Also, Mind (attacks have either a Physical, Energy or Mind trait and characters have 3 corresponding defence values used depending on what sort they're being targeted by) has so far been the least used, so the presence of another character who uses those attacks heavily is in and of itself a significant change.

Lots of fun subtlety in the rules here, as others have said. I also appreciate the high execution here. As stated, if you catch him out of position, and without energy for MoM, your significant 5pt investment is going to fold like tissue.

As people know I am coming to really love this game, and every new release is just even better.

Romanov has a particular set of skills she brings to the tabletop. She has all the toys you’d expect from a world-class spy and assassin, including a small arsenal of rapid-fire pistols, crowd-controlling tear gas grenades, and her signature gauntlets.

These wrist-mounted weapons give Black Widow, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. her Widow’s Kiss attack, a Strength 6 energy attack that gains an attack die for every special condition her target suffers. While the Widow’s Kiss has a limited range and costs 3 Power to use, it also has the Push special rule. If Black Widow rolls any wilds in the attack, she can push her target back just far enough for her innate Stealth superpower to work and limit her opponent’s options to retaliate.

Of course, this as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t only the battlefield for fun. She’s on a mission. The Interrogate reactive superpower represents Black Widow’s focus on her mission objectives and is a way to boost the number of victory points a player scores on a turn. By spending 3 Power, during the Cleanup Phase Natasha’s team gains 1 VP if any dazed or KO’d enemies as she grills a wounded opponent for relevant information.

“Natasha’s team gains 1 VP if any dazed or KO’d enemies”

if they what?

EDIT: OK card has been shown — Interrogate (3 Power) she must be within range 2 of one or more dazed enemies.

That makes sense, I saw that and assumed it was a typo, but it wasn't obvious which way it needed to be corrected!

Eh... I'm more inclined to use her than the original, but I am not sure I would be in a rush to get her if Hawkeye wasn't bundled in. Definitely the least exciting of the next spoiled wave of releases.

If you want to use Clint, Nutasha is a great synergy.

Her ability to earn scenario-independent VPs is pretty crazy IMO, especially considering she can earn 2/3 power needed just by using her basic attack.

Threat 3 is a much more competitive bracket than Threat 2, however.

Anyone else think their sculpts are getting better? The detail on some of my initial figures was a bit shallow - Iron Man in particular had a soft sculpt where a lot of the detail just didnt come out. My Wakandans turned out great, and other than Loki's face, the Asgardians were good too. Clint and Natasha both look like they have a crisp cast too.

I can't comment on improvements as I'm building as I paint, and I've only just done the starter, but I wholeheartedly agree that some of the detail is shallow. I suspect some is limitations of plastic and some seems to be sculptors learning the technology (apparently they're getting easier to build too.)

Are you mispelling her name on purpose? It's the second time in a row and I don't know if I'm not in on some sort of Marvel meme/joke or overly aggressive autocorrect or just a simple repeated mistake.

I think there are 2 versions of Black Widow, so he's referring to the new version of Natasha as Nutasha.

Don't think so, she's being referred to as Agent Widow to distinguish commonly, and it doesn't make any sense with anything that's different about the new version.

I think the Asgardian wave of releases were all a slight step up from the core, with only Winter Solider who came out at that time being a real dud, with very shallow detail on his metal arm.

The Guardians wave of releases have all been fantastic sculps so far

Ah. I read it as Nut-asha. I figured you were joking that the pose was particularly suggestive and/or stimulating if it wasn't a typo.

New cards. I'm such a try-hard I've shared them before I've read them. I'll be opening threads for events days before they start soon!

Hmm, I've read the card now. Not as exciting as others, but we don't know what the faction bonus or teamwork cards will do for him yet. Plus another size 4 throw isn't to be sneezed at.

Him being rather straightforward may be a boon for Black Order lineups.

That's a lot of health on top of invulnerability for 4 threat. His big weakness is Thor throwing him into teammates.

Lots of exciting stuff on the way. Tried out the Ultron AI mode tonight and it has... gaps, but a good way to play around with characters while the world is shut down.

EDIT: Just noticed there's a second file for the AI for some reason that answers most of my questions....

Had to look up the names of the Black Order from the movie because he looked like he would be the comic version of the big axe guy from it but I didn’t remember anyone saying the name Black Dwarf. Sure enough, he Is the big axe dude from the movie, but the movie had changed his name to Cull Obsidian. So there’s that bit of trivia for y’all.

Ronan and Drax, only one side for each that I've seen, but enough to get an idea.

Drax is a little static for my liking. I really wish he had pounce or something. The movie 5 being 15 threat means I'll almost always play him though.

Same using the main 5 except ill trade out gamora for venom. Because you know venom..........

I wish star lords leadership ability was as strong as captain America's. It does have great flavor and should make for some good shenanigans.

Now if only mcp would make darkhawk. I know it will never happen but a guy can dream.

I put up my lot of Marvel Crisis Protocol up in the Swap shop. Its a wonderful game, but it's fallen too far down my painting Que to be got to this year.
Too many minis, never enough time.

I dropped the price a little too, for the holiday season.



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book.

I was hoping it would mean Guardians have a good set of tactics cards, but that's apparently not the case either. I need to get some playtime in with them once they're all released. Right now they don't seem to have a huge draw outside of just being the Guardians.
