Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

Guess it couldn't hurt to mention this:

Shadowsea: conquest of the Underlands is in it's last 24 hours just about. The game looks to get funded, but we're trying to hit stretch goals; they have a...

Re: Warmachine and Hordes General

Some of my armies are more sizable than others, and there are a few things in each faction that I haven't picked up because I either think they aren't that great or have no intent to play them.

Re: Warmachine and Hordes General

I've been playing both games for around 2 years now, just after MK II was launched.

Currently have full armies for:
Legion of Everblight (my primary force)

Re: Mage Knight making a comeback...any hope for 'Scape

I don't think our current economy can support Heroscape the way Hasbro wants and needs it to.

The way it existed, it was always somewhat stuck in the conundrum (even while successful for a long...

Re: Most 'Mis-factioned' Unit?

This was never an example of "more 'scape than D&D" in the first place though. The Wyrmlings came from the Eberron campaign setting, where no static alignment exists for Chromatic Dragons.

Re: Battleship Galaxies

Jerry Hawthorne, one of the designers, posted on the BGG forums for this game back in August:

Re: Dumb question about Confrontation

I don't think the older version of Confrontation had much about climbing, but I know nothing about Age of Ragnarok or the more recent Phoenix revival version.

Tabletop games that don't use some...

Re: Battleground fantasy warfare.

It's definitely a cheaper road to take for playing a game of that scale.

I haven't played it or looked into it because I play Warmachine/Hordes, Uncharted Seas, Firestorm Armada, and Anima...

Re: Event at KublaCon 2012

Re: CONFRONTATION: Age of Re-interest

Company is Cyanide Studio, produced by Legacy Miniatures, and distributed by CoolminiorNot.

Looks like it will be called Confrontation: Phoenix Edition, at least initially or for now. Will be...

Re: CONFRONTATION: Age of Re-interest

Confrontation is coming back under a new company.

I've heard its going to be closer to Confrontation v.3 IIRC. Age of Ragnarok was when Rakham merged its Skirmish game Confrontation with it's...

Re: How much could a HeroScape revival change?

I think something people need to know/remember is that most Miniature wargames are not random/collectible, and they stay around for a long time or become very successful. There is no randomness in...

Re: Dust Tactics in Heroscape

When a wargame is called "simple" compared to most of the others, most of that refers to its movement mechanic, and LOS mechanics. If a game uses LOS for your own turn, but your 'facing' doesn't...

Re: Conquest of Nerath

Those three are lite dungeon crawl modules in a more board game-y format. Conquest is it's own thing which is kinda like Axis and Allies or Risk but in a D&D world. Pretty different, so no, not...

Re: What would you want in a HS return?

I'd like to see a new Masterset relaunch it, with some updated stuff, new terrain LOS blockers, new figures, etc. New expansions as well as older stuff coming back into print, but with a new...

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Warmachine/Hordes x4

3 games on Saturday, one on Sunday. One was a quick demo-type game with a relatively new player who fielded only 15 points of Khadar goodness against my Cygnar. Used the...

Re: heroscape + D&D

The last 3 expansions officially *was* this. Some people made customs for other D&D minis--there are definitely some figures that will work or kinda work, and others not so much. Some of the large...

Re: Fantasy Flight Got Another Game From Hasbro

I pay 7.99-9.99 per figure for other wargames. Unpainted and unassembled. In plain boxes with no plastic mold holds. Buying HS was always...

Re: One year memorial: When did HeroScape end?

It ended with the announcement.

I don't consider people still pulling it out and playing it to be "alive." For a miniatures game like HS, as opposed to a single purchase board game, I consider it...

Re: What is the size of a large star wars miniatures base?

I believe the WOTC Star Wars minis used the same scale and measurement as the old D&Dminis Skirmish, which was one square being 1inch.

So as a rule of thumb, if the figure you're looking at is...

Re: Dust Tactics in Heroscape

Heroscape's scale is one of the most common in miniature gaming (25mm to 30mm range, HS being closer to 30mm). There are quite a few miniatures games that could be used for conversions, aside from...

Re: Wyrd Miniatures

Not really the best section of the forum to ask, but:

They would work ok, in theory, but larger figures would be on large circles too big for hexes, so that would need adjusting.
