Guild Ball - Makin' Plans!


I've been following a game called Guild Ball for awhile now, since it was first posted on Kickstarter.  I chose not to back it for a couple of reasons, all of which had nothing to really do with Steamforge Games, but rather due to past experience backing games on KS.  Nevertheless, I've been super excited for this game since day 1!  Steamforge Games is a small company based in the UK, so it will take some before the game hits US shores, but I'm having a hard time containing myself!  I may look into buying a ton of stuff and seeing about having it shipped over just to get my hands on it sooner!  It has been a long, long, LONG time since I have been this excited and passionate about a game too, which is really refreshing.  There are a number of reasons why I'm excited, namely, I'm huge soccer fan,  Ive played it all of my life, up to a bit of indoor stuff in college, and it is the one sport I continue to follow to this day.  I'm also a bit of a fan of fantasy sports games, and I find every gamer should have at least one light, fun, sports game in their arsenal, that they can just pull out for a match every now and then.  As I'm sure many of you know, I am an avid planner, and one of the things I like to do when I start posting about a new game is to outline some of my plans.  So, below are just a few of my plans for Guild Ball, as well as showing off some of the teams and minis I like...

This Geek's Week...

Painted FoW Sherman, ready to invade Sicily alongside my Rangers!



It's been awhile since I've posted, and while this feels like a pretty long post, truthfully not a whole lot has been going on...

Updated FoW HG Panzerkompanie Pics...


  Recently, I took a few updated pics of my current Mid War/Late War German Flames of War army to share on my local Historical Miniatures Facebook Group and I thought I would share them here as well.  I'm still adding to them as well, with some Grenadiers, artillery, and Panzer III's still on the painting desk...

This Geek's Week... (The times are a changin')






I think I'm going to be doing things a bit differently moving forward.  I'm not truly "quitting" gaming, but with my work schedule, family, (and soccer season starting up soon) I will be drastically scaling the "geekery" back.  This means of course, no more "This Geek's Week..." unless I have something major to say.  Not sure if anyone will miss it, as I just kept stating the same things over and over: "Worked on minis.  Played daily games of Pokemon w/ my daughter.  Played GW2." yadda, yadda, yadda.  Sure, if something does actually happen, then I'll post it, I just don't expect anything to come up.  IF you actually read my weekly updates, enjoyed seeing what I did from week to week, please LET ME KNOW!  I'm more than willing to keep doing it, I just suspect a majority of people don't really have an opinion on it...

Until next time,

This Geek's Week...


a shot form my painting desk...


Hobby/modeling/miniatures:
- worked some on my Sherman's for FoW.  I also started working on the german Panzergrenadier and artillery elements from the Open Fire box set as well while I waited for the glue to dry on the last two Shermans.  Originally, I was going to keep them "clean" looking, but I then decided to go back and add the extra elements like baggage and such...


Board/Card Games:
- Played the usual daily games of Pokemon TCG with my daughter.

- Played a game of Rampage, and Battletech with my daughter.

- Messed around with my SAO deck for Weiss Schwarz, then played my first trial game.  My SAO deck lost to my Persona 4 deck, but not before getting it to lvl 2...

- Played a family game of Boss Monster, with my daughter winning...


Video Games:
- Played lots of War Thunder, both tanks and air...

- Played some GW2 on my Charr Engineer...

- Played a few rounds of the Pokemon TCG online with my daughter...


Reading:
- Taking a break from Sci-fi/Fantasy, I've started reading "An Army At Dawn" by Rick Atkinson, a WWII novel about the war in Tunisia.  I'm not too far into it, but so far I'm not getting into his writing style...

- I also picked up my 2nd issue of Wargames, Soldiers, and Strategy.  There is a nice little overview of SAGA C&C, and a few articles of interest here and there, but I'm still not sure of enough relevant content (to my interests) to warrant a subscription...


Lately, I've been toying around with notion of "do I really even need this hobby anymore?", and it has kind of put a bit of a downer on things lately... and not for the first time this month either.  Nothing seems to excite me, nothing grabs my interest and wont let go.  Not sure what that really says, or means, for my hobby time, but I just keep going through the motions looking for a spark of excitement.  I think I really gotta get out of the house and do something, but the weekends keep rolling by...
