Thor, Valkyrie, Loki, and Hela have arrived in Marvel Crisis Protocol!
I’ve been doing some coverage of every expansion that’s been coming out for MCP, and in this latest wave of releases we finally get Thor, who is both an Avenger and an Asgardian. This gives him some really cool playable options. Valkyrie is also here, benefitting from that awesome Asgardian ability to get extra power each turn!
Additionally, we get Loki and Hela – and while they are typically Evil, they are absolutely gorgeous sculpts and fantastic characters to bring into the game here! Hera in particular, is my favorite! Loki also comes with the Mind Gem, the first Infinity Stone in the game, which costs 1 additional threat, and counts as a team member when it comes to Roster Building!
My local store didn’t get Vision of Bucky in yet, so I’ll be on the look out for those soon! For now, it’s time to get painting!
So we’re finally getting more expansions for Marvel Crisis Protocol! I was a bit late picking these up, but I’m happy to finally have them and decided in my recent videos to do more than just an unboxing, but rather I’d also build them, since sometimes assembling these can be moderately difficult to some newcomers.
Shuri and Okoye are a 2-pack, and help you round out your Wakandans, if you were looking to put together a Wakandan list. Along with Black Panther and Killmonger, these two complete all current Wakandans available for Marvel Crisis Protocol. Okoye is my favorite from the Black Panther film, but in the game she seems to be a competent, lower priced hero. Shuri on the other hand, while more expensive, is more of a support character that can likely help out any team regardless of team affiliation.
Venom is the first expansion we’ve seen for MCP that doesn’t actually belong to any pre-existing team affiliation. And while he does have a special card that works specifically with Spider-Man, he seems more or less designed to work well in any build. He is a bit expensive, and larger than most, but also is very strong and has the ability to heal himself. To make up for that, he is also one of the slowest characters in game, so if you use him you’ll have to take your time getting into position, or consider team tactic cards that will help your movement.
With all the new expansions already revealed, and more showing up on social media all the time, Marvel Crisis Protocol looks more and more fun each month!
With a growing focus on tabletop terrain for both Legion and RPG needs, I’ve been always on the lookout for new terrain to review. Having worked with LV-427 Designs before, I was delighted to see their re-designed modular corridors, which are now larger and more compatible with games like Legion than before!
The Hangar Bay was the first or the new large rooms that I’ve seen. I was really excited to see rooms of this size because the first time I saw their terrain it was primarily corridors and smaller rooms, which work great for the RPG, but not as good for Legion. Larger rooms make it easier to fit and move larger units around the game board!
The Hibernation Chamber and Conference room each feature a series of 4 interconnected tiles to make one large room. They each also have a removable centerpiece, helping make them versatile and perfect for both role play functions and also for battling inside a station or destroyer!
