MK HeroClix, the 13th of September, The King of Chaos

Welcome to the new style MK HeroClix post. I have decided to split the DreamClix section away from the MK HeroClix post. The new DreamClix post will be replacing the Cosmic Cosplay post. On weeks when was HeroClix does not happen the MK HeroClix post will be just a HeroClix news post and I might throw is a DreamClix idea to as a post filler.

First off the HeroClix news for this week. This week there were previews of Robin and Nightwing from DC HeroClix 10th Anniversary; Big Barda (last year's fan's choose winner), KGBeast and the Invisible Jet from DC Batman; and Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Wolverine, Cyclops and Iceman from the HeroClix TabApp sets. Also started last Friday (meaning the first round is over or soon will be) is this year's fan's vote. This time it is for a place in a future Marvel set. The first rounders are 3-DMan, Annihilus, Death's Head, Executioner, Ghost Rider (Alejandra Blaze), Hellcat, Ikon, Major Victory, Mangog, Silver Sable, Sleepwalker and Xemnu. I am voting for Deaths Head. He is a character I never thought would have been done due to heavy links to the old Marvel Transformers comics and the old Marvel Doctor Who comics and many links with the rest of the Marvel Universe just like the human character Circuit Breaker who appeared in Secret Wars II before Transformers. So I classed them as none Marvel when doing the Marvel wish list last week. Please oh please do not let them do the sculpt as Deaths Head 3.0, please keep it original version. Oh and both the HeroClix 10th Anniversary sets and the TabApp sets are out in the USA now.

Now the second round of this year's fan's vote is up. The survivors of the first rounders are Deaths Head, Ghost Rider (Alejandra Blaze), Ikon, Mangog, Silver Sable and Sleepwalker. I am voting for Death's Head.

This week's game was 400 points, one figure most have the Deity keyword. I decided to try out Chaos King this week.

Chaos King (051 Marvel Chaos War) 350
Scarlet Witch (006 Marvel Chaos War Fast Forces) 50
=400 points and no re-rolls.

There was no Michael this week so we each took a bye while the other two played. In the first round it was me against Adrian while Darren took the bye. Adrian was using an Avengers team who where:

Iron Man (217 Marvel Supernova) 160 + Stunning Blow (Feat) 10 = 170
Hercules (016 Marvel Secret Invasion) 142
Scarlet Witch (057 Marvel Averages) 35
Black Panther (106 Marvel Universe) 27
=374 points and two re-rolls.

Looking at Chaos King originally I was worried about his starting 10 Attack and 17 Defence plus only one click of 12 Attack for a 350 points character, but I thought it would be nice to see him in play once. He performed much better than I thought he would , and teamed with Scarlett Witch and being very protective of Chaos King made him nasty and he was better than what I thought. In fact he was super nasty and he ripped apart Adrians team. This led to a white wash with me as the winner and Chaos King only taking five clicks of health. In the second round it was me against Darren while Adrian took the bye. He was using a Defenders team who where:

Dr.Strange (028 Marvel Galactic Guardians) 196
Black Knight (031 Marvel Chaos War) 90
Hellcat (039 Marvel Ultimates) 38
Brunnhilde (204 Marvel Sinister) 69
=373 points and two re-rolls.

Again Chaos King ripped apart Darren's team team, but this time without as much help Scarlett Witch and losing less clicks of health. In the third and final round it was Adrian against Darren. For some reason I cannot remember who won, but I guess Darren won the game.

Next week should be Marvel Reboot. 300 points, rookies only, no figure over 100 points and no Captain America as he is still in the ice.

This was under the DreamClix section originally, but I decided to keep the last of the three wise list with the main HeroClix post. This time were are looking at the Other stuff (e.g. Street Fighter, Star Trek, Tolkien). This wil not be a big list, the reason why it was changed from just being Street Fighter. I would like to see Sakura and Ibuki from Street Fighter, a Star Trek: TNG Away Team set, a Klingon Away Team set, a Borg Away Team set and Borg Ship for the Star Trek HeroClix.

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