The Death of Heroscape?

Updated November 3rd, 2010 at 04:45 PM by truth
Wizards of the Coast announced today that it will be discontinuing the Heroscape line.

They've sited a desire to focus on their core brands as the reason. I know, shocking right? Wizards doesn't want to branch out from Magic and D&D?! Since when? For those of you who aren't well-versed in the history of Wizards of the Coast and hobby game publishing, that was sarcasm. Wizards has had a notoriously difficult time branching out from their core brands of D&D and Magic the Gathering. Nowhere is that more evident than their handling of the Heroscape brand. Rather than allow Heroscape to grow based on the brand it had established for itself, they chose to re-brand the product line to fit into D&D. Many rock-solid, even fanatical, Heroscape fans saw that as a jumping off point. Is that why the brand didn't work at Wizards? Maybe, maybe not. It doesn't change anything for me to get overly speculative on the matter, but there it is. I've pointed out the Elephant in the...

W@HS November 5th 2010

Image of the week.

When Cmgames of pumpkin map fame took this pic at the
NorCal NHSD tourney it was already an impressive shot of the figures, but when he changed the background it rivals some of the official artwork. Wizards of the coast, if you're reading this, you've found your new photographer.

Custom of the week.

This week's custom is the C3G ally exclusive Swamp Thing. Now you may ask why we are featuring a custom that's already so prominent in the community. The reason is that we are also featuring an interview with C3G lead designer IAmBatman and the Swamp Thing was selected by the C3G as the unit to represent them in this article.

I will post pics here and the scenarios but it is not going to be Classic Heroscape per se....it is going to be a dungeon crawl first without much regards for Generals other than special powers being activated. It will not be Vahalla....the heroes will become generic and as swarms of heroes invade the dungeons of StormDeep I will constantly tell the story, introduce new heroes, new traps, new rule twists, and all sorts of other fun stuff. We will
