anyone started painting yet? im still practicing on the minis that came with my paint kits, but im getting ready to start on the doors and some of the furniture. figured id do those before i did the figures. or i might do a piece of furniture, then a figure, then furniture etc
I'm worried I'll mess everything up too, but I'd like to give it a shot. My problem is I have nowhere to work right now. I'm slowly working on organizing my collection in the basement, so the table I would use is covered with various other stuff at the moment. I'm hoping I might be able to start in on it over Christmas break.
The best thing about Heroquest is the Gaurdian Knight. A stalwart bulkhead in the fight against evil, the Knight takes the great risk of keeping monsters from storming through doorways and tanking damage with it's starting defense roll of 3 defense dice (4 including the starting equipment of a shield.) and 7 body points. Sadly it's attack starts at two dice.
My Brothers and I finally got time to play another couple quests after I got the knight in and like I said above, made them the tank of the game by Grabbing a helmet to increase their already high starting defense by the 2nd quest in.
Also it seems their are two new Quests on Pulse now!
First one has been out for a while now and is meant to bridge the first Quest book to Kellars Keep
Happy Holidays, gamers! Today we have for you a wonderful gift – a free quest map for your adventure-hungry heroes crafted by our very own Doug Hopkins, designer on the HeroQuest Game System. This quest map will allow you to expand the HeroQuest experience while adding a few wrinkles that all...
Second one actually is a new Starting Quest. Essentially it seems a lot of players are having trouble with the first one, "The Trial", so they made a Quest Zero that has a bit more of an easier progression as well as a more narrative role for the GM/Zargon or in this case Mentor.
Hail Hearty Adventurers, Today we come to you with another online quest to increase your enjoyment of the HeroQuest Game System! A few canny fans noticed that our previous release, The Tunnels of Xor-Xel, was labeled “Online Quest 1,” but while you may be expecting “Online Quest 2” we’ve in fact...
The cool thing is since I backed the mystic tier, I got the little expansion that came with it that includes the four new classes, and with me we actually had 9 people, so literally everyone was one of the classes.
It's really cool seeing how the new classes work. Very interesting that some of them can get their spells BACK before the Quest is over.
We went ahead and tried the 'New Begining' question Daith linked too.
The Wizard immediately used pass through rock to move into a random hallway away from everyone else and proceed to open doors like crazy. Very surprised he didn't end up dead, but believe it or not, the party caught up and managed to keep him alive. Though I allowed them to smack her for it. XD (Player was male, but it was the female wizard. Also cool we can do that now.)
Still wish I knew why the Chaos Warriors became Dread Warriors, and the Fimir's become Abominations.
That has to do with rights issues. Games Workshop has the rights to those creatures names so they made replacements. Though if you have a classic set they can be subbed out since I don’t believe the stats changed between them.
I don't think so. I'll probably just throw them in when needed since I do have the classic board. I don't have anything else of the original stuff, so I really hope these rumors of them doing the Barbarian and Elf quests next are true. I've wanted to play them for years, but holy hell I ain't paying eight hundred to a thousand something bucks for each one.
Exciting news ahead, gamers! The Frozen Horror expansion global launch date is August 1st, 2022, though it may be available in your region ahead of schedule. We’re so excited for this release that we’ve put together an introductory solo quest for any hero to attempt, along with additional...
But two new Heroes and the Frozen Horror expansion, not to mention all the extra quest books in the HasLab version.... I feel spoiled a bit. It's bit weird though that I haven't seen Kellars Keep available as much.
Got my Mage in the Mirror expansion yesterday. Still can't believe I'm sitting here with all FOUR expansions after waiting like 30 years for it. I've been playing Hero Quest since elementary school. I still remember my mom and I finding the mail order sheet for the Barbarian and Elf quests in I think the Keller's Keep expansion. Sadly turns out they stopped taking orders for it like a month prior to us finding the order sheet.
Wanted them ever since, but again. I didn't have thousands of dollars to spend on a freaking board game. >_<
But now I have them. I have them and thanks to the Mystic Tier giving me like I think two other quest booklets. I have enough quests for this thing to last a long time. It's such a cool feeling.
I also picked up that extra Rouge Hero. Next time we get to play I'm going to present that character as a possible one to play and see if anyone decides to switch to them. I'll probably let them just carry over gold and items to this new guy just to be fair.
Now I'm very curious as to what, if anything, they'll do next. It really seems like they'll be trying for more expansions or characters. I really do wonder if we'll start getting some of the UK only quest packs released for this new system.
Breaking News about a new upcoming HeroQuest Quest Pack. Here's what we know so far!
Oh dang! Apparently another expansion was already teased!
"Rise of the Dread Moon"
From what I'm reading, this is a brand new expansion NOT based on any old stuff.
Looking into it, I now know the two expansions left are: "Against the Orge Hoard" and "Wizards of Zargon"
Though I'm seeing hints at some other content in various releases, like some extra stuff in some 'advanced' copy of the game? Not sure if we'll get anything like that, but I am curious as to if we'll get these other two expansions at some future time.
Also didn't look too deep into it before, but yeah. The extra Rouge hero you can buy? They tie DIRECTLY into the Elf Quest "Mage in the Mirror"!
In the quest, a young elf princess is kidnapped and the Rouge is her older brother! That's really neat! I know Hero Quest doesn't really do conversations role play, but I can see if someone plays them how that could add some extra dialogue. Heck I could even make it so both Elf characters (The original and the Rouge) could take on the 'solo' missions together.
Welcome back to the blog, gamers! The design team has been hard at work on the latest adventure in the HeroQuest world, so we brought Doug back to tell everyone more about it. Take it away, Doug! Rise of the Dread Moon Rise of the Dread Moon is an upcoming HeroQuest expansion. We can’t pull...
