Token Totin’ Thursday: Amazing Spider-Edition (part 4)

February 28, 2013

0

Continuing the photographic record of Super-Strong figs in the Amazing Spider-Man set holding object tokens with the title character himself: Yup. Spider-Man (024) juuuuust grips the token as shown. But not only does the original Spidey tote tokens. Behold the latest version of the character, young Miles Morales: Spider-Man (039) needs a bit of webbing […]

Figure Flush week two (or how I learned to love the Utility Belt)

February 27, 2013

This is actually going to be more of a straight-up battle report, as the 900-point Modern Age tourney I attended got me the chance to play a big Birds of Prey theme: Big Barda (Batman) 148 Black Canary (Fast Forces) 100 Huntress (Fast Forces) 100 Hawk (Fast Forces) 100 Dove (Batman) 86 Katana (Batman) 76 Lady Shiva […]

Token Totin’ Tuesday: Amazing Spider-Edition (part 3)

Continuing Heroclixin’s photographic record of Super-Strong figs that can hold objects: Chase figure Prodigy (Amazing Spider-Man 001b) holds a token between his neck and outstretched arm. This hold works better with the newer, thicker tokens than the older variety I do most of my tests with. And while there are some more pix to share […]

Thanks to WizKids’ torrent of releases in 2012, my stable of unplayed figures has grown from the smallest of my cases to a lot of six leftover clamshells from Fast Forces and starter sets. But after adjusting the way I judge my venue, I’m able to get a lot more games in and no longer have […]

Continuing Heroclixin’s photographic record of Super-Strong figs that can hold objects, we move on through the Amazing Spider-Man set with: Wedging the token upright in the stat slot and wrist of Scarlet Spider (Amazing Spider-Man 001b & 209) works for him. Meanwhile, Rhino (020) tenuously grips his token where his left leg and torso meet. […]

So thanks to WizKids’ torrent of releases in 2012, my stable of unplayed figures has grown from the smallest of my cases to a lot of six leftover clamshells from Fast Forces and starter sets. So I’ve adjusted the way I judge my venue now. Instead of building a single team for playing the bye […]
