Heroclix Goodness

I enjoy WizKids 'Heroclix' game. I've always been a fan of comics so when I heard of a prepainted miniatures game coming out based upon not only Marvel comics but also DC and various Indy titles I started gibbering and thinking of the enjoyment of using figures in the superhero RPGs that I (would love to...) run. I didn't really think that I'd actually play the game the figures were for, just the RPG potential I could get out of them.
Well I was lucky enough to help playtest a little bit for them before the game came out and that changed my mkind straight away. It was a great game and once I'd actually managed to get hold of the figures I was also pretty impressed (and they've gotten better with each set).
Anyway, WizKids have also done several special 'convention/promotion-only' figures over the last couple of years. I was lucky enough to get hold of Galactus last year in Vegas at GTS but had given up hope of getting the Dark Phoenix figure this year. Well at Salute a few weeks ago WizKids UK ran a prize draw in which if you won you could buy a Dark Phoenix from them. They had several in the draw but still alot of people entered. Well this morning by special delivery a parcel turned up for me and I'm now a proud owner of the Dark Phoenix figure. Go me!!! :p
