Thursday Nights

These are my reports of the games we play and our views of the weaknesses and strengths of the games. I will be blunt, truthful and not always kind (except about my D&D Campaign!)

25th - OMG it's Hero time

October 2012Posted by Sir Keith Sun, October 28, 2012 14:48:56


All seven in attendance tonight and so Sir Animal bought out Heroscape. He has a lot of sets, including the Marvel and several of the original (older sets) with Lava and Ice and river tiles. We opted for 300 points each which meant the truly powerful Marvel character (Hulk, Silver Surfer etc) could not be chosen.

However Sir Steve had Blade (Agen Carr looks like him), Werewolves and Chomp - a dinosaur riding Orc. Sir Nick had lizardmen and Iron Man! The squire had Marro Warriers - water based troop and Dr Doom. Gareth had Krav Agents and the Red skull. Malcolm had Airborne elite, samurai and a lava loving lizard rider. I had Roman archers, a swog rider (orc on a lizard wolf) and a black dragon. All in all - a hell of a mixture.

In the initial rounds, Sir Nick sent his lizards against the werewolves and Agent Carr. the squire and gareth lined up against each other and Malcom and I started to fight. The aribourne elite came down on the first turn and threw grenades against my Romans, wiping them, out! I responded with my Dragon breathing acid and wiping them out! My swog rider ran around, trying to find a target nearby.

Sir Steve had lost agent carr and some of his werewolves but Sir Nick's troops were defeated. Squire and Gareth destroyed each others main threats with the Red Skull and Dr Doom defeating each other. Chomp from Steve went against Malcolms large lizardf, whilst I killed samurai with my Swog rider!

Eventually all that was left were Sir Malcolm's lizard rider, my balck dragon, the squire's marro and Gareth's agents.... I breathed acid to despatch Malcom and Gareth managed to shoot one Phil's warriors. I then breathed more acid to despatch the remaining Marro but had to take shots from Gareth!

With one point of health left, I pushed my dragon forward and breathed..... The acid destroyed the final agent and I was victorious! However with one fighure left it was an epic batttle that the bards will sing of for ages to come.
