Mob football is a game generally played between neighbouring towns and villages on feast days (hence the popularity). Players on opposing teams clash to control a leather-wrapped inflated pig's bladder and attempt to kick it into the opponent’s goal. Over the years, rudimentary leagues and tournaments have sprung up; there have even been some national level games between some city states.
The powerful Guilds of the land have taken advantage of the huge popularity of the sport as another means to control the masses. They invested vast sums of money; creating professional Guild sponsored teams and structured leagues. The public went crazy as the game was elevated to new heights of spectacle. Guild Ball was born amidst a blaze of interest and publicity and with it, a whole new business and revenue stream for the Guilds. Games are now played out in front of vast crowds of fans, whilst behind the scenes the results can mean fortunes are won or lost on the kick of a ball.

From the outset, the brief for Guild Ball miniatures focused on two key areas; minis that were inspiring to paint but also imminently use-able as gaming pieces.
To achieve this, we have teamed up with the most exciting sculpting talent we could find and the best miniature manufacturer in the UK. We then added a cutting-edge digital pipeline using the very latest in 3D printing technology to deliver outstanding results.
Every miniature is carefully considered in terms of pose, dynamics, the variety of textures, the availability of paint surface area (for freehand, team colours etc.) as well as fully supporting the look and feel of the Guild Ball setting. We are very proud of the exciting miniatures across the entire range!
