Smile New to Heroscape!

Hello everyone!
I am pretty new to heroscape. I first heard about the game about two years ago after I picked up Arena of the Planeswalkers. A little time on the internet and eBay later and I bought a small set of tiles just to make AOTP a little more interesting. Still had no idea what heroscape was, but then I stumbled upon this website and saw how cool the maps you all have built are. Decided to check out some battles on YouTube and watched a bunch of Sir Heroscape’s videos. Naturally I was like “holy crap I have to try this out!”

So here I am two years and about $1,000 later and I’ve amassed a decent sized collection. 1- ROTV, 1- SOTM, 1- BFTU, 1- FOTA, 2- RTTFF, 1- VW, 1- TT, Wave 1, Wave 2, Wave 5, Orm’s Return, extra set of ROTV tiles, an extra squad of 4th Mass, and (because he’s like the coolest dude ever) Kaemon Awa. Such a shame I didn’t know about the game earlier when it was still in production. The prices on eBay are absurd! It’s almost painful to spend that much; But as I’m sure you all know, “I just have to have it!” Lol
Any tips, tricks, ideas, info? Any maps or scenarios you could recommend?
Any info would be greatly appreciated since I am still basically a beginner lol
But I’d like to thank you all for the awesome maps you’ve built and videos you’ve posted. If it weren’t for your maps and videos, I don’t think I would have ever gotten into Heroscape.
Thank you!!!

Re: New to Heroscape!

If you're interested in superhero 'Scape, check out C3G. They have like 700 cards for Marvel, DC, TMNT, all that good stuff.

If you're interested in Classic 'Scape continuations, you can check out the C3V and SoV for a cohesive, high quality canon extension.

If you're interested in meeting up with people in your area for tournaments, check out the Meet Other 'Scapers area of the forum and see if you get any bites.

If you're interested in playing in an active online tournament scene, check out the Online Heroscape Games and Events section. We love newbs.

Re: New to Heroscape!

Welcome to the site, @Noziroh ! I second superfrog in saying that this community's C3V/SoV releases are fantastic options for expanding a classic HeroScape collection, and many of the figures are available for significantly cheaper than normal HeroScape will sell for nowadays.

Re: New to Heroscape!

Welcome to the community! I hope to see you around more!

I will second what others have already said. Both the C3V Project (for classic Heroscape customs) and the C3G Project (for superhero customs) have been running for years and continue to put out well-tested and balanced units. Given the price of the official Heroscape products these days, its often a lot cheaper to purchase the minis used by these custom projects.

As for maps, check out the Battlefields of Valhalla thread for the pinnacle of competitive maps throughout the years. A newer project, Architects of the Realms of Valhalla, also puts together competitive maps.

Like Superheroes and Comics?
C3G Project is Always Looking for New Members!

Head here to get started!

Playtesting is the most helpful thing!

Re: New to Heroscape!

There are also tons of customs by individuals that are pretty amazing, so lots of options out there. If you have access to a 3D printer you can even make some stuff for yourself.

Creating molds and making resin casts is also an option. So many great ideas here for custom figures and terrain, it can be overwhelming at first. Take your time to comb through all the goodness. Good luck!

Re: New to Heroscape!

Welcome! I'm new as well but I have yet massed a collection for myself yet. But I'm hoping to get some figures/sets soon. I'm ready to play.

I'm going to head over to the forums and get some cool map designs/layouts when I get my set

I just checked out the C3V and C3G customs and I feel like I just hit the jackpot! All the units look so cool I canít wait to try them out. Maybe someday Iíll have a few customs of my own to share!

If you fancy creating at any point, C3G's always looking for new people to get involved - no pressure, but if you'd at any stage like to check out the Playtesting thread, it'd be appreciated, and you could probably swiftly find yourself a part of the community and start creating your own 'official' units! We're always looking for new recruits... yes.... always looking...

That's great to hear! I'd say that most of the C3V designs are either at the same level of quality or better than the official releases, so if you see anything that you like, don't be afraid to pick it up! I also look forward to reading your customs if you share them in the future.

Re: New to Heroscape!

@Lazy Orang That sound great I'll check it out!

@Astroking112 From what I've looked at so far I agree! I just ordered the figure for Omegacron

He's one of the ones that I really like! Now I just wish that I had some Omnicron Repulsors to use with him.

I also recommend keeping an eye on the Miniatures Announcement thread. Given the nature of the project, many of the figures become rare/expensive by the time that the design is released, but this thread contains announcements that the figure will be used by C3V at some point. It may take a long time (in some cases, several years), so if you ever find these figures for cheap, it's worth it to keep them in the back of your mind.

Re: New to Heroscape!

Not only is Astroking112 giving you great advice in this thread, but here's some more from elsewhere:

Even if those aren't the designs you're most excited by, they're well worth adding to your collection at that price.
