Hello there HeroClix Fans!
Today’s article takes a turn for the darker as we examine the Horsemen of Apocalypse Alternate Team Ability!
Apocalypse has many minions and followers, but the most feared are his Horsemen. This quartet is dedicated to their master’s tenet of “survival of the fittest” and the boost in attack values this ATA offers allows them to more readily test their opponents!
Of course, this ATA is uncopyble by Wild Cards as Apocalypse doesn’t take just anyone into his fold, let lone the ranks of his esteemed Horsemen, and a +1 one benefit to attack Values may seem minor but at only one point per chracter, this ATA is actually pretty economical. Sure you may lose it if you do not have the requisite four Horsemen, but Apocalypse is a harsh master and does not reward failure or compromise! If the Horsemen prove unworthy, Apocalypse has no compunctions against removing his favor!
That’s all we have for today, but be sure to join us tomorrow for a very special Alternate Team Ability article penned by our GenCon 2010 King of the Hill winner, Stephen C. Plasco! As many of you may recall, top prize for the Battle Royale events was the opportunity to design an Alternate Team Ability and Stephen’s article will take us behind the scenes to examine both his process and strategy.
We’ll see you all tomorrow! Until then, keep your Clix strong and fighting!
