When it comes to attacking, the good doctor doesn’t rely on the brute force of Physical attacks, using Energy and, appropriately, Mystic attack types instead. This gives Doctor Strange an edge on his foes, who often are less resilient to these attack types. Bolts of Bedevilment has a decent Range 4, but the iconic Crimson Bands of Cytorak attack is a true showstopper. By default, this attack allows Doctor Strange to inflict the Stagger special condition, but if the attack roll produces a critical, wild, and a regular hit, Doctor Strange can use the Mystic Binding special rule instead, giving the target an activated token—monkeying with your opponent’s action economy as a result!


Doctor Strange has four different superpowers, each taken from one of the many classic spells the Sorcerer Supreme has used in defending the world from mystical threats. Each one is potent and useful, but special mention goes to the Eye of Agamotto innate power. Not only does this permit Doctor Strange to modify and reroll failures, once per attack he can reroll all the dice of an attack or defense roll. Wielding a Vishanti’s weapon of wisdom has its benefits!

Doctor Strange defends the world aided by his loyal protector, Wong. While he lacks the breadth of abilities the Sorcerer Supreme possesses, he is a valuable addition to any crisis team’s roster! With a Threat of 2, Wong can help to fill in the gaps and put another character on the field, which can be quite useful when you’re trying to secure valuable assets or hold critical locations.

Wong’s rules are a reflection of his role in supporting Doctor Strange. Most of his superpowers benefit other characters in Wong’s vicinity, from Faithful Assistant which allows a friendly character within Range 3 to gain 1 additional power to the potent The Vishanti’s Blessing power that allows an ally of Wong to remove 2 damage or a special condition.

I wouldn't get too excited about affiliation-spoilers. Remember Angela has been on the Asgardian card since near launch and she isn't even on the 2020 release calendar.


Angela/Enchantress is slated for September. I'm still annoyed we're getting some stupid 90's bewb comic leftover rather than Skurge the Executioner or Mantis.

Element games has some other pre-order date info, and other sites are listing a NYC Construction Site terrain pack that I havent seen mentioned.

https://elementgames.co.uk/wargames-and-miniatures/cult-steampunk-other-miniatures-games/marvel-crisis-protocol

No Carnage release date, but it seems likely he'd be packed with Mysterio and released around the time as the Green Goblin.

Carnage packed with Mysterio would be an odd one to me, but welcome. Thinking they'll come out near Goblin would be a surprise. Goblin is already in pre-orders, and we've seen a fair amount of this year's release list. And we've seen models of Ant-Man and Wasp. But nothing yet on Carnage.

Dr. Strange sounds like he's going to be a big control pice. Handing out "Activated" tokens and Stagger? Huge.

Apparently Goblin is now due with Miles and Gwen in Aug, but not any of the other Aug releases from this list, so I'd guess they're bumped to September and everything subsequent has been bumped accordingly

Carnage and Mysterio is just speculation on my part, but they're both part of the Foes of Spider-Man affiliation, so I figure it's a decent guess. Kingpin is supposedly in November, and Goblin was bumped to Jan 2021 for a while, so I'm figuring they'll be late 2020/early 2021 to finish up that faction. If there's another OG Spider-Man villain like Kraven, Hobgoblin or Electro that would be great too!.

Have they added any characters to existing affiliations? Like if we get Storm, would there be a new Wakanda affiliation card? Or Beast in Defenders, Scarlet Witch in Avengers, etc?

New characters, yes. Ant-Man and Wasp, Hawkeye and New Black Widow to Avengers I think are the only instances so far.

That list is pretty much what I've seen before. Lots of quality characters in there.

It does seem odd there are no October releases though.

I still firmly believe its going to be another game Ala Warmahordes.
IT just makes too much sense, allow another game under your belt while having it be "Compatible" looks good for a fledgling studio.

My biggest surprise is they have not taken much from the Spiderman Video game.
That game was insanely popular. I expected Mr. Negative and Silver Sable to be up sometime

Given they're under the Asmodee umbrella, I expect it to be similar to what we've seen with Legion and the Clone Wars factions. New starter box, but still very much the same game.

I think this is the expections. Maybe some new mechanics. Maybe a Warmachine/hordes type thing with common rules but new interactions.

X-men could be the largest affiliation ever though.

If it turns out to be an Xmen starter, I'm hoping for a Classic team plus Wolverine vs. Brotherhood of Mutants.

Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, Angel
Magneto, Mystique, Blob, Toad, Sabertooth.

Then I need Cable & Deadpool...

I honestly hope they hold back on Angel and have him come out when they get to Apocalypse and have him with metal wings.

My bet for the xmen starter is Cyclops, Jean, wolverine, beast. The 5th is a toss up between gambit, rogue, ocean, or night crawler. Gambit and rogue could be thier own box though. I am most excited for gambit and collosus.

I fear you may end up being disappointed; I doubt they will go that far back for the X-Men, not when most of their models so far have been slightly more modern/timeless versions.

I'm expecting a more 90's/current release list, with some crossovers to existing affiliations to pull people into a second starter box, like Storm with Wakanda or to set up future affiliations (Sabertooth/Mystique for Marauders, Deadpool for X-Force). With the rights to mutants now back with the MCU, I think we're going to see a big X-Men push again. The second compatible game makes sense given just how huge the mutant side of the Marvel universe is, with multiple hero and villain factions available to be fleshed out.

Who is...'ocean'?

Iceman?

And yeah, I'm pretty sure they won't go with a 60's X-Men look and feel - but Dare to Dream and all that!

No new starter, 4 boxes, 2 X, 2 Brotherhood. Edit, scratch that, Sabretooth is with Wolverine and Beast is packaged with Mystique. Magneto and Toad, Storm and Cyclops.

Cyclops
Wolverine
Storm
Beast

Magneto
Sabertooth
Mystique
Toad

Lot of jump cuts in the video, but suffice to say nobody has deviated far from their "classic" looks

The new Citadel Technical paint works well on the Hulk (picture attached). This was a very quick first coat over Wraith Bone in less than 5 minutes. Just need to watch out for bubbles as it went extremely bubbly when mixed. Added further layers afterwards to darken the shadowed areas and the the recesses.
