First off the HeroClix news for this week. This week there were previews of Maul, Booster Gold, Catwoman, Two-Face, Batgirl and Hired Goon from DC Batman; and Blue Beetle from DC Streets of Gotham.
This week was 500 points, Marvel only, pick a colour that no one else has. You gain an Infinity Gem based on that colour. I am Gold/Yellow so I have the Reality Gem, Adrian is Green so he has the Soul Gem, Michael is Red so he has the Power Gem and Darren is Purple so he has Space Gem. If you cannot guess I went for an Iron Man team who were:
|A picture of the shooting of Iron Man 3! OMG!|
3 x Iron Man Drones (002 Marvel Chaos War) 70 x 3 = 210
Iron Man Drones (002 Marvel Chaos War) 30
Spider-Man (051 Marvel Avengers) 111
=501 points and two re-rolls.
In the first round I was up against Adrian. He was using a Avengers team who where:
Vision (013 Marvel Chaos War) 95
Hulk (001 Marvel Incredible Hulk) 165
Iron Fist (004 Marvel Secret Invasion) 70
Hercules (016 Marvel Secret Invasion) 142 + Soul Gem
=472 points and four re-rolls.
At first this was a tough battle, but when Iron Man rolled a 6 on his regeneration roll things changed and I ended up winning the game. Also Darren won his game with Michael. In the second round I was up against Darren. He was using a Thunderbolts team who were:
Baron Zemo (041 Marvel Chaos War) 100 + Thunderbolts (ATA) 8 = 108
Bullseye (042 Marvel Web of Spider-Man) 117 + Thunderbolts (ATA) 8 = 125 + Space Gem
Tiger Shark (134 Marvel Incredible Hulk) 134 + Thunderbolts (ATA) 8 = 142
=495 points and four re-rolls.
Darren Thunderbolted to Mystics and like normal I lost the game, but I did take out Green Goblin. Also Adrian won his game against Michael. On the fourth and final round I was up against Michael. He was using a non themed team who were:
Iron Man (021 Marvel Secret Invasion) 188
Captain Mar-Vell (042 human Marvel Secret Invasion) 185 + Power Gem
Elektra (048 human Marvel Secret Invasion) 80
Scarlet Witch (052 Marvel Fantastic Forces) 35
=488 points and no re-rolls.
As Adrian will not be at HeroClix next week, next week's game will be there a 1,200 point three way battle. No Colossals.
Until next time, Mecha Up.
