Agreed!

Re: Matt Helm's Customs -Asking opinions on a "simple" Super

Simple Superman!!!



I'm not sold on the limitation of Humans on Heat Vision. Supes is no less likely to zap an Elf, Dwarf, any other sentient being with his heat vision. Plus, I like the idea of being able to play 'Evil Superman'...

EDIT: I know the card's a bit 'loose', I just figured there'd be revisions soon!

WW

Here she is:



This is one of those cards I like so much, I'm going to have to take a photo of the mini. The stock picture is terrible!

EDIT: Make sure you check out the UPDATES to Copperhead and Blazing Skull on the previous page, MH!

Veeeery funny! I don't think I'll be doing any Disney customs soon, though. Superhero and Star Wars keeps me busy enough, though if anyone ever came out with G.I. Joe miniatures I'd be all over them!!

Re: Matt Helm's Customs -Asking opinions on a "simple" Super

Aww man, GI Joe minis in the right scale would be AWESOME!!!

Common Squads of Cobra Troops, B.A.T.S., etc. Drool...

And more ninjas!

Hopefully the upcoming film will yield some kind of licenced game with appropriately sized figures... but the movie liiks kinda terrible IMHO. Long live the 80's Joe cartoon and the Marvel Comics series!

Re: Matt Helm's Customs -Asking opinions on a "simple" Super

GARADA'S BACK!!!!!!!!!!!
And he brought forth such great gifts in the form of beautiful army cards.

So why did it take me soooo long to notice. Oh yeah, my turn to be ultra busy with work again.

Anyway those cards look great. Thank you partner. I'm glad you're happy with the way Wonder Woman came out. I think she looks sweet. Now I just have to get that mini. I do see what you mean about the pic of the mini. You're background is so vivid that a less than perfect picture makes her seem out of focus a bit. I agree, either take an actual photo of the mini, or if there is a way to dull the viberance of that beauty of a background, you may be able to get the same result (but then again, I'm no artist).

Copperhead definitely looks better. I don't know if the background I gave you is perfect (it was just a suggestion), but definitely it's better.

Now to the important one, Superman of the simple playability variety. So what should we do? How do we get Heat Vision to where it satisfies both of us, yet doesn't overpower the card? We'll have to work on that one.

And is it just me or does the pic of the mini seem like he's tilting backwards? Maybe that's the effect of him flying or maybe I need my own inner ear checked.

That looks like the official pic of the mini from the Wizkids site, and it is a bit tilted. I dunno what program Garada uses to make his cards, but GIMP allows you to rotate layers, so that pic can be easily rotated to a more upright position. I'm sure Photoshop allows this option as well.

Re: Matt Helm's Customs -Asking opinions on a "simple" Super

I'm using PhotoShop, so I can definitely rotate Supes a few degrees clockwise to get him a bit straighter. I didn't really notice it to be honest, I guess I took it as him arching his back to look more cool or something!... Flexing!!! Two tickets for the gun show, anyone? Anyway, I'll do that when I go in for the next wave of revisions.

I'm also going to photo WW for sure... give her better lighting and try to make her look a bit prettier! It may be a bit before I get to this, but it will happen. I love WW too much to let her run around looking like a mess!

Re: Matt Helm's Customs -Asking opinions on a "simple" Super

While my creative powers recharge, I've completely simplified my proposed "Original Torch" and Toro.

Please check them out to see if they are worthy of the Garada treatment.

EDIT: And we could also use some costing input on Wonder Woman.

Re: Matt Helm's Customs -Simplified Original Human Torch & T

Since simple is my theme of the day, I got to thinking about some characters that would usually be undoubtedly complex when replicated in Heroscape. My kids love the Justice League and I already worked with the G-Man on Superman and Wonder Woman. G wants me to consider a simple Batman but I like the C3G card right now so simplifying that may take some thought... or at least a little separation.

Anyway, I've always thought that Green Lantern was just too difficult to capture. Never mind that there are soooo many GL's to choose from and I know that most comic custom creators want a different card for each.

Well I thought that Mr. Simple (AKA Matt Helm) shouldn't roll that way. I don't have time to create a bunch of GL's with distinctions that are fun enough to want the whole Corps in the game. I also don't have the money to track down all the minis. In fact, I don't have any GL minis so I'll have to start looking into that.

Anyway, I got an idea as to how to replicate the complexity of the ring. Since it is only bound by imagination, and I don't like peripheral cards, I decided to use my imagination to tap into the cards already in the game. I figure this will make the ring imaginative but at the same time box it in enough to keep playability simple.

Let me know what you think (and if Garada is up for the challenge, he can pick a mini to represent the "simple and generic" Green Lantern).
-------------------------------------------------------------

GREEN LANTERN



HUMAN
UNIQUE HERO
LAWMAN
WORTHY
MEDIUM 5

LIFE: 4
MOVE: 6
RANGE: 5
ATTACK: 5
DEFENSE: 4
(EDIT: or 5?)

Points: 290

POWER RING SPECIAL ATTACK

Range Special. Attack Special.
Green Lantern may mimic any Special Attack listed on an opponentís army card. Choose any opponentís card and follow a single chosen Special Attack as if it were on this card.

FORCE FIELD
When Green Lantern, or any figure you control that is adjacent to Green Lantern, rolls defense dice against a normal attack from a non-adjacent opponent, add one automatic shield to whatever is rolled.

FLYING
When counting spaces for Green Lanternís movement, ignore elevations. Green Lantern may fly over water without stopping, pass over figures without becoming engaged, and fly over obstacles such as ruins. When Green Lantern starts to fly, if he is engaged he will not take any leaving engagement attacks.

EDIT: For survivability, maybe we should increase the Defense to 5 I think he should at least be usable in the event that the opponent has little to no Special attacks to tap into. But then again, if the opponent has no Specials to help him offensively, they will likely have to rely on normal attacks which will make his Force Field kick in on the ranged ones. Oh I'm so torn ---- I need Garada to make the call.
