Captain America Heroclix Preview

Captain … Russia?!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Today we continue our visit to the Russian homeland of the Winter Guard.  Our preview is none other than the proud son of the Motherland, champion of the Russian people, and communist equivalent of our very own Captain America, the Red Guardian!

As a Rookie and at only 47 points, the Red Guardian is a potent addition to your force! Ever-willing to lead his comrades into battle, Red Guardian begins his dial with Charge as he manuevers himself onto the battlefield.  Familiar with commanding from the front lines, the Red Guardian also possesses Leadership on his first click.

While many of his Winter Guard peers won’t benefit fully from Red Guardian’s Leadership, we cannot forget that he is the champion of the people and generic soldier-types will work well with the Guardian. and can take full advantage of his Leadership.

Toughness protects the Red Guardian from some damage on his first click, and after he relies more on his shield as he picks up Energy Shield/Deflection.

Mid- to late-dial, Red Guardian exchanges Charge for battlefield mobility as he gains Leap/Climb.  He also picks up Combat Reflexes in place of Energy Shield/Deflection as he engages the enemy and ties them up.  The Red Guardian then utilizes his melee skills to strike his opponents’ weak points with Exploit Weakness!

That’s all we have for today, but be sure to join us later in the week as we spotlight another Soviet super soldier who’s armored might has long served the Russian people.  Until then, keep on clixing!
