  1. What clock to use?

    I recently picked up this clock (PQ9903) but haven't used it much, so I just played with it for a few minutes to see how that number behaves (in mode 26/27). It's a count down of the extra time periods, but like Mako suggested it only counts down if the period expires. So not useful for counting VPs, but once it reaches 0 it seems to just keep going and you can start it at 0 and just ignore the number.
  2. Veteran Captain Malt?

    Whozat? What's all this fuss? ... Wait, did you say "Salt"? Never you mind then. Quaff, fetch me a pint will ya?
  3. Slacks gone metal, moving beyond Kick Off

    Group shot, everybody squeeze in! (Ug, I probably need to use a real camera and not my phone) Super quick and cheesy goal marker I whipped up the night before playing in my first local tourney.
  4. Squaddies?

    Yep, already a defined term in the rules. "Player refers to a person playing the game."
  5. Game plan deck revealed

    Does the move to the Gameplan deck obsolete the Guild Identity Cards? Or or GICs still going to become an official part of the game?
  6. Slacks gone metal, moving beyond Kick Off

    A bit base basing work to do, and I've got a full roster of 12 Hunters done! I'm not sure what I was thinking with the purple on Skatha, but she can stand out a bit. Now, do I bother putting together the Minx I picked up to use in the sort term before vMinx and Falconers drop?
  7. PVC Fishers and Butchers

    I'm disappointed to see this fail. As a newer player I'm completely sold on ready to play teams, with pre-assembled miniatures and tokens included. I was looking forward to picking up some of the existing guilds in the new format, not sure I'll do so in metal (certainly not as many). Also, I wanted Fisherman and Butchers as teams with more straight forward strategies to show off to friends. The current PVC options tend towards more complicated interactions, lots of tokens to deal with, exceptions to the standard rules, etc. If the move to PVC is supposed to make the game more accessible to new players, I don't think the design of the new teams is helping that so far.
  8. Damage Trackers

    I use cards and markers, but have been playing against people using tablet apps. I found myself thinking it would be cool if there was an app that both players could use, that would sync up and let me see my opponents health stats in real time as they get updated from the other side of the table.
  9. PVC Fishers and Butchers

    So this matches up with what people are seeing with the Ratcatchers pre-orders, and the new normal seems to be $60 full retail. A 20% increase from the Farmers and Blacksmiths boxes.

    Thanks, you guys keep putting up lots to inspire me to keep working at this. Now if only I could put in the time and get better at the game.
  11. Slacks gone metal, moving beyond Kick Off

    I've made some progress in adding to the bases, will need to get a new team shot together to show that off. But, I'd rather share two more painted Hunters. A quick job on Snow to break up the much longer time I put into vHearne.
  12. Steamcon USA Keynote

    UIC veterans, minor guilds, resculpts for plastic ... Can I just get a subscription? Send me a 6 model box every month for the next 3 years?
  13. Release Schedule - what we know

    9 more month, 9 more minor guilds in 2018? 😋
  14. Slacks gone metal, moving beyond Kick Off

    Thanks! I'm pretty happy with how these are turning out. I wanted to get all the painting finished across the team before I started gluing down anything else to the bases, but I've got various grass and shrub tufts from Shadow's Edge and I've been drying leaves and using a punch from Green Stuff World to make some leaf scatter. There will be some more detail to the bases after I'm done painting.
