New Comic Day Battles: SECRET WARRIORS

August 31, 2011

0

Yep, I played this some weeks ago in a 100% Captain America set Golden Age tournament. Nick Fury (Captain America #023) 109 + Inside Information 4 + Alias 3 Quake 67 Stonewall 62 Phobos 59 Slingshot 50 Hellfire 45 + Kinetic Accelerator + Eleha’al Vine + Dynamostat =399 points My basic strategy: Use Fury’s SP […]

Token Totin’ Tuesday: AMAZO (Justice League & Cosmic Justice))

August 30, 2011

0

Continuing the photographic record of Super-Strength characters who can hold their own object tokens, today we’re looking at the twice-made robot with all the powers of the Justice League…Amazo! First, the JUSTICE LEAGUE Super Rare:   …then the original Unique from COSMIC JUSTICE: Both barely hold the token. Really, the tokens just lean against the flight […]

Card Art #3: Rally

August 29, 2011

0

Continuing my new feature (replacing “My Custom Mods”) in which I talk a bit on how I selected artwork for feats and battlefield conditions that didn’t come with art, originally, let’s look at: Again, I had to move the text up higher on the card considerably to make room for the art. Choosing the art […]

Yes, you read that right: fellow HeroClix-related website HCRealms.com is sponsoring this year’s Dragon*Con HeroClix gaming. Check out this link for a full list of events, build your teams, and come […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: CAPTAIN BRITAIN (Avengers)

August 25, 2011

0

Heroclixin’s photographic record of Super-Strength characters who can hold their own object tokens continues! Since we’re on a sort-of “captain” theme, here’s another you’ll almost never use: the Captain Britain from the Ultimates universe: It’s not as secure as it looks! You have to jam the token between his head and his LEFT arm. Be […]

New Comic Day Battles: Diana’s Wardrobe (battle 3)

August 24, 2011

2

A few months back, I played Diana’s Wardrobe: a team consisting of figures wearing some costume that Wonder Woman’s worn across the years. With the recent release of Wonder Woman (#D-001) at Origins and GenCon, there’s a new addition. I was blessed with one of these ultra-rare figures by a fellow player (and brother-in-Christ), so […]

Token Totin’ Tuesday: CAPTAIN AMERICA (Avengers)

August 23, 2011

0

Forgive me for failing to properly schedule yesterday’s Card Arts update. I hate when I do that. Continuing the photographic record of Super-Strength characters who can hold their own object tokens, today we’re looking at one of the first character-carded figures — and one of the worst sculpts ever — Captain America from 2007’s Avengers […]

F.U.N. Friday: MODOK’s 11

August 19, 2011

2

I recently got the new MODOK (Captain America #050), and so want to run a near-complete M.O.D.O.K.’s 11 team. MODOK (Captain America #050) 160 Super-Adaptoid (Captain America #020) 175 Scientist Supreme (Captain America #033) 97 Armadillo (Captain America #036) 89 Nightshade (Captain America #027) 72 Mentallo (Captain America #010) 71 Chameleon (Web of Spider-Man #019) 66 Rocket Racer (Web of Spider-Man #044) 60 + […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: ZANGIEF (Street Fighter)

August 18, 2011

0

Heroclixin’s photographic record of Super-Strength characters who can hold their own object tokens continues! Today we’re looking at Zangief, the Russian wrestler from Street Fighter! It’s not as secure as it looks! You have to jam the token between his hip and the red spin trail. (It’s not like you’re going to be holding it […]

New Comic Day Battles: wall-to-wall ALTER EGOs again?

August 17, 2011

0

After what’s probably the hugest FAIL factor game I’ll ever play, you’d think I wouldn’t so much as touch a team composed of all the Alter Ego figures in HeroClix: With no fliers, phasers or Leap/Climbers, this weak swarm team is pretty immobile. They’ve got hardly any range, or damage reduction, or speed. They take […]
