My New (at least to me) Figures - Now what?!

Posted April 26th, 2009 at 03:46 AM by kolakoski
Well met!

My friend, Chas, has arranged for me to acquire a Heroscape Hoard for a relative song. I won't know 'til Wednsday exactly what I have. As I understand it, I will have at least 1 of just about everything. I laud his kindness and generosity yet again herein and ask you all to celebrate with me as I become a True Heroscaper (with the possession of my own figures)!

Given the above, I'd appreciate any advice with creating a competitive army using only 1 of any common squad. I would like to build it around a core of 1 x Arrow Gruts, Mimring and Krug. For example, at 540 points, I could add 1 x KoW, Thorgrim and Finn.

Humbly Grateful

Cavalry Redeux - What to Do, What to Do, What to Do!?

Well met!

My friend Chas, the Technically Challenged, has been trying for days to become a Site Supporter and start his own Blog. After numerous back-and-forth emails, I called him on the telephone, and walked him through the process. Then we spent a couple hours talking 'scape.

During this conversation, the subject of the new "braves" came up, and we wished for Native American horse archers. This naturally led us to the problems associated with mounted troops in Heroscape thus far, and what might be done about them.

I suggested giving cavalry squad units 2 lives. Chas thought it such a good idea that it deserved its own Blog entry. (I did some research in the Forum, and found a House Rule to help the Templars by making "dismiss the rabble" apply to ranged attacks.) Chas suggested that Swog Riders were supposed to be horrifying Wolf Riders as in LoTR and should be similarly augmented. I am sure the idea of adding to cavalry...

Well met!

My friend, Charley (He Who Owns All Heroscape), chas to you, asked me yesterday how he could start a blog on this site. I did not know myself, so I looked it up for him. Then I got to thinking . . .

At only $15, becoming a Site Supporter is a great deal. (How come my name isn't blue yet, huh?) Now, instead of posting my thoughts in the Forum, and having them generally ignored, and any threads I might start sinking out of sight faster than [insert appropriate stock market metaphor here], I can post them here for posterity.

Speaking of posts: Only after I accessed the "Post to your Blog" screen did I notice that I had posted 100 times. Coincidence? Omen? I would like, at this time, to thank (and I do) the creators and maintainers of this site, acknowledge the kindness of the community at large, and express my great respect for you all. That having been said . . .

Why pseudonyms? Are you afraid that someone you know...
