Top Ten Winners/Losers in 2013’s changes: #8 & #7

April 30, 2013


GIANT REACH For some reason, WizKids didn’t want giants to use their hands. First, they could only Carry when they had zero tokens. Then, only on move actions. Now, Giants can finally Carry without restriction, just as fliers and Transporters can. They also still ignore Plasticity, and so are among the very few characters who […]

Top Ten Winners/Losers in 2013’s changes: #10 & #9

April 29, 2013


Another spring in Heroclix, another new rulebook. Last year’s update merely tweaked a few things besides adding the then-new Split and Merge mechanics, compared to 2011’s overhaul. 2013’s making that overhaul look like a cosmetic makeover. There are definite winners and losers again this year. For the next four days, Heroclixin’ will highlight two winners […]

Token Totin’ Tuesday: Big Barda (Batman)

April 23, 2013


Continuing the photographic record of how HeroClix can hold their object tokens. Let’s look at the bruiser of the Batman set, Big Barda: She holds hers OK under her cape IF you use the chintzy lightning on her Mega-Rod to help. ___ I’ve been planning to publish the Top Ten list I was working on […]

Card Art #23

April 15, 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 next feat of the set is Dissent, another I forgot to include when I uploaded these cards to Heroclixin’: […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: Batman

April 11, 2013


Continuing the photographic record of which Super-Strong characters can hold cardboard object tokens. Here are a couple that I missed from the Batman set months back. Batman (Batman 056) has a good hold under his cape. Maul (Batman 024) doesn’t grip his quite as tightly, but it’s fine and it’s arguably cooler. ____ Was set […]

Battle report: Legion of Monsters

April 10, 2013


So I attended a sealed event and this is what I pulled: Shocker Rhino Demogoblin Daimon Hellstrom Morbius Spider-Girl Werewolf By Night Frank Drake Cloak Dagger Of the eight-plus contestants, I was one of the only ones not to pull a Super Rare or better. And although I still lack about a third of the […]

Token Totin’ Tuesday: Vixen (Streets of Gotham)

April 9, 2013


Continuing the Heroclixin’s photographic record of which Super-Strong characters can hold the game’s cardboard object tokens. Here’s Vixen from Streets of Gotham: She can’t hold the older skinny tokens I prefer to use…not without using the little slots in the back of the HeroClix base as shown above. The newer, thicker tokens don’t fit in […]
