I think this is one we are going to play a lot of.
We are definitely a board game family
Gears of War
Clank in Space
Space Cadets away missions
Legendary encounters etc.
But this is really special, such a shame it will never come back.
Not sure it's been said but grab a cheep copy of Arena of the Plane walker. you should be able to get it for 5 bucks and the cardboard mats it comes with are the same as scape and allows you to use your terrain to build up instead of laying it out as a base. the game is not bad either and you get a hand full more tiles and some compatible dice to boot.
Plus the figures are the perfect size for HeroScape miniatures, so they're fairly likely to be used either by C3V or SoV at some point in the future. At the very least, they can serve as some good proxies for rarer figures.

Re: Overwhelmed by Heroscape

+1 to all greetings
+1 to the recommendations for C3G and C3V

I would also like to add HoSS to the list. If your family likes Star Wars, there are figures there from episodes IV-VI and the miniatures from WotC are much easier to find than HeroScape. Occaisionally you can even get a bigger collection with a ton of figures. Or newer games like Star Wars Imperial Assault or Star Wars Legions also offer fitting miniatures, albeit unpainted.

Mats are also great, and could even be printed on your own. After moving to Germany, before moving my HeroScape collection, I printed off maps used for Online Scape and used them to play on. Doesn't look as cool, but is very playable.

Somewhere there are also 2-D pictures of the figures that you could print off and mount on tokens in order to have full access to all of the official stuff.

It's like football with swords or LARPing without the geeky stuff. In other words, it's awesomely perfect!

Re: Overwhelmed by Heroscape

@DarthBaggins

Another option is 3D prints. This is especially true of the Forgotten Forest trees and the glaciers and rock outcrops. They all 3D print well, and you don't need to paint them.

For figures, you'll have to do some painting, and we don't have all the squad figures scanned, but you can get almost a complete collection that way for a lot less. If you don't have a 3D printer, you might be able to get someone with a good printer to print them for you. My printer is not as high resolution as others, but I'm pretty happy with my proxies, and I'd be willing to print some at very reasonable prices.

Re: Overwhelmed by Heroscape

Time for a new thread! "Overwhelmed by Overwhelmed by Heroscape."

Seriously, Darth, I don't think there's any way to mess this up. Consider the many fine options you've seen here, and decide what feels best for you. Keep asking questions if you want.

Re: Overwhelmed by Heroscape

Man I'm in the same boat...Well almost. I was a hardcore Scaper about 10 years ago, played dozens of tournaments and had it all! Then we ran out of space and moved so I had to sell off my collection... now I'm sitting here trying to get it all back. It will take a couple years from the looks of it! The prices are insane on the second hand market. Not to mention finding people to play with locally. Good luck on your journey.

I've actually seen a few people in Dayton on here. I noticed because I spend a few weeks a year visiting my father in law in the area.

Re: Overwhelmed by Heroscape

So, where in NJ are you? If you are near NYC, hit my signature line below, and welcome to the New York City Gang of Four! We've been playing monthly for about 11 years, and just took in a new person.

If not, check out the Heroscape Community site section which will help you find or advertise for other scapers in your specific area on that thread. There is also an Events thread there for local gatherings!

One of these days I'll make my way down there for a tourny! (Or maybe just a casual game would be cool too)

But... if any of you make your way up here hit me up! I know a cool spot that's down with HS. Look up D20 Bar in Kettering Ohio!

Re: Overwhelmed by Heroscape

2.5 hrs up is probably worth a shot one of these days. FWIW, we don't really do "tournaments" down here any more, just game days where we try to mix up the rules and play unique formats. It is nice to return to standard kill 'em all games every now and then, but even then we don't have any prize structure, even for the "winner".

I will have to make sure we have more tournament-oriented/prized events structured for Oct. (NHSD) and Nov. (we play Thanksgiving weekend since we get an influx of out-of-towners visiting relatives). Hmm...
