No matter how much testing a company does, whenever their product goes out into "the wild," there's bound to be things that are found that could have possibly been better in the design. That definitely holds true for minis games that have quite a lot of different moving parts associated with them. Well, thankfully, many companies look to fix these issues. Steamforged, for example, has released a new Guild Ball Errata. Make sure you're playing with the right rules!
If you were thinking that there wouldn't be a single sheep or goat as part of the Shepherd's Guild, you would be mistaken. They've got themselves a big one. It's Ram, and we get a look at just how they work on the pitch in this preview.
Sheep constantly grow their wool. If it's not sheared off, it could actually cause harm to the sheep due to overheating and other effects. So, if you've got a flock of sheep, you need someone to make sure they're cleanly cut. That's where Shearer comes in. He's the next Shepherd's Guild figure to get previewed for Guild Ball. Let's take a look.
When you're talking about a guild of Shepherds, you're going to expect to see lambs. But Lamb for the Shepherd's Guild in Guild Ball is just some young sheep, barely able to stand. Nope, he's a football master and you can get a preview of him here.
If you're wanting a team in Guild Ball that lets you have a puppy on the field, you have a couple choices including the Butcher's Guild and Hunter's Guild. Soon, another doggo-friendly crew will be hitting the pitch. The Shepherd's Guild has a pair of squaddies, Hook and Crook that are the goodest of squadies. Check them out here.
If you were thinking that the Shepherd's Guild's mascot would be a sheepdog or maybe a ram or something, you would be mistaken. Their mascot has a more porcine nature. It's Babe, the pig that thinks it's a sheepdog. In this preview, we get a look at just what they'll bring to the table (the game table, not the dinner table).
The Captain is the head of the team. By looking at what they can do, you can get a good idea of how the team works, overall. What they emphasize is what everyone else will emphasize. So, getting a look at the Captain for the Shepherd's Guild, the new Minor Guild coming out for Guild Ball, is a good way to see what everyone on the team will be like. So, let's take a look.
The Shepherd's Guild is the next team that will be coming out for Guild Ball. They're the Minors for the Farmer's Guild, giving that team a couple new options as well in the process. If you're wanting to get this new team, you can go over and put your name down on the list to get it now. Be the first gamer on your block with these figures when they're released.
Greebo Games had been making their Cutiemals fantasy sports teams for a bit now. Now, they're doing something just slightly different. They've got a new Kickstarter campaign up for another pair of teams. But these are a bit more undead than usual. They're the Necromals and they're ready to hit the pitch.
Been a while since we've had some real Guild Ball news, but the game's still out there being worked on by Steamforged. Most Guilds have a Minor Guild associated with them, but there's still a few without. The Farmer's Guild is one, but that's going to be rectified soon. Steamforged has announced the Shepherd's Guild (they make amazing pies) and is giving us a little look into how they'll work.
This weekend, the American Football season comes to an end with the Super Bowl. It seems a pretty good time to celebrate sports in all its form, including using toy soldiers on your tabletop. And Mantic is celebrating pretty hard with their Super Mega Cup Sale going on now. You want to get DreadBall for a lot cheaper than usual? Now's your chance. And to make sure you're using the best rules, they've also posted an updated Errata and FAQ.
Steamforged is looking to bring back some Guild Ball teams that've been out of print for a while, doing them up in new box sets with new sculpts and the figures made out of new material. In this instance, it's The Order, what the Union turned to after the church took hold. You can order this new box set now.
Get ready for trouble! And prepare to make it double!
Two new contenders are stepping into the Aristeia arena. They're Moonchild and Lei Gong and they'll bring a wealth of new options for when you're building your team for the game. In this preview, we get a look at their sculpts as well as their cards, so you can know jus what these new contestants will be bringing to the field.
Summer is in full swing down in the Southern Hemisphere. But even up here in the frozen north, it can be summer. Or, it can be soon. Forge World is taking pre-orders for Gloriel Summerbloom, a new elven Star Player for Blood Bowl. Go get your name on the list to get this new figure right when it's released.
The folks over at One Page Rules have been busy, little bees. They're giving you a special holiday gift with six, yes, six new sets of miniatures game rules. There's a little bit of everything. There's sci-fi fleets. There's fantasy sports. There's modern-era. There's fantasy. If you like playing with miniatures, chances are good there's a rules set you'll be interested in.
You wouldn't think that a turtle would be a good addition to a sports team. But the Union isn't like most sports teams. The Union is getting itself a new captain in the form of Captain Greede. You can already pre-order this model, but what does he do on the pitch? Let's find out.
Like happens so often with Forge World, it's two ends of the spectrum with their pre-orders for the week. On one side, you have a quick and nimble Blood Angles jump-pack squad for 40k. On the other side, there's the big and lumbering Ogre team expansion set for Blood Bowl. Sci-fi versus fantasy sports. Take your pick (even if it's both).
Three teams are getting new captains, letting them catch up with some of the others. They're the Alchemists, the Farmers, and The Union. In this preview, we get a look at Soma/Pneuma. Why the two names and slash? Because this character changes during the course of the game, taking on a new persona for a bit. How does that work? Have yourselves a look.
New Captains will soon be making their way to the pitch for Guild Ball. The Farmer's and Alchemist's Guilds, along with The Union are finally getting their new additions. We've only seen what Festival does so far, but if you just can't control your excitement, you can go ahead and get your name on the list to get these new figures when they're released.
Apparently, Games Workshop was just like, "Well, we'll make it all available now" this weekend. There's a new Battletome for Age of Sigmar. There's a new book for the Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game. There's a new team for Blood Bowl. And there's new planes for Aeronautica Imperialis. And besides that, there's all sorts of minis kits you can order, including figures, terrain, and more. Plus dice, magazines, deluxe versions, and on and on and on and on. Might be easier to just say, "check it out."
Most harvest festivals might just be over with, but Steamforged has one more coming, as the Farmer's Guild for Guild Ball is getting themselves a new captain soon. Her name's Harvest and she's sure to give players a lot of new play styles to try out on the pitch. Have yourselves a look.
Guild Ball runs on its Game Plan Deck. Players get a handful of these cards at the start of the game and they don't just deal with every turn's initiative, but also has a special ability that comes into play that round. The game is getting an updated Game Plan Deck, and Steamforged is showing off the cards. Have yourself a look.
Board games aren't just for nerds. You can be a sports fan and love your board games as well. And I'm sure many of you out there are fans of the most popular sport on the planet, football (or "soccer" to those of you here with me in the US). Fantasy Sports are also extremely popular. How well can you do if you're the one in charge of the teams' roster? Find out in Superclub, a new footbal management board game up on Kickstarter now.
Scattershot set of pre-orders from Games Workshop this week. Though their main banner was about the new Warhammer Underworlds set, called Beastgrave - The Grymwatch, I'm most excited about the new Lizardmen Blood Bowl team. Go Pangaea Punishers! *waves little flag with my own team's logo on it* There's also new Blacsktone Fortress sets you can pick up. I did say that it was scattershot after all.
Yesterday tried to take a while. It really did. The first half of the day, I remember going, "Wait, it's not even 9 yet?" However, things eventually picked up. I hope your Wednesday was good, too. Now we're here at Weekend Eve Eve. I'm still pumped for the weekend. Got D&D coming up. Hopefully you have some gaming planned. But even if you don't, we need to get your gaming table looking good. Quick TC today, so let's get to it.
Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Miner's Guild Pitch Available From Deep-Cut Studio
