A few questions..

I've been playing HS for about 6 months now and the game is plain awesome. I have a few questions.

1) Is spartacus really worth the overpriced 200 points?

2) I have the following sets: Valkyrie master set, castle set, road to the forgotten forest set, heroes of barrenspur, Raknark's vision, grut orcs, agents and gladiators, minions and maro warriors. Which set would you suggest getting next (can be flagbearer, terrain or units)

3) Based on the sets i have which would be the Best 500 point Army. Me and my Family tend to play alot using 500 points.

Odds are your "Best" 500 point army will include either Q9 or Nilfheim although the true greatness of Heroscape is that there is no perfect or best army

#1. Yes, IF you put him with the other gladiators.
#2. I don't see Orm's Return on that list, I'd get one of those.
#3. Start a thread in the competitive armies forum, you'll get lots of good armies there.

Aldin should be here soon to greet you.

To answer those....

1. Only if you use the other gladiators. if not then no
2. I'd go with Knights and Swog Rider. then get Sir Gilbert(Jandar FB)
3. it was mentioned before, check out the thread in this forum about armies.

Do you have Roman Legionnaires? Its a good synergy with Me-Burg-Sa.
Good luck to you. it never fails to have Raelin to help your units, just so you know.

Give them nothing! But take from them everything!

Welcome to the boards, Bloodrage!

On behalf of our advice offering and Gladiator squad anticipating community i extend to you a laurel and a hearty handshake.

Since I have nothing more to add on 2&3 than has already been said I'll just add my bit on #1. Many here believe that there will be a (common?) squad of gladiators in a future release that will really boost Spartacus' perceived value. As it stands, for 380 points you get three figures that are vulnerable to Medium targeting specials and ranged attacks while at the same time only getting a single attack with each order marker. They are powerful figs, but not very flexible in usage. For 290 you might consider dropping Retarius, leaving 210 points in a 500 point army - one of Heroscape's perfect numbers (as it allows for Braxas, Charos, 3x4th Mass, Q9+Guilty or Eldgrim, etc.)

Another question, does the +4 range glyph affect those who are adjacent attackers with range 1?

Just an idea - why not read the rules?

Here's another idea, shut up and play nice. No need to be cruel.



Anyway....the range +4 glyph boosts the range of all figures with a range of 4 or more next to their "range" number on the right side of the card. It doesn't matter if they are using that range to attack an adjacent figure or not, although they would have to shoot the adjacent figure first due to engagement rules.

That was uncalled for, I only suggested that he reads the rules as they are clearly written in black and white for the question asked and I get told to "shut up" - nice community you have here.

You know very well you were being snippy. Saying the equivalent of RTFM is quite rude.
