Wave 9: Blackmoon's Siege, First Post has Update 5/6

NEW INFO FROM SANDRA AT HOUSE MOUSE GAMES:

Here are the descriptions from each pack:

Braves and Brawlers: The Mohican River Tribe lie in wait, blend in with their surroundings, and pick off their approaching enemies with pinpoint accuracy. But face to face, they truly come alive, fighting with furious might. The Capuan Gladiators are ready to charge forward at their leader’s side to land the first blow of any battle. This pack includes 6 painted figures and 2 army cards.
Dwarves and Repulsors: Stout and fearless, no opponent can intimidate the Axegrinders of Burning Forge. Determined and calculating, they sweep over the battlefield and lay waste to all manner of beasts and villains. Only the Soulborg can defeat the Soulborg. Therein lies the power of the Omnicron Repulsors. With Repulsors on your side, you will shutdown your opponents’ Soulborg traitors. This pack includes 7 painted figures and 2 army cards.
Dividers and Defenders: The ranks of your Marro Dividers are seemingly endless. Your opponents try to cut them down, only to see them duplicate and come back stronger than ever! Ullar’s elite Protectors are masters of teamwork. They patrol the skies and strike fear in even the most powerful heroes with focused attacks from lethal crossbows. This pack includes 6 painted figures and 2 army cards.
Heroes of the Moon Tribe: Migol Ironwill swings his dwarven war hammer with earth-shattering might. Brave Arrow of the Mohicans stealthily tracks down his foes. Atlaga soars high and carries the deadly Bolt of the Witherwood. Kumiko, trained in the lethal art of ninjutsu, savages enemies with a barrage of flurrying blows. Marro overlord Tul-Bak-Ra uses his advanced alien powers to teleport himself - and his troops – across the battlefield. This pack includes 5 painted figures and 5 army cards.

Lots of yummy HeroScape goodness for the summer

We'll offer these sets for pre-release ordering right after WAVE 1 arrives.

Well it's been a interesting couple of days here for me, but with Truth's blessing, I'm very happy to share with you the press release that just hit my inbox:

I know that Truth is working diligently to grab some sneak-peak pics. In the meantime, let the conjecture and speculation commence (or continue)! Huzzah!

"Braves and Brawlers?" "Darkmoon's Seige?" Boy I hope there's a pirate in there somewhere!

Nope. It's all on the up-and-up. Really: after the last couple of days, I'm not looking to tick anyone else off.

Re: Wave 9: Blackmoon's Seige, Announced!!!

Nah, if it were a joke the new figures would be described as a lot sillier. This actually makes sense.

"Braves and Brawlers"

Paul had mentioned that American Indians were a definite for the near future.

"Heroes of the Moon"

Aquila is the Priestess of the Moon, and the storyline for the SotM campaign mentions the Kyrie Tribe of the Moon, so I expect Aquila will have at least one hero in this pack.

As for the rest, I have to say I'm really disappointed that this isn't the all-doggin wave we were promised a couple Scapetalks ago.

A "repulsor" has to be an utgar unit doesn't it?

I was just going to ask, where does everyone think our little pictured friend will fit in?

I agree, he could be a repulsor. Marro Repulsors? Brawler is pretty darn open as well and it could be a hero.

Man, I don't know, I'm just hyped for some dwarves.

2011 most played: 1. Heroscape/Monsterpocalypse/Quarriors. 4. Warhammer Invasion. 5. Last Night on Earth.

Re: Wave 9: Blackmoon's Seige, Announced!!!

What is a divider? I am glad, and can't wait for Blackmoon, but the names they have given are so general that it is just glad to know the name. Great news though!!!!!
