Batman Miniature Game AAR – Bane vs Suicide Squad

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.

The Crews:

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.

Pulp Alley – Villains of Medusa

+++Nobody expected that operation Sea Lion will end like that. The Prime Minister is missing, German troops spread over England and the war in western Europe seems to be over. For Oberst Dr. Ilsa Faust and her secret Agency “Projekt Medusa” the situation could not be more advantageous. The time to seperate the project and all achievents from the germans has come. They now can act in the shadows, even more than before, blaming the germans for everything that they have to do to praise the great old ones.+++

Intimidating, clever, detemined. The leader of “Projekt Medusa”, D. Ilsa Faust is just as cruel she is beautiful.

After a long break of painting 32mm miniatures I did the first one for my Pulp Alley league.  I wrote a little background for an agency which came out like a mix between a Chthulu cult and Hydra.

Team Yankee AAR – Soviet vs West Germans

Attacking the airfield

To reduce NATO air superiority, Mayor Solts T64 company was ordered to attack an air base around the outskirts of Bremen. The airfield then should be used as a forward operaition post and supply line for troops advancing further west.
Solts company spearheadet deep into anemy territory to get as close as possible to the air base to start the attack. The company was dividet into two parts to attack from both sides of the runway.
Solt uses his binoculars to scaned the surrounding for enem tanks. Operation command informed him that the West Germans deployed Leopard 2 tanks and jaguar tank destroyers near the base, a threat he should not underestimate.
“Comrades, I see one of the big tanks near that building ahead of us. Tanks and tank hunters are main targets for now. Everbody, attack!”
With a lout roaring the T64 advanced forward, followed by their AA support while the BMP scout sections prepare to unleash their ATGMs.

[Review] Butlers Printed Models – Spandrel ATGM/BRDM 2

I always look for little or less known companies and compare their work to that of the big ones. It happens quite often that such smaller brand impress me with the miniatures they make.

Since I play Team Yankee, I search for alternatives for Battlefronts resin cast. The resin casts are indeed really nice, but I am not a big fan of resin on tanks. It’s a lot of weight and just not my taste. So I stumbled across a shop which produces 3D printed models for tanks. Butlers Printed Models
