One of the recent HeroScape expansion sets may be of interest not just to HeroScape fans.

Road to the Forgotten Forest

The Road to the Forgotten Forest expansion set is primarily a terrain set, containing:

  • 5 trees
  • 2 stone walls
  • 17 road pieces (8 single-hex, 8 double-hex, and 1 five-hex-straight)
  • Dumutef Guard pre-painted figure (with army card)
  • game booklet
Road pieces

The road pieces are grey plastic (with a brown wash over the cobblestone pattern), and interlock in the usual HeroScape system. The stone walls connect on only one side, and can be used to form a wall along the edge of a higher level, or (with the 5-hex straight piece) can form a walled bridge.

Four one-hex trees

The five plastic pine trees are have non-interlocking hex bases (or, in the case of the big tree, a multi-partial-hex base) that are designed to fit onto the terrain system. They range in size from 3½ to 5¼ inches.

Big multi-hex tree

The trees are solid and look like they would survive a lot of gaming use.

Dumutef Guard

The Dumutef Guard is a three-fingered, multi-tusked humanoid monster, sculpted in somewhat of a toy-like fashion (lots of round holes poked into his muscles), primarily painted with a splotchy brown wash. He's a little over 2" tall, and a bit over 3" wide.

The rulebook provides rules for the terrain in the HeroScape game system, and provides a map and two scenarios (for 2 and 3 players, respectively) for fighting over a bridge. The only fiddly point that I spotted was that the individual tree models are considered to have different heights for game purposes - but the heights aren't marked on the models, and the trees aren't that easy to tell apart once in play.
