Steamforged Previews Azimuth for Navigator's Guild

Every team in Guild Ball has at least 1 "big guy." Usually on a 40mm base. Good defenses. Good HP total. Can usually dish out a bit of damage. For the Navigator's Guild, that's Azimuth. While the team as a whole might be about maneuvering, Azimuth is there to hit people. Sure, there's still some movement shenanigans to be found, but he's ready to smack people around for the team.

SFG Announces Horizon Zero Dawn: The Board Game

Steamforged is looking to become "The company that makes games based on popular video game series" it seems. Obviously, there's nothing wrong with that (though the last video game I played regularly was FFXII, so I'm totally out of the loop about these properties). They've got Dark Souls. They've got Resident Evil. Now they're headed to Horizon Zero Dawn. They've announced a new board game based on it, as well as shown off a pair of mini renders.

Steamforged Previews Windfinder For The Navigator's Guild

Every ship needs a captain. Same can be said for a Guild Ball team. In this case, the two are the same person. Windfinder is the Navigator's Guild captain both aboard the ship and on the pitch. The captain also tends to define how the team works. So, how do the Navigators work? Let's take a look.

Steamforged Announces New Big League For Guild Ball

Sports, generally speaking, are meant to be played as a tourney or as part of a league. You have your event or season, and the teams play games/matches against each-other over the course of it. For Guild Ball, that was the Big League, originally released in Season 2. Well, the game has changed quite a bit since then, and now Steamforged is updating the Big League for Season 4.

Steamforged Previews Fathom for Navigator's Guild

In every Minor Guild, there's two players that can work with the Major Guild the team's tied to. Fathom is one of the two for the Navigator's Guild, being able to play up to the Fisherman's Guild, my personal favorite Guild. On that team, Angel is one of my favorite players, and almost always hits the pitch when I play. So, when I see that Fathom works very well with Angel, I'm like, "yes. This is a thing that pleases me." Check out all she can do in this new preview.

In this first preview, we check out Horizon. Don't let the front of the card confuse you, the back's where it's at.

Steamforged Previews Season 4 Guild Ball

A couple years ago, I had a whole thing about a "year of new editions" as various games were getting updates. I really should've been doing that this year, too. X-Wing, Pathfinder, Age of Sigmar all got new editions, just to name a few. Another game that's upping the edition number this year is Guild Ball. It's coming this fall, and seeing as it's so soon, Steamforged has posted up their first preview of what we can expect.

Steamforged Previews Veteran Cinder For Guild Ball

The Blacksmith's Guild is unlike any other Guild in Guild Ball. They don't have a dedicated Captain. They don't have mascots. It's just pairs of Masters and Apprentices. But even with time, not all Apprentices become Masters immediately. Some have to work at it. In this case, we get a look at Veteran Cinder, who is still an Apprentice in the Guild.
