  1. So this was my first attempt at a Guild Ball battle report. Already thinking about some more in depth narration on the next one including draft discussion prior to the game, a quick recap at the end and a display showing the score or at least updating it as points are scored. Other constructive comments very much invited and appreciated https://youtu.be/iFpc1PH5-UQ

    S4 Chisel (oChisel) lacking flavour and value?

    Listen to the Singled Out podcast where Bryce discusses the Season 4 Masons. There are reasons for those changes that ultimately are for the best. In my opinion they made the right choices based on what Bryce said and I prefer this version of Chisel.

    S4 Masons - what's your 12, what's your 6es

    My current drops are Lucky, Tower and Mallet. My Union slot is usually Snakeskin but I'm also trying Avarice & Greede as well. My 6s at the moment are: Honour, Wrecker, oChisel, Granite, Flint/oHarmony and Flex/Union. Hammer, Marbles, Brick, Vet Chisel, Granite and Vet Harmony/Flex. Currently considering dropping oHarmony for Tower to add some more beating to the Honour team.
  4. So a bunch of friends and I started a podcast. We realised we discussed Guild Ball a lot during our journeys to and from work so decided why not put that time to good use? Uploaded to YouTube at the moment whilst we explore hosting options for Podcasts. Link to YouTube

    A Ratty Swedish Adventure (1st place @ Swedish Nationals)

    Firstly congrats on the win! I have found this above to be my feelings after 8 games with Ratcatchers. My flex is Pelage or Skulk in most match ups so nice to see a top players saying the same
  6. Bases4War are reliable, fast and well priced. Based pretty much 2 entire Warmachine factions using them

    Rookie Scourge

    He looks SO good!

    Drafts

    We're not voting on stats though we're voting on flavour right? We will know some back story and a playing position so no real need to worry about the stats etc. Personally I think another dedicated striker would be good in Masons for when we lose Mist. Otherwise maybe a goal keeper?

    Drafts

    Are we ever all going to agree?

    Hammer Masons

    If it looks like granny will survive then CA Hammer's final attack to knock him down and set him up for an apprentice could work. Failing that giving him a def 3 arm 3 furnace will make him a sad panda.
  11. Scapegoat_Stephen

    10?

    Maybe it's because Bolt can go really far but none of it is dodges. So he can score if your opponent lets you by leaving a path open to their goal. Goalies make him sad Maybe I'm doing something wrong
  12. Scapegoat_Stephen

    10?

    I think we now potentially have a 9? My 10 was dropping Anvil and Sledge but Vet Cinder seems like a swap for Bolt and Farris/Anvil are both pretty similar in that I may not ever use them. I'm definitely interested to see what other people play!

    Veteran Chisel - no more speculation

    So I'm going to proxy her today into Butchers. Trying to resurrect the YouTube channel so will like have the video up in a couple of weeks once editing has happened Likely to be Hammer, Marbles, Brick , Vet Chisel, Tower, Mallet with Honour, Flint, Vet Harmony and oHarmony also in my 10. Will let people know how it goes
  14. Scapegoat_Stephen

    Veteran Chisel - no more speculation

    Mallet also has a super consistent momentous Knockdown so between all those he should have the equivalent of +4 TAC, opponent with -1 def and +1 damage. It's pretty sweet. Tower can do similar if he knocks the opponent down but Mallet has the higher damage on 5 hits base. Mallet however adds Singled Out and longer melee range.

    Veteran Chisel - no more speculation

    For me she definitely fits as a flex spot for both Captains. With Hammer if playing against a condition light team then dropping Vet Harmony for her is a good idea. That spot used to be Lucky for me but I think Vet Chisel is better (2" melee is probably the swing there). Trying to decide is it worth dropping Brick for her and taking Hammer, Wrecker, Vet Chisel, Vet Harmony, Tower and Flint. With Honour she again fills a flex slot exists (usually Mallet or oHarmony). Picking a 10 was already a challenge for Masons now it's even harder. Also 8 influence Mallet if you can get them both in the same team!

    Keeping the ball safe

    Distance is key. As is a model with a meaningful counter attack. Sadly our models with 2 inch melee aren't really where you want to put the ball.

    Help rookie Chisel get a game on this week

    I don't see a need to rebalance the rookie cards they arent meant to be some serious format. Put that design effort in elsewhere. What would be nice is to see Vet Chisel and OChisel have clearly defined roles similar to the 2 rookie versions.

    "Guilds" aren't strong or weak.

    I think instead of looking at win numbers on Longshanks you'd need more detailed info. As the OP says there are so many decision making points along the way. Who's in my 10? Why? Who's in my 6? Why? Who's in my opponents 10? Who's in my opponents 6? Did the opponents draft cause you to change yours? Player skill trumps base Guild power every time and the context of their decision making is so important. TLDR it's too complicated to look at an arbitrary stat and would require a load more data tracking as well as interviewing players to fully understand.

    Tournament? Oh... I'm not ready for that!

    She went for the Butchers Guild too so a reasonable first guild to learn with. She's enjoying rocking the mostly female Butchers team of Fillet, Princess, Meathook, Vet Gutter, either Briskets and Boiler. She's played a bunch of casual games as well as attended the Farmers2 and Ratcatchers release events. We're booked in for the Falconers event (her idea for fathers day) and a 16 player event in July. It's helps that not only do I play but my father-in-law, brother-in-law and his partner also play. Our locals are also super supportive of her playing and you can hear the fun they have when playing with her at the events so far. No she doesn't win a lot as some of the deeper strategies escape her but its the memories. She still talks about the Farmers release event where she did beat me with Princess having Fallows bonus TAC rule dealing 10 damage to Hammer on a crazy charge, gang-up situation and took him out. Turns out with +5 TAC, a charge, 3 gang ups and in Ox Legendary Princess can half kill Hammer in one attack

    Tournament? Oh... I'm not ready for that!

    I played half a dozen games back in early season 2 but then the models went away until January this year. Started a local club and been to 2 release events (with a 3rd booked in). Was unsure about attending a tourney as my daughter has picked up the game with me (she's 9 for reference) and it was her idea to go to a tourney. So we're all booked in for an event in July and she's really looking forward to it. Essentially if a nine year old wants in then clearly the rest of us should follow her example!

    Stave X Windle

    I accept the mods on GuBs reasoning for deleting the thread however I would've preferred they moderated the comments rather than the content. The picture gave me a giggle for the comedy behind it. Don't find it offensive and worried that some people are wound up so tight it does...

    Any tips for speeding up your play?

    I'm personally not too bad with a clock as I've played War machine but we have a local who is notorious for being indecisive. He knows but we found oddly he runs down his clock badly but if we give him 2 minute activations he speeds up! Definitely recommend this for learning to be quicker!

    Teach Me To Paint

    Mantic or Repear minis are probably the cheapest option for buying a batch you can practice on. As @ningu said do you have any examples of your work so we can offer advice?

    Season 4 Rookies

    Do they need refreshed cards? It's a casual silly format why not leave them as is? It's not like they need a balance pass
