First the map. I have the responsibility of coming up with a new map for the (losers of the) LIHeroscapers league to play at our final game. I've been thinking about it, but haven't sat down to put anything together yet. Last night I came up with a nice three-way map. It needs some balancing work, but it's a really nice up and down board, that really is divided into "zones". I like it a lot, and even though it needs some work, it's a great start.
The pictures can be seen here:
In the game we played, these were the armies (I'm probably forgetting someone)
Spartacus, Crixus, Retarius, Deadeye Dan, and Sgt. Drake(sotm)
Q9, Agent Carr, Krav Maga, Laglor
Minions of Utgar, Zombies x4, Dumutef Guard x2, Taelord
Q9 was the final figure standing, though it was a ridiculously close game.
