farmer teams, three Butcher, one Brewer, one Union, one Hunter, and myself as Mason. First place went to Jeremy (Butcher) as the only person with three wins. Second place went to Jeff (Farmer). Third place went to Rob (Farmer). Best Goal went to Bryce (Brewer) for his beer stein. Best Painted went to Jeremy (Butcher) Best Sportsman went to Austin (Union) The Blacksmith's box went to Tyler. The LE Mist went to Craig. For unofficial bragging rights, the most brutal goes to Jeremy (Butcher) with 13 player and 1 mascot takeouts. Most goals is tied between Craig (Butchers) and Rob (Farmers) with three each. I thank everyone for coming out and Dicebaggames for hosting. A great place to visit when on Vancouver Island and near Duncan.
  24. The assistance of two local players, Bryce and Jason L, helped to generate conversations and interest in Guildball. The owner is going to bring in some six player starter boxes and rulebooks. I've started asking local players to play some games on the Sunday Warmahordes afternoons and Monday's XWing night to generate cross game interest.
