It’s been a little while since the last bonafide Heroclixin’ update, it’s true. Ye olde blogger has been a bit bogged down in minor RL annoyances compounded with viewing old movies and TV shows on DVD — and, of course, playing actual games of HeroClix. Planning to get things back in gear in May.

There was an interesting thread on HCRealms yesterday titled: “How do you ‘Clix?” It was really asking about other fans’ buying habits. Here’s how I do. I used to buy a brick of each full-sized set.

No. 8 Brother Voodoo He survived the first Watch List intact because its changes affected him. However, he’s still such a good piece and priced so cheaply that he’s almost an auto-pick for any competitive team today.
