I came upon an idea for a Tabletop Battlefield Show while I was checking out Heroscapers.com. I found hundreds of custom Heroscape cards for different hero figures from all universes such as Star Wars, DC, etc. I decide to pull and playtest cards from Halo, Star Wars, DC comics and Lord of the Rings. The best custom cards will be reviewed on the show later this summer.

(END GAME SUMMARY) The things I liked about these stat cards were Master Chief's and the Arbiter's unique shield ability to have an automatic shield before you even roll their defense dice. It reflects a little of how they play in the Halo video games which I like. One my first playtesting of these stat cards it seemed that the Halo characters were very strong but after playing a few games with them I find that Batman and the other DC characters are strong in dodging and avoiding attacks and still have very strong hit ability. Thats it for this playtest review if you want more info on these cards please go to: http://www.heroscapers.com/community/showthread.php?t=27441
