Finally got all of that out of the way
Now before I give my opinion here are a couple things I would like to say,
-This is my first blog post (I've been a Site Supporter for 1 hour)
-I've only been playing HeroScape (seriously) for a month

The second note I put down is somewhat incorrect. I started playing this when I was like 8 years old (So about 2006) and I played it for like 3 months and I quit. My dad wasn't really into it so I never learned the master version and only played the basic version with simple maps. Luckily though when I got back into the game around the time school ended I had a nice base to collect around (since the game is out of stock). I have now bought about $350 worth of Heroscape stuff in one month. My birthday was just 2 days ago so about $250 of that stuff was for my birthday. I haven't been to a tournament yet, but my first appearance to one will be 7/21 at Game Haven for the Dayton, OH RTW tournament hosted by WOOKIE. (here is a link to that...


Now on to my favorite wave. I may not be the best to judge this since I don't have any of Wave 4 and 12, but I will just pick out of the waves I do have

My favorite wave in terms of playibilty is Wave 1 just because of all the bonding strengths between that wave.

My favorite in terms of coolness and figure models IMO is Wave 10. Nerak, Sir Hawthorne, Granite Guardians, and the Quasatch Hunters all look super cool. They also reissued cool figures.

Lastly, my favorite wave in terms of how much I use them would have to be Wave 2 because I use the KoW bonding with Dendrick and Hawthorne a lot as well as Krug, Swog Rider, 4th Mass., and MBS.

So, feel free to leave your opinion on this blog post.
(Sorry about the super long post)

Wave 1 and Wave 2 are definitely classics. I probably use units from those two waves most frequently. I also think Wave 9 and Wave D1 are pretty high up there. Which one is the very best? I'm afraid I couldn't tell you. It's just too difficult!

I'm going to cast a vote for Wave 7 (though I love 2, 1 and 8 ). The Ashigaru are my absolute favorite 'Scape units. Love their look, love playing a giant army of them. I also like the Templars, Cyprien, Isamu. Lots of good fun in that wave.

There is no "best wave." But there is a best game - Heroscape!

(I do like Wave 1 the best though)

Heroscape has some amazing looking figures and I'm all about the aesthetics. So D1-D3 is out. Yes some look alright but not enough to compensate the others.

Wave 1: The romans and gruts are fantastic, so it is in the running.
Wave 2: The Knights are the most played at my home but the Drones came as 1 squad in which you need a base minimum of 3 to use the card properly so I'm DQ'ing it.
Wave 3: Microcorp, MacDirks and Gorillinators with an added Cowboy - wow
Wave 4: Cowboys, Sudema, more Vipers and more Samuri not bad at all...but not as good as Wave 1 or 3 IMHO.
Wave 5: Nakitas, Ninjas and Gladiators...very nice indeed.
Wave 6: Imperium, Heavies, Zombie's (the correct quantity), a freaky looking Marro and Eldgrim the dwarf. Outstanding.
Wave 7: Templars, Vampires and Isamu oh my.
Wave 8: Elves aplenty and Groks...very good but not quite up to the abnormal high standards (again IMHO)
Wave 9: Mohican's, real Dwarves and Dividers...back to wow.
Wave 10: Even though they've been seen before, it's a good addition but not up to the originality standard.
D1-D3: see wave 10.

That leaves my the choice of 1, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9. Half of 5 was reprinted so that's probably not it. Both 7 and 9 are great but just not up to the amazing looks of the other three. The first is probably more sentimental now so drop wave 1 and I keep making fun of Eldgrim so drop out 6.

I'd go with wave 3.
