Well met!

When I was young, I was the guy who played Chess during recess. Since then, I have taken up more physical pursuits, but that part of me that loves games never died; it just lay dormant . . . until:

Over 5 years ago, I was recuperating from an injury, and went online in search of a game and someone to play against. So it was that I met chas.

Although it was Battlelore that brought us together, once chas persuaded me (with a certain amount of difficulty) to try Heroscape, my fate was sealed. Initially, my involvement was relatively minimal: a game once or twice a month at chas' Game Palace in Brooklyn, usually just the two of us, but, occasionally, with Sherman Davies and/or Taeblewalker. Then, a serendipitous event led to my total immersion.

During a casual game of Heroscape, chas soundly defeated a friend of his with a Custom army he had created. In a fit of pique, his friend quit Heroscape altogether, and

Bits and Pieces

Posted April 19th, 2012 at 10:57 AM by Sylvano the Wasabus
If you do a lot of customs sooner or later you end up with a box of ďbits and piecesĒ- bases, arms, heads, and odd figures that just havenít found their way to Valhalla yet.

In addition we have a brain box full of odd ideas weíd like to use but just havenít got to yet- either because the idea just isnítí finished, or itís too much work, or thereís still something wrong with it.

Making a good custom takes a long time- the card part is easy but the play testing lasts forever....

Here are a selection of random bits and pieces from our brain box.

The General Idea
I like to play the Romans and I have customed a good drawer full. Some are simple- I use the legionnaires with pilums together in squads of four to make a group with a once-per- game ranged pilum attack- very deadly.

Well met!

In anticipation of the continued presence of Mikeyblaze and Pauliesmiley at our monthly Gang of Four gatherings, I have prepared this scenario for my next turn as host.

Raid on the Pride of Barsoom!

"All is in readiness, Admiral. The Pride of Barsoom is ready to wreak havoc upon those puny greenies!" The Zodangan Admiral grinned evilly. "At last! Schedule the Commissioning Ceremony Celebration for the next Double Full Moon. And to rub their noses in it even more, have our "guest," the Princess, perform the Ceremony.

The Map.

A large (roughly 35 x 23) Sandy map depicting the surface of the dying planet. Centrally placed on a 3-level high Plateau is the brand new Airship, the Battlecruiser Pride of Barsoom.
