Star Wars: Epic Duels

Looking for a way to get casual players involved in Heroscape? Do your opponents lack the interest or knowledge to build/draft their own armies? If so, check out Project 500!

Re: Looking for a board game that plays like Heroscape

Have you tried Summoner Wars? It's played with cards but plays like miniatures.

"I am definitely a mad man with a box."

"They are too numerous to fight. What shall we do?" "Fight anyway."

"You can never defeat another if you know not how to defeat yourself."

Re: Looking for a board game that plays like Heroscape

summoner wars would be yer more inexpensive bet, since ye get the starters for 10 each still.

SW epic duels is gonna cost ye, lowest Ive seen it lately is 60, usually it's 80+ for a good copy of it.

good trades:Caravaggio, Gabbi, Drfeelgood,aljovin,vydar,rrhino,boom, Pallindromemaster, spidysox, Eckels, wytefang, Rym, Armegeddon, Fatboy Chubby, Forgehammer, Grison

Re: Looking for a board game that plays like Heroscape

A Song of Blades and Heroes is a small, cheap ruleset that plays similiarly.

Warhammer Fantasy Battle is a large, expensive ruleset that has the same concepts on a larger, more complex scale.

Warhammer 40 K is the same as above, but Sci Fi.

AT-43 seems to be similar to Warhammer 40K but cheaper to buy the pieces to. I heard it gets similar re-releases of the rules though.

Re: Looking for a board game that plays like Heroscape

You can pick up a pdf copy of "Way of War" for a fairly inexpensive cost. It will allow one to make custom stats and armies for your heroscape figures and allows for mixing and matching with other miniature lines. I've used it a few times in tandem with heroclix and even some paper minis with lots of luck.

Below a google ebook link:

And here's a link to the ongoing paper mini thread:

Re: Looking for a board game that plays like Heroscape

I heard via Dicetower that Dust Tactics is very similar to Heroscape



The largest source of Heroscape in Wyoming Washington, now selling loads of terrain.
