Lord of the Rings HeroClix The Two Towers: Eowyn and Eomer!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Welcome travelers, we go today in to Middle-Earth to preview those from the upcoming The Two Towers HeroClix set. Eomer and Eowyn are the children of Theodwyn and were adopted by Theoden, king of the Rohirrim, after the tragic death of their parents.

 020-Eowyn

Eowyn has a trait called Simbelmyne. This will allow Eowyn to once per turn, when a friendly character is KO’d, she may place a hindering terrain marker in the square it occupied before being removed from the map.

Eowyn has a 5 click dial for 40 points starting with 2 clicks of Charge and ending with 2 clicks of Flurry. For her defense she has 3 clicks of Combat Reflexes and ends with 2 clicks of Willpower.

Eowyn has a special power called Providing Comfort. Eowyn can use Support; when she does you may treat any roll of doubles (other than a critical miss) as a result higher than the target’s defense value, but when you do she can heal a maximum of 2 damage.

021-Eomer

Eomer, Eowyn’s brother, has a 6 click dial for 68 points. His trait called Rider of Rohan, allows Eomer to use the Carry ability.

Eomer starts out with 4 clicks of Charge and Toughness all the way down his dial.

Eomer’s special power is called Marshall of the Horse-Lords. Eomer and adjacent friendly characters modify their attack value by +1 when making a close combat attack. If that character has moved this turn, modify its damage value by +1 for this attack as well.

Eowyn and Eomer share 3 of the same keywords with Man, Rohirrim and Soldier. Eowyn also has Ruler.

Thanks for reading! We will continue to bring you figures from the upcoming The Two Towers HeroClix set. Until then, Shape Change for the Win!!

Lord of the Rings HeroClix The Two Towers: Galadhrim Elven Soldier and Haldir!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

For today’s Lord of the Rings HeroClix: The Two Towers preview, we bring word from Lord Elrond of Rivendell.  An alliance once existed between Elves and Men. Long ago they fought and died together.  When Saruman’s forces marched upon Helm’s Deep, Haldir and a number of Galadhrim Elven Soldiers arrived to honor that allegiance and fight alongside men once again!

002-Galadhrim-Elven-Soldier

Let’s first take a look at the Galadhrim Elven Soldier!  Coming in at 32 points, the Galadhrim Elven Soldier has a range of six squares and can target one character with its ranged attacks.  On each of its four clicks Galadhrim Elven Soldier has a special power in its defense slot called Hold the Line.  This special power lets Galadhrim Elven Soldier use Energy Shield/Deflection.  Additionally, Galadhrim Elven Soldier modifies its defense by +1 when he is targeted with a close action and is adjacent to a friendly character with a shared keyword.  Galadhrim Elven Soldier has two keywords, Elf and Soldier.

The Galadhrim Elven Soldier is primarily a ranged attacker on his first two clicks, with Leap/Climb in his speed slot enabling him to get into position for an attack and Ranged Combat Expert in his damage slot boosting either his damage or attack values (or both values).  On his last two clicks, Galadhrim Elven Soldier drops Leap/Climb in favor of Flurry as he fights in close combat.

Leading the Galadhrim Elven Soldier into battle is Haldir, who comes into play at 60 and has the Elf and Soldier keywords.

025-Haldir

Haldir also has an Epic Ability called Eleven Archery.  Once per game, Haldir can be given an epic action to choose up to 1 friendly character per 200 points of the game’s build total.  Then during your turn you may give each chosen character a power action to make two ranged combat attacks as free actions.  If Haldir is one of the chosen characters, his power action may be given as a free action.

Haldir has Leap/Climb on all but his last two clicks which allows him to move as needed among his troops.  Haldir also has a special power in his attack slot called Target Their Armor’s Weak Points! that appears on all but his last click.

When Haldir is on the front half of his dial, he has Defend to share his defense values with adjacent friendly characters.  Haldir also has Enhancement to increase damage dealt by adjacent friendly characters who make ranged attacks.  The back half of Haldir’s dial features WillpowerHaldir also has a range of eight squares and one target for his ranged attacks.
