Xena and Buffy Heroclix? An interesting request
Recently, I gave my girlfriend her first heroclix match and she handed me a sound defeat. Not bad for a first game. She played Ms. Marvel, Supergirl and female Hawkeye against Dr. Doom and Vet Kang the Conquerer. It was a cool match. The best way to learn how to play Heroclix is simply to play it. Go through the motions and see how moves are done as you go. Not at tournaments, but with someone else who plays. I still say she did very well. And it's also about having a good time. I hope she did.
She did make a request and I found it quite interesting. Wizkids, you have a request to look into making heroclix for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Xena: Warrior Princess. Could it be done? I think so, but I could see something of a licensing nightmare too.
Still, there would be enough characters and cool abilities. How about Buffy? Charge, Blades/Claws/Fangs, Willpower, Combat Reflexes? Maybe Close Combat Expert? Vampires could host a variety of powers, like in Horror Clix. For that matter, Buffy could be another cross set able to play in both games. Not that Horror clix is doing particularly great, but still. After all, they are doing a Street Fighter set, why not Buffy? Why not add Angel and the characters from his show? How about a set on TV heroes? Greatest American Hero would be a good one in that. Of course, I wonder how many players would even know who he is or was.
I also think the Green Hornet and Kato should be heroclix. That would be very cool indeed.
