Rome on the Run

Posted August 4th, 2016 at 12:20 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
A Big Game can take weeks to play or even months. It’s awfully exciting though, when everyone is struggling in the beginning and we will play every spare moment. In our dreams we imagine alliances and strategies to bring our enemies to their knees. Everything is possible.

Poor Rome suffered a large loss against York. Even though the Romans won the battle their big army of points was cut down to a small army, and they withdrew to regroup. York had more points on the way and the Romans were running scared.

And then the expected but nasty happened. The gnolls, who had been Roman vassals, revolted. They’d been sending a measly twenty points in tribute to the Romans and were allowed to build up points and armies as long as they used those armies to Rome’s advantage. They met an Arken army, but instead of attacking agreed to a truce and war on Rome.

The main gnoll army, around six hundred points, was far from the gnoll capital, and it took...

Codex Customs Parallax Design
Monkey Swarm
Author: IshMEL, with Scytale and johnny139

Welcome to the new Codex Customs Parallax Design! Every few months, three designers will independently create a custom using the same figure. They will then discuss their own design process and critique each others’ designs. It’s our hope that you will glean some wisdom about custom design from the conversation. For our first Parallax Design, I am joined by my esteemed Codex Customs colleagues Scytale and johnny139. The three of us tried our hand at designing an army card for the Pathfinder Monkey Swarm:

The figure presents some interesting design challenges. How do you present a swarm of figures on one hex? Are these monkeys,

The Faceless Ones! - Draft Version

Well met!

The next gathering of the Gang is on August 10th. I will be Hosting, and we will be playing The Faceless Ones! (also below). The drafting for this game will begin, in The New York City Gang Of Four thread, on August 3rd. I will roll to determine draft order, and post it. The Gang will then post their draft picks, one pick at a time (two picks when a Player has two in a row, such as the Player choosing 4th). Teammates will be determined after the draft is complete.

I'm really looking forward to this game. A discussion in
Drafting Strategy?, beginning with post #6 (a copy of the scenario itself), with Tornado and Dysole, implies that this will not be merely a draft by the numbers (not that it would be anyways, given the idiosyncrasies of the various members of the Gang), as the relative values of the various choices

GenCon 2016

Posted July 28th, 2016 at 10:54 PM by Hendal
Hey All,

Holy Crap that year went fast, and I have played way way less heroscape, oops. I have been playing HS 2.0 but lets face it Magic HS is just heroscape with extra bells and whistles really , extra hoops to jump through that are hard to remember for the Beer & Pretzel gamer ( i never remember to activate the face down cards ).

So now I need to set up a board or 2 tomorrow and then pull out all the figures, I do have carrying cases for my figures this year, so that is a first. I think I can get in 1 or 2 nights of HS before GC< but I need to think of army builds as well, oh so much HS homework, he he.

Since last year was my worst showing ever, I sure hope to do better this year, I felt so hollow not bringing home the dice, he he. I am excited for the bigger army builds, but of course the time thing will haunt us on that one we all know. A guy with lots of roborats, or the the blastor/gladitron combos, or even the 4th mass...

C3G Interview - July 2016

Posted July 28th, 2016 at 03:01 PM by HS Codex

C3G Interview
Trollbrute, on March Madness winning unit: "Rover"
By: marrowick

Who or what is Rover exactly?

Rover comes from the storyline “Here Comes Tomorrow,” and was created by Grant Morrison and Marc Silvestri. He is a sentient, damaged Sentinel robot from a dystopian future where an evil, Sublime-possessed version of the X-Man Beast controls most of the planet. Rover, along with his human companion, Tom Skylark, joins up with the future X-Men to fight Beast. Rover gives his life during the fight, but he and the X-Men are able (through wibbly wobbly, comicey womicey means) to change the past and prevent this future. Versions of Rover also appear in the awesome cartoon Wolverine and the X-Men and the limited comic series Sentinel.

Why did the heroes choose Rover as a contestant in the “March Madness” event?
