  1. I just tried Captain America Leadership vs. Klaw solo and it was much easier and I defeated him (standard) first time. I think Klaw with Masters of Evil might actually be harder with more players. Possibly because of drawing 2 boost cards per attack, and some of the minions come into play with boost.
  2. My partner and I are fairly new to the game but have most of the packs. We've played against Rhino a few times with reasonable success using heroes from the core box- we just use the pre-set decks as we don't like deck building much. We went again Klaw (standard) yesterday with Captain America/Leadership and Miss Marvel/Protection (as they come in the packs) but really struggled and ended up losing to threat. We'd almost got through the encounter deck a 2nd time so we had one acceleration token and were about to get another. I was playing Cap and found him to be underwhelming. He's ok at thwarting but with the amount of enemies in play it feels he needed to be doing damage. My partner was playing Ms Marvel and found she was better at threat reduction but she wasn't really doing much to bring down threat or do damage either. I think we were always just trying to stay on top of the minion situation which left little spare to deal with the schemes and doing damage to the villain. Can anyone give any advice? Are these heroes just not good together or in 2 player? I've seen people say this game is too easy but I think it's pretty tough. Expert feels like it would impossible! Also, what 2 hero combinations might be good together for Klaw, using the pre-built decks?
  3. It's not dodgy. Hatchette do dozens if not hundreds of collectable magazine series, including the Warhammer 40k conquest which recently finished an 80 magazine run (I got a lot of it) and currently running Mortal Realms for Age of Sigmar. A lack of interest and the covid outbreak is probably why the 4 issue pilot was not carried on I guess.
  4. Did you get 4 issues in the delivery? Or just the first 2 for £1.99?
  5. Some places like boardgameextras and zatu in the UK have had some restocks this week.
  6. Some APs (Angmar Awakened and Dream Chaser at least) seem to have arrived in the UK in the last week - check out some of the usual stockists.
  7. You should get an award for all this work you're doing for the community!
  8. It sometimes takes several months or even more for items to arrive in the UK after the US gets them, so don't give up hope! I'm waiting on the Dreamchaser stuff too.
  9. Looks really nice. I'll try to give a spin at some point. A few thoughts: I don't recall Oaths and Corruption being part of Warcraft much. I think the Genesys gear, equipment and attachment system lends itself well to item enchantments and gem socketting. Long duration buff/debuffs are a core gameplay feature- perhaps those are something the system could be adapted for in a simple way. Faction/reputation benefits are quiet a big thing in WoW, perhaps those could be brought in somehow? Maybe access to certain skills or talents only if reputation if high enough. It would be nice to see a few of short, one-session scenarios that showcase the setting and the system.
  10. I think the Prequel era has a lot of opportunities for fun units and vehicles.
  11. Yeah I have - waiting for a response. I imagine it will be a while because of the Easter weekend & volume of tickets!
  12. If we see Prequel era factions, Yoda would fit in that case.
  13. Hey, I'm missing a speeder bike trooper (I have the arms) - I reckon you got mine!
  14. I believe bent plastic can be straightened out by dunking in very hot water and cooling in the right pose, if that's any help.
