    Season 4 results

    After playing many different guilds for quite some time, I have become intrigued with season 4 farmers. So far I have had success with both captains and currently sitting at a 5-0 record. I have played alchs twice butchers twice and morticians once. Setting up HM is easier than ever with the buffs to ploughman and jackstraw and the reapers really do a lot without having to remove them too often. The teams I have had success into have also been glass cannon types so I am wondering how I will do into Brewer hefty lineups and a lot of tough hide. Just seeing what everyone else thought. Happy Planting!

    Farmers & Stuff

    Grettings everybody, so, a good two weeks after Grace and Benediction, The Honest Land finally arrived! I'm very excited to start working on them, as I have some conversions planned. I will post updates here whenever I have something interesting to share. I also took some pictures of the Farmers fresh out of the box, so if anyone is interested in that, tell me and I will share them. So, first off, Grace and Benediction in their current iteration: Benediction is obviously further along; I usually start with the bigger minis because I find it easier to get a feel for the colours I want. I aimed for very earthy tones, you know, humble clerics' robes and such. The armour is not supposed to be NMM but some kind of bone or ceramic (I'm not quite sure, mainly it was supposed to be brown...), but came out looking a little like that anyway. I think that effect will pass after future glazes. Next up, Grange: There is probably no real reason to rebase him, except that he was standing too far back for my taste (I like my minis square in the center). Besides, the texture on the original base has a little edge towards the lips, which bothers me with most inlays and bothered me here. Otherwise, I wanted to cut off his saws' handles, drill holes and insert some wire, but my drill is to big so I had to dismiss that idea. I am still thinking about cutting all the upper details off to make it a clean blade, since I don't know what those knobs should be good for... Anyone got an opinion on that? Additionally, the missing eyes the Farmers suffer from have been filled with milliput. More updates coming soon, tell me what you think!

    New Farm Hand

    Hey guys, I just ordered myself the Old Fathers Harvest set as my first team. I've only ever played one demo of GB so went for rule of cool when buying; however there seems to be a concerning level of negative reactions to S4 changes with Farmers. As such what advice would you give a new player to help make my entry to this game smoother and more enjoyable? I'm happy to buy the original farmers team if needs be, but if I can get advice around the team I'm getting that would be super appreciated too.
  4. I recently played a game against farmers and I was wondering about the mechanics of reanimate. If pony pot smashes face and reduces jack straw to zero. Does the bleed apply before or after reanimate prox.
  5. Forum, I'm back! After a bit of a Hiatus I have returned with an episode of RTL. There are only a few episodes left before season 4.

    Vs Farmers

    1) So now that Farmers have been nerfed does it change anything? I'm playing My First Morts games versus Farmers having finally got a handle on pre-nerf Thresher with my Alchs. I was Going to proably take Obulus, Dirge, oGraves, Ghast, Brainpan & Memory and 1 other. I want Obulus Because although I like Scalpel, against Farmers her AP is wasted (especially with millstone nerf) I figure Graves for 2" and Tooled up. Ghast for easy KD, Fear and 2" melee. Brainpan and memory for using memory to block charge lanes (and not set off Counter charge) and to setup a goal, and for damage (and to not give up VP) Dirge for Signled out (and not being Vileswarm) I can't decide who else. Casket seems like a good shout, but then I lack speed for scoring. Pellage or Cosset for damage, but then they can die quick. Bonesaw for Scoring. 2) help?
  7. Hi there, in this thread I'd like to post collections of photos of Guild Ball figures I painted over the years. Which means we're hopping back to (late) 2015 for starters, but it won't be long until we're up to date! First two teams I painted were Butchers and Morticians (naturally): On I went to do some Fishermen! Shortly thereafter I also painted Captain: Thanks for having a look, hope you like the minis and stay tuned for more!

    Stave X Windle

    It started as a joke of me threatening the mighty Moose Jaw meta with Stave/Windle slash fic. And then I remembered I'm friends with an Illustrator. Spigot and Friday ain't the only players with secret liaisons, eh? An old hand and a young buck. When their eyes met from across the pitch, it was like an Exploding Barrel in their hearts. Would their desires stay unresolved, or would they Stop Slacking and take a huge risk together? Stave X Windle.
  9. Forum, Episode 19 of Run the Length is out. I take on world champ Alex Botts and his butchers in this episode. I make a decent attempt at some new tech with by kicking grange list.

  10. Hopefully will be a display of my new Masons models and any appropriate Union players over time. First model is Chisel, everything else is on order Comments and criticism greatly appreciated. Looking forward to getting more of the Guild painted.
  11. Can Ploughman place multiple furrow AOE or does the AOE move to the next spot so there is ever only 1 ring?

    V. Hounor Ideas

    Posted this on Facebook but thought I would post this here too. Ok so while I do like vet Honour and the harvest maker manipulation she brings, she doesn't have really have a wow factor. I also feel that she is very similar to millstone in her states and playbook results. So with this in mind I thought up some ideas to differentiate her a bit from milestone and give her a bit of a wow factor. First off is giving her tac 5. The dog is already giving her a crowd out so this is a good way if showing a gang up with out writing unnecessary text and is flavourful to the model. Secondly there has been a lot of talk of wanting her to give out a dodge to models on her team. While I agree that farmers struggle with out of activation positioning I feel that this encroaches a bit on milestones design space due to her get out and let's be honest, thresher doesn't need another threat extension. Therefor I thought about a 'reverse' millstone effect. Round 'em up: 4" pulse All models within the pulse suffer a 2" push towards this model. This would either be a heroic play or a 1 cost character play that targets self or a harvest marker in 2" depending on how powerful it ends up being. Preferably a heroic as it would be harder to use it as a threat extender on turn 1. I feel that this would help with the farmers positioning game especially in a grange team where they want to keep models in his honest labour aura. It is also very thematic as you can imagine the dog running round herding people in like a sheepdog would. So while I still like the current version and will probably take her in my 10 (if I can work out who to drop) this is what I would personally do to make her a bit more unique and flavourful. Let me know what you think.
  13. (1) Plouhgman places a rough groung AoE (2) Honour uses Crofting Time and places a HM in the AoE, gaining +1 HM (3) Honour then uses Fields of Wheat to remove one HM and place a new (!) HM in the rough ground. QUESTION: does step (3) also result in +1 HM due to Fertile Soil, thereby generating 4 HM in total?

    Themed terrain and goals

    Greetings fellow laborers, Looking to make some themed terrain for the best team out there and was hoping for some inspiration. I already have a windmill goal in construction. What kinds of terrain/goals have you constructed? I would love to see them.

    Idea for Thresher Change

    played a game the other day with thresher and loved him. my opponent however didn't and though he was a bit over powered, which apparently is what most of the internet is saying as well. While I think he's not over powered and there are ways to play around him, It got me thinking on what I would do to tone him down a bit but still keep his play style and this is what I came up with. its basically remove "Extended Reach" and change Crow scarer to "While this model is within [4"] of a friendly harvest-marker, this model melee zone is 3"." this removes some of his defensiveness as he can no longer get a free counter attack while at the same time giving him the same play stye but just with more set up and allowing your opponent to remove the markers before he activates allowing for counter play. it also effects the range of his "don't fear the..." as if there is only one harvest marker with in 4' at the time when it gets removed his melee will shrink to 2" meaning if you want the most out of him 2 harvest markers need to be within 4" of him. It does give him a large control bubble as his parting blow range will be 3" if with in range of a harvest marker but that still has counter play. I thought these where quit good changes that kept to his theme and design space but just toned him down and made him require more set to be the killing monster he is. Please let me know your thoughts and what you think would be a good change for him (not that he needs it). cheers
  20. Forum! Episode 15 of RTL is out! I'm really excited about this episode for so many reasons new guilds, the world champ is guest starring, and the game is really close! The other reason I'm excited is that this was the first RTL that I edited with the new software that was paid for by my amazing backers over at Patreon and it includes some of the new graphical improvements that working with professional software brings. Let me know what you think of the changes.

    Hello from MIchigan

    Hey everyone! New player here. Got the farmer's box. Looking forward to the new one. I have a league starting on the 20th and got one going on two friends into the game with me. All I need to find now is a reliable win against butchers. The other thing I'm hoping is that brewers will get fixed next season because I really like them.
  22. Hi folks. I've got a friendly game against farmers coming up this week. We'll play tournament draft and I know he likes Grange, but I suspect he might want to try Tresher. Any tips? Play ball with Honor or beat the way through his support with Hammer?

    The Rookie

    So I've been somewhat loathed to post a link here for some reason, but I guess I really should I started The Rookie podcast towards the end of last year and have recently released my 3rd episode. At best this is a the ramblings of a "completely new" player trying to get to grips with the game of Guild Ball, around not having a lot of time, and a small child on hand to take up whatever moments I have spare. In either case, its about as open as I can be about what I think of this game, as well as a desperate plea for someone to help me "Get Good". From this I hope great epic stories will unfold and a new world will open before me... or otherwise I can make a few friends and get hopelessly drunk at weekend tournaments. Both potentially being the same thing. Anyway, I hope you listen, and either discard this to the out bin in your office. Or keep it on your app of choice, should you be so kind. http://www.buzzsprout.com/135717 It is on iTunes as well should that help.
