Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

Sure, but based on how people like KC (lead play tester/designer) and others in the know have talked, it's pretty clear that PHG had no plans to continue it or revive it when it ended. I don't think...

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I think it's highly unlikely that we see any more SW. It's a great game, but it wasn't supported well and wasn't released properly. The last SW event at GenCon was 2-3 years ago, so I don't really...

Re: Unit Debate # 69 Arrow Gruts vs Blade Gruts

lefton4ya a few nights ago I added my blurb for Blades:

Blade Gruts: Perhaps the most underrated bonding melee squad in the game. Movement is very underrated, and 6 move provides amazing...

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

Can confirm. You only take a disengage while moving, so you had to use all "before moving" abilities before then. You would not be able to heal a leaving engagement attack's wound.

Re: Simulating Cyprien's Demise

Nice work! I'm always interested in seeing more math in HeroScape.

I don't love Q10 against Cyprien, because Cyprien can just opt out of the engagement and murder the rest of your army. The best...

Re: Gen Con 2019

Iím glad this is your processs, but it does put a lot of onus on you (and others) to branch out and test those maps just as much as we already do/did then...(which seems counter-intuitive but okay),...

Re: Gen Con 2019

Ok, I’ll bite.

I built last year’s map pool. I may or may not be one of the people working on it this year.

1. To say that the time to use BoV maps has passed is ridiculous. We use them because...

Re: The BOOKS of Heroscape INDEX

Wow, quite an undertaking. I'm honored to have my ranks included in the official books; guess I better hit the rest of the unit descriptions ASAP. Thanks superfrog!

Re: The Book of Atlaga the Kyrie Warrior

Yeah, it definitely decreases, and specifically because he is paying points for what it possibly the worst designed power in the game.

Re: The Book of Atlaga the Kyrie Warrior

He's a B+ and Witherwood doesn't really have an impact on it. He's solid but not great, and would be better if he was 10-20 points cheaper and did not have the Bolt.

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...

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.

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

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: 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.
