Greetings HeroClix Fans
And welcome back as we preview some more figures from the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series Two set. First up is Forest Wolf!
Forest Wolf begins play taking the fight to your opponent with Charge. Precision Strike will allow him to do at least one damage to any target he hits, as well as ignore Master Mind and Super Senses. Exploit Weakness will make sure any damage reducer is ignored. Toughness will offer him some protection from counter attack.
On click number three, Forest Wolf switches things up a bit as he now has Leap/Climb to give him some freedom of movement. Close Combat Expert will allow him to do a bit more damage with his close combat attacks. Another click in, and he can now attempt to do up to six clicks of damage with Blades/Claws/Fangs for a couple of clicks, while Super Senses will let him try to avoid damage from attacks for the rest of his dial.
Forest Wolf also has a trait that can bring an opposing figure back to haunt your opponent. The Belly of the Wolf makes any opposing figure KO’ed by Forest Wolf be placed on his card. When he is KO’ed, the highest point figure on his card is placed in the square he occupied on its last KO click, and then is healed of 1 click of damage.
Forest Wolf can be played on theme teams using the “Leon Wilson”, Animal, and Earth keywords. At 60 points, Forest Wolf will be a fun close combat figure with an extra little surprise.
Next up the Forest Wolf’s favorite attempted snack choice, Little Red Riding Hood!
At 46 points and 3 clicks of life Little Red Riding Hood is not someone to run straight into the thick of things. However, a couple clicks of Mind Control may allow you to mess with an opposing force’s plan. Those same two clicks having Perplex will help by modifying one combat value by plus or minus 1. Little Red Riding Hood also has the Tiny Size combat ability, giving her + 1 against range combat attacks as well as being able to be carried by a friendly figure of a larger size than her, without affecting their speed value or ability to carry another figure if able.
Little Red Riding Hood also has a defense special power on her opening click called Protect Me!, allowing her to use Mastermind to transfer damage to a character of 75 points or less. Additionally, if that figure is named Forest Hunter, he doesn’t need to be adjacent.
Little Red Riding Hood also has a trait called Summon the Huntsman that says when she is KO’d, all friendly characters that share a keyword with her modify their attack by +1 for the rest of the game. She can be played on theme teams to best use this trait using her keywords “Leon Wilson” and Earth.
Next up is her eventual savior, Forest Hunter!
Forest Hunter can either use his 5 range to stand back and make range combat attacks at your opponent or use Leap/Climb to get in base contact with an opposing figure to get a better defense against close combat attacks with Combat Reflexes. In either case, Range Combat Expert will allow him to modify his attack and damage values by + 1, or one of the values by + 2. Precision Strike will allow him to ignore opposing figures Super Senses and Mastermind, as well as make sure at least one damage is taken. The Sharp Shooter combat ability will let him make range combat attacks while based.
On click three, Forest Hunter switches tactics a bit as he now has a couple of clicks of Incapacitate as he loses both Precision Strike and Range Combat Expert. On click four, he now has Sidestep to give him a movement of 2 as a free action.
Forest Hunter has a trait that can help him against targets that are bigger than he is. Called Hunting the Wolf, this trait allow him to modify has attack value by + 1 when he targets a character with the Animal or Warrior, or that has a point value of 100 or more points.
At 45 points, Forest Hunter can be a solid secondary range attacker who can hold his own in close combat. He can be played in theme using his “Leon Wilson”, Earth, and Warrior keywords.
That’s all we have for now. Be sure to check back as we preview more figures from the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! HeroClix: Series Two set!
