Knight Models has revealed its March releases for their Batman Miniature Game and DC Universe Miniature Game. The releases include not only new figures but also a new campaign book.
There’s a couple interesting things of note with this release. The new Arkham Knight Campaign Book comes with an exclusive Arkham Knight (Jason Todd) with sniper rifle. The figure has three different heads to choose from.
This also represents the company’s first “DC Multiverse” release with Catwoman. These releases will include rules for use of the figure in both the Batman Miniature Game as well as the DC Universe Miniature Game.
Being releases this month includes the Batman Miniature Game Arkham Knight Campaign Book, Nightwing, Penguin and Street Demonz, Penguin Lieutenant, and Catwoman. All for use with the Batman Miniature Game.
For the DC Universe Miniature Game releases include Catwoman, Aquaman, Supergirl, and markers for Sinestro Corp, Green Lantern, and Superman.
Knight Models is starting 2017 off right with more reveals of models we’ll be getting down the road, this time for the Batman Miniature Game. In kicking off their Instagram account the game publisher has a few photos but two stand out.
Standing along with the recently released “Dynamic Duo” of Batman and Robin is what looks like a new Catwoman figure, this one featuring her in her iconic purple leotard costume which I believe debuted in 1993 with Catwoman #1.
We also get a look at the Riddler gang featuring a new Riddler sculpt (I think), and gang members that are a bit of a throwback to the Batman ’66 gang as well as female member of the team. Previously a gang featuring the Riddler and a “bot army” (don’t ask). In the background we also see a Batmobile defaced, which actually looks pretty cool.
It’s unknown when these figures will be released other than 2017.
Knight Models continues to crank out some impressive figure for their Batman the Miniature Game. They recently announced an expansion of their game line based on Batman the Animated Series, and the first two figures have been released.
New to the game are a Batman and Catwoman based on Batman the Animated Series. Also released for the game is Katana, Black Manta, a Militia Gattling Brute (for the Scarecrow’s gang), and The Riddler’s Mech (yes a bit odd unless someone can point me where this happened).
