THEME TEAM: Mystical Machine Gun

As regular readers of this blog (I know you’re out there – thanks for your support) may have noticed, my output has dropped off a lot over the past few months (life reasons, let’s not get into it here), and I may be ever so slightly, the teeniest smidge behind on character summary articles. To…

CHARACTER SUMMARY: MAGNETO (Max Eisenhardt)

This is a big one, and I, like many others, was intrigued to see how AMG would represent Magneto in the game. He is, after all, extremely powerful in Marvel lore; so have AMG managed to meet our expectations and given us a powerful yet balanced character? Is Magneto one of the best minis to…

CHARACTER SUMMARY: BEAST (Henry McCoy)

And now we come to it, the last of the X-folk for the time being. This mini was a joy to paint (except for the inside of that metallic column, urgh), but is Beast a joy to play? Let’s see… STAMINA – Beast has a nice chunky 6 stamina. MOVEMENT – Medium, but on a…

CHARACTER SUMMARY: WOLVERINE (James Logan Howlett)

He’s the best at what he does, and blah blah blah blah blah – you know the score! Like Star Wars, clickbait and coffee shops, Wolverine is everywhere; but does he justify his place on the gaming table? Let’s see… STAMINA – Wolverine starts off strong with a whopping 7 stamina which, considering his threat…

CHARACTER SUMMARY: STORM (Ororo Munroe)

It’s time to take a look at the Uncanny X-Men’s second affiliation leader, and on/off wife of T’Challa, the Black Panther – Storm. What does Ororo bring to the table? Let’s see… STAMINA – 5, not as good as 6, but not as bad as 4… MOVEMENT – An entirely average medium. SIZE – 2,…

CHARACTER SUMMARY: CYCLOPS (Scott Summers)

At long last we have made it to the mutants, and where better to start than the mono-ocular target of sibilant alliteration, the X-Men field team leader – Cyclops. What does the great visor’d one have to offer? Let’s see… STAMINA – With 6 stamina on his healthy side, Scott is no slouch in the…

CHARACTER SUMMARY: BULLSEYE (Benjamin Poindexter)

After what seems like several decades away from my keyboard I have returned triumphantly to discuss the next character in line, namely Bullseye. That’s all the intro you’re getting for now, let’s take a look! STAMINA – Benjamin has a respectable stamina of 5. MOVEMENT – A massively human medium. SIZE – A thoroughly human…

Year 1 Community Poll Results

In early November I sent out into the community ether a blog post with 20 questions pertaining to year 1 of the game, and gave readers the chance to vote on their favourite things. After just over a month of the polls being open, the results are in. For those of you who didn’t see…

CHARACTER SUMMARY: DAREDEVIL (Matt Murdock)

A firm fan favourite, the Man Without Beer Fear is, er, here… Sorry, bad rhymery. Let’s just get straight into his card before I come out with any further nonsense. STAMINA – 5, nice and solid. MOVEMENT – Another solitary tear runs down the cheek of each MCP player worldwide as we get yet another…

Year 1 Community Poll

So here we are, year 1’s releases of MCP have wrapped up with the Criminal Syndicate and year 2 approaches, bringing with it X-Men goodness and who knows what else. I thought that it would be interesting to send out a poll to see what the community has been enjoying from the game over the…
