Rurouni KJS Experienced Timber Wolf
wing speed
60 points
Team: Legion of Super-Heroes
Keywords: "Future" "Legion" "Martial Artist" "Teen"
Range: 0 x 1

DIAL:
http://www.wizkidsgames.com/heroclix/dc/figures_dials.asp?dialid=11247&unitid=13057&universeid=6

ANALYSIS:
A great starting Attack Value, Charging Flight and low cost makes Timber Wolf a frontline fighting fig to run right into the mix -- provided you can find a target he can hurt with his puny 2 damage. (He does have Close Combat Expert on those two clicks.) His other stats never crap out and he gets Blades/Claws/Fangs middial. Since he's stuck with Earthbound and Battle Fury then, too, he'll be on his own, anyway. Late Charge can help him make a last-gasp strike.

FEATS?
NANOBOTS works for his whole dial, which isn't a bad idea since you'll likely want to push him through or heal him from those mid-clicks. ARMOR PIERCING alleviates his low damage. DAMAGE SHIELD works for the first half.

IN SUM:
Cheap secondary attacker, AND a wildcard? And a member of the "Teen" keyword team? Get this Wolf in your pack.

RATING: 3.5 of 5. Mediocre defense numbers and that Fury-ous mid-dial shaves a half point.

Today's review is Timber Wolf from LoSH

 

Don’t know anything about the LoSH, except they sacrifice one of themselves if one of the big three dies. 

 

He is an experienced, 60 points, 0 range, 6 clicks of life, a flier, no AE, and LoSH team

Speed:   3 of charge and some random earthbound, at least he has the move and shoot

Attack:   High, BCF helps if your lucky

Defense:  Low values, but SS can keep him alive longer


Damage:  Charge and CCE don’t work, but good for nanobots all time

 
The Good:  High attack values

      Lots of move and shoot

      BCF can help

      Damage can be alright at times

     Earthbound helps CR more than you would think

      Wildcard

      Battle fury never really hurts when you fly with no range

 

The Bad:  Charge and CCE don’t work

                Low defense numbers

                He gets hit hard when hit

                Battle fury is 5 points of his build he could do without


Feats:  Nanobots works great, I wouldn’t up his cost too much


Overall:  What we get here is yet another recent close combat secondary attacker with great stats.  The difference is this guy flies, meaning hindering terrain is no problem.  His attack is high, the defense is low, the damage is decent for two clicks, but since you will be charging at least one of those clicks you wont get too far with the CCE.  He isn’t broken, but he isn’t bad either.  He has no real flaws, but nothing that says “Must Play.”

Constructed/Unrestricted:   3 / 5

Sealed/Draft:   N/A / 5

 

Overall:    3 / 5

 

“Heroclix….they’re cool, addictive, and available….the things practically sell themselves.”
