Greetings HeroClix Fans!
We’re fired up to show you a new character today from the deck of Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One set coming to a retailer near you next month. Today’s preview character is Firewing Pegasus, let’s see if he can “stirrup” emotions!
Firewing Pegasus has two different point values, 120 points and 85 points. At 120 points he gets 2 extra clicks of life. He starts his top 3 clicks with Hypersonic Speed, Invulnerability, and the special power Burning Trail that says when Firewing Pegasus moves due to its own action, after actions resolve it can use Smoke Cloud as a free action, but when it does, it may only place terrain markers in squares it moved through. This can be great to prevent characters that don’t ignore hindering terrain from trotting off.
On click four Firewing Pegasus gains Charge, Poison, and Toughness. With 3 damage all the way down his dial, your opponent will feel as if he’s been rode hard and put up wet. Firewing Pegasus also has the flight symbol, so using Charge while carrying a character with Outwit will allow Poison to bite through defenses and make your opponent whinny. Toughness will make sure this pony stays in the race!
Firewing Pegasus has the keywords Animal and Fire and with the Animal keyword you should easily be able to create a theme team. Try using the Animal ATA at 4 points per character that says at the beginning of your turn, roll a d6. On a result of 5-6 all friendly characters using this team ability ignore Shape Change and Stealth this turn.
It’s time for us to stop horsing around “bale” out on this preview but be ready for next week’s Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series One set preview, you will definitely want to make time for it.
