    Default Heroscape

    Does anyone else play Heroscape? Some friends and I have been creating and converting characters and are getting together in March for a game. We've done a ton of DC a Few Marvel and even some Project Superpowers and custom ones.

    Any pics of your customs? You guys should try Heroclix. That game has hundreds upon hundreds of heroes and villains from Marvel/DC and Indy.

    The 'problem' with heroclix, which we do play, is that powers can change with each clix of the dial, making it hard to plan. With Heroscape powers are constant and you create the board yourself.

    Awesome! What do you guys use for the actual pieces? You could probably repaint some Heroclix characters with similar looks. I have found the sheer amount of powers is the major drawback of Heroclix when trying to teach new players. Like you said, powers change constantly, and many of them contradict each other. I mean the freakin' game creators are still changing/tweaking the rules 10 years later! I will have to pickup Marvel Heroscape next time I see it, I like that everything you need to know is right on the character card and the ability to create your own maps looks fun. Heroclix maps get boring quick and there really isn't that many of them.

    Heroscapers have quite a few cards that are a lot fancier Mostly Marvel & Dc with some "D&D'" stuff. my friends and I have well over 300 cards that we did that aren't fancy but we like them. Mostly DC but some Marvel and a smattering of other companies. We just did a bunch for the DC 'Antimatter universe' where the villians are the good guys and the heros are the villians.
    The adress for Heroscapers is:

    Default Shadow & Doc Savage

    I Thought a few people might enjoy these. And yes the shadow basicly combines the Radio and puld versions of the Shadow.

    I wasn't familiar with this, and had to look it up on Wikipedia. I do remember seeing it in toys stores now a couple of years ago. This looks like an American version of the UK Games Workshop (Warhammer, etc.) tabletop miniatures games, but those are pretty expensive. Too bad it never caught on and was discontinued - transferring the game from Milton Bradley to Wizards of the Coast was a bad idea, since it was probably perceived by WotC as competitive to their other products such as Hero Clix and D&D. Since they didn't create it, they didn't really care about it.

    Never mind the cards, I want to see pix of your miniatures for these characters.

    No you don't! I'm trying to adapt a Crimson Avenger Heroclix for the Shadow but I'm not to good an artist. Not sure who I'm going to use for Doc. They'll be good enough for me but . . .

    I was thinking about doing the same thing with Crimson Avenger! The only custom clix I've made were of Crimson Bolt and Boltie from the movie "Super". Awesome indie if you haven't seen it.

    Default Magic Users & Magic Weapons

    For the June Heroscape get together I've got some one interested in using either Spell Casters or characters with Magic Weapons. I'm not a big marvel guy and was wondering if any one had suggestions other than Dr. Strange? Thanks
