The rules seem interesting enough at first glance. My gripe with them is that they are unplayable. There is an example in the shooting rules about numbers of models necessary to cause immediate panic in enemies fired upon. This rule is mentioned in the example but is not actually in the shooting rules. Maybe I am reading it wrong.
I really wanted to like these rules but I feel they are incomplete as written.
Great to get access to an old map. But I disagree with the former reviewers: the resolution of the scan could be much higher. It´s, quite o.k. for jumping from quarter to quarter, but insufficient for closing in and hunting your players character through alleys and streets. Lines, corners and letters are getting blurry than...
Just compare with the maps of London in 'The Imperial Age: London' from Adamant Entertainment, page 7+
Another great addition to the FiveCore family. Level of detail and size of forces is exactly what I was looking for. Provides a quick game with very smooth play. Has me digging out miniatures from some of my old WWII board games and basing them for this game. REALLY hope to see more for this level of FiveCore!!!
This is a really beautiful set - the small previews really don't do it justice. Like others I would love to see some multiple story buildings in the future, but maps like this one really help to establish the setting better than generic environments. Hopefully Heroic Maps will consider more detailed sets like this one, or perhaps release maps with optional layers with furniture and other clutter.
One of the most useful sets I've tried out so far, especially when combined with the excellent Village Stores set to add interesting details. Combines well with other outdoor sets to create larger environments. I recreated the town of Greenest (from the first DnD 5e campaign) and was able to take advantage of the variety of building sizes for the various missions. Everyone at the table loved the maps!
I used this set along with the a few of the smaller caves to create chapter 3 from the Hoard of the Dragon Queen (DnD 5e) along with individual encounters for other scenarios. This set strikes a great balance between visually appealing details and versatility for use in different settings, while the specific designs of the caves encourage creative dungeon layouts. Another great product from Heroic Maps.

This is another great map from Dramascape. It can serve across multiple game genres which is a major bonus for those that hop from genre to genre. Additionally it seems like this one could probably be used in conjunction with several of their other maps.

This is a useful map for games in a variety of genres. I have used it for some supers encounters but can imagine a place for this with Shadowrun or even Victoriana. This is definitely a map that can see use over multiple games and game systems.

This is a nice map thats going to get a lot of use in a superheroes game I'm running. I like that its pretty dang big so it can accommodate multiple encounters and scenarios without getting overly repetitive.
This supplement added a lot of good and useful new rules to the system. I really like the rules for standard bearer, again it lets me dust off more warhammer figures and shield wall. This was a good supplement and well worth the price, it made our campaign better and the fantastic terrain rules are actually fun.
This book does as promised adds new rules. There not bad but compared to Deeds and Glory they just don't add enough to really enhance the core rules. The dungeon scenarios are cool, I just don't feel that they fit the wargame genre.
The new rules introduced in this for the campaigns are really cool. I like how personalities and goons have separate tables for post battle aftermath. I really like the exploration phase, that is something that I feel really adds to the story of the campaign.
The raid scenarios are great, again not just kill all the other guys to win.
