UK Nationals - Review

Thursday, 5 June 2014 08:00:00 Europe/London

Greetings to all Blue Rat readers! Today is monday 2nd June, the day after the Heroclix UK National Championship Finals and I've been asked, after some mild bribery, to type up a report of my experiences. I'm going to start with a disclaimer that some of my memories are blurred and i admit that occasionally the numbers and clicks of damage as i remember them don't always stand up to close scrutiny, so i apologise in advance to those of you hoping to recreate key moments in this epic tale of heroism, bravery and one Blue Rat's dangerous obsession with barrier. I'm Alex Crow and as of yesterday i am the UK National Champion. If i turn up at your event wearing a Sinestro-corp t-shirt and a smug grin then know that both are justified. But enough of the introductions, you know how the story ends, so on with how it started!

Welcome back to Team Talk, last time I spent a little time describing my experiences at the first UK Realms Open Championship Super Qualifier in Burton Upon Trent. This time out I'm going to get a bit more focussed on the game itself and list the top 8 teams and look at how they work and how to handle them if you should come up against them.

Team Talk - Scientist

Thursday, 13 February 2014 08:00:00 Europe/London

It's time for another edition of Team Talk and this time round we're breaking with tradition and taking a look at our first ever generic keyword. Generic keywords are interesting to build around as they offer you a different range of characters to select from, usually with some wildly different options, although theming them does mean including more figures on your force.

Almost any generic keyword can be competitive but there are certain keywords that have always stood out, one in particular is the one we're looking at today 'Scientist'.

Team Talk - Asgardian

Tuesday, 26 November 2013 08:00:00 Europe/London

Greetings folks, it's time for another round of Team Talk the series where we look at team building around a keyword within Heroclix. We recently saw the release of the Thor: The Dark World gravity feed set and along with the Fear Itself set which you should now have a good selection of we are now inundated with options for using the Asgardian keyword in a theme team. So let's start as always by looking at a 300pt Modern Age team.

Team Talk - S.H.I.E.L.D.

Thursday, 5 September 2013 08:00:00 Europe/London

 It's time for another round of Team Talk, the series where we focus on teambuilding around a chosen keyword within Heroclix.

 This time we're going to take a focus on S.H.I.E.L.D. the government organisation responsible for protecting Earth's best interests particularly where super powered criminals are concerned. Sometimes the goods guys, sometimes the bad guys, S.H.I.E.L.D. has long been a staple of the Marvel Universe led the the illustrious Nicky Fury (when he hasn't been replaced by a LMD or replaced by Maria Hill or Tony Stark). Team building with S.H.I.E.L.D. gives a lot of options from cheap support pieces up to high cost tentpoles (mostly with the Avengers keyword to boot).

Team Talk - JLI

Tuesday, 13 August 2013 08:00:00 Europe/London

Greetings folks and welcome to another edition of Team Talk, the column where we look at team building around a particular keyword in Heroclix. This week we're focussing on a Justice League International team built for 300pt Modern Age games, though as usual we'll also build some larger point teams for both Modern and Golden Age.

JLI is a keyword that got a lot of love in the Batman and Streets Of Gotham sets with 13 new pieces added to the Modern Age options alongside the highly desirable, and equally rare, convention exclusive Martian Manhunter that was available last summer at GenCon. There's also the much sought after Bug if you're the type of player that likes to include vehicles on their builds.

Team Talk - Kryptonian

Friday, 12 July 2013 08:00:00 Europe/London

Hello Blue Rat readers and welcome to a new, and somewhat belated, entry of Team Talk the column where we take a look at team building within a certain keyword for this game we know and love (when the dice are in our favour).

Everybody and their mother is talking about Man Of Steel right now and whether the film is brilliant or shows a total disregard to the characters heroic nature by having him destroy entire parts of a city with little to no thought for the safety of its citizens. Thoughts on the film itself aside we do have a new Heroclix set based around the film and it's bought the Kryptonian keyword right back to the forefront of many peoples minds whilst building for games. So lets start off with a standard 300pt Modern Age team.

Team Talk - Teen Titans

Friday, 12 April 2013 08:00:00 Europe/London

Greetings and welcome to another edition of Team Talk, the column where we discuss teambuilding around a particular figure or keyword. Thanks for all the great feedback on the Midnight Sons builds from last time, there were some great suggestions on alternate figures or ATA's that could be added to the teams that made for some good reading.

This week I want to take a look at a keyword that is soon to get a massive boost and that's Teen Titans. We've got a new Titans themed set which is to be released next month so we're going to look at some builds using figures that are currently available then we'll also look at how those builds can be modified using the dials that have already been revealed from this new set.

Click the read more link to find out the team I built together with some other teams soon to be available using this keyword.
