F.U.N. Friday: Ginger Avengers

August 31, 2012

0

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 […]

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

0

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

0

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

0

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 […]
