Hi Guys, time for something slightly different today. As of about 10 minutes ago, I have finally finished painting the last member of my Fishermen Guild (that I own).
For those who don't know, Guild ball is a medieval football game set in a pseudo-historical world. It is similar to Bloodbowl but without the Xenos species.

Guild Ball was originally a Kickstarter from Steamforged games and has really taken off all over the world. There are more and more tournaments being held as the game continues to grow.
The Fishermen Guild are one of the first guilds which were announced. These guys are the Barcelona of the Guildball world, they just love to play the beautiful game the way it was supposed to be played. When I was looking to get into Guild Ball, I went for models that sounded and looked coolest. After much perusing of the online shop, I settled on the Fishermen. Who could turn down a guild who could UNLEASH THE KRAKEN!!
Ahem...on with the pictures :)

So these models are an absolute pain to assemble, some of the worst ones I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Some of the contact areas for gluing/ connecting to the base leave much to be desired but once you get past that, they are fantastic to paint.
I have really enjoyed painting the fishermen guild, it has given me a reason to improve my flesh painting technique. Next up for them will be the players I am missing; Greyscales, Jac and the new player Sakana. I may also get a few union members just to increase the variety.
As you have seen above, I also own the Masons Guild. These guys are great all-rounders and wear a lot of armour which makes them tough to beat up. I will probably try and get these done before I get the next lot of fishermen players.
Keep an eye out for another Showcase within the next month or so.
I hope you enjoyed this brief showcase of my Fishermen Guild. If you would to learn to play, or come to MSWG and have a game, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be happy to arrange something.
Happy Wargaming Guys!!
