Scenario Update From Chris 'theguru' Dupuis

Posted February 11th, 2011 at 01:11 PM by truth
Hello All,

It's been a busy few months since the announcement that Heroscape was cancelled. When that happened, I assured everyone that the lost scenarios (at least the ones created under Colby, Jerry, and I) would be released. I had a few projects already lined up that have slowed my ability to focus on resurrecting these scenarios. Now that those projects are finished (and I'm looking forward to being able to talk to you guys about them soon!), I'm able to focus on resurrecting the scenarios.

I'm happy to announce that this weekend I'll begin drudging up those old files, double checking the builds for each level, and photographing the rooms. Once I have that done, I have a few volunteers who are going to help to clean up the room images and send them back to me. I'll put the new photos into the files and we can then start releasing them!

And to those that have asked, yes, I will be updating the River of Blood's file to include room...

Forever Valiant

Posted November 24th, 2010 at 03:33 PM by truth
Awhile back Wizards asked us to design a couple of potential repaint exclusives. We made Agent Skahen and one other. The other was a patriot by the name of Samuel Brown and he was never used. We recently asked Wizards for permission to release the card and were granted permission. So here it is. Special thanks to long-time Heroscaper Hextr1p for assisting on putting the card graphic together.

You can download a .pdf of Samuel at the link below.

Wizard's Put Exoskeleton Markers in the Wrong Pack

The upcoming Wave D3 pack - Valkrill's Legion - was supposed to contain Exoskeleton Markers for use with the Mezzodemons. The Mezzodemon's card text refers to these markers.

It has come to our attention that those Exoskeleton Markers were instead put in the pack - Icewind Scourge.

So this means that for every pack of Valkrill's Legion that you purchase you must also purchase a pack of Icewind Scourge to have access to the needed Exoskeleton Markers. Wizards has not told us how their customer service will handle complaints about this. I imagine that if the company has any integrity at all they will provide the missing markers free of charge upon request...

The Death of Heroscape?

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...

Final D3 Preview: National Heroscape Day

I just got home from the New England NHSD event. Across the country today players sat down across the table to roll some dice together. If your local NHSD event was anything like mine, you came away with a bunch of fun stories, and hopefully a few new rivals!

I'm excited to announce that WotC gave us permission to release the preview set of D3 to some lucky participants on National Heroscape Day. So a few lucky players in New England, Texas, and Iowa walked away from the events with some very exclusive prizes!

At each of those 3 events today we revealed one final figure, and for those of you not attending, here they are!


Moltenclaw might look like just a short range Mimring at first. However, once you play on a battlefield with him, you'll realize he completely changes the way your opponent thinks about placement!
