I once ran a 4 board Hero Quest game with 12 people - all vying for a prize of a plaster sculpted, golden cup adorned Hero Quest trophy. Little did I realise how long it would take to finish - most people were still playing at 2.30am - but wow - what a cliff-hangar!
I ended up being given a game or two, or purchasing one from a thrift shop here and there. The models within started to grow and many of them have now made their way into armies.
Lets have a look into the glorious past shall we?
Mummies, Skeletons and Zombies
The Chaos Sorcerer
The Gargoyles, (being mostly terrible old bloodthirster models), were later repurposed
into cemetery gates once the undead army began to grow.
