Welcome to Heroes of Star Wars Scape (HoSS)
Heroes of Star Wars Scape (HoSS)

There is a ton of potential for Star Wars in Heroscape. There is a surplus of miniatures and a large fan base. Here, a portion of the Heroscape community brings Star Wars Heroscape to our galaxy.

1) To have a collection of mainstream Star Wars Custom Cards that are compatible with each other and the official Heroscape License in addition to Vallhalla Customs cards.

2) For each custom card to accurately reflect the character or characters on its face and to maintain a thematic feel to its design.

3) To create maps that reflect the theme of locales depicted in the movies, TV shows and books.

Group Members
Spoiler Alert!

Project history
This project began on May 19, 2009. It was originally formed by Balantai and began its life as a small group workshop project to create Star Wars custom cards. Over time, the group membership has changed and the project has picked up steam. As a public workshop group, HoSS has created dozens of cards including: Bounty Hunters, Jedi and Sith, Trooper Squads, Droids, Spies, Explosive Charges and Scoundrels. Additionally, a few Force powers have been created that can be used by most Jedi and Sith. A HoSS card template has been designed by mac122. mac's card template was based on work originally created by A3n.

In 2012 the group decided to begin a more rigorous playtesting process to perfect and finalize our cards. Thanks to the administrators of this site and the advocacy of Xorlof, the HoSS project was granted our own sub-forum, including a private section. The intention of the group is to continue designing cards and releasing them to the public. Additionally, some designs will be done as public group projects.

Project Future
HoSS plans to continue expanding the Star Wars universe into the Heroscape format by creating and playtesting existing and future Star Wars characters. We also design and test both competitive style maps as well as scenario maps.

New members are very important to the group and anyone is eligible to earn a spot in the group. The quickest way to earn group membership is through helping out with playtesting. As with any custom project, the more playtesters we can get, the sooner we will be ready to release the Star Wars goodness to you!
