Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman from the DC Universe Miniature Game

While the details for the DC Universe Miniature Game are scarce we have a good look at some of the Wonder Woman, Superman, and Batman miniatures that will be released for the game.

Published by Knight Models, the game looks to use the same system as the Marvel Miniature Game, which means potentially you’ll be able to have Superman and the Hulk duke it out.

We’ll have more information as it’s released.


DC Universe Miniature Game Gets a Superman and Answers Questions

14721678_10154389914455129_639930843224036119_nWhile not officially announced, word  has gotten out that Knight Models will be expanding their tabletop miniature game line with the DC Universe Miniature Game. A teaser image began floating around the internet a few weeks ago of an ad that features Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman and the game. The ad reportedly is found within the new Suicide Squad game box for the Batman Miniature Game (along with a Harry Potter miniature game).

There were a lot of questions to be answered and it looks like we’re getting some of them with the image that’s hit the web today of Superman and his stats.

The game looks like it’ll be using a similar system as the Marvel Universe Miniature Game which means that you may be able to pit the Justice League against the Avengers, though that’s unconfirmed. That means the game won’t be compatible with the current Batman Miniature Game as the two games will use a different rules system.

Will be bringing you more information as it becomes available, but it looks like this is going to be a lot of fun!


DC Dice Masters: Green Arrow and The Flash Review: Barry Allen, Firestorm, and Superman

In September, the latest DC Dice Masters set, DC Dice Masters: Green Arrow and The Flash will be released. Wizkids hooked us up with ten booster packs and after an unboxing video, I’m now going over groupings of the cards to discuss their playability and how they stack up to previous versions of the characters.

Up next, the common Barry Allen, Firestorm, and Superman!

DC Dice Masters The Flash Green Arrow Barry Allen Firestorm Superman

Barry Allen: Super-Sonic Punch (common)

Team: Justice League

Purchase: 5 BOLT FIST

Die – Generic / Bolt & Fist / Bolt & Fist

Level: 1 3 3 / 1 4 4 / 2 7 4

Character Previous Set: None (though The Flash has appeared in both DC Dice Masters: Justice League and DC Dice Masters War of Light)

Synergy -While Barry Allen is active, you may pay BOLT FIST to give Barry Allen character die +2A and +4D (until end of turn). (Synergy abilities can be used while the character is active, any time you could use a Global Ability).

Thoughts: Wow is The Flash expensive in sets. The character at a cost of 5 where you must use a BOLT and FIST to purchase make this not the easiest card to purchase. What I do like about the card is that it really reflects the speed of the character with his ability to act quickly and up his attack and defense. Compared to other Flash dice, the cost is similar and potentially getting a 9A/8D character is solid. Still, when it comes to speedsters, I’d rather get the Justice League versions that can be unblockable and are 1 less to purchase. Still, since this is named The Flash, use both!


Firestorm: Host of the Matrix (common)

Team: Justice League

Purchase: 4 BOLT

Die – Bolt / Bolt and Bolt / Bolt and Bolt

Level: 1 3 5 / 1 4 6 / 2 5 6

Character Previous Set: DC Dice Masters: Justice League, DC Dice Masters: Justice League OP

When Firestorm attacks, deal 1 damage to target character die for each character die in your Field Zone.

Thoughts: We’ve seen Firestorm before and compared to it, this is one of the better versions of the card. The die characteristics are exactly the same, so all that differs is its ability.The ability to deal a high amount of damage in an attack will make this a key character to potentially wipe out tough characters. I myself tend to play a style with a lot of characters attacking, so this will be one I’ll be looking at when putting together a team, especially a Justice League one.

The chance to deal a high amount of damage in an attack will make this a key character to potentially wipe out tough characters and is one way to handle that potential issue. While on its own it’s ok, I can see it being a nice back up character used in certain situations. I myself tend to play a style with a lot of characters attacking, so this will be one I’ll be looking at when putting together a team, especially a Justice League one.


Superman: Man of Tomorrow (common)

Team: Justice League

Purchase: 6 SHIELD

Die – Shield / Shield and Shield / Shield and Shield

Level: 1 4 6 / 2 6 7 / 2 7 8

Character Previous Set: DC Dice Masters: Justice League, DC Dice Masters: Justice League OP, and DC Dice Masters World’s Finest

Superman gets +1A and +1D for each of your active Justice League characters.

Thoughts: This character die is similar cost to previous versions and the stats are the same as the World’s Finest version. The ability is really interesting, first because I think it’d give itself +1A and +1D, so it’d start off stronger than the WF version and slightly better than the JL version. Running just a Justice League team, I can see Superman becoming a beast to deal with easily getting in the double digests for attack and defense. Throw in Overcrush and you can easily see where this one’s going.


Final thoughts: Three interesting possible additions to Justice League teams (and teams in general). All three could be fun playing in casual and I can see some teams being put together for competitive, though the high initial purchase costs will get people to hold off of that. Still, if this set shakes up the meta like I think it will, expect to see all three of these cards of the table. Now, I’m off to go make a Justice League team.

DC Comics Dice Masters: Golden Age Superman Monthly OP

Join Superman in the fight against some of his first super villains including his monstrous double, Bizzaro, and the tormenting trickster, Mr. Mxyzptlk, in DC Comics Dice Masters: Golden Age Superman.

Wizkids has announced a new Dice Masters organized play with three new cards featuring classic art from Superman comics.

The organized play kit has stores putting together events in order to get players to regularly come in and those who participate receive prizes for participation and depending on what place they come in.

This kit features three cards, Bizarro: Golden Age Superman, Mxyzptlk: Golden Age Superman, and  Thrown Car: Basic Action Card. The first two are prize support with the last being participation prizes.

Bizarro looks to be a new card that halves something…

Mr. Mxyzptlk looks to have you drawing cards until you get a Villain die with the rest going into your bag…

Thrown Car is a bit of a spin on Enraged which was found in the AvX set and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set.
