It actually makes sense in a way, for the more casual 'scaper. In order to use the common squads to their best effect, you need to have 3+ squads of most of them. But most of the unique heroes, especially the ones that don't bond, are just fine by themselves. So if you're trying to put together a medium-sized collection, it makes more sense to just get one of each of the hero packs, and forget about the common packs.
I have a customer in Taiwan who buys dozens and dozens of HERO packs but no commons. When I asked why, he told me that because Heroscape is so difficult for them to obtain, they mostly just use Heroes for their armies. So his Hero sets are in great demand.

I think I may have gotten the last few SotM master sets from WotC. I checked Alliance's inventory list, and they seem to be out of stock as well. Let me know if you locate another source.
I use Aladdin as my primary distributor. They are a small family owned business kinda like Cyborgs Puzzles and Games and Housemouse Games, so I prefer to do business with them. I also like their billing policies better. They seem to keep Heroscape available longer. Last time I ordered from them they still had wave 1,8, and 10 in stock, though were running low on 10. They still had plenty of SOTM last I checked, it has been almost one month though. I use Alliance as a backup and have actually only ordered from them twice. I also have direct accounts with FFG, Chessex, and GW though.

I guess it was silly of me to say it was strange. I actually already know that uniques are great for people looking to build a playable army without having to spend a lot of money. I often point out how a person can buy one of each wave 8 hero packs and a set of dice (which I sell for $2 along with a set of order and wound markers), and have a playable army at a variety of points for less than $25. Even I don't own every common out there, (in fact I own less now than I did 6 months ago), but I do own every unique pack out there.



The largest source of Heroscape in Wyoming Washington, now selling loads of terrain.

Re: HOUSE MOUSE EASTER SALE, Sun. Apr 24

21 packs bought and I am already budgeting for the next sale! I think I am addicted. I didn't even bat an why when my wife told me she was going to buy a bigger dining room table and new chairs even though the table and chairs cost more than my collection at current eBay prices. All I could see was the repurposing of the old table as my new gaming table.

Rounded out my D13 and Romans and got a pack of elementals. Sorry I missed out on the Dividers/Protectors though. Even with shipping, about $10 a pack. Solid.

Re: HOUSE MOUSE EASTER SALE, Sun. Apr 24

Missed the sale (due to time zone difference). What were the 'special items' Sandra hinted at last week? Anyone pick up some hard-to-find surprises?

Betty or Veronica...?
