I've never played either one of these, but I'd like to start. Both games seem to be the type where you adjust the numbers on the base when the guys take damage. Before I invest in either, let me know the merits and flaws of each. Which do you prefer? The Lord of the Rings: Combat Hex Tradeable Miniatures Game (2003) by Sabertooth Games. These minis have green hex bases, and move about on hex maps. HeroClix: The Lord of the Rings (2011) by WizKids. Round bases, square grid maps.
