Knight Models has revealed their December releases for the DC Universe Miniature Game and the Batman Miniature Game.
The DC Universe Miniature Game is a recent release and “reskin” of the Marvel Universe Miniature Game which they’ve dubbed the “Super Hero Universe.” It’s first released featured Batman v Superman versions of DC’s trinity of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. The three get some new villains to battle in the forms of Lex Luthor in his Warsuit and Black Adam.
Knight Models has begun to tease their next releases for their Batman Miniature Game. Thought the teaser isn’t specific it looks like a new Mr. Freeze figure will be added to the game based on the Arkham video games. It’s most likely we’ll get Freeze and a crew to form a new gang for release. A lot of the major characters in Batman have gangs tailored to them with Mr. Freeze being one of the few who currently don’t.
There is currently only one other version of Mr. Freeze for the game, an original concept that I can’t think of having ever appeared in the comics and generally a disliked figure in the range.
There are two versions of the game box! The regular box retails for 99.95 € which is about $112 US (much cheaper than I expected). There’s also a version with an exclusive Harley Quinn Bombshell figure which retails for 109.99 € / about $123.
The company has also revealed the two buildings included (printed on both sides) in the game can be stacked to create a taller building. In total you get 13 figures and character cards, rule book including a special campaign, 2 full-color die-cut card buildings, 4 lamp posts markers, 4 sewer markers, “take the lead” and objective counters and dice.
The Suicide Squad: a team of incarcerated super-villains coerced into performing high-risk operations for the US Government in exchange for commuted sentences. Formally known as Task Force X, the squad’s actions are highly classified, and the team itself is highly expendable.
Knight Models has revealed a new deluxe box set is the first two-player game box for the Batman Miniature Game, containing everything you to fight out vicious street-battles between the Suicide Squad and the Joker’s crew.
The new box set features 13 figures and character cards, rule book including a special campaign, 2 full-color die-cut card buildings, 4 lamp posts markers, 4 sewer markers, “take the lead” and objective counters and dice.
This is the first box set for the game. Up to this point, figures have been sold individually and in four-man gangs and the rules have been available in a hard cover book.
A price hasn’t been announced, but I’d expect it to be about $125 to $150. The wording from the announcement also makes it sound like we may see more box sets in the future.
Knight Models has revealed the second crew that will be a part of the Batman Miniature Game Game Box. The Batman Miniature Game is exactly as it sounds, a miniature game featuring characters not just from Batman, but across the DC Universe. Up to this point, one would purchase their models and gang separately along with a rule book. It sounds like Knight Models will be releasing a box set featuring two gangs, and we’re not quite sure what else right now.
Previously, it was revealed that the first gang was based on the Suicide Squad, the version from the recent movie. The game publisher has now revealed the second, also based on the film the Joker and his gang. What’s interesting is Harley Quinn is shown for both gangs.
Check out a pick of the gang below. We’ll have more updates as the rest of the box contents and price are revealed.
Knight Models has been teasing out models over the past week for what sounds like a boxed game release for their Batman Miniature Game.
Up to this point, the Batman Miniature Game has been available in a hardcover rulebook and either individual models or gangs featuring four figures. It looks like this “game box” will feature two gangs, the first revealed is the Suicide Squad.
While some of these characters have been available in other versions, this new Suicide Squad gang is based on the movie versions of the characters.
It’s unknown for certainty what the other gang available is or what else will be in the box, but it’s a guess that the Joker’s gang will be the other based on a teaser image of the Panda with a gun from the film. You can see photos of the full gang and some of the individual models below.
With the release of “The Flash and Green Arrow” expansion for the Batman Miniature Game, Knight Models gave us rules for running Suicide Squad teams. With them came special rules mimicking the team’s independent, and unpredictable, nature as well as the bombs in their heads that motivate them to work.
Today, Knight Models teased a “Suicide Squad Game Box.” No more details are available and we’ll get more details soon, but I’m excited to see what this might be.
Knight Models has revealed the new miniatures up for pre-order for their Batman Miniature Game and Marvel Universe Miniature Game. The Batman Miniature Game is seeing four new releases while the Marvel Universe Miniature Game is receiving three.
Hot on the heals of “The Flash and Arrow” expansion, Kid Flash is getting a model. He comes with the ability “Vibration Wave” which forces characters around him to take an agility test or get knocked down. He also takes advantage of the new “Speed Force” rules as well.
Stafire makes her debut with a beautifully dynamite miniature. She’s a flyer who can help you with your offensive capabilities.
Close combat, and hate for Green Arrow and the law, can be yours with Ravager.
The Batman Animated Series line of figures gets a new addition with Black Canary and her Canary Cry. The figure continues to capture the look of the animated series and is a great addition to the line.
