Heroscape: Wave 9

Most of you can just move along quietly and ignore the funny man & his friends with the pre-painted minis. Perhaps you can use me as a cautionary tale for youngsters: "Look, kids... that's what you'll turn out like if you don't eat your Wheaties."

But for the rest of you, here's the scoop on Wave 9, courtesy of HouseMouse Games via

Here are the descriptions from each pack:
  • Braves and Brawlers: The Mohican River Tribe lie in wait, blend in with their surroundings, and pick off their approaching enemies with pinpoint accuracy. But face to face, they truly come alive, fighting with furious might. The Capuan Gladiators are ready to charge forward at their leader’s side to land the first blow of any battle. This pack includes 6 painted figures and 2 army cards.
  • Dwarves and Repulsors: Stout and fearless, no opponent can intimidate the Axegrinders of Burning Forge. Determined and calculating, they sweep over the battlefield and lay waste to all manner of beasts and villains. Only the Soulborg can defeat the Soulborg. Therein lies the power of the Omnicron Repulsors. With Repulsors on your side, you will shutdown your opponents’ Soulborg traitors. This pack includes 7 painted figures and 2 army cards.
  • Dividers and Defenders: The ranks of your Marro Dividers are seemingly endless. Your opponents try to cut them down, only to see them duplicate and come back stronger than ever! Ullar’s elite Protectors are masters of teamwork. They patrol the skies and strike fear in even the most powerful heroes with focused attacks from lethal crossbows. This pack includes 6 painted figures and 2 army cards.
  • Heroes of the Moon Tribe: Migol Ironwill swings his dwarven war hammer with earth-shattering might. Brave Arrow of the Mohicans stealthily tracks down his foes. Atlaga soars high and carries the deadly Bolt of the Witherwood. Kumiko, trained in the lethal art of ninjutsu, savages enemies with a barrage of flurrying blows. Marro overlord Tul-Bak-Ra uses his advanced alien powers to teleport himself - and his troops – across the battlefield. This pack includes 5 painted figures and 5 army cards.

There goes another $40 of my gaming money.

Haven't heard a definite release date - but I think it's late this month or early July.

I wrote a more recent post about Wave 9 - Brave Arrow Rocks! It's at

Atlaga and the Protectors of Ullar really excite me...

I am also looking forward to using the Ullar Kyrie and the gladiator squad. And finally some dwarves!!
