Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, is coming to Marvel: Crisis Protocol!

Atomic Mass Games has revealed that Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, is coming to Marvel: Crisis Protocol! Kamala is coming to the miniature game and Atomic Mass have revealed a look at the figure.

Kamala is an Inhuman with the power to shapeshift, a healing factor, and elasticity so expect her to join the Inhumans faction. The character is also notable because she’s one located outside of New York City (she lives in Jersey City) as well as being Pakistani American and Muslim. The character was a groundbreaking one quickly finding a fanbase.

While the game is based on Marvel comics, Ms. Marvel is slated to come to the small screen in a television series that’ll be coming to Disney+.

Created by Sana Amanat, G. Willow Wilson, Gene Colan, Jamie McKelvie, and Adrian Alphona the character debuted in Captain Marvel #14 in August 2013.

Mantic Unveils XL Ships for Armada

The medium and large ships for Armada are pretty massive but they’re nothing compared to the Extra Large ships! Mantic has revealed four new extra large ships for Armada which are available for preorder now.

BASILEAN DICTATOR

Perhaps the largest and most powerful vessels in any human navy, these incredibly rare ships are a sight to behold. Despite their four masts, they are heavy and slow compared to other Basilean ships. The firepower of a Dictator-class is formidable to say the least, and their crews amongst the most disciplined in the fleet.

Pre-order it now for $29.99.

BASILEAN DICTATOR

ORC RIPPER HULK

The largest and most improbable orc vessels are the Ripper Hulks – and hulks they indeed are. Captained by the highest-ranking Krudger in the fleet, their tactics are simple but effective. In battle, they sail slowly and inexorably towards the biggest, baddest enemy ship they can reach, and set to work with their crude machinery.

Pre-order it now for $29.99.

ORC RIPPER HULK

EMPIRE OF DUST MONOLITH

The Monoliths – largest of the Ahmunite Warships – carry a portion of Nehkesharr’s power. Through the great temple of Shobik built upon their sterns, and the glimmering Jewels of Shobik embedded into the fabric of the vessels, these enormous galleys are true remnants of the necropolis-city.

Pre-order it now for $29.99.

EMPIRE OF DUST MONOLITH

DWARF DREADNOUGHT

These enormous vessels are the epitome of dwarf technology, and represent the life’s work of their Warsmith commanders. Their funnel-stacks belch thick smoke into the air as their enormous paddle-wheels propel the ship forward through a churning sea.

Pre-order it now for $29.99.

The Batman Miniature Game Is Getting an App for iOS and Android

Knight Models has revealed an app is in development for the Batman Miniature Game. An app has been wanted by the community for some time and it looks like this app delivers everything you could want. The app will be available for free.

In development for iOS and Android, the app combines all of the character cards compatible with the third edition of Batman Miniature Game. Knight Models also announced they will update and improve character cards periodically through the app to improve balance in the game.

The Batman Miniature Game app will allow players to create lists as well as feature character cards, abilities, and weapons. Players will also be able to keep track of the wounds suffered and ammunition spent firing their weapons.

In the app you will be able to:

  • Recruit crews
  • Check character cards
  • Check/manage equipment
  • Customize objective decks
  • Fully interactive cards to read details/information
  • Access rules

With the app, there also comes a big change to the Batman Miniature Game. Releases will no longer include cards. There is now an Objective card pack. Cards will be available until they’re exhausted and then they will no longer be packed in with miniatures. Cards will still be uploaded digitally to their site so those that do like to print cards can continue to do so.

The Batman Miniature Game app is in development and will be tested by the community. No date for release has been given.
