Thanks to everyone on this forum for their help and advice regarding my heroscape purchases. Now I have another question: my nephews also have fairly significant pile of Star Wars minis (they don't play the game, they just like the minis). I think they would go nuts if they could use their Star Wars minis for Heroscape. That being the case, are there any good sources for custom Heroscape stats for Star Wars minis?
Also, in case I want to design my own, is there a commonly accepted formula for unit stats/cost? (I designed a lot of custom Dreamblade miniatures, and the basic spawn cost forumula was Power + Defense/3 + Life/4 - 1.75 = Spawn Cost; is there anything like this for Heroscape?)
Finally, is there a place I could get a template for the "army cards" or "unit cards" for the miniatures, so if I did design a custom unit, I could print it out on a proper-looking card?
There are a number of Star Wars customs at heroscapers.com. There is also a community effort currently underway to establish a set of Star Wars rules so the customs are consistent.
There isn't really a formula for establishing point cost. The best way to do it is compare to something more or less comparable in the game and then try it. Adjust up or down after playing with it at that point value. Rinse, repeat.
Again at heroscapers.com there are card templates as well as a few tutorials on how to make them look as good as the official cards.
