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: Theoden!

Greetings HeroClix fans!

We continue our series of previews for The Two Towers our next Lord of the Rings HeroClix set, which releases on October 30.  To start things off, we visit with Theoden, the king of Rohan who fought against Saruman’s armies at the Battle of Helm’s Deep!

026-Theoden

Theoden comes in at 50 only points, which leaves plenty of room for other attackers and support characters on a 300-point force.  Theoden also has an Epic Ability called Make for Refuge, which can be used once per game.  With Make for Refuge, you may place Theoden and up to 1 friendly character per 150 points of the game’s build total in your starting area.

As the 17th king of Rohan, Theoden begins his dial with a click of Leadership and WillpowerTheoden also has access to a special power called Exiled by the King, which appears on his first three clicks.  Exiled by the King lets Theoden use Force Blast as if he occupied any square within 6 squares and line of fire.  Once Theoden is off his top click, he gains two clicks of Blades/Claws/Fangs and PerplexTheoden also switches from Willpower to Barrier on those same two clicks.

The back half of Theoden’s dial sees him ditch Exiled by the King in favor of Plasticity as he grips his opponents close instead of knocking them back.  Perplex makes way for Close Combat Expert as he attacks with his mighty sword, Herugrim.  Willpower returns for Theoden’s last two clicks.

Theoden’s Make for Refuge Epic Ability makes him a viable option when a retreat to your starting area is necessary.  Theoden also has consistent combat values throughout his dial.  Additionally, Theoden has the Man, Rohirrim, Ruler and Soldier keywords for ease in team building.

To have some fun with Make for Refuge in Golden Age matches, you can pair up Theoden with Leash from DC HeroClix: Teen TitansLeash can use the Capture ability on his first three clicks and he also has the Piece of Me trait, which allows him to choose a character at the start of the game.  That character then modifies its defense by -2 when Leash targets it with the Capture ability.  Once an opposing character has been captured, Theoden can then use Make for Refuge to bring Leash back to your starting area and release the captive character.

Theoden and Leash come to 146 points, which still leaves plenty of room for attackers and support pieces.  Let’s see what you can come up with to bring the point total to 300 points!

Thanks for reading!  Please join us for our next Lord of the Rings HeroClix: The Two Towers when we take a look at what has gathered outside of Helm’s Deep.  Until then, keep your Clix off their KO’s!
