Waller´s orders this evening were clear. Project X should get their hands on a Venom probe. Get in, steal the venom and get out with it again. A quiet simple plan disregarding the fact that Bane and his mercenaries were the ones defending the Venom… But its “Suicide Squad” for a reason.
Its been a while since I last played Batman Miniatrure Game (or BMG from now on) and since Knight Models dropped the 2nd edition shortly we thought about getting back in the game and write an aar.
We decidet to go with a reputation value of 300 and not using any strategies to get back in the game easy.
Since I was in desperate need for some henchmen for my BMG crew I bought myself the new Batman starter crew. Knight Models new range of high quality resin models started of with some new crew starter. For the Brave and the Bold the box contained a new Batman (Arkham Asylum version) which finally got smoke and some really great combat abilitys (counter attack and mixed combat style). The henchmen consits of three Arkham guardsmen one armed with a expendable baton (reach), one with a shotgun and finally a guy with an assault rifle (lots of blood damage).
the new Arkham Asylum Batman
fits in quiet well with Batgirl
The miniature are all high quality and really nice casted resin. They are a bit smaller then Knight Models previous metal range but that does not bother me. I painted them using a quick and easy wash and layer paintjob to get them tabletop ready fast enough only Batman recieving some more attantion on his greenish armour.
ltr: shotgun, baton, assault rifle
Since I want to play Batman more often with the 2nd edition rules I finally could use my already finished Batgirl model to get them to around 200rep. They alredy announced a new Batgirl rebirth model which will find the way into my collection for shure.
To free up some space on my working table, I decided to finish up Katana and Killer Croc from the Batman Miniature Game. I’ve been working on them way too long and now i got several other projects, which need the space.
Although both of them are really cool minis, Katana was a pain in the ass to assemble.
I managed to finish my 6pdr gun for my british Bolt Action force to get some more anti tank value. The gun and crew is a Blacktree model. I just added some stuff from the Warlod Games plastic sprue. The base is self made and came out way too big in the end for gaming purposes. I added a road sign and tree stumps to cover the big space. To give it a bit of flair I painted an “HD” on the roadsign. The 51st Highland Division got their nickname “Highway Decorators” because they painted their initials on signs all over the places they went through.
the crazy and the good
Today I finished two of the girls for my Batman Miniature Game crews. Harley Quinn which either can be part of the Suicide Squad or a Sidekick for the Joker crew, and Batgirl which is the first support for my Batman crew. It was a pleasure to paint some brighter colours for a change. Both of them are nicely sculpted, but a bit difficult to paint. In Harleys case because of all the small details which are important to capture the character from the movie. With Batgirl on the other hand, mostly in blue and yellow, you have to be careful not to make her look like some toy.
I finished Batman and Deadshot from the Suicide Squad game box. Since I will mainly play a Batman crew and I want to paint these nice miniatures in pairs of two, I chose to paint Deadshot aswell.
