Question How Much Do I Want?

Hey everybody, I'm thinking of buying some of this, in part to actually see what it is, but mostly for HeroScape conversion (of course). How much what sets should I get? It looks like a lot of the figures would make common squads in conversion, or maybe a bunch of unique squads wouldn't be a bad thing?


Thanks!

I think "this" just means AotP in general.

That is correct. Generally it looks like there is just one squad's worth of figures for each squad in each set.

Re: How Much Do I Want?

I think one of each is just fine - unless you plan to convert Unique Squads into Commons.

If you have a little extra budget - I think 2 of Innistrad would be a recommendation for the terrain (the Cryptoliths are just cool).

Re: How Much Do I Want?

Thanks! I'll probably read up a little more to actually see how everything works and if I want more than one of any set. The Cryptoliths do look pretty sweet.

Re: How Much Do I Want?

Hmm... It looks like there are commons in this game, but looking through the books I don't see any... Am I simply missing them, or have none been released?

Re: How Much Do I Want?

There are no official commons, they were going to make them and chickened out. unless you want lot's of terrain, runes, extra minis, and/or are planning to house rule in commons, you only need one of each really.

Re: How Much Do I Want?

Sounds good. I'll probably just get one of each for now... Then I'll want more than 3 Cryptoliths and get more.

Re: How Much Do I Want?

I bought two of everything and my friend has one of each.

That is enough to pre-build an army for every Planeswalker and a couple extra Ruiner builds as each color has three PW's.

Re: How Much Do I Want?

With all 3 sets, this becomes a very complete, very tight game. The cardboard boards actually make set up super quick and it is easy to throw some tiles on them to make the maps more interesting. With 12 Planes walkers and 5 units per color you have a good diversity.

There is something to be said for limited options.

Re: How Much Do I Want?

We started with standard 600 point armies but figured after awhile we may play around with different point totals to allow for new builds and maybe play around with the point and count limit on spell cards.

We will roll a d12 to randomly assign an army and in time rebuild any that feel too strong or too weak.
