F.U.N. Friday: Ginger Avengers

August 31, 2012


A couple of weeks back, an unexpected team won it all at GenCon’s HeroClix World Championship: Scarlet Witch (Chaos War Fast Forces 006), Wasp (Chaos War 030) and Morgan Le Fay (Chaos War) with a fully loaded Infinity Gauntlet. I was pretty pleased to have already bought one fairly cheaply off eBay about a week earlier. A […]

Dragon*Con bye round teams: part 1

August 31, 2012


As I said Thursday, I’m part of the judge staff at Dragon*Con this year, and I might be called upon to play a bye round in the event of uneven pairings. Here’s what I’d play in the 6PM Avengers Vs. X-Men event: AVENGERS Giant-Man (Chaos War 200) 300 Wasp (Chaos War 030) 77 Wasp (Chaos War 016) […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: DRAGON*CON

August 30, 2012


This is a different sort of “Token Totin'” in that it’s not about what Super Strong characters in HeroClix can hold object tokens. Rather, it’s about the fact that some super FANS in HeroClix are toting prized objects for the gaming at Dragon*Con in Atlanta starting tomorrow. There’s a ton of prizes ranging from Gale […]

Battle Report: Infinity Gauntlet Month 8 THE REVENGE

August 29, 2012


Well, not exactly “revenge.” It’s just another tournament for the colossal Thanos that I actually qualified for this time. The same parameters applied: 500 points of elements from Chaos War, Galactic Guardians or Incredible Hulk only. And I still lacked the chaeese* figures of the day (Sentry and Void or Thanos 049), so I again opted […]

Token Totin Tuesday: Giant-Man (Chaos War)

August 28, 2012


A few weeks ago, I nearly wrapped up the photo record of how Chaos War figures could hold their object tokens, but lacked the convention exclusive Giant-Man from the set to test and shoot. Well, thanks to friends who went to GenCon, I’ve managed to get the shot. Big Pym holds old-school tokens with ease: […]

Card Art #18

August 27, 2012


Continuing this series 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.) Today, Card Arts moves on to the next DC set: Origin. I actually forgot about this battlefield condition until I started writing this post. I’d never made an […]

F.U.N. Friday: Pym Morphing Guide

August 24, 2012


So Hank Pym (Chaos War 014) has this Nifty trait: “MORPH: HANK PYM: Give Wasp a move or close combat action that deals no pushing damage. After the action resolves, replace him with any character with this trait on the same click number.” And he shares it with four other pieces in the set: Ant-Man (Chaos War […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: YELLOWJACKET (Secret Invasion)

August 23, 2012


Continuing Heroclixin’s photographic record of Super-Strong figs that can hold objects is this sometimes big boy: Somewhat surprisingly, Yellowjacket can hold an object token between his head and left shoulder ridge thing. It’s not a great hold, but it’s there. _____ Mr. Henry Pym wasn’t picked at random. Be here tomorrow for a F.U.N. primer […]

Battle Report: 400-point Robotic swarm

August 22, 2012


I had a lot of unplayed pieces to run as usual and built this Robot-themed team: Cyborg (52 Justice League 006) 100 Vision  (Chaos War 013) 27 + Secret Avengers ATA 5 Ultron (Chaos War 208e) 90 Masque (Chaos War 206) 50 + Secret Avengers ATA 5 Masque Duplicate (Chaos War 007 ) 27 Masque Duplicate (Chaos War 20 ) 27 = […]

Token Totin Tuesday: The New 52!

August 21, 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. After nearly a year without DC Comics-based clix (the Dark […]
