Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron- War Machine

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Today’s preview from the Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline Organized Play series brings us to a close friend of Tony Stark who temporarily took over as Iron Man before adventuring in his own battle suit. Please welcome military pilot James Rhodes (aka War Machine)!

Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron- War Machine

War Machine comes into play at an even 200 points and boasts a range of seven squares with three (count ‘em, three!) targets. War Machine also enters the battlefield with an Improved Movement ability called Targeted Chaingun Fire, which lets him ignore hindering terrain when he shoots, and a trait called Tony Can’t Fly Like This!, which bumps up his defense values by +2 against ranged attacks by letting him use Energy Shield/Deflection. Finally, War Machine has the Avengers team ability so his move actions don’t count toward your pool of available actions for the turn.

Offense is the name of the game for War Machine, who has a steady set of combat values and starts his dial with a pair of special powers in his attack and damage slots, respectively. The attack special power, Variable Threat Response, shows up on the first four clicks of War Machine’s dial and lets him take a free action to use one of the four standard powers that appear on the remainder of his dial: Penetrating/Psychic Blast, Pulse Wave, Precision Strike, and Energy Explosion. With Variable Threat Response, you can tailor your ranged attacks according to whatever it is you’re facing. Going up against a cluster of advancing opponents? Energy Explosion makes a great option with War Machine’s three targets and damage values. Pulse Wave is also an excellent choice, especially when you find yourself surrounded. Hey, Penetrating/Psychic Blast and Precision Strike are no slouches, either!

The second special power is Improved Laser Targeting, which pairs well with Variable Threat Response by letting War Machine use Probability Control when he targets more than one opponent with a ranged attack. War Machine may have decent attack values on the front half of his dial but Improved Laser Targeting gives him a second shot at landing a hit if the first attack roll misses.

The rest of War Machine’s dial works in unison with his special powers. In War Machine’s speed slot, he starts with Running Shot, then picks up Sidestep for a short run before regaining Running Shot for the remainder of his dial. Defensively, War Machine starts with Impervious to potentially absorb all damage dealt to him. He then downgrades to Invulnerability for a few clicks before rounding out his dial with a short run of Toughness. Finally, after War Machine has stopped using is Improved Laser Targeting he gains Ranged Combat Expert as an offensive option.

War Machine can be found in Age of Ultron’s second wave of tournament boosters and packs enough firepower for those players who are looking to add him to their forces as a primary attacker. If you’re looking to include War Machine on a themed team, he has plenty of keyword options available: Armor, Avengers, Pilot, S.H.I.E.L.D., Soldier, and Stark Industries.

Thanks for reading. Keep coming back as we reveal more exciting characters in the Marvel HeroClix: Age of Ultron Storyline Organized Play set!
