  1. Hub Ball 3 - Edinburgh - 14th January 2018

    Good day today. Thanks to all who played. Final results up on longshanks http://longshanks.org/events/?event=648 1st Fraser McFeteridge Fish 2nd Steve Douglas Hunters 3rd Mark Watson Blacksmiths Best painted and best goal Iain Torrance Butchers
  2. G.B. Scrum: Android / Web App

    Noticed bonesaws playbook is missing momentous results towards the end in both the ratcatchers and morts versions.
  3. Tournament Report

    Thanks for writing the report. Butchers are a trickier team to play than most think. Very vulnerable to lots of things, conditions, counter attacks, even raw damage so you usually need to be certain before you commit. Keep trying with Boiler. He's a hidden gem in the Guild, Swift Stance and Marked Target are crazy useful character plays. Don't always think you need the dog to be in as well, mom 2 on 2 hits is a great result when you factor in the Ox aura or the fact you are setting up Fillet or Meathook.
  4. When do vGraves & Vileswarm ever see play?

    Vileswarm isn't that bad. Charging for 1 with handy pushes and a Rabid Animal. I quite like having it in some quite niche lists usually with free chargers.
  5. Morticians 10

    I think Bonesaw is the one to remove there. While hes not awful Mist is generally more reliable as a striker. There is a case for getting used to playing him as Ratcatchers aren't far away and Mist will soon not be an option. You tend to need only one out and out striker as Morts captains can act as pseudo-strikers in their own right. Completely disagree on Ghast, he is gold in some matches. 2" reach and easy access to KD in a guild that doesn't have it widely available is good. His traits are great into some matches, Blacksmiths in particular don't care much for his Fear. I'd miss Scalpel from your list but she doesn't suit everyone's playstyle.

  10. Hub Ball 3 - Edinburgh - 14th January 2018

    New organised play document up: https://static1.squarespace.com/static/56728f72a128e6b1e548ec55/t/5a33ae6a085229e36d9ed8ee/1513336429384/GB-S3-RegionalCup-11.pdf Gaming wise the biggest change is the Kick Off / Captain selection order. We will be still requiring painted models as it just looks better. The tournament is in a game shop and its always best to present the game in the best possible manner. Any newer players wanting to join in, we will try our best to loan out painted teams if you think you may struggle to get things finished in time.
  11. NEW OPD (15.12.17)

    Had people asking elsewhere. Both Farmers boxes, both Blacksmiths boxes and Lucky are all tournament legal. Everything still needs to be painted though.

    Not good enough, try again.

  15. what I truly feel Brewers need

    There were several guilds not represented at Worlds so hardly a good indicator. US nationals is just one tournament. Looking at Longshanks Brewers seem to have a pretty average play rate so it may be an anomaly that they were poorly represented. Looking at the players scores given for the LCQ, both win/loss rates are slightly positive for both captains that doesn't really reflect the need for a change. In fact Hunters also had a low selection rate at LCQ then went on to do very well. Individual metas and the fickle nature of players probably have a greater impact that actual team strength. I wouldn't be surprised if the Brewers being in the starter box has a small negative impact in the overall stats. Masons are also below the 50% mark but are perceived as one of the best guilds. I do agree that Stave and Vet. Spigot (potentially even the Dog) need looked at as their selection rate appears to be poor. Esters doesn't need "fixing" I think the captains review by the last round of nerfs/boosts agreed with that. She is extremely formidable in capable hands. I find her a much better captain than Tapper as she provides buffs and a less straightforward threat. She is certainly not in the category of superstar captain but she was never intended to be, without a doubt she is a stellar support piece for the rest of the team.
