Arena of the Planeswalkers Gameplay Impressions

Well I finally managed to play a few battles in my Arena of the Planeswalkers game. I also asked other others to answer the following questions:

What did you like about the game?
What didn’t you like about the game?
Would you buy the expansions?
Are you going to make your own terrain?
How does it compare to HeroScape (where applicable)?
Have you tried using the HeroScape creatures with it?

Bonus Post – More Tiles!

As Requested by Phaedros at Planeswalker Arena, I did up a simple desert oasis. Then I made a bigger one. Then Some River Tiles… and it just kinda went downhill from there.

Custom Printable Tiles for Arena of the Planeswalkers (HeroScape)

I made another set, but I wasn’t 100% satisfied with how that batch turned out, so I cranked these out:

Feel free to use, modify and distribute – just give credit where credit is due. Would appreciate if someone posted them on HeroScape and shared the link with me. Would do it myself, but I hate signing up for things.

Arena of the Planeswalkers Miniature Paints – Red and Blue Complete.

Well, I finished my mini-paints for the Red and Blue summons for AotPW.

For Blue I White-Bombed, followed up with a wash of Too Blue for the Leyline Phantoms and True Blue for the Illusionary Projections. Over this I did a dry brush of dolphin gray followed by a light dryrbush of white, and then a final dry brush of Sky Blue. After this dried, I sealed it in Acrylic Gloss Finish.

Just a quick update

Spent most of the past few days out and about, so not much done. I did re-base most of the Figures that came with Arena of the Planeswalkers, and I’ve been working on getting those painted. I will point out to anyone else planning the same, the blue figures are made of a tranparent plastic that is tough to cut.

I’ve also been honing my Gimp Skills, taking free paper minis and creating entire sheets of the figures I need for my Zombie City game I’m running next week.

I’m still trying to decide if I’m going to use OkumArts Save the Day rule-set or my own I’ve been working on off and on for the past year.

I’ll post some pics later…. cuz right now I’m exhausted and need my sleep.

Oh! And I’ve got a very special treat for you all tomarrow!
