If the set is completely rethemed, does this also mean that the Spell cards, etc. will be unused? I'm not saying it should be done one way or another, I'm just trying to gain a better understanding of the project. I believe the OP is in referring to a complete retheme, but I could see an MTG-themed Heroscape set, similar to how the Underdark set was D&D themed.
The plan is to go with a retheme instead of adapting established MTG lore. Everything from the cryptoliths to the sculpts is intended to be themed to better fit in with the HeroScape canon.

As a result (and also because we are not looking to add new rules to the game; we're just trying to create a great introduction for people to get into classic HeroScape and the customs community), the Spell cards and other Arena of the Planeswalkers-specific rules are not planned to be used.

Cool, thanks for the clarifications. I would prefer to have kept the MTG theme personally, but I understand the intention behind the project. think it's a good concept, especially for people who don't have access to the original Master sets and want to get into HeroScape.

Best of luck!

Re: [AotV] Arena of the Valkyrie: New Master Set (Main Threa

Excited for this. Yes the only new rules would be any special powers we come up with, Cryptolith rules (can be same as Magic:AotP or different) and possibly Quick-Sand rules.

I would also be willing to contribute to card designs (Name, them, stats, powers, points). Maybe we can have some of our Louisville tournaments allow any WIP cards to playtest. I might be able to playtest at home games though, we'll see, but that would be the limiting factor in me really being able to assist.

Also personally I would love to see some of the units be common/uncommon, as the sets (especially first one which is $15 on Amazon/eBay) are so cheap comparably to other sources for Heroscape customs that 2 or 3 sets would not be that hard to do for most people. Maybe 1/3 of the heroes be uncommon and 1/2 the squads be common (more or all of these come from 1st set), but we will see how it shakes down.

Re: [AotV] Arena of the Valkyrie: New Master Set (Main Threa

Our current plan is to make most everything unique. I think there’s room for some uncommon/common heroes, but we don’t want to force people to buy multiple sets and have multiples of uniques just to get more commons.

Re: [AotV] Arena of the Valkyrie: New Master Set (Main Threa

The BtfU set sucked when you think about it, purchasing multiples of the box just for more crappy commons. Unlike a regular HS Master Set that you’d probably buy for extra terrain anyway, most folks probably won’t care enough about the meager amount of terrain in this box. Plus, the 4-man squad (Restless Zombies + Ghoul Vanguard) in the set uses figures from two boxes.

Excellent!

I hope I can contribute somehow. I'm excited to see this get off the ground.

Re: [AotV] Arena of the Valkyrie: New Master Set (Main Threa

We greatly appreciate the enthusiasm and the questions! I have updated the OP with a couple notes at the bottom linking to answers.

@lefton4ya , we will not be making Un/Common units, as this should be an easy in for players old and new. However, we will need playtesters!

Count me in for playtesting! Sometimes! Occasionally! I hope! And pray!

I have always wanted to see something be done with the 3D tiles. Glad to see that quicksand is on peoples' minds.
Are there any plans to make use of the cardboard mats and LOS blocker ruins?

I wish you high rolls, fair winds, and following seas.

Yes to the cardboard mats for sure, and I believe yes to the cardboard ruins as well. The plan is to eventually offer a set of scenarios using just the Arena of the Valkyrie Master Set to fully recreate the standalone nature of Rise of the Valkyrie.

However, because full battlefields are such a great feature of HeroScape, we also intend to design some scenarios mixing the AotP tiles with classic HeroScape terrain. This should give people a sense of direction in building their collection further (along with more options for people with limited terrain counts), giving them plenty of options for getting further into the game.

Glad to have you, @Leo Ultra !

Things continue to move forward with Pod 0 setting the example for a central thread and a unit thread.

Just now remembering to reply here, I’ve done some battlefield designs that I still need to fine tune and the AotP ruins are DEFINATELY being used, and will likely be used in some, if not all, of the battlefields with regular terrain as well. They can actually sit alright on normal hexes, and sit comfortably on water sized hexes.

And of course, if anyone wants to help design maps and scenarios please say so! I’m pretty much leading that charge anyways so as I get to it, I’ll probably make special threads/pod once the regular units are pretty well along to handle it.

Re: [AotV] Arena of the Valkyrie: New Master Set (Main Threa

That's good to hear about the ruins fitting in well on normal terrain. It certainly will open up more options for when we use sets like Swarm of the Marro, which don't have many line of sight blockers.

I intend to help on scenario design once a good number of the units are settled and we have an idea for what the overall story of the Master Set will be.
