Returning to GB after about a year away (only had a couple games then) after not really playing since s1 with Brewers (basic team plus Stoker). Even back in s1 I only played maybe 8 games, so I was never an accomplished player, but my team is fully painted and I loved the system. Recently bought back in with Falconers (pre order), some terrain and a pitch on the way. Hoping to not get blown away with 12-0 and 12-2 results vs a local meta full of tourney types. Any tips? Anyone in the Nottingham UK area that isn’t already a tournament goer? Dont get me wrong, I know it’s good to learn from someone better than u and that means losing a fair few games, but it’s harder to draw learning points while getting annihilated.
So I had been peripherally aware of Guildball for the past several months as a few of my local Warmahordes junkies converted, then after Adepticon it seemed like everything really ramped up for Guild Ball and I decided to finally at least look at the website. As soon as I saw the art and models and read the main rule book I knew I had to get into it. I waffled on picking a guild for what felt like ages (and I still have rosters made up for just about every team) but then I went in to a local shop yesterday and finally got a demo game from the local pundit and I played Fish into Alchs. I had been leaning Fish, with Union as my runner up, and as soon as I actually played the Fish I knew they weren't for me; I like to scrum too much and my fishes got destroyed by conditions (Shark is not happy being Blinded, not at all) and Midas doing Midas things. So today I went back to the shop and bought a Union starter, built it, and painted Decimate. A few hours later I played my first game with my models against Brewers (Tapper starter w/Hooper and Friday) and won 8-4, with Blackheart scoring twice (including a first turn goal! He's such a beast!) So I'm pretty happy with my decision, and I'm excited to expand with Coin, Avarisse and Greede and Mist (and Alts of VRage and Hemlocke I think) I'm curious how the rest of the community got into the game of Guild Ball and into Union? Do you think my 8 man plan is reasonable for a beginning player?
