Greetings, HeroClix Fans!
Few, if any, of the characters and creatures in the WizKids HeroClix: Undead Gravity Feed set have a more notorious reputation than Death itself!

Hailing from the Ghost Realm, this force of nature can be truly lethal when surrounded by other fiends that also possess the Monster keyword. Death’s first trait, Harbinger of Death, is a great finishing move that occurs no matter where Death happens to be on the map. When an opposing character takes damage from an attack made by a character with the Monster keyword, it will also take 1 unavoidable damage after resolutions – but if it is not KO’d, will immediately heal 1 click. This fatal touch that can give any opposing figure that one last click to KO will make Death a very popular presence for WizKids Undead teams.
Outside of Death’s global interfering, we see a durable close combat horror. The second trait describes Death’s Giant Scythe, which grants Blades/Claws/Fangs at an extended range with Giant Reach: 2.
Your opponents will fear Death most on click 1, as this phantom creeps along with Sidestep while sporting a defense value of 18 backed by Invincible to reduce damage. Just in case the unyielding Death happens to roll a low number on Blades… with its trademark weapon, Precision Strike will ensure that 1 damage still gets through reducers and that the attack is more difficult to evade.
After the first two clicks of Invincible, Death shows Regeneration for the rest of the dial to help Death keep looming on the battlefield. Even though the dial’s combat values gradually decline, your opponents will still fear the threat of Death at the end of its dial as clicks 5 & 6 feature Exploit Weakness for Death to continue claiming victims.
Remember that since Death possesses the Monster keyword itself, any attacks made by Death also trigger the Harbinger trait for an extra click of damage if it will finish off the target of the attack!
