    A simple wish.

    As we quickly approach the end of the year, and the majority of us are celebrating some holiday or another, I wanted to just post a simple wish for all the Guild Ball bretheren around the globe. No matter what you may be celebrating, I wish for you all Peace and Love, Family and Friends, Warmth and Serenity, and Success and Great Gaming.... not just during the holiday season... but into 2019 and well beyond. The Guild Ball Community, and the wonderful folks at SFG have been a pretty big shining light for me this past year... and I look forward to all our adventures together in the new year. Cheers!

    Lawyers Guild Authority?

    What happened was... A few of us wanted some fancy symbols by our names, so we asked Mako and he said we had to perform the ritual at the shrine of Perkins with a worthy sacrifice of seasonal berries, a half kilo of brie and a small duck* (crackers were optional). After fourty hours of fasting/feasting while reciting all the guildball players' names backwards we ascended to lawyerhood. *The duck wasn't actually sacrificed and is alive and well, living in Dagenham. It does occasionally suffer from a bit of onithological PTSD though.

    Fantastic, thanks for the answer and the explanation. In an unrelated note, a song called Jamie's Duck is writing itself in my head to the tune of Stacey's Mom.

    Lawyers Guild Authority?

    Hello. The lawyers guild are for the most part fans of the game who, after a little interview process, were selected to help Steamforged with rules calls. You may have seen TheLieutanant around here - that's Bryce. We are in regular contact with Jamie and Bryce when discussing rules calls, but we do it behind the scenes. Our work is overseen by the designers, which you may have seen leading to rules calls being overturned, particularly when rules as written don't match up with the intention of the rule. With regards to being held in high regard as players, I vehemently refute that scandalous remark. I, personally, have been working very hard for many years at being a bloody terrible player of this game, as the many people who have thrashed me will attest! We are: @TheLieutenant(game designer and head lawyer), @TimW, @MilitaryCoo, @LeadDiceandBeers & @Henry We are also available on the Guildball Supporters Facebook group and the Guildball Zone Discord Channel.

    Painted RE2

    I started playing RE2 as soon as I managed to open and classify all contents. After three games, I decided that the game needed to have painted minis, so I started with the heroes and some special monsters. Here are the main characters... The G-Mutant And the zombie dogs... It was rewarding to spend some time in Leon and Claire´s jacket. I am specially proud on the final result with Claire´s... Ada, Hunk, the spiders and Birkin are on their way now

    Fishermen in Season 4

    Hi. I've been writing up some guild summaries for Season 4 teams, and the Fish are the next ones to be going up! I've tried to avoid talking about what they were like previously since that doesn't really matter now, and instead look at what they can do and how they play in the current season. Hopefully you all enjoy it / find it useful. Feel free to hit me up with any questions or suggestions. https://gutandstring.wordpress.com/2018/11/22/fishermen-in-season-4/

    Just to be clear though, for similar plays that also affect friendly players (like vKat’s Ground Pound), you can’t chose to roll for friendly players in the pulse; the only roll you could make is against the model itself (vKat), and if it gets hit then everyone in the pulse, friend or foe, is affected.

    WAVE 2 shipment issues

    Unfortunately that's the problem has been the success of it. More orders, means more production needed. More money won't solve the problem if the bottle neck is with the actual manufacture of the mini's and materials. Think of it as a sand timer, with money in the top, product at the bottom, but somewhere in the middle it's restricted hampering flow. With so many orders, the best thing is to take the time to make sure everybody gets the current set, before moving on. Otherwise you're constantly putting out fires with any issues that come up (as with anything on this scale, there will be issues), and storage is expensive if you're renting out multiple smaller units all over the world to hold the back log. Is it annoying that it's taking a few years to complete? Yes, because I want MY order as much as the next person. But I've got to be realistic and realise that there are 31,177 other customer orders to process, from all over the world. That's a lot of co-ordination and sheer volume of plastic to be made into little plastic figures. I'd be surprised if Steamforged have made all that much money on the £80/box + stretch goals as it is, without throwing more money away to get this done quicker. Because let's face it, that'd probably bankrupt them, and we'd get sweep FA, which is quite a common outcome from what I've heard about a lot of kickstarters. I've never created a kickstarter, never mind one this large, so I can't comment on how difficult it actually is to get it complete. I'd expect Steam Forged will have learned a massive lesson from this kickstarter, that they need to keep things manageable for future project, because they want repeat customers, and this delay is not helping them in that regard. If you don't want to buy another product from them, that's fine as that's your choice, and I will respect that. But please, let's keep it in perspective, they are not sending out cancer cures, they are making little plastic men for us to paint and play games with. It sucks, but we'll just need to suck it up. 👍

    Union Captain Choice

    I haven't had a chance to play that much S4 Union, but back in S3 my strategy was this: Guilds: vRage The traditionally difficult match ups like Fish was solved but silver bullet players like Snakeskin (RIP). I never found a way to beat vCinder though.

    Union Captain Choice

    Butchers: Blackheart (both are okay, BH has a better counterattack. Keep him away from Boiler though) Fishermen: Blackheart (Rage's threat range is too short) Masons: Rage (they want to group up and scrum, and Rage is happy to beat them at that game) Brewers: Blackheart (both work again, but BH puts footballing pressure on a team that doesn't hold it well, and can win even if you lose the scrum) Alchemists: Rage (Rising Anger helps a lot against all the ranged plays, he's harder for Smoke to oneround) Engineers: Rage (Rising Anger is still great against ranged damage, as above) Morticians: Blackheart (Can't afford to risk playing Rage into Scalpel which is horrible for him) Union: Whichever you're most comfortable with Hunters: Rage (Rising Anger helps against the snare effects, he can use Gutter/FT to abuse the bear and kill people) Farmers: Rage (he's harder for Thresher to oneround, they have awful defenses which makes Gutter really dangerous for them) Blacksmiths: Rage (Less likely to get one shot by an apprentice, has pushes to get them out of Sentinel, Gutter is good here again) Minor Guilds: whoever you like, leaning towards Blackheart. I've posted a couple threads in this forum talking about vRage and Union in general. Is there something in particular you find you have trouble with on vRage?

    Ah, yeah, I remember now! I was Math Mathonwy on those boards. Good to see you're still about and kicking! Guild Ball is a cool game with cool minis.

    Hello. Handy Alchemists bandwagon jumper, such as I am. 30-40 games with them in season 4. Still love them. Having played it a few times, Navigators is a fun one. They have such low health they make us look like Farmers. What they are is ridiculously fast and very good at getting round our high defences with those rerolls. I would go Smoke. Carpet them with conditions, particularly Burning, because Navigators can struggle for momentum to clear them. Venin for me is a must. He's fast and can do plenty of damage to a Navigator when he gets there. Plus they find his 4+/2 very hard to deal with when he's got Poison. I also like Vitriol here. She's a linear threat but it's a very long line. She's one of very few models that can chase down the likes of Fathom and Horizon and her momentous tackle on 1 is very useful. If the Navigators pick Azimuth, you need Crucible. Great Balls of Fire is the only way to get the ball back off the big lad without getting smacked in the face and boosting his defence through Gladiator. I've also taken Naja as a way of hiding the ball away until I've got some takeouts in the bank. Navigators are really good at snapback goals so be careful about when you score and give them the ball back.

    Precise calculations

    Yes. A Counter-Attack is an attack (so is a Charge, or a Parting Blow). Declaring a counter-Attack or a parting Blow is not the same as declaring an Attack, but both are forms of attacks. In regards to counter attacks, the S4 rulebook actually says, on page 23 (emphasis mine):
