German dice (or any regular HQ dice) for double defense...

Postby Kurgan » Friday December 17th, 2021 3:18pm

that German guy is selling the alternate Zargon dice again (same faces as the white dice, but red with gold markings or pink with black markings), in addition to the usual HQ dice variants. The German dice are plastic with painted faces, just like the NA BM, although the corners are rounded.

As mention in another thread, I asked him about custom BattleMasters dice (which would be the same as the Green "key dice" more or less, but he said there wasn't a high enough demand for them. Then again, you could easily use the red "Zargon dice" for BM, but it would double the length of battles by doubling the defense!

This of course is the same as using regular HeroQuest dice in Battlemasters... treating the Black Shield as "blank" (nothing) and the skulls as skulls and the hero shields as shields.

Normally in the game it's like defending with black dice, so units take hits and get killed fairly quickly.

Perhaps you could come up with some other homebrew rules to incorporate other colored dice? We already have the "Elite" rule which says any unit that survives from one battle to the next gets a token that gives it one extra attack/defend die (but only once... they could survive four battles and still only have 1 extra).
