View Full Version : How 2 kill firelord?
Hi! As some know already, i have a tourney coming up this sunday. A 200 point all marvel team. Id really like to win but i know i'll have tough competition competing against firelord teams. What id like to know is how to bring down such teams that will be using E firelord or R firelord? I dont have a firelord,cyclops and i only have a R Bullseye. I of course have other figs but the list is too long to put here so i just want to know if there are any suggestions you can give me before my tourney?
try 1: Ultron (e), Doombot (e) and 2 shield medics. Keep them in a line towards your end of the map. In the meantime, try Vulture (v) carrying Doc Ock (e) up to firelord to tie him up once he's in range, so he can't run back to a medic.
Ultron should be able to hurt him, and so should Doombot using the Sinister syndicate ability. The medics are there to up the damage of an energy explosion attack from either Ultron or Doombot.
If you want a little outwit to turn off that range combat expert, you could try deleting the energy explosion route and adding a cheap outwitter, like Black panther (R).
or try 2: 1 long range taxi, jean grey and a she-hulk. TK one flier up via Jeannie, then taxi 1 carries She-hulk up to taxi 2, taxi 2 then carries she-hulk
within range for her charge attack. BOOM. four damage. Six if she picks up some heavy junk along the way. You might want to include a Blackcat or Scarlet Witch to help your odds of hitting on this first and very important) roll.
Firelord is a real wimp if you hit him fast and keep him away from medics
Hi, this is Kamus, from France...
Against Firelord I suggest a caracter able to do 3 ou 4 clics of damage with shooting in movement power at long range (10' like Human Torch V for 73 pts, Hawkeye for 64 pts or of course Cyclops Exp or Vet for 68 or 78 pts).
Firelords power decrease very quickly after beiing hitten for the first time.
Of course, you should take a Taxi to increase is movement...
Expecting your understood my poor english...;)
They've just posted an article on this at the wizkids website...
try this link
or browse to it in the "Game Resources" area of the Marvel HC sub-site.
hope that helps!
Use Blades claws and fangs a couple of good roles on firelords appaling low defence will kill him!!
Good ones to use: Unique Elektra, Blade, Spiral, Logan, Sabretooth
Thanks for your help and suggestions but 1 thing id like to point out to omegaman is that using ultron in a 200 point game might be too costly.
This might be a little costly for a 200, but it took down Firelord:
R Thor and V Hawkeye.
Get Thor to taxi Hawkeye and use Running Shot. Then have Hawkeye attack normally (or if absolute need be, Running Shot). Keep running circles around him and use the 27 pts. you have left to find a way to hold off the other figs.
Yeah, I'm prepared to face Firelords too in the tournament on Sunday. And not forgetting, Invisible Girl since its a IC/CT tourney. I know I'm being a hypocrite by saying I hate Firelord. I mean the fella does a sweet 5 clicks of damage no matter what rank he is. And he's cheap and high defense too. So I tell myself, I'll not put a Firelord inside my team. I like the challenge. Its too easy to win with a Firelord. =)
Hope my team works. Wish me luck!
My method for dealing with Firelord is to MC him with Profesor X. Veteran has the best distance, while Unique has the best attack. Destroy the team with their own Firelord, and a Firelord without a medic and support team to back him up will be easily defeated.
If you have her, Unique Spiral for 56 pts is a very effective Firelord killer... May be hard to break that first roll of 8 you need but if you do... B/C/F, then Flurry to B/C/F again... IF firelord survives, put some barrier up between him and his medic or simply make another attack and take the medic out
