    @Raketkanon Yep - sorry about that. It's some kind of server error that I haven't had time to fix. They should be back up pretty soon, though.

    Comparisons to RL Nations

    Figo is Italy, Cestellya is Spain, etc. The GB world is pretty much a light re-skinning of the real world and is especially close to actual Europe.

    Terrain base size

    You’re supposed to have 4 to 6 pieces of pitch furniture for a regular game. For 4 pieces, at least 2 should be obstructions. For 5 or 6 pieces, at least 3 should be obstructions. The remaining pieces can be any combination of obstructions, fast ground, rough ground, up to one barrier, and up to one forest. It’s tooting my own horn a bit, but the Pitch Planner is almost never wrong. I’d recommend that people use it if they have any confusion about terrain or ground rules.

    Terrain base size

    I'm really enjoying your terms - "pitch entities" and "pitch furniture"

    Terrain base size

    This is not true, despite the perhaps confusing wording. From a member of the Lawyer's Guild: (@MilitaryCoo I believe?)
  6. Was just going to say this, so thanks. "Variety" can be zero and still be deemed acceptable.
  7. What in the rules says that a metal team painted that way isn't allowed? "Metal models must be completely painted and based. This means that every metal model, including its base, must be painted with an acceptable variety of colour and shading." To me, that sounds like whatever you feel like allowing is precisely what's allowed.

    Model distribution needs to change

    I have two main issues with these multi-guild boxes; On of the major points of going from single-model to box-set sales was to make every product playable out of the box. These boxes fly in the face of that goal completely. If a new player goes to a store and sees a bunch of team boxes, they're going to be pretty upset when they go home and realize that the one they picked is actually one model each for six different teams. Some will say that the LGS owner should help them not pick the wrong box, but good luck finding an LGS owner that happens to know that much about this single specific product line. This is, and I mean this as politely as possible, a giant thumbing of the nose at people that don't buy every single thing SFG sells. It's been clear for a while that they want to encourage people to buy multiple teams, but these new boxes are a whole new level. Players are now actively punished for playing fewer teams (by having to buy excess product or work harder to find the pieces they actually want on the secondary market). What if my two teams were Butchers and Masons - I'm just double-hosed by this new set? And the idea that the number of SKUs needs to be reduced ... What? Every LGS I frequent still has Guild Ball blisters for sale and I'm not aware that any of them have complained about the space the game takes up. Even with a full complement of blisters, GB required far less space than most miniatures games and vastly less than the MtG singles counters that every LGS in the world has.
  9. Hmm that seems ... oddly chosen. Also, that cardboard bleed icon is terrible. "Oh no, I've gotten the smudge condition!" Do you have a picture of the Snared tokens from the punch-out set? I'm curious how they did those, especially since the Disease conditions are now apparently also green.

    Stats on the Longshanks

    @MilitaryCoo and @ForestRambo - thanks, guys @irondesk if you have any questions in the future, feel free to ask around or message me directly, but I'd also recommend taking a look at the information page. It has answers to a lot of the common questions that come up.

    Will GB die because of the Minor Guilds

    My solution idea for the crossover models is simple; Put all four crossovers for a given major/minor guild pair into a box and sell them as a set as alternate sculpts. This gives the person who already owns either the major *or* the minor guild players some value in the pack - two new players and two alternate sculpts for players they already have. Oh, and if they decide they want the full other guild down the road? They're still not getting any duplicates. I think everything would be much smoother if they bit the bullet and had four SKUs for each major/minor guild pair - two major guild boxes, a minor guild box, and a crossover player box.
  12. I have a Farmers 1 (Grange) box that I'm looking to get rid of. Where are you located?

    What do you look for in a youtube channel??

    I'd love to see a channel that was like a Guild Ball Wayne's World. In all seriousness, though, a variety-show format could be cool. Do different things, have named segments, get guests, etc. And actually have it filmed like a talk show or like a news channel morning show.

    Organized Play Update

    Against Brewers? Kill Spigot twice and score once each with Brisket and Fillet. Against Farmers? Same plan, basically. Try to get as many goals as possible. Don't forget that Fillet is a Striker with a decent kick stat and and perhaps the easiest tackle in the game (and it's even momentous). She can drop Blood Rain Pain Circle, get extra charge distance and/or free playbook dodges, grab the ball, and shoot all with her six INF. If you give her Swift Stance (as you should), you don't really even need to worry about a counterattack from most enemies.

    Guild ball era??

    Based on technology and social structure, it's an amalgamation of the time periods from the Renaissance through the Victorian period.
