Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Welcome to another preview from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Teen Titans set. Today we are going to get tested by Warblade!
Warblade possesses a trait called Shifting Body which lets him use Plasticity and Shape Change. When he uses Shape Change, he only succeeds on a result of 6. This makes him a big problem for adjacent opposing characters. Warblade also has an Improved Movement ability to help him get next to his opponents called You Won’t Get Away which allows Warblade to ignore elevated terrain, hindering terrain, and other characters when he moves.
Warblade’s dial starts out with a speed of 10 with Charge and an attack of 11 with Blades/Claws/Fangs. This mix of powers allows him to Charge up to five squares to slice-and-dice his enemies. Warblade also starts out with defense of 17 and Invulnerability. In his damage slot, Warblade has a special power called Grinning Mask which allows him to use Perplex. Warblade can either use it normally or use it to modify an opposing character’s defense by -2.
After his first click, Warblade gains Flurry and Toughness but keeps Blades/Claws/Fangs, allowing him slice up an opponent twice. Mid-dial, Warblade regains Charge but Blades/Claws/Fangs changes into Poison allowing him to possibly do an extra click of damage.
Warblade then gets Leap/Climb, Exploit Weakness, and a special power in his damage slot. This power is called Always Around, which lets him use Combat Reflexes and Regeneration. On his last click Warblade gets Stealth as well, to help him hide from ranged combat fighters as he heals. Warblade also has Indomitable so he can use all these awesome powers two turns in a row.
Warblade comes in at 151 points of terror and has the Calculator team ability. You will find Warblade a formidable ally on any Assassin, N.O.W.H.E.R.E., or Soldier teams.
