Super Heroes


WizKids' Organized Play events let players get some cool prizes, including minis they wouldn't be able to get elsewhere. They're currently showing off their Green Arrow and the Justice Society OP kit for HeroClix, including, of course, Green Arrow and some of his friends. Have yourselves a look.

Gamers, by and large, want to be the first ones to get the new stuff when it's released. They want the latest figures as early as they can. Well, if you're a HeroClix player, you'll want to know about WizKids' pre-release events for the upcoming Justice League Unlimited set for HeroClix.

Many of us here in North America take a bit for granted that we can usually get the "new hotness" games pretty easily. But that's not always the case all around the world. Well, if you're in Europe and you've been having trouble getting WizKids games, you might be in luck. WizKids has new distribution partners over there and so their products should be more available to you.

WizKids' OP kits for HeroClix are known for containing some great figures. The one they're showing off now revolves around some of the most well-known superheroes in the form of Batman and the Martian Manhunter. Together, they're taking on the mind-controlling Despero. Who will come out on top?

Captain America and the Avengers is the next HeroClix set that will be hitting store shelves. Want to get your hands on these new figures a little earlier than the release date? WizKids has you covered. They've posted up their pre-release tourney info. Find out where they'll be held near you and go grab some of the world's greatest super heroes and their dastardly foes.

This time of year, everyone's taking holiday photos. Of friends. Of family. Of food. Of decorations. Well, Knight Models wants to see a bit of Super thrown in there. They're holding a holiday photo contest over on their Social Media pages and they would love to have you enter.

The super heroes and super villains are hitting the streets. Fights are breaking out and it's chaos. Will it be the heroes that save the day? Or will the villains finally take over? That's up to you to decide in Marvel: Crisis Protocol, now available from Atomic Mass Games (already seen some pictures of my friends in other countries that've picked it up already. I'm not envious... I don't know what you're talking about...).

Knight Models recently announced the 3rd Edition of the Batman Miniatures Game. Of course, people want to know what the new model stats look like, especially from the character that has their name in the title. Batman. Have a look at the new stat card for the Caped Crusader.

Knight Models has announced that they're coming out with a new edition of their Batman Miniatures Game. Take to the mean streets of Gotham city and either work to clean up all the scum and riff-raff, or become part of the scum and riff-raff. Expect more updates and previews to come.

No, the dials aren't going to be clear now on HeroClix figures. However, since the dials are printed on the back of the hero's stat cards, WizKids is going to be changing their game rules so that one player can look at another player's stat card whenever they want. Now, many games have such open information already. Now, it's just coming to the HeroClix world.

Let's get ready to... not finish that phrase or I'd have to possibly pay a large sum of money.

Anyway, for those of you WWE fans out there that want to bring your larger-than-life wrestlers onto your tabletop, you'll want to look no further than the WWE Mixed Match Challenge starter set that WizKids is coming out with. It's everything you need to get playing, with four wrestlers, tokens, rules, and a ring in which all the slammin' action can take place.

Can you smeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeellllllllll what's on Mick Foley's hand? Probably. It's a sock after all, and I don't know how often he washes that thing.

If you're looking to get into HeroClix with the new WWE set, WizKids has a perfect place to do so. They've announced their The Rock 'n' Sock Connection Starter Set with some of the WWE's most iconic characters ready to hit the mat.

Hands up everyone who used to watch the X-Men Animated Series. *raises hand* Yeah, it was a pretty sweet cartoon. And who can forget that blasting guitar intro? Anyway, if you want a bit of nostalgia and also to add to your HeroClix collection, you should check out the Marvel HeroClix: X-Men the Animated Series, The Dark Phoenix Saga (full names are fun!). This new set is available now.

Ooooh yeah! It's time to once more look at the upcoming WWE HeroClix set that WizKids is producing. These high-flying performers have some really wild moves, and translating all of that action to the tabletop is of the highest priority. It's with that in mind that WizKids is showing off their Advanced New Standard Powers that will be showing up on the figures. Check it out and make sure you've got everything planned out right.

The Marvel Champions card game was one of the big announcements from Fantasy Flight during Gen Con. It seems so long ago, but we're still a bit out from the release, and I'm sure plenty of players out there want to know more about how the game works. Well, that's exactly what you're getting in this preview. See how the Player Phase works in this new cooperative card game.

The city is under attack. Nefarious plots are afoot and evil supervillains are attacking. What's needed are for the world's greatest heroes to come to the rescue. And that's just what you'll be doing in Hour of Need, a new cooperative superhero board game coming soon to Kickstarter from Blacklist Games.

There's a bevy of new DC Universe and Batman Miniatures Game figures available to pre-order from Knight Models. They've got new versions of classics like Superman and Robin, along with a rogues gallery of baddies like the Joker and Lex Luther, plus more. Pre-orders go until October 1st.

Atomic Mass Games is bringing a new superhero miniatures game to your tabletops with Marvel: Crisis Protocol. But how will different characters work? You might've seen a stat card, but what do the numbers and symbols mean? In this preview, we get a look at exactly that.

The logistics behind getting gaming products out to you, the populace, are huge and complicated. And try as they might, sometimes things don't go as planned. Any small hiccup along the way can cause a change in when product is available. So, with that in mind, WizKids is sad to say that they are pushing back the release of the Marvel HeroClix: X-Men the Animated Series, the Dark Phoenix Saga set until the end of the month.

It's Friday. Gateway to the weekend. What will you be getting up to? Gaming? I'm going to guess gaming. Me? I won't be gaming. That's fine. Gaming doesn't always happen every weekend. Instead, I'll be getting up to some cooking. What might I cook? I've not fully decided yet, as I've yet to make my grocery list (I go shopping Saturday mornings). But I'm thinking I might give a try to some Chocolate Blackout Cake, or maybe some Banana Bread. Perhaps I'll try some Chicken Parm. We'll see. Maybe I'll just order a pizza and laze around the apartment. It's a mystery! But, before we get to those treats, we've got some bite-sized morsels of the gaming variety to snack on.

Today on the platter we have: Supers Ulimited Superhero Minis Up On Kickstarter, Kraken Dice Releasing Mulholland Sunset Dice Today, and Metallice Dice Games Summer Sale Happening Now.

The DC Universe and Batman Miniatures games are getting some reinforcements. There's a whole bunch of kits available for them over on the Knight Models website. Head over and put your name down on the list now and you'll be the first to get them when they launch on August 18th.

Solomon Grundy want pants too!

The X-Men have been in just about every form of media. Of course, there's the comic books, but there's also movies and, in this instance, TV shows. Raise your hand if you watched the X-Men cartoon. *raises hand and sees most others do it, too* That's what I thought. Well, there's some new figures for HeroClix coming based on that beloved show.

I have to admit, I was a Marvel guy and not a DC guy back when I read comics (which was decades ago at this point, mind you). So, I don't know anything about Doom Patrol. All I know is that Knight Models will be coming out with figures for them soon for the Batman Miniatures Game. And... apparently... it includes a donkey? O,o

Keep the Earth safe from all who would want to do harm, the Justice League is a group of the greatest super heroes the world has ever seen. And soon, they'll be coming to your tabletops. Knight Models has announced a new Justice League set for the DC Universe Miniatures Game.

You've got your books for Survive This!! Vigilante City. But you want more. You need more books! (I mean, we're gamers here, we always want more). Well, your prayers have been answered. There's a Kickstarter campaign up and running now to get you those books that you so desperately desire. They're filled with plenty of new options for your games.
