Heroscape post got front page on r/gaming!

I just posted a picture of a Heroscape map to Reddit with the title "any love for Heroscape?" That was last night, and it currently has over 1,400 upvotes (on the front page). Everyone is talking about how they used to love the game but no longer own any sets. I posted a link to HSers to try to show them that we still have a great community here. This goes to show that there is still hope!

Thread, if anyone's interested

Woot!

The ONLY reason I know it's reddit is due to the "r/" abbreviation.

I really enjoyed reading through there. I wish they would all come here so we could answer all their questions.

Thank you.

The empty sky holds no reflection, for sorrow

Re: Heroscape post got front page on r/gaming!

Someone needs to start posting links to Heroscapers at regular intervals; maybe draw some of that interest and traffic over.

Re: Heroscape post got front page on r/gaming!

Very nice map indeed, especially the way it seems to be floating in mid-air on that glass table top. Is it symmetrical enough for tournament conditions? I love building really high mountains like that, but it takes sooo long to move your units any where without roads and ladders. My vipers would definitely be down below slithering across the water. Did you have a special rule to prevent that?

lol to be honest I just found a picture of that map on google images. I couldn't find any pictures of my maps (all on my old phone, which is now broken :/) so I just uploaded this one

Re: Heroscape post got front page on r/gaming!

Sorry about your old phone and loosing your photos, but you sure found a good one to post. It reminded me of the floating rocky islands in the "Avatar" movie and has given me an idea to go find a glass topped coffee table at a second hand store to build a future map upon - one with a lot of elevation, and then incorporate into it CryptoKnight's "Sky Battlemat with Rules" from 2011 . . .

http://www.heroscapers.com/community....php?t=38818 b

It should provide an opportunity to bring out a lot of Kyrie and other flying units with the added visual effect of fighting in mid air.
