  1. Hello all Playing against hunters for the first time with Alchemists and wanted to advice on the match, best starting six options and what to watch out for. I have all the players but no union options. Thanks Ben
  2. Hello all just got into guild ball back in November after I saw the farmers in my local shop. While I haven’t got as many games in as I would like I have been busy painting. so far I have bought farmers, brewers and some Morticians when my lgs was selling off the individual blisters. So far I have been good and haven’t bought anything else (I’m sure that’ll change with the rat catchers around the corner). For today’s post here is the first farmers box and the first half of my brewers teams. And the farmers Sorry about the farmers photos, for some reason no matter what I did they looked a little dull.

    Hello all Finished my Brewers, until Decimate is released anyway. Trying to work out a tournament 10 for my first event. But until then here are some more photos on my friends blog http://fullsd.blogspot.co.uk/2018/03/ringwood-worst-brewers-guild-ball.html?m=1

    What was your first Guild and why?

    What was your first Guild and what attracted you to that Guild? Brewer, liked the models and the theme. Do you still play that Guild or are you a deserter and play a new Guild yet? Yep, only team I have painted all the players for. Does your original Guild still hold your heart or have you a new favourite? Currently yes, but Alchemists are making a play for top spot.
  5. I prefer videos no longer than 40 minutes preferably a little shorter. The 2x speed videos are great for this. i like a mix of teams, don’t want to see the same team every video unless they have just come out. commentary needs to be entertaining and preferable a little insight into the play, things like “I might have done this” or “this is a mistake as it meant his opponent could do x,y,z” or “just great move” i don’t care about graphics too much, just a reminder of the score from time to time or just post the score when it changes. For rule graphics I think you can just do a quick explanation in the coms or if I need to I’ll look it up. Just my 2 cent

    Hello from the New Forest

    Just to say there is also a small group of us in Bournemouth. I’m flexible on nights I can game and I can travel if needed. We have 3 stores in the Bournemouth/Poole area and there isn’t a night during the week we don’t have a games night on. Ben

    Thanks for the tip, I’ll give it a go. Thanks bud. I made the colour by accident but I was happy with the results.
  9. Hello All I'm just about to finish painting all my Kick Off models and because as I enjoyed painting the Brewers more than the Masons, prefer the look of the models and the play theory of them, I want to add to them first. But what do I add? A caveat though, I'm not a fan of the Esters model, so I want to go with Tapper as my captain. I have heard Stoker is a good first buy and in my totally noob theory, Harry The Hat and him throwing AOE fire seems like a plan? I'm planning on going to a few tournaments soon, so I guess I need to have a 9 player roster sorted out? Otherwise I'm open to any and all ideas. Thanks Ben

    Got Kick Off, now what to add?

    Thanks guys your advice is very welcome. Tankard that write up wasn't too lang and really helped. Can I ask a lot of people have said Stave is bad, why is he bad? Thanks Ben
