Re: Uniques being Uncommons from Master sets?

That's a good point on the different philosophies. It's hard to take my mind out of what I usually value and how I usually weigh and gage the metagame I'm playing into.

Also glad to see you...

Re: Uniques being Uncommons from Master sets?

Double Grimnak is probably fine, and double Tornak is definitely fine (you can already double up on the enhancement by running both Grimnak and Tornak). If you're running 2x Grimnak and Nerak, you're...

Re: Is it even possible...

Thanks for the kind words! When I have more time I'll get back on writing unit descriptions.

At the end of the day, run what you want; however, I think I'd rather have at least some other Kyrie...

Re: Is it even possible...

I think for that format, you're probably better off with Nilf, Major Q10, and either A) Cyprien and Isamu (for 4x Stingers/other range common spam) or B) Eltahale and Marcu (for Q9/other bigs). Q10...

Re: The Book of Death Chasers of Thesk

Basically this. You should not just bum rush in, instead you should still be slow rolling. It's better to think about your starting zone being effectively 5 spaces farther up the map than your...

Re: Feedback on rules summary for novice tournament

That makes sense. I can see how it would save time as well. I've never actually attended a tournament, so I'm diving in host this "friends and family" one based on the advice and ideas posted on this...

Re: Feedback on rules summary for novice tournament

No one really cares; your army should perform fine regardless if you have a larger or smaller ruin. Generally, you just walk to a map and sit down on a side of the table and start getting your area...

Re: Feedback on rules summary for novice tournament

Looks quite good! A couple minor notes:

Rolling for start zone selection and army placement is used only in certain groups; for example, GenCon, New England, Long Island, and MARS events generally...

Re: Orc's Tips to Improve Fast

Fair enough; probably worth adding. Not a mistake I really see people make at GenCon, but certainly helpful for newer players.

Re: The Book of Atlaga the Kyrie Warrior

Yes, as it says "Atlaga may only attempt once per game" rather than "you may only attempt once per game".

Re: Orc's Tips to Improve Fast

I just watched this short video, and although Scape isn't a wargame, the subject matter is very relevant to Scape. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

Re: Cleon's Unit Tier List (Update: 11/26/18)

I plan on writing a whole thing on Raelin SotM. I've discussed with a few people already what my thoughts are on her, but basically my analysis is that at 120, not only is she not as good as RotV...

Re: Classic Heroscape Power Rankings

I think this is a really good set of final changes for the official rankings. As you said before, yours nicely reflects the power levels back in the earlier part of the game's competitive life, and I...

Re: Orc's Power Rankings

Yeah, I think B+ is about right for Venocs. Maxing threat range on them helps even out the fact that they have 0 defense, and Frenzy is good, but variance keeps them in check.

Re: Orc's Tips to Improve Fast

Pulling 10 hour retail shifts makes it so I don’t really care enough to argue, but all I have are hundreds of tournament game statistics between myself, my father, and the rest of the KoM. That...

Re: Cleon's Unit Tier List (October 2018)

Sure I guess, interesting points but I don’t really agree with any of them. You’ve moved some units up and some down, changing breakpoints. 1 could still be A+, 2 A, etc.

And of course average is...

Re: Cleon's Unit Tier List (October 2018)

Looks pretty solid.

Disagree on Nerak. No one that plays Gruts takes Raelin, Nerak is the better choice. Partially because of value, partially because of how the point limits and formats tend to...

Re: Orc's Tips to Improve Fast

Two parts to this. First, surely the Charos player should be preventing the Mindshackle? If they let NGS waltz up to Charos, they deserve to be shackled.

Second, if they do all they can and that...

Re: Kick Butt Armies for: Elementals and Wyrmlings

Eltahale is definitely my pick. I actually like:

4x BW
2x RW
1X WW
Eltahale
Q10

Q10 helps against your worst matchup, Hounds, a ton. Eltahale for big stuff. Wyrmlings for everything else....

Re: Selling my entire Heroscape Collection!

FWIW, maybe $18 on eBay, but doesn't really look like a $25 collection (more like $15). You'll have better luck piecing it out; you generally need to give a much larger discount than what you're...

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

I tried him with a few different builds. Yeah, he works fine as a straight bruiser, but then Occult Zeal is just an unnecessary power.[/QUOTE]

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Re: Tree Town Open XIV - New Venue

All around, diverse top 4, this is peak HeroScape. Great armies but not the absolute most...
