Wandering Monster

Postby DarakuTenshi » Tuesday June 6th, 2017 9:06pm

You've been attacked by a wandering monster! I mean... hello.

I've been a member of this site now for a few years and have never really been part of the community, hence the subject line of this topic. I thought I'd drop in an introduce myself. I've been an avid HeroQuest player since 1990/91. A buddy of mine and I each bought our own set and got groups of friends together to play it regularly. As far as I can remember I've never really played the game myself as I was always playing the role of Zargon. As a youngster, I had the main set and Kellar's Keep. I would really love to be able to get the other sets but at this point, I think it may be out of reach, as I am not willing to pay that kind of money for the sets. I have found someoen who will make reproduction figures, but they charge way more than I'm willing to pay, sometimes even more than the originals on eBay on a lucky day.

I own Advanced Heroquest, but never got into that game like I did with the original. I didn't quite like it as much. I'm hoping the 25th anniversary game will be fun.

Welcome to the light.

Sadly it's uphill if you want to get a complete collection.
Prices have skyrocketed just the last couple of years.
Frozen Horror and Mage of the Mirror are completely unapproachable.
Even Ogre Horde and Wizards of Morcar has doubled in price recently.

I really hope MB/GW realize this and magically re-releases everything. A man can dream...

Welcome... I use Advanced Heroquest to spice up Heroquest. The empire units make for perfect mercenaries, the broke ones scouts, just lacking a crossbow (which is the best). The Dungeon tokens Make for perfect Evil wizard tokens. The modular tiles to mix the game up a bit. I modded these Quests https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzUqo ... FkyU1BJT0k into a linked story. Introducing the modular tiles to our group, a few new extra rules are introduced in the Quests too.

This has a qucik explination on how to use the Advanced HeroQuest tokens in standard HQ. Adds so much more to the game.

If you are a purist, like myself, than repro just won't do. If you are not a purist then there are plenty of alternative figs you could use from GW, Zealot, Reaper...etc. Would be a lot cheaper alternative.

Normally I am a purist, but at this point, beggars can't be choosers. I will probably end up paying for reproductions on some of the more expensive sets. The others that are achievable I may just piece out even if I don't have the boxes.

I'm actually interested in making a box out of wood for my HeroQuest stuff. I'm also in the works of trying to do a hardback book with the HeroQuest rules along with all the additional rules from the expansions just for my own personal obsession. I've also been throwing around an idea to put all the maps from the expansions in one book as well... with my work schedule and family life... this will never get done.

I managed to get the Elf Pack and Ogre Horde at decent prices. I got ones not quite complete then found the couple extra parts I needed.
