    Stripping Paint?

    Hands down the best stuff for stripping paint off metal miniatures. Much less toxic or smelly than the other methods posted and really efficient. Can generally take paint off in less than an hour. http://www.biostrip.co.uk/biostrip-20-paint-stripper-500ml-tub.html

  7. Its all about piece trading in this sort of situation. As the Brewers player you could throw in the cat into someone do some damage then either they move into position to kill the cat (potentially putting a model into a bad position) or leave it. You can drag the cat out with Get Over Here from Friday potentially mitigating counter damage and be up momentum to press later in the turn/next turn. There isn't really such a thing as a Mexican Stand Off in guild ball, you just need to think your way around it. Whoever has the ball is at a big advantage for threat distances if their opponent is sitting off. Even super high end players against each other in a well matched game will struggle not to see opportunities/mistakes by their opponents.

    Captain pairings and ponderings

    Hes just a great deterrent for models coming in due to the lack of dodges. Good at protecting the squishier set up pieces like Meathook and Ox. Don't get a huge amount of use with Groundpound but its a handy round ender. 5+ shots is a bonus not something I take him for against them as Friday and Mash are generally rolling 4 dice minimum.

    Captain pairings and ponderings

    Absolutely don't agree that Fillet is better into Burnish. With a >> on 2 hits, re-inforced plating and reduction he is the last master I want to see in that matchup for Fillet. Ferrite is also pretty horrible for Fillet. I generally prefer Ox as the Legendary turn if popped at the right point is very scary for them, clumped up models and the damage bonus is generally pretty effective. Alchemists - Generally Fillet for the threat range Blacksmiths - Noted above Brewers - Preferably Ox as Fillet has a tough time into Esters. Tenderiser is gold against them too because of the lack of dodges. Butchers - Played the mirror quite a few times. It really depends if I kick or receive. 100% fillet for kicking, but Ox receives the ball quite well Engineers - Probably Fillet again, for the high defence model. Ox isn't bad into them though. Farmers - Not quite found a team I'm happy with yet. Fishermen - Either. Usually seeing Corsair which Ox doesn't mind too much if you can stop his drag (usually with the pup) Hunters - Fillet probably, again for high defence and forcing Theron to shut her down. Masons - Generally Ox as Fillet struggles into the Brick/Marbles bubble a bit more. Morticians - Fillet due to the fragile models that you can isolate and strange momentum generation mechanics. Plus what Ben said about BPM. Ratcatchers - Ox probably. Fillet won't like the disease condition I dont think. Union - Hard to call because of the big differences in captains. Ox is always good though since he doesn't need loaded up in the same way.

    Vet Graves Speculation Thread

    He's always been the mascot guy, in the way that most mascots are about as useful as him (some significantly moreso; Mother and Buckwheat esp).

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
