    Veteran Harmony's Sword

    I store mine in a Feldherr case too. My Mallet and Flint are fine... so it could just be an iffy sculpt, or a one off knock that caused a weakness. These things happen though - all part of being a gamer.

    It’s not the whole piece that’s the issue - that got glued on fine. But now it’s attached, the sword is incredibly fragile and is in danger of snapping off at the hilt.

    Veteran Harmony's Sword

    Mine hasn’t broken yet, but it’s only a matter of time. The sword is very fragile and I hold my breath every time I open my carry case. I have got rookie Chisel on standby to use instead, as once it’s come off I can’t see an easy way of fixing it.

    Other than Spigot joining the Union, all players are staying in their Guilds.

    Veteran Chisel

    I would love her to have Swift Strikes like Salvo, but I would settle for a knockdown somewhere on her playbook.

    I can’t quite get my head around a veteran apprentice !

    Counter Charge Discussion

    Just watch any game from the world champs - everyone forgot about Taters counter charge ! I think its main use is that it forces your opponent to think, which burns down their clock, or it forces sub-optimal positioning from them. Every once in a while people will forget it - bizarrely normally in a Masons mirror match !

    Because ‘players’ is the term used for the two people taking part in the game.

    Rat Catchers

    Her rules were discussed on the latest episode of Strictly the Worst - it sounds like they will be released on the blog this week.
  10. They sure are. If go to the main Steamforged website and look for the ‘Mob Football Association’ document on the resources page, it has rules for a load of alternative formats. Steamforged even set up separate events for them at Steamcon (including prize support), but the sign ups are normally quite low.
  11. It does, but people choose not to play them. Speed Ball, Dodge Ball, Multi Ball Mayhem to name a few. I have played a few games of Dodge Ball, and it acts as a great palate cleanser after a hard days gaming. It does seem that the community hasn’t really taken to these alternate formats and it can be hard to get a game, but they do exist and are good fun.

    Welcome on board. I don’t know about Luton itself, but I know there is a decent Guild Ball scene in Milton Keynes, which shouldn’t be too far away from you ?

    De Tinnen Roos Statue Dimensions

    I measured mine - it’s 8.5” with the base.

    Idea for Thresher Change

    And don’t forget that on Saturday none of Alex’s team was painted - to play in the final he needed a fully painted team. He mentions in the interview that only taking 8 players allowed him to get some extra sleep 😅

    Idea for Thresher Change

    Two highly ranked players forgot or didn’t spot counter charge on Tater. At a top table, one mistake like that can easily cost you a game. I think Farmers are very good, but I also think the answers are out there - it will just take a bit of time to get used to them and work them out. Also people are being disingenuous to Alex, he has been playing Farmers for months, he is a very good player, and he played incredibly tight all weekend (and over a gruelling schedule) - he is a very worthy winner.
