I have been working on this article for a day now and couldn't figure out exactly what I wanted to say about this map and Caravaggio's Map Building Skills. So I decided to let the pictures speak for themselves...and they speak volumes!

Grishnakh's Customized Terrain, Part 1: Hex Tiles

The following will change the face of heroscape for many an ambitious reader. Grishnakh shows us all how to, step by step, make our fantastic interlocking heroscape terrain come to life! He's done all the work and now all you have to do is follow his simple steps.

Grishnakh felt that even though the Heroscape tiles looked pretty good straight out of the box, they still looked too "plastic" and unreal. The brown highlighted the hexes way too much for his tastes and made everything look like"hex world", plus the color scheme left a lot to be desired, in his opinon. So, taking inspiration from Games Workshop and some previous work he had done in making a hex based wargame. He bought a master set, got out some paint and some flock and after much trial and error (as well as many trips to the hobby store and the craft store) he arrived at a procedure that he felt looked...

Quests of Heroscape

Netherspirit has a look into Quests of Heroscape, he writes:
Are you looking for a new way to play Heroscape? Give Quests of Heroscape a try. Quests of Heroscape was created by our very own Teamski. Teamski was on a mission to add something to the game of Heroscape that didn't involve having to kill everything to win. He originally wanted to add an RPG element to the game, but it turned out to be something altogether different.
With the aide of Malechi (artistic and advising), Teamski created Quests of Heroscape. All you need to play the basic quests is a full set of the glyphs, at least 2 ruins, and a high point. So basically all you need is a master set.
Once you have your map set up, place the glyphs symbol-side up (power-side down) randomly on the map. Then you are ready to get your Quests. Each player gets 3 quest cards, that are kept secret from all the other players. Each...

Rules of Valhalla

Posted May 21st, 2006 at 02:02 PM by Hex_Enduction_Hour
"Will the Gorillinators get their 'Tough' shield?"

"Can an orc disengage from a Knight of Weston without a swipe from their Coward's Reward ability?"

"If my Deadeye's engaged, can he still Sharpshoot somewhere else?"

Sound familiar? How many times has a situation like these arisen in one of your battles? The wording on a Heroscape unit card is explicit and to the point. If care is not taken in its interpretation, you may end up missing a key point or making a drastic mistake.

It's important to always look over an ability or special attack...

The Lure of 3D Hexes

Do you remember the first time you saw the Heroscape Master Set? The first time you noticed all the pre-painted minis? How about when you saw the terrain? For many of us, it was the terrain that caught our eye and started us on this awesome game. It was stackable and interlocking; we could build our own battlefields over and over again.

Then, with each terrain expansion, things got better and better. We now have forest, roads, lava, ice, snow, glaciers, and soon castles. Remember the Toy Fair photos.

Our own members of Herscapers.com have made exceptional use of this terrain and even created some of their own.
