Review: Thor's Mighty Chariot

Thors Might Chariot ReviewYou just can’t keep a good game down! Heroclix returns from the land of canceled games and I, for one, couldn’t be happier about that. Heroclix players who attend the San Diego comic con were thrilled to learn that Thor’s Mighty Chariot was available at the con and is now available for pre-order. The much anticipated Hammer of Thor set will be coming out this fall.

So with this great news, here is a review of the first official preview character - Thor’s mighty Chariot.

There is a lot of stuff going on here! First off, let’s discuss the abilities of Thor’s Chariot. The transporter, duo Attack, and indomitable abilities are all accessible to this character. This gives the character some nice options. Transporter, of course, will allow goldilocks to use the move and attack ability and bring a teammate along for the ride. The duo attack will allow the son of Odin to make two attacks on his turn. Indomitable will keep Thor and the goats from having to take pushing damage. These abilities open up many strategies for Thor. However, these abilities are subject to outwit and can be countered so don’t count on them being useable each round.

Thors Mighty Chariot dial

Next up, let’s look at the powers. Thor’s chariot is loaded with powers. Standard powers include: charge, running shot, super strength, quake, poison, invulnerability, regeneration, toughness, super senses, enhancement and exploit weakness.

But wait! Thor’s Chariot also has four Special Powers: Butting Heads, Hooves and Horns, Battle-Forged, and Drag.

These special powers give Thor’s Mighty Chariot some interesting options. Butting heads is a powerful way to use force blast; normally force blast pushes a figure away from your character equal to the die roll you make. This power allows you to not only push them away, it forces them to take damage equal to the number of spaces it passes thru as well as any additional damage provided by slamming into a wall. This could be devastating! I’m guessing we may see an errata on this power.

Hooves and Horns is pretty straight forward. It grants Blades and Claws but with an interesting twist. You get to decide if you want to replace the damage after you make the roll. This is enough to make Wolverine cry with envy. Battle-forged is a combo power of impervious and defend. Impervious protects Thor and Defend makes him more of a team player.

Drag is interesting. Automatically breaking away from opponents is always nice, but being able to take them with you while causing them to take damage, that’s just plain nasty!

Thor’s Mighty Chariot also has two traits. The first trait states this character must start its base completely in the starting area. It can also make ranged attacks to any character it can draw a line of fire to. Lastly, it can carry up to two friendly characters when using the carry ability.

i might get one for the new darkseid

Posted by: heroclix is fun on 10/1/2011 9:04:19 PM
i want it so bad

Posted by: heroclix fan on 9/27/2011 7:17:02 PM
why would you want to use b/c/f when it hits with a 9 to begin with?

Posted by: jack on 7/1/2010 2:42:03 PM
@gethralkin i have the chariot and my friend has the world's finest. most of the time world's finest wins.

Posted by: Lantern28145 on 4/4/2010 8:08:13 PM
yeah, i played in a 500 point tourny and beat it with a mixed gotham city team, betwean batman from JL and robin from CR with there outwit and two-face and the riddlers masterminding the street thugs, i didnt even lose one figure.

Posted by: waotan on 10/21/2009 1:57:58 AM
I'd like to see TMC go up against the World's Finest. That would be an interesting one-on-one (or is that one-on-two?) ultimate duel.

Posted by: gethralkin on 8/16/2009 2:56:39 AM
Butting Heads shouldn't require actual eratta. Knockback damage only occurs when the affected character hits blocking terrain or a wall (or the ground if a non-flyer on elevated). Targets of Butting Heads with Charge, doublebase, the Giant Size ability or Colossal abilities won't ever be affected, and those with Combat Reflexes won't take any damage.

Playing against a Batman's allies team could be hard other than that seems solid

Posted by: Matthew Donahoe on 8/1/2009 9:31:30 PM
I'm never very excited about colossal clix, this being the exception since it also heralded in the long awaited "return" of clix. I think they're cool to own for the sculpts. World's Finest being my fav, Dark Phoenix close second. This being said I haven't heard much favor in regards to the sculpt. The powers are cool though. I'll see for myself in August as soon as Amazon ships mine.

Thank you for the review. I would have liked to see a battle report, how he actually did when you played with him.

Posted by: lunar on 8/1/2009 9:38:36 AM
Ordered 2 on Amazon.
A friend has one and has played it a few times and is raving about it!

Posted by: Tom Price on 7/30/2009 3:59:03 PM
I used the chariot in a 1000-point match last night. Didn't use any feats on it as I just wanted to see what it could do. (The -1 attack penalty from Haymaker does not apply since the chariot has the duo symbol...) Needless to say, the chariot was the biggest target on the map and was the first figure KO'ed. My opponent's Outwitters had it locked down long enough for him to swarm Thor and his goats with some big hitters. There are a lot of good things going for the chariot, though but you'll have to find a way to overcome its susceptibility to Outwit.

This week we're having a 1000 point match with no one under 100 points, wish I had this here for that matchup - win, lose or draw, he'll be a lot of fun to field. Awesome article.

Posted by: VG9 on 7/29/2009 8:39:47 PM
i will be playing him as soon as i receive him. we have a 1000 pt. match coming up soon. i hope i can get him. and if neca really takes over, we can expect sculpts like this in abundance. woo-hoo.

thanks, Rob

The Chariot has possibilities, but I am not a fan of introducing vehicles into the game. It is just another thing to confuse new players and make the game even more complicated than it already is. However, it is a nice sculpt and I wouldn't mind owning one even if I never get the chance to play it.

Posted by: Azrael0626 on 7/29/2009 4:37:42 PM
I like the review; can't wait for my figure to arrive! I'm still a little confused on that ranged attack trait. It states: "...may make ranged combat attacks against any opposing characters it [can draw] a line of fire to." First of all, doesn't any ranged attack work that way? You can't make *any* ranged attack without LoF, yeah? Also, does that mean the Chariot can fire out of adjacency? Good news: it seems to read that it can make a ranged attack to an adjacent character! Lastly, I agree with the others: in a 500-point match, Thor gets tossed, even with Regen. Against Worlds Finest? toss the dice--who connects first? But, man-oh-man.....what a sculpt! I cannot wait for my next Myths & Legends match!

Posted by: muskielodge on 7/29/2009 1:05:50 PM
I think my only real and very small problem is that it doesn't have Power Cosmic for a 500pt single figure. Granted it does have Indomitable but Power Cosmic is the power perfect for "god-level" figures and this character definately fits that bill. That's my only sore point in a fantastic looking piece...can't wait to play him sometime in the future.

Posted by: Mocker on 7/29/2009 12:15:36 PM
I actually dig the enhancement. Imagine who those two passengers on this ride could be and then start thinking of how you could use that enhancement! Put Winter Soldier on that ride and witness a 70 point character making a 6 damage attack at range only to be whisked away by the chariot. I like the possibilities.

Posted by: bigdaddyhub on 7/29/2009 11:31:06 AM
I realy like his dial, although I dont understand the enhancement. Great Review!

Posted by: P0W3R_C0SM1C_79 on 7/29/2009 11:14:52 AM
Pretty cool. It will be interesting to see how the Mighty Chariot plays with many of the Asgardian generics in the set.

There's a few feats that could be great on the Mighty Chariot, too - Armour Piercing for the Poison, Drag, Butting Heads, Sidestep for duo attacks, possibly Whirlwind for Butting Heads, and of course Haymaker.

I wish that the Mighty Chariot was a giant, just so that we'd have a figure with special icons on every combat value. :D

Posted by: James on 7/29/2009 10:05:52 AM
He's spent his points on defend, and the ability to carry 2 allies so you know you don't want to play him alone. This is strictly for 600 points and up.

Posted by: mr-coffin on 7/29/2009 9:08:56 AM
Don't forget the awesome extra on the FB still doesn't knockback chargers!
And Enhancement is a waste of a power in a game where yhou only have Thor!

Posted by: gcrawford on 7/29/2009 9:01:26 AM
Great article!
I think it's an amazing piece, if not for the size alone. It will be fun to play. Hopefully it will be available to the rest of the world so we can play with the chariot too!

Posted by: Henk on 7/29/2009 4:12:30 AM
yeah Its pretty much established that Thor's mighty chariot is fairly boned in a 500 point match.

Loved the Article its nice tidy and a great reference.

Posted by: Cooper99 on 7/29/2009 1:44:36 AM
I thinks its pretty frail for its cost but what the heck, it looks fun to play and heck I wouldn't mind having one displayed on my shelf. :) this easily is one of the BEST sculpts in clix I've ever seen.
