Weapons not yet in HeroScape

I was thinking about this today for some reason. What are the weapons not (yet) found in HeroScape?

There are, obviously, lots of little fiddly bits, such as various knives or throwing stars or things. But what are the major categories missing?

For instance, there are, I think, no crossbows in HeroScape to date.

There are no bazookas, either, although we have hand grenades.

Of course there is no artillery, because we are talking about weapons that one person (giant, dragon, big ugly guy) can carry. So, no anti-ballistic missile defense, and no ballistic missiles either.

There are no maces, although the Sentinels have war hammers.

There are plenty of swords, lances, cleavers, axes, arrows, and stuff like that. (Someone should make a "definitive list" of the weapons.)

So, what, aside from bare hands, dragon swoops, and magical spells, am I missing? What weapons does HeroScape need?

Excellent topic Rev.

One weapon I would like to see that has not been implemented yet would be a Flame Thrower. I guess you can say Mimring has the closest thing to one, but it would be pretty cool to have some futuristic robots/aliens with some heat.

Crossbows and maces would be great. The Knights need crossbowmen, and another squad of knights could have men with maces, or maybe a squad of egyptians.

I wouldn't mind seeing staves. We have spears and magic staves, but how about just a regular bo staff? Would be cool for a squad of monks, maybe.

I had also thought about spiked shields, like the targ. something to cause damage on a "Sheild Bash" or charge type of move. Or maybe add some risk to attacking that figure. Like counterstrike.

I agree, and that could be the perfect excuse for a Range 2 unit.

Environmentalists make great compost.

Squad support weapons-Tripod mounted weapon teams would be cool.

Mines and Minelayers of some type (not including glyphs).

Wow! Such quick responses. And we should remember that the Yo-Yo was originally a weapon as well.

What about the fabled Shillelagh, or bolas? Both of these are totally feasible.

I like both of these, too, Roland. Nicely done. The folks over at Hasbro are going to have to thank us for brain-storming this.
