Greetings HeroClix Fans!
This May, Wizkids and Esdevium Games will bring competitive HeroClix back to the UK!
“We wanted to do something really special to mark the return of official competitive HeroClix” said European Organized Play Coordinator Tom Pike, “What could be better than hosting the debut of the 2014 convention season? This is the first chance anyone in the world will have to win figures like Hulk & Red She-Hulk and Doop, or to buy the new con-exclusives like the fabulous Black Lantern Anti-Monitor. We also have a few surprises to announce, but you’ll have to wait until closer to the event.”
The official UK Heroclix National Championship is part of a series of events taking place across Europe this summer, culminating at Essen Spiel in October when the top players from each participating nation will face-off for a chance to claim the European HeroClix crown.
Players can qualify for the June 1st, 300-point Modern Constructed UK final in one of two ways – by winning an in-store qualifier at their local retailer in the preceding months, or at the Sealed Open Qualifier on Saturday May 31st at UK Games Expo, where at least eight places in the final 32 will be up for grabs.
Tom Pike added, “There will be participation prizes for everyone who takes part, and the top prizes are…unprecedented.”
UK Games Expo takes place at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, B40 1PP, United Kingdom on May 31st and June 1st 2014.
Doors open at 9.30am. HeroClix events start at 10am. Look for more news soon and in the meantime, click here to go to the UK Games Expo events booking system.
