New England Heroscape: Red, Fight, & Blue
Saturday, July 6th, 2019
New Players Welcome

Given how close this event is to Gencon, I am going to run the Gencon 2019 General Wars format on 2019 Gencon maps. It'll be both an easy bring-1 format for everyone, and good practice for anyone going to Gencon this year.

Where: 5 Chrysler Rd., Natick MA (first floor lounge) (park across the street at Home Depot)

When: Show up 1 PM, Round 1 starts at 1:30 pm. 60 minute rounds.

What: 4 rounds (will re-evaluate if we get more than 16 players) of a Swiss-Style Tournament.

Format: Players bring 330 points or less of figures from one general and 150 points or less of figures from any other general. (Note: Utgar and Valkrill are considered the same general for this event). The entire army has a figure limit of 24 figures. No Marvel allowed. Classic Heroscape (including D&D) figures only - no C3V/SOV.

Entry: There will be a $5 entry fee which will go towards the prize table.

Please let me know by replying to this thread if you are planning on attending, so that I have an accurate estimate for the number of maps I need to bring.

There will be 4th of July Heroscape themed prizes as well.

For anyone who wants to enter but is missing a figure they would like to run, or doesn't have an army at all, reach out to me and I can likely provide the figure/army. (Please reach out before the day-of though)

Food: There are several restaurants within a half mile of the game store for people looking for food before or after the event.

Maps:
Dance of the Dryads
Infected Glade
Invasion
Platypus
The Borogoves
Ashfall (up to 2)
Dry Season (up to 4)
I will have enough maps provided for 11 tables. If we get more than that (would be awesome!) any volunteers to bring extra maps would be great.

Glpyh Pool: Unique Attack +1, Initiative +8, Wannok, Kelda, Move +2, D20 +1 (no treasure glyphs)

Attending:
Chris Perkins
Nick (Freind of Chris Perkins)
Itsbuzzi
Sir Heroscape
Family of Sir Heroscape (2)
Mike Contente (youtube name) + 1 friend
nova
KourtJester
6foot4-2inches/Zack (reddit user name) + 2 friends
Drewman-chu + 1 friend
Curry_Noodles +2

Maybe:
nyphot
righteousdjinn (reddit user name)
Cleon
2 Friends/Family of Sir Heroscape

Put nyphot down as a maybe, he posted in the other thread.

Edit: Could someone also refer to me examples of armies to bring, I haven't a clue about this format but it looks cool.

Chris Perkins June 7th, 2019 08:24 AM

Re: New England Heroscape: Red, Fight, & Blue
 
Regarding armies to bring, I think the best example is where the meta at Gencon last year ended up (with slight tweaks to the format though, which should lead to very different armies this year).

Last year the format was: Bring a 18 hex 480pt army. All of your army must be from 1 of the following alliances: Jandar+Aquilla, Utgar+Valkrill, or Einar+Ullar+Vydar. No more than 300 points from 1 general.

The top 2 armies (based on popularity and results) were:
Q9, 10th Reg x4
Raelin [RotV], Nilfheim, Axegrinders x3

This year the alliances are not pre-set, which should lead to more variety in army builds.

Generally though, general wars armies try to fit one of the following criteria:
1) Synergy units, like Raelin
2) Strong units that don't bond, but make 2 very strong waves
3) Units from different generals that bond (there aren't many, but there are some)

I'm in and if need be I can bring some stuff, just not other people as I don't have any of those to spare sadly.

I won't be able to make this one. I expect to be home then.

Well it's definitely happening :)

I'm advertising on Reddit too (I'm CaesarsGaul there), posted about the tournament here:
https://www.reddit.com/r/heroscape/c...ment_july_6th/
Looks like we might get 1 or 2 more from there.

We're at 8 or 9 currently by my count, certainly enough to run it but plenty of room for more players.

itsbuzzi June 19th, 2019 08:28 AM

Re: New England Heroscape: Red, Fight, & Blue
 
You could also post to the Facebook group. That *might* get you some more but at the very least it makes the event shareable through social media for others.

Drewman-chu June 19th, 2019 11:24 PM

Re: New England Heroscape: Red, Fight, & Blue
 
I just this and I will try to make it. I will try and get a couple of people to attend too. 2 tourney's in 1 summer, this is like a total Heroscape reawakening in NE!

Sir Heroscape June 23rd, 2019 06:54 PM

Re: New England Heroscape: Red, Fight, & Blue

Important Update:

There has been a change in the location of this tournament. It will now be at
5 Chrysler Rd., Natick MA (resident lounge on the first floor of the building).
instead of Excelsior Comics & Games.

The game store that had previously agreed to let us play there contacted me yesterday afternoon to let me know they no longer had the space for us due to another activity happening at their store that day. Every other game store in a ~1 hour radius of me is already booked or doesn't have the space for 8 Heroscape games.

My apartment building has a lounge on the first floor that is big enough to fit everyone, and I reserved it for Saturday during the tournament time.

For parking: park across the street in Home Depot's parking lot (339 Speen St, Natick, MA 01760) and walk over to 5 Chrysler Rd. If anyone is having difficulty finding the entrance, call me at 228-216-5837 when you arrive.

I apologize for the late change, but the game store just told me yesterday and I had to scramble to find a replacement venue.

The times are the same: arrive 1 pm, start rolling dice for round 1 at 1:30.

For prizes, I ordered some Heroscape prizes (figures, dice, etc.), and the $5 entry fee will be used to offset that instead of to provide a prize in the form of store credit for the game store.

I just added a tag for everyone who has a heroscapers.com account that I know of. I posted earlier on the reddit thread where some people said they were coming, so hopefully they see the notification from that.

I think there was someone from your Youtube thread as well - can you post a reply to them at some point letting them know?

That should then cover everyone.

Saweet! yeah, you're fine. I think we have you listed in the OP...but we'll get down the other +1's you've got. And, if you're able to confirm that 2nd +1 than that of course would always be helpful.

Yep, thanks for posting here to confirm.

Let me know tomorrow if you'll have the extra +1 or not, so I can have the right number of maps ready to go.

Looking forward to it!

Curry_Noodles July 6th, 2019 09:19 AM

Re: New England Heroscape: Red, Fight, & Blue
 
Good morning all!

Confirming that my extra +1 will be coming - looking forward to battling !

You wouldn't happen to need a code or a card to get into the building right?

Chris Perkins July 6th, 2019 12:38 PM

Re: New England Heroscape: Red, Fight, & Blue
 
The building does require a code, but the room we're in is right next to the front door and I'll let everyone in. Text or call me at [removed]

Couldn't make it out today - had my dad's birthday party to go to which was like 5 hours. Sorry I've been a series of no-shows, I'll make it out to a NE event one of these days. Hope all of you had a smooth tournament and good time scaping.

I was going to bring this army if I attended:

Marcus 100

Guilty 30
NGS 90
MBS 50
Isamu 10
