Na na na na na na na na Batman! Well I finally received my copy of the Suicide Squad game box, with the pre-order only Batman (Ben Affleck version). I really like the DC Comics universe, and since the miniatures from Knight Models are so nicely sculpted I waited a long time to get a nice two faction starter box for the Batman Miniature Game.
The Suicide game box is a bargain. It contains the full rulebook with some extra Suicide Squad missions, and the actual game pieces include 2 full colour card buildings, 4 card lamppost markers, 4 sewer markers, 8 “take the lead” counters, 7 mission objective markers and 4 six sided dice.
Now have a look at the miniatures. Included are 13 (in the case of the pre order version 14) nicely done metal miniatures, which are all sculpted to represent the characters of the Suicide Squad movie. You get two basic crews. On the one hand, there’s the Suicide Squad (obviously), which contains Deadshot, Slipknot, Killer Croc, Diablo, Harley Quinn, Katana and Cpt. Boomerang. On the other hand you get Joker’s crew, which consists of Joker and 5 henchmen (Goat Head Priest, Eyeball Man, Panda Man and Grin Twins). In my case I also got the free Batman miniature (the Ben Affleck version from the movie). To get some backup for him, I also ordered Batgirl as his sidekick.
All the miniatures are cast with a really high quality. Only the mould lines need some clean up, but overall they look almost like the movie cast. I will show the assembled and painted minis in later posts, which I will probably start with Batman. The bases, which are included, are pre-sculpted plastic ones. You just have to fill in the gaps where the miniatures are placed in the end.
Overall I can just recommend this box highly to anybody who thought about start playing the Batman Miniature Game. The content is really worth the price, and the quality is nice. You can get yourself a nice 2 fraction startup for the game for a reasonable price.
