Fan Art Spotlight - January 2016

A fan art spotlight

Ironically, I played more HeroScape while the Codex was inactive, while we got everything set in stone as to how the new format will work. ‘We’ mainly being the editors, which doesn’t include me, but I use a royal ‘we’ as though the Codex is an entity that is created by merging all those who work on it, which in some ways is true, but is mostly an overly metaphorical artistic vision of how I see the text on the forums in which all the contributors communicate.

It’s been a while (over six months, I believe) since I’ve written this column—this column which has an identity crisis over whether it’s me talking about a piece of art related to the game we all unite through, or me just writing whatever strange overly analytical and strangely metaphorical thing

Raid on Gambia!

Posted January 19th, 2016 at 12:32 AM by kolakoski

Well met!

I am Hosting (meaning creating the scenario, the game still occurring at chas' Game Palace in Brooklyn), out of order, thanks to Taeblewalker's generosity, the Gang's next gathering on February 3rd, so that the Battle Report can appear in April as part of the new Codex blog. I am eschewing the complicated A Royal Rescue! (see comment to my blog post
Musings from Sunny Negril!) in favor of a series of simple kill 'em alls.

Raid on Gambia!

"Arghhh! Captain, our erstwhile partner has landed on the other side of Town. Do we meet him . . .

"Meet him with steel!"

C3V Strategy - January 2016

Unit Strategy Review

Unit: Zaeus
Author: Taeblewalker

The Gorillinators have finally gotten someone fun to play with, utilizing them in an efficient way. His rail gun is powerful and can cause a lot of trouble for your opponent. However, his survivability isn’t as high as it might be, and you are going to have to use some finesse when fielding this Primadon.

Analyzed Statistics
Cost – 130 (Knight Class Unit)
Size – Medium 5
Members – 1 Unique Hero
Life – 4 (Low)
Move – 5 (Average)
Range – 1 (Melee)
Attack – 4 (Above Average)
Defense – 4 (Vulnerable)
Gorillinator Attack Bonding:Take an extra attack turn with Gorillinator when taking a turn with Zaeus. (Tactial advantage:High)
Rail Gun Special Attack: Possibly hit a secondary target with extra

Who are you really?
Don Zimmerman

How old are you?

What is your occupation?
Software Engineer at IBM.

What other interests do you have?
I’m pretty heavily into tabletop gaming. Outside of Heroscape I don’t play a lot of miniature games, but I do play a lot of board and card games as well as some RPGs. Some video gaming as well. My primary hobby, though, is anime. The walls of my basement are covered in bookcases full of anime DVDs and Blu-rays.

What’s another board game you enjoy and why?
I’ve been playing a lot of Cthulhu Wars lately. While the rules are simple and the game is relatively fast, it has an incredible amount of depth of play. And the awesome, huge miniatures

HS Codex Relaunch

Codex: Relaunch

In May of 2015, the Heroscapers Codex released Issue Nine of its second volume: Rebirth. In the editor’s note, we explained that this was the last print issue. We mentioned vague details about a site upgrade, rumored to be coming in June of 2015, which would allow us to continue online.

We are here to tell you that the long wait is finally over. The Heroscapers Codex is back!

When we shut down in May, our plan was to restart in June when the site would be upgraded. In the meantime, we decided to sort out some organizational issues and get ready for the relaunch.

Unfortunately the site upgrade has been delayed for quite a while now. After a few months, we realized we needed to stop waiting and develop a new plan. So, with the help of Xotli, we set up a new account for the Codex. New Codex articles will now appear on the blog
