  1. New Home Field!

    Who did your art? I see they don't do the whole thing but I wouldn't mind printing one up for tournament prize support. Even at full price that isn't a bad deal.
  2. NEW OPD (15.12.17)

    I think you can clear it up but just adding "upto" right before "10 models." SEMANTICS!
  3. New Home Field!

    Dirty son. Love it. Did you upload a pdf or is that one they normally sell?
  4. Stick with 6 player boxes, not 12 for the plastic re-release

    A KS could be super friendly to LGS. If you offer a retailer pack like they did with Dark Souls. Gives the stores that want into it a chance to get it early. What you have to remember though is that those other guilds are not even on the table yet. They might not ever be. Buy the Fishermen if you want them. Don't if you don't. Maybe they make more of them if this goes well, maybe they don't if this goes poorly. Losing sales is a non issue if the sale never existed. Releasing 9 guilds in plastic at the same time that have metal counterparts is a bad idea if you don't know your audience is going to buy them. It is bad for stores that order them hoping to sell when they turn into dead stock.
  5. Working on a new project. No news on it yet but excited to be bringing some folks into the fold.

  6. So two guys walk into a forest

    Ok so what is the deal with forests? At SCUS there were forests with removable trees which made sense to me. You move in, they get in the way, you take them out but the terrain functions as normal and effectively the trees are there for cosmetic purposes. I'm looking at this Steamforged terrain pack it explicitly states there is a forest in the pack. One assumes that the piece with the tree is the forest. Unless I am not seeing this correctly though it would appear the tree is not removable. Can there be obstructions and/or barriers within a forest? I was under the impression there could not be. If it is neither a barrier nor an obstruction what is it?
  7. Stick with 6 player boxes, not 12 for the plastic re-release

    I like some of the poses in plastic but I do very much prefer how easy metal models are to work with. I like the natural weight to them too. As staunch a supporter of the Fishermen that I am, I have not taken the survey as I think plastic will be more trouble for SF than it is worth. I'll probably get the rest of the Union, Engineers, and Alchemists in metal. I'll wait and see if we get plastic on Butchers and Morticians as I have painted Silence twice for others and he makes me want to hurt things.
  8. Stick with 6 player boxes, not 12 for the plastic re-release

    That is kind of the point though. They wouldn't want to remake a guild that doesn't have enough interest for fear of losing on that product. I would imagine they are likely going to go one at a time to make sure this venture doesn't blow up in their face. Losing your ass on 1 guild if things don't pan out sucks. Losing it on 9 at the same time would be a disaster. That's pretty pessimistic isn't it? I mean I gave a slew of reasons that they could be considering this strategy earlier in the thread. Nobody is forcing anyone to do anything. If you don't want to buy a 12 man box then don't. It is an easy solution. If you want a rereleased product in plastic then we as a community need to understand that there are likely going to need to be some compromises on the matter. To be totally honest I'm not sure why they don't kickstart the plastic remakes. They have a tradition of killing it on Kickstarter. Have a store package and a player package, include the metal LE only in the kickstarter and give us some kickstarter exclusive alt art cards. Then they can make sure they hit what they need with minimal risk and cash upfront. Then you just phase out the metal now that your plastic molds are paid for. Run them one at a time to generate a pop for each guild. The only thing I could think of is what it might do to sales of the metal 6 man boxes that are already out in LGS.
  9. What about a "Creator" sub?

    What do you all think about a sub forum for content creators? Somewhere to easily find your favorite blogs and new creators easily? It isn't world ending the way things are now (i.e. creators usually just post in the general guild ball forum) but it might be nice if you are looking for something specific to have a sub to find them in. Maybe a nice place to discuss creating content with other creators and share tips, tricks, and time savers? I was going to just shoot @Mako a message but thought I'd canvas and see if there was even interest in something like that. I also don't know how much work something like that would demand and that is why I tagged our Administrator in Chief. Would something like that be useful to creators and readers?
  10. Not About Guild Ball

    So this isn't necessarily about Guild Ball but it is happening as a direct result of my going to SteamCon. Nearly 4 years ago I was fortunate enough to meet a really great girl who supports me in everything I do. She is coming with to Chicago but not attending SteamCon, as she is going to be doing a lot of shopping and doesn't care for miniatures. This Sunday night we are going ice skating at Millennium Park after the convention and I'm going to ask her to be my wife. I'm pretty excited and I spend more time here (to my boss's dismay) than I do with most of my friends and I consider a lot of you to be brothers and sisters in our big Guild Ball forum family. Just thought I'd share with everyone. I'll post pictures sometime Monday morning as I am feeling pretty confident. **Added an image, others on my friends' phones. Will put them up when I can. Center ice was a little crowded to do it in front of everyone so I pretended my lace came undoneand when I got down to "tie it" I popped the question. Great grandma's ring. She was as happy as can be. Had great friends willing to just hang out for a bit to get pictures. Thanks for all the kind words everyone. Had a great weekend.
  11. Stick with 6 player boxes, not 12 for the plastic re-release

    I imagine SKUs are playing a role in this 12 man box idea. Cutting the number of SKUS in half to keep a full line seems pretty LGS friendly. One would also assume that SF is planning to sell fewer of these rereleases (not because they want to but because of demand.). Perhaps cutting down on the packaging, shipping, design time for the extra ball/goal/terrain, and the making of a mold for a 2nd ball/goal/terrain piece helps them stay profitable on something that people want but don't want as much as something they don't already own. To be clear that is just how I rationalize the idea of a 12man box. I would prefer two 6 man boxes.
  12. 2018 Canadian Nationals x 2 ... Any Details Yet?

    Getting ready to invade Canada. Look out friendliest people on earth.
  13. Musings on Veterans, New teams, and the Future

    This crossed my mind when typing the OP and my orginal thought was they don't really do stuff like that but then I started thinking about it more and that is something we have seen recently. Dark Harvest is a cross model 6 man pack. The Hearth and Buckwheat combo is also an example of this. Growth is an obvious priority but I think SF is banking on most players owning several guilds so, despite the inevitable bellyaching of some, I would say the idea of mixed pack seems as likely as anything else we stumble aimlessly speculate about.
  14. I'll apologize in advance for any lack of cohesiveness. This post started as one subject and turned into just a string of thoughts. So with Blacksmiths and Farmers 1&2 now out in the wild something had crossed my mind. A lot if talk about the power of these teams has come up but something I don't' recall seeing anyone mention is the distinct lack of veterans on either team. On most teams there are 12 in faction players. Most if the time 1 of these players is a veteran (Butchers being the odd man out having 2 veterans.) This means you effectively means that you are always list building a man down in a certain kind of way. I'm not glad about Fish losing to Butchers in UiC but in retrospect they could use a unique model more than anyone else. With the new boxes coming in sets of 6 and with minor guilds on the way it would also seem unlikely that Smiths or Farmers will be getting a veteran (nor all other guilds an additional model to offset this) any time soon. Do we perhaps see the farmers and smiths both give up a player to their minor guild to act as a dual player? From a purely backstory value Alloy seems a reasonable choice from the smiths if this were the case. Farmers could be anyone really. Obviously the lack of a veteran doesn't completely take things out of whack and obviously the original guilds are competitive. My point here is there an undebatable amount of strength that comes with not having a veteran model in your wings. This isn't a complaint or a gripe but rather an observation. The new guilds benefit from having come later in the game in unique ways be it a mountain of influence at their disposal or no mascots and 5 possible captains on a tournament roster. All of this makes me wonder what is in store for the game in season 4. A large rework would seem to make the most sense at that juncture if ever we get one. I'm not necessarily saying we need one but it would seem the most logical place for one if indeed one is coming. Perhaps specific guild mechanics akin to Blacksmiths and Farmers could be introduced. Pick it apart. Expand on something you like. Let flow your string of untempered thoughts which find no home in another thread. Hope everyone had a great weekend.
  15. What's next for GICs?

    I respectfully disagree. I don' think there is a chance we see GICs until new plot cards are settled in but I don't think they operate in the same design space. Plot cards = random-ish/one time burns/hidden knowledge =/= Guild Identities = team patch/open knowledge/chosen It would feel like a bit of let down if we didn't get them into the main game wouldn't it? We got a pretty positive reaction out of SFG at the close of the trial and were even encouraged to keep playing with them so my spirits are still high. I'd like to see them sooner rather than later but I'd be kinda bummed if we didn't see the as part of the main game in season 4.
  16. Tuesday Night GB (TNGB)

    It depends on what you want to accomplish. I think just swapping Seenah for one of the players in your butchers line up might feel odd since it looks very football oriented and you won't have much to keep the other guy off of Seenah being spread out. I think this depends more on opponent captain pick. I don't think I have the stomach to play the bear into Fillet since she could pretty reasonable one round Seenah. Into Ox it is still risky but if you can screen the bear with a forest or maybe Hearne, just something to keep them from piling in, it isn't a crazy pick. Butchers are smashy but 6 players on the team have less than 15 starting health which Seenah likes. Just go into the game assuming that your opponent is going to clear snare every chance they get because they ARE going to win the momentum race on you.
  17. Tuesday Night GB (TNGB)

    @Coach Z is spot on. Lotsa 1" melee models on the Butchers' line up makes those dodges very powerful. Fillet, Meathook, oBrisket, and Shank probably won't change their damage results much but if the other players have damage + a dodge or push at all it is lower in the playbook and generally with less damage. Might not get you out of a ton of melee zone but it very well could keep a player in the game longer.
  18. Musings on Veterans, New teams, and the Future

    Obviously if you watched South Park's "Go God Go" episode you'd know that they were at war with the United Atheist Alliance and the Unified Atheist League. Duh
  19. De Tinnen Roos Statue Dimensions

    Any chance we know if that is the raw look or if they finished that with something? Looks more finished in that pic that in the store page. Looks great. EDIT: I didn't see this earlier. Appears to be 2 versions. https://store.steamforged.com/collections/guild-ball/products/de-tinnen-roos-guild-ball-statue-ready-to-display
  20. Musings on Veterans, New teams, and the Future

    Did you know in the year 2546 the Otters have discovered the superior answer to Science's greatest question in that atheists should call themselves the Allied Atheist Alliance so that there are 3 "A's" in the acronym? Now we've both learned something today.
  21. Musings on Veterans, New teams, and the Future

    Man I literally cannot wait for a bloodthirsty Salt, driven to an unending rage by the loss of his best friend, to mess that damned Lion up. @Sherwin make it happen, you know you wan to. Captain Veteran Lord of the Deep Salt.
  22. Blacksmiths vs Hunters

    All football is pretty strong but there is a lot to be said about Burnish starting a turn by building up momentum and popping that legendary to ignore bearhug and pinned in that big 6" bubble. I think a 2-2 game would be super doable with just running box 2.
  23. Fishermen’s Minor Guild – What are your hopes and dreams?

    If we get an underwater basket weavers guild my life will be complete.
  24. Fishermen’s Minor Guild – What are your hopes and dreams?

    Watch 15 seconds of shots featuring Raiders fans. It is pure ridiculousness. A lot of American Football fans are pretty mild but the ones who are loud and irritating are some the of most loud and irritating on the planet. I live in Nebraska where there is nothing to do but be a goon about college football (I like it but I'm sane.) I have a buddy that gets himself so worked up over just watching a game on television we cease to be friends on game day. If Stalin and Hitler cultivated a baby and that baby had a baby with the cultivated offspring of Mao and Trump and that 3rd generation offspring was raised by wolves and then later the Klan, it would still be easier to watch Nebraska lose a football game with that individual than with this guy I'm friends with. Back on topic. Maybe Rope Makers (or whatever fancy made up word for that they use across the pond)? Could see snared coming to the fishermen. Maybe some kind of goofy clothes line move that can be used by drawing line of sight to another friendly model and knocking down models between them as the active model moves. Going another way with the pirate theory (now that we know the minor guilds don't necessarily have to be guilds ala the Church) what if the minor guild is the Navy of the Free Cities? Perhaps they enlist the aid of Corsair's band of pirates to combat the new scourge of the sea Rageheart? Pirates vs Pirates. As a bargaining token the Fishermen get to enlist players from the Royal Navy's mob soccer team.
