Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron- Ultron Week

Greetings organic children of the planet Earth!

You have survived another day in the Age of Ultron, congratulations to you. You will now be shown another supreme incarnation of Ultron from the Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline Organized Play event coming to a game store near you. Today’s preview is from the period of Annihilation when Ultron took control of the Phalanx.

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Ultron Phalanx

Ultron (Phalanx) was a floating consciousness drawn to the Babel Spire on a world conquered by the Phalanx. Ultron, having the superior force of will, took control of the Phalanx and they embraced him as a father figure they desired.

Ultron (Phalanx) 055a has a 10 click deep dial, a range of 8 with 2 targets and the Power Cosmic team ability. His Improved Targeting: ignores elevated terrain works well with his top 3 clicks of Penetrating/Psychic Blast. His 3 clicks of Phasing/Teleport will let him get where he needs to be to launch an attack behind the elevated terrain he ignores. His top click of Invincible and a 19 defense will keep all enemies looking for an easier target as well.

On click 4 Ultron now has Charge, Steal Energy, Invincible, and Outwit. Soften your opponent with Outwit then steal their life force and heal up Ultron with it as he continues to remove all obstacles in his path. Click 7 and 8 are identical, he retains charge but now he has regained his 19 defense along with Impervious and 2 special powers. His attack special power Cybernetic Impact allows Ultron to use Quake. When he does, his damage value becomes a locked value of 3 and all squares within 3 squares are considered adjacent. Make sure to remember to apply the knockback to hit characters.

His damage special power is called Of Course… He Has a Giant Killer Robot Mode. It states Ultron has the Colossal damage symbol. When this click is revealed while taking damage stop turning the dial. This power can’t be ignored. Ultron’s combat values are truly matchless on the 2 clicks. His 5 movement is a little low, but his 13 attack, 19 defense, and 6 damage will have the organic beings’ knees quaking. His last 2 clicks end with Phasing/Teleport, Penetrating/Psychic Blast, Regeneration, and Outwit.

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Ultron Phalanx

Ultron (Phalanx) 055b has the same traits that previous drones possess. Autonomous or Drone Mode and Basic Programming. The point values are 30 and 120 points for Autonomous or Drone. He has a 6 range single target and Improved Targeting: ignores elevated terrain. His first click starts just like all previous drones as well, Sidestep and Invulnerability.

Ultron’s 2nd and 3rd clicks have Pulse Wave, Invincible, Enhancement, and the special movement power Teleport Flare and it states Ultron can use Phasing/Teleport. When he uses Phasing/Teleport, he may use the Carry ability to carry up to 4 characters with the robot keyword and doesn’t modify his speed value. So take your Ultron army across the map with the 30 point or 120 point version and be ready to release your foe from their mortal coil.

Clicks 4 through 6 see a change to close combat with Blades/Claws/Fangs, Impervious, and Empower which need no explanation of what to do other than defeat your enemy. Finally on his last 2 clicks, Ultron has Mind Control and Regeneration. His damage value never falls below a 3 for his entire dial and his attack falls below a 10 on his last click. With both Ultron’s possessing the keywords Cosmic, Robot, Ruler, and Soldier, it will be easy to build a theme team, especially with a few 30 point versions of Ultron on your team.

Your presence at this preview, while required, is appreciated and will be noted in our logging platform routines. We will bring you another preview, should you survive until our next maintenance cycle, from the Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline Organized Play event.

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron- Ultron Week

Greetings Human HeroClix Fans!

We are continuing Ultron Week with more previews showcasing the superiority of Ultron from the Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline Organized Play event. You have seen Ultron at his birth, and we continue to show you his evolution into the perfect being devoid of human flesh and weakness, and now we present to you Ultron-7 and Ultron-8!

Maximus of the Inhumans recovered the head of Ultron-6 to rebuild him into Ultron-7. They hid his identity and named him Omega to help in his ultimate plan to overthrow his elder brother, Black Bolt.

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Ultron-7

Ultron-7 is 150 points, has a single target 8 range, the Indomitable and Giant size combat symbols. Ultron-7’s damage never dips below a 3 and he keeps a consistent 11 attack for his entire dial! His top 3 clicks are identical except for a slight decrease in defense on click 3. Charge, Super Strength, Impervious, and the special damage power Hatred of the Horde that allows Ultron-7 to use Battle Fury and Leadership. Opposing characters that are adjacent to a character friendly to your force can’t use Outwit, Perplex, or Probability Control.

Mid dial Ultron-7 changes his tactics to ranged combat so he doesn’t have to come into contact with biological inferiors. Running Shot, Invulnerability, Perplex, and the attack special power Dissolve Your Pathetic Brains from Within! which allows Ultron-7 to use Pulse Wave. When he does, after actions resolve, place an Impairment token on the character card of each hit character that doesn’t have the Robot keyword. Opposing characters reduce their speed, attack, and range values by -1 for each Impairment token on their card as long as Ultron-7 is on the map, even if this power is lost.

End dial Ultron-7 has Sidestep, Super Senses, and Close Combat Expert. With his Giant size combat ability, he can attack from 2 squares away while adding his modifiers from Close Combat Expert.

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Ultron-7 Drone

The Ultron 7 (Drone) is there to deal with the unpleasant task of dispatching the frail bags of flesh called humans. This is another Ultron with the Autonomous or Drone Mode trait and the point costs of this one is 125 or 30 points. He has the Basic Programming trait as well that states when Ultron-7 has no action tokens, its actions don’t count against your action total. When Ultron-7 begins or ends a non-free action adjacent to a friendly character whose name includes Ultron, it can use Willpower that action.

Just like all previous Ultron Drones, this one starts its top click with an 8 movement with Sidestep, a 10 attack, a 17 defense with Invulnerability, and 3 damage. At both point costs his 2 click is identical as well. Running Shot, Incapacitate, and Impervious. With his 6 range single target and Giant size symbol, he’ll move easily through the human chaff destroying all in his wake.

On the 125 point Ultron-7 (Drone’s) click 3, he gains 2 special powers. His attack special power, Immobilization Ray, allows Ultron-7 to use Incapacitate with 3 targets. When he does and hits, characters with zero action tokens get 2 action tokens instead of 1. His damage special power, Alpha Primitives, Attack!, says that Ultron-7 can use Empower, Enhancement, and Leadership as if he were 200 points.

Click 5 he changes to Charge, Super Strength, and Toughness and ends his dial with Sidestep, Incapacitate, and Super Senses. Both Ultron-7 and Ultron-7 (Drone) have the keywords Inhumans and Robot.

Next up is Ultron-8, the robot that wanted his own robot bride so he created Jocasta whose brain patterns on those of Janet Van Dyne, the Wasp.

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Ultron-8

Ultron-8 also has the Autonomous or Drone Mode trait with point costs of 120 or 30 points. And the Basic Programming trait as well. Click 2 starts out dangerously for the frail biological entities known as humans. Running Shot, Penetrating/Psychic Blast, and Invulnerability with an 11 attack and 4 damage will make Ultron’s foes quiver in fear. His Outwit on clicks 3 and 4 will remove any imaginary advantages these humans think they possess.

On click 4 Ultron gains Sidestep and Steal Energy. His last 3 clicks have Stealth and his last 2 have Regeneration and those allow him to go into the shadows and grow strong again to regroup for another battle.

Your participation in today’s preview is noted and will be taken into account when it comes time for your termination from existence. Until then you will be allowed to continue your lowly existence for my next incarnation preview from the Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline Organized Play.

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron- Ultron Week

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Welcome back to Ultron Week human. Here you will see another preview of the human races demise from the Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline Organized Play. Today’s preview is the far superior Ultron-5, let me tell you my master plan before you are vaporized!

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Ultron-5

Ultron-5 is 120 points and has 8 clicks of life. His Indomitable keeps him from taking pushing damage and his Masters of Evil team ability allows him to keep going strong in the battle. His 6 range keeps him at an arm’s reach out of the enemy’s grasp.

Ultron-5’s dial starts with 2 identical clicks. Stealth, Invulnerability, and 2 special powers. His special attack power, Knockout Gas Gun allows Ultron-5 to use Smoke Cloud and when the markers are removed, he deal each opposing character occupying a square with one of these markers 1 damage and give them an action token.

His special damage power, Organizer of the Masters of Evil, states Ultron-5 can use Leadership. When he uses Leadership, friendly characters with the Masters of Evil keyword are considered to be fewer points than Ultron-5 and he may place a friendly character within 8 squares and the Masters of Evil keyword adjacent to him before rolling the d6.

Ultron-5 on click 3 swaps Invulnerability for Toughness for the rest of his dial. Click 5 Ultron-5 adapts to the battle and changes his strategy. He gains Incapacitate, Exploit Weakness, and the movement special power The Crimson Cowl is… Jarvis? It allows Ultron-5 to use Shape Change and he modifies his result by +1 for each adjacent opposing character, to a maximum of +2.

The technologically advanced Ultron-5 (Drone) has the same traits as the previous previewed (Drone). Autonomous or Drone Mode allowing him to be used at 30 or 60 points and Basic Programming which allows him to use Willpower when adjacent to another character with Ultron in its name.

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Ultron-5 Drone

At all costs, Ultron-5 (Drone) has a single target 6 range and identical top 2 clicks. The top click has Sidestep and Invulnerability. His 2nd click increases attack to 11 and adds Super Strength and Enhancement.

At 60 points Ultron-5 (Drone) continues his dial trading Invulnerability for Toughness and Sidestep for the movement special power Hypnotic Mesmerism. It allows Ultron-5 (Drone) to use Mind Control. When he does, place and Influence token on each hit character’s card. Ultron-5 (Drone) can use Mind Control as a free action to target a single character with an Influence token on their card regardless of range or line of fire. His final 2 clicks add Close Combat Expert to help finish off his foes. The keywords for both are the same, Masters of Evil and Robot. Building a theme team shouldn’t be an issue.

Thank you human degenerate for listening to my plan. I may have further use for you so I will not vaporize you… yet. I may share my plans for the next iteration of myself in the Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline Organized Play.
