Nothing as such. If you're going for the n18 version the guilds have specific teams outlined in the book of peril, but these are just one version of the possibility. I should think anything goes, but you'll be best to provide some good backstory for anything that is new!
Anything goes.

I do have a half-built "Fungus Explorator Dominus" with a retinue of carriers for all kinds of, well, hive fungi. While this may sound interesting to some of you, apparently it's against the rules to use any of these. But no problem at all.

I think I will have a go at the Iron Guild (Arms and Ammunition). Wanted to do an Iron Mercator anyway.

I'll have a look into the Book when I'm back home to see what it says about their usual group size.
Mercator, Scribe/Assistant, Bodyguard like the other guilder retinues?

EDIT:
Anything goes.
That makes Sobek a joyful Sump Croc !

You really want to see what I imagine a Fungus Explorator is, don‘t you? :)

We‘ll see. I think the Iron Guilder will be easier to finish within the given timeframe, those Fungus Carrier have a lot of details to paint and the Explorator Dominus is basically just a mock-up kind of thingy at the moment.


Alright, so Book of Peril basically confirmed the „anything goes“ thing. There are rules for Iron Guild Hive Scum supporting allied Gangs, so I‘ll do at least one of them to go with the Mercator.

The Iron Guild Mercator and his assistant will be heavily inspired by the artwork in the book, which looks like it‘ll be a ton of fun:

Absolutely. Very interested to see.

Now that you have mentioned it, even if you don’t go with it for yor entry, you have to post* it.

*by “post”, I don’t mean share pics, but to send the miniature(s) directly to me without passing go.

Too bad I did not see this two weeks ago...

We‘ll see If I‘ll be able to finish them in time.

Here‘s my starting point:

Will be converting that nice Blackstone Fortress Navigator for the Guilder himself, as this seems to be the best body I can find for my concept


And recycle those for Iron Guild Hive Scum (already started converting)


If any of this is against Comp rules, please let me know asap.

So I'm thinking that I will be going with the guild that specialises in providing servitors and bionics.

Do you guys recon that would be specialist enough a trade to warrant it's own guild? I reckon they would have good links with the adeptus mechanicus.

This will give me plenty of opportunity to use my gun servitor, and the adeptus mechanicus transport and convert up a few more cybernetic looking guys.

I can see them in competition for "raw materials" with the slaver guild, possibly having to purge rogue servitors ( still one of the coolest concepts in the badlands)

Any none got a gift for coming up with names?

Sadly my ambot is already under construction so that's out, like the idea of a scenario that is a cross between the caravan raid and a prison break with gangs trying to retrieve either a member of their gang or a servitor / prisoner who has been rounded up who has vital intelligence before they get lobotomized

So, I think I'm in, now I have a somewhat better idea of what's involved.

As I said in my plog, I'm aiming to build some wizards anyway (primarily for Frostgrave, but should work for a variety of other fantasy settings of course). It seems like these should fit the bill - e.g. a necromancer, apprentice, and maybe a raised zombie could count as my 'corpse guild'.

Best kind of challenge, for me, is one where what I wanted to do already seems to fit the remit...

Yakkers.

Just to clarify you can use previously started projects but you need to be VERY CLEAR that you are doing that.

You also need to ask the Tribes forgiveness and usually complete a challenge i.e. sit for 8 hours in meditation whilst wearing a pink cowboy hat! This has happened in the past!

Obviously it’s all on your Yak honour, no dashing Orange haired Troll Enforcers in makeup will turn up at your house with a tape measure and a stopwatch, well hopefully......

I have a couple of ideas rattling around in my big empty skull, but I haven't gotten around to picking up the Book of Peril yet. I see that a typical guilder group is made up of a guilder, assistant, and one or two bodyguards. Are there restrictions on their arms and equipment? Could one of the bodyguards be an ogryn?

It's your sandbox, the current guilds have set equipment and skills. From my read of the fluff pretty much every commodity you can imagine has a guild controling it's sale and movement. A guild that specialises in off world abhumans and aliens (ambulls) etc would be entirely possible in my head.

Of course - could see an Ogryn Bodyguard for a Slave guilder for example. Or for some Iron Guilder specialised in providing, say, House Goliath with scrap metal. Or Guild of Coin - will probably do that myself at a later point in time, got that Ogre Paymaster Manester miniature hiding somewhere...

My Iron Guilder is about 70% done (making the miniature, that is, no paint on it yet). The hardest part will probably be the cherub assistant, because I want it so badly! Doesn‘t seem okay to skip it now.

If nothing else, they would definitely be an offshoot of whatever guild runs the medical game.

Currently hunting down the bits on ebay.... Thinking that it could be a mobile repair shop / mobile servitor "making" facility. Add some guards that are part skitikari part genestealer cult hazard suits and the gun bot and I'm away. Not sure about the "guilder" though.

GSC doc, replace the head and hand. Don't do it fun and campy like... I forgot, he posted the other day. Do it more sinister, maybe add some Wrack bits. Thats the first thing that comes to my mind

And there he is after some putty work. Gonna add another row of bullets and start on the cherub when my bitz order has arrived.

Is it okay to post work in progress snapshots here or should I come back once that thing is ready for primer?

You can post updates here, but it's normally best if you do the in depth step by step in your own dedicated plog, then periodic updates here, so we can see a snapshot of everyones progress here and dig in their personal threads for the nitty gritty!
