GB resolution for –18?

Recommended Posts

So what are your GB-related goals, ambitions, dreams & so on for 2018? For my part, I've just started painting up the Blacksmiths, setting my beloved Shark team aside. For 2018 year I:

 

– will only play painted, and

– will only play Blacksmiths.

- Buy all minor guilds (4+ this year??)

- Paint all minor guilds (I mean I’ve painted all the other guilds)

- Play at least one tournament (baby time pressure)

- Beg time to go to SteamCon 2018

Well at least 1 is doable, bet baby won’t let me achieve the others!

Slightly constrained by intended house move, but...

  • Going to paint up my Smoke Alchemists
  • Attend 2 or 3 tournaments in the first part of the year
  • Pick up Rat Catchers (presumably around the time of Salute)

Post house move, I'm going to be joining @EpicChrisin begging to be allowed to go to either British Champs or Steam Con

Acquire the rest of the Union models and then paint all of them

Finish painting my Alchemists, to include a modified Vitriol doing a bicycle kick

Go to a tournament

And find some more Guild Ball players in the greater LA area

1) Attend as many tournaments as possible

2) Improve my win rate with my Butchers

3) Get a second team all painted up

4) And then a third.....

1) Paint my teams

2) Play more games when time is available

3) Attempt a tournament

4) Not cry after getting destroyed at said tournament

  • Get events from East Asia and Africa on the Longshanks (to complete the set of continents).
  • Increase the Longshanks presence of South America, the Middle East, and Oceania.
  • Have a winning record (50% or higher) in tournament games.

... the third goal seems hardest by a significant margin.

Paint my Fishers, Blacksmiths and Hunters. 

Also hopefully finding a Guild that's actually fun to play as I'm seriously struggling with the Fish.

In order of priority:

  1. Finish painting Farmers.
  2. Finish last 3 Masons models and goal.
  3. Get hold of, base and paint a Masons insert for my Wolves Glade tray set.
  4. Buy metals I need before they all sell out - Hunters of Winters Moon, Strings Of The Spirit Weaver, Pirates Return.
  5. Finish off my Union and their goal (deciding how to paint Coin has completely destroyed my progress on this).
  6. Work out how to play on clock/get through an event without timing out once.
  7. Find a way to persuade my wife to finish painting her Hunters (using the Falconer's box as a bribe might help...)
  8. Paint Crucible.
  9. Base, put together and paint Morticians.

Ideally I should squeeze in painting a Chaos Dwarf Blood Bowl team in there as well...

As a newer player, my goals are less intense than some of yours, but:
1) Play at least one game every other week. Ideally, two a game night but get in the reps to git gud
2) Play each Captain I own at least once throughout the year
3) Get all models and terrain painted to satisfaction and finish out my two guilds.
4) Don't buy a new player until I've finished painted/sealing the the unpainted ones I've already got
5) Attend at least one tournament outside of my home city.

Guild Ball bug hit me hard in the final months of 2017 and I am looking for more more more... would like to get much better but that just comes with time and practice.

  • Would like to attend a tournament of some kind every couple of months if possible.
  • Meet more of the great players who love and play this game...starting with my Canadian neighbours in the western part of the nation.
  • 2-3 games a week...or more if I can get them.
  • Join a league or two or more during the year. 
  • Aid/Promote a resurgence/increase in the GB community in my area. Maybe apply for Pundit status... maybe...
  • Get all the guilds and paint them

I don't really have any resolutions as such, as a lot of what I want to depends too much on other people, but here's what I'd like to get done over the next year:

1. Play at least one minor guild. I'm intrigued by the Ratcatchers, but will undoubtedly love whatever the butchers minor guild is more. I'll have to wait and see what comes out.

2. Run a local league.

3. Get to a Potter's Guild event (I keep saying I'll go to one of these but have yet to manage it). I suppose this one is a resolution.

4. Is a secret thing.

We all make this promise.. Until we realize it's a lie we tell ourselves and we just don't buy it anymore. :D
