Greetings HeroClix fans!
Today’s Lord of the Rings HeroClix: The Two Towers preview begins with Aragorn. Let’s take a look at this Ranger who protects others from danger!
At a lean 84 points, Aragorn brings a lot to the table. He possesses Improved Movement ignores hindering terrain, Indomitable, and a 6 range with a single target. He also has the epic action Tracking Friends that allows you to give Aragorn an epic action and choose up to one adjacent friendly character for each 200 points of the games build total. Place Aragorn adjacent to any friendly character within 10 squares and then place the chosen friendly characters adjacent to Aragorn. This is a great way to get your characters quickly into action.
Aragorn starts his dial with Charge, Toughness, and the special attack power Leader of Men that allows Aragorn to use Leadership and adjacent characters can use Willpower. Aragorn can use Perplex, but only to modify the attack powers of friendly characters.
On his second click he trades Toughness with Combat Reflexes, which he keeps for the rest of his dial. He also acquires Outwit for the next 3 clicks. This is a great click that really lets Aragorn show his worth. You can declare his epic action Tracking Friends, place him adjacent to a character up to 10 squares away, and then place the chosen friendly characters adjacent to Aragorn. He can then use his Outwit on an opposing character, and then use his Perplex granted by Leader of Men to enhance an adjacent friendly characters attack value. Then start attacking!
On Aragorn’s third click, he swaps out his special power for Blades/Claws/Fangs that goes well with his Charge and Outwit as well. On click 4 he loses Charge but his 6 range will help keep him in the fray. Try a team with multiple #013 Elven Archers from the Lord of the Rings HeroClix: The Fellowship of the Ring set. The Elven Archers can use Enhancement and ignore each other for line of fire to bring along for Aragorn’s epic action.
