Happy Holidays! A look back at ‘Clix 2010.

December 29, 2010


I’ve been away for the holidays and so haven’t made any recent updates. Sorry about that! But I hope you and yours had a wonderful Christmas. And while we’re all looking forward to a brand new year, it’s nice to look back at the one almost finished with. It was a good year for HeroClix, […]

My Custom Mods [mod 32]: Veteran STARMAN (Cosmic Justice)

December 20, 2010


Veteran STARMAN (Cosmic Justice) I’ve never liked the “standing on the flight disk” pose in HeroClix. Ones like this are even worse. So when WizKids did away with the flight stands, I decided to do away with his. Used hobby knife to cut him free from flight stand. Snapped off flight stand. Glued him to […]

Atlantis Addendum: DC75 Edition

December 17, 2010


No Friday Force-Building this week. We’ve all got brand-new clix to pull and try out! In that spirit, here’s a look at one of my favorite themes. Several weeks ago, I posted a simply titanic article about the Atlantis keyword in HeroClix. Long a thoroughly uncompetitive keyword theme, it’s gotten some boosts in the past […]

My Custom Mods [mod 31]: Sandman (Origin)

December 13, 2010


U SANDMAN (Origin) OK, I would MUCH rather have gotten this character in the grittier Sandman Mystery Theatre revamp as opposed to this “Darkwing Duck” look. And I toyed with the idea of doing a more substantial modification. But instead I decided to try a simple fix first: Painted “duck bill” in silver enamel. Completed […]

Friday Force Build: 400 points of Jewish clix

December 10, 2010


Once in a while I try to give a shout to my Hebrew brothers and sisters and play a team of characters who are Jewish. Here’s my list of those made in the game so far (Modern Age in green): The Atom (Jewish mom) Atom Smasher Colossal Boy Doc Samson Gertrude Yorkes & Old Lace […]

Token-Totin’ Thursday: Lionheart (Avengers)

December 9, 2010


With a new Narnia movie coming tomorrow, I’ve got Aslan the lion on my mind. Hence, Lionheart is today’s token-toter: She easily holds between her legs, as her hands are full. 🙂 So if you happen to use ol’ girl for any reason (and those reasons are few), now you know how she carries her […]

Token-Totin’ Tuesday: Bane (Hypertime, Alpha)

December 7, 2010


The man who broke the Bat can tote the token. And unlike the Clayface(s) highlighted a few weeks back, even the Modern Age dial from Batman Alpha has Super Strength. 🙂

My Custom Mods [mod 30]: Experienced DAREDEVIL (Sinister)

December 6, 2010


Experienced DAREDEVIL (Sinister) The 1990s were a stupid time in comics, full of stupid revamps and stupid new directions and stupid new powers and and stupid new costumes. Daredevil’s briefly-worn “armor” costume was among the stupidest of all. A character whose main thing is nimbleness and agility is gonna load up on armor plating? Yeah. […]
