Guildball Batrep #3 – Butchers vs. Morticians

Guildball Batrep #3 – Butchers vs. Morticians
   Welcome back for another Batrep.  I hope you enjoyed the holidays.  We have, but we're excited to get back into the games.  Adam's Butchers showed up, as did my Morticians.  Between borrowing a friend's and getting my own, I'd snuck a handful of Mortician games in while this is Adam's first round with the Butchers.  In light of that, we probably...

Update for 2017

Update for 2017
It's been a while since I've posted on the blog and there's a good reason for it. I was blessed with my second daughter in August and have since used my free time for the hobby and not the blog. I hope to remedy this in 2018, but I thought I'd update you on what I've been up to hobby-wise since my last post. Tournaments I've played in two tournamen...

Guildball for the New Guys - Surviving your Opponent's Next Activation

Guildball for the New Guys - Surviving your Opponent's Next Activation
  In the last New Guys article, we covered surviving your own activation.  Getting through a charge or an attack without getting sidelined and wasting an activation.  Today, we get to deal with the repercussions of your opponent's next activation, and how you can be the one to sideline and waste their activation for a change.   We'll rehash a coupl...

Guildball Batrep #2 – Blacksmiths vs. Brewers

Guildball Batrep #2 – Blacksmiths vs. Brewers
  We got next to no feedback on the previous Battle Report, so clearly we're meant to do more.  Or we enjoy it more than you do and your feedback is impervious to our pats on eachother's backs.  Either way, we're back.  Still Adam and still me, JD.   Today's matchup is Adam playing his Butchers if he can assemble them in time, or another crack at t...

Guildball for the New Guys - Knowing enough about the other team to get through an activation

Guildball for the New Guys - Knowing enough about the other team to get through an activation
  There were a lot of rough moments for me in my early wargaming days, and still are some even now.  I had another round of them when I started playing Guildball.  It seemed like I had to take a "Gotcha" on the chin before I'd remember them.  Things like charging into Obulus with literally anything other than Mallet and remembering he has Unpredict...

Bloodbowl Head couch?

Bloodbowl Head couch?
Trying out an idea here, not sure if it works. But most likely this will be my couch model for my badland rockerz team. It’s a wip, based on a two-part silicone mould clay and a bad pun. Ive also made moulds for my rock troll, in proper rtv silicone. Will try some casting in a few days when they have cured. Apart from this, rest of stuff focuses on...

Guildball Batrep - Blacksmiths vs. Farmers - 6 December 2017

Guildball Batrep - Blacksmiths vs. Farmers - 6 December 2017
   Hey folks, this will be the first of a new series of articles from Diceotfirstdegree and published on MidwestWargaming. If you've been following DotFD since the Warmachine days, you've already seen a lot of my batreps since that was most of my content. Guildball takes a bit more to write up though, and a lot more pictures, so I've really avoided...

Statistical Analysis of Guildball: Season 3 updates - All Guilds Overview

Statistical Analysis of Guildball: Season 3 updates - All Guilds Overview
  I'm really spamming this formula, aren't I?  There's one more too, the Hunters.  That's only 4 new players and they don't change the statlines that much, although their playbooks contain more momentous options.  Nobody cares about those guys though.   The Blacksmiths and Farmers are upon us.  While most of the Farmers were in the book, the Blacks...

Statistical Analysis of Guildball: Season 3 updates – The Blacksmiths

Statistical Analysis of Guildball: Season 3 updates – The Blacksmiths
  For a holiday week, this is a ton of articles, but once I've got momentum I can't quit or none of it will ever be completed.  Plus, the Blacksmiths are up and going and this is stuff I'm curious about too.  A lot of people have said that Steamforged is on other side of the seesaw this go around.  The Hunters flopped on release and failed to sell ...

Statistical Analysis of Guildball: Season 3 updates - The Farmers

Statistical Analysis of Guildball: Season 3 updates - The Farmers
  I'd say the update is somewhat overdue, except that we only just got the final Farmer card spoiled this last weekend.  As quickly as Steamforged modifies the game, or rather, as sporadic as the updates are, a true figure analysis is going to always be behind.  In fact, in compiling the Farmers and Blacksmiths (Coming soon), I didn't even bother t...

Cam Dub V - the results

Cam Dub V - the results
This weekend I went to one of my favourite Blood Bowl tournaments - the Cambridge Double Trouble.  It's a two-day tournament where you play in a two-man team - so I teamed up with my mate Andrew again.  Usually I try to pick a team I haven't used before so I can paint up a team and use them - but the Cam Dub has an unusual skill selection pack wher...

Norse star players completed

Norse star players completed
I've had the last remnants of my Norse Blood Bowl team needing some attention since 2014.  I had painted Zara the Slayer and Helmut Wulf but not based them - and I put some basecoats down on Wilhelm Chaney and Icepelt Hammerblow and then put them aside when I needed to concentrate on a different project.  After painting my Underworld team recently,...

FoodBowl 2017

FoodBowl 2017 ! This is a great event for a great cause! 4 player Blood Bowl, 1,250 gold teams and it brings together the two disparate groups of Blood Bowl players in the Vancouver area, so we get to meet some new people. ‚ Obviously, I brought Skaven which I thought were a good top pick — they have some great speed (since the current event rules ...

The Concept Behind a Guildball Lineup

The Concept Behind a Guildball Lineup
  Guildball's a weird game when it comes to the genre it fits in.  Technically, it's a tabletop miniatures game.  Most of the players (as of right now, but the demographic is changing) come from a tabletop wargaming background like Warmachine or 40k so it kind of fits into that category at the moment.  It's certainly the experience that the high-le...

Blood Bowl – Glart in progress

By Craig, on November 5th, 2017 This model is so fucking rad. Some of the FW Blood Bowl models are hit or miss , so I’m super stoked to be able to support their continued creation of Blood Bowl content by buying Glart, my little Fatty McRatty! Since I received him on the Friday before the tournament, I basically...
