This one has just hopped onto the radar, and being a fan of Fantasy Football I was immediately hooked. See what you think of some of the artwork for new game coming this year, Guild Ball.
Here’s the run down…
“The game has been built from the ground up using modern design principles and philosophy resulting in a game that is supremely intuitive to learn and yet possesses vast depths of complexity and tactical choices. Success comes with carefully constructed ‘plays’ and counter ‘plays’ with emphasis on anticipation, positioning and resource management.”
“We have assembled a highly talented development team comprising creative and art talent from video games development, highly competitive tournament players and painters, and one of the rising stars in British sculpting.”
“We have sourced cutting edge digital pipelines to bring the highest quality miniatures to the game. We are also passionate about bringing modern business models to the world of war gaming and will be launching with a ‘free-to-play’ approach by providing a fully digital rulebook for free, planned to be regularly updated with errata and game balancing tweaks where needed to ensure you have the best possible experience.”
…and to make things cooler they have some neat ideas for teams too. See what you think of the Fisherman and Mortician’s Guild artwork that they previewed over on Facebook.
This is all looking very cool indeed and I am looking forward to seeing more teams, rules explanations and much more from this game. If the miniatures end up looking as cool as the artwork then we’re in for some stunning pieces.
I’d keep an eye on this one.
