Popular Modern Age Sets Turning Golden In July

The new HeroClix 2014 Set-Rotation schedule has been released.  If you are unfamiliar with what this is, it’s basically a list of all the sets that will be converting this year from “Modern Age ” to “Golden Age”.

What’s the difference?

Basically all newly released sets of HeroClix are considered “Modern Age” until they end up on the Set-Rotation schedule after a few years and they then become “Golden Age” and are considered “retired” for tournament play.

For you new players or players who just play casually with friends, the difference between the two doesn’t matter and doesn’t affect game play in any way.  The only time you need to know or care about the distinction is if your going to play at a local venue or a convention tournament of some sort.

For example.. your local venue is hosting a  – Modern Age 500 point tournament.  Unfortunately, (as of July 1st) you would no longer be able to use any of the figures from the sets below because they are now considered “Golden Age”
