Question Heroclix in 2019?

So I was playing a match of C3G Heroscape at my LGS, and I had a couple of guys approach who noticed I was using Heroclix figures. They asked what I was doing and I gave them a brief explanation of Heroscape. They went on to tell me that they are currently trying to get a group together for Heroclix to meet on a regular basis and host tournaments for it.

My question is, what are your opinions on Heroclix?

I don't want to "ditch" Heroscape, since my favorite aspect of it is the 3D terrain and I know Heroclix doesn't have that, at least not in its basic form. Maybe I could convince the group to invest in 3D Heroclix terrain? I would offer up my own Heroscape terrain for use with the Heroclix system, but the Square-to-Hex transition doesn't quite mesh 1:1. Some people are Ok with the changes but most would probably not consider it to be 'true' Heroclix.

My biggest problem with Heroscape right now is that no one in my area (South Texas) really plays it. If I want to join a tournament, I would have to drive quite a long distance. So this could possibly be an opportunity to finally be part of a similar style of group?

I really don't know anything about Heroclix though. Are all figures compatible with all other figures? Are only figures from newer sets allowed in Tournaments (Like Magic: the Gathering formats)? If anyone could shed some light on this, I would appreciate it. Preferably people who have experience with both games.

Re: Heroclix in 2019?

I don't have any direct experience with Heroclix, but my impression isn't favorable. Enough so that even though I own hundreds of Heroclix, I've happy cut almost every single one off of their bases and thrown those bases away, replacing them with ones that are appropriate for Heroscape.

Of course, I'm C3G through and through, so I can't help myself.

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

I wonder if you're anywhere at all near @japes or @Spidey'tilIDie

I've never played HeroClix and thus can't really speak for it, but yeah, unfortunately most of the scene in Texas seems to be centered up here in the north. I was much further South (in San Antonio) before I left for college, but I'm not sure when I'll be there again.

My recommendation if you want to play HeroScape, though, is to start the scene yourself. It may be slow, but if you keep running events and inviting people, you could start a local following of the game. Fortunately, getting people interested in HeroScape is often easy if you have it set up, since the game looks cool and can often intrigue passerby.

Re: Heroclix in 2019?

From the very little I know about Heroclix, I like it a lot. My biggest problem is not having anyone to play with right now. Not many people are familiar with it at all I think.
