Searching through the mass of HeroClix miniatures it quickly became apparent that it was going to take “a long time” to find the dozen or so figures I needed. So I foolishly decided to kill two birds with one stone and sort the miniatures while I went along.
This is what it looked like about halfway done.
I had previously started to sort the miniatures into their appropriate release sets but this time I decided to group them by their teams affiliations. WizKids have made this easy by putting team affiliation logos right there on the base. This has left me with about a dozen plastic bags worth of teams and two huge loose piles of figures, the non team specific ones and a whopping pile of bits where the mini has come away from the base. These are mainly the flying characters which come shipped separate from the their base. Sorting them out is going to be a couple evenings worth of Googling and gluing.
Right now though I have found all the minis I need and have a small collection of other cool looking minis that I’ve verified against the S2 Character Sheet Builder. So when I the mood gets me all I need to do is grab a bag of miniatures and start making some cards for that team. Justice League is up next and then I’ll switch to the Marvel universe and have a look in at the Avengers.
All that will have to wait though because tomorrow night me and the boys are going to roll some dice.
