Famine
Limited Ed.

#203

Reviewed 06.27.2011

Rurouni KJS

The 2011 Origins convention is done. Attendants who played HeroClix there got first shot at a set of exclusive Limited Edition figures. They're supposed to become more widely available later in the year, but some of you want them NOW! 
 
Across the next couple of weeks, Clix Of The Day reviews these five pieces.
 
FAMINE
double-based wing transporter
99 points
Team: none
Keywords:  Horsemen of Apocalypse, Teen
Range: 6 x 1
 
DIAL & CARD:

STRENGTHS:
She's a transporter with 18 DV and Invulnerability and she's good against Willpower with her "Third Horseman" trait that saps the DV of enemies with two tokens. She has damage reduction all dial long and Exploit Weakness on both ends. Pushing to her 2nd click buys Incapacitate (an answer to her low damage) and her SP "Starve," which enables her to give adjacent foes action tokens if she's got none herself — no attack roll needed!
 
WEAKNESSES:
"Starve" requires her to base the enemy — negating her Move And Attack ability — and forces her to choose between it, Incap, and EW. It's nice to have options, but this is overkill. Her best power combos require her to push and thus sacrifice her best stats — especially her damage.
 
CARDS OR COMPANIONS TO CONSIDER:
Fielding the YELLOW LANTERN will mitigate that problem somewhat. Run her with fellow Horsemen of Apocalypse and use their ATA. A passenger with Poison works.
 
IN SUM:
Famine is all about LOCKDOWN. She's not a piece to headline a team, but one you  instead build solid attackers around to take advantage of her ability to slow and weaken the enemy. At a third of the standard 300-point build, though, it's hard to score her higher than 2.5 of 5. Add .5 for higher builds, where she'll have the support to do her thing. She's going to be the easiest of these convention exclusives to snag.
