cant wait to mix Heroquest and DF 1 Year, 6 Months ago  
hey everyone! total noob here. just found this from the kickstarter campaign on FB.
I didnt see a "welcome" thread, not sure if I should post here or not... but wanted to share my love of Heroquest
if this is not welcome here, feel free to delete or move this thread.

I cant wait to get my stuff from the kickstarter and use it in HQ.
just a few pics of my figs... still learning how to paint

Welcome! Those figures are gonna look awesome with the KS backdrop. And you're quite a great painter, especially for a beginner! Heck, I was nowhere near that good when I started - and I'm not gonna say I'm any better now, years later! ;)

Law is correct, those are nicely painted. When I was young and dumb I sold my Heroquest set in a yard sale. I did get more than I paid for it, but I regret doing it to this day. I am working on buying the bits piecemeal since full sets are usually outrageous.

I plan to use some of the plastic set pieces for dungeon dressing and some of the plastic figures are actually very nice minis. Fortunately you can get the set pieces and some figs pretty reasonably priced!

Thanks for sharing your pics, I like to see what people are up to for inspiration and edification.

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

I stumbled upon the recent KickStarter myself while looking for alternative HeroQuest terrain. I dug up my old HQ set a couple years ago, ran the main campaign with a few friends, and from there started building my own quests. We had some great sessions, but the rules don't feel like they hold up so well for experienced players using fully equipped characters.

How have you dealt with expansions and overpowered-ness?

we are not hardcore gamers.. we like the simplicity of HQ.
if it gets too easy, we add more monsters or add defend or attack die to the monsters
even made our own custom heroes and monsters..
we dont really worry bout it. kinda just go with it :)

How did you paint the sarcophagi? Looks like a black undercoat followed by a drybrush? How did you decide on turquoise? Great color choice I'd never think of!

yes exactly

for the turquoise one... I wanted it to look like it was glowing, like something evil about to come out of it :)
