WizKids Previews Venom Hulk For HeroClix

Comics can already be pretty weird on their own. But when you get into “What if…?” scenarios, it can get even stranger. In this case, it’s a look at what would happen if the Venom symbiote was attached to the Hulk, instead of Topher Grace… I mean, Spider Man and then Eddie Brock. Venom Hulk will be getting a mini in the new set for HeroClix, and you can get a look at it here.

WizKids Previews In-Betweener For HeroClix

You can’t have light without dark. You can’t have good without bad. You can’t have up without down. These cosmic rules are kept in check by the In-Betweener, a being that’s the embodiment of balance in the Marvel universe. And soon, he’ll be making his way to your HeroClix games, as the new What If…? set is going to have him in it. Check it out.

WizKids Previews White Lanterns For Dice Masters

The Green Lanterns aren’t the only color there is. Some of you might also know about the Yellow Lanterns. But even those are just two of the many, each one representing a different emotion or concept. The White Lanterns represent life, and it’s a couple of White Lantern cards for Dice Masters that we get a preview of here. You can pick these up in the new Batman set, available now.

USAopoly Announces Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – Gear Up and Rock Out! Card Game

You know, I really should get around to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy 2… And for that matter, I should get around to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy 1. Ok, so I’m not exactly up-to-date on my movies. Though you don’t have to have seen the movie to enjoy a new game that’s coming out from USAopoly based on the mismatched group. It’s called Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Gear Up and Rock Out!

WizKids Previews What If…? Daredevils

Where we are now is because of a long series of decisions, situations, and happenstance. But what if anything along the way had been different? How would things change? Well, in comics, you can actually change stuff around like that and see what might’ve happened. Like, what if Daredevil was an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.? That’s what we get a look at here in this HeroClix preview.

Knight Models Taking Pre-Orders For Next DC Releases

Knight Models has started taking orders for their next wave of releases for both the Batman Miniatures Game and the DC Universe Miniatures Game. They’ve got the World’s Finest version of Superman coming. It’s a good thing, too, since the other releases are the likes of General Zod, Lex Luthor, and Doomsday.
Along with all that, they’ve got a free download of the World’s Finest cards over on their website.

WizKids Posts Two New Batman Dice Masters Previews

While Batman takes care of much of the crime problem in Gotham, he doesn’t work alone. Commissioner Gordon certainly does all he can from within a system that seems tailor-made for corruption and ineptitude. He’s getting a card and dice in the upcoming Dice Masters set, as is it Bat-Signal.

IDW Games To Release Wayward Board Game

While most people think of comics just in “the big two,” there are other companies out there creating real quality graphic novels. One such is Wayward. They are teaming up with IDW Games to release the Wayward board game. In it, players will take on the roles of iconic characters from the comics and look to protect Tokyo from the Yokai.

WizKids Previews Hawk and Dove For Dice Masters

A new DC-centered Dice Masters set is hitting soon from WizKids. Though the focus is on Batman, as always, there’s plenty more heroes and villains to check out. A pair of do-gooders with vastly different approaches, Hawk and Dove, are among the new heroes showing up. You can get a look at them here.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Cheetah For HeroClix

The new Wonder Woman set gets ever-closer to release for HeroClix. As always, the set includes characters from both the “good” and “bad” side of the law. In this case, it’s Cheetah. Because one Cat-Woman wasn’t enough for the DC universe (not to say Mervel doesn’t have a couple of their own). Anyway, she’s getting a new version in this set and you can take a look at her here.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews The Flash For HeroClix

The Wonder Woman set for HeroClix will be coming out soon. In it, they’ll have more than just Wonder Woman. Though, with all the different versions characters go through in comics, I could see them coming out with a set of “just one character.” Anyway, one (well, two of the figures, since he’s got a couple versions) of the figures in the set is going to be The Flash. This is the Wally West version, for anyone curious.

Knight Models Previews Lex Luthor Figures, Stats

Knight Models has posted up some new previews over on their Facebook page. They’ve given us a glimpse of the upcoming Lex Luthor mini, as well as some LexCorp troopers. To add to that, they’ve posted the stats (for both of their minis games) for ol’ cueball as well.

WizKids Previews Captain America For HeroClix

One of the bigger announcements in comic books in the past year or so was the revelation that Captain America had always been a deep-cover Hydra agent this whole time.
Spoilers: it’s not that they retconned all of Steve’s backstory from the beginning. It’s that Red Skull is having some fun with the Cosmic Cube and time travel. But it certainly did shake things up. Well, the “secretly a Hydra agent this whole time” version of Cap is headed to HeroClix in the Avengers/Defenders War set.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Dr. Strange For HeroClix

In the upcoming Avengers/Defenders War set for HeroClix, some of the heroes are listed as “title characters.” They have special abilities tied to them called… well, “title character abilities.” This allows them to gain and spend Plot Points in order to do special things on the board. Dr. Strange is one such character coming in the set.

Super Powers Unleashed For Savage Worlds Up On Kickstarter

Just about all of us wish we had some form of super power. Maybe it’s super speed, or flight, or heat-vision, or weather control. Whatever it might be, heading out and fighting crime with our powers (or perhaps being a super villain) isn’t really something we can do. But we can all live vicariously through RPGs. One such, Super Powers Unleashed, that uses the Savage Worlds system, is up on Kickstarter now.

New Releases Available For DC Universe and Batman Miniatures Games From Knight Models

Knight Models has posted up a new batch of releases for their DC Universe Miniatures Game as well as their Batman Miniatures Game. Much of it falls distinctly into the “villain” category, including one of the most villainous villains to ever villain: Darkseid. You’ve got him along with some of his Parademons. The Falcone Crime Family also makes an appearance. So does Professor Pyg. To try and keep it all in check is Shazam.

WizKids Previews Gladiator For HeroClix

Ah, comic books. You gotta love ’em. You can have a super villain who has titanium table saw blades strapped to the back of some gloves. Because why the hell not? This time around in their previews of the Avengers/Defenders War set for HeroClix, WizKids takes a look at Gladiator.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Batroc For HeroClix

WizKids continues their look at the upcoming Avengers/Defenders War set for HeroClix with a peek at Batroc. A master of martial arts, Batroc can get pretty much where you need him on the map, having a bunch of different movement abilities. That way, you can apply his Karate chops right where you want them.

Knight Models Previews Professor Pyg and Dollotrons For Batman Miniatures Game

Professor Pyg and the Dollotrons… Sounds like a prog rock band from the 70s. But, really, it’s a new set that’s coming out for the Batman Miniatures Game from Knight Models. And so you know what you’re getting yourself into, they’ve posted up an in-depth preview of the group over on their website.

WizKids Previews Groot For HeroClix

I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot.
I guess I could leave it at that and claim that’s all the proper words for letting you know about this preview, but that wouldn’t really be right. Anyway, since there’s a new Guardians of the Galaxy set coming for HeroClix, they’d be remiss if they left out everyone’s favorite talking (kinda) treeman.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Ant-Man For HeroClix

Just think what you could do if you had the power of the mighty ant!
… Ok, it doesn’t initially sound so awesome, but if you know about Ant-Man, you know it’s really not so bad. He’s making his way back to your HeroClix tables in the upcoming Avengers/Defenders War set. Have yourself a look-see.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews The Porcupine For HeroClix

Comics are filled with all sorts of colorful characters. The Porcupine is certainly among them. Looking at the costume, he’s giving me a sort of “Ultimate Warrior” vibe, but without the face paint. Anyway, the villain is coming to your HeroClix games in the Avengers/Defenders War set, but you can get a look at him here.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Rocket Raccoon For HeroClix

When you think of the Guardians of the Galaxy, I’m willing to say it’s a pretty safe bet that you’re thinking of Groot and Rocket Raccoon. While Star Lord may be the leader, and Drax and Gamora certainly have their parts to play, the dynamic duo of a talking (kind of) tree and murderous raccoon are what I, at least, think of when I think of the group. Well, with the new movie coming out, there’s going to be new versions of those characters. In this preview, we get a look at what Rocket Raccoon is going to be like.
Continue reading

X-Men Munchkin Now Available

Back when I read comics, I was an X-fan. I mostly read X-Factor, but since I also read Wolverine, so that means I read some X-Men as well. And, of course, I watched the cartoon as well. As such, I’ve always been more a Marvel fan than a DC fan. So, even though I don’t read comics anymore, I still get excited when I see new Marvel products come out. In this case, it’s the X-Men edition of Munchkin.

DC Deck-Building Game Crossover Pack 5: The Rogues Now Available

Villains aren’t really known for doing team-ups. Most of the time, they tend to work on their own. But sometimes they realize that they, alone, won’t be able to finish their goals like they want. In such times, tenuous alliances have been formed. You get to do just that same thing in The Rogues, the 5th crossover pack for the DC Deck-Building Game from Cryptozoic. It’s available now.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Yondu For HeroClix

The Guardians of the Galaxy certainly does have some interesting-looking characters they interact with. One of them is the space pirate, Yondu. I mean, he’s got an arrow that he can control… psychically? Magically? I don’t honestly know. But you don’t want to get hit by it, that’s for sure. He’s making his way to your tabletops in HeroClix, and you can get a look at what he’s capable of in this preview.

WizKids Previews Drax For HeroClix

Somedecade I need to go see the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I’ve heard it’s good. I’m just really lazy when it comes to that sort of thing. Well, apparently, a new one’s coming out soon. To tie-in with it, WizKids is releasing a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set for HeroClix. We get our first look inside of it with a preview of Drax.

Cryptozoic Announces DC Deck-Building Game Crossover Pack 5: The Rogues

Sometimes it’s good to be bad. Sure, most games have you playing as the goody-two-shoes heroes. But that can get old after a while. Well, thankfully, there’s occasionally times where you get to play as the villains in a game. Cryptozoic is letting you do just that with the next Crossover Pack for the DC Deck-Building Game. It’s called Rogues and it’s due out this week.
