Heroclix 21st October, Crisis on Infinite Earths: Week Five

Welcome to another Heroclix post. So far in the campaign I am sitting on eight wins out of twelve rounds, currently at second place and have only last eight characters. This week's, Week Five is the second week of the Death of a hero part of the campaign. Round thirteen is 200 points, round fourteen is 400 points and round fifteen is 500 points with only three actions a turn.

So Round Thirteen, 200 points. As I lost the 79 points Crisis Robin the week before last, I decided to replace his with Nightwing from Crisis who is the same points cost.

Batman (Justice League) 75
Nightwing (Crisis) 79
Spoiler (Vet Legacy) 22
Robin (Starter Icons) 22
=198 points and two re-rolls.

I went up against Adrian’s 200 points team. He was using a bloody Fantastic Four team again with:

Invisible Girl (Exp Clobberin Time) 57 + Fantastic Four 5 = 62
Spiderman (Secret Invasion) 50 + Fantastic Four 5 = 55
Logan (Vet Clobberin Time) 60 + Fantastic Four 5 + Auto Regain 12 = 77
=194 points and 1 re-roll.

Arrrrr, fucking 19 defence stealth with Logan too. When I need 8s or more to hit I can not get it and when he needed a 11 or more he gets it. Sadly I lost this match and both Batman and Robin were MIAed.

Next was Round Fourteen, 400 points three actions. I used a remade 400 points team. This was the last team I rebuilt, I had transfared Spider-Girl to my 500 points team which left a huge gap in my team. I decided to go non theme wild cards. First I added Expeince Ragman to the team first as he was a Mystic with Stealth which would help my team a lot. Then I added Spider-Man from Secret Invasion as a attack piece and then Thinker as I needed a standard outwitter for the team. This is how the team turned out.

Batman (Arkham Asylum) 64
Cosmic Boy (Legion of Super Heroes) 70
Dream Girl (Justice League) 50
Karate Kid (Crisis) 63
Ragman (Exp Collateral Damage) 47
Spider-Man (Secret Invasion) 50
Thinker (Arkham Asylum) 55
=399 points and no re-rolls.

I was up against Michael’s 400 points team. He was using a non theme team with:

Cosmic Boy (Legion of Super Heroes) 70     
Enchantress (Hammer of Thor) 141
Moleman (Secret Invasion) 50           
Ulik (Hammer of Thor) 118   
=379 points and no re-rolls.

This was intresting one. Michael’s Cosmic Boy TKed Ulik into Thinker and then he OKed my Thinker with one hit. Great, luckliy he did not go MIA. Batman, Spider-Man and Karate Kid mobbed him and OKed him. Then Enchantress TKed Michael’s Cosmic Boy up and Spider-Man and Karate Kid mobbed him. Then Moleman tried to move into stop my Prob from Dreamgirl, but she kicked him where it hurts and my Cosmic Boy TKed her away. Spider-Man OKed and MIAed Michael’s Cosmic Boy and then Batman and Karate Kid mobbed Moleman. Batman OKed him and he became MIAed. After that my guys stayed in cover and surrounded Enchantress slowly shotting her appart, but sadly time ran out and I could not OK her. However I did win the game.

The last round of the week, Round fifteen, which was a 500 points game. As I lost half my team I had a lot of work to do. First off was the easy bit, replacing Secret Invasion Iron Man. I could ever go far Supernova Iron Man with the Stunning Blow feat at 170 points or Armour Wars LE Tony Stark with Brillant Taction and Coopanation Feats at 176 points. I decided to choose the Supernova one. Then I transferred Spider-Girl to this team to replace Spider-Man. Then I added the Rookie Infinity Challnge Scarlet Witch who I did not realised had the Avengers keyword to replace the Avengers set one. And lastly with the points left over I added Wasp.

Hawkeye (Avengers) 56 + Thunderbolts ATA 8 = 64
Iron Man (Supernova) 160 + Stunning Blow 10 = 170
Mockingbird (Vet Super Nova) 34
Scarlet Witch (Rook Infinity Challenge) 29
Spider-Girl (Secret Invasion) 77
Yellowjacket (Secret Invasion) 100
Wasp (Starter Universe) 19
=493 points and three re-rolls.

I went up against Darren’s 500 points team again. He was using his Thunderbolts team with:

Bullseye (Web of Spider-Man) 117 + Thunderbolts ATA 8 = 125
Moonstone (Hammer of Thor) 76 + Thunderbolts ATA 8 = 84
Venom (Hammer of Thor) 73 + Thunderbolts ATA 8 = 81
Norman Osborn (Web of Spider-Man) 66 + Thunderbolts ATA 8 = 74
Radioactive Man (Vet Super Nova) 80 + Thunderbolts ATA 8 = 88
Songbird (Rook Fantastic Forces) 44 + Thunderbolts ATA 8 = 52
=504 points and three re-rolls. (House Rules least him go over him build value, as long as he does not have any feats and is a non-generic themed team).

Avengers vs. Thunderbolts, round 3. So far it has been one win per team. For the first half of the game we were both playing super deffencivly. Never of us wanted to attack first as we know it would leave are self open for an all out attack. But Darren finally bit the bait of Wasp and Mockingbird. It was a close battle and if it continual a little longer Darren would have gotten the advantage but time ran out. I have had KOed Moonstone, Norman Osborn and Radioactive Man, while he had only KOed Iron Man and Mockingbird so I won the third battle in is epic battle of Avengers vs. Thunderbolts. That is two wins out of three game. Sadly both Iron Man and Mockingbird ended up being MIAed. Great, I have to replace Iron Man again.

Sadly there is no Heroclix next week, so week 6 of the campaign will happen in two weeks time. It will be the last week of the Death of a Hero part of the campaign. Round sixteen is 300 points, round seventeen is 200 points and round eighteen is 200 points.

Wow I have more news this week. Close up pictures have appear internet of standard boosters for the Giant Size X-Men. They revile that Next Wave will be in the set as they showed of two members The Captain and Elsa Bloodstone. Also they show off three X-Men characters, Ice Man, Magneto and Armor. Also two new ATA has been released, one for Outlaws and one for Dark Avengers. The Outlaws one is an interesting one and at one point, something very useful. The Dark Avengers one is great, but a lot of the Dark Avengers can have Thunderbolts ATA which can be a lot more useful but at twice the cost. Wizkids have started previewing the figures from the Brightest Day Action Pack which is out next week. So far they have reviled Hawkgirl. Hawkgirl is a very good and play game piece, however according to most people on the HC Realms boards she is not very comic book accurate and suffer from a lack of keywords, but not as bad as most of the Blackest Night was. Checking the HC Realms forum I have found that they have all the states and power up. I am really thinking on getting this set as there is a lot of great figure. Best of all is the living Deadman. Here is a link to the post Lastly Wizkidz have announced that they are planning to bring Mage Knight back. Will this be there undoing as they will suffer from the problem in the past with have too many game going at once (Heroclix, Horrorclix, Actionclix, Pirates, Battlestar Galactic, MechWarrior and Mage Knight) or will it succeed. We will have to wait and see.

In this week’s DreamClix I will be doing Elixir from New X-Men, Axe-Hand Morgan from One Piece and Ryuk from Death Note, the Zodiac Warrior from episode three of the Iron Man Anime and also a dial for Naruto Uzumaki from Naruto.  However I like to change the wording to the Naruto TA to: Characters with this TA can ignore terrain while movement apart from indoor blocking, indoor walls and characters. Also I like to state if I said Mystic as a keyword in the past or future I meant Mystical.

First off Elixir, real name Josh Foley, first appears as a member of the Reavers, an anti-mutant group led by Donald Pierce. When Cerebro detects a mutant in the area, Danielle Moonstar and Karma investigate. The Reavers attack Moonstar's New Mutants squad, and one of Foley's allies is severely injured. Leaning down to aid his friend, Foley's mutant power manifests and he heals Laurie Collins. Outed as a mutant, much to his own surprise, and rejected by his friends and family, Josh reluctantly joins the Xavier Institute and becomes Prodigy's roommate, a situation neither finds appealing. Unable to overcome their bigotry, Josh's parents sign legal guardianship over to Dani Moonstar. He is assigned to Dani's New Mutant squad who eventually reach out to him as he comes to accept his mutation. Elixir is an Omega-level mutant, capable of controlling the biological structure of any organic matter including his own body. He is still inexperienced in the use of his powers, and the limits of his abilities are unknown. He must be in close proximity to whomever he heals, but can heal through clothing. Initially, all Josh could do was heal cuts and wounds. At one point, he also restored Wolfsbane's mutation. Sometime later, the Stepford Cuckoos telepathically copied and transferred all the information that Beast knew about anatomy, biology, and genetics into Josh's mind. This essentially gave him all that he needs to know to fully utilize his Omega-level biological powers. He demonstrates his new power by healing David's vision so he does not need eyeglasses, rebuilds David's ripped heart and boosted Laura's healing factor to save her from dying again. Elixir has displayed the ability to harm as well as heal, such as causing painful boils and welts to appear on the flesh of his enemies. He even used his powers to kill William Stryker, although the resulting feedback also altered his own body and brain; Prodigy hypothesizes that he was never meant to use his powers in this manner. When channelling his powers in harmful ways, Elixir's skin turns from its usual gold, to metallic black. According to Wolverine, when Elixir used his abilities to kill Wither, he's finding it hard to revert back to his gold form. During his time with X-Force, Elixir has demonstrated increased mastery of his powers: he is capable of sedating an enraged Wolfsbane, cleaning her body of drugs, granting himself and Archangel a healing factor and curing people of the Legacy Virus. His control over his abilities is now so refined that he was not only capable of giving Vanisher a brain tumor, but even of shaping it into the X-Men logo. Because of his control over his own biology, Elixir has proven to be very difficult to treat medically. He usually passes out after pushing his powers too far and remains in a coma for some time. Doctor Nemesis guessed that during these times, his DNA reboots itself. He should have specials like "Harm Ours" and "Heal Friends" as well as powers like Stealth, Incapacitate and Defend.
"Harm Ours: Elixir can use Close Combat Expert. If he does he takes one click of pushing damage."
"Heal Friends: Elixir can use Support but the minimum he can heal is 1 and no 0."
He should have four or five clicks of health and starting states of movement 7, attack 9, defence 14, damage 1 and range 0. The idea of giving him Defend with a low defence is that it will make him able to heal people with out giving him a high attack value. He should also have the X-Men TA and the keywords Teen, Reavers, New X-Men and X-Force.

Next is Axe-Hand Morgan from One Piece. Former Captain Morgan, called "Axe-Hand Morgan" since he literally has an axe for a right arm, is the first Marine officer of significant rank to be seen in the series. He's also the main villain of the Morgan arc. He has been stripped of his status that he had been abusing for three years. As a Marine Captain, Morgan has command over lower-ranking subordinates and citizens. He heavily abused this authority to get what he desired. He was eventually stripped of his rank and authority. In battle, Morgan has a massive axe installed in place of his right arm, to which was strong enough to slash through an entire wall with one swing through a shock wave. He also seems to have good endurance, as he is the sole survivor of Kuro's wrath three years ago. He should have the powers like Charge, Blades, Toughness and Willpower. He should have six to eight clicks of health and starting states of movement 6, attack 10, defence 16, damage 2 and range 0. He should also have the One Piece TA and the keywords Marine.

Next is Ryuk from Death Note. He is a Shinigami bored with the activities (or lack thereof) of the Shinigami Realm, so he decides to obtain a second Death Note and drop it in the human world for someone to find, hoping to amuse himself from the boredom. He deliberately writes the instructions inside the front cover (in English, which he assumed to be the most popular language in the human realm) so people would understand its purpose. The Death Note is discovered by Light Yagami, and Ryuk follows him around for much of the series to see how Light uses it. Ryuk has a fairly humanoid appearance. Ryuk should have a trait called “Shinigami Being” and powers like Flight, Phasing, Psychic Blast and Willpower.
Shinigami Being: When Ryuk deals damage from a range attack, he heals the same amount of click as to the damage he dealt. Ryuk ignores all terrain and characters when drawing line of sight. Characters cannot draw line of sight to Ryuk unless they have the Mystical keyword. Also Ryuk cannot carry.”
He should have about six clicks of health and starting states of movement 10, attack 10, defence 18, damage 2 and range 12 with one target. He should also have the Mystics TA and the keywords Shinigami, Death Note and Mystical.  With this I am changing Light’s keywords to Teen, Mystical and Death Note. The keyword Death Note is not meant to be the show but to note that they are Death Note users.

Next is the Zodiac Warrior from episode three of the Iron Man Anime. Sadly they never reviled their name this week so I did not know which sign it is. But as it creates Tornadoes, at a guess it has to be one of the wind based ones Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. Now then let me see, he should have two special “Tornado” and “Tornado’s Rage” also powers like Flight, Giant, Flurry, Force Blast, Super Strength, Invulnerability and Toughness.
Tornado: This character can use Poison and Stealth. At the end of your turn place hindering terrain markers on all adjacent squares regardless of elevation. Hindering terrain markers placed by this character are classed as being in all levels and they removed form play at the beginning of your turn.”
Tornado’s Rage: This character can use Telekinesis but only on characters that are adjacent to it. The target that is successful moved by Telekinesis is dealt one click damage.”
It should have five or six clicks of health and starting states of movement 8, attack 10, defence 16, damage 2 and range 2 with two targets. It should also have the Hydra TA and the keywords Zodiac, Armour and/or Robot.

Lastly here are the dials for Naruto Uzumaki from Naruto and his Shadow Clone pod.

As there is not Heroclix next week as the brothers , I will be doing a DreamClix double bill. I am planning on doing two Iron Man Armours, a generic Konohagakure ninja from Naruto, Master Roshi from Dragon Ball, a generic Marine from One Piece, Acidwire from Bleach and dials for Money D. Luffy from One Piece and a powerless Rukia. Until next time, enjoy.
