Having a dragon in HQ?

Postby Ethica » Sunday May 16th, 2010 2:47pm

I want to make a quest where the heroes have to fight a dragon.

But I don't have a dragon piece to use. Can anyone suggest one I could use? I want a plastic one and it has to be significantly bigger than the heroes, but not so big it wouldn't fit into the rooms on the board.

I picked up a "dragon dice" set for £1 for a charity shop and it has some 12 sided dice with pictograms of claws, jaws, wings, belly of the dragon and I'm trying to come up with some nice rules based on these. I also found a complete D&D set in a charity shop for £2.50, so if I don't resell it, I have some larger room map pieces too.

So anyone use a dragon or know of a suitable one I could order or get off ebay?

My DM has the Hero Scape stuff - they have dragons you could use in the bigger rooms I think...

Our DM plans on using them once we are done with the quests available to us!

Dragon Strike has a decent dragon that's compatible. Fits on two squares similar to the Giant Wolves and Frozen Horror. If you find a set for a good price, pick it up. Most of the miniatures are compatible and the two double-sided boards are cool for designing Quests in towns and outdoor areas too.

I see a dragon strike on there right now. Hmm, I'm tempted. The dragon looks a bit crappy though.

The game is an HQ knock-off. Not of the same high-calibre quality, but they are about the same size. Might have to go with some D&D miniatures if it's not to your liking.

The only thing I dont like about D&D miniatures is that so many of them are made of heavy metals.
I found them to be really unwieldy when 'large' - like the FASA Excelsior, Romulan Nova, and Gorn BH-2...

I got a set of miniatures from the D&D board game set, they're plastic, and while slightly larger than HQ size, they still work as a set of more fearsome monsters.

I got dragon strike. Paid alot and only going to use a few bits from it.

The dragon is a bit rubbish, it looks more like a dinosaur than a dragon. I do have a bunch more new enemies for interesting encounters now though.

To each their own. I think the dragon looks pretty decent. Looks far more like a dragon than a dinosaur to me. It fits the HQ board and blends well enough even though it's of a lesser quality than the citadels miniatures that come with HQ.

Here's one from the starter set in Heroscape. It's a little bit bigger than most Heroquest monsters, but it is a dragon after all.
