It's a good start.

(Aside: I'd been meaning to get a neoprene map with 8cm hexes so I could do a proper Catan set-up with Seafarers.  And one with 4.5 inch hexes for BattleTech properly scaled to the Mech minis.

That hasn't worked out.)

If I recall, I thought they had done a limited run of DnD figures, once, too.

Yes they did.  Marked the beginning of the end for Scape.  Hasbro realized the game had become more than just something they dropped in the toy aisle and forget about.  The fan run tournaments were becoming sizable events at gencon.  They figured it would be better off in the care of the recently bought Wizards of the Coast.  The powers to be at WotC went, "what the hell?  This isn't D&D or Magic!" and then promptly tanked the game.  Many of the game's final minis were just re-based figures from the recently dead D&D skirmish game.  It's really obvious which were too because they're in a clearly different scale than the rest of the Heroscape minis.
Space Marines are guys who look at a chainsaw and think, “That should be balanced for parrying.”

I thought so.  I was hoping to get those to fill in my collection, but I missed out.
Between myself and two other friends, we had almost the whole collection, sans the DnD figures.  One guy even had the Marvel Box. 

And, what's really neat is that the dice system was that used in the old HeroQuest game, but streamlined on the dice.
