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?

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.

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.

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?
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
