Standard

In our first event at the Comic Warehouse in Brampton, Amber and Jason took it upon themselves to run an ROC Win-A-Map tournament to serve as a feeder event for the ROC Eastern Canada Super Qualifier.

First place in addition to the standard Win-A-Map prizes, Winner received free entry into the ROC in Windsor and a few extras courtesy of Jason and Amber. The weather was somewhat rough, but are you really going to stop us from braving the snow to heroclix?

We would to take a chance to thank the Comic Warehouse for providing a wonderful friendly venue for the event as well as for staying open just a little extra to accommodate the event, and to all the players who came out to play. We’ve had a great positive response from all the players who came out.

Hell Hath No Fury – A Valentine’s Day Scenario

Standard

~Amber

“Heav’n has no rage like love to hatred turn’d / Nor Hell a fury, like a woman scorn’d.”

It’s that time of year where hearts and Cupid have run rampant and even in the Heroclix community there’s no escaping the rush of tournaments and scenarios built to reflect this holiday love. Since I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day I figured it’d be fun to give you guys a slightly different Valentine’s Day Scenario.

Build

300 point Modern Age No Tactics

The Highest point figure on your team must be of the female persuasion (Something like Dire Wraith Queen would qualify whereas Predator is considered to be male)

Each Player must bring 5 tokens that will represent The Exes (these can be anything from poker chips to Lego figures to bystander tokens)

Set Up

Each Team is set up as per usual Heroclix rules.

Each Player places their Exes on the map at least 5 squares away from each starting area.

Scenario Gameplay – Special Exes Rules

* Exes are considered Friendly characters for the player that placed them on the map

* Exes do not move

* Exes can be carried as if they were a character

* Exes are not affected by Energy Explosion, Pulse Wave, or Quake

* Destroying an Ex – Characters may be given a power action to roll 2d6 and add their attack value. If the result is equal to or higher than 18 and the Ex is dealt at least 3 damage it is destroyed.

Victory Points

At the end of the game each Destroyed Ex is worth 25 Victory Points
