Advanced Hero Quest: Prince of Persia Edition

I'm working on a new project, to combine two of my favourite things from October 1989....

ADVANCED HERO QUEST by Games Workshop...

Image

...and PRINCE OF PERSIA by Jordan Mechner / Brøderbund Software, Inc.

Image

I call it...

ADVANCED HERO QUEST: PRINCE OF PERSIA
(incredibly original title, I know)

Image


(this image is a mashup of the box art for the Sega Mega Drive version of POP from 1993 and an advertisement poster for AHQ in White Dwarf, October 1989)



The idea is to create a homebrew version of AHQ entirely themed on the MS-DOS version of POP. The GM will take the role of Jaffar, the evil vizier, while the player(s) will take on the role of the Prince(s) [I may include additional princes for more than one player].

Enemies, true to the original game, will be palace guards and the final boss himself will be the sorcerer Jaffar.


Miniatures will be:

The Prince


Image

(Young Thief from Ral Partha)


Palace Guard + The Princess

Image

(Slaver and Princess from Ral Partha)


Jaffar

Image

(Eastern Wizard from Ral Partha)


For dungeon tiles I will be using Zhu Industries' Planström sets:

http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/215 ... stem-Set-2

These will be printed on card and mounted on 3mm acrylic sheets from Warbases


So far all I have done is purchase Zhu's dungeon tiles from DriveThru RPG. The next few steps will be printing them out, purchasing the acrylic sheets from Warbases, and purchasing the miniatures.

Updates will be forthcoming (though not frequent, due to budgetary limitations).

I thought I'd do a bit of background prep work by creating custom Monster Profiles for the bad guys.

First up, it's the evil sorcerer Jaffar! He is based on the existing profile for the Chaos Sorcerer from AHQ.

And here are Jaffar's Guards. These mooks will be based on the existing Chaos Thug profile from AHQ...

I'm currently working on a secret plan to do something particularly awesome with the Planström dungeon tiles. I'm waiting to find out how much that costs before making the decision to either go ahead with it, or buy the miniatures instead.
