The Guild Ball: Kick Off! Project

Almost as soon as I decided to start playing Guild Ball Steamforged Games announced their new starter set: Kick Off!. As much as I was interested in playing the Fishermen Guild and starting right away the allure of a starter set was too much for me.

I had to wait until Christmas before I received my copy but I started painting it almost immediately.

I primed my first miniature December 25th and hope to paint the two starter teams in three months.  This means by the end of March 2017 I will have two fully painted 6-player teams: the Brewers and the Masons.
