Steamforged Posts New Miner's Preview, Taking Pre-Orders For Team and Captains

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.

Thursday Terrain Corner

The week is rolling along. Mine's been going by pretty quickly. Being busy will do that, I suppose. Lots of stuff going on, so the time goes by. Looking forward to the weekend. Not too much planned for me, but that's entirely the point. Sometimes you gotta just do nothing and be happy about that. But that doesn't mean that other weekends won't be filled with gaming, and that means wanting good-looking gaming tables.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Official Butcher's Guild Mat Available From Deep-Cut Studio, Dungeon Flagstones RPG Encounter PVC Mat Available From Loke Battlemats, Dust Town Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, and Hive City Arbitratorum Available From Tabletop Scenics.

This is the one that I was waiting for. The Fishermen's Guild is "my team" in Guild Ball. So, of course, I was nervous AF when Season 4 was announced. "How will my beloved team change?

Spoilers: Yes.

Steamforged Previews Season 4 Blacksmiths for Guild Ball

Another day, another preview. This time around, it's the Blacksmith's Guild for Season 4 of Guild Ball. One of the newer Guilds to the game, with a strange build mechanic where you take 3 Masters and 3 Apprentices, instead of the usual 1 Captain, 1 Mascot, 4 Squaddies. A very synergistic team, how did they fare in the update to S4? Go have yourself a look.

Steamforged Previews Veteran Siren For Guild Ball

The Fisherman's Guild is my guild of choice in Guild Ball. I love them because they're a pure goal-scoring team. There's dozens of good skirmish wargames out there, but extremely few good sports games out there. So that's what drew me to Guild Ball in the first place. So, when I see that the team is getting revamped, along with the game as a whole, I get naturally nervous. I love how they work now. What could be changed? Well, we get our first look at how they'll operate in Season 4 with a look at Veteran Siren.
