I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on each starting team for the upcoming Knight Models game Marvel Universe Miniature Game. With the Avengers, X-Men, and Guardians of the Galaxy to choose from, it’ll be hard to decide which is the one to start with (so might as well start with them all).
We now know who will be in the Guardians of the Galaxy starter set. Each set comes with four miniatures as well as a mini-rulebook.
The Guardians will include Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, and Rocket Raccoon. I’d assume Groot will be the miniature released in a blister along with the team.
From their description, the team looks to have a decent mix and shooting and close combat. Star-Lord fitting the quick (via his rocket boots) figure to get in position to fire off his Quad Laser and Element Gun. Rocket is all about his guns, as he should be. Gamora has a gun and her Vorpal Blade, mixed with stealth she too will be maneuvering around the board for the attack. Finally Drax is a tank and all about close combat, not just using his knives, but also acting as a bodyguard and soaking up damage for others. All of the team are the affiliation Cosmic/Hero.
With that equipment and abilities it’s easy to see how you’d play this team in the game, maneuvering with some as you shot, shooting at a distance with Rocket, and getting Drax in close for the kill.
