COMING SOON! Unpainted Miniatures – The WizKids Way
We often receive feature and product line requests from you, our beloved players, and one such request that came up frequently was the desire to have high quality, yet affordable, unpainted miniatures. As a leader in the pre-painted miniatures market, we decided it was time to do something. Last year we announced that we would be launching a brand new line of unpainted miniatures. These minis were going to be made the “WizKids way”, high quality with great attention to detail, yet affordable for everyone. Our way also includes bringing on board fantastic brands that we all know and love in addition to offering exclusive characters and monsters that tug at all of our heart strings.
The initial launch of WizKids Unpainted Miniatures lines brought the heroes and monsters from your RPG adventures to the tabletop like never before. After the premier of our unpainted lines, we were so overwhelmed by the positive feedback and reviews we received, that we couldn’t wait to do it all over again!
We are excited announce our plan to bring previously unavailable and long sought after creatures to our Dungeons & Dragons unpainted miniatures line, Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures.

The Flash
Today we’re taking a closer look at one of the figures from the upcoming DC HeroClix: Wonder Woman Gravity Feed. Today’s subject is none other than the scarlet speedster himself, The Flash!

Portrayed here in his DC Rebirth costume, this version of Wally West is indicative of his time with the Titans. The 005 version of The Flash is a 60-point piece, has 4 clicks of life, and possesses the Titans team ability. He begins with a trait called Titans Together, which states that if another friendly character healed this turn with the Titans team ability, modify The Flash’s attack value by +1 this turn. He also possesses two special powers – the first of which is called The Speed Force Strengthens Me, appearing on all 4 clicks of his movement dial. This power states that The Flash can use Hypersonic Speed, and when he does, he can use Steal Energy and modify his speed value by +2 – letting him move up to 11 squares!

Greetings WizKids Fans,

Missed videos posted earlier this week?
BINGE WATCH NOW
MARK YOUR CALENDARS! Pre-Release events begin next week!
Players will have an opportunity to get a sneak peek at the figures from the Marvel HeroClix: Avengers/Defenders War set before official world-wide release! But before then, we’re giving you an inside look at a few of the figures now at HeroClix.com! This week we checked out one of the chase figures from the set, Iron Heart!
As a superhero who is still learning the game, Iron Heart has a six-click dial and low point value of 25.  Iron Heart hasn’t logged anywhere near the amount of flight time that Iron Man has, and her dial reflects this inexperience by alternating between Sidestep and Earthbound/Neutralized with a set of average speed values.  However, as a 15-year-old genius with an education from M.I.T., Iron Heart has a damage track that includes the popular support powers of OutwitProbability Control, and Perplex.

HEROCLIX PREVIEWS! Marvel HeroClix: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
We’re just weeks away from the April release of our Marvel HeroClix: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Movie Gravity Feed. So today, we turn the spotlight to the team member with a thirst for vengeance, an affinity for knives, and a difficulty grasping the concept of metaphors.  Let’s all give a hand (figuratively, not literally) to Drax!
Vengeance drives Drax, thus he begins play with a trait called The Path of Vengeance, which lets him use the Colossal Stamina ability to take a non-free action when he has two action tokens – but with the penalty of being dealt 1 unavoidable damage after actions.  Additionally, The Path of Vengeance boosts Drax’s combat values by +1 for each action token on him, and when he clears action tokens he may heal 1 click.

HEROCLIX! 2017 Rules Update
After extensive behind-the-scenes work, it’s finally time to start showing everyone what we’ve been working on in terms of updating the HeroClix rules.  What we are sharing is still going through final playtesting so while nearing completion there may still be some tweaks that occur before being finalized.  We do not have an official date for when these rules will be locked down, but until that date is determined the current rules stand and all rules we talk about in these articles are not official.   We do know that any official rollout will be after the 2017 HeroClix World Championships at Origins Game Fair. We’ll be sharing many articles (with no set schedule or quantity) talking about where we are and where we’re going, but with this first article we wanted to discuss the process of making the rules better.

HEROCLIX! 2017 Rules Update
After extensive behind-the-scenes work, it’s finally time to start showing everyone what we’ve been working on in terms of updating the HeroClix rules.  What we are sharing is still going through final playtesting so while nearing completion there may still be some tweaks that occur before being finalized.  We do not have an official date for when these rules will be locked down, but until that date is determined the current rules stand and all rules we talk about in these articles are not official.   We do know that any official rollout will be after the 2017 HeroClix World Championships at Origins Game Fair. We’ll be sharing many articles (with no set schedule or quantity) talking about where we are and where we’re going, but with this first article we wanted to discuss the process of making the rules better.

Wizkids Newsletter – Sidekick Night

Posted on March 1st, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

An interesting idea from Wizkids…

Greetings WizKids Fans!

WizKids is excited to announce Sidekick League, a new initiative to introduce players to HeroClix, Dice Masters and Star Trek: Attack Wing! Sidekick League is going to be a casual, fun, and welcoming event series at your friendly local game store. It is not meant to replace the competitive scene that exists in many successful HeroClix, Dice Masters and Star Trek: Attack Wing stores.

How does it work?

Once a month, selected stores can host a Sidekick Night, where veteran HeroClix or Dice Masters players will bring someone who is new to the game and interested in learning, as their Sidekick. They’ll play side-by-side against another player and their Sidekick, with the veteran players providing some advice and instruction. Players will be rewarded just for showing up*! At the end of 3 months, players and their Sidekicks who have attended at least 2 Sidekick Nights will be able to win limited edition HeroClix or Dice Masters prizes. There is no recommended entry fee for Sidekick Night.

*Stores will reward participation prize to each player the first time they show up to Sidekick Night in a Sidekick Season. On the 3rd Sidekick Night, players who have attended at least twice will be eligible for an entry into a random drawing for HeroClix or Dice Masters prizes.

What are the key components to this program?

  • Sidekicks will be paired up with experienced players (either the friend that brought them or if they showed up alone, with a designated person assigned by the store).
  • Sidekicks will play next to their experienced player (ideally against another Sidekick sitting next to their experienced friend) and be allowed to ask their experienced partner questions during a game. Sidekicks will be able to take back moves and otherwise learn as they go with winning being secondary to the learning of the game (especially since the kits don’t have competitive prizes).
  • Experienced players will focus on the Sidekick for the first few games but will eventually be able to play their own games after the Sidekick gets the hang of it.
  • Sidekicks during this program should be allowed to look at all sides of their opponent’s card to better understand what is happening during a game.

DICE MASTERS! Golden Age vs. Modern Age

In 2014 we set out on a path that would lead to our players rolling an enormous number of dice, and WizKids becoming the world’s #1 dice manufacturer. Players have built up large Dice Masters collections and we’ve continued to expand the game into new licenses, product configurations, and themes. After careful consideration, and for the overall health of the game, we’re going to be splitting the constructed format into two categories – one where nearly every card and die is legal, and one where each set will have a lifespan of at least two years. These two constructed formats will be Golden Age and Modern Age respectively.

Deadpool 037b
The green ringed Prime 037b Deadpool goes for the black and yellow X-Men suit to reflect his time as a ‘probationary X-Man’, complete with the X-Men team ability and keyword alongside Weapon X and Assassin. This is the Deadpool to be Shifting Focus to when you know you are going to take a big hit because of his trait, Healing Factor On The Double. When he takes damage, after actions resolve, roll a d6 and heal him of half the result. If that wasn’t enough healing, he has Regeneration on his last two clicks. Rounding out his dial he has Sidestep and Phasing/Teleport to get around and Toughness and Combat Reflexes on defense to keep him from getting too dinged up while he tries to regrow limbs.
