2015 Marvel HeroClix Convention Exclusives

Today we preview the two 2015 Marvel HeroClix Convention figures available for sale at conventions and special events— starting with the WizKids U.S. Nationals Championship Event at Games & Stuff in Glen Burnie, MD next weekend April 11-12.

First up is the mightiest magician of the Marvel Universe— Doctor Strange!

Marvel HeroClix Convention Exclusive Doctor Strange

On his first click, Doctor Strange’s Cloak of Levitation (Running Shot) gives him the ability to move and make a ranged attack, his Bolts of Balthakk (Penetrating/Psychic Blast) allows his ranged attack to punch through damage-reducing powers on his targets, his Mystical Shield (Super Senses) can help him to avoid attacks and the Orb of Agamotto (Probability Control) will allow him to reroll attacks or force his opponents to reroll their attacks.  Later on in his dial, Doctor Strange becomes a bit more defensive by granting the Shield of Seraphim (Defend) to help protect his allies and the Serum of Seraphim (Support) to heal his allies that have been hurt in battle.

But the Sorcerer Supreme has many more spells that he can conjure up—to represent the depth of Doctor Strange’s mystical skills, this figure comes with a special d20 that will give him access to a variety of powers and special game effects listed on the back of his character card.  Once per turn, Doctor Strange may be given a free action to roll the d20 and depending on the result of the roll, Doctor Strange can use the indicatedpower or ability. With all of the magical tricks available to Doctor Strange, he is the quintessential “Swiss-army knife” for your HeroClix team!

Second up, we travel into deep space for the greatest minds of the Kree Empire—the Supreme Intelligence.

Marvel HeroClix Convention Exclusive Supreme Intelligence

As a being that resides in a containment unit, the playable character dial for the Supreme Intelligence does not have the ability to move (as represented by his 0 Speed value), but this does not limit his psychic abilities. Supreme Intelligence’s Omni-Wave Projector trait allows him to target opponents anywhere on the map with ranged combat attacks—although his damage is reduced if he needs to stretch his psychic powers outside of his normal range and line of fire.  Opponents can prevent the Supreme Intelligence’s ability to make these mental attacks from afar by moving one of their characters of 100 points or more next to him—but being In the Presence of the Supreme Intelligence can be just as much of a danger, as opposing characters adjacent to the Supreme Intelligence are given an action token at the beginning of his turn. As a master of planning and strategy, the Supreme Intelligence bolsters his forces through his Empower Kree Agents power, increasing their combat values through Empower, Enhancement and Perplex.  As the collection of its greatest minds and leader of the Kree Empire, the Supreme Intelligence’s Millenia of the Kree’s Best, Distilled damage power allows him to use Leadership and Outwit—and when he does use Outwit, he can immediately use it twice more!

Marvel HeroClix Convention Exclusive Supreme Intelligence Resource

Supreme Intelligence is a SwitchClix figure that comes with an alternate dial that allows it to be played as a resource (representing its ability to establish a mental link with other beings to guide their actions).  When the Supreme Intelligence is played as a resource, it is assigned to a character of 50 pointsor more—or a character of any point value if it has the Kree keyword. The character that is assigned this mental link will have access to any of the standard powers showing on the Supreme Intelligence’s dial. The resource dial is clicked once at the end of each turn and up to two additional times if the assigned character made a successful attack during that turn, so the powers available will change throughout the course of the game.  If you are fortunate enough to get the resource dial up to click 19, the Supreme Intelligence transfers his powers entirely over to your Kree agent with its Manifest Through You special power. This power allows you to replace the assigned character with the Supreme Intelligence character dial on the same click number.  Now we will see who is truly the Supreme Intelligence!

We look forward to seeing you this convention season!  Pre-registration for the WizKids U.S. Nationals Championship Event closes soon, so register now for your chance to play and your chance to pick up two of the 2015 Marvel HeroClix Convention Exclusives: Doctor Strange and Supreme Intelligence!

On The Road: 2012 HeroClix Nationals Result

June 13-15 saw HeroClix players from around the country gather at Origins Game Fair to participate in the 2013 US Nationals. The winner will pre-qualify for August’s 2013 World Championship being held at GenCon later this year.

While it was no surprise to see the Justice League taking up 2 seats out of the top 8, with 4 teams sporting the Heroes for Hire Additional Team Ability, it looked to be a fascinating event right from the get-go.

The strategy of the Justice League team is brute force to the nth degree. Using the new Team Base mechanic, forces are able to gain board position and attack with ease. For weeks prior to this event, you’d think that it was so strong, that nothing could beat it. Well, Ross Yudis and his Heroes for Hire team demonstrated that the same first-strike capability could be achieved with a more diverse team and though he lost one game during the Swiss portion of the day, went on to win the day, defeating the very same player who had given him a loss earlier in the day.

The Heroes for Hire team is very effective against the Justice League and, in fact, is very effective against many forces, especially those that sink most of its points into a primary attacker and use what’s leftover for support of that piece. That’s because, with the HfH ATA, you can essentially give a single character 2 actions in a single turn. Mind you, it’s not a trick you can pull off often – Ross’s team only had one HfH character on it, so it was something he could only do once – but as long as you are executing that action judiciously, you will see tremendous results.

The question now becomes what will dominate at GenCon. There are only a handful of Modern Age figures that will be legal that have not been released yet, so you can expect that your opponents are all looking at the meta game. Teams with one primary attacker have always had a glass jaw and now there’s a one-two punch that can address. Will that be the team to beat? Will JLA still be the most common team played? Or is there a team being played by one of you, hidden from the rest, that will come out and shine?

HeroClix On the Road 2012 – Apocalypse

Greetings WizKids Fans and Supporters!

Survive, that’s always the goal of another convention season because of the long days and nights.  There is always so much to do during a convention between the show floor and hanging out with friends after hours.  Or is your goal to survive the tourneys and become the HeroClix National Champion at Origins Game Fair?  Our premiere 2012 HeroClix convention preview begins with the first mutant who believes in the tenet of survival of the fittest and is none other than Apocalypse.

En Sabah Nur (as Apocalypse is otherwise known) has survived for over 5000 years by sometimes hiding in the shadows as represented by his Centuries of Waiting power (Stealth).  During this time, he has changed the course of history by plotting and scheming to get his desired outcome.  By using his Manipulate Hundreds of Generations special power, you can change the course of battle by outwitting an opponent’s defense and then making sure your attacks hit home by perplexing up your attack value.  If Apocalypse’s schemes fail him, he can Mass Increase and turn into a Colossal figure to crush any who would defy him!  Of course, Apocalypse also brings with him his Horsemen of Apocalypse and you can too if you team him with Famine, Pestilence, and War from last convention season.  Pair these figures up with the Horseman of Apocalypse ATA and regardless of how many of the Horsemen fall to your opponents, you still get your attack bonus.

Origins Game Fair is the first convention that this figure will be available at as a prize but don’t worry this figure will also be available at Gen Con Indy.  With Apocalypse by your side, will you be the next HeroClix National Champion?  Or will fate be against you?  Tune in next week for another exciting preview!

For questions on any of the conventions, please email: HeroClixConventions@gmail.com
