  1. I came up with a way to play Blacksmiths (that includes Anvil & Sledge) that's been dominating. I can outfight Butchers & Brewers with this tempo style, easy. We talk about it in our latest podcast. Navigators cards are discussed for the first portion but at the 56:00 minute mark I go into my list, theory behind it and lineup. http://midwestwargaming.com/podcast/the-pitch-ep-18/

    Blacksmith overview

    Everything from fluff to players, Chad Hufkins wrote an extensive faction primer on the guild worth reading. http://midwestwargaming.com/who-will-shed-their-role-of-apprentice-bear-the-mantle-of-master/?fbclid=IwAR1zF43Rrw6VKG7h5YYuL-AbUvakpSlWk0s8D4ZDvGY9UcrCC40J2E__W3E

    S4 Order article

    Alex Vian is a member of the SFG media group and has been testing and playing Order for a while. Here are his hot takes and experienced views on The Order https://midwestwargaming.podbean.com/e/episode-21-season-4-were-not-exclusive-but-we-are-explicit/
  4. Hey all.. I'm thinking of abandoning my Butchers for the Ratcatchers. I'm in love with how many buffs this minor guild has had so I've been testing them for a bit and decided to write an article on my hot takes. http://midwestwargaming.com/season-4-ratcatchers-review/
  5. You guys remember how we beat the snot out of the Fish and ripped Vet Gutter from them? Well let's beat the snot out of every Guild and rip the best model from under their noses. I think we've got two tactics we can take with this draft. a.) Shore up our weaknesses, take a striker and have a more well rounded team. or b.) Enhance our strengths and take another killy model so that we Butchers never lose a scrum again. I'm fine with either, but let's all figure it out soon that we don't sleep on the job and get stuck with the last pick of the draft.

    S4 Fishermen Article

    Season 4 has just started but Alex Vian has been testing the new fish for a while and has an article written up sharing his experiences, wisdom and hot opinions. http://midwestwargaming.com/below-the-thunders-of-the-upper-deep-fishermens-guild-in-season-4/
  7. http://midwestwargaming.com/the-new-age-of-science-season-4-alchemists/ A lot of S4 discussions currently, I thought I'd share one more for you to chew on. Afterall, science chemistry is about repeating experiments and testing multiple variables, so, enjoy one more take on your new and improved guild. This article is written with actual games played, not just hot takes.
  8. Back for another S4 article is Mike White's take on Season 4. Mike has had multiple Season 4 games with the Brewers so this article is more than just hot takes. http://midwestwargaming.com/explosive-brew-season-4-brewers-what-else-could-go-wrong-for-stave/

    Second Wind Chicago 64 Man Tournament.

    43 peeps. No Chance Lance better be 44, reminded him again tonight.
  13. Hey all, unlike me who faction hops all the time my brother has been a tried and true Brewer since S2. He wrote up a juicy article explaining the state of Brewers in S3 and giving some convincing arguments about why Amber shouldn't be your pick, as well as giving you some thoughts on who would be a good pick. http://midwestwargaming.com/explosive-brew-brewers-free-cities-draft-and-why-amber-shouldnt-be-your-first-pick/

  16. In this special Guest-isode, Dan & Lance bring on Michael Klein, cohost of Anatomical Precision and we talk about all the Season 4 models previewed to date: Plowman, Anvil + Sledge, Granite, Salvo & Snakeskin. Royalty-Free Music in this episode was used by Incomputech.com. http://midwestwargaming.com/podcast/the-pitch-ep-19/
  17. Appreciate the kind words; stuff like that means a lot. Lance and I also enjoyed the guest-isode quite a bit and decided to do another guest-isode sooner rather than later. It might not be our NEXT episode, but it will be our NEXT NEXT episode....Pat Van Value. ALSO! if you guys enjoy our content PLEASE please rate us and leave a comment on iTunes. It helps us pop up in the feed. Also, I want to make sure The Pitch always pops up before Anatomical Precision. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-pitch-guild-ball-podcast/id1132859010?mt=2

    Season 4 Salvo

    Celery, you were quoted on The Pitch when we talk about Salvo https://midwestwargaming.podbean.com/e/episode-19-frenemies/
  19. When I play smiths I almost always kick off because we have so meany models that can extend our threat ranges that we have plenty of T1 aggressive kickoff strategies. I've yet to kick off into Corsair though and just thinking about it is a difficult problem. Corsair likes to gobble up 4/1 models. Do we do something cheeky and kick off with a beefier master or kick off with tough hide Iron instead? Looking for thoughts from people who've played this.

    Tempo-Smiths. A new way to play Blacksmiths

    I still used Ferrite my captain choice, but mostly for her turn 1 legendary. My style is about pulling out all the stops and going all-in on turn one. It doesn't work into a few matchups, Corsair being one so its awesome that you shared that info that someone else is rotating captains and finding success. I really want to try making Anvil my captain into fish so now I'm more excited to give it a go.

    Second Wind Chicago 64 Man Tournament.

    Ticket Purchased. Let's go people, 4 months notice, this isn't the time for planning its the time for purchasing. Think about the details later. Besides, do you civic duty and help me topple the Chicago regime. With our powers combined we can eat all the deep dish and defeat all the Chicagoans on their home turf.
  23. Brilliant Starlight. Thank you!
