    S4 Spoiler for Smoke and Vitriol

    It is the character play infused, except it auto hits and can target more then one enemy. In Magical Christmas Land, she can hop into the middle of a scrum using her smoke bomb and cloud jumper, hit herself twice with Chemical Breeze hitting all 6 opposing models with both conditions, legendary, reap 6 momentum, then all opposing models take 3 from fire and poison. Three influence. Of course, for that to happen, Smoke has to go last for turn, and you will pay for it if you don't go first next turn, but you did just get 6 momentum. So, go first, smoke bomb/cloud jump out, infuse twice, and jog or sprint away. Or don't run and get some momentum. Smoke damage is only diceless on her legendary. And Vitriol, with one momentum, 3 influence, and not engaged but with an enemy in 4 inches: Heroic. Take fire off of Enemy, free charge ball carrier. If you wrap, momentous tackle and momentous 2 inch dodge. Clone, Shoot ball. Again, Magical Christmas Land, but not unbelievable. And if you need to bounce off of someone to get to the ball carrier, >< on 2, and clone on 3 (if they counter), both momentous. The big thing is, she can charge for either one momentum or free with not a difficult setup for alchemists to create.

    Falconers Guild changes for S4

    They do say in the article that Ikaros was the only Falconer to change. Now, since Egret is a Hunter, not a Falconer, it is still possible that she changes, but Mataagi and Minerva are staying as they are.

    Been away for too long, what have I missed?

    I'm pretty sure it's now an actor, and that the Hat wouldn't have abandoned him until he was actually dead. Although I think the actor is miffed that he has to pretend he rose from the dead.

    Veteran Fangtooth

    It's only for 3 attacks at most. It's not that bad. If Broken Ties wasn't there, yeah, new Thresher Farmers.

    Falconers Delayed until 3rd Aug

    The crew decided to go straight to GenCon, which, not being near a large body of water with ocean access, has made things . . . complicated.

    Ratcatchers Launch Event With Butchers

    Beloved creature does not trigger on an advance. So, I would take that parting blow all day every day. Best way to get damage on the dog.

    Faithful of Solthesius in May

    I would prefer if this character play were called something else, just so it could be used by other big bruisers. Simulates a good clonk on the head stunning someone, and you could put it on there higher up the playbook with some damage to be a great clonk on the head.
  9. 2/0 furious, with 0 cost character plays. Calling it now. This is, of course, sarcasm. Unless I'm right.

    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.

    You will not be alone.

    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.

    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.

    Union in Chains initial rankings

    Last place: Union. Because Steamforged hates us and wants to take away our toys.

    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.
