#225: Carnegie (title padding)


There was a time you could just stroll in a big box store in the United States and just buy a miniatures skirmish game that was actually pretty good. Sure, it didn’t have analog movement or anything, but it used true line of sight and had amazing plastic terrain. So much plastic. Like, a whole lot. One the one hand, Hasbro says they’re bringing HeroScape back, but on the other, ain’t no way it’s coming back the same as it was. They’re going to bleed us dry for those little pre-painted dolls–even assuming they’re still pre-painted, that is.
