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

WOW! Thanks for all the army lists.[/QUOTE]

No problem man. Was thinking of some more for you earlier today:

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]
Sure, I still think there's merit with a screen. Let...

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

I’m curious if you tried him with 2x Nhah Scirh, 2x Rats, Raelin or just him alongside whatever Raelin + stuff Splash army? He looks like a really good budget Bruiser option in a Splash army in a B+...

Re: Orc's Power Rankings

This is a bit of an aside, but I always thought that a dwarf army had the potential to be very good, maybe it's just because they're so expensive now they aren't really seen in tournaments. I only...

Re: Tree Town Open XIV - New Venue

Very cool to see 3x WoA, 3x PKs, Kaemon going 3-1, I love that build. Anyone know the matchups they hit?

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

Yeah, I was trying to build an army where it's not just "but what if I had Rats instead?" and utilize the TSA in a similar manner to the Stingers. Vegie's definitely right in that they are bad at...

Re: Stingers Vs Samurai Archers

What? Stingers do fine against meta builds, there's a reason they're meta themselves. 2 attack is much worse than 3. Stingers do often get height.

Let's make a couple Blades vs TSA theory matches...

Re: Stingers Vs Samurai Archers

TSA basically auto-lose to meta armies. 2 attack doesn't cut it. Stingers have 3 attack, which means they don't auto-lose to Heavies, Knights, Q9, Nilfheim, etc.

They're kinda interesting in...

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

Current meta?
Knights 100% of the time. Only thing that I’d rather have heavies for is rats, and I guess in weird cases, WoA, but that’s Grimnak, not heavies.

It’s hard to differentiate knights...

Really? I mean, sure, Hydras are everywhere in Monster Mash, but since 2012, the number of the two has been pretty equal. Nowadays especially I see more Kaemon (of course, the meta drop in RtW has an...

Re: Orc's Tips to Improve Fast

The Range on Height Fallacy is the biggest one for so many people. People have been trained for years to just run to height and shoot. That works sometimes. Often times it doesn't.

Re: Orc's Tips to Improve Fast

I'm actually pretty sure we've never played, and I think we met at GC2012?? God I'm old haha.

Good point on macro vs micro (strategy vs tactics). The best are masters at both.
