This is an alternative to the standard heroQuest Heroes. The game plays differently with these guys, with no new rules to learn. They can use Mind Points, furniture, and ranged weapons in combat, buy spells, and don't have to do all their fighting in doorways. One of them is even female.
In HeroQuest (and Advanced HeroQuest) you put the Barbarian and the Dwarf on either side of the door, the Elf in the middle, and the Wizard nearby. You do all your fighting in the doorway. The "A" Team are different. The Viking can't swing his axe up against the wall, he goes straight into the room to swing at multiple targets. The Swashbuckler gets a bonus for standing on furniture, so he is in like Flynn. The Psyker stands behind the Viking, launching close-range Mind attacks (characters block LOS, so it is tricky). The Sorceress can frighten the undead away or keep back, with a reusable healing and fire spells.
Since the "A" Team have fewer Body Points than the standard heroes they have to kill everything in the room quickly, and the plan will depend on the layout of the furniture. So a slightly different plan for each situation is needed.
The Viking breaks the tradition of fighting in doorways, although he doesn't like cramped spaces. The Sorceress double up on the best spells, so she can specialize in healing or attack. She is even squishier than the Wizard, but can buy mail armor. The rules promised that you will be able to buy spells in later expansions, now you can. In "The Destruction of the Tomes" expansion Ball of Flame is 600 gold coins. Feel free to make it cheaper.
The Swashbuckler uses the furniture and starts with a bow. Great for cramped rooms and creative retreat.
The squishy Psyker actually fights with Mind Points (Andy Sekela's Mystic), but is prone to the Warp's perils.
The characters have fewer body points, so the Viking will be protecting them with support from the Swashbuckler and Psyker's ranged attack (good against Chaos and Gargoyles). The Sorcerer can cast Heal Body and Fire Spells twice.
The position of each character in the room will be a vital part of your plan. I love it when a plan comes together...
In 972AD, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a Chaos Sorcerer for a crime they didn't commit. These heroes promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the HeroQuest underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... the A-Team!
