  1. Experimenting with videos but the camera was setup wrong Game is from the escalation league. Butchers want to deal 12 dmg in an activation and place a condition for their points, Union wants to score a snapshot and kick scatter for theirs. A bit of ball play and brisket can score activation 3 and get back to my half Try and get her protected a bit but Rage tells Gutter to take the kill Brisket comes back to the field, Rage ganks Ox, and the scrum forms in the mid field. The camera lost power there Decimate dies to conditions after giving Boar a momentum farm. Ox returned via fast ground and legendaried into Rage, leaving the usurper on 1HP. Rage returned the favour and took out Meathook. Decimate and Grace got their snapshot but Shank and Boar killed everyone else for the win.
  2. Dead Blackheart, dead Coin, dead Snakeskin, Minx, Grace, Benediction Vs Skatha, Fahad, Jaecar, Seenah, Egret, Chaska Chaska kicks off pumpkin ball : Fahad is first casualty, then Minx takes out Chaska (with friends): Dead Snakeskin taps in pumpkin 🎃 : Jaecar and the bear kill Dead Blackheart: Grace tackles Jaecar and passes to Dead Snakeskin, for snapshot screamer! : Bear kills Minx: Dead Snakeskin finishes off Fahad!: 12-4 to the Union Really fun game, my original opponent couldn't make it with his butchers, so another friend stepped in borrowing my hunters and we were both using new teams. So somehow a team of dead Union players beating Hunters, brings Hemlocke one game closer to Hunters - Don't ask for logic, it's Halloween! 🎃
  3. Last night, I deployed my brand new Blacksmiths against John who was playing Veteran Rage, Strongbox, Fangtooth, Avarisse and Greede, Minx and Mist. game started positively as the Blacksmiths janked there way up the field, Avarisse got a 7 damage smack in the teeth from Sledge but then Rage decided enough was enough and all hell broke loose. Ferrite clinched a quick goal just after Sledge fell to his furiousness and then soon after, Avarisse and Greede sent Ferrite to the apothecaries along with iron. Mist countered with another goal and things were looking bleak! Iron returned and was looking like he might be able to get back up for another goal but Rage spotted a weakened Cinder and that was all she wrote! Sad times but good that Gutter is coming home to the Butchers! The wall started out well!! Avarisse and Greede say... 'Get in the bin!' Mist says... 'I got this' Blacksmiths cry in their cornflakes...

    Hello The Union

    Hey Unionists Being playing GB since April with Hunters, but just picked up Dark Harvest and used it as an excuse to start playing Union. I already have Minx for my Hunters and picked up Grace and Benny, as I really like the sculpts and that rounds out a six man team: Blackheart, Coin, Snakeskin, Minx, Grace and Benediction For all I know it's a terrible lineup, but hey - it's the six minis I have! Playing my first game on Halloween against Butchers. Any tips for a Union Noob? How to use the players/team? Tips for them against Butchers, useful video match reports / podcasts etc? Cheers!

    Dodging the gutter...

    Ok, so not the finals, but an important game for the fish. Convincing gutter to join their ranks and trying to keep her out of harms way throughout the game doesn't sound much appealing, but it's what Longshanks requested from Shark in the first place. The crowd starts to shout and roar when the players run up on the pitch. On one side we have Salt, Angel, Greyscales, Hag and Sakana closely followed by Shark. Some ladies in the front rows even faint by seeing his raw natural beauty passing by. On the opposing side, we have Rage, Strongbox, Decimate, Minx, Harry and Gutter taking their favorite spots. "Ok, remember guys, this one should be over quickly, our usual play with one exception. Greyscales, you have to try to get close to Gutter and give her this note. Make sure she leaves the pitch unharmed. Try to ignore her." Shark is pretty clear in his instructions towards the team. Rage takes the ball and kicks it up the pitch, it lands right in front of Salt. Salt picks up the ball and tries to kick it towards Angel, but misses, Shark just able to intercept it. Shark grins. This is his moment. Runs the length towards the Union goal post but encounters Rage and Strongbox when he gets close. Just what he needs to leap a bit further and get a shot it... He carefully aims the end of his spear just before the treasure chest on the turtles back, he creates momentum, and lands just behind it. He takes the shot and ... Fish 4 to Union 0. The Union players didn't even know what happened. On the left flank, Gutter gets the ball. Rage, Decimate and Minx finish of Shark who is trying to use the cover of some barrels to his advantage Fish 4 Union 2. Greyscales advances up the pitch and does as instructed, he gets closer to Gutter who is greeting him half way. Gutter feels uncomfortable and wants to make sure the fish players doesn't get his hand on the ball, she kicks it away from both. Suddenly Shark emerges out of nowhere and grabs it. Loosing drops of blood and bandages along the way he runs down the flank towards the Union goal post once more, looks at Greyscales who carefully engages in a conversation with Gutter. The two seem totally focussed, ignoring the superstar. His chance to make a second goal and drag the attention towards him, not the duo. He shoots and scores! The crowd goes wild. Fish 8 to Union 2. He accepts the cheering and greets the audience by swinging his spear above his head. In the center, Rage gets the ball. All other fish players try to get hold of it, but are being slain one by one. First Angel goes suicidal and charges Rage. She knew she didn't stand a single chance but the change to finish this game once and for clearly took the upper hand in the decision process. As expected she was finished off by Rage and his gang. Sakana makes the same attempt, with the same result. Fish 8 to Union 6. Greyscales finished his assignment, leaving Gutter behind on the left flank. He simply knew that the youngsters didn't stand a chance, only he could pull off such a play. He runs to the center, manages to grab the ball. He's ready to make the shot, BOOOM. The fish drops to the floor. Fish 8 to Union 8. The ball slowly rolls in the direction of Shark. Shark whistles, Salt knows perfectly what to do and runs towards Rage and his gang. Keeping them busy. Hag does the same albeit at a slightly slower pace. She starts to chant and to hum... Suddenly a wave of water is heading straight for the players in the center. Shark uses the momentum to finish off the game. Fish 12 to Union 8.

    The Union Witnesses Vet Kat

    In another GIC, Alternate Deployment game Smoke and her Alchemists take on Blackheart and his band of filthy pirates. The lineups were as follows: Smoke, Flask, Calculus, Venin, VetKat, and Compound Blackheart, Strongbox, Grace, Benediction, Gutter, and Mist With a poor kickoff Benediction was able to move up from the front line and score an opening goal. This left him exposed with a Vengeance token for the Alchemist team to sink their teeth into. Moving the ball out first the Alchemists positioned themselves around Benediction full of conditions for VetKat to unload on. This wouldn't get the take out but the top of turn two a Smoke legendary would take out Benediction. After this Blackheart attempted to get the ball off of Smoke but was unable to do so with Compound crowding him out. This would allow the rest of the team to gang up on Gutter who would take massive damage from Calculus, Compound, Venin, Flask and finally vKat, Kat was able to engage top of turn three and kill Gutter then charge Grace while engaging Mist who just took 7 damage from Venin mainly by conditions. After the free charge and an intensify from vKat he would turn his attention to mist who only had one health left and set off a Witness Me. This would leave the score at 8-6 with the Alchemists in control of the ball for Smoke to kick in for an easy 12-6. Harry what are you waiting for?

    Pegleg Puts Pirate in His Place

    Pegleg Puts Pirate in His Place Corsair brings the paint to the Pirate King in this match up. The Fishermen fielded Corsair, Tentacles, Sakana, Hag, vSiren, and Avarisse&Greed. The Union fielded Blackheart (God rest his zombie bones,) Coin, Gutter, Decimate, Benediction, and Harry the Hat. Corsair boots the ball to FPL (Fish Player Left) where gutter makes the retrieval. Gutter gets yanked in with the second harpoon where the Siren and Corsair swing some and get the ball off of her. Harry sets Corsair on fire with a molotov. Everyone else is playing positional. Fish take the initiative in round 2 sending their thugs A&G to send Gutter off the field early. Harry rushes Corsair but the seadog dug his peg in for a defensive stance and took the steam out of the Hat's charge (rolled four 3's and two 1's) but couldn't keep his balance, his bulbous backside booming the ball to nearby octopus, Tentacles. Corsair retaliates by sending Harry off the pitch with some key assists from the thugs and Siren before jogging to block Tentacles from the Pirate King's charge lane. The rest of the turn was spent positioning and making ineffective strikes. Siren's dread gaze mercilessly mitigated the mercenaries' muggings. Tentacles drops the ball where Sakana can safely secure it, he is pursued by Decimate. In round 3 the Union took the first swings but earns no take outs. Decimate attempts to take the ball from Sakana but underestimates his ability to get out of the way. Corsair removes her from the pitch for her transgressions. Benediction moves to block Sakana's shot but to no success as the fish slips by. Sakana rockets in a goal. Harry brings the ball down field to Blackheart. In round 4 the Union yet again go first but in a hearbreaker for the Pirate King Harry whiffs the pass and Blackheart doesn't have the energy to make up for it. Fishermen promptly remove Benediction and the game is called. 12-0 Fishermen Link to pics https://imgur.com/gallery/MYW0H

    Gutter Fights Farmers for Freedom

    With Rage in chains Gutter sees an opportunity to escape Rage and the Union once and for all. Since the murder of her beloved, Blackheart, Gutter has been in self exile. Contemplating what her next move will be. Everyone sees her as a rabid dog, a killer. If it wasn't for the animosity between herself and Rage they would likely be an effective duo, at least that's what most of the guilds believe. The Butchers have played with her before. They know her style and appreciate it like a fine art. Gutter knew that if she were to escape the grasp of the Union and join another guild the Butchers would likely welcome her with open arms. But is this what she wanted? The Butcher by the name of Brisket now leads the Union. Slowly transforming into a pack of religious zealots as opposed to a gang of mercs. Gutter took this opportunity to get on the pitch once again. She wasn't keen on the idea of fighting alongside 'nutty religious freaks' but it beat fighting alongside a madman like Rage. Besides, Gutter needed to prove to the other guilds that she was a player worth fighting for. Brisket was reluctant to take Gutter on the pitch at first but she remembered fighting alongside when she was still a member of Ox's Butchers. Gutter was ruthless but cunning. A fine addition to any team but a liability. Blackheart kept her on a leash and now that he's gone who is left to keep her in check? Despite all this Brisket felt the need to give her a chance. Everyone deserves a chance at redemption. Gutter has fought alongside half of this team before. She played with Brisket a few times, sure. But she was never a member of the Union until recently. Mist and Gutter played alongside dozens of times but she never trusted him. He was just too damn quick. One second you see him beside you then would vanish in a puff of smoke. He was not much of a fighter. Mist was a runner. And there were plenty of times when the two of them were in a tough spot and he would abandon her to save his own skin. Granted, when Mist pulled off crap like that he would typically score and win the game for Gutter's team. But she just could not appreciate his style. Not yet anyways. Gutter could have sworn that she was playing alongside Coin. Blackheart's old pet. But that couldn't be the case. The snake was dead. Gutted and filleted by Rage. Was Gutter going mad? He looked so real. No... That can't be him... Coin is dead. Him and Blackheart are dead. And now the two new players. They were a sight to see. Solthecian fanatics but damn intimidating players. The big one calls himself Benediction while the little one calls herself Grace. Fitting names, Gutter felt. She got the impression that they didn't like the idea of having her on the pitch. But Brisket insisted. Whispered something to them and though they were reluctant they agreed to let Gutter play. Not sure what happened to Brisket exactly. Clearly some serious fallout with the Butchers. Everyone knew her and Fillet didn't get along. But now some sort of cult leader? Able to boss around these Solthecian psychopaths? It didn't matter though. Gutter was allowed to play and that's all that mattered to her. Her opponents: the Farmers. No one had seen the Farmers play in years until recently. They went from a lowly guild that no one gave a damn about to a respectable guild to an even more respectable guild ball team. Gutter felt bad that they had to be the ones she had to cut down first. What was this feeling? Sympathy? Gutter actually felt sympathy for the Farmers. Since Blackheart's death Gutter has clearly changed and she knew it. But was this change for the better? That's not something she has considered until recently. Only time will tell. The game starts and the farmers kick the ball off to the Union. Grace says a prayer of some sort and Brisket seems empowered. This is all new to Gutter. Her teammates are calm and praying? The Union has changed drastically, let's see if it's for the better. After both teams begin to advance to the middle of the pitch Gutter sees Brisket just sprint to the ball. Gutter hasn't seen anyone sprint that fast since she last played with the Fishermen. Brisket grabbed the ball, dodged and weaved between the farmers while poking them with her short blades, and then suddenly... She scores. Not even a minute in and Gutter's team is already up four points. Gutter was amazed. She saw Shark from the Fishermen's Guild pull stuff like this off but a Butcher? This was insanity. Gutter was starting to respect Brisket's playstyle a lot more. Gutter stuck to her own playstyle: laying on the pain. She met the majority of the Farmer's in the middle of the pitch but she wasn't alone. Benediction was with her. Despite his reluctance to play with her earlier, Benediction was a team player. He was ready to help Gutter and defend her with his life. There was something behind Benediction though... It's that damn snake. Gutter just kept seeing Coin on the pitch. She tried to not to pay attention to what was clearly a hallucination but couldn't help herself. Real or not, the presence of Coin seemed to inspire her. Grace and Brisket were playing their own game to try to get the ball but that damn Scarecrow was interfering. Creepy bugger, he was. He tied up Grace for the most part while Brisket was bound to get bombarded by the other Farmers soon. But what was Mist doing? He was actually getting involved and trying to protect Brisket. This was not the Mist that Gutter once knew. This Mist seemed to have a spine. Gutter witnessed Mist get knocked out cold. Suppose he should have stuck with what he knew best; running. Gutter couldn't help but admire him though for that. He certainly didn't last long but he fell so Brisket could stand. With the time that Mist earned Brisket she was able to get out of harm's way. She took a few hits from the big oaf farmer but only got a few cuts and bruises. She leapt over to Grace to help out with the scarecrow. While all that was going on Gutter and Benediction tied just about everyone else up in the middle. Benediction was standing firm but for the most part the Farmers were ignoring him. They knew they could not get through his armour so they went for Gutter instead. Gutter started to take a beating but was able to fight back. With every hit she took she dished out a hit just as hard. She felt rejuvenated with every blow. After a back and forth between herself and the Farmers (and one chicken taken out) the farmers decided to focus on Benediction. Benediction held his own for a time but even he was unable to withstand the onslaught that the Farmers brought. While their attention was focused on Benediction though, Mist snuck back onto the pitch and was able to get a goal himself. Making the score 8 to 4 in favour of the Union. For the remainder of the game the Scarecrow basically wanted to play keep away with the ball. The Farmers knew what happens when either Brisket or Mist get their hands on the ball so they felt it would be more effective to win through brute force. A fine strategy but it will only work if they can take Gutter down. And Gutter does not go down easily. Over and over she would take a beating from the Farmers but over and over she would dish it back. Eventually the handsome Farmer, who resembled Harry the Hat for some reason, got his hands on the ball. It would have been an easy goal if it wasn't for Brisket. Like lightning Brisket ran up, took the ball from him, dodged and weaved in between the other Farmers and scored the game winning goal. Just like that the Union had won their game. Gutter felt for a moment that maybe she didn't need to leave the Union after all. With Rage gone what does she have to be afraid of? She knew they chained Rage up though. And she hasn't seen Hemlocke and some of the other Union members for a long time. Perhaps they were chained up as well. Gutter needed to stick with her plan and not give these Solthecians the chance to capture her. She was unsure whether or not to risk more games with them. At the very least she likely made a good impression in this game. She saw some Butchers in the audience observing her. But there was another team that had their eye on her... The Fishermen. Gutter felt that maybe she was going about it all wrong. Rather than choosing between the Union and the Butchers, why not an entirely different team? She played with the Fishermen before in the past. And after this game with the Farmers she certainly has grown to appreciate the fast paced, goal scoring style. Their captain Corsair may be a fat drunk but he seems more level headed than most of the Butchers. Maybe the Fishermen will appreciate a killer like Gutter. Or maybe Gutter can change her playstyle entirely... Only time will tell. First thing's first. Gutter needed to make sure to not get locked up her. Author's notes: Sorry for the poor quality pics. Didn't realize how bad they were until I uploaded them to my computer. Harry was being used a proxy for Tater. My opponent had his Tater in the mail during this game and really wanted to try him out. Somewhat kills the narrative but I figured if a dead Snake is on the pitch then why not a proxy?
  10. Union beer enthusiasts want some meat!The Union: sBrisket, Strongbox, Avarisse + Greede, Harry, Benediction, MistButchers: Fillet, Princess, Boiler, Meathook, Boar, BrisketThe Union start with Mist making the kick-off. The ball goes a bit too far almost to the Butchers deployment line.The Butchers pass the ball around a little, but use some of the momentum to get out of Mist's threat range. At the end of turn 1 Mist is able to attack Boiler and get some momentum to get the first activation for round 2. He then immediately attacks and scores a goal and quickly hides behind the butcher's goal after hearing calls for vengeance.The Butchers, who are furious because of the early Union lead, attack head on into the Union side. They take out Harry, Averisse and Strongbox, but forget a little about the ball, which was loose after a failed scatter. It didn't look like it was in immediate danger, so they left it for a bit. But Brisket, being the seasoned player she is, was able to get to the ball and score with a cunning play, that can only be described as legendary! The Union is now 8-5 ahead.After that the Butchers were foaming at their mouths, calling for the traitors blood, but Benediction stood calmly like a rock and kept Fillet in check for the rest of the game, giving his captain time to breathe. Meathook got into a position to score but instead cunningly kicked the ball almost to the Union's edge of the pitch, making it impossible to recover. Brisket realised that another goal is not an option anymore, so she first took out a battered Meathook and then helped their side to gang up on Boiler and score a second take-out for the win. The game ends with 12-5 for the Union, again in support of the Brewer's team.

  12. Union beer enthusiasts vs. Masons The Union: sBrisket, Strongbox, Avarisse + Greede, Harry, Benediction, Mist Mason's Guild: Honour, Wrecker (Esters proxy), Harmony, Flint, Mallet, Tower (Harry proxy) The Masons start very well with Flint kicking the ball so that only he can get it. By the end of turn one, thanks to superior strategy, they take the lead with a goal scored by Harmony. Masons have the advantage on momentum and get the first activation for turn 2 and promptly score another goal with a very well played Honour-Harmony double activation. The Union, now already 0-8 behind, need to step up, if they want to make something happen. They decide to hide the ball with Brisket and Mist and go for a fight with the rest of the team. They start to attack Honour and after the other Masons join in, a big brawl starts in the middle of the pitch, which the Union eventually win by taking out Honour, Wrecker, Tower and Mallet in that order. And after Harmony unsuccessfully tries to get to the ball, she gets taken out as well. The score is now 9:8 for the Union, but they start running out of time! Fortunately, Mist is hellafast and is able to score for the win before overtime runs out! Final score: 12:10 for the Union in support of the Brewer's Guild!

  14. Obulus Resurrects Blackheart in order to scout the upstart Farmers Death has not slowed down Blackheart one bit as he made a first turn goal run bouncing off of Grange and Harrow to get in position for a kick. Tater Charges Minx to counter the tap in threat but could not stop the Union captain. Mid turn two mist tackled Bushel to kick it out to Blackheart mid scrum. The Farmers shift to take outs and down Mist and Minx but at this point it was too late. With Mist returning at the top of turn three he manages a tackle off of scare crow mechana Jack straw and sends the last pass to the Pirate captain. What did Obulus learn from this sinister exhibition match. Though the Union leader is dead that does not stop him from dodging and scoring his way to a victory. The Union - Blackheart, Strongbox, Minx, Mist, Fangtooth, RageFarmers - Grange, Peck, Tater, Bushel, Jack Straw, HarrowScore 12:4 for the Union (3 goals) Farmers (2 Kos)

    Let's Bring Decimate Home, Laddies!

    The Union in Chains is upon us, my fellow Drunks. And I for one am down for embracing #TeamDecimate. With access to Besters' songs or Tapmaster 5000's Commanding Aura, we've got potential for a quick moving killing machine, who's a decent baller. Anatomical Precision and Commanding Aura. Together. If you're not stiff or frothing down below at that, you don't have a beating heart in your chest. Besides, the Masons wanting her is good enough to take her as our own. Let's bring Decimate home, to the stablest Guild in all the realm.
  16. Hey Hunters! Started guildball with Skatha box + Seenah and Chaska at Salute. Played maybe six games or so with just them Just completed my hunters with the mystery box Played one game swapping Chaska for Egret and another swapping Ulfr for Jaecar as well. Currently getting a game in every week Doing relatively well so far, but we're all new players at a very friendly, social, non-competitive club. Got a friendly team tournament in another meta, early November and expecting a steep learning curve. Not expecting anything from my first tourney of course, but want to prep to do my best! So far my tactics seem to be moving towards holding central defense/midfield with Vet Hearne/Seenah. Using them as beat sticks for takeouts. The others for movement /distraction /assists and scoring (usually Skatha) Won my last game with 2 takeouts 2 goals and generally finding scoring more effective in my little meta! Immediate advice I could use is what union it's worth buying to use in my 10? None? Just Minx? Are the others worth a look? Obviously I'm gonna have limited practise time between now and the tourney and I still haven't played a game with Theron yet, so I need to focus my time and money with potential union picks! Also just any other advice that might be handy going into the tourney would be much appreciated Thanks for reading this far!
  17. If a Union player benefitting from the Most Wanted GIC takes out Memory, can 3 MP be spent on 1 VP.
  18. So I've taken the scary step after only playing Butchers since the games release to dive head long into a footballing Blackheart team. My first attempts to hit the pitch in an Alt Deployment face off. any tips or advice on using the players I've selected. I am trying to focus on the footballing aspect with maybe a tiny bit of damage threat. My pondering is leading me to look at a few other players but the core I am thinking of keeping the same (so no a switch to V.Rage is not on the cards lol) https://www.fishywargaming.com/single-post/2017/09/01/Loot-Plunder
  19. I'm trying to work out a strong vetRage & Blackheart roster to play into the new meta and in preparation for a steamcon qualifier. I know that the "ideal" or "most effective" is all subjective and of course very dependant on player skill. But since currently my playtime is limited and I have an abundance of dojo and solo vassal time, I figured I'd put my thoughts out to the community. We all know Rage is a support beater monster but I've been having some good success with Blackhearts strong 2-2 game. He's a solid beater/striker switch captain that can really spread his team out to skirt around teams that want to scrum or teams like Smoke who can really punish clumped players. With all being said, below are my thoughts on a roster: vetRage Blackheart Strongbox: he's amazing with vetRage and not terrible with blackheart Mist: one of the best non-captain kickoff pressures out there Benediction: Reach, survivability, momentous pushes and solthecian are great for either captain. Rage loves having a model to reliably disengage him and impart wisdom is great for red fury. Gutter: Reliable momentous damage, amazing wrap potential with bloody Coin and crowdouts, and chain grab helps to control teams that try to spread way out against vetRage. Rage: helps Blackhearts 2-2 game with reliable momentous damage, inf efficiency and condition damage. Tooled up on blackheart nearly brings him back to season 2 level of beat down. Benediction (and/or Harry) can help to reliably disengage rage. Minx: great for both captains. Very efficient, fast, snare on damage and can score/retrieve the ball decently. Slightly squishy. 2 FLEX SPOTS Snakeskin: one of the best ball killers in the game. Shark (and midas I suppose) is weakened but is still strong into vetRage. Snakeskin can buy vetRage a turn or two each time shark scores for the beat down to continue (albeit at a cost of 3inf). She's also a decent piece in footballing teams and can tank a lot of hits against male. Harry: still has his aura, which is great for receiving, and is still great at pushing and decent at knocking down. Although he competes with Benediction for this role, redundancy in pushing and knock downs is not a bad thing in some matchups. Harry Stil has strong control with character plays, and rising anger + counter attack threat helps to dissuade attacking Avarisse & Greede: the new hotness, always liking playing with new toys. Can put out absurd damage, tho very influence hungry to keep Greede safe. Since Avarisse never wants to charge, this pair is very slow. I see their potential with practice, but with Canadian championships coming up soon I worry I don't have the time to figure them out well enough. Hemlocke: with midas sad, smoke might make a comeback, I've heard this is happening in the Chicago meta. In that case smelling salts become very useful. Even in other matchups like masons, blind is very strong and noxious blast is always solid. Never will 1-2inf be wasted on her. Still very squishy tho. Coin: might be a better mascot in a blackheart team that wants to spread out compared to the slow speed and area of effect for the turtle. Those are my thoughts, what do you guys think? I'm pretty set on the first 8, trying to decide on the last two mostly (leaning towards snakeskin for 1 of then). Tho I am of course open to suggestion.

  21. Not sure where on the forums to post the match report of our recent tournament final, so I'll put it here if that's ok? https://lancsf.wordpress.com/2017/08/20/the-gnome-tournament-final-2017/ Cheers! Alan.
  22. So with all the errata changes, how do people see these matchups going now. Assuming union have rage + blackheart available and fish and alchemists have both captains in their respective rosters. Fish Previously this felt like blackheart had better tools to deal with the fish since shark was their normal drop (rage ruins the corsair party). Shark could spread out way to much against rage and sacrifice players to retrieve the ball as he moves towards his 3 goals. Blackhearts ability to spread out and his natural reach and manoeuvrability gave him a few more tool, although it was still an uphill battle. But now the shark and siren control game is much weaker, perhaps rage is quite good into the matchup now? I guess shark can still spread out with his 3 or 4 strikers, so this might be an issue for rage as before, but he can't shut rage down as much with his loss of gut and string at least. And dropping rage into fish also covers if he tries to list chicken you and drops corsair which I don't think blackheart really likes to see. But perhaps blackheart still is better into fish than rage and is now much more of an even matchup due to the shark and siren nerf (assuming they drop shark) Alchemists Although I don't have a whole lot experience against alchemists, it feels like blackheart might slightly edge Rage out here too. I'm not sure. Against midas, with the change to Harry meaning rage probaby won't be taking him (and therefor one less great reach model), and again with blackheart natural reach, it seems like blackheart might be better. Although blackheart doesn't quite have the tools to deal with the midas goon squad (okat and now a+g?) as well as rage, but maybe that won't be a thing withoit Harry. If he drops smoke, again it feels like blackheart might edge rage out since smoke should really be able to control a rage team that likes to bunch up through aoes and without Harry rage has slightly less momentum to play with and deal with all the conditions. Blackheart against smoke can again spread out much nore and probably do a pretty reliable 2-2 game. Anyways, I'm not saying that i think rage can't play into either, it's just that Canadian nationals are coming up next month, and since I'm working up in Alaska until the end of August, my practise window is small. So I'd like to be able to really focus my preparation games in the short time I'll have. So do you guys think?

    My Collection

    I started around early season 2 and now I've collected Butcher's, Brewer's, Mason's and Union in that time. I have every model for each of the teams and have fully painted them all too.

    Season Four Solthecian Player

    What Solthecian players would people like to see In Season Four? Number one I would love to see a Solthecian themed Mascot, for some reason I have always thought of an Owl for them. I would like to see an Attacking Midfielder, a mysterious Warrior Monk type, since we have Defensive Midfielder, Winger and two Strikers. I would be great to be able to field a whole Solthecian team on the Pitch.
