MK HeroClix House Rules

Friday, 30 December 2011

HeroClix, 29th of December, Good bye 2011

Welcome to another week of HeroClix. The previews for this week were of Adam Warlock, Magus and Gladiator from the Galactic Guardians set; and U.S.S. Enterprise-E and I.K.S. Maht-H'a from the new Star Trek Tactics set. Also the dials for the Adam Warlock and the Infinity Gauntlet from the Infinity Gauntlet prize support has been leaked online, as well as Doombot, Drak, Galactus and Uatu The Watcher from Galactic Guardians.

This week's game was "3 is the Magic number". 333 points, the dial must have 3 on the start of the dial or on the dial base or the card (feat and ATA, not character cards). Things like 13 counts as it has 3 in it and names with Triple counts. The 1% extra team build for theme team without feat house rule will not be in effect this game. I was original planning on using a team based around Triplicate Girl who were:

Triplicate Girl (Veteran, Origin) 65
Lightning Lad (Legion of Super Heroes) 70
Cosmic Boy (Legion of Super Heroes) 70
Robin (Crisis) 79
Star-Spangled Kid (Legacy) 49
=333 points and one re-rolls!

But then at the last moment I changed to a Street Fighter team who were:

Dhalsim (Street Fighter) 100 + Retaliation (Feat) 5 = 105
Cammy (Street Fighter) 80 + Retaliation (Feat) 5 = 85
E. Honda (Street Fighter) 85
Chun-Li (Street Fighter) 50
=325 points and one re-roll

Have ever I did not see the text about a change little to the event rules. Teams that are 333 points on the dot gain two extra theme team re-rolls. So the Teen team would of have three re-rolls. Well any way in the first round I was up against Michael. He was using a Gotham City team who were:

The Question (Arkham Asylum) 37
Robin (Crisis) 79
Red Hood (Crisis) 81
Batman (Justice League) 75
Two-Face (Veteran, Unleashed) 61
=333 points and four re-rolls.

At first this game seemed close due to the amount of beeping Outwit and Preplex in the team. But I manage to pull off a victory with only losing half my team. On the second round I was up against Richy. He was using a X-Men Team who were:

Storm (Giant Size X-Men) 86
Wolverine (Giant Size X-Men) 103
Beast (Giant Size X-Men) 95
Karma (Experience, Fantastic Forces) 49
=333 points and four re-rolls.

Both Beast's and Wolverine's Combat Reflexes was a major pain and has given me more respect for this version of Beast. Due to the high numbers I needed to hit I ended up losing. In this game I could have really done with an Outwit or two. On the third round I was up against Darren. He was using a X-Force Team who were:

Archangel (Giant Size X-Men) 86 + X-Force (ATA) 3 = 89
X-23 (Web of Spider-Man) 60 + X-Force (ATA) 3 = 63
Warpath (Web of Spider-Man) 70 + X-Force (ATA) 3 = 73
Wolverine (Web of Spider-Man) 105 + X-Force (ATA) 3 = 107
=333 points and four re-rolls.

I real liked this team of Darren's and Archangel's third click is fantastic. Sadly his team creamed my team. On the fourth round I got the bye, which was an automatic win. Sadly due to time we did not get a fifth round in. If we did have the time I would going up against Adrian's Fantastic Four team who were:

Human Torch (Secret Invasion) 100
Ben Grimm (Fantastic Forces) 123
Spider-Man (Secret Invasion) 50
Logan (Clobberin Time) 60
=333 points and four re-rolls.

My team did not do to well this week. Darren seemed to think that the Teen team would had worked better due to the range and Outwit, but personal I think the Street Fighter team was the best out of the two due to both Michael's and Darren's teams being stealth teams.

Next week will be battle of the minis. 300 points, no figure over 70 points including feats. As Richy is heading back to Cardiff next Tuesday he will no longer be playing, but he might be back for the Easter Holidays.

Now for DreamClix. This week I will not be doing any dial ideas. Instead I am talking about the future of DreamClix on the blog.

First I would like to talk about the four new series I am adding and a series I am re-doing. The first new series I will be doing is the winner of the polls I have been doing, Square Enix, which will mostly be Finale Fantasy stuff. The of the two second place winners on the polls, Fairy Tail. The finale two are ones I have decided to do due to the fact that scale is now out of the bag due to Star Trek HeroClix. These are the Gundam UC universe and the Gundam AGE universe. I have a couple of ideas for new mechanics for the Gundam and Code Geass sets. The first being pilots/pilot cards. Each Mecha will have a Pilot list in the same way as keywords. Some might have the name "Any". Pilot Cards will be a bit like Feats, but can only be given to Mecha with the pilot name or the Any name that meet a per-requirement. The second mechanic will be the Support Card. These will be supporting characters that do not use Mobile Suits like Bright Noa, that supports the team from the background. Also due to the Lord of the Rings Horde mechanic and these new mechanics, I will be re-doing all the Code Geass stuff.

Next I would like to go over the layout of the DreamClix section in the HeroClix post from next year and about the DreamClix Dial Designs page update post. I will be keeping a four ideas and four designs layout from next week on. This is a cut down to the five of each I did in the past to gain more time to do other things. The ideas will now include cards. However things like ATAs, TAs and designs will be treated as half posts. Also I decided to fold the DreamClix Dial Designs page update posts into the HeroClix posts. The news on the updates will appear at the end of the post and the updates will happen every other day off work regardless of weeks (days where I work for less than two hours will be treated as a if is was a day off for this).

The Sunday posts (DreamClix Dial Designs page update and Watch, Listen and Read) and the Cosplay Deviants review post will both be replaced with a weekly Cosplay Deviants/CosmicBreak post were I will show preview pictures of the week's new Cosplay Deviants set, maybe a review of them, any news, CosmicBreak updates, a Cosplay card of a Deviants, a dial idea or design of a character that has been cosplayed by a Deviant and a CosmicBreak dial idea or design. This was a last moment change to changes I am planning.

Lastly, before I the last two Blade anime dial designs I like to list the stuff I have done and the current planned next three up and coming ideas. This does not include completed sets like the Marvel animes or season specials like the Christmas stuff or the Cosplay Deviants Cosplay cards.

Neoscream's Life, the 19th of December to Christmas Day

OK I should have used this picture for
Chopper last week
Welcome to a Christmas week of my life. The week before last was the start of the twelve days of ClixMas, but what did last week being. Apart from the opening One Piece picture, the other pictures of this week will be WizKids's twelve day of ClixMas again.

On Monday I worked from 11AM to 5PM. Other than that not much happened. Day seven of ClixMas was Star Trek ship HeroClix. Read the HeroClix post for the 22nd of December for more information. (Picture is with the ninth day.)

On Tuesday morning I posted the last week's Neoscream's Life post like normal. I worked from 12PM to 2:30PM. When I got home I chatted to Richy, an old friend of mine who lives in Cardiff now, on Facebook. He said he would be heading back to Milton Keynes for the holidays. The HDMI Splitter I ordered arrived. Later in the evening Blaire came online and I e-mailed a Christmas One Piece video I made online to several people, including the One Piece Unofficial Podcast. Day eight of ClixMas was the colossal Mole Monster.  (Picture is with the ninth day.)

Again on Wednesday I did do much other than working from 10AM to 3PM. Day nine of ClixMas was the nine Nazgûl from the Lord of the Rings Nazgûl box game.

On Thursday I worked from 11AM to 3:30PM. When I finished work I found I had a miss call from Richy. I phoned him and said that he would be going to HeroClix, but he needs me to build a team for him. After a little trouble getting home due to parents I found that the HDMI cable I had ordered had arrived. Yes should be able to plug the XBox 360 to the down stairs TV now, but that will have to wait until tomorrow. Richy arrived not long after I got home and we built his team. After HeroClix, to save time Richy built his next week team before heading home. After he left I found that the demo to OfficeSuite had ended so I had to pay for the full version. Now I do not know if I was being blind or it is a part of the full version but I can add things like pictures, tables and hyperlinks now. Day ten of ClixMas was Quarriors again.

Now for this week's CosmicBreak news. A bunch of new Christmas campaigns started. However as I am posting this post this picture appeared on Facebook with the statement "details coming soon".

On Friday I sadly did not have time to finish off the HeroClix before work as I did not do any work on it last night. I worked from 12PM to 4PM. When I got home I bought down the XBox 360 and hooked it up the the down stairs TV. Afterwards I decided to go online with it to check for DLC for a game I know I would be getting at Christmas. But sadly I needed to update the XBox 360 first. After getting the update and all the DLC for the game I received a text about plans for drinks on Christmas Eve. When all that was done I spent most of the evening finishing off and posting the HeroClix post. Before going to bed I wanted to do a last bit of Christmas wrapping, however my mum had hidden the sellotape. Day eleven of ClixMas reviled several new Skrull figures that are coming out of the Galactic Guardians.

On Saturday morning, Christmas Eve, before coffee I manage to do the last moment of gifts wrapping. Coffee was at 10AM. Darren H, Richard and Richy were all at coffee where we exchanged gifts. Darren H had not had the time to buy people gifts yet so he was not giving out gifts and sadly I could only give Richard one out of the two things I ordered for him as the other one had not arrived in the post yet. As we had a bit of time after coffee, we went to the book shop to have a quick look around before I went off to work. I worked 12PM to 3:15PM. It was very quite at work. As my dad was finishing work late me and my mum ordered Pizza in before I court the late bus to the City center. The buses stop operating at 8PM today. As I was there a little early and the place we were ment to meet at, Browns, was quite, I popped over to Colette's to wait there. As we were about to go to Browns, Colette got massaged by some of the others saying Browns was closed. Colette dis not want to believe it until she saw it. After getting there and finding it was close we changed to All-Bar-One. Darren H, Lisa, Jake, Richard, Richy, Jenny and several others turned up for Christmas drinks. I got gifts from both Colette and Jake and I gave Jake his. Sadly I did not get anything for Colette as everybody always say do not get her or Simon anything as they do not have the money to get others stuff. Sadly after one drink the staff of All-Bar-One said that they are going to be close early soon. So we went off to Old Wetherspoon, however Darren H and Lisa called it a night then. A couple of more people turned up there and I got one more drink in before I had to phone home for a left. Day twelve of ClixMas was a Christmas event stuff. The seasonal stuff WizKids does is nice, but they release them a bit too late for venues to use them.

Sunday, Christmas Day, I was off work because it was Christmas and it is the only day in the year the store is not open. After going online quickly to go to Facebook. I went down stairs and me and my parent opened up our gifts. From my parents I got the third Transformers film, Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3, two manga books and some HeroClix figures. From Richard I got three Naruto manga books. Chocolates from Jake and Colette. My dad got a New Tricks DVD box set and a James Bond Blu-Ray box set and my mum got all the Harry Potter DVDs and a Simon's Cat book. I manage to have a little go of Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3. I am so far liking the changes they have done to it and the fact they done a cross over story line was nice. Oh and finally having more than just two Gundam Wing mecha and pilots is fantastic. The DLC stuff I downloaded on Friday was a ton of new missions and five new mecha and pilots from both Gundam 00 and Gundam Unicorn. During the day I updated the DreamClix Dial Designs page, posted an update post about it and at the end of the day I posted a "Watch, Listen and Read" post for the week.

Here is a list of posts that will be posted during the coming week. Please note that things may change due to charges in work or time.

Wednesday the 28th of December 2011: Maybe a "Cosplay Deviants" review post.
Friday the 30th of December 2011: "HeroClix".
New Year's Eve: Maybe a "Cosplay Deviants" review post.
Tuesday 3rd of January 2012: "Neoscream's Life".

You may have notice that two of the standard posts are missing from the above list. The first one being the DreamClix Dial Designs update post, this will be explained in the next HeroClix post. The second being the "Watch, Listen and Read" which will be folding into the Neoscream's Life posts from next week and on. Well until next time, have fun.
