Week @ Heroscapers, July 6

Image of the Week

The image of the week comes from the same new image uploader who recently uploaded the great shots of the new wave 9 squads - basilmichael. You can see all of his great images here.

Download of the Week

This week's Download is Mad_wookie's Capuan Arena. It give a very unique twist to maps, splitting a player's starting zone into three different areas. You opponent is also split, making you have to plan even more.

Custom of the Week

This week, we're featuring another custom from Taeblewalker's Unofficial "Not an Exclusive" Figure Contest. 1moreheroscaper did this custom, Styro Colmanius, a repainted Roman Legionnaire. Styro is to the Roman Archers as the Swog Riders are to the Arrow Gruts. He helps out the lesser used Roman Archers, giving them a little boost, making them more useful with their low defense.
Good luck in the contest to everyone!!

Thread of the Week
Get on your war bonnets! Gencon 2009 is coming ever closer, and scapers across the country can really start practicing because the Gen Con Heroscape maps for 2009 have been announced by R˙chean. This year 11 maps are going to gencon. Four BoV maps, two gencon map contest maps, two BoV nominated maps, and three custom Gencon maps have been chosen to attend.

Blog of the Week
Prison Break! Screams a guard from his high watchtower as a few convicts race from the darkness and into what could be freedom, or an eternal slumber. Nooblar has once again given us a new scenario, and a new way of playing the game that adds a special element of drama and action to the game. So what will it be? Win, or lose?

Scaper of the Week

This week, Rym interviewed Hextr1p, one of the site's designers. He expresses his love for the Lakers, 311, and his flare for custom making. He may also, at one time, have been mistaken for a certain celbrity. See the full interview here.

...and I had to go on a weeklong vacation the morning my box arrived.

Anyway, I have a suggestion for next week's pictures. Scottishlad5 has some nice wave 9 ones. http://www.heroscapers.com/community...t=23501&page=5

Thanks for the mention! Good picks on the other entries, too--I think I'll be playing my first game with the Steamroller on the Capuan Arena map.
