Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Today’s preview is a double dose of skilled and deadly combatants. We begin our article with the Gorgon!
At 106 points, Gorgon adds a potent close-combat element to your force; early-dial Charge allows him to rush in against his target while his Godkiller special power grants the use of Blades/Claws/Fangs. And should the target of Gorgon’s B/C/F attack possess the Deity or Mystical keyword(s), Gorgon can re-roll his damage roll once!
Gorgon’s ability to endure pain is represented by Toughness, which he trades for Combat Reflexes mid-dial where Gorgon also gains Mind Control (to represent his telepathic powers) as well as standard Blades/Claws/Fangs.
Towards the end of his dial, Gorgon again demonstrates his resiliency with Regeneration, which allows him to get almost back to full health potentially, while Flurry demonstrates his expertise with the blade.
Gorgon’s telepathic genius is further represented by his early- and end-dial Outwit while the Hydra team ability allows him to assist with friendly ranged attacks by lowering the defense of his foes.
Lastly, Gorgon’s Stone Gaze special power grants the use of Energy Explosion and should any of the hit targets be less than 100 points, they get an action token for their trouble as they’re frozen in place!
Gorgon is a very dangerous foe and as one of the many heads of Hydra, not to be underestimated. However, his fearsomeness is matched by none other than the God of Fear himself, Phobos!
Phobos is the son of Ares, the Greek God of War, and his pedigree shines true here! At only 59 points, Phobos is a formidable opponent and his dial begins with both Charge and Blades/Claws/Fangs which he uses to gain ground on his foes and cut them down! And while his famous blade, Grasscutter, may be absent from his lore, it is firmly strapped to his back as Phobos chooses instead to wield his father’s axe in battle.
Early-dial, Phobos gives up Charge to gain his God of Fear special power which allows him to use Force Blast. However, on a result of 4-6 the targetted figure joins your force for an action as they will do anything to escape the Phobos’ gaze!
Toughness helps protect Phobos from damage and end-dial Regeneration can potentially land him back on his starting click. Phobos also displays his precognitive powers with late-dial Probability Control while Close Combat Expert guarantees he’s no pushover, even on his last click!
We hope you’ve enjoyed this article as much as we! Be sure to join us again soon as we check in with more of Phobos’ secret allies! Until then, keep on clixing!
