What If? Set for HeroClix Now Available

The latest set for HeroClix, the What If? set, is now available. Though it’s more than just a new set of figures. It’s also a milestone. That being that this is the 15th Anniversary set for the game. It’s been an interesting road, with many twists and turns. Obviously, some years have been better than others. But for a game to be around and still be as supported as HeroClix is, it’s no small achievement.

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

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.

WizKids Announces Sidereal Confluence Board Game

Economies are big, complicated things, and keeping one running, what with its various special needs (based on the individuals in control of them), is difficult. There’s going to be a need for compromise and negotiation. And that’s just what you’ll be doing in Sidereal Confluence, a new game coming from WizKids. In it, players will be the heads of various alien governments, looking to power their economies. No one is able to run solely on their own, so you must work with other players, even as you look to grow your economy faster and make it stronger than theirs.

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.

Crown of Fangs Miniatures Set For Pathfinder Battles Now Available From WizKids

Whenever you sit down for your RPG session, you want to have the right minis for the right situation. At least, I do my best to always have the proper mini to represent the enemies and NPCs out there. “Yeah, it’s all goblin minis, but they’re really giant spiders” isn’t as fun, if you ask me. Well, the folks at WizKids and Paizo feel much the same way. That’s why they’ve come out with their Crown of Fangs miniatures set for Pathfinder Battles.

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.

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.

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.

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.

WizKids Announces D&D Icons of the Realms Epic Level Starter

Role playing characters level up (unless they get killed off or your group can never manage to get together for a game). It’s sort of what they do. They gain new abilities and gear. Things change.

It takes the figures from the regular Icons of the Realms starter set and, well, levels them up.

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.

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.

WizKids Announces DiceBot MegaFun Card and Dice Game

You know, just the other day, we had Super Happy Sentai Hour. Now we’ve got DiceBot MegaFun. You know, the world can sometimes seem very dark and depressing, but leave it to games to help try and lift our spirits. Anyway, enough waxing poetic. WizKids is bringing you DiceBot MegaFun, their new cards and dice game where you control robot gladiators that you customize with all manner of weaponry.

Pathfinder Battles: Crown of Fangs Coming Next Month

If you keep your teeth nice and sparkly-clean, maybe yours, too, can be added to the Crown of Fangs.
Ok, maybe that doesn’t sound like something you should really aspire to. But nonetheless, Crown of Fangs is coming. It’s a new Pathfinder Battles set from WizKids, and they’ve got a special case incentive deal going on for it, too.

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.

WizKids is happy to announce that they’ve re-signed their licensing deal with CBS for Star Trek. Considering how big a property Star Trek is, that’s newsworthy in and of itself.

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.

WizKids Announces Tournament at Camelot Card Game

Ah, Camelot.
It might be a silly place (where you sing from the diaphragm a lot), but it’s still full of wonders and spectacle. One such spectacle takes the form of tournaments, where knights look to show their prowess in combat against one-another. But, seeing as Merlin is never far away, there’s certainly magic afoot during the events. Participants will have to learn to use it to the best of their abilities, along with more traditional fighting implements such as swords and arrows, if they want to win.
That’s the story behind Tournament at Camelot, a new card game coming soon from WizKids

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.

WizKids Announces Tower of London Board Game

What? You need a Beefeater? I’ll eat all the beef you’ve got! *omnomnomnom* … What do you mean, “it might be poisoned”!?!
WizKids has announced a new board game called Tower of London. Players are looking to control areas of this legendary building, moving their Beefeaters around to different rooms. They are also looking to capture ravens. The player with the Tower under their control after 3 rounds, or the first one to collect 7 ravens, wins.

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.

Pathfinder Battles Unpainted Minis Now Available

Some of us love to paint. Some of us don’t. Personally, I fall into the “don’t” category, but I certainly can understand why others do enjoy it. For those that want to have your own RPG minis in the colors you want, you can now pick up the Pathfinder Battles Deep Cuts minis. They’re unpainted, sort of like Reaper’s Bones minis.
