Since he joined the site Mojobang has been creating some of the most amazing custom terrain that has ever graced this site. Probably the best since the days of Cupidsart and Leifkicker, and this piece is no exception. I could ramble on and on about mojobang's work, but it speaks for itself.

There was a bit of a groping in the dark phase where we were finding our way, but all C3G Units are actually placed in Waves at this point...

The Death of Heroscape?

Wizards of the Coast announced today that it will be discontinuing the Heroscape line.

They've sited a desire to focus on their core brands as the reason. I know, shocking right? Wizards doesn't want to branch out from Magic and D&D?! Since when? For those of you who aren't well-versed in the history of Wizards of the Coast and hobby game publishing, that was sarcasm. Wizards has had a notoriously difficult time branching out from their core brands of D&D and Magic the Gathering. Nowhere is that more evident than their handling of the Heroscape brand. Rather than allow Heroscape to grow based on the brand it had established for itself, they chose to re-brand the product line to fit into D&D. Many rock-solid, even fanatical, Heroscape fans saw that as a jumping off point. Is that why the brand didn't work at Wizards? Maybe, maybe not.

When Cmgames of pumpkin map fame took this pic at the
NorCal NHSD tourney it was already an impressive shot of the figures, but when he changed the background it rivals some of the official artwork. Wizards of the coast, if you're reading this, you've found your new photographer.

Custom of the week.



This week's custom is the C3G ally exclusive Swamp Thing. Now you may ask why we are featuring a custom that's already so prominent in the community. The reason is that we are also featuring an interview with C3G lead designer IAmBatman and the Swamp Thing was selected by the C3G as the unit to represent them in this article.
