The evolution of the miniatures of the Barbarian and the Dwarf from their primitive stages in the launching video to the actual model has been notorious and particularly obvious, as they didn’t even had the pose we wanted for them (the one from the game cover, no more no less). The Wizard miniature, on the other hand, already had the right pose so in this case we have focused our work in greatly improving its detail level: the scepter carvings, the folds in the tunic and embroidery, the spell tome hanging from the belt… There is still a year ahead of us, but we can’t help but wait expectenly for you to have these miniatures at home and highlight all these details with your painting skills.
Changing tack, but still talking about the Wizard, or more specifically, his spells, we can list those we already have so far. The basic HeroQuest Classic box includes 30 spell cards divided into five schools: Ignis (Fire), Aqua (Water), Aer (Air), Terra (Earth) and Chaos. With the unlocked rewards there are 14 additional spells, two more for each of the four first schools and six new ones from Primordial Chaos.
The primordial spells use raw magic forces that the Wizards (yes, our wizard too) can channel straight away. They don’t become exhausted like normal spells and can be cast over and over again as long as the wizard remains conscious. But of course this powerful resource comes at a price, draining something as valuable as the user’s Mind points.
Each school has its own primordial spells and, although we only have the Chaos ones for now, Act III will balance the scale.
