Wizkids was kind enough to send HeroClix World a special sneak peek at the Marvel HeroClix Galactic Gardians GRAVITY FEED! We'll be previewing these excellent figures in the coming weeks, so buckle up and enjoy the show!
Today we're kicking off the previews with the excellent NAMOR!.
( Click To See Larger Version of Namor)
For 100 Points, Namor packs a good punch, able to deal 3-4 damage and 2 wonderful clicks of Invulnerability. This gives him some goood early clicks, making him very potent. Charge and Flurry makes him good at closing in on the opponent -- he's clearly built for close combat.
It's very important to note that Namor is first and foremost a flyer, which will come in handy with Charge, since he can "move through squares adjacent to and occupied by opposing characters". Not to mention being able to carry. That being said, we finally have a way to give both flight and Swim, thanks to this handy dandy Trait:
Prince of Atlantis: Namor can use the Swim ability. When Namor occupies water terrain; modify his speed and defense values by +1.
Great trait, but even better once combined with his Special Power:
Drag to the Depths: When Namor occupies water terrain, if he hits a character that can't use the Swim ability with an attack, after actions resolve give that character an action token and place them in any square adjacent to Namor.
While these two abilites are great, they're really just icing on a great 100-point cake. It's always difficult to choose a dolphin/Swim character for your force because all those Swim benefits are lost if you're on a map without enough water. But here, we have a well designed 100-point figure that works well on any map, and if there just happens to be water then that's a huge bonus!
Oh, and did we forget to mention that he sports the X-Men Team Ability? Oh yes... oh yes...
Coming Thursday: The 128-Point Hulk... with a surprising Team Ability!
