The Mighty Thor "Wielder" Traits Clarification

Postby hcrulesteam » Fri Sep 01, 2017 5:14 pm

Hey HeroClix fans!

We’ve been getting some questions about the “Wielder of…” traits in Marvel HeroClix: The Mighty Thor. Specifically, can the characters with those traits be played without their signature weapons?

They are definitely designed to be played with their awesome weapons (What’s Thor without Mjolnir? What’s the Executioner without his Bloodaxe?). At the same time, we don’t want to unfairly penalize players that legitimately lost or forgot to bring the appropriate weapon.

So we’re issuing a clarification:

  • You may choose to play a character with a “Wielder of…” trait from Marvel HeroClix: The Mighty Thor without the indicated weapon equipped. If you do so as part of a tournament, indicate they are unequipped on your army sheet and they must start each game unequipped, no picking and choosing each round.

  • Along with starting each game unequipped, they can’t be equipped by anything else before your first turn (ie, at the beginning of the game or during force construction). In Modern, this applies to characters like Brainiac, Eclipso, Proteus, etc., but may apply to future game elements as well.

The second clause is to prevent “starting them unequipped” from being an advantage in force building. We want to encourage players to play them with their appropriate weapons, but we don’t want to penalize players that don’t have the weapons. But those same players shouldn’t get an extra potential advantage in force building.
We hope you’re all having a great time with The Mighty Thor! The response to it and the new rules has been tremendous so far.
