Heroclixin’ is going to Dragon*Con

August 25, 2014


For as long as this blog has been active (FIVE YEARS?!?), yours truly has, at minimum, put in an appearance each Labor Day weekend at one of the largest sci-fi/fantasy conventions in the U.S., the massive nerd prom known as Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Ga. This year is the third that I’ll be acting as one […]

Taking a bit of a hiatus.

October 2, 2013


So the combination of going away to Anime Weekend Atlanta and coming home to a carload of urgent project deadlines has kept me from updating as I wanted to. Therefore, Heroclixin’ is going to take a little break to retool and recharge. There’ll be some short battle reports and Token Totin’ pix, to be sure. […]

Token Totin’ Thursday: DRAGON*CON

August 30, 2012


This is a different sort of “Token Totin'” in that it’s not about what Super Strong characters in HeroClix can hold object tokens. Rather, it’s about the fact that some super FANS in HeroClix are toting prized objects for the gaming at Dragon*Con in Atlanta starting tomorrow. There’s a ton of prizes ranging from Gale […]

Updated Glossary.

May 30, 2012


With some embarrassment, I recently noted that nearly a year has passed since a reader posted a comment requesting some terms be added to Heroclixin’s glossary. A. Year. So yeah, sorry man. Better late than never, but really it shouldn’t get to that point. Check it out for previously missing terms like “meta” and killbox” […]

A pocket checklist for AVENGERS MOVIE set!

May 8, 2012


Here’s Heroclixin’s customary pocket checklist for you! It took a little more time than usual to compile this one because of the diverse releases including: the 11-figure mass-market-only release (collector numbers 201-211) the game- and comic-shop countertop release (numbers 001-042, with 023-040 representing the 3-piece team packs exclusive to this release) the foil-wrapped release in […]

Has Heroclixin’ affected the game? Could be…

February 17, 2012


Back in December, I did a little Top Ten list of the most-needed changes in HeroClix. Well, about a week ago, WizKids released downloadable updates to the Team Abilities card, introducing a new one (Avengers Initiative), bringing many existing TAs in line with current rules and rulings (such as SHIELD or Quintessence), and giving others […]

Merry Clixmas: a pocket checklist for HULK set!

December 15, 2011


A new full-sized set of HeroClix was due  today. Here’s Heroclixin’s customary pocket checklist for you! (I’d intended this to be available earlier, but the “Publish” button on WordPress’s Quick Post feature  appears to be non-function on my browser at the moment.) Be back next week for the resumption of Token Totin’ — finally! — […]

Happy Thanksgiving!!

November 24, 2011


Hello, all! It’s been a little while since my last update; I apologize for that. I’d like to say that real-life stuff got in the way during that aforementioned while. And it did, to a degree; time I would’ve spent  writing I was instead preparing a package for my mortgage company as I deal with […]

Heroclixin’ goes Halloween-y…and HALO

October 5, 2011


I’ve long had a prickly relationship with the whole Halloween thing. On the one hand, its roots are dark, very dark, and celebration of such seems unbecoming. On the other hand, I love the fun of it — the candy, the costuming, the disarming and lampooning of frightening things (the whole song “Thriller” is kind […]
