Steamforged Previews Fissure and Mule for Miner's Guild

Here we get a look at the last couple figures for the Miner's Guild for Guild Ball, the minor guild for the Engineer's Guild.
Seriously: Guild, guild, guild, guild, guild... You type it and say it in your head so much that the word just starts to sound weird.

Anyway... it includes a tank. Because that seems legit for a fantasy sports game. It worked for Blood Bowl.

New Nurgle Blood Bowl Team Available to Order From Forge World

I'm not entirely sure how effective a giant bloated slug-thing would be in a game of Blood Bowl. Seems like it wouldn't really be able to keep up with the action all too well. But that's for you to work out on the pitch. A new Nurgle team, including a new Rotspawn, is available to order from Forge World.

Steamforged Posts Guild Ball Errata and Rulebook Update

Games are continually evolving. As players get a chance to work through the rules and figures, there's always the potential to find something that's not working as intended, or is more powerful, or less powerful than the designers wanted. As such, updating things is a good way to go. Steamforged has just done that with Guild Ball and posted up the results.

Along with that, today's the official realease of the Miner's Guild as well as the four new captains that have been previewed.

Steamforged has the next preview up for the Miner's Guild, who are the Minor Guild for the Engineer's Guild in Guild Ball. Guild, guild, guild, guild, guild, guild, guild. I just wanted to type that word out some more. Anyway, along with the new preview for Spade, they've also started taking pre-orders for the team. But that's not all they're taking pre-orders for, as they are also getting names down for those that want the first four previewed extra Captains as well.

Steamforged Previews New Hunter's Captain

Another day, another preview for the upcoming captains in Guild Ball. In this instance, it's the Hunter's Guild. They're getting a captain that, on appearances alone, looks to really play into the "setting traps" aspect of the faction. Since that's the way I like to play them, I'm certainly excited about the prospects.

Steamforged Announces New Captains Coming for Guild Ball

The major guilds in Guild Ball only have two captains apiece. So it can sometimes feel like a "well, I don't like that one, so I'm forced to use this one, even though I'm not a fan of them, either" at times. It's looking like Steamforged will be rectifying that, giving everyone a 3rd pick, as they've announced they're coming out with new Captain minis.

Steamforged Previews Spade for Miner's Guild

The Miner's Guild is the Minor Guild for the Engineer's Guild.

Guild, Guild, Guild. I just like typing Guild.

Anyway, they are apparently going to be a very shifty team, able to get just about anywhere they need to on the pitch, partially because the ground is like Swiss cheese and thus, full of holes. In this preview, we get a look at Spade, who looks to be arguably one of the better Strikers in the game, along the likes of Flint and Angel.
