June 28, 2011

0

Heroclixin’s photographic record of Super-Strength characters who can hold their own object tokens continues! Today we’re looking at the brilliant Dr. Henry Pym, GIANT-MAN:   No problem at all to squeeze it under his right armpit. Be back Thursday for another edition of Token Totin’!

My Custom Mods [mod BONUS 2]: VENUS

June 27, 2011

0

Also overlooked in the My Custom Mods series was this one. VENUS (Hammer of Thor #052) Aside from the dots-for-eyes phenomenon that’s plaguing HeroClix paint jobs in recent sets, there doesn’t seem to be anything to mod here… …or is there? Hey! They painted over her sleavage! This painting error is unfortunate. So I: Painted […]

Heroclixin’s photographic record of Super-Strength characters who can hold their own object tokens continues! Today we’re looking at Aquaman from Icons: It wedges between his leg and the water splash. (And, you’ll note, this is the same repaint featured earlier this week).

Dr. Manhattan (#005) 276 Ozymandias 83 The Comedian (#006) 83 Rorschach 57 Nite Owl  (#003) 53 Silk Spectre (#002) 46  = 596 points.  Ever since I scored the $100 collector’s set for a simple trade of a chase figure, I’ve been hoping for a 600-point build to run the whole team in. Finally got the […]

Heroclixin’s photographic record of Super-Strength characters who can hold their own object tokens continues! Today we’re looking at the those superheroic brothers, Hawk & Dove: Sure, you’ll almost never play this poorly designed duo (Don, the “Dove” half of the pair, never did reach his true potential, so it’s actually character-accurate), but it’s nice to […]

My Custom Mods [mod BONUS 1]: AQUAMAN (Icons)

June 20, 2011

Rookie Aquaman (Icons #025) This was a nice sculpt, but it’s specifically of the then-veteran Aquaman with the watery left hand, not the green-gloved classic rookie. I decided to fix that. Somehow I missed talking about this one earlier in the series, even though it was done well before my ambitious Experienced Aquaman modification. Probably […]

Heroclixin’s photographic record of Super-Strength characters who can hold their own object tokens continues! Today we’re looking at the master of Apokolips, Darkseid: See how it wedges (barely) between his chin and the clear plastic oval of his flight stand thingy. Be back next Tuesday for another edition of Token Totin’!
