So my kid didn't fully zipper my Reaper bag so when I pulled it out of the car, all of my Mason "fatties" fell out. Granite landed in the back seat, thank god, but Brick and Wrecker hit the parking lot. Wrecker popped apart, but plastic Brick bounced and didn't even have a scratch or a paint chip! Whew! More plastic figs please!
So I this conversation won't go super far in terms of getting a resolution (at least I can't imagine an official word on it) but I feel like maybe it is one we should have so we can show our interest. I would really appreciate it if there were an opportunity to order goal markers and terrain (even bundled together is fine) for existing guilds. What I mean is that if the plan is to go to all plastics in the future and to model them after the Blacksmiths and Farmers I'd like the opportunity to purchase those components without coughing up $200 to complete the 4 teams I have. I know there are the upcoming terrain packs but it would be pretty cool if SF could throw a bone to the folks that helped get them this far by offering those components in a "Goal and Terrain" supplement pack. Even if it were web exclusive and even if they were only available in limited batches it would be nice to be able to get those pieces (they are pretty nice if you haven't had a chance to see them in person) without buying the whole team again. So I ask @Steamforged, please take my money.
There's been a few threads recently about the move to plastic. In case anyone doesn't listen already, there's an interesting interview with Rich Loxam in the latest Guild Ball Tonight: http://www.guildballtonight.com/gbt/2017/2/14/episode-57-plastics The summary is that new teams from farmers onwards will be in plastic. The plastic models will be an improvement on Kick Off, and will be a mix of PVC and ABS plastic. The ABS plastic can be used on parts like bases and weapon shafts to avoid "bendy" weapons etc. Models will be pre-assembled and multi-part, with Rich saying the company would be happy to put the model in more pieces if that improves the sculpt. Don't expect existing metal teams to come out in plastic "in the next year or so". There might still be occasional resin or metal "limited edition" collectable models in the future, though this also remains to be confirmed. But there won't be a metal version of the core farmers team, for example. People who are worried about the weight of plastic minis, meanwhile, should be able to buy metal bases from a licensee to put their plastic figures on. ... Thanks to GBT for asking the questions!
