Heroscape Compendium

The Unoffical Guide to Heroscape has long been the go to source for keeping up with the fiction building around Heroscape.* Now the Unofficial Guide is back under a new name, its updated, and looking great.** Guide creator Annerios writes:

It has been a long time coming, but the Unofficial Guide to Heroscape returns with updates in content, art and design. This edition has so many changes that we have renamed it The Heroscape Compendium.

The Heroscape Compendium has all of the scattered bits of the growing Heroscape storyline from advertising campaigns, flavor text in rule guides, unit biographies, battlefield scenarios and, of course, Thormun's Journal. Now, thanks to the fantastic efforts of Hextr1p and Hex_Enduction_Hour, the guide has an updated interior design that is beautiful to look at instead of just being utilitarian.

One of our heroscapers came across a great find. The portfolio of one Josh Reeves on coroflot.com It turns out Josh Reeves has done some work for Hasbro on Heroscape character concept design.

Bravo Mr. Reeves, it looks like you had a great big hand in some of my favorite new character designs.

Aquilla and Ticalla Confirmed

Today I received an email from Paul Barclay detailing the release plans for the Aquilla's Alliance and Ticalla Jungle expansion packs.

Paul writes:
Yes, we’re releasing the Ticalla Jungle pack and the Aquilla’s Alliance pack. It took a while, but we finally convinced our finance department that releasing the Jungle and large figures pack was a good idea, and actually would make us money. They’d been worried about the profitability for a while, but after much running of numbers, everyone’s finally sure this is the correct thing to do. Since we’re spending our effort (and shelf space) getting this product out, so we won’t be doing the Desert pack at this time. But, stay tuned for other developments in that direction.

Ticalla Jungle and Aquilla’s Alliance are going to come out before GenCon (we still don’t have an exact date, but we’ll know more as we get closer). ...

For the past couple of months Wizards has hinted that they were unsure that the large hero and jungle terrain pack, that were both previewed at GenCon '07, would be released as originally planned.

As heroscapers.com has come understand it, the reason for the lack of surety in these upcoming releases is that some of the retail stores that carry Heroscape are unhappy with how the large hero/terrain packs have sold in the past and opted to quit carrying them.

We believe that this dissatisfaction by retailers stems from the fact that when boxes of large heroes and terrain were sent out to stores they were always packaged with two hero packs to every one terrain pack. Many fans purchase only one hero pack, whereas they purchase multiples of the terrain packs. This leads to lopsided sales and a lot of left-over large hero packs on shelves.
