Yokai vs. Samurai + Mecha

Posted February 21st, 2021 at 07:18 PM by Astroking112
Well, in my infinite temptations for cool miniatures, I realized that the sculpt used for Mokumokuren actually had the availability for an SoV submission... And given the very positive responses that the design has gotten, Captain Stupendous and I decided that it's worth adding it to the testing pool to try and get it ready for Yokai Wave 2.

Ideally, Mokumokuren will add a lot to Yokai armies as their first non-Unique option, opening up army-building options a lot. Given that they're also offensively oriented, this has the potential to really diversify the faction, and a living object of some sort almost feels like a thematic necessity here given the actual Yokai legends. So we wanted to test out a revised draft from the one initially posted to my thread, which swaps the revealed OM gimmick to be more in line with other Yokai and adds a range limit to the "Lesser Shapeshift" for thematic reasons. Both of these changes should be minimal for Yokai builds, but...

C3G Interview - GamerHusband

C3G Interview
Author: davidhls & Tornado

Welcome all to another C3G Interview. I have been doing a bit of a mix of old interviews and new, so this time around I decided to give you both. GamerHusband goes back to the early days of C3G, but stepped away for a while. Well, he is back and is slowly digging into the new designs and having amazing battles.

So let us start with the old interview hosted by the legend that is davidlhsl.

Give it up for ... GamerHusband!

If you could change one thing about Heroscape, what would it be?

Bring it to back into production.

How often do you get to play Heroscape? I believe you also play with a gaming group. Tell us a bit about them.

For the last 5 years, I have played Heroscape weekly in a very steady group of

FFC #67 - Poldark

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #67

When I posted my most recent fan fiction, Valkyrie, I said there was a lot of stuff which had happened with my writing which I was eager to share. Now, I know most of it probably isn't that interesting, and honestly a lot of it is just untested theories. But there is one bit I've come to realize recently, which I intend to experiment with in whatever I write next, and which I hope will help my writing a lot. I'd like to share it.

It concerns the TV show Poldark. Now if you haven't seen the show, I won't spoil anything. But I will say that you need to see it. It is just an awesome show. Free on Amazon Prime.

Poldark is one of those British drama shows, in the same vein as Pride & Prejudice (albeit with substantially more action, and vastly more relatable plots). Every part of it is written well, and the plots are amazing. But it shines in two areas above all else: viewer investment, and character...

FFC #66 - A new fan fiction is live!

TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #66

As of last night, the posting of my latest fan fiction, Valkyrie, has commenced. The thread can be found here.

In my last FFC, I said I almost certainly would not be writing this story. See, this is why you can trust nothing I say.

I realized that the story had some issues, and following a slump in interest, decided that I should move on. So I did. For a few weeks.

But randomly, I looked back at the story, and the issues, and started toying with ways to fix them. I came up with what I would need to do, and saw that the fixes weren't massive rewrites or huge edits. Interest came back, and I decided that as long as I had the interest, I might as well fix the fiction and see how far I got.

And here we are.

Now, as with any other story of mine, there are some big issues, and as always, I intend to fix those in whatever I write next. But there were also some...

Yokai vs. Heavy Gruts

Posted January 30th, 2021 at 07:04 PM by Astroking112
The Kirin-led Yokai just lost to Sacred Band, so obviously the next step is to test them against a probably A-tier army of Heavy Gruts, Nerak, Grimnak, and Marro Warriors. Surprisingly, they did better than against the Sacred Band.

DEADLOCK by Dignan
500 Points
Heavy Snow and Normal Ice
Glyphs: Ulaniva and Wannok
Captain Stupendous: Abe no Seimei, Kincho, Masha Shingai, Kirin, Nure Onna
Astro: Heavy Gruts x4, Nerak the Glacian Swog Rider, Grimnak, Marro Warriors

3x Heavy Gruts, 4x Marro Warriors, Grimnak (unwounded), Nerak (unwounded)
~270 Points Left

Spoiler Alert!
