Blood Meridian!

Well met!

Many lessons learned from The Power Cosmic! applied here. Blood Meridian is a book by Cormac McCarthy, based on historical events that took place on the Texas-Mexico border in the mid-19th century, where aboriginal Americans are being murdered and the market for their scalps is thriving. Our "heroes" discovered that Mexican scalps were indistinguishable from those of aboriginal Americans, so they slaughtered everyone they encountered. Hope you like it . . .

Blood Meridian!

"Hides and hair. They're paying good money, and they don't care where they came from. Now get out there and get to killin'!"

The Power Cosmic!

Well met!

Where we are.

The Power Cosmic!

After Norrin Radd left, Batman strode swiftly forward. "Galactus' remaining Heralds are coming to this place to recover the Fragments of the Source of Galactus' Power Cosmic.

"These Fragments emit waves of energy that fuel the Heralds' Power Cosmic, but inhibit conventional weaponry. That is why you specifically have been chosen - to recover the Fragments first.

"There you have it! We have little time. For, if the Heralds succeed, they will become as Galactus, and destroy this world!"

Lady Deathstrike spoke to a few of her most devoted admirers. "And if we succeed, we can rule it!"

PLAYERS AND ARMIES
Five players will be split into three teams, with two players per team. (One of the players will play as a team of two.) Each player's army can be up to 500 points and 24 spaces. All official, VC and Shermanverse units are allowed, using Delta VC point costs.

VICTORY CONDITION
At the end of Round 8, the team with the most points worth of figures within any opposing start zones wins the game. Partial card scoring will be used.

Heroscape is Back? From Where?

Well met!

It never left.

I cannot speak to how important Renegade's success is to any given 'Scaper. I can only speak for myself, and hope that my perspective is helpful.

I have been on this site since 2008. I have been fortunate enough to have a regular group of guys to play with - The New York City Gang Of Four. I enjoy designing units. C3V/SoV units are "official" at our table. One of my designs, Kha, was inducted into the SoV.

I am a Martial Artist (4th degree Black Belt in Karate), a Singer (Classical, Church, Musical Theater, Caberet, And Jazz), and have read tons of Historical Fiction, Fantasy, and Science Fiction novels - all of which inform my creative imagination. To me, designing a unit for Heroscape is an art very much like Jazz. The soloist creates within a cooperative context. Improvisation and pushing the creative envelope are encouraged, but the soloist is always listening and his version

Captain Xue Playtest - 1/17/24

Well met!


Super excited to be testing Captain Xue at our next Gang gathering on January 17th. In anticipation of playing two games, I'll be fielding the following two armies in a 600 point, themed scenario of chas' design:

Women Only
150 WoA x 3
140 Eltahale
125 Captain Xue
60 Elaria the Pale
35 Seleena
600 points, 13 spaces

Soldiers, Warriors and Their Leaders
200 Romans x 4
125 Captain Xue
120 Venoc Warlord
100 Marcus
50 Me-Burq-Sa
595 points, 21 spaces

We'll be looking at how she plays, how much tweaking, if any, Captain Xue's Edge might merit, and, of course, what would be the best price for her. I'm also wondering if eschewing Elaria the Pale with her is ever a good idea, but the second army's theme requires it. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.
