Finding a bit of joy I had forgotten through Heroscape.

So I have been playing Heroscape for 15 years now. I never had much money growing up so I settled on only buying one pack every once in a while. As I got older I came to realize that to field effective armies you really need 3-5 squads of common squads. So I began buying multiples around the release of wave 8. Going back I had tried to get multiples of everything, but unfortunately one wave had always eluded me, Wave 4. Here recently I made good friends with some guys and gals at my university who you would never guess would enjoy tabletop games. So finally finding friends to play heroscape with regularly, I looked back at what I hadn't aquired. I am happy to say I have placed an order online for 2-3 additional squads of Greeks, Vipers, and Aubriens. Meaning I will now have all three in multiples of 5, (I already had 3 squads of Gladiatrons.) I cannot express how excited I am to finally get my hands on one of the biggest wants of my childhood. I'm sure I sound silly but I figured if anyone would understand the feeling it would be my fellow Heroscapers. Buying scape is a feeling I will soon miss as I complete my collection. So I will savor it while I can.

Re: Finding a bit of joy I had forgotten through Heroscape.

Its a great feeling to be able to add to a collection. Have you considered buying the C3V stuff? It might help with the feeling of expansion.

“General, your reinforcements have arrived.” I think about that blurb from time to time. I can’t quite remeber which piece of Scape material had it though.

Re: Finding a bit of joy I had forgotten through Heroscape.

Yeah, I've been rebuying all the C3V stuff lately. I went a little overboard on it actually.

Re: Finding a bit of joy I had forgotten through Heroscape.

I've probably purchased over 1,000 figures for C3G, with no end in sight!

I get what you're saying, though. I only have two squads of Aubriens and Venocs. It was definitely not enough.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Finding a bit of joy I had forgotten through Heroscape.

I still remember like it was yesterday the feeling of racing to the back of the Target store, to see if there was something new or maybe something in the clearance aisle. I love playing, but the accumulating had its own special thrill, too.

And I'm glad you like the C3V stuff, Tmac! Praise from the old guard - my peers - is especially valuable to me.

Re: Finding a bit of joy I had forgotten through Heroscape.

Ahhh, Wave 4. Barely released in Australia - it instantly became legendary. Scarcity plus weak Aussie dollar against USD meant heartache for me, when I finally gave in to "having to have it all!" I don't have the Aubriens - but man, have I paid through the teeth for what I picked up! Good times...

Betty or Veronica...?

Re: Finding a bit of joy I had forgotten through Heroscape.

Wave 4 was always the wave I had the least of and that I intended to get more of but never did. I think I only have 3 sets of vipers and greeks, always meant to get a 4th. And I've been 'meaning' to get a 4th set for about 11 years now lol...same with a 4th lava set. Thankfully Wave 4 has two unique packs and is a weak wave overall, for those trying to get figures/packs from it. I think Wave 6 was the other Wave I had a low amount of. I think I only have 3 sets of Shades.

I really need to go back and organize my collection. I sold a lot of the excess this past year and now I really need to go back through and know where I'm at with things.

(I accidentally sold a set of Harquebus not realizing I now only have x3, was pissed when I realized that haha, I wanted to keep x4. Be careful with selling stuff online, it gets addictive!)
