We’ve been fans of Mike Mignola’s Hellboy comics for a long time. We also enjoyed both of Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy movies, and we’ve even got a Hellboy Funko Pop figure sitting on the shelf at home.
So when we saw that the WizKids HorrorClix/HeroClix Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. Seven-Figure Action Pack was on sale online for just $9 a little while ago (plus shipping), it was kind of a no-brainer. Especially since we already had the more expensive but still cool HorrorClix Alien vs Predator collector’s sets.
Now granted, the HorrorClix (paid link) miniatures game was discontinued around 2008, but that’s just long enough to give it some retro cachet in our opinion. Plus with a rebooted Hellboy movie coming out in April of 2019 and a new Hellboy board game slated to drop sometime before then, it seems like the omens are right for Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. to escape the confines of their factory-sealed HorrorClix box and fulfill their destiny on the tabletop.
In our last HorrorClix gameplay video, we pitted a pack of Predators against their old nemeses, the Alien Xenomorphs. This time around, it’s Hellboy and his band of paranormal heroes who are battling the savage sport-hunters from outer space.
The scenario takes place in the mysterious Zinco factory on the edge of town, where Hellboy, Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman discover an Elder Predator, a Shuriken Predator and a human Apprentice Hunter stalking a group of hapless townsfolk
Will Hellboy’s Right Hand of Doom crush the violent space aliens, or will the Predators win themselves a fresh demon head for their trophy room? Just watch our latest gameplay video to find out.
Also, stay tuned for our next HorrorClix battle report, which will feature Hellboy and some new allies trying to save the world from a terrifying mystery opponent. There will be tentacles. Lots of tentacles.
