  1. New Home Field!

    Who did your art? I see they don't do the whole thing but I wouldn't mind printing one up for tournament prize support. Even at full price that isn't a bad deal.
  2. NEW OPD (15.12.17)

    I think you can clear it up but just adding "upto" right before "10 models." SEMANTICS!

    Dirty son. Love it. Did you upload a pdf or is that one they normally sell?
  4. Stick with 6 player boxes, not 12 for the plastic re-release

    A KS could be super friendly to LGS. If you offer a retailer pack like they did with Dark Souls. Gives the stores that want into it a chance to get it early. What you have to remember though is that those other guilds are not even on the table yet. They might not ever be. Buy the Fishermen if you want them. Don't if you don't. Maybe they make more of them if this goes well, maybe they don't if this goes poorly. Losing sales is a non issue if the sale never existed. Releasing 9 guilds in plastic at the same time that have metal counterparts is a bad idea if you don't know your audience is going to buy them. It is bad for stores that order them hoping to sell when they turn into dead stock.
  5. Working on a new project. No news on it yet but excited to be bringing some folks into the fold.

  6. So two guys walk into a forest

    Ok so what is the deal with forests? At SCUS there were forests with removable trees which made sense to me. You move in, they get in the way, you take them out but the terrain functions as normal and effectively the trees are there for cosmetic purposes. I'm looking at this Steamforged terrain pack it explicitly states there is a forest in the pack. One assumes that the piece with the tree is the forest. Unless I am not seeing this correctly though it would appear the tree is not removable. Can there be obstructions and/or barriers within a forest? I was under the impression there could not be. If it is neither a barrier nor an obstruction what is it?
  7. Stick with 6 player boxes, not 12 for the plastic re-release

    I like some of the poses in plastic but I do very much prefer how easy metal models are to work with. I like the natural weight to them too. As staunch a supporter of the Fishermen that I am, I have not taken the survey as I think plastic will be more trouble for SF than it is worth. I'll probably get the rest of the Union, Engineers, and Alchemists in metal. I'll wait and see if we get plastic on Butchers and Morticians as I have painted Silence twice for others and he makes me want to hurt things.
  8. Stick with 6 player boxes, not 12 for the plastic re-release

    That is kind of the point though. They wouldn't want to remake a guild that doesn't have enough interest for fear of losing on that product. I would imagine they are likely going to go one at a time to make sure this venture doesn't blow up in their face. Losing your ass on 1 guild if things don't pan out sucks. Losing it on 9 at the same time would be a disaster. That's pretty pessimistic isn't it? I mean I gave a slew of reasons that they could be considering this strategy earlier in the thread. Nobody is forcing anyone to do anything. If you don't want to buy a 12 man box then don't. It is an easy solution. If you want a rereleased product in plastic then we as a community need to understand that there are likely going to need to be some compromises on the matter. To be totally honest I'm not sure why they don't kickstart the plastic remakes. They have a tradition of killing it on Kickstarter. Have a store package and a player package, include the metal LE only in the kickstarter and give us some kickstarter exclusive alt art cards. Then they can make sure they hit what they need with minimal risk and cash upfront. Then you just phase out the metal now that your plastic molds are paid for. Run them one at a time to generate a pop for each guild. The only thing I could think of is what it might do to sales of the metal 6 man boxes that are already out in LGS.
  9. Stick with 6 player boxes, not 12 for the plastic re-release

    I imagine SKUs are playing a role in this 12 man box idea. Cutting the number of SKUS in half to keep a full line seems pretty LGS friendly. One would also assume that SF is planning to sell fewer of these rereleases (not because they want to but because of demand.). Perhaps cutting down on the packaging, shipping, design time for the extra ball/goal/terrain, and the making of a mold for a 2nd ball/goal/terrain piece helps them stay profitable on something that people want but don't want as much as something they don't already own. To be clear that is just how I rationalize the idea of a 12man box. I would prefer two 6 man boxes.
  10. 2018 Canadian Nationals x 2 ... Any Details Yet?

    Getting ready to invade Canada. Look out friendliest people on earth.
  11. Musings on Veterans, New teams, and the Future

    This crossed my mind when typing the OP and my orginal thought was they don't really do stuff like that but then I started thinking about it more and that is something we have seen recently. Dark Harvest is a cross model 6 man pack. The Hearth and Buckwheat combo is also an example of this. Growth is an obvious priority but I think SF is banking on most players owning several guilds so, despite the inevitable bellyaching of some, I would say the idea of mixed pack seems as likely as anything else we stumble aimlessly speculate about.
  12. What's next for GICs?

    I respectfully disagree. I don' think there is a chance we see GICs until new plot cards are settled in but I don't think they operate in the same design space. Plot cards = random-ish/one time burns/hidden knowledge =/= Guild Identities = team patch/open knowledge/chosen It would feel like a bit of let down if we didn't get them into the main game wouldn't it? We got a pretty positive reaction out of SFG at the close of the trial and were even encouraged to keep playing with them so my spirits are still high. I'd like to see them sooner rather than later but I'd be kinda bummed if we didn't see the as part of the main game in season 4.

    It depends on what you want to accomplish. I think just swapping Seenah for one of the players in your butchers line up might feel odd since it looks very football oriented and you won't have much to keep the other guy off of Seenah being spread out. I think this depends more on opponent captain pick. I don't think I have the stomach to play the bear into Fillet since she could pretty reasonable one round Seenah. Into Ox it is still risky but if you can screen the bear with a forest or maybe Hearne, just something to keep them from piling in, it isn't a crazy pick. Butchers are smashy but 6 players on the team have less than 15 starting health which Seenah likes. Just go into the game assuming that your opponent is going to clear snare every chance they get because they ARE going to win the momentum race on you.
  14. Tuesday Night GB (TNGB)

    @Coach Z is spot on. Lotsa 1" melee models on the Butchers' line up makes those dodges very powerful. Fillet, Meathook, oBrisket, and Shank probably won't change their damage results much but if the other players have damage + a dodge or push at all it is lower in the playbook and generally with less damage. Might not get you out of a ton of melee zone but it very well could keep a player in the game longer.

    Obviously if you watched South Park's "Go God Go" episode you'd know that they were at war with the United Atheist Alliance and the Unified Atheist League. Duh
