Above is a photo I took back in 2010. I was living on my own, and where I was living was roomy enough that I set up a “game room”. It was dominated by HeroClix. In the picture (which I’d posted to this blog at one point), I’d taken some extra Marvel and DC HeroClix dials, cut off the sculpts, the removed the sculptures from some of WizKids’ HorrorClix “The Lab” set’s Velociraptors I’d managed to get, made my own […]

Marvel HeroClix: What If? – Runaways: https://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/06/09/marvel-heroclix-what-if-runaways/ NICE! Missed these ‘previews’ yesterday. Glad to see a new version of ‘Arsenic & Old Lace’.
https://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/06/07/marvel-heroclix-what-if-punisher/ This is just wild! Shows how fun certain superhero concepts can be in the game of HeroClix, even if the comic book stories they draw from were only “so-so”….
Rules | HeroClix: https://wizkids.com/heroclix/gameplay/rules-format/ Been patiently waiting for WizKids to release the 2017 rules for HeroClix. Chomping at the bit, really. Re-reading the 2017 articles on the changes, linked above. Print and Play | HeroClix: https://wizkids.com/heroclix/print-and-play/ …….meanwhile, what the hell is this?— HeroClix Archive | HeroClix: https://wizkids.com/heroclix/products/heroclix-archive/
Disclaimer: I’m way, way behind on all the HeroClix releases. HUGE number of characters new and old coming into the game. I love my heroes, but ‘heroes versus heroes’ gets stale, and in order for our heroes to ‘fight the good fight’, somebody’s gotta be out there doing bad stuff. Supervillains are up to no good, heroes gotta fight them. ‘Nuff Said. Marvel supervillain: Doctor Karl Malus. “Evil Scientist.” I’d like to state for the record that real-life scientists are […]
I’m having a hard time keeping up with HeroClix, past few years. And I’ve zero time to play the game. Doesn’t keep from buying, doesn’t keep me from chasing down clix for my collection. The main selling points of HeroClix are that it’s a miniatures-based tabletop strategy game using some of *YOUR* favorite comic book superhero characters. But, since ‘heroes versus heroes’ can get a bit stale, it’s fortunate we’re seeing more and more ‘A’-list thru ‘Z’-list “supervillians” getting made […]
I love Rocket Raccoon. Have, still, in my dwindling comic book collection, the 4-issue limited series from the 1980’s. I keep wondering if there’s room in Marvel Studio’s schedule for R.R. to get a ‘stand-alone’ movie, his own ‘origin story’ movie? More like, he and Groot (or maybe without Groot?) take a break away from the Guatdians, with Rocket secretly following a lead about who he is and where he came from because he’s fonally curious enough and has a […]

Marvel HeroClix: AVENGERS/DEFENDERS WAR: Shifting Focus | HeroClix: http://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/04/26/marvel-heroclix-avengersdefenders-war-shifting-focus-part-i/ Love this particular use of the “Shifting Focus” design concept. Hmm, so, what’s best? Start game with Incap version? Or with PPB version to position, the SF into RS/Incap, then SG back later? Hmm. WOW. This was unexpected, and is very intriguing! I thought the non-SF version from a previous preview was interesting as well, so, will include it here for comparison–
Opinion: I have not read the currently on-going storyline this version of Steve “Captain America” Rogers is from. I’ve only read about it, and as a fan of Cap and Falc since the 70’s, I’m rather rankled by it. But, have others have said, it’s a stunt-story that needs to finish running its course, doing what Marvel does: tap into current current political and pop culture, hold up its twisted mirror to it. I don’t have to like it, don’t […]

HeroClix 2017 Rules 12: Reader Feedback! And Rules Tweaks! | HeroClix: http://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/03/29/heroclix-2017-rules-12-reader-feedback/ WOW. ZOMG. Changes just keep coming. The revised-revised rule concerning heavy objects and line of fire is even simpler. Too bad about Hide. Q: could Hide reappear as a Tiny symbol ability for line of fire to Tint characters thru light objects? Mind Control: i actually think there should be feedback damage. But, chance it, via a die roll. 1 in 6 for one target, 2 in 6 for […]
Marvel HeroClix Avengers/Defenders War- Porcupine | HeroClix: http://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/03/29/marvel-heroclix-avengersdefenders-war-porcupine/#iLightbox%5Bd1a28ebd855feda70b1%5D/0 Great to finally see Porcupine! (The various verions of the batttlesuit have a lot of offensive capabilities, though, so i hope they reuse the sculpt and come out with a version with range and other standard powers. I’M NOT COMPLAINING. Thank you, WizKids!) Also, i forgot to post the GotGv2 preview, and can’t get to WK’s post for some reason, so here’s the character pic —
Marvel HeroClix: Avengers/Defenders War – Nuke | HeroClix: http://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/03/24/marvel-heroclix-avengersdefenders-war-nuke/
http://wizkids.com/heroclix/2017/03/23/heroclix-2017-rules-11-probability-control/ 1) Simply can’t complain about the change to Probability Control. It makes sense, and is easier to use. 2) Loved this bit: “Ideally every standard power in HeroClix should be able to stand on its own and have useful and interesting things to do without needing to combo with other powers.” “So say we all” and “Amen” to that. Dear WizKids: This humble nobody HeroClix Player/Collector out here on the periphery of the HeroClix internet community thanks you, especially […]

So much simpler, makes much more sense. Mm-mm, makes me want to dust off the old FANTASTIC FORCES Green Goblin(s).
