Agreed. Good starting point, but in many cases outer terrain and the shape of the castle can sway the favor towards one side or the other, so generally you're always going to have to alter the points from that somewhat.

Thumbs up Possible Down Time

Is there any way for the site to use its facebook page when facing any down time?

heroscapers.com facebook page

Food for thought...

Smart, Mr Pi. Or maybe a group could be created for easier contact between users.

On a related note, I'd like to be seeing more from the Twitter feed.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

So I just ordered a bunch of Impact miniature bases for my C3V figures but I am having trouble debaseing the DnD minis from their original base. Is there an easy way to do this? The clix minis I usually put the freezer and they come off real easy.

I think the D&D minis have the base as part of the mold. All I can say is use a sharp knife and be slow and careful.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

The bases are part of the mold.

If you boil (doesn't have to be boiling) some water you can dip the base in there to soften it up and make cutting it off much easier. With some of the larger figures (thicker base attachment to cut through) that's the only way you're going to get the base off without cutting crooked or worse.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

Capsocrates is right - D&D minis are not glued to their bases like Heroclix are, so you just have to cut them off.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

In general, does a figure have clear sight on itself?

I remember reading that they do not, but the designers created some confusion by adding that figures aren't affected by their own auras. That was just intended as clarification, and the power would function the same without that clause.

Yes and No???? If a clear sight power is intended to also affect the unit with the power, the card will say so. Sonlen's Dragon Heal is a good example of this.

A must read for all 'Scapers!

I think the Twitter is supposed to keep us up to date on the down time and is only going to be used for info related to down time. I like the idea of a group for communication for members during down time.

Good call El_T-Steff.
