  1. Mike “the dog” Klein, last month you smashed whiskey and southern dreams by taking down the 50 person Old Jakes Howzat in South Carolina. And then just this past weekend you flew down from New York and carpetbagged the 63 person Spring Fling in Virginia. .... http://midwestwargaming.com/?p=4010&preview=true
  2. There were two big tournaments at Adepticon, the regionals and the Adepticon Championship. Alex Botts won the regionals and Zach won the Adepticon Championship and in doing so he did end up beating Botts and taking ownership of the Longshanks badge, the Bearer of the Torch. http://midwestwargaming.com/interview-adepticon-champion-zach-grey/
  3. Come one, come all to the Geek City March Madness tournament for Guild Ball. It's not going to be bracketed like March Madness, but it's March, and that's when the madness happens, right? Registration at 10, clocks start at 11am. $10.00 entry. Prizes TBD. Think you have what it takes to be the BPI? Bring it. Dan & Lance from The Pitch will be there and we are easy pickings. https://www.facebook.com/events/140144753323258/
  4. Dan and Lance start off episode 11 with a discussion on the Ratcatchers with guest host Pete Kain from the podcast Rage Quit Wire. After we finish oozing about the new disease-ridden guild we segway over into a discussion about every guild and thier auto-include models. https://midwestwargaming.podbean.com/e/episode-11-rats-and-auto-includes-with-rage-quit-wire/
  5. -shout out for a new GB Blog- Hey guys! We’re Johnny Pastrami and “Spartacus” Christiansen, AKA Two Guys and a Pitch! We’re a brand new Guild Ball blog based in northeastern Wisconsin.

  7. Getting the most "VanValue" out of your list

    No problem. It was originally going to be just an article about my janky-brew but after talking to Pat I figured sharing that discussion would be more valuable a resource
  8. In this latest Guild Ball article from Midwestwargaming we discuss one newbies dream of beating Thresher with some janky Brewers tech and one Master's cautious words of wisdom. http://midwestwargaming.com/explosive-brew-getting-vanvalue-list/ — Pat "VanValue" Van Valzah
  9. http://midwestwargaming.com/podcast/pitch-ep-9/ Dan and Lance had a slow news week so we instead decided to do another list. This time Lance ranks the top 10 ball fondlers in the game and then they both answer listener questions. Also, there is currently a Tee Spring campaign going on for Midwestwargaming t-shirts so buy one. https://teespring.com/new-midwestwargaming#pid=46&cid=2753&sid=front
  10. Winter Painting Contest

    Any ETA on when winners will be announced?
  11. Building bigger bases

    super happy you posted this. thank you very much
  12. Public service announcement. I've seen a couple podcast related posts in the last 24 hours with people either having difficulty finding a particular GB podcast or people asking if non-active GB podcasts were any good. Both of these issues stem from iTunes' search feature hiding acting GB podcasts and featuring non-active GB podcasts. Here are the iTunes links to every active Guild Ball podcast. In order for them to be featured when people search "Guild Ball" they need reviews from you. Please click the links and review each of these podcasts. It will take 5 minutes of your time but it will indefinitely help new people see how active our community is by featuring active podcasts.

  13. Complete list of all GB podcasts

    The rookie has been added and I left a review. thanks
  14. Hello, my name is dan, I like to podcast and blog. That was my icebreaker. And this is my other icebreaker.
  15. For our first episode of 2018 Lance and Dan break from thier normal news-reporting habits and get into the nitty gritty of Blacksmiths. Lance has been known to dabble in these waters and Dan has lost to his brother's Blacksmiths before so they are both experts. Come listen to thier expert opinons and they'll tell you why the midwest is right and why the UK is wrong. Oh, and if you like this podcast please take a moment to leave a review on iTunes, it really helps a lot with visibility. http://midwestwargaming.com/podcast/pitch-ep-8/
  16. Greetings all! This is Lance from the (I’m sure, soon to be) highly famous Guild Ball podcast, The Pitch What? No one gives a damn? Ok, cool… never mind then. I have been tasked to walk those interested in playing the newest team in the Empire of the Free Cities through the basics of opening the box and taking the starting six out for a spin. My hope is that this guide will help you avoid any confusion in your first attempt at playing this very unique team, as well as help you come to your own conclusions as to how to make them click for you in the first few play-throughs. The following is merely “suggestions” of how to begin thinking of each model and, of course, your mileage may vary. With all of those caveats let's get started: http://midwestwargaming.com/beginners-guide-blacksmiths/
  17. 4-2 SteamCon US recap

    At SteamCon US there was an awesome cosplayer who captured the image of Esters. My brother didn't cosplay but anyone who played against this loud drunk will definitely say that he captured the spirit of the Brewers. Now that he's sobered up Mike has written his recap. http://midwestwargaming.com/steamcon-usa-lcq-recap-brewers/
  18. As per usual, Dan and Lance start off by going over some latest SFG news items (resin reboxing, painting contest, ATC cancelled, new regional tournament struction). Then to switch it up a bit Lance and Dan do some shout-outs. Lance has been loving Guild Ball Scrum app and Dan really appreciates Tectonic Craft Studios. Next, Lance talks about his recent tournament experience at Geek City in North Liberty, IA and finally Dan & Lance talk more about some goals for 2018. http://midwestwargaming.com/podcast/pitch-ep-7/
  19. New PVC Teams

    There seems to be this rumor spreading that if these PVC teams go intro production it will delay or disrupt the release schedule of the minor guilds. I think people are making "educated guesses" that juggling two things is harder than focusing on one but until I hear SFG confirm this it's hard for me to believe. Anyone with more insights care to comment?
  20. Guild Ball Tournament. Swiss with a cut if enough people show up. Each round is 90mins with each player getting a 45min of that 90 to do there turns using Chess Clocks. Doors open at 10am. We start soccer slaughtering oppenents at 11am. Dave the local Pundit will be running the event. Cost is $10..... Prizes based on attendance. Some of the money paid in will be going towards chess clocks. Minimum of $50 in store credit has been guaranteed to split between 1st, 2nd and 3rd Lance Becker from Muse on Minis and cohost of The Pitch will be there. * heads up on allowed models this weekend. The only thing not allowed are Models that are not released to the general public or released at the local store. The only exception to this would be Tater for Farmers Guild. So NO new Thresher's box, no Skulk and no new Blacksmiths box because no everyone has access to them* Address to Geek City Games here: https://www.mapquest.com/search/results?slug=%2Fus%2Fiowa%2Fgeek-city-357722437&query=Geek City&page=0 Also, if you travel out of state I will have a custom art print of Grey Scales to give you
  21. Des Moines Iowa, Dec 10 Sunday tournament

    probably 8-10 Iowa is a small meta but if you travel a few hours to play I'll be sure to give you a cool art print of grey scales that my wife drew

  23. Playing Butchers at LCQ

    Glad to see others had success. I went 2-4 with Ox at the LCQ. A couple close games but I did get 0-12'd by Vet Rage Still a long way for me to go.
  24. Interview with the man, the myth, the legend, Alex Botts. Everyone is talking about Thresher these days so I ask him his thoughts on the model along with some general questions about Farmers, how to get good, etc., etc. http://midwestwargaming.com/interview-2017-guild-ball-world-champion-alex-botts/
  25. Make Brewers better

    Didn't they allude that GIC was a way that they wanted to tweak Brewers? That was one of the reasons your guys' GIC cards were the strongest of the lot. If they plan on making GIC an official format than boom, you are all set.
