New stuff

Posted July 8th, 2010 at 12:52 AM by NamibianScaper
Today marks a year that we suddenly left southern Africa, and 13+ months since we played Heroscape.

I have been keeping up with the new stuff somewhat. Got a few comments.

1. Coolness. D&D has not been bad for HS at all.

2. Power Creep. Not in wave 1 but the new stuff just being announced looks strong. 4/4 is the new 3/3. 6 is the new 4.

3. Screenshots of Shurrak. Let's see how big the fella is next to Jotun and other Huge figures.

4. Huge Figure only army. Got enough big guys with this set to get a fun theme going. Was there a big one in every pack?

5. Still no 9th Elf Wizard. Good. He/she should be from Feylund in good old Classic Scape.

I'm picking up a couple sets as I see them on clearance but not the Master Set yet. I only paid $20-$24 for RotV and SotM. How can I pay $28?? Besides no one to play with. Too busy. Son back in Africa right now. Brother about 1k miles away :\

Good to hear from you. It's been almost 9 months! Your thoughts echo my sentiments exactly, except the last one, I would take a $28 master set right now, especially RotV!

I can't get the image links to work for some reason, but at the bottom of post one in this thread there are a couple side-by-sides of Jotun and the fire giant.

I agree that 4/4 looks like the new 3/3, and that 6 Life is the new 4 Life, but I don't think that's a sign of power creep. I believe they did that because those older 3/3 units, or 4L, 4D units haven't turned out to be worth their points most of the time. I don't think any 4/4 or 6L/4D figure in this set will be overly competitive or broken by any means.

Thanks, you guys are awesome. Thanks so much for that link!!! I had no idea the werewolf was so big. Shurrak looks great but Jotun is still the man, eh? I'm glad no one hit his size or 7 attack dice
KC when I looked again there were several with points that make them more similar to Kaemon Awa whose 4 life points often were not enough for me so I think you're right.
