True, Deroche! Bothi directed that to the wrong person.

Jexik, are you planning to add SoV/C3V customs to that list? After all, they are the continuation of HeroScape.

Just a thought.

Re: What's in an Order Marker? (D1, D2, and D3 up)

you act as if having more of the same common helps so, are you allowed to to use all of your figures on a common? e.g. if I have 3 rat cards can I use 9 rats?

No, even if you have 3 Rat cards, you would still only be able to activate 4 of your 12 rats. However, if one dies you can still move 4 rats, unlike how the Unique Squads work.

No.

I've not played with those figures, so I won't discuss how to use them. I don't play Heroscape very much at all anymore.

The main lesson of the article isn't the list at the bottom or end of each section but to learn how to make an army so that you can get the most out of your activations.

Right. What makes common-based offenses powerful is how they can absorb casualties and still get their full number of attacks per turn. Unique Squads are a risk because their offense is drastically reduced by casualties, while Unique Heroes are risky because although their offense is not reduced incrementally, they are a high risk for losing entire turns (order markers) when they fall.

How I wish I could have my vote back! I voted back when I first came to the site and didn't use order markers, so this didn't use to pertain to me.

If it makes you feel any better I can't even vote on this because the multiple-colored text basically makes this unreadable for me.

Re: What's in an Order Marker? (D1, D2, and D3 up)

This is really helpful. I sometimes skip using order markers in small matches, but when I play competitively, they are very important. Units that rely on other unit and blah blah blah. Order markers as very useful and so is this article
