August 29, 2013

0

Continuing this photographic record of figures hefting objects, this time we look at a quartet of red females in the Fear Itself expansion. Starting with that ginger foe of the Avengers, Titania: She really can’t do much more than lamely lean the token on her right boob. At least it makes it plain that she’s […]

Continuing this photographic record of figures hefting objects, this time starting a multi-week look at figs from the new Wolverine and the X-Men full set. First up? Colossus (Wolverine and The X-Men 002 and 202) . Just nudge the big Russian back a bit and the token fits fine under his left wrist. A surprise […]

Card Art #37

Continuing the series recounting how I added art to DC cards to make ’em prettier. Last time, I promised another feat from 2007’s Justice League set. But the remaining feats of the set were either too laden with text to work — such as Contingency Plan — or are outright banned, like the Alternate Team […]

With Wednesday’s release of the Wolverine and the X-Men set, the core roster of the not-so-mighty GLA is complete. Mr. Immortal: 46 points of undying frequently dying tie-up; Doorman: 45-point taxi extraordinaire with 11 Speed and the ability to open a wall or blocking terrain for a round; Dinah Soar: The other taxi. Not quite as fast […]

My favorite thing to do in HeroClix is to run teams composed of various iterations of the same character. This time is was comics’ most popular Canucklehead’s turn: Wolverine (Giant-Sixe X-Men) 103 Wolverine (Giant-Sixe X-Men Fast Forces) 75 Wolverine (Web of Spider-Man) 105 Wolverine (Armor Wars 095) 60 Wolverine (Fantastic Forces) 71 Wolverine (Wolverine and […]

Continuing this photographic record of figures hefting objects, this time starting an overdue look at figs from the Fear Itself event. First up? “A” is for Asgardian Troll 002 who, at his 25 point cost, supplants Aquaman (Hypertime ) as the least expensive Super Strength non-bystander in the game. The Troll’s hold on the token is […]

Years ago, when HeroClix’s rebirth was in its infancy, I wrote about this  theme. Now, with a new Valkyrie figure, it’s time to cue up the Wagner and field the choosers of the slain again! RIDE OF THE VALKYRIES Valkyrie (Hammer of Thor 055) 145 + Not So Special 3 Valkyrie (Fear Itself 005) 130 Mirage (Wolverine […]

Concluding the photographic record of clix from the Teen Titans set with Super Strength that can hold the game’s cardboard object tokens. Today, let’s look at this last pair:   Despite being the standard burly brute character, Mammoth (011) can just barely tote his token. One must carefully balance it under his left wrist brace […]
