    S4 QRF

    Is there a Season 4 reference sheet somewhere that I missed? Mostly looking for how to spend momentum. Teaching the game this afternoon and find new players often forget that they can spend momentum.
  2. I just want to say how Tooled Up is my favorite app and I really appreciate that you are still updating this. No one else tracks owned and painted miniatures and lets me easily access my opponent's roster during the game. Having the sleep toggle on the main match interface is a phone saver. When I'm taking a bunch of damage I can stop it from sleeping but then let it sleep when I'm moving miniatures on the board to save battery.

    Fisherman South Pacific Scheme

    Finally completed*. Took 5 weeks of painting. Now I have to decide if I want to finish the 12 or switch to Blacksmiths.

    Fell behind updating. Here's the rest of the team. Also, with the added team and having recently purchased the Muse on Minis Fishermen token set I needed a better way to carry all my gear. The miniatures have magenetized bases and travel in a cookie tin. Everything else goes in the Kick Off! box. This image is from before I realized I had made it 5mm too tall, hacked off the top 5mm and then used black tape to cover the mess.

    Don’t Touch The Beard 15: Corsair Vs Rage

    My favorite GB batreps. The easiest to follow and don't take forever to watch. Looking forward to this one.

    VP, MOM, Goal trackers/counters

    I use counters but am torn between them and a die. I echo Coach Z's comment about dials being too difficult for your opponent to easily read. Counters are good unless you store the spare counters close to where you mark your MOM as it's possible to mix the two. Also, make sure that the MOM markers are distinct from your Influence. I was playing in bad lighting and accidentally allocated my 2nd activation MOM as an influence marker. Dice don't have the mixing issue but can be knocked over or picked up and rolled accidentally.

    Here is Siren all finished up. Originally I've been planning on a standard grass basing scheme. I love Guild Ball because I can just flock the base and call it done. I'm starting to lean towards a sand beach base, if I can figure it out.

    Kraken is finished and Siren has begun I've painted a bit since I took this picture but haven't taken a new one of the progress. Siren is interesting as the shapes are so broken up that each colour takes almost no time to paint. I expect Siren will be one of the quickest to paint.

    Now with metal completed. It's more obvious with Kraken due to the amount of it but I'm trying to paint a blackened steel look. They probably don't have stainless and being in the sea means lots of rust so their treat their metal with an acid to prevent rust. All I have left is the straps on the spear, knife handles, socks? and painting the "fur" on the socks green as if they were made from leaves.

    Honest review of the Farmers box

    My first Guild Ball metals, not my first metals. My point is that I'm currently painting the metal miniatures and don't find them much different, in practice, than the metal when it comes to painting. It is possible to compare point for point and find places where the metal miniatures excel but during the process of painting, and afterwards, I don't find the differences to make a difference. Yes, I am only painting the models to a mid wargame level but that's the same level I paint Infinity and the metal Guild Ball miniatures. For reference: Kick Off Brewer Metal Fishermen

    Honest review of the Farmers box

    No, this is why I'm arguing against saying that good painters won't like them. Assuming the reviewer's statement that the Farmers plastics are better than the Kick Off! plastics is true. I've happily painted both guilds from the Kick Off! box and found them easy to paint. I'm currently painting my first metals from Steamforged and have had assembly issues and am annoyed that I have to deal with either slottabases or pinning feet. My only annoyance with Kick Off! was Spigot's medal, which was also hard to read on the metal model. Everyone's entitled to their opinion on what they call acceptable quality but most reviews I read are obviously biased against plastics and it bothers me that some new player may be put off by "bad model quality" when that is not the case at all. For example, the review says That’s going to be consistently worse than any standard metal model. The stitches are all over exaggerated, the detail on the feet is super soft and the seam line that runs around the collar of the model will mess with you trying to define what’s the shirt and what’s the work apron. All stitches on all Guild Ball models, metal and plastic, are over exaggerated. The metal Kraken I'm painting has a 2 inch thick patch on his pants held in place by 8 stitches using climbing rope as thread. Seam lines are endemic to metal and plastic miniatures. The toes... ok, the toes are soft. The Kick Off toes were soft. No, this is why I'm arguing against saying that good painters won't like them.

    Here I go again. Was feeling tired and thought - I'll just paint the wood of the spear. Then I said, well, maybe a little more and started in on the tattoos. Not really a quick thing to paint when I'm tired. Inspiration from Jason Momoa and Moana.

    Honest review of the Farmers box

    I really don't agree that good painters will hate these models, or that if you like them you must not care about painting. If anything they are harder for weaker painters to paint since they are more likely to rely on wash and drybrush techniques.

    Leather and rope done. I tried to give the rope a green tinge. Apologies for the dirty lense.

    Honest review of the Farmers box

    I find the author is over-stating the quality difference between metal and plastic. Or, to be fair, the point of quality between acceptable and unacceptable is high for the author. You can see in the review who his painted models look. My bar isn't as high. I liked the Kick Off miniatures and found they painted up well. Biggest issue was Spigot with an unidentifiable lump on his chest which wasn't much clearer on the metal version. I am currently painting the Fisherman 6 player box and would happily have taken the contents as the new plastic with goal, terrain and cardboard tokens for nearly half the price.
