  1. 2/0 furious, with 0 cost character plays. Calling it now. This is, of course, sarcasm. Unless I'm right.
  2. New Player takes to the Field

    We Chicagoan's and Chicago Suburbanites will be at SteamCon in numbers, but, if you don't find us, we mostly arrange things in our Facebook Group. The following link or searching for "Chicagoland Guild Ball" will get you where you need to go. https://www.facebook.com/groups/145805579110170/ We usually meet on Mondays at the Oak Park Gaming Goat, or Grognard Games on Tuesdays. There was a group in the Northern Suburbs, but I'm not sure how much Guild Ball is being played up there anymore.
  3. SteamCon US. Let's hang out.

    You will not be alone.
  4. Wake up and smell the chains!

    The Union currently has 17 models. Three Captains, two mascots, and 12 players. The only spot left for a third box is the mascot. Now, that doesn't mean we won't get a Church team, possibly with the Solthecian Union players becoming duel guild in season 4, and a vet Mist in that situation, but, I'm not betting on a vet Mist in Union.
  5. Wake up and smell the chains!

    I actually agree with this, with one caveat. A mascot that works with Brisket, so that there can be 3 full 6 man boxes for the Union. I'm also guessing that these vet players going to other guilds will be a starting point for a new 6 man box for the winning guilds, with the other guilds getting new players to fill a 3rd box for them. And then we'll see no new models for any of those guilds for a long time, with Steamforged making more guilds to keep the revenue stream going.
  6. Union in Chains initial rankings

    Last place: Union. Because Steamforged hates us and wants to take away our toys.
  7. How soon was your first tournament

    My first tournament game was my third or fourth game. I had played Warmachine for awhile, so I felt comfortable in a tournament setting, and I also wasn't concerned about my results. In fact, I assumed I was going to get stomped all day. Went 1-3, and learned quite a bit. Which, for your first outing, is all you should worry about.
  8. Chicago to Austin is just under $250. I know, because I booked yesterday. At least, if you leave out of O'hare. Which for me, living less then a mile away from O'hare, is really the only choice. Most relevant bit for @RedSam though is, there is a Chicago based room you could split.
  9. 'Summer's Harvest' - Bloomington, IL July 29th

    <drops to knees> Nooooooooooooooo!!!
  10. Flask could be a part of this too, but he's not as bad as those two.
  11. Except @VanV. He has no idea what you're talking about.
  12. I'm going to go ahead and point out that the previous comment was a Chicago guy saying it was cool to just sit back and be social. But yeah, most of us in Chicago are ruthless tournament demons. But if you catch us outside of the game, we're usually pretty cool people to socialize with.
  13. While the Iron is hot!

    I'm sure a concentrated assault will bring Anvil down, but it'd probably be easier to find a way to hit the apprentices like Sledge then try to remove this guy.
  14. Minx vs Decimate

    Going to have to agree with Akaleth for the most part, with a few caveats. It does depend on what captain you're running. Brisk3t and Blackheart are both looking for the better ball handling (On My Mark or I'm Open), while vRage would prefer the furious charge and battery. Decimate can do quite a bit of damage under Bloody Coin or My Gang, as long as you have the influence. When I've used Decimate with vRage, she's stayed just out of the action until the round after Harry or Gutter go down, then get's their influence to keep the pain train a runnin'. Of course, the same can be done with Minx. I've also had some problems with Minx being controlled by a 2 in melee model engaging her. So, they fill slightly different roles IMO, but, you can cut one to keep the other, you just have to decide what priority you want to have.
