Fishclix: The Attack School

As requested. As promised. More fishclix! They go well with your Aquaman heroclix (and butter).

As before, the Aquaman symbol means they have the Finny Friends Ability (aquatic movement, and, as long as Aquaman's still in play, willpower and battle fury). They have JLA Team Ability to allow them free movement; Peter the Pufferfish lobbied hard for that.

Our previous little school of fishclix were primarily defensive. This one isn't.

The swordfish. Nothing fancy! It charges at you; it stabs you; it hurts. Unless you are Invulnerable or Impervious, of course.

The hammerhead. It charges at you; it hits you in the head, as comic book hammerheads do; it hurts. Same conditions as above.

Speaking of hurt ... although no one asked for it, I thought this set wouldn't be complete without a shark.

Don't be disappointed when you notice that the shark has a zero damage value; he's got Blades/Claws/Fangs as his attack power. I suppose, in this case, we can just call it "Fangs", eh?

Anyway, with his "Fangs" he can do more than a little damage, if he gets lucky. But, remember that, since he has no intrinsic damage value, he's vulnerable to having his Fangs countered by an opponent's Outwit; sharks aren't very smart.

The electric eels. Zap! They use Quake to hurt all adjacent opponents and send them flying. I considered it inappropriate to use Pulse Wave because that can harm those who are Invulnerable or Impervious. Eels cannot harm Superman, people!

And, oh, yes ... the whale.

The whale is the world's first Giant Pog, I suppose; it occupies four squares at a time. Sure, it's an easy target, but it's got Toughness. And with Charge plus an intrinsic damage value of 4 ... well, let's just say you should really try to avoid getting hit by the whale. Ouch.

Still waiting on the Candiru.

Nothing would make Black Manta squirm more than the thought of a fish swiming up his junk. :-D

Oh man.

Fear the whale pog.

Well, I don't think anyone would ever let the whale GET to them. But if the whale is on the board, it darned well better be your first order of business to remove it!

Meanwhile, Aquaman is swimming your way...

Now we can battle Black Manta in style. Life is worth living again.

The Hammerhead would be very effective against a certain Green Lantern.

Thanks for all the cool Aquaman content, Scipio!

But...

But The Hammerhead is a shark...

Scipio said...

Yes. It is. I know that.

But we needed a JAWS shark. That bites. Because hammerheads, you know; they just hit you.

That's how they get their nourishment.

The only thing that would make the whale awesomer is if it had the transporter ability, so that with a little imagination Aquaman could ride it to victory. (Preferably flanked by a squadron of other whales)

I'm dumb founded.

I completely forgot.
