Heroscape Dungeons and Dragons : Battle for the Underdark

Board Games > Family

Please note: This product is now out of print and no longer available.

Legends of the D&D universe come to Heroscape! The hordes of evil must be stopped. The Valkyrie Generals representing the forces of good have summoned brave adventurers to embark on a quest to defeat the black dragons and their wicked allies. Who will prevail and who will perish?

Iconic characters and monsters from the worlds of Dungeons & Dragons join forces with the ultimate build and battle miniatures game to bring new dimensions of fun for everyone!

Battle a troll, a band of drow (dark elves), and ultimately face the evil black dragon. Fifty configurable terrain pieces ensures hours of replay as you design your own battles. Choose one of the five customizable game scenarios included or create a scenario of your own – it’s all up to you! Everything is fully compatible with other Heroscape figures.

This is a very good introduction to the world of Heroscape and a good expansion to the previous sets, which I should add, are not required. In fact it may well be that you keep the D&D figures in this set separate to previous Heroscape sets if you already own them, as they are slightly different in size, scale and styling. It will really depend how fussy you are about these things.

Certainly this is a smaller set than Rise of the Valkyrie and indeed Swarm of the Marro, but the price reflects this, so I would say you are still getting value for money.

For the uninitiated Heroscape is a hex based miniatures battle game. The rules are fairly simple (in fact there is a basic and advanced version), so much so I can play it with my 7 year old daughter. However there is still a good game in here for adults as well. Another advantage to Heroscape is all the miniatures are supplied painted, so straight away you have a great looking game.

There are four scenarios given in the book, but the beauty of Heroscape is that you can build your own layouts, which gives the game massive replay value. There is also an official map and four more scenarios on the site.

A great addition to the Heroscape world in which you can now play the original Heroscape setting, Marvel and now, Dungeons & Dragons. You can also mix these settings together if you feel happy to do so.

I recommend this set to both new players and existing players.
