It seems like these two games are similar. How does this game compare to WoW The Board Game?

In what way do you feel that they are similar? I am very familiar with both games and they are really quite different:

Heroscape: Tactical miniatures on customizable 3-D (read: awesome) terrain, with heroes and squads of many genres (robots, ninjas, orcs, zombies, etc)

WOW-TBG: Team-based adventure game of leveling up and fighting monsters through quests and using rewards to fight bigger monsters culminating in mega-boss-fight.

Heroscape takes 3.6 million years to set up, which WoW: TBG take 3.6 million years to play. I really enjoy both. Lots of time on my hands, I guess.

Heroscape is comparable to tabletop minis games (like MageKnight or even things like Tannhauser)

WoW: TBG is comparable to RPG-Adventure games (Runebound, Talisman, Prophecy, Return of the Heroes)

Not similar except in the most abstract senses (they are both games, for example). Apples and anvils..
