I've got reporters scrambling around Comic-Con today snapping high-quality photos, speaking with game designers, and preparing to report in on all of the Heroscape news.

Yesterday, however, Comic-Con did a preview of its dealer hall and members of our forums were able to get some early pictures. Our information is incomplete at this time, but I hate to have our forums buzzing with info and not announce it here on the front page.

Here are the pictures we have so far:

Superhero Customs

The art of custom unit making is nothing new. I was among the first to venture into that world, but since those early days the face of HeroScape has changed, and thus so have custom units. When the game only had one set of boosters to choose from the unlimited potential for more could hardly be contained, and so custom units held a lofty place in the hearts of the early fans. As more and more official product became available there became less and less of a desire for fans to bring variety to the game by way of making their own units.
Custom unit making still has a niche in the community, but it tends to be a gathering of custom unit makers, making the units simply for the joy of the creation process, rather than to fill a desire...

Many New Offical Scenarios Released

Check out heroscape.com for a bunch of new scenarios. Some use battlefields we are already familiar with while others include brand spanking new battlefields.
The scenarios have lots of fun and creative special rules. The Struggle for Reinforcements Scenario on the Bloodred River Battlefield includes special rules like slowly placing your army two cards at a time as the game progresses and a Thin Ice rule when landing on an ice space that is next to a water space.

Among the new scenarios are battlefields that include terrain from the up and coming Swarm of the Marro Master Set, as Hasbro continues to hype us up for this new set.
Another thing to take note of on some of these new official battlefields is the mixing of different terrain expansions together. They are no longer being...

Marvel HeroScape Review

Heroscaper Wytefang* is the first lucky 'scaper to get the new Marvel set in his hands.* He's got a review for us.* Wytefang writes:

Marvel Legends HeroScape has finally arrived at HouseMouseGames.com and is shipping out to eager fans, all over the world. I received mine last Friday and since I’ve had some good time to play with these figures already, Truth has graciously allowed me to write a quick review of this inaugural Superhero Master Set.

My first impression of this exciting new setting in the HeroScape system was that the Master Set box wasn’t very big. This is primarily due to the smaller amount of included terrain than you’d find in a ‘classic’ HeroScape Master Set. Ostensibly this was done to keep games close-up, fast, and personal and it definitely works as anticipated. Battles in the Marvel Legends game are frenetic, hard-hitting slug-fests – perfectly suited to the ten powerful Marvel superheroes included in the Legends Master Set. Super-powered...
