Welcome Back, Heroscape

On November 3, 2010, Wizards of the Coast announced the end of the official Heroscape line. Well, today at GenCon, August 3, 2022, Hasbro announced the return of Heroscape! See Hasbro's awesome official announcement, with cool new graphics, right here:

With the incomparable Craig Van Ness at the helm, design work on the new Master Set is well underway. Craig's team has included our own community's dad_scaper, dok, kevindola, skyknight, and xorlof, and Craig himself has been running point.

There is lots that the team members can't discuss right now, but some that it can. For instance, we were told early on that this revival is possible because of you! That's right, the ongoing community support for our beloved game was one of the essential ingredients in the decision to bring it back.

For now, let's just sit tight, and wait for more information, while we pick the brains of the team members for as much information as they is authorized to share.

Welcome back, official 'Scape!!!

I’m so excited! It’s been years since I’ve played without worrying about the brittle terrain. Great news. Thanks to everyone who made this happen.

I'm not really sure how to feel about this. I have a complete set of the original and all expansions (actually, multiple complete sets). And, haven't played the game in years. I'm not sure I need any more, or to have to 'recomplete' my collection...

This is crazy! I spent yesterday evening catching up on all of the news updates, videos, etc. The new artwork for figures and terrain looks fantastic!

Hats off to the team making this possible. After having moved on to other miniatures games like X-Wing and Imperial Assault, I gotta say the simplicity of the original Heroscape stuff like Rise of the Valkyrie is truly special. I wish I would have held on to a slimmed down set. My one wish with the new Master Set and figure packs is that they try to keep the designs simple and elegant in the spirit of ROTV.

Dammit! After many years away, I logged on to this site to sell my huge collection. Now that I've read this news, I find I'm too excited to let go!

Yes the backers are stacking too slow !! I got my 3 sets. But I have to wonder if they will look at the number of sales VS number of backers $800.00 due to $60.00 in taxes Hurt sure, but I was given TIME to prepare. HeroScape has stayed my main game over all these years. HeroScape deserves this comeback and for alot of us it never went away because EVERYTHING IS HEROSCAPE and HEROSCAPE IS EVERYTHING but official units, lore, and community are priceless!!! I have 1st world issues with this game as is, I just moved and am having a hell of a time finding room for my collection as it is and if we pull this off gotta find room for another 213 figs plus land and MORE TREES and Walls ...Well yall you know I don't post much BUT LETS DO THIS !!!!

I dropped this at Boardgamegeek.com as Mythic suggested.
Unlike most games this one can take just about anything you have and make it part of the Battle of All Time. It's not just a game it's a gaming medium. You should love the gameplay and look right out of the box, But the real hook is that if you love something it will become part of YOUR HEROSCAPE world. EVERYTHING is HEROSCAPE and HEROSCAPE is EVERYTHING.. I'm 50 and ever since I got this game way back in 2006 It has become the Golden standard of why I buy anything toy related.. Just before I started playing HeroScape I was getting into Warhammer and Warhammer 40K, AWSOME games I love miniatures, models, and strategy games, and this did all 3 in one game, but it was looking crazy expensive I made test armies out of cardboard but the game was just too expensive the forces I wanted would cost around $500.00 and that was just 1 army out of the many choices.Then someone showed me HeroScape OMG I could buy EVERYTHING IN this game in one box !!! for $40.00 the cost of just a rule book in Warhammer 40K.. And it was FASTER to play with no hidden rules or Stupid things like I nuked an area but this guy was behind a tree so he cant be hit etc.HeroScape is fast easy and FUN, OH and looks better than anything out there the land hextile system beautiful etc. But the true Game of HeroScape sneaks in when you need more and there isn't any you have it all , well you start looking at other toys and miniatures you already have sitting around in boxes gathering dust, ( my 1st custom was a T-Rex Toy that belonged to my 8 year old daughter ) and with a bit of work OMG NEW HEROSCAPE UNITS !! And it doesn't stop there
Mecha from Robotech, Battletech , and Gundum In our HeroScape Customes even some of the too small minis are just small AI units.
Pulled out a Fisher Price Castle mixed with some building blocks started Castle battles and D&D dungeon dives. Legos Oh boy The Cities you can build, Mega Blocks My world has ships and Pirates I own 2 Flying Dutchmen with paper deck layouts for HeroScape, Skaven, Space Marrines, HeroClix, other miniture games I have bought just to make custom forces AVP and Big trouble in Little China (Gotta have Jack Burton, Heroclicx of Tombstone and a pack of silver tipped sewing pins and I have a Phantasm Army lead by the Tall Guy had to get some Jawas for the Dwarfs, the little rubber penguins at the ranch supply store given army soldier guns. It never ends Even Magic cards can become forces in HeroScape and there have been crossovers of this as well. Here is YOUR chance to get everything you will need to have an Epic adventure that grows with you. Heck 1 year I even made our Christmas tree skirt out of snow tiles. Take a look at Herscapers.com DARE you because for thoose who know EVERYTHING is HEROSCAPE.
