Re: AoA:Vanguard Campaign Postmortem

I was on the Hereoscapers Fb page when the early art concepts were being dropped there. This is someone unscientific, I know, but I paid attention to the "Likes" on the different units that were...

Re: AoA:Vanguard Campaign Postmortem

I don't mind having factions as an abstract idea in HS, but they never have been nor should be a marketed focus. If a faction happens to come about due to certain design decisions, that's great....

Re: AoA:Vanguard Campaign Postmortem

Hasbro's/AH's misallocation of priorities and resources (lore and apps instead of marketing) has been discussed extensively, but I haven't seen many specifics mentioned about the relationship between...

Re: AoA:Vanguard Campaign Postmortem

Most likely due to legal reasons, though the confirmed reasons may always remain opaque to the majority of us (for other legal reasons).

More critically: Why was so much time and focus placed on...

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

I wouldn't put it past a tanking billion-dollar company to internally pump their own numbers to avoid more failed projects on their scoreboard. Far more questionable practices have been done for far...

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

The debate about the shift in tone with the AoA units is neither a point to be ignored nor invalid. I've seen it mentioned at least a few times in the past few months that ClassicScape has a...

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

I did a quick internet search for pictures of this display, but didn't find anything. Do you have or are there any pictures of this tucked away somewhere?

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

This was something I brought up over in the Discord server a couple of weeks ago. Comparing the "I know what that is!" value between RotV and AoA, RotV has a considerably lower need for explanation...

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

As the clock continues to tick, I've been increasingly noticing that the execution of (and the marketing for) the haslab doesn't really know who the target audience is supposed to be. Is it intended...

Re: Heroscape: Age of Annihilation is here! Back it on Hasla

An open-ended deadline like this means it may never fund. From a consumer standpoint, I wouldn't want to pledge $250 that may or may not be charged at some point in time. A far better option for the...

Re: DropBox for Site Improvement Ideas

I'm in the camp of modifying, overhauling, or eliminating the rep system. 10 years ago, it seemed to work as intended. Now, in 2022, when every opinion is a hill to die on or become upset over, the...

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

I fail to understand why the marketing team released the product image of the complete contents laid out with Sgt. Drake's sword for scale if a replica of the sword isn't included at all. It's...

Re: AOA: Playing The New Factions

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

In the event that AoA doesn't fund, I (and I'm sure many others) have been pondering what happens from that point for the official product. Business is business, but considering the amount of...

Re: The minis will not be a sea of unpainted gray

Definitely a fair point to bring up. If those folks who only want pre-painted minis don't want to put their money towards AoA, that's fine and more power to them. It could very well be that those...

Re: The minis will not be a sea of unpainted gray

This is one of the main points that bothers me about the painted/unpainted debate, namely those showing their displeasure that the new miniatures are unpainted. As you and many others have brought...

Re: Heroscape 2 Prediction Thread

I expect we'll get something like the Castle Panic Deluxe experience. If we're lucky, it will be less than $400.[/QUOTE]
I'm financially preparing for at least $350. If it's $200-$250 I'll be...

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

Assuming the haslab is successful enough to put the game on shelves, I'll be surprised if we don't see updated sets of special terrain (lava, snow, road, etc.).

Re: Heroscape 2.0 and Halloween: On Gaming Moral Sensibiliti

It's also valuable to note the general shift away from "The Hero" in entertainment media over the last decade. We've been seeing much more focus placed on anti-heroes (Deadpool), grey characters...

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

The "Hellforge" name is also an odd choice to me, with the inclusion of "hell" in the name and if AH is going for family-friendly (ages 8 and up). "Fireforge" or "Deathforge" would be a better choice...

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

My takeaway is the size of the base. It's no larger than the 1-inch D&D bases, which makes me wonder how many new units will utilize smaller bases vs. standard bases vs. DW9K bases.


Also, I'm...

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

I actually wouldn't mind if the Vorid Burrowbreaker had that as its name as a unique hero. There's already precedent for generic names for unique heroes, a la Venoc Warlord (and the Marro Hive, if we...
