I like the idea of having a " stone gargoyle". Anyone got a spare of that figure they'd part with? And I'd be interested in HQ zombies as well.

Don't know if you've looked on the web but there's guys out there that make extra tiles so you don't need to keep using the same old board. Nice to add a bit of variety. Try typing greywolfs map tiles in google....

I've got boxes of the old Games Workshop Dungeon Floor tiles which should do the job plus Nightmare in Blackmarsh, a "dungeon planner" pack which includes a playsheet of a complete village. I reckon these would work with HQ.

Hmm I actually dug out HQ and played it some years back... I wish I hadn't  - it's not a very good game to a grown up I think! My child hood illusions were ruined.  :`

I don't think I'll be playing it without enhancing the rules somewhat, in fact I started doing a bit of work on it a few years ago which I must dig out. I added more character detail, more variety in combat (although still based on the simple-but-fun system of dice), character development through success and experience, more rounded-out monsters and more interesting scenarios with potential for more than just fighting everything that is encountered.

I hope that it will still be a good game for beginners but with a bit more depth. I may even get my wife to play it (maybe :D)

There are homegrown advanced rules out there on a couple of websites. I'm on a different computer so don't have favourites but I'll look tomorrow and post some links.

Incidentally I have unpainted HQ Dwarf & Barbarian figures on ebay UK at the moment. Happy to ship internationally.  ;)
