You don't need to restrict yourself to those, and in fact the early ones are kinda' bad.

If you look at Online Heroscape events their maps are pretty good. The last few years of GenCon maps are usually pretty good also.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Playtesting (Fellowshi

Any playtesting forms we have or should work on or should I just run two games and report back?
Are there any synergy/suggestions anyone has?
Also could you post some links to those cool maps please?

Re: Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Playtesting (Fellowshi

There is a playtest form here, but you could simplify it if you like.

We built him with no synergies on purpose. You can splash 1x or 2x or more of them into any army. Ornak is an obvious choice, I suppose.

You can find the GenCon map pool history here. I would bias towards map used very very often and/or used in the last ~4 years.

You can also find plenty of good competitive maps listed in the OPs of these threads.

2019 C3V Playtest tourney
2020 C3V Playtest tourney

Re: Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Playtesting (Fellowshi

I set up the combat hex next to a stack of terrrain. Gimme a sec to get pictures up.
Looks like the troll's head is right on the border of 7 and 8. The top point of the mace is right between 9 and 10.
Also it's comparable to Krug or Gurei-Oni in size, so it's also a toss up between Large and Huge.

Re: Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Playtesting (Fellowshi

That looks awesome next to the tiles.

I like "large" for the troll - there aren't a ton of things that will naturally fall into the "large" category in HoME (lots of Medium with a fair amount of Small & Huge) so whenever something's close to large I think it makes sense to err that way. Trolls (& maybe Mirkwood spiders) seem like the best bets to fill the "large" category to me.

That's fair, I'd support Large 8.

Re: Workbook of Cave Troll of Moria - Playtesting (Fellowshi

Looks like we need a new owner for this thread. @Shiftrex @Chris Perkins @MasterScaper1 do one of you want to volunteer to take responsibility for updating the OP with any changes going forward?

I'll take the thread.
@Porkins - can you merge this post with the OP to give me control of the thread? Thanks

edit: Should be good now
