Super Heroes


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.

Discuss

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 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 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.

Discuss

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

For a team, the X-Men never seemed to get along that well. At least, Wolverine and Cyclops certainly never got along.
