HeroClix: WizKids' simplified game of miniatures, featuring your favourite licensed characters from popular franchises like Marvel, DC and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Once again, they are expanding their Marvel line-up with X-Men: Xavier's School.

Set to release in February, this expansion will come with a variety of separate packs containing figures based on the Headmasters, The Age of Apocalypse, Xavier's School and X Factor comic series - totalling over 70 figures.

The new expansion will contain 25 new ID cards, a feature which has been used in previous X-Men HeroClix expansions. It will also introduce the new student and headmaster gameplay mode.

They have already teased two new title characters, as well as characters from Blue Team, Gold Team and Magneto's X-Men. Also announced for the pack are Phat, Goldballs, Mondo and Surge (who chooses 'Goldballs' as their superhero name?)

To coincide with the release, comes X-Men Xavier’s School Fast Forces set, which will include new dials, which allow players to create a 300-point team. Fast Forces includes the characters, Cyclops, Beast, Iceman and Jean Grey, and newcomers,Rusty and Skids (again with the weird names).

Finally, it wouldn't be an expansion without all new dice and tokens. The X-Men Xavier’s School Dice & Token Pack will come with two X-Men themed dice as well as 6 action tokens, with graphics of the Time-displaced X-Men
