Very nice, although I'm afriad the competition rules (https://yaktribe.games/community/threads/yaktribe-competition-rules.2785/) require entries to be started during the competition period - so, you'll have to get started on the next guild!
Sorry! Missed that!
Time to start a new Guild then!
Should we delete the old message?
(Note to self: start reading before posting)




Do the guilder groups in the book have specific roles/character types described that can be played in game? If so, would someone be kind enough to briefly describe them?
In the book all the different representatives of the Guilds are organised in the same way: the Guild Procurator is the leader of this "mini-faction", and his/her retinue consists of an attendant (Guild Factotum) and one or two bodyguards.

The main Guilds groups on the Book of Peril are

There are some other ones, like the Iron Guild (weapon dealers, their representatives are a bunch of hive scum armed to the teeth), the Air Guild (they control the humungous fans and vents that keep the air moving through the Hive) and the Light Guild (they control the electricity and are basically arch-rivals of the Promethium Guild)

Yeah, definitely don't delete.

You might want to start a painting log in the miniatures and terrain section to show off progress on your entry and any other work that you want to share.

The Transportation Guild has some wheels ...



Need an inspirational figure to sit/stand in the forward deck with a BIG gun to keep those pesky Coin Guild at bay. They also annoy the Water Guild among others. ;) :p

Looking to also grab some outriders to convert up as well.

Bring out yer dead!


Big antigrav guy will be towing the cart, bell ringer in tow.


Looking for suggestions for the cart bed itself - how would you build it? Simple flat bed, sides, or something more complex? Any technology? Corpses?

@Fold will you be putting a weight in the cart or stick the cart to a heavier base so the antigrav guy won’t need a flying base?

Unsure if the Floater’s gun size might detract from the floatyness, maybe giving it a smaller weapon (or even something like a ball n chain) and maybe having the rotary cannon elsewhere?

Can’t comment about what structure or adornments for the cart - haven’t decided what I might do yet ;-)

Yeah the idea is there’ll be no need for a flying base once finished - probably by making the cart sufficiently heavy.

I’ll see once the piece comes together about the gun size, but do like the idea of a ball and chain to emphasise the floatyness, so will have a play with that tomorrow!

You guys are being WAY more inventive than I am!
I can't make the thing actually crawl (I don't have the base model, a 3d printer, or a multi axis mill) but I have filled all the appropriate gaps and removed all the mold lines. Basically, everything looks good from up to about 3 inches/80mm (I don't like some of the transitions on the fill and the thing was NOT expertly assembled, whacha gonna do) and I can maybe fill or use its a damage or rust, etc..

So you can see the final position I'm going for with the ramp and that I've fitted a sheet to it's back as it was just raw (also needed to shave the left over round bits for mold push off in the last stair) I forgot to include them but I have tabs cut to remount the stair/ramp. You can kinda see it but I cut in a line under the hatches at the front of the bed so they look like they open now. And the diamond plate you see there is just going to cover the old stuff.
Now, that leaves me the one weapon mount by the hatch, the rules don't call for the guilder caravan to be armed... so I'm thinking to leave it as a peg mount for other scenarios when vehicles become more of a thing.
All that said, I want to try and make the ramp functional and I feel like that might be the only way I'm going to make a splash with this stiff (and frankly inspirational) competition. Any other ideas or thoughts?
Oh @Fold I would suggest a wide topped cart with short sides, like a stretched and flattened mine cart.

Awesome, love it that there's some great ideas happening so quickly!

I'm going to a games day / swap meet today, hoping to find some bits and parts that will kickstart my own ideas!

Yes!
Acquired some good bits, Victoria Miniatures had a trade stand there and scavenging through their second rate casts boxes I got a few cool things to start something.
This is the start of the Guild of Coin retinue. 2x guards with a coin coffer (one ea with shotgun & long rifle as per book) and the beginnings of a scrivener, want to do a lot more with that one tho.... Then need to work out the main coin collector himself.
But it's a start!

Finally I'm in!
My Guild of Coin is starting to take shape too! Just received the Voidsmen (aka, Grovellers) this morning, and yesterday I bought Kal to use him as a base for the Skinflint (still don’t know what to do with Scabbs tho)

Hopefully this Wednesday I'll receive the Master of Coin and will start painting these guys.

On the other hand, a couple days ago I finished my Slavers Guild. It's not an entry to the comp, but maybe it would work as inspiration for someone:

What is this heresy? A Comp not sanctioned by the Troll King?!?!

All looks great so far - carry on.

Not sure if this is the time or place to mention this, but the other clones have escaped the submerged PLEASURECUBE, have set up business in Mankfester Dome, and lets just say, they aren’t best pleased that Number Ten is openly Trollsexual!...

Race, Gender, sexuality and species are a construct of our imperial overlords @CaptainDangerous don't let them stop you riding the orange rainbow. All Clones my pass freely through our lands. Make love not war!

As dowry we offer the Imperial Mint mine and all who toil in its confines, as long as the supply of pure mint continues to flow to the Agent Orange vats.

And YES we are back.

Love this.
Wanted to have a go at Guilders anyway, so why not now?

Any rule regarding the min./max. total number of models?
