I have been a little sidetracked lately with another project of mine, but I finally got around to finish up another model for my son’s Hunters Guild. I have 5 of the 6 models now completed that he gave me to paint, the last one left being the second Captain ‘Skatha’. Today we have a Striker for his Guild, ‘Egret’.
Steamforged Games announced over the weekend the contents of the SteamCon Swag Box. SteamCon UK is taking place this weekend November 17th-19th and SteamCon USA will be December 1st-3rd (Chicago area).
I have not gotten in a game of Guild Ball in quite awhile, but I am looking forward to SteamCon. My oldest son is flying in from Arizona for the event, and I plan on getting in a lot of friendly games with him trying out all my different guilds.
Anyway’s back to the contents of the Swag Box.
1x Metal Skulk Miniature
1x Old Jake's Coaster
1x Guild Tattoo Sheet
6x Random Guild Cards (Yes, they're the new errata cards)
1x Union in Chains Ball
1x SteamCon Goal Token
1x SteamCon Bottle Opener
2x SteamCon Bang Sticks
1x SteamCon Lanyard & SteamCon Ribbon
Steamforged also surprised us with an announcement that the next two 6-man boxes for the Farmer’s and Blacksmith’s Guild will be sold at SteamCon with a strict 1 per customer. Good thing I have 2 son’s coming with me.
I have to admit, I am starting to slack a little on the Hunter’s Guild models for my son. This past weekend I got a little side tracked with a model railroading project that I am working on in my basement (nothing to elaborate, just something for the top of my bar). Anyway’s last week I was able to finish the fourth model for the Hunter’s Guild that my son provide me. ‘Ulfr’, a Striker for the Guild.
It is the end of week 4 for The Union in Chains and some of the match ups are getting really really close. There is not much more time to get games recorded. Next week, Week 5 will be the final week (plus games played at SteamCon UK) will decide the fate of the Veteran players. I really hope the Mason’s can come back against the Brewer’s. The original sculpt for the Mason’s not too many players liked it (including myself), but I do like the new sculpt for Veteran Decimate, so now the Mason players are trying to dig themselves out of a hole.
I am cheering on Mason’s, Fisherman. Engineer’s and Mortician Guilds.
A sneak peek image of the next Farmer’s Guild box set popped on Twitter late yetsterday afternoon and the estimated street date is early January 2018. I am really hopping that this box will be an early release at SteamCom USA at the beginning of December. Either case, I know what models will be early in the queue for me come 2018. Another ball-marker, goal and terrain piece is also included with this set.
It’s the start of a new month, so I thought I’d better get a post in. Last Friday October 20th, Steamforged Games released the newest set of 6 models and this time it was for the Brewer’s Guild. It seemed to be a farely quiet release for them (probably with getting ready for both SteamCon’s and the global event The Union in Chains), anyways I was able to get an order in with an online retailer. With a slight shipping delay (I was in no rush) I finally received my package this week. ‘Sing When You’re Winning’ for the Brewer’s Guild complements the original 6 from the Kick-Off Starter Set bringing the Guild count to 12 models. The box set consists of: Esters, PintPot, Veteran Spigot, Quaff, Mash and Stoker. With this Brewer’s box set (not counting limited edition models and kickstarter models) I now have every model for every Guild, not all painted, but we are getting there. Having every model painted will definitely be a goal for 2018.
