Craig Van Ness' New Game is on Kickstarter

Posted February 11th, 2017 at 03:09 AM by truth
Heroscape lead designer, Craig Van Ness' new game, Shifting Realms, just launched on Kickstarter.

It is the first game from his new company, now that he's designing independent of Hasbro. I just backed the game and if you buy a copy too, PM me (@Xorlof), and we'll set you up with a year of site supporter status here at Heroscapers (or extend your status if you already are a site supporter).

So have a look at the Kickstarter page, and if you like what you see, show some support for Father Heroscape!

Posted January 26th, 2017 at 03:57 PM by HS Codex

HoSS Strategy Guide
By: Fi Skirata

Analyzed Statistics:
Height – Medium (Average for most figures; leaves them vulnerable to many special attacks and other powers.)
Life – 1 (Standard for squad units.)
Move – 4 (Below average; makes them a little hard to maneuver around the battlefield, but does not limit them too much.)
Range – 6 (Average; common for ranged units.)
Attack – 1 (Low; hard to use against any unit, but especially hero units.)
Defense – 3 (Average for squads; this level of survivability will keep them in the fight long enough to do some damage.)
Points – 70 (Expensive for HoSS squads, being the 2nd most expensive common squad

C3G Interview - January 2017

C3G Interview
Author: Tornado & Yodaking

As I'm sure you are well aware, a ronin is a masterless samurai. Now, you have been masterless since at least 2013 when you joined Heroscapers.com, so I have to ask: Are you even trying to find a new master? It’s been 4 years ... unemployment benefits have to have run out by now. Maybe someone here at C3G is in need of a samurai. What kind of pay and benefits package are you looking for?

Oh, you know how the samurai job market is. Everybody’s looking for an entry-level samurai that already has five to ten years of samurai experience. It’s tempting to go back to samurai school, but you just know you’ll end up looking down the barrel of more samurai loans than you can pay back in one samurai lifetime, and once you have your samurai doctorate

Repaint Feature
Author: The Obfuscatedhippo

I was introduced to Heroscape by my best friend, Jason, who described the game as an “awesome miniature battle game” and then he quickly followed with “.. and the minis are already painted.” I could sense his enthusiasm and, with our knowing each other so well, he also knew that I had no painting skills whatsoever. So, of course, I tried it—and loved it.

As a gamer-child of the 80’s, there were plenty of great miniatures breaking through for wargamers and blood-bowlers alike. Heroscape hooked me in because it reminded me so much of one of my favorite games from the 80’s—Battletech—where I had had visions of how fantastic the games would have

Scaper of the Month - January 2017

Posted January 13th, 2017 at 02:00 AM by HS Codex

’Scaper of the Month
Author: Fi Skirata


Who are you really?
Jason C.

How old are you?

What is your occupation?
I work for a property management company. I do exterior maintenance of condos, where my primary function is repairing lawn sprinkler systems.

I am a bit of a jack-of-all-trades, as I really never know what I may be doing. I really enjoy being outside.

What other interests do you have?
Movies, music and gaming. Mostly RPG and Heroscape. I created my own RPG system with a couple friends that we run at Gen Con every year. It is called Heroes or Dead. Last year we evolved it into more of a miniature combat system with some heavy influence from Heroscape. In fact, this year we will be playing on a Heroscape map in a “King of the Hill”
