You can buy on eBay or BoardGameGeek Market for $10-20 (plus shipping) fairly easily, and honestly this is way easier to get than buying individual figures for most C3V releases, even buying 2 copies. We need some more Mariedians and Soulborg figures, so these are decent options. You can even make customs that use 6, 8, 10, or 12 sided dice for a power. Not to mention, anyone who buys can play Advanced Battleball by @mrbistro .



P.S. I second @surerfrog's link to Before Heroscape - the best post on this entire site.

And my opinion is to make some common squads/heroes and some unique squads and heroes from each, as many people (including myself) already have sets of both games, and at or less than $1 per figure they are both cheaper than any pre-painted figure anywhere besides common Heroclix, not to mention it is way easier for most people to get than having to scour tons of sites to get single figures.

Am I the only one who wants to see a race of Cylons in Heroscape (or Cyborgs if you are not a BSG fan) as Battleball figs would be great for that - someone can create a story that says the Mariedians infiltrated Soulborgs or vice-versa, and yes use Isadora as a planet for some.
I picked up a set a while ago for a great price.

You can't do much better for prepainted minis to fill out a sci fi faction.
