Heroquest Barbarian - An easy recipe - Feeds one

10 posts in this topic

Take one copy of Heroquest bought at a recent car boot sale for £1.00…

Be sure to remove the Barbarian miniature…

Take the box art from Advanced Heroquest and crop out the background, leaving a suitable image…

Add to Strange Eons and mix slowly with ideas and ponderings to taste…

I didn't want him to be just another bulldozer, so I changed him to be a little more thematic (in my opinion).

His first ability is similar, but his knowledge of those parts gives him the advantage. Mostly against becoming lost, as I would sooner fight something than miss a turn!

The second ability is a take on the old Halfling, but completely in line with a battle-hardened Barbarian with a massive sword! Imagine a sword blow with such force as it just slices and dices, a bit like a very sharp club!

The third is a kind of toughness benefit, to counter any drawback from probably taking lives more often than not in battle.

If you fancy trying him out, you can get the file here… CLICKY

I have played a lot of Heroquest games, when i was around 12 to 16 years old.

I have good memories of it. I was the dungeon master all the time haha

I wonder why we still have no Barbarian for Talisman, after so many expansions..

It was a base game character in talisman 3th edtion

Even in heroquest, it was one of the 4 characters:)

A bit of a necro-post, but I thought I'd share a redux of the Barbarian that uses the figure from Warhammer Quest as I happened to have one hanging around in a box!

Lovely character there :D

 

I'm in the process of creating a HeroQuest expansion for Talisman. I have made quite a few cards now and have made the initial sketchings of the dungeon board :)

 

Was great to see others interested in using the two games together.

 

By the Way @ Talisman Island - Are you the creator of the fantastic site Talisman Island? If so thank you very much your website has been of great use and entertainment to me over the past month! Also I will be emailing you the HeroQuest expansion just as soon as its ready.

No problem at all mate :)

 

One Question, why has Talisman Island not got its own forum? ;)

 

oh another quick question if I may. The list of card sleeves on your website...what one would you say is best fitting for 2nd edition?

 

Cheers mate my email address is jackyboy@hushmail.me if you would like to email me or if you are interested in seeing my project in progress.

 

Anyways thanks again for the great site and hopefully i'll speak to you soon.

 

Jack
