Top Ten Duos in HeroClix: Part 1 of 4

July 31, 2012


#10 is the hardcore jailhouse duo of: Larry and Mike (Watchmen 020) The y make the Most Wanted Top Ten Duo list because they… Are the cheapest duo fig in the game at 33 points. Of course, that means their stats are largely lacking. But they have a few things that help them, such as… […]

Top Ten Duos in HeroClix: an introduction

July 30, 2012


Duo figures have been a curiosity and a controversy since their introduction in 2007’s Avengers set. It’s not hard to see why. It’s true that some characters are so close as to be inseparable and the duo status fits perfectly. But critics say that’s not the case for any but a select few characters. They […]

F.U.N. Friday: The Dark Knight (and power creep) Rises [part 2 of 3]

July 27, 2012


Last week, Heroclixin’ began analyzing how¬†street-level set like Dark Knight Rises¬†is at least a little overpowered. Sometimes grossly so. After seeing the film, some of my opinions are altered. For example, the Mercenary whose super-Support I criticized a week ago seems to actually sort of deserve it, a little. Well, actually, no. There’s still no […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: Chaos War completed

July 26, 2012


The last two characters to go into Heroclixin’s photographic record of Super-Strong figs that can hold objects are a pair that don’t actually have Super Strength. Instead, both have the ability to temporarily use the power under certain circumstances. First is Hank Pym (Chaos War 014), who can pick any standard Attack power when on […]

Battle Reports: Chaos War firsts

July 25, 2012


I played this team in the sealed Chaos War marquee: Ares 199 Donald Blake 33 Tigra 57 =289 points. Went 1-1, losing to a Genis-Vell + Tony Stark + Speed team (amazing how badly one carelessly placed object token can kill your game) and wearing down a Sentry one-man-army. The roundup: Ares (Chaos War 034): […]

Token Totin’ Tuesday: Chaos War (part 4)

July 24, 2012


Continuing the photographic record of just how each character with the Super Strength power can hold their object token (the old ones, anyway. The newer ones found in the Avengers and Dark Knight Rises starter sets might be too thick) somewhere on the sculpt unassisted. We’re almost done with Chaos War, a set that’s surprisingly […]

Card Art #13 & #14

July 23, 2012


Back to my regular rotation of talking about DC feats and BFC cards that I went back and customized with artwork for fun. (Here’s a link back to the original concept.) Continuing with the Collateral Damage set’s feats. First is Flashbang:   The artist is Rags Morales, I believe, from Paul Levitz’s mediocre series-killing run […]

F.U.N. Friday: The Dark Knight (and power creep) Rises

July 20, 2012


A brief survey of Heroclixin’ (or clicking on the “About Heroclixin'” link above) shows that this website isn’t very focused on the meta aspects of this game. But darn if the metagame doesn’t make you anyway. Lately there have been quite a few figures and mechanics release which go pretty counter to the F.U.N. aesthetic […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: CHAOS WAR (part 3)

July 19, 2012


Slowly making our way through Chaos War’s Super-Strong click and how they hold their tokens. Today, I’ve got a shot of this demigodly duo: As you can see, they’ve got NO problem indicating that they’re holding the object.

Battle Reports: Unplayed pieces roundup!

July 18, 2012


One of my standing goals in my HeroClix hobby is this: to play every single piece in my collection at least once. This was an easy goal to meet when I could get to 3-4 tournaments each week and the pace of releases weren’t so frenetic. But now, my modest tackle box dedicated to unfielded […]
