Welcome to another Heroclix post. This week is a 400 points Rookie Rumble. All figures must be from the same universe, no feats and rookie rank figures only. There is no Luke this week as he is busy and we were meant to have Phil this week too but he phoned Darren moments before 7AM to say he can not come this week. Due to the number of players one play had to take a bye each round and we manage to squise five rounds in so that everybody faces everybody and got a bye.
For once in I long time I just need to build one team. I started my team with Red She-Hulk and then built it about the Brute keyword. My team ended up being:
Red She-Hulk (Web of Spider-Man) 139
She-Hulk (Supernova) 65
Hulk (Universe) 103
Molten Man (Web of Spider-Man) 82
=389 points and two re-rolls.
In the first round I was up agaist Adrian. He was using a non themed team.
Mandarin (Xplosion) 107
Psylocke (Armour Wars) 45
Black Panther (Universe) 27
Scarlet Witch (Fantastic Forces) 35
Calypso (Clobberin Time) 29
Silver Suffer (Super Nova) 121
Mystique (Universe) 34
=398 points and no re-rolls.
He had too much Preplex, Outwit and Probability Control in his team to deal with. My whole team was OKed and I only managed to OK his Black Panther. So I ended up lossing. The next round I got the bye so that was a automatic won for me. Due the bye I popped out to get a drink. The third round I was up agaist Michael. He was using a Teen themed team.
Phantom Girl (Legion of Super Heroes) 40
Batman (AA) 64
Klarion (Crisis) 76
Young Superman (Legion of Super Heroes) 100
Element Lad (AA) 70
Robin (Crisis) 35
=385 points and three re-rolls.
I had problems hitting him and ended up lossing the round. My dice rolls really sucked. On the four round, I was up agaist Darren. He was using a non themed team which was unlike him. They were even a mix of good and bad guys.
Osiris (75th) 101
Bane (75th) 140
Sargon the Sorcerer (75th) 57
Cosmic Boy (Critical Mass?) 45
Clay Face (Collatial Damage) 57
=400 points and no re-rolls.
Both Bane and Osiris are beast. Osiris high attack and Hypersonic and Bane's Outwit that was a trait, ten attack and Batman Emernies TA. Darren white washed me, so I lost again. Before the next round Darren told my what I was doing wrong with Red She-Hulk. I should be pushing her more until she is on her four click. However I it wound not have work on the first round sadly. The final round of the night I was up agaist Adam.
Young Superman (Legion of Super Heroes) 100
Wildcat (Origans) 54
Green Lantern (Origans) 85
Chife (Crisis) 63
Question (Origans) 40
Johnny Quick (75th) 50
=392 points and no re-rolls.
This game was close one. It ended up being his Johnny Quick on his second click verses my Red She-Hulk on her last click. Luckly he missed my high defence, 19, as miss caluated his movement which left him in the open for a ranged attack that OKed him. With ths I won the game by the skin of my teeth. Sadly I did not do too well this week, only two wins which one was from a bye.
Next week's game will 500 points, no feats, must be themed and the theme must be non-generic. Phil should hopefully be around next week, Luke should be back, but sadly there will be not Adrian and Michael next week as they will most likly be busy due to the school holidays. I am thinking of doing a Green Larntarn team using the new 75th Ann? Green Larntarns I picked up.
This week it was reviled that there will be a Captain America single figure booster set like the Green Lantern, however it will be based on the comics than the movie with Bucky as Captain Americe instead of Steve Rogers. Also previews of the Sentinel Mark II and four more Nextwave members have been reviled, the former Avenger Monica Rambeau, the former New Mutant Tabitha Smith, the monster hunter Elsa Bloodstone and Aaron Stack aka Machine Man. All seem like very good figures and can be early use in other theme team. Tabitha Smith is a lot better than the waste of plastic REV set of her back in Xplosion/Universe and I Am so wanting Aaron Stack. The Sentinel Mark II looks great, but I am not sure if the dial and cost goes together. Several of the powers that most colosusals had, like the old Sentinels, had the new one does not have. Like the continolus pushing and the multi attack. On other Heroclix news, Game Trade Magazine reviled another duo figure from the Giant Size X-Men set, Cable and Dead Pool, the world’s second greatest team up.
This week's Dreamclix I am doing for ShounenClix the Chase figures, Bardock from Dragon Ball, Kuina from One Piece, maybe Minato Namikaze from Naruto, maybe Kaien Shiba from Bleach and the dial design for Ichigo Kurosaki human form version from Bleach. For MAClix I am doing the dials for Captain Nagato Sakurai in and out of the Ramon Zero armour from the Iron Man anime. And lastly for MechaClix, I am doing Mecha Jetter, Priestol Q and maybe Goblin from Cosmic Break.
First off is Bardock from Dragon Ball Z. Bardock is a low-class Saiyan warrior and the father of Raditz and Goku (Kakarot). His life before flashbacks is unknown, but he is shown to lead his own squad into battle, and they are very successful in accomplishing assignments. He is an adept fighter and a devoted Saiyan Army soldier under Frieza's Planet Trade Organization, until he realizes that Frieza plans the annihilation of the Saiyan race. Given to him by the last Kanassan warrior, was the ability to see into the future and it is through these visions that he sees the eventual Genocide of the Saiyans. He should have the Flight ability, Super-Strength, Indomitable, Invulnerability, Toughness, Leadership and Probability Control. Due to fact he was only in flashbacks and an animated special I would stay he should have six clicks of health, but he was a Saiyan and a strong warrior so hwe might be better off with eight clicks. He starting states should be something like Movement 8, Attack 10, Defence 16, Damage 4 and Range 8 with one target. He should have the Dragon Ball TA and the keywords Past, PTU, Saiyan and Warrior.
Next is Kuina from One Piece. Kuina is the late childhood friend of Roronoa Zoro. She is the daughter of Koshiro. She is the reason why Zoro developed the Three Swords Style technique. One of Zoro's swords, the Wadō Ichimonji, belonged to Kuina. He treasures this sword more than any other sword. She should have Blades, Willpower and Outwit. She should have four to five clicks of health and starting states of Movement 8, Attack 10, Defence 17, Damage 1 and Range 0. She should have no TA and the keywords Kid and Past.

Kaien was the lieutenant of the 13th Division, under Jūshirō Ukitake and was the head of the Shiba clan, up until his death at the hands of a Hollow that also killed his wife, Miyako Shiba. He should have Charge, Blade, Tounghness, Willpower, Outwit, Perplex and Range Combat Expert.

Jet Tackle: Range attacks from Mecha Jetter always deals knock back.

Next time in DreamClix I am planning on doing for ShounenClix, I will be doing a special and doing two dial desgins, the generic Konohagakure Ninja from Naruto and Rukia Kuchiki Soul Reaper version from Bleach. For MAClix I will be doing the dial designs Ho Yinan in the Iron Man Dio armour and the Iron Man Sigma drones and for MechaClix I be doing ever a second IS: Infinite Stratos special, a second Ghost in the Shell special or a Code Geass special. Until next time, have fun.
