Selling My Collection

Well, I hate to say it, but I'm the latest in a line of Heroscape lovers who, due to changing life circumstances, have to sell their collections. I'm taking inventory of my stuff with some provisional prices below (based on what I've seen on eBay).

I hate the prospect of shipping this stuff, so I'm hoping to sell as much of it to local Colorado 'Scapers as I can. Starting August 10th, I'll be making my way to Seattle, so if there are any 'Scapers between Colorado and Washington state who it would be fairly easy to deliver to, I'd be open to that, too. I'm willing to ship some of this stuff, but only if there are no local buyers, or if the offer is really good (better than what I've listed).

If anybody wants the whole shebang, I've provisionally priced it around $2700, and we can haggle from there. Anyway, here's the collection piece by piece:

I'm going to use this post as a repository for my custom ideas. Someday I might turn them into cards and even find miniatures to go with them!

Unit Anatomy: Major Q9, Part 1

Posted February 4th, 2012 at 11:44 PM by Elginb
I've always wondered exactly where various units derive their point value, and I've decided to start doing some heavy analysis to figure it out. To that end, I'm going to be asking the following questions:

1) How much are this unit's stats worth?
2) How much are this unit's powers worth?
3) How much are this unit's synergies with other units worth?

After that, I might consider the following:
4) How much are this unit's terrain or glyph bonuses worth?
5) How much is this unit worth in best- and worst-case scenarios?

I'll start with the unit everybody loves to hate: Major Q9 (180 points).

1) Stats - Major Q9 is a Large 7, 4 Life, 5 Move, 8 Range, 4 Attack, 7 Defense. How much of Q9's value is earned from these stats alone?

I think the best comparison case is Zetacron. Like the Major, Zetacron is Large 7, 5 Move, and 8 Range. His special power means that he averages the same number of skulls as...

Preparation: This was an unusual tournament in that we didn't decide the format until 3 days before the event, so it didn't leave much time for preparation. We finally decided on the following:

Tournament Armies Used
Below are the armies I've used in the tournaments I've been to. You'll notice a pattern-- I'm always 3rd place. Well, there's one time I was 4th place, but that was the same tournament that gave dok his only local losing record, so I don't feel so bad. Around here, dok pretty much owns 1st place, I own 3rd place, and 2nd place gets passed around like the swine flu...

NHSD: Rocky Mountain Rumble 2009
3) ElginB 3-1 (Venoc Warlord, Venocsx3, Mohicansx2, Aubriensx2); loss to dok; 3rd place

Boulder Goofy Draft/Multi-Scenario Tourney 1/16/10
3) Elginb 2-2 (Army Draft Pool: Marrden Hounds x3, Cyprien, Sonya, Marcu, Airborne Elite, Marro Warriors, James Murphy, Eldgrim-- I can't remember the specific armies I played, unfortunately); win over Chief, loss to dok; 3rd place

Boulder Tourney 3/6/10
3) Elginb 4-2 (Spider-Man, Major Q10, Stingers x3) wins over Eric, Chief, Lafleurhero; losses to dok, Nacho; 3rd place...
