Batman Miniature Game – the Brave and the Bold

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 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.

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.

Unboxing the Suicide Squad Game box – Batman Miniature Game

suicide-squadNa 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.

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.
