  1. New PVC Teams

    Engineers were partly designed by a high level KS backer if I remember right, so they may have wanted to run any updated sculpts by them first as a courtesy (no idea if that’s the case, but it’s possible). That might make them one of the later guilds sadly. I suspect the decision has already been made for practical reasons, but that definitely doesn’t mean people shouldn’t mention which guilds they would get on plastic if not the fish - after all, SFG can see the levels of demand that way Me, I’d probably get... well, most of them in the end. I like the plastics, and they look to be much less dense (as in “less pouches and other things attached”), so the models lines are cleaner and my brushes get more freedom. There are a few sculpts I can’t face because of the amount of bitty stuff I’d have to paint once I’d done the interesting bits (That’s why busts are brilliant to paint - don’t have to bother with belts, pouches, feet, all those tedious bits below the waist ) Maybe not the morticians, if I’ve gotten most of them painted by then.
  2. That’s actually not a bad photo, no bonus points for you (though I will say, photography is something we keep in mind while judging, since it’s such a pain!) Theyre looking good, that denim blue you’ve got is lovely. Now go paint some snow
  3. The bailiffs guild? Each turn they can take a play off an alchemist model and keep it?
  4. Game too Swingy?

    I find that surprising, as I’ve experienced far more one sided hosings in WMH than guild ball Feats, mini feats, and the lack of alternating activations means I’ve often been blocked from even properly playing, never mind actually having a chance of winning! Granted I suck at the game, but I suck at guild ball too and at least here I get my dead models back and can make a passable effort to bloody the other teams’ noses
  5. Limited Edition Model List

    There is indeed a trading section, and it’s also worth keeping an eye on the SFG store - at holiday events they sometimes open up previous limited edition sculpts for purchase again.
  6. Yeah, had a quick reshuffle - didn’t want the great content people were creating to get pushed down the page by random discussion, so moved a few bits about
  7. What about a "Creator" sub?

    @ADG the community event archive is for things like union in chains, though I do plan to move the challenges into their own archive eventually
  8. @S_A_T_S yeah, the points you make are entirely valid and logical. I just couldn’t resist a casual laugh at GW’s regularly inflating game sizes You’re right though, SFG will have thought about it and have reasons for their choices - I don’t think they would plan to shut new players out, but I can’t say I know why they’d go to 12 man on the fish - though with minor guilds coming out, a lot of their production and new product resources will already be spoken for. Maybe this is the only way it can happen while there’s still new stuff coming out, as they can’t take resources and schedule slots from the new releases to take a punt on a resculpt? Of course, regardless of the reasons, it’s important to me that people can voice their concerns on here, so while I always advocate caution when there’s not much info to go on (I don’t like climbing off the fence until I can see what I’m stepping in!), discussing it is a good thing - more info for SFG to make decisions with
  9. To try the game out in a very basic form, sure. But not to actually play it properly I’m sure SFG have reasons for looking at a single large box. They may not be ones I know, but they’re not going to spend that massive quantity of money on a whim. They want to stay in business after all! That said, I have my own concerns about a 12 model box. In a way, it actually feels kind of weird to potentially have a single purchase and be done. Plus the six model sets are good for impulse buys. I don’t think we know enough yet to worry too much, but it’s good to see people debating the options and SFG will be able to get a feel for how things could play out.
  10. Traits

    Oh, I reckon I have a spare bit of time today! Which also means I've failed to find some of the new farmer traits on the list... It's going to get longer
  11. Indeed - for extra clarity, clicking the "yes! let me have them!" button counts as you saying you'd want to buy them, the only further question appears to be "would you be replacing models you already own or buying into a new guild?". If you don't want the fish in plastic, don't click the button
  12. Are we all plastic now?

    I can’t remember the plastic Ghast... is it lurking online somewhere? edit: wait... a vague memory surfaces of it matching the original art. That one? anyway, it seems that it’s been set up so answering the survey is automatically a “yes I will buy them” - the button says that basically, the only further question is “will you buy them on top of an already owned fish team, or expand into the guild?”
  13. Winter Painting Contest

    Hardest part is coming up with a plan! Once that’s out the way, it’s just paint by numbers
  14. Moved over to rules clarifications
  15. Winter Painting Contest

    That’s a good blog link there @S_A_T_S How are people finding it so far?
