F.U.N. Fights: Rockin’ Robin[s]

April 9, 2014

0

Some years ago, I wrote about wanting to play a team of nothing but different version of Robin, The Boy Wonder. Well, I did this past weekend, with the following team:   Robin [Arkham Origins] 72 + Batman Family ATA 4 Robin [Arkham Asylum] 66 Robin [Streets of Gotham 048] 59 + Batman Family ATA 4 Robin […]

F.U.N. Fights: Legion again

March 26, 2014

0

So about a month ago, I boldly took a somewhat overmatched Legion of Super-Heroes team to a Top  8 finish in the highly competitive Realms Open Championship qualifier. I decided to try out a new Legion team for another big tournament with big prizes on the line. Superboy [SLOSH] 100 Cosmic Boy [201] 70 Phantom […]

F.U.N. Fights: Animals again

This past weekend I found myself taking another little road trip to a big tournament to play for F.U.N. and prizes. And again, I found myself trying to compete with this F.U.N. team: Lizard [Amazing Spider-Man] 88 Vixen [Streets of Gotham] 74 + Justice League: Generation Lost ATA 3 Alyosha Kraven [Amazing Spider-Man] 70 Beast […]

F.U.N. Fights: Legion of Super-Heroes at ROC [part 2]

March 7, 2014

0

A few weeks ago, I learned that most of the regular players from the venue that I judge at had decided en masse to attend one of the Realms Open Championship qualifiers in a neighboring state, resulting in a likely empty venue that weekend. So I decided to come along and enter the tournament for […]

F.U.N. Fights: War Machine OUT TO WIN

December 25, 2013

1

Merry Christmas to my readers! I gift you with a blow-by-blow battle report of a recent HeroClix game I played. So most of the time I’m just glad to be playing, trying new figs, building goofball themes — y’know, having F.U.N. But after all the mental errors and straight up FAIL I recounted in last week’s report, […]

F.U.N. Fights full of FAIL

December 18, 2013

0

One of the things that keep me humble is how badly I still manage to muck up in this game after all this time. Part of the reason is that I’m always, ALWAYS trying out unfamiliar figures. Other times it’s due to straight-up mental error. And then there’s dice. Take this weekend’s fight using the […]

F.U.N. Fights: Ride of the Valkyries

December 11, 2013

0

At last, that 900-point Golden Age opportunity to run this team came about. Valkyrie (Hammer of Thor 055) 145 + Not So Special 3 Valkyrie (Fear Itself 005) 130 + Contingency Plan 12 Mirage (Wolverine and The X-Men 004) 75 Valkyrie (Sinister 048) 71 + Not So Special 3 Brunnhilde (Sinister 204) 69  + Not So Special 3 […]

Figure Flush: 3600-point game

November 27, 2013

0

I work evenings, meaning I get home around midnight. Being a night person, I rarely go straight to bed. More often I’ll stay up watching a film or surfing the web or even working on this blog. But last week, I decided to play a big ol’ solo game of HeroClix to flush the rest […]

F.U.N. Fights: The Nine Lives of Catwoman

November 13, 2013

0

The scenario: 600 points, no team bases or resources. Because running clone swarms are one of my favorite things to do in HeroClix, I went all-Catwoman: Catwoman [Dark Knight Rises 006] 80 Catwoman [Batman 007] 71 Catwoman [Dark Knight Rises 102] 75 Selina Kyle [Batman] 69 Catwoman [DC 10th 015] 68 Catwoman [Dark Knight Rises […]

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 […]
