MK HeroClix House Rules

MK HeroClix, the 19th of July, The Green Chaos Group

Welcome to another MK HeroClix post. Sorry for the post being later than normal, due to several things: Change of format, not getting the idea for Sam Witwicky done in time, a new game on my tablet called Galactic Assault and receiving my Marvel Chaos War brick today. First off the HeroClix news for the week. This week there were previews of the White Queen, Emma Frost and two Green Goblins from Marvel HeroClix 10th Anniversary; two Green Lanterns from Marvel HeroClix 10th Anniversary; and Deathstroke and Zatanna from DC Justice League 52. Also a new Player's Guide has be posted up by WizKids. It has the 2012 Rulebook version of all the powers and abilities, the new Improved Sight/Move rules and a ton of new ATA's for Marvel Chaos War. Oh and I forget to state last week that Marvel Chaos War is out now. On personal news I have ordered the LE Iron Man from Marvel Galactic Guardians and both the Iron Man Suitcase a Tank Turret 3D objects from Marvel Chaos War. Oh and if you did not read it above, I received my Marvel Chaos War brick today. I will be listing what I pulled on Friday next week on the final HeroClix Listings post.

The HeroClix game this week was changed at last moment as he has just got his Marvel Chaos War brick. We did a 400 points two boosters sealed event using his boosters. (Returning the figures to his at the end.) I pulled Egghead, Space Phantom, Shadow Council Soldier, Tony Stark, Max Fury, Sharon Carter, Iron Man, Victoria Hand, Ares and Kang. My end team was:

Sharon Carter (022) 45
Iron Man (024) 110
Victoria Hand (033) 40
Ares (034) 199
=394 points and four re-rolls.

I was considering Kang, but decided to go for a Avengers team. On the first round I was up against Darren. He was using an Avengers theme team to who were:

Ant-Man (015) 75
Wasp (016) 75
Wolverine (029) 90
Binary (043) 158
=397 points and four re-rolls.

The new Wolverine is a tough figure for his points. I ended up losing this game. Darren KO'd my whole force while I only KO'd Wasp. Also Adrian won his match against his brother Michael. On the second round I was up against Michael. He was using an Avengers theme team as well who were:

Captain America (001) 60
Ant-Man (026) 43
Wolverine (029) 90
Thor (038) 200
=393 points and four re-rolls.

I was worried about this game at first due to Thor and Wolverine, but Ares showed the what it means to be a God of War, with Victoria's Attack boost and Iron Man's Outwit. I ended up winning this game with only losing Victoria. Also Adrian won his match against Darren. On the third and final round I was up against Adrian. He was using a none theme team who were:

Shadow Council Soldier (009) 32
Genis-Vell (027) 200
Ant-Man and Wasp (053) 168
=400 points and no re-rolls.

Genis-Vell's special Preplex is too nasty ad he normally gets what he wants or something still useful. The Power Comic does not help ever. I managed to KO'd both Shadow Council Soldier and the Ant-Man and Wasp duo, but my hold team was KO'd. Also Darren won his match against Michael. Over all Adrian won the game. Here are the scores. Sorry do not have his score from the game against Darren.

Adrian W 393, W 397, W 394 = 3 wins 1184
Darren W 394, L 200, W 393 = 2 wins 987
Robert L 75, W 393, L 200 = 1 win 668
Michael L 32, L 40 L ? = No wins 72 + ?

Next week SHOULD be (unless something happens again) Batman Begins. 300 points, must have ever a Batman (Characters with names like The Dark Knight or Bruce Wayne are treated as Batman for this) or Ra's al Ghul on you team. You may begin two teams.

Now for this week's DreamClix section. This week I am doing ideas for Oerba Yun Fang from Final Fantasy XII; a Tank bystander token from the Gundam universes; Zaku Abumi from Naruto; and Sam Witwicky from the Transformers live action movies. But first I have designs of Brian J. Mason from Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040; Stocking Anarchy from Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt; KittyStar Tenten from Naruto; and the RX-77 Guncannon from the original Mobile Suit Gundam.

Next is Oerba Yun Fang from Final Fantasy XII. Oerba Yun Fang is a 21-year old l'Cie from Oerba Village on Gran Pulse who is awakened thirteen days prior to the start of the game along with Oerba Dia Vanille. Eight days before the game's start, they inadvertently caused Sazh's son Dajh to be branded a Sanctum l'Cie. After she helped Vanille escape, she began serving as Cid Raines' subordinate in the Cavalry. She eventually meets Snow at Lake Bresha and becomes his partner as part of Cid's plan to find the remaining l'Cie. She later befriends Lightning while fighting off the PSICOM soldiers in Palumpolum. The two meet up with Snow and Hope at Bartholomew's house. After rescuing Sazh and Vanille on board the Palamecia, she and Vanille reunite. On Gran Pulse, despite Vanille's protests, Fang reveals that she was responsible for scarring Cocoon centuries earlier. Despite the party's pleas for Fang to not transform into Ragnarok, Fang eventually transforms and fights Orphan alone, but gets tortured as a result of her failure, only to be saved by Lightning's group. After Orphan's destruction, Fang and Vanille complete their Focus by becoming Ragnarok to save Cocoon from crashing into Gran Pulse. In Final Fantasy XIII-2, Fang and Vanille appear to help Serah escape from the endless dream in the Void Beyond that Caius placed her in. She should have Stealth, Charge, Leap Climb, Improved Sight (Hindering), Furry, Incapacitate, Energy Explosion, Toughness and Combat Reflexes. She should have about six or seven clicks of health and starting Combat Values of Speed 9, Attack 10, Defence 17, Damage 2 or 3 and Range 4 with one target. Her team ability should be the Final Fantasy one and her keywords should be Final Fantasy XIII, l'Cie and Gran Pulse. The next Final Fantasy idea should be Tifa Lockhart from Final Fantasy VII.

Next is a Tank bystander token from the Gundam universes. It should a trait called "Battlefield Ruble", Range Combat Expert, Toughness and Indomitable.
Battlefield Ruble: When Tank is KO'd roll a D6. On a roll of 5 or 6 place Heavy Object token where the tank was.
Its Combat Values should be Speed 5, Attack 9, Defence 15, Damage 1 and Range 8 with one target. The next Gundam UC idea should be the Guntank.

Next is Zaku Abumi from Naruto. Zaku Abumi was a genin-level ninja from Otogakure. He took part in the Chūnin Exams under orders from Orochimaru to kill Sasuke Uchiha. Unlike his team-mates, Zaku's background is briefly shown. The anime shows that he was an orphan that lived on the streets and stole for a living, and was almost always beaten for it. When Orochimaru found him, he told Zaku that he saw a potential in him and offered to help him develop it in exchange for his loyalty, which Zaku accepted. From that day forward he refused to give up, even at the cost of his own life, not knowing that Orochimaru only took him in as a disposable pawn. He should have a trait called "GROUP(Sound Genin)", a special called "Sound Jutsu", Stealth, Incapacitate, Force Blast and an end click Psychic Blast. GROUP is a new mechanic I have designed for sub teams. If a character is adjacent to another character with the a keyword that is in the brackets, they both gain a the bonus from the Trait. (As you may have noticed Tenten's spots the new trait as well.
GROUP(Sound Genin): If Zaku Abumi is adjacent to at least a character with the Sound Genin, both him and all adjacent characters with the Sound Genin keyword gain Stealth.
Sound Jutsu: All attacks from this character deals knockback.
He should have about five or six clicks of health and starting Combat Values of Speed 9, Attack 10, Defence 16, Damage 2 and Range 5 with two targets. His team ability should be the Ninja one and his keywords should be Sound Village and Sound Genin. The next Naruto idea should be a duo figure of Kotetsu Hagane and Izumo Kamizuki.

Next Sam Witwicky from the Transformers live action movies. Samuel James "Sam" Witwicky is a typical adolescent human with an atypical destiny. He quite often ends up in the crossfire in the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. He can seem to be a coward sometimes, but he has the makings of a true leader. When he bought a car, it turned out to be an alien robot. Who knew? Also, his pheromone levels suggest that he wants to mate with Mikaela Banes.  He should have two traits called "LadiesMan217" and "Autobot Partner", a special called "A Fragment Of The All Spark", Stealth and Perplex.
LadiesMan217: When building a force with Sam Witwicky in it, reduced the cost of one Object with the Relic ability by two points.
Autobot Partner: When a friendly character named Bumblebee is adjacent to Sam Witwicky, Sam Witwicky modifies his Defence value by +1 and Bumblebee modifies his Attack value by +1 if not already modified by this ability.
A Fragment Of The All Spark: Give Sam Witwicky a power action. Ever replace a Light Object with a Toaster Bot pod, a Heavy Object with a Soda Machine Bot pog or a Immobile Object with a Drone pod. (Pogs will come at a later date.)
He should have about three or four clicks of health and starting Combat Values of Speed 7, Attack 8, Defence 16, Damage 1 and Range 0. His should not have a team ability and his keywords should be Autobots, NEST and Witwicky Family. The next Transformers Live Action Movies idea should be the pods from Sam Witwicky's ability.

Lastly is the DreamClix Dial Designs page update news. On Sunday I did the second Mobile Suit Gundam AGE update. The two new pilot designs are shown below. There should be at least an update to the page on Sunday. In this update I will be adding Mobile Suit Gundam UC to the DreamClix Dial Designs page.

Well that is it for this week. Until next time, Mecha Up.
