MK HeroClix: 19th September 2013 - Fantastic Skrull Flop

Welcome to the last ever MK HeroClix post. This use to be a weekly post with HeroClix news and results of Thursday's HeroClix game at MK Wargames Society at York House. However, due to a college course I am starting next week, this was the last week I will be playing HeroClix this year (well maybe at Christmas time if there is a Christmas break from the course). The HeroClix news will be moved to a new gaming post “Gaming with Neoscream” that will replace this post.

This week there was previews of I.K.S. Toral from Star Trek Tactics III; Xandressan Windsman and Gassalite Swordbrother from Mage Knight Resurrection; Blue Eyes White Dragon, Dark Magician, Feral Imp and Des Feral Imp from the Yu-Gi-Oh Series One starter set; and the Batmobile from DC Batman Classic TV. With Yu-Gi-Oh the starter will be release in December and then the Series One will be released in February 2014.

This week was the last game for me for a while. It was 500 point, half the force must be from Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men, three actions. I went for a classic X-Men line up who were:

Wolverine (001 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 100
Colossus (002 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 100
Cyclops (016 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 94
Longshot (009 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 75
Jean Grey (017 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 40
Shadowcat (204 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 70
Iceman (037 Marvel Xplosion) 26
=505 points and four re-rolls.

On the first round I was up against Adrian. He was using a non themed X-Men and Brotherhood team who were:

Kid Omega
Professor X and Magneto (053 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 133
Dazzler (008 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 75
Longshot (009 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 75
Lady Deathstrike (030 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 75
Mystique (028 Marvel Xplosion) 34
Polaris (025 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 94
=487 points and no re-rolls.

I managed to take out Lady Deathstrike and Polaris, but sadly I lost this game.  Also Darren won his game against Michael. On the second round I was up against Michael. He was using an X-Men themed team who were:

Cyclops (016 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 94
Kid Omega (028 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 128
Sunspot (018 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 76
Colossus (029 Marvel Fear Itself) 200
=498 points and four re-rolls.

The Fear Itself Colossus is a monster, double charge, Indomitable, Impervious and Shape Change.  I ended up losing.  Also Darren won his game against Adrian. On the third and final round I was up against Darren.  He was using a New Mutants themed team who were:

New Mutants
Shatterstar (010 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 73 + New Mutants (ATA) 4 = 77
Rictor (014 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 58 + New Mutants (ATA) 4 = 62
Sunspot (018 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 76 + New Mutants (ATA) 4 = 80
Magik (034 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 102 + New Mutants (ATA) 4 = 106
Warlock (046 Marvel Wolverine and the X-Men) 164 + New Mutants (ATA) 4 = 168
=493 points and four re-rolls.

Darren white washed me. New Mutants might be weak in the comics, but in HeroClix they are nasty. Also Michael won his game against his brother Adrian. Three loses. A very crap last session of HeroClix.

Well that is it for HeroClix for me this year (I might be able to get a game at Christmas time. The guys are planning to meet up on the last Thursday of each month while I am away with my course. I should be back by February 2014 where things might be going back to normal, but when it does the write ups will be in the new “Gaming with Neoscream” post when I get back to them.


Until next time, Armour Up.
