Token Totin’ Thursday: FEAR ITSELF [part 6]

September 26, 2013

0

Continuing this photographic record of figures hefting objects, let’s look at some more from Fear Itself, like the Slinger below, Prodigy [Fear Itself]: He doesn’t do much else other than die in most of the FI games Heroclixin’ has witnessed, but he holds his token perfectly between his left arm and leg. ____ Future editions […]

Figure Flush returns.

September 25, 2013

0

Although the store of unplayed HeroClix figures hasn’t reached the extremes of late 2012-early 2013, I’m still carting around more of these pieces than I care to. It’s all because changes to my work schedule and running Fear Itself events have taken a large bite out of my ability to play as many Clix games […]

Token Totin’ Tuesday: Wolverine+X-Men [part 4]

September 24, 2013

1

Continuing this photographic record of figures hefting objects, and our multi-week look at figs from the new Wolverine and the X-Men full set. Next up? A pair of Imperial Guardsmen, Warstar (Wolverine and The X-Men 048) and Gladiator  (Wolverine and The X-Men 074)  . Warstar’s hold is barely there; you have to wedge it JUST right for […]

Card Art #40: Sidestep

September 23, 2013

0

Continuing the series recounting how I added art to DC cards to make ’em prettier. The next feat of Crisis WOULD be Opportunist, but it’s another WOT (Wall of Text) card that leaves little or no room for art. So it’s on to the next in line: Man. At the time, there were very few […]

Fighting Fire with F.U.N.: The Watch List

September 20, 2013

4

Welcome back to an occasional series Heroclixin’ likes to call Fighting Fire with F.U.N. Here, we try to help players figure how not to have games ruined by overpowered mechanics. But that’s been, well, sort of impossible lately. The kind of stuff that Heroclixin’ ranked last year in its Top Ten Torrid Things is junior league […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: FEAR ITSELF [part 5]

September 19, 2013

0

Continuing this photographic record of figures hefting objects, let’s look at some more from Fear Itself. Nul [Fear Itself 032] can decently balance an object token on his head and arm as shown. HAMMERTIME HULK SMASH. ____ Future editions of Token Totin’ Thursday will highlight more Fear Itself until it’s all shown. Have F.U.N. Heroclixin!’

F.U.N. favorites: Vixen & her amazing friends

September 18, 2013

1

So I had this idea for an eventual Top Ten list: The Best Animals for Vixen (Streets of Gotham 028) to run with. Remember, she topped my Favorites of 2012, especially when I thought her “pick a power” trait might be way more awesome  than it really is. It didn’t stop me from trying her out […]

Token Totin’ Tuesday: Wolverine+X-Men [part 3]

September 17, 2013

0

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. Next up? White King (Wolverine and The X-Men): His coattails serve to hold the token. Stylish AND practical. Legion (Wolverine +The X-Men) uses his blue psycho energy to hold his […]

Card Art #39: Isolation

September 16, 2013

0

Continuing the series recounting how I choose art for DC cards to make ’em prettier. Here’s the next BFC in the set: Though he’s my favorite character, Aquaman on a wrecked throne well-illustrates the card. This was from a cover 2/3 through his 2002 series run, just after Atlantis had gotten smooshed by the insane […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: FEAR ITSELF [part 4]

September 12, 2013

0

Continuing this photographic record of figures hefting objects, let’s look at the Jugga’naut, #####: Kuurth [Fear Itself 026] can juuuuust barely balance an object token on his head and arm as shown. There might be another hold available, but I didn’t find one in the minute or so I had with someone else’s copy of […]
