Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline OP – Vision

Greetings HeroClix fans! Today, we’re taking another look at a piece from the Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline Organized Play event! Our piece today features a classic Avenger, as well as member of the Young Avengers – Vision!

Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline Organized Play - Vision

An 80-point piece, Vision is best suited to move freely about the map, using his range of five squares to pick troublesome opposing figures off from a distance. Of course, that’s not all he’s built for! For example, if you run him on a Young Avengers themed team, you can take advantage of his trait, Protect Cassie No Matter What. This trait provides a unique modifier, stating that if Vision is adjacent to a friendly character named Stature, you modify both of their attack values by +1!

Vision also makes use of some significant standard powers. As hinted at earlier, Vision begins the game with two clicks featuring both Phasing/Teleport and Penetrating/Psychic Blast – which are especially useful when positioning and getting him ready to attack characters with damage reducing powers, like Iron Man or Ms. Marvel. His final two clicks also bring two powers well suited to work together, Charge and Exploit Weakness. Other standard powers on his dial include Precision Strike, Shape Change, and Super Senses.

One of the Vision’s signature abilities is his ability to become lighter than air or harder than steel, which is represented on his dial by his special power Density Control. Appearing on his first three clicks of defense, Density Control states that at the beginning of your turn, you may choose one of these combinations until you choose again: Vision can use Super Senses and modifies his defense value by +1, or Vision may instead use Invulnerability and Super Strength!

A versatile combatant, able to damage in either close combat or ranged combat situations, Vision is a significant addition to any team, and is able to be played on Anti-Registration, Robot, or Young Avengers themed teams. He has a diverse set of abilities, and can suitably fill any role you need at any given time!

That’s it for today, ‘Clix fans! Be sure to join us next time as we continue to take more exciting looks at the Marvel HeroClix: Civil War Storyline OP and other upcoming releases! Visit the WizKids Info Network to find events near you. Until next time, push for the win!

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron- Ultron Week

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

It is still Ultron Week human and you are gifted with a preview from the Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline OP Booster Brick 2! Today’s preview will be the utter destruction of the human race replaced by the mentally superior robot race with Ultron-6 at its core!

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Ultron-6

Ultron-6 is 160 points and has 6 clicks of life. He has a single target 7 range and possesses Indomitable. He has 1 trait, Vision’s Father and it states to give Ultron-6 a power action. If you do, you may give one action as a free action to a friendly character named Vision and, after actions resolve, heal that character 1 damage. This power does not say anything about adjacency, range, nor line of fire, so use Ultron-6’s son to weaken your foe and then take out the remnants with Ultron-6!

Ultron-6’s dial is meant to crush all who oppose him. He starts with Pulse Wave with an 11 attack and 4 damage with 2 special powers. His movement special power, Jet-Propelled Juggernaut allows Ultron-6 to use Running Shot, the Flight ability, and Improved Movement: ignores characters and— as he comes barreling through squares with other characters in them— he can bump them into adjacent squares! You can setup your opponent’s figures for your next attack using this power, or perhaps prevent them from retaliating on your next turn!

Ultron-6’s defense special power, First Adamantium, let’s Ultron-6 use Impervious. Once per turn he can reroll his roll for Impervious. This power can’t be countered. His 2nd click he retains these powers and also gains Outwit.

On click 4 Ultron-6 has Running Shot, Impervious, and the special attack power, Become Sheer Ionic Force granting him the ability to use Pulse Wave. When he does and hits, after actions resolve, you may place him adjacent to a hit character and modify his defense value by +2 until his next turn. Lastly, clicks 5 and 6 have Invulnerability.

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Ultron-6 Drone

 

Ultron-6 (Drone) has 2 traits. The first trait is Autonomous or Drone Mode and it says Ultron-6 costs 120 points, or costs 30 points and begins on the click #1 after the orange KO. Until KO’d, Ultron-6 is considered 120 points. He also has a 2nd trait called Basic Programming and it states when Ultron-6 has no action tokens, its actions don’t count against your action total. When Ultron-6 begins or ends a non-free action adjacent to a friendly character whose name includes Ultron, it can use Willpower that action.

Just like previous Ultron (Drones), Ultron-6 (Drone’s) top click starts with Sidestep and Invulnerability, and just like other Ultron (Drones) the top 2 clicks are the same for that model Ultron (Drone) regardless of point cost. The 2nd click of Ultron-6 (Drone) possesses Penetrating/Psychic Blast, Impervious, and the special movement power Extendable Limbs that allows Ultron-6 (Drone) to use Plasticity, Sidestep, and he has the Giant damage symbol. His single target 7 range will be handy with those powers as well. Click 3 is almost identical but click 4 but we see a downgrade to Invulnerability.

For Ultron-6 (Drone’s) end dial, he changes to a close combat strategy that works well with his Giant symbol. He gains Quake and Exploit Weakness on clicks 5 and 6 and Regeneration for his last 3 clicks. Both Ultron-6 and Ultron-6 (Drone) have the Robot and Scientist keywords.

Last up is Ultron’s rebellious son, Vision

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Vision

Vision is an even 100 points and for this you get 7 clicks of life, the Wing movement symbol, Indomitable, and a single target 6 range. His trait, Hidden Programming, says when a friendly character whose name includes Ultron is given a move action and actions resolve, Vision may be given a move action as a free action. Use this in conjunction with Ultron-6’s trait Vision’s Father to get Vision across the map, make an attack, then give Vision a non-free attack action or a move action. He can also use Sidestep through his special attack power He’s Coming… Through the Wall! When Vision uses Sidestep or is given a move action, he can use Improved Movement: ignores blocking terrain.

In addition to his special movement power on his top 2 clicks, Vision has Penetrating/Psychic Blast, Super Senses, and Shape Change so he can be hard to hit and very dangerous to feeble humans with his penetrating damage!

Mid-dial Vision brings humanity to the brink of extinction! With Charge, Super Strength, Invulnerability, and Exploit Weakness he will make father proud. On clicks 3 and 4, he can do 6 penetrating damage with an ultra-heavy object, 7 with a critical hit.

Vision’s last 3 clicks are identical as well except for a small movement deviation on his last click which includes Phasing/Teleport, Precision Strike, Super Senses, and the special damage power Must… Rebuild… Father. It says Vision can use Support, but only to target characters whose name includes Ultron. He may do so even if he or the target is adjacent to an opposing character. 

Organic children of the earth, you have seen the futility of your future on planet Earth but not all is lost, I will make a record of your existence and perhaps share it with you before your demise in the next preview of the Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline Organized Play set!

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP Strategy Article

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline OP- Robot Strategy Article

Greetings, HeroClix fans!

Welcome once again to a further look into the depths of the first wave of booster bricks from the upcoming Age of Ultron Storyline OP event. Today, we’re going to continue our look into Team Building by focusing in on a Robot themed team – which is probably the second most common keyword in the set after Avengers.

Up first on our team is a character that debuted very recently in the Age of Ultron event from Marvel Comics, Alexis! While her dial is fairly straightforward, Alexis brings a bevy of support powers and board control to the table that makes her an incredible value at 65 points. On the first two clicks of her five click dial, Alexis can fly in and out of combat by making use of Phasing/Teleport, to ensure that she’s strategically positioned to use either Precision Strike or Probability Control. Towards the end of her dial, she picks up Sidestep, and on her final two clicks brings Perplex and Defend with an 18 and 17 defense to help her team.

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Alexis

Next, we have Ultron-1, an indomitable automaton bent on destruction. To begin, Ultron-1 starts with Improved Movement: Ignores Hindering Terrain, as well as two traits. The first, Total Mind-Wipe, which allows Ultron-1 to give a hit opposing character a Mind-Wipe token once per game. This token indicates that the character with the Mind-Wipe token cannot attack Ultron-1, unless that character and Ultron-1 are the only characters on the map. Along with that trait, there are a series standard powers that make Ultron-1 a dangerous member of your team, including Mind Control, Penetrating/Psychic Blast, Outwit, and Perplex. He also possesses a special power on his final three clicks of defense called Self-Upgrade, which states that Ultron-1 can use Impervious and Regeneration. When he does use Regeneration, and the result is a 5 or 6, you’re able to place an Upgrade token on his character card, which ties directly into his second trait, Ultron-1.x. For each upgrade token on his card Ultron-1’s combat values are modified by +1.

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Ultron-1

The final member of the team is the Vision, the indomitable Avenger created by Ultron. As he’s being run on a team featuring an Ultron, Vision can take advantage of his trait, Hidden Programming. This trait states that when a friendly character whose name includes Ultron is given a move action and actions resolve, Vision may be given a move action as a free action. Vision also possesses two special powers, with the first appearing at the top of his dial on movement. This power, called He’s Coming…Through the Wall! grants Vision the ability to use Sidestep. In addition, when he uses Sidestep or takes a move action, he can use Improved Movement: Ignores Blocking Terrain. His second special power, present on his final three clicks, is called Must…Rebuild…Father, an ability which grants Vision the usage of Support, but only to target characters whose name includes Ultron – he may do so even if he or the target is adjacent to an opposing character. Coupled with those special powers are numerous other basic powers, like Super Strength, Precision Strike, Exploit Weakness, and two clicks at the top of his dial that utilize the always effective combination of Super Senses and Shape Change.

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron SLOP- Vision
