VLP's Custom Marvel & DC & a few others

Hi everyone,

Here I am posting links to some of the Marvel characters that my son and I have made. Some are characters that I haven't found elsewhere on the forums and others are characters that I have modified a little. I will also be adding DC characters and a few others from time to time.

I welcome your feedback on the card designs as well as the characters themselves and their playability.

Hope you enjoy these.

Thanos

I am planning on adding Air Walker and Morg very soon.

Here is one I did just for fun because my son and I are Dr. Who fans.

Re: VLP's Custom Marvel & DC & a few others

If I'm being honest, I think Silver Surfer and Thanos have too many powers on their card. I know that they have a bevy of powers, but so does Superman. The real trick to making Heroscape cards (One that I feel the designers did pretty well with the original Marvelscape I might add) is that you need to be creative in the way you represent various powers on a card. For instance, Spiderman can climb walls and web swing, but the designers realized that making a power that allowed Spidey to climb walls would just be redundant if he had Web Swing. So they made WS usable in more instances to represent the fact that he could travel in more ways than one.

Re: VLP's Custom Marvel & DC & a few others

I am glad you took a shot at the High Evolutionary. He is moderately prominent character and yet there are very few cards made for him, perhaps because he is really hard to capture.

My question is how you priced a character like him. I have a number of epic characters that are very difficult to price and I always like hearing methods/ideas. I have playtested my epic characters upwards of 10-15 time and am still making periodic tweaks.

EDIT: Was also going to add that on the HE card, it looks like your image was stretched. Either that or it was just a poor image to start with. It ultimately doesn't matter for game play, but I know that I won't use a card if it doesn't look nice. Just me being picky, but thought it would be an easy thing to change.

Re: VLP's Custom Marvel & DC & a few others

I like how you started your review "If I'm being honest", sounded like Simon Cowel on American Idol. I really appreciate your honest assessment. You are right, too many powers. I know it should be 3 and maybe 4 at the very most. I made adjustments to both cards removing some powers so the cards aren't so cluttered. Thanks for your input. What you all did with the C3G customizations is amazing.

Re: VLP's Custom Marvel & DC & a few others

The point total for HE is just an estimate based on other Event Hero's like Galacticus and Anti-Monitor and where I figured HE fit compared to them. My son and I are going to start playing testing him. I put his card up just to get some feedback even though I haven't played tested him yet.

And you are right, the picture is stretched some. It was the picture I liked the most but it didn't quit fit. I can fix that. I feel the same way, I won't use a card if I don't like how it looks. That's all part of being immersed in the game.

Thanks for your input.

Re: VLP's Custom Marvel & DC & a few others

Might I suggest that you type up your powers here as well. If I had an easy post to quote that contained powers I would be happy to make suggestions there as well. Cards are looking better, BTW! My experience of Event Heroes is that heavy tweaking usually take place once you playtest them a couple times.

Re: VLP's Custom Marvel & DC & a few others

Yeah that makes a lot of sense. I imagine there will be a lot of tweaking. Even with the other Unique Hero's I've made because I haven't play tested them yet. When I get a chance I will post the powers for each of these characters. I appreciate any advice you can give. I'm very new to this (only found out about Heroscape about a month ago).

Anyway here is Air Walker

Re: VLP's Custom Marvel & DC & a few others

If it helps at all, here is my Korvac card. It has been playtested by a number of people over 10-15 games and I am pretty happy with the cost (so far...long process with epic characters). Perhaps some rough comparisons will help you narrow some more?
