  1. Where would this game be without my boy Alex Botts?
  2. Will GB die because of the Minor Guilds

    Classic Fox News title.
  3. Selling: Blacksmiths

    Scoping interest on these. I really enjoyed painting them but am trying to liquidate a few things. Includes both boxes. One of the ball markers and one goal not painted though. My first attempt at non-metallic metals. Came out pretty well I think. Pictures here: SOLD to an individual who truly knows value when they see it.
  4. Organized Play Update

    So are they competitive, or are they not competitive and need a +1 to the roll to be competitive? I'm confused by the blog post. The message until this blog post was consistently "yeah they have less models (ie. the same number of models @Slothrop needed to win Worlds) but when it comes down to 6v6, they are as competitive as any". Now the message is "They aren't as competitive so they need a leg up via this +1 to roll / +1 card". Surely this wasn't playtested as it would require a LOT of data points to draw a plausible conclusion. Or maybe it's just an apology for Bonesaw. Essentially it feels like a pre-emptive response to people whining about "less models in the roster = worse than other teams". Instead, we have a new and exciting type of whining, like this post. You can't stop the internet beast!
  5. His dilemma mechanic is you can choose whether to be mildly infuriated or mildly incensed.
  6. I see you don't have any Farmers in your meta. You should talk to this guy: http://longshanks.org/players/?player=1364 He can win with everything against anything, as long as it's not against Thresher. See his latest tournament run with Butchers, probably using the same 6 models every round 'cause he thought the sculpts were pretty. The hero we need in these turbulent times.
  7. G.B. Scrum: Android / Web App

    I've come across an issue whereas the app becomes VERY sluggish, to the point where menus stop opening, if I add too many players to the roster (more than 6). I have fixed it so far by uninstalling/reinstalling which wipes the roster.
  8. G.B. Scrum: Android / Web App

    Anvil has momentous and KD << on his playbook Striker of the year.
  9. Me personally, I play it badly, like everything else. More useful info: - Charges humans for 1 INF, and a 3 long playbook. Not uncommon to wrap. - Has momentous >> on 2 hits. Combined with the aforementioned wrap, you can push people off the pitch if they aren't careful. - Has rabid animal on 3 hits. Strong debuff if a player hasn't activated yet. The above more or less means that you get good value out of 1 INF. - Blows up when he dies. Good against low mobility/scrum teams, sometimes forces choices. The main thing to remember is that Graves2 doesn't need Vileswarm and Vileswarm doesn't need Graves2. The back of Graves2's card is pretty situational and not at all necessary for Vileswarm to do everything it does. Disclaimer: none of this says Dirge is not worth taking either.
  10. You'd have to ask @PaW, he loves explaining things at length. One of the strengths of the team is being able to reposition enemy models with almost any activation. I wouldn't say it's "better" than any other Morts team but it does the job. Graves2 brings good set up that is overlooked as people are blinded by Tooled Up on Graves1. Pro Tip: The back of Graves2's card is mostly irrelevant. Vileswarm just gets you good value for 1 INF due to cheap charges and decent playbook.
  11. GB resolution for –18?

    We got you covered boy
  12. When you want to go 5-1 at a big UK tournament but still lose to T H E R E S H E R: That's Scalpel, Vileswarm, Graves2, Ghast, Cosset, Mist every game btw.
  13. Idea for Thresher Change

    I think it's both. Much like Season 2 Obulus or Season 3 Midas, the Thresher Dream Team is a mix of several different things that work really well together and result in a puzzlebox of scything death. You could of course ask the players have have played with and against it, or listen to the HOURS of Strictly the Worst that basically read like a love/hate poem to Thresher Your forgot the 2018 British Championship Qualifier at Steamcon UK, where Henry Kay followed his previous day's exploits by threshering the field to the tune of a cool 5-game winning streak, never letting his opponents score more than 5 pts.
  14. Steamcon USA Keynote

    I was agreeing with you in more detail. We're a team!
  15. Steamcon USA Keynote

    My understanding is that SFG had no plans to stream the Q&A session (which became a keynote) at Steamcon US. Strictly the Worst was not planning to stream it either, but adapted their limited equipment for it on very short notice so at least we got something rather than nothing. It wasn't too bad to follow when paired with the live updates on social media with better resolution photos.
