I was thinking about working up a special for Kobolds for a different game, whereby as soon as a players sighted kobolds the GM got to lay extra traps...

Sorry, ods is Open Office, but Excel should be able to force it open. I don't like giving MS more money than I have to, and open office is free and does just as well.

 

New cards I played with, thoughts?

Natrually these are all just WIP at this point, and opinions are very welcome. Using the figure photos has been a challenge occasionally due to the close crop of some of the pictures, so many may need adjusted.

Thanks Chaotic! Hopefully I'll have some time to generate some new stuff today. The hero characters are my issue as they really don't stat well as monsters, but at the same time they'll provide a lot of NPC options.

Awesome work! With the upcoming Heroquest25th Kickstarter, hopefully that will encourage more folks to convert Reaper Bones to Heroquest. Bones are perfect for Heroquest!

 

Here is another site I found with a ton of Heroquest stats. Click on the links on the left-side of the page...

Holy carp! I went and Googled Agin's Inn, hoping to find some small part hiding in Archive.Org - somebody kept the whole thing! ::D::wub:

 

Really, if you like HeroQuest, I highly recommend paying them a visit - and spreading their link around. That site dates back to the early nineties!

 

New rules, the construction set for writing adventures (which never made it to the US), more tiles, please, pay them a visit!

 

They have done a lot to keep HeroQuest alive.

 

*EDIT* Good gods, they even have the forums up and running!

It's been a while since I've played Hero Quest but I don't remember cards or levels for monsters in the game. They look very well done but I'm not sure how they are to be used.

Heh, just want to let you know that this thread was indirectly responsible for some minor hearing loss....

 

Because of this thread I mentioned to my girlfriend that 'somebody' was using Bones figures for HeroQuest.

 

Which led to her telling me that she played HeroQuest with her mum and friends, and that it was the first fantasy game that she ever played.

 

Which led to us playing HeroQuest.

 

Which led to me telling her about the Anniversary Edition of HeroQuest, over the phone....

 

Which led to her going 'EEEEEE!' in my ear. ::P:

 

So it is your fault! ::D:

There was an Adventure Design kit for HeroQuest, over in Europe - but it never made it to the US.

 

Agin's Inn (mentioned elsewhere) has the PDF of the kit on their site.

The Monster levels, if you go back to the start of the thread, I think it's there - are to let you sub these guys in for the original monsters in the original quests. The high Body points are from the US edition, which was better and had much tougher monsters than the EU version.

I know I hadn't tinkered with this much lately, but I am sitting here right now building a foam dungeon for my heroquest board (my original got water damaged in an unfortnate accident). I should really sit down and do some more work at get some stuff further detailed. I will not be buying the 25th though. Maybe when it is released, but I have no money at this point in time.

 

My kids are about to the age where they could enjoy Heroquest, but wanted to provide them with a nice set. So I need to finish designing my monster cards and maybe start designing other stuff to match thematically. If anyone is still interested in this, please let me know, and perhaps I can assign you a task to get things moving further.

 

Also I highly recommend Pheonix's Heroquest site for great stuff.

      There are some minis that are absolutely brilliant in Bones. This is not one of them. But it's a mini that works for a fellow players for our Curse of Strahd campaign, so...
       
      First problem, the staff was really bent out of shape. Impressive since it's connected to both his hand and the cloak. A quick boil and then ice bath to care of that. 
       
      Then there were three mold lines. Unfortunately extensive on the outstretched arm and on the smooth cloak. 

      Once those were taken care of, I glued him to a base, splashed on the brown liner and then began to block in colors.

      Afterburn Grey, peacock green, tanned shadow, and dessert stone were the primary colors I used to start with.

       
      That was last week, and it was enough to get the okay from my player. So tonight, I worked on him some more. Added Rosy flesh, nut brown, some black lining, and Marigold for the hair.
      I think I'm going to wash the hair with something a little more orange red, then bring up the color more with the blond triad. Not sure what to do with the leather bandoleer, but I'm thinking maybe a red leather?

      Sorry for being away from the Forum for so long.
       
      So ... how does one pronounce "peryton"? 
      I've usually said it like "keratin" (stress on the first syllable), but I suppose it could rhyme with "enlighten" (stress on the second syllable) instead.
      I realized only weeks ago that I had been mispronouncing "wyvern" all my life, and the first syllable is long like "five", not short like "shiv".
       
      Anyway...
      I taught a class called "Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class at ReaperCon 2018.
      I used the Bones peryton as a demonstration, because of the big feathered wings.
      The first-edition Monster Manual gives the coloration of a peryton as blue-black head, black horns, green wings, and blue chest (male) or drab chest (female).
      I showed my students pictures of real hawks and falcons, most of which have dark tips on their wing feathers, and sometimes a series of dark stripes. 
      Then I painted one of the peryton's wings to have stripes like that (black on green).
       
      Now I've decided to paint the whole figure, to at least a good tabletop standard.
      I attached it to a 50mm round base, sculpted some extra rocks, and sculpted the skeleton of a past victim (a Reaper pewter skull, plus bones made from putty).
      Perytons bite the hearts out of their prey, so I made the skeleton's ribcage open/broken in front.
       
      Here's how my version looked after I spent 2 hours slapping on Black Brush-on Primer and White Brush-on Primer, to establish the overall values.
      The primer didn't fully cover the striped green wing from my ReaperCon class.
       

       
      Enjoy,
      Derek

      Hello, this is my first post on the reaper forums.
      I wanted to share my most recently painted miniature, the Ogre Guard sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
      The base is made out of a 74036: 2" Round Base, some apoxie sculpt for the rocks, green flocking and some army painter grass tufts.
       
      I picked this figure because while he is intimidating, he hasn't started attacking yet.
      This monster fits the look of both wild beast or gentle giant.

      I bought 4 faceless horrors painted OD green. After soaking them in SG for three days I still couldn’t get the paint off. So I decided to leave one green and repaint the other 3. One is done in purple/pink/white, one purple/brown/pale flesh, the other is purple/pinks/flesh. All the teeth are polished bone and linen white. Eyes are either clear red, fire orange, or sun yellow. Every one got clear coat to look slimy. Pic heavy.
