Halo ActionClix: The Covenant

Halo ActionClix: Launch Countdown - The Covenant

This year at PAX 2007, Godfather X and I had the opportunity to sit down with one of the guys at Wizkids and interview him about the Halo ActionClix being released this September. Turns out we had some technical difficulties with our microphone at that moment and we lost the audio interview. Either way believe me when I say Halo ActionClix are absolutely amazing.

There will be over 80 different pieces for every entity in the Halo universe. The detail on the figurines are stunning. Halo ActionClixis a collectible tabletop miniatures game.
Tabletop players should be familiar with the award-winning Clix miniatures game engine. Gamers will be able to purchase Halo ActionClix in 2 different sized booster packs that will include preview content of Halo 3.

Take a look at some of the Covenant miniatures:

Serving as the main infantry of the Covenant army, individually the Grunts are fairly weak and are most effective when attacking in groups. In Halo ActionClix, Grunts will similarly be weak on their own but with grenades they will still stand a chance against more powerful foes.

As the next step up from the Grunts, Jackals serve a more defensive/long-range role in the Covenant’s forces. In Halo ActionClix, as in the video games, Jackals can also come equipped with shields, making them one of the tougher characters to take down.

The newest addition to the Covenant’s army, the Brutes are also unquestionably one of its toughest factions. Physically resilient and extremely strong, their Halo ActionClix counterparts will definitely be a force on your tabletop.

As one of its oldest and most respected members, the Elites hold a special place within the Covenant’s hierarchy. This, coupled with their excellent fighting skills and superior military minds, make them one of the biggest threats to the Covenant’s enemies. Halo ActionClix’s Elites are no different, and will come equipped with a variety of weapons, from Plasma Rifles to Energy Swords.
