UPC Strategy Lesson 2 - Order Markers

Posted March 26th, 2007 at 11:20 PM by UranusPChicago
Order Markers are an integral part of the strategy within Heroscape. However, if you are a "house-ruler" who does not play with Order Markers, more power to you. Again, the genius of Heroscape is that it is easily modifiable; if you don't like a rule, don't use it, if you want to add to a rule, then do it. There has even been discussion that Order Marker rules without modification fail to accommodate very large army battles. Unfortunately, I am not here to discuss either of those scenarios, I am here to discuss Order Marker management how it pertains to games using the official rules.

In my opinion, Order Marker management can make or break a game, even more so than unlucky dice. I say that because an OM on a dead army card is a wasted turn. But even with the worst of luck, an army card activated with an OM that has living figures has a statistical chance to do...

Heroscapers spider_poison and Jormi_Boced look to offer some of their advice based off of the Heroscape Power Rankings thread.

Jormi has won a Gen-Con tournament in addition to the most recent Midwest tournament. Both look to offer some insights on the strengths and weaknesses of a wide variety of Heroscape units in their monthly segment, Power Rankings Revealed. With the new Swarm of the Marro master set around the corner, spider_poison and Jormi_Boced look to some of their current favorite Marro units.

Life Stirs at the Offical Site

Little has been heard from Hasbro concerning HeroScape in some time now. But it looks as if the offical heroscape site is stirring with new activity. The homepage there got a bit of a face lift a couple of days ago.



And now Thormun's Journal has been updated with two new entries.

HeroScape Release Date Info

Posted May 1st, 2007 at 11:10 AM by truth

Heroscapers.com knows what your jonesin for: Info on when you can forfeit more of your hard earned cash on plastic toys. Well our super-sleuth reporter Ninthdoc is on the case. He's scoured the accumulative info on the web and has the skinny on when you should expect more HeroScape to be in stores. Ninthdoc writes:
Marvel Legends Heroscape: House Mouse has Marvel available for pre-order with a scheduled release date of July. Funagain has it scheduled to be available in June. This one should be easy for any marketing exec: May. May is all about Spider-Man. Who the heck wouldn't want to see that movie and then go out and buy a battle game that features two characters seen in this movie (Spidey and Venom) along with a host of Marvel's greatest heroes and villains (including the now deceased Captain America)? If we don't see this in May or early June at the latest, shame on Hasbro...

Power Rankings Revealed II

Posted May 15th, 2007 at 10:02 AM by Jormi_Boced

The votes are in, and for this week of Power Rankings Revealed, the monkeys reign supreme! Gorillinators had the most interest from the poll in the Power Rankings Thread and the Ninjas of the Northern Wind came in second, so they are the two featured units of the month. While both squads are sometimes overlooked as tournament-worthy, one might be surprised to hear of their success stories on the battlefield. Once neglected as one of the worst squads in the game, the Gorillinators became increasingly popular with the release of the Nakita Agents. The Ninjas of the Northern Wind have enjoyed popularity ever since their release, but they are often seen as too D-20 oriented. Jormi_Boced looks to shed some light on how to best use the Ninjas, and spider_poison delves into the strategies and armies best employed with the Gorillinators.
