With that being said, we would need some form of compensation to account for the lack of paint job, such as an interesting 3 dimensional set piece to go along with the terrain. Something like the ruins from ROTV or the Marvel set. Seeing just how prominent the ruin use has been in almost all map building, their inclusion in ROTV has had a massive impact on the game for just a couple setpieces. Even the rocks in Battle for the Underdark were a very nice addition. The setpieces wouldn't need to have a fancy paint job either, just a wash like the ROTV ruins at most. Something along those lines would go a long way in making this a satisfactory masterset.
I really don't think it would be good to ship the unpainted figures with only flat terrain tiles

If we can get something that adds an interesting twist to map building, I'll be happy with the set
I spent a few minutes yesterday telling them my idea for terrain pieces that would help with setup time to make the game more accessible. They made some comments about different types of terrain molds (particularly larger single pieces along the lines of the castle) being really expensive at each level of production (down to the weight and space taken up in the box IIRC) but they *DID* say that they have lots of cool plans for terrain stuff.

If you're going back to the booth at any point can you ask if there will be an "official" color scheme for each figure, and if there will be is it going to be on the card portraits similar to the original run?

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

While I haven't finished watching all of the streams, the theme of this new master set is intriguing. That hammerhead shark character was said to be part of some monster-hunting guild, and most of the other units are wearing very similar attire (as if they are all part of the same steampunk pirate crew). And with the huge dragon for them to hunt, the set gives me a "Swarm of the Marro" impression.

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

Its been confirmed by one of the developers here that the colors will reflect the Characters' Generals, and not be a wash.

Monster hunting would be a cool new take on the game, different but cool I could see that cracking the market as a cool gimmick.

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

Going with the most hunter theory, I could see the huge new dragon having a "boss mode" type battle with it by itself versus an equal point army of hunters, like with the Eldrazi figure expansion in AOTP. Maybe a set of a few huge figures together like the old large unit expansions.

Maybe even an official Van Nessing figure. He can take on a huge dragon. I've seen him defeat A+ armies, lol.

But yeah, apocalyptic survivors taking on monsters. There does seem to be a lot of gas mask/goggle/protective like gear with some characters.

So I'm assuming the all green figure with the staff and antlers is in Ullar, to show as an example of being full color matching of the generals example. They'd look plenty great if they all have the same high detailing and visibility of the detail out of the box. That's probably a wash though?



That green (antler wearing elf?) Figure looks way better than these anyway.

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

I think the monster hunters will just be a squad who get a bonus when attacking huge creatures or something like that.

Re: Heroscape 2nd Edition is here!

I think it’s been said that the monster hunters are heroes.

Withhold no sacrifice,
grudge no toil,
seek no sordid gain,
fear no foe.
All will be well.
