Figure Flush week six (2 of 2): The Breakfast Club(s)

March 29, 2013


Had a series of “Breakfast Club” games where no one could share keywords. By team: ————– Captain America (Chaos War 203) rolled a lot of Leadership and made some attacks. Aside from the stellar Rare from 2011’s Captain America set, this piece might be the most Cap-like of them all and may well be my […]

Figure Flush week six (1 of 2):

March 27, 2013


Week six is done. Almost through. This time I’ll review these by team. These barely got a workout in a shortened game: Batman (DC 10th Anniversary 001) has Leap/Climb and Outwit and 12 AV and is only 63 points. He was about to wreck it. But time was up. On the other hand, Batman (Streets […]

Figure Flush week five (part 2 of 2)

March 22, 2013


Here’s what else I played past weekend and what my impressions were: Both versions of Black Glove Demon (Streets of Gotham) were little more than easy points in their game. I think one needs to run at least three of them to really make them work. Dwalin the Dwarf (The Hobbit 006) got overwhelmed in […]

Figure Flush week five (“Or…is it merely an ILLUSION?!?”)

March 20, 2013


In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, this past Saturday’s game was green. All characters had to be wearing the color or BE the color. Among two other teams I ran, I finally got to run a force composed entirely of that fishbowl-helmed master of illusion: Mysterio (Web of Spider-Man) 75 x2 Rookie Mysterio (Ultimates) 44 […]

Card Art #22

March 17, 2013


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 begins with Origin’s Feat cards. The first feat of the set is Mercenary, a confusing feat with too much text to possibly fit an image. […]

Figure Flush week four (part 2 of 2)

March 15, 2013


The report of Figure Flush week four continues. In alphabetical order again: Alfred Pennyworth (Batman 031) was a boon to the Batman Fam team he backed. Not enough to actually WIN, but he’s OK. I’ll probably look to the 25-point Unique version instead, though, in the future. Azrael (Batman 104) just comes off as weak, […]

Figure Flush week four (part 1 of 2)

March 13, 2013


No characters could share keywords for this tournament. Animal Man (DC 75th Anniversary W-5) Bilbo Baggins (Hobbit 001) Cloak (Amazing Spider-Man 202) Emma Frost (Marvel 10th Anniversary 014) False Facer (Streets of Gotham 007a) Gardener (Infinity Gauntlet 004) Hannibal King (Amazing Spider-Man 013b) Howard Stark (Avengers Movie 021) Knuckles (Infinity Challenge) Wonder Woman (Streets of […]

Token Totin’ Tuesday: Super-strong Streets of Gotham

March 12, 2013


Continuing Heroclixin’s photographic record of Super-Strong figs that can hold objects. There were a few in Streets of Gotham that got missed in all the holiday and early-year Top Ten madness. Hawk (Streets of Gotham 018 and Fast Forces 005 ) holds his token very firmly under his cape. The Venom-pumped Ghost of Batman (051) also […]

Top Ten FAVORITES of 2006

March 8, 2013


A fellow poster on HCRealms started a thread about figures we love, but forgot thanks to all the new hotness. That revived this idea for a Top Ten I had while doing my list of favorites of 2012: listing my faves for all the years prior to 2010, the first year I tallied. I started […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: KILLER CROC

March 7, 2013


Continuing the photographic record of Super-Strong figs, we’re taking a look back at some we missed in Streets of Gotham, starting with this scaly guy: Killer Croc (021) holds this token very securely between his left paw and knee. _____ Tomorrow: A new — and shorter — version of the usual Top Ten list I do […]
