[WBH] Superteam Creation


I do realise a lot of the time I talk about system stuff I assume I’m talking to the same fan-base who know the previous incarnation. Well I’ll try to remedy that with this…

Like the vast majority of Tabletop Wargames Whore’s Blade Heroics has a points system for building Superteams (this game’s version of Warbands.) In theory this should make it an evenly balanced game but even with extensive playtesting one can never be 100% sure. In the end this is a game about spandex clad japes with sexy Superladies so frankly advanced statistical maths can go fuck itself.

Anyhow Superteams consist of the following elements…

1 Leader: A Superlady with a great deal of in built power: The Cover girl and lead protagonist of the Superteam’s Comic.

0-2 Sidekicks: Superladies who are either inexperienced or just outright weaker than the Leader. They may not be as powerful as their boss but hey more shiny superpowers!

0-2 Allies: Allies are non-costumed normal humans who can use their connections in society to provide their Superteams with tactical advantages.

As Many Goons as you Want:
Goons are typical foot soldiers whether Coppers, Thugs or something really strange. They are individually no match for a Superlady but in numbers they can deal a lot of damage.

I shall address each of these elements and the 3 Morality Factions that can be applied to Superteams to boost their Courage and grant them unique advantages in separate blog articles.

There’s a lot in there!


[WB20k] General Update

WB20K logo l

As much as I am determined to get on with Scandal Sheets Volume 1, Whore’s Blade 20,000 keeps drawing me back.

On paper it is a simple, elegant game with plenty of room for customisation and tactical ingenuity. How it plays in reality I should know soon as I will have a complete Playtest PDF by about this time next week with any luck.

We may well be looking at a before schedule release which will mean pictures of the Official Table Warfare Miniatures will be of the sculpts and the “Action” pictures will be of Hasslefree and Shadowforge Miniatures now that I have their kind permission.

Stay tuned for more art, pictures of painted minis and daily previews of the Core Rules contents.
