Token Totin’ Thursday: Thor (Chaos War)

June 28, 2012

0

Welcome again to the photographic record of how all the sculpts of characters with the Super Strength power can hold object tokens. I’m pleased to present a brand-new piece, Chaos War’s THOR: He holds it under his arm (and hammer handle) and on the base. It’s not the best hold out there, but it’ll get […]

Battle Reports: Intellgencia

June 27, 2012

I was torn between a highlander-friendly all-Batman and Robin (and Alfred) team, a nearly full complement of Runaways, and a Red Hulk/Leader-led Intelligencia squad for a recent 400-point tourney. Because the last team had the most never-before-played pieces, I went with it: Red Hulk (Incredible Hulk 028) 187 The Leader (Incredible Hulk  014) 100 Humanoid […]

Is this the END of Token Totin’?!?

June 26, 2012

I don’t know if I can DO this anymore. I picked up the Dark Knight Rising Starter set of HeroClix this week, and was disappointed with some of the quality control. The figures were fine — no breakage, the cards were pristine. But the map…the MAP! It was very poorly folded, with corners not matching […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: Bane (Dark Knight Rises)

June 21, 2012

Welcome again to the photographic record of how all the sculpts of characters with the Super Strength power can hold object tokens. I’m pleased to present one of the very latest strong clix in the game: the diabolic scheming muscleman, Bane:   He holds it tucked just under his chin and propped up on his […]

Battle Report: ¡LOS LUCHADORS!

June 20, 2012

A I wrote last Friday, I’ve been all about theme teams in HeroClix since I started in 2005. From attempting to run teams composed entirely of bug-people — Ant-Man, Spider-Man, Wasp, to name a few — to a “Bright Yellow Boots” squad of Unleashed Shazam, E Black Adam and Vet Power Man, it’s clear that […]

Card Art #10 & #11

June 18, 2012

Back to regular rotation of talking about DC feats and BFC cards I went back and customized with artwork for fun. (Here’s a link back to the original concept.) Moving on to the Collateral Damage set and its two battlefield conditions. First up is Debris: This, one of my favorite BFCs (now more than ever […]

F.U.N. Fridays: ¡LOS LUCHADORS!

June 15, 2012

0

Long before keywords, I was all about theme teams in HeroClix. From attempting to run teams composed entirely of Black women back in 2006 to the Wall-to-Wall Alter Egos squads I tried last summer, it’s clear that “theme” has a broader meaning that just running a bunch of Martial Artist-keyworded fellows on a team. Case […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: Manhunter (Collateral Damage)

June 14, 2012

0

Welcome again to the photographic record of how all the sculpts of characters with the Super Strength power can hold object tokens. I’m pleased to present another oldie (but not so good, really) who, at first glance, doesn’t even seem to rate Super Strength, a lawyer to super-people, Kate Spencer aka Manhunter: She holds it […]
