Greetings HeroClix Fans!
Welcome to another preview from the upcoming Fellowship of the Ring HeroClix set. When last we left the Fellowship they were in Isengard and in perilous battle with Saruman. Now they must traverse the Misty Mountains and travel through Gladden Fields to seek refuge at Mirkwood, the home of their traveling companion, Legolas Greenleaf.
Legolas Greenleaf has Improved Movement and ignores elevated terrain; this shows how agile is it for Elves to get around.
“Go For the Weak Points in Their Armor!” is Legolas Greenleaf’s epic action and will allow him to choose up to 1 opposing character per 200 points of the game’s build total. Until your next turn, when a chosen character is dealt damage by a close combat attack, roll a d6; on a result of 2 – 6, the damage dealt can’t be reduced to less than 1.
Legolas Greenleaf has a trait called “Whirlwind of Blades.” When Legolas Greenleaf or an adjacent friendly character KO’s an opposing character with a close combat attack, after actions resolve, Legolas Greenleaf may immediately use Charge as a free action.
This is a different version of Legolas Greenleaf from what we have seen in the past and it really showcases that he is more than just a great bowman but quite handy with the steel as well. Legolas Greenleaf could easily be paired up with a couple of Elven Warriors to take full advantage of his epic action and trait.
Legolas Greenleaf starts out with his top 3 clicks having Charge, Super Senses and Exploit Weakness. His next 3 clicks have Flurry and Combat Reflexes. The Combat Reflexes will help him during close combat attacks by modifying his defensive value by +2 and giving him the ability to ignore knock back.
Legolas Greenleaf has a special attack power called “Thinning the Ranks.” Once per turn, when a target opposing character takes damage from a close combat attack made by Legolas Greenleaf, you may place an action token on the target after the attack resolves. With this special power overlapping with Flurry, Legolas Greenleaf would not only have two attacks in which to deliver damage to his target but if either attack is successful in dealing damage he could then place an action token on the target.
After the use of Combat Reflexes, Legolas Greenleaf switches back to Super Senses and the use of Exploit Weakness, while stilling being able to use “Thinning the Ranks.”
Legolas Greenleaf has an 8-click dial for 125 points with a lot of options. Let us not forget that Legolas Greenleaf still carries his bow and can make ranged attacks against two targets from 6 squares away as long as he has line of fire. He can also use Willpower through the combat ability Indomitable.
Legolas Greenleaf has Elf, Fellowship, Martial Artist, and Warrior as his keywords to build around, if theme building is your thing.
Thanks for reading! Please join us for more upcoming and exciting Fellowship of the Ring HeroClix previews. Until then, Shape Change for the Win!!
