Mage Knight: Resurrection Preview

Mage Knight HeroClix Resurrection: Altem Sentinel and Wolfhawk!

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

We travel to a far a distant place, a place of magic and wonder. We sneak a peek at the WizKids HeroClix: Mage Knight Resurrection set. Today we look at two members with the Phoenix Concord team ability.

What does the Phoenix Concord team ability do? Well, once per turn when a power or ability of a character using this team ability or an adjacent friendly character would be countered, roll a d6, on a result of 5 – 6, the power or ability is not countered.

005-Altem-Sentinel

First up is Altem Sentinel at just 50 points. The Altem Sentinel has a trait called I Undertake A Duty To Defend The Guild. This will allow Altem Sentinel to deal 1 damage to any character that fails to break away from him. With Plasticity down his entire dial, this will make for a nasty combination.

Altem Sentinel has a 6 click dial with 3 clicks of Toughness followed by 3 clicks of Willpower. On clicks 3 and 4 he is also able to use Exploit Weakness.

Altem Sentinel has a 2 range and the Armor, Atlantean and Soldier keywords.

Next we look at Wolfhawk. She has an epic action called Wolf’s Taunt that allows Wolfhawk to use Incapacitate as a free action once for each 150 points of the game’s build total, as if she had a range value of 8.

020-Wolfhawk

Wolfhawk’s trait is called Beastbond and at the beginning of your turn, choose one standard power or combat ability possessed by a character on the map with the Animal, Monster, or Mystical keyword; Wolfhawk can use the chosen power or combat ability until your next turn.

Wolfhawk starts off with a special power called On My Own. This will allow her to use Perplex; when she is not adjacent to a friendly character and uses Perplex, Wolfhawk can modify a target opposing character’s combat value by -2. The rest of her starting dial has Leap/Climb, Blades/Claws/Fangs, and Super Senses.

On click 2 Wolfhawk’s defense switches to Toughness and she can now use Shape Change. On click 3 she gains the use of Flurry. On click 5 she regains the use of Blades/Claws/Fangs and can still use Flurry for a deadly combination. Wolfhawk ends her dial with 3 clicks of Battle Fury.

With having the Indomitable combat ability Wolfhawk is 150 points of female fury. Her keywords are Amazon, Mage Knight, Solonavi, and Warrior. Wolfhawk would be fun to play alongside other HeroClix: Mage Knight Resurrection characters or in Gold Age game and join forces with other Amazons.

Thanks for reading and although that is all for today, but be sure to continue to come back for more exciting and upcoming figures from the WizKids HeroClix: Mage Knight Resurrection set. Until then, Shape Change for the Win!!
