Heroica: Walled town
A small walled town for Heroica. Goblins have over-run the place and It's down to our heroes to save the townsfolk from this terrible menace. I've set up the map with my typically liberal distribution of gold and potions as with younger players, it's fun for there to be plenty to collect.
About this creation
THE GATE
This corridor constitutes the 'front door' I suppose and can easily be connected to other Heroica base parts.


THE SMITHIES
Going round to the left is a street with some forge-like buildings.


THE TOWER
I wonder if I can work some rules that let heroes fire arrows from the top down on to monsters below?


HOUSES
Heroica seems to work well with 'mixed scale' layouts so for buildings, I went nano to increase the perceived scale and minimise the brickage.


THE PARK
I centred the town around a park to add some colour. The brown jumpers act as squares accessible from either connecting road piece.


THE INN
I had to compromise on some of the colours as my brick supply in the Heroica palette is limited.


THE FOUNTAIN
In the rules I play with, the 'Chalice of life' can be refilled if the carrier ends their turn next to a water source so I wanted some water in there.


BACK ALLEYS
It's a tight fit so one has to be delicate but a great place for hiding and protecting valuable potions that heroes must divert to collect.


THE FARM
I tried to develop the rather simple initial layout by adding small side streets, this turned into the grain store and then an entire farm.


FARMHOUSE
There wasn't a farmer originally but I thought he could give advise or have a secret item depending on the type of game you play. He could always just let you stay a turn and recover some health... for a fee of course.


THE BARN
At the end of the tilled field is the barn, into which I have placed a strength potion. In our games, this potion lets you roll two dice and choose the best outcome (we thought the original potion took the fun out of battles)


THE FIELDS
Entirely decorative but that path behind the farmhouse leads to an interesting green potion. In our rules, this is a 'goblin potion' and lets you take control of a goblin (I'll be more specific when I get round to posting our rules). Either side of the field, the greenery can be removed and more Heroica connected.


THE SQUARE
A feature with a little elevation, this area leads to the bridge exit over the river.


THE BRIDGE
The way out can easily be connected to other Heroica base plates (a little elevation required).


PLAN VIEW
Heres how it all fits together. I hope you like it and thank you for paying attention this far (I probably would have hit 'back' by now) ; )

I've seen a few custom builds now, and you did an awesome job with the nano scale. I think it serves Heroica's character the best and is also a good example of how less is more.

Quoting Mysterious Hooded Man (MHM) this is great! im no expert but this is a modular board! this has a high chance of winning!
Thanks! It's quite modular, most of the sections such as the park, farm and buildings could be used as part of completely different maps.

I like the buildings. I've been interested in how well cities could be done. I'm not sure if it is just the perspective, but the nano scale works well. I especially like the town center pillar. Well done!

Amazing! You certainly packed a lot of detail into this little thing, and I love all the extra rules (I had never thought of that for the strength potion).
