Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

I've got minimal time for playtesting these days, so don't expect I'll have any opportunity for awhile to move anything forward here.

Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

Same; new school, jam-packed schedule, just not time...

Ran Gandalf a couple months ago but didn't get a chance to write up the test. Busy summer, it was.

There's a CCC/RPG club here, though... I'm working on adding "Miniature Gaming" to that list (X-Wing and HeroScape). I know there are plenty of LOTR fans up there, so if I can get people hooked on 'Scape we may just have a base of playtesters for HoME. Doubtful, though. I'm running an X-Wing game tonight to introduce people, and hope to introduce 'Scape when I move my collection up.

"elvenwizard9." Now that's a username I've not heard in a long time.

Nothing is moving here, guys. Do we want to go back to our previous version of Gandalf and pass him at 155 or something? Is anyone going to step forward and do more playtesting? That is not an accusation: I am aware that I have not done any playtesting in a long time as well.
1) I still prefer my beefed up version of Gandalf, but I'm OK to pass our previous version of Gandalf at 155. With so many playtests already, I doubt we're going to get people excited about doing even more. Lets just pass him at 155 and move on.

2) To keep this thread project, I suggest moving on to Boromir, Legolas, or Gimli in the Design thread.

I propose we move the following version of Gandalf forward:
Quote:
NAME = GANDALF
GENERAL = JANDAR
SPECIES = MAIA
PLANET = ARDA
UNIQUENESS = UNIQUE HERO
CLASS = WIZARD
PERSONALITY = WISE
SIZE/HEIGHT = MEDIUM 5

STATS, MASTER/BASIC
LIFE = 7
MOVE = 5
RANGE = 4
ATTACK = 4
DEFENSE = 3
POINTS = 155

BLAZING STRIKE SPECIAL ATTACK
Range 1. Attack 3.
All opponents' figures adjacent to Gandalf are affected by Blazing Strike Special Attack. Roll attack dice once for all affected figures. Each figure rolls defense dice separately. At the end of your turn, after using Blazing Strike Special Attack, you may move Gandalf up to 4 spaces. Gandalf does not take leaving engagement attacks when moving this way.

LEADERSHIP
After taking a turn with Gandalf, you may move up to 3 small or medium Unique Heroes you control up to 4 spaces each. Any figures moved by Leadership must end their movement adjacent to Gandalf. Figures moved by Leadership do not take leaving engagement attacks.

Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

Wow those stats sound awesome and I would give my *THUMB UP* approval if I were able. I'm just anxiously awaiting the release of entire LOTR and HOBBIT sets with HS cards. I realize that the "Designing and Play-Testing Process" is tedious because You guys want to get it right, but I hate to read debates about minutia that is causing more delays.

Have you considered taking a page from the Wiz Kids' marketing methodology to release multiple cards for the same figure? For example: they have Rookie, Experienced, and Veteran versions of almost all of their figures because it's obviously a lot cheaper to print a card than mold plastic models.

So although it's rarely been done in HeroScape (i.e. only Raelin and Sgt. Drake, so far), why not release two or three cards for our favorite characters? There could be a 155, 180, and 205 point version of Gandalf (or any other hero) for the same sculpted model. This way the player can choose which version they want to use for a particular scenario, game format, or Army Build total.

Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

Unfortunately, most of the minutia are about getting the points right. We want the figures to be useful, but not in the A+ range where they outclass most other units.

We had a lot of playtesters, and a lot of playtests, but our inability to agree on final stats/points probably turned most people away from playtesting. To regain trust and enthusiam, we probably need to show that we can pass a unit with a LOT less than 50 playtests.

Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

You are probably right, JS. I forgot about the voting thread. We'll finish up these votes here.

We are still waiting on @faure , @elvenwizard9 , and @infectedsloth to weigh in on this and the other votes.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: HoME General Discussion Thread

Sorry, haven't been on in quite some time.
I'll give it a Yes vote.

Given my lengthy absence, and that I'm not likely to be reasonably active for the immediate future, it probably makes sense for me to pass on my voting position to someone more active.
