Partially inspired by thecasualoblivion's Marvel test tournament, I have been making what I call "theme teams," which are a (100-point) team made of figures with the same faction. Given that I have very limited repeat figures, and I don't have all of the figures, I have concocted these teams: X-Men: Gambit x2, Beast x2 Brotherhood: Magneto, Pyro x2, Mystique Marvel Knights: Punisher, Ghost Rider, Western Ghost Rider, Elektra, Daredevil Sinister Syndicate: Shooter Venom, Electro x2, Striker Venom, S2 Starter Doctor Octopus with New Goblin and Electro in backups However, to give the other teams a chance, I removed Shooter Venom and switched things up a bit, so now we have: Electro x3, New Goblin, Striker Venom with S2 Starter Doctor Octopus in backups Avengers: Captain America, Avengers Spider-Man x3, Thor Hidden: Abigor x2, Wallow, Blackheart
What do you think of them? Also, soon I'll add some Star Wars and Transformers teams and make a tournament. Thanks thecasualoblivion!
I'm back! I have modified the original teams slightly, and added ten more, so here is the final entry list:
X-Men: Gambit x2, Beast x2 Brotherhood: Magneto, Pyro, Sabretooth, Mystique Marvel Knights: Punisher, Ghost Rider, Western Ghost Rider, Elektra, Daredevil Sinister Syndicate: Striker Venom, Electro x3, Green Goblin with New Goblin in back-ups Avengers: Captain America, Avengers Spider-Man x3, Thor Hidden: Abigor x2, Wallow, Blackheart Team Darth Vader: S4 Darth Vader, Ghost Rider, S3 Stormtrooper, Wookiee Commando Team Spider-Man: S2 Starter Spider-Man, S2 Starter Thing, Thor, Utapau Warrior Team Wolverine: S1 Starter Spider-Man, S1 Starter Wolverine, Count Dooku, Emperor Team Autobots: SOP Fire Truck, Excellion, Omnicon x3 with Gold-Based SOP in back-ups Team Landmine: Landmine, Minicon x3, Hotshot Team Battle Ravage: Battle Ravage x3, Starscream, White Decepticlone Team Hulk: S2 Starter Hulk, Kit Fisto, Utapau Warrior, Endor Scout, Wicket, Clone Pilot Team Crumplezone: Crumplezone, Ransack, Scorponok, Decepticlone, AT-ST Driver with Insecticon x3 in back-ups Team Skywarp: Skywarp, Rodimus, S2 Starter Doctor Octopus, S4 Starter Han Solo with Heavy Stormtrooper in back-ups Team Rebels: Admiral Ackbar, S5 Starter Chewbacca, Captain America with Han Solo on Hoth in back-ups
A final thing to note, before the match summaries, is that I play by the house rule that you can attack with a figure, then move other figures, then attack with them. This way, you can shoot with Cap, then move other figures to protect him without impairing your aiming.
Team Wolverine (1-0) vs. X-Men (0-1): Team Wolverine wins! Team Wolverine steals a Beast, and it looks like they will win. Then several revives in a row from Gambit make it seem like the tables have completely turned. But Beast with the Emperor on his back is actually quite stable, so it winds down to Gambit vs. Posessed Beast. Gambit can't make it, so Beast wins it all!
Sinister Syndicate (1-0) vs. Team Landmine (0-1): Team Sinister Syndicate wins! This wasn't even fair. On the first turn, Green Goblin killed Hotshot. Landmine soon followed. Even though Venom practically suicided, the Sinister Syndicate only lost one Electro and Venom. I actually think the SS is the best team here. Let's find out, shall we?
Marvel Knights (1-0) vs. Brotherhood (0-1): Marvel Knights wins! At first, it looked like the Brotherhood was winning. Sabretooth wouldn't stay down, and he wreaked havoc. But then a vengeance took out Mystique and Elektra and Daredevil finished the job, even though Magneto and Sabretooth stood up.
Autobots (1-0) vs. Hidden (0-1): The Autobots win! Blackheart got taken out before the Hidden got any kills, and Wallow was shot down by Excelion. Even though the Fire Truck came up black, two Abigors can't do anything except die (and force Excellion to sacrifice one of three remaining Omnicons).
Rebels (1-0) vs. Battle Ravage (0-1): The Rebels win! Cap and Chewie killed the Battle Ravages pretty quickly, even with one white. Chewie dies, but a white means the death of the Ravage that took him down. Starscream and Decepticlone can't beat Cap and Ackbar, especially when they both turn up black. Hoth Han isn't even brought into play.
Hulk (1-0) vs. Darth Vader (0-1): Team Hulk wins! This was a really interesting game. Darth Vader's team advanced Ghost Rider early on, with the threat of vengeance and all. They also took out Wicket, Utapau Warrior, and Kit Fisto early on and with no deaths. Then Endor Scout sacrificed himself to kill Ghost Rider, and Hulk killed a Darth Vader who came up black. So this was Stormtrooper and Wookiee Commando vs. Hulk and Clone Pilot. Stormtrooper killed Clone Pilot, who came up white. Hulk then moved to put Stormtrooper between him and Wookiee Commando (I'm really proud of myself for this move). Wookie Commando moved, but he still couldn't kill Hulk. Hulk curved around back, and tried to get a double. He failed, only killing Wookiee Commando. Stormtrooper then moved closer, about to fire the fatal shot. Only it wasn't fatal. Stormtrooper wasn't quite close enough, or at the best angle, to kill Hulk. Then Hulk punched his lights out.
Crumplezone (1-0) vs. Avengers (0-1): Team Crumplezone wins! This match was close. The Avengers even got an Evade, but Ransack stood up three times and Captain America died early. In the end, it was Spidey x2 vs. Ransack, Crumplezone, and AT-ST Driver. A Spidey took out Crumplezone, but he sacrificed AT-ST and stood up. The other one killed Ransack, who was white. Neither Ransack nor Crumplezone was in range to kill the second Spidey, but the first one went down. Spider-Man couldn't pull off a double, so Ransack took him out.
Spider-Man (1-0) vs. Skywarp (0-1): Team Spider-Man wins! This was just sad. Team Spider-Man didn't lose a single figure. Early on, Spidey "sniped" Skywarp, who came up white, only to be killed immediately afterward by Utapau Warrior. Doc Ock killed Thing (white) and Han Solo killed Spidey (also white). By this point, the game was over, especially when Rodimus came up black.
I doubt anyone will really read this, but just to prove my defiance, and because it's fun to do the tourneys and write about them, I'll post it anyway. I'll probably get the next round in a week or so.
