C3G Strategy - April 2018

Posted April 19th, 2018 at 06:23 AM by HS Codex

C3G Strategy Guide
Mister Sinister
By: Ronin


Analyzed Statistics

Left Box Breakdown
Species – Mutate (Synergy)
Uniqueness – Unique Hero
Class – Telepath (Synergy)
Personality – Manipulative
Size/Height – Medium 5

Mutate synergies don’t amount to much—effectively, Sinister can be chosen as the Jackal’s Experiment, if you’re really worried about keeping him alive. You most likely won’t want to leverage that unless you’re playing in a pretty high-point arena, though, since there are better ways to maximize Sinister’s value. Telepath synergies can be pretty nice, however—Sinister can get into a couple of factions that way, and there’s lots of overlap between mutant and telepath synergies, which

'Scaper of the Month - April 2018

Posted April 8th, 2018 at 07:23 AM by HS Codex

’Scaper of the Month
Soundwarp SG-1
Author: The Grim Reaper’s Friend

Soundwarp SG-1 was interviewed for ’Scaper of the Month in our final print issue, Codex Volume 2 Issue 9. While we can’t top the great design job done in that interview (all credit goes to Fi Skirata for content, Evar-Scarcarver for art, and El T for layout), we can catch up with Soundwarp SG-1 again, and see what has changed. The questions in this interview will be a bit different than normal, as we bypass some of the generic questions answered in Soundwarp SG-1’s last interview, and ask new ones in their place. We do recommend you read his interview in the above linked Issue 9 first, as we build on some of the questions asked there.

In your last interview, you gave every indication of not wanting to divulge your name. Any change there?
Well

C3G Strategy - March 2018

Posted March 14th, 2018 at 01:20 PM by HS Codex

C3G Strategy Guide
Baron Zemo (Helmut)
By: Ronin


Analyzed Statistics

Left Box Breakdown
Species – Human (Synergy)
Uniqueness – Unique Hero
Class – Mastermind (Synergy)
Personality – Cunning
Size/Height – Medium 5

A unique hero with a size of medium 5 is basically the default setting for C3G, so, as ever, there’s not too much to talk about there. Being a human comes with some fringe benefits, as does being a mastermind—many of these come in the form of working with figures like civilians, bodyguards, and hired guns. More intriguingly, being a mastermind gives him some interesting army-building possibilities with the Penguin. More on those later.

That said, Helmut is more than a little

The previous ’Scaper of the Month, lonewolf, selected Cavalier as the next candidate. Unfortunately, Cavalier never responded to my invitation. Tornado, our C3G interview contributor, suggested that I interview japes, and the result you see before you. Enjoy!

C3G Interview - February 2018

Posted March 1st, 2018 at 02:19 PM by HS Codex

C3G Interview
Qualizium
Author: Tornado


This time around I thought it might be fun to get a new perspective and finally present some new material for the year. Sometimes you can get too close to a project and you need a fresh pair of eyes. It is my honor to present my first fan interview for C3G.

What led you to playing Heroscape and C3G?

I think I must have first heard of Heroscape from one of Tom Vasel’s Dice Tower videos, and eventually I grabbed three of the master sets (RotV, SotM, Marvel) off of eBay. The big draws for me were the easy rules, the wide variety of options for army building, and the tactical element of jockeying for height advantage.

The first play was a bit of a flop; my wife (my main gaming partner) in particular didn’t seem too enamored with the kitchen sink nature of the Heroscape
